Writers on the political history of India find themselves obliged to take note of Taranatha's History, no less than those writing the history of Indian literature and Indian logic, not to speak of the investigators of the history of Buddhism itself. This English translation of Taranatha's History of Buddhism in India belongs, indeed, to the class of finest translations of Tibetan works in English. The age-old tradition of Tibetan translation of treatises with one Pandit of the source language and one translator of the destination language and a third person for checking and editing has been faithfully preserved in the preparation of this work. The present edition of the work has the additional attraction of carrying a Foreword to it by an eminent Tibetologist Professor S. Rinpoche, Director of the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, Samath, Varanasi. PRINTED PAGES: 526.
