Abstract: (Show)
This article presents several Tibetan texts, along with English translations, concerning the area of Thag (in present day Mustang District) in Northern Nepal. Snellgrove's introduction briefly considers the historical situation of Thag as a Tibetan cultural area. He explains how he came upon several editions of these texts and summarizes the places described by them. Several maps, illustrations, and photos are included. (Ben Deitle 2005-12-14)
