About this book

This book is intended as a background and an introduction to a little-known corner of the Buddhist world, existing in isolation in India. After being closed to outsiders for thirty years, for military and strategic reasons, Ladakh was partly opened in 1974, and immediately became an important destination for the serious student of Buddhism and Tibetology.
