Abstract: (Show)

This paper explores the history of Zhalu (zha lu) monastery in Tsang (gtsang) province of Tibet, and its possible relationship with Atiśa. Both textual evidence and clues from the monastery's art are taken into account. In particular, one chapel seems to contain a representation of the Trisamayarāja Buddha, the iconography of which Atiśa wrote about. (Ben Deitle 2006-05-03)
