Folk Culture of Tibet is a general exposition of the miscellaneous Tibetan beliefs and superstitions. It includes chapters on Tibetan superstitions on the birth of a child, man and his clothes, foods and animals. From sections on the significance of the Language of Ravens to the Tibetan traditional method of interpreting dreams. Also included is a translation of Karma Chakme's rare text The Mirror of Omens. Above all, Folk Culture of Tibet brings to the readers a glimpse of the rich and innocent Tibetan culture that sees life through a Mirror of Omens, seeking meaning in the Language of Raven and the flashes of dreams. Such a work can surely enrich the readers with a thorough understanding of the timeless and transcendental Tibetan mind.Printed Pages: 110.
