Abstract: (Show)
In tracing the early history of Penpo Nalendra ('phan po na len+d+ra, aka 'phan yul na len+d+ra) Monastery, Jackson provides accounts of its first eight abbots and of the conflicts the monastery had with Gelukpa (dge lugs pa) monasteries in the late 1480s. Included is a Tibetan history of Nalendra, a listing of the traditional divisions and estate holdings of the monastery, and a listing of more recent abbots.(Kevin Vose 2004-04-06)
