Description

This extensive collection of Tibetan proverbs offers a precious insight into the wisdom, humor and traditions of Tibet. This book is a testament to the folklore and culture of Tibet, and as such will be enjoyable and informative both for Tibetans and for others who share an interest in Tibet and its people.

With subject-matters ranging from the natural landscape and livelihood of the people to human personality traits and the tenets of Buddhist philosophy, these sayings reflect the values and attitudes of the people who coined them and of their community.

Lhamo Pemba has transcribed the proverbs from their natural oral form into written Tibetan and has also provided an English translation, with contextual explanations where appropriate.
