Tibetan Buddhists in the Making of Modern China by Gray Tuttle
English | ISBN: 0231134479 | 2007 | PDF | 360 pages | 3,9 mb
The events of the past half century have led many to conclude that relations between Tibet and China have always been marked by mutual suspicion and acrimony.
However, as Gray Tuttle documents in this impressive study, networks of close connection existed between the two nations as recently as the first decades of the 20th century, with Chinese monks studying in Tibetan monasteries and the Panchen Lama performing tantric rituals to protect China from Japanese invasion. If past is in fact prologue, there is much to be learned from a careful reading of the fascinating story that Gray Tuttle tells.Download from NitroFlare
