The creative and controversial Tibetan intellectual Amdo Gendun Chophel (1903-1951) composed his Guide to India during the 1930s while visiting many of the ancient sites of Indian Buddhism, which had only recently been the object of archaeological rediscovery and modern religious revival. His work offered traditionally minded pilgrims from the remote Tibetan highlands clear instructions on the correct identification of authentic Buddhist sites, as well as a unique practical guide for using the Indian rail system. The Guide to India is one of the first works of modern Tibetan literature, and was to become the most widely used manual of contemporary Tibetan pilgrimage.Printed Pages: 174.
