My Third Expedition to Tibet gives knowledge and insight about the people and places in Tibet, and also provides important information about the many rare manuscripts which existed and were being carefully preserved in Tibet at that time. It also depicts the life and many contributions to literature and history made by Gendun Choephel, the renowned and most progressive intellectual of modern Tibet. The contents of this book are further enriched by the inclusion of Professor Samdhong Rinpoche’s well-researched preface to Gendun Choephel’s rGyal-khams rigspas bskor-ba gTam-rgyud gSer-gyi Thang-ma (The Tales of the Golden Plain, the Story of a Cosmopolitan’s Journey).
