Libu Lakhi (Li Jianfu 李建富, Dawa Tenzin ཟླ་བ་བསྟན་འཛིན།; Tsering Bum ཚེ་རིང་འབུམ།; Charles Kevin Stuart (2009)
This remarkable book is the product of a fruitful collaboration among a native speaker of na53 mʑi53 kha11 tho11, Tibetan and Chinese consultants, and a dedicated group of Westerners resident in China. It affords the reader an intimate glimpse into traditional na53 mʑi53 life, now well on its way to disappearing along with hundreds of similar minority cultures in the world.

AHP 28: Review: Trade and Society along the Ancient Silk Road

Bina Sengar (2013)
Ladakh in the twenty-first century is well known as a religious and touristic destination as well as an Indian border territory with Kargil and Siachin - significant military posts. In contrast, the commercial role of Ladakh in trade within the Himalayan region and along the Silk Route is less explored. In this well-researched book, Fewkes presents various components of Ladakh's ethno-history of trade. She focuses on Ladakh since the eighteenth century and its status as a t...

AHP 21: A Space for the Possible: Globalization and English Language Learning for Tibetan Students in China

Rebecca A Clothey; Elena McKinlay (2012)
With growth in China's tourist industry and international trade in recent decades, learning English has become a threshold for determining who can get what others cannot. There are many opportunities to master and become culturally competent in English in the prosperous urban and eastern coastal areas where foreign businesses and tourists are common. Disparities between east and west, urban and rural, and majority and minority areas continue to widen in China, raising the question of how to i...

AHP 47: A RIG RGAD PO THREATENS THE BUDDHA WITH HIS WALKING STICK

Sangs rgyas bkra shis སངས་རྒྱས་བཀྲ་ཤིས། (2017)
I heard that A rig rgad po was from a place that has the name he is known by - A rig rgad po – which is near Mtsho sngon po (Qinghai Lake). The people there are very traditional, very direct in their manner, and devoted Buddhists. They often go on pilgrimage to Lha sa. Stories about A rig rgar po describe their travels and encounters with Buddhas in Lha sa. I heard stories about A rig rgad po from my father's brother, Mkhyen rab rgya mtsho (b. ~1973), during the time I was a student at a scho...

AHP 28: Review - Revisiting Rituals in a Changing Tibetan World

Christina Kilby (2013)
Featuring Buddhist ritual life in its diverse manifestations across the Tibetan Plateau, this volume engages the task of defining 'ritual' by analyzing moments of ritual change. Whether political regime change, technological innovation, or social upheaval, external catalysts of religious transformation have been prominently visible in the Tibetan cultural world since the mid-twentieth century. This volume takes up the sociopolitical shifts of the recent period as a call to investigate how rit...

Wen Xiangcheng 文祥呈 (2017)
Uncle Dongba had a very beautiful cousin. Every day he thought about how to have sex with her but, sadly, he never had a chance to make his wish come true. One day he came up with an idea, lay on his bed, and pretended to be seriously ill. Then he asked one of his friends to inform his cousin that he was very ill. His cousin was very concerned about him and came to visit. When she arrived, Uncle Dongba told her, "I have a very strange disease. Only one person can help me. He is a powerfu...
