This week our featured books are Sources of Tibetan Tradition, edited by Kurtis R. Schaeffer, Matthew T. Kapstein, and Gray Tuttle, and The Tibetan History Reader, Edited by Gray Tuttle and Kurtis R. Schaeffer. You can enter our book giveaway for a chance to win FREE copies of both books.
In today’s Tibet-themed post, we have an excerpt from Sources of Tibetan Tradition: a timeline detailing important events in Tibetan history, beginning in 247 B.C.E. with Nyatri Tsenpo’s election as king and ending in 1951 C.E. with the “Seventeen-Point Agreement.” (The Tibetan History Reader also contains this timeline.)
