Notes

[278] I have presented the name of this site as Mönra YargenMon ra yar gan (Bellezza, Antiquities of Northern Tibet), a less desirable spelling. YarkéYar rked and markémar rked are common drokpa’brog pa geographical terms referring to above and below the “waist” (base), respectively, of hills and mountains.
[279] This is the local name for what was formerly called Oma Doring’O ma rdo ring (named for the old camp or township) (Bellezza, Antiquities of Northern Tibet). In the local Stod dialect, the jampo’jam po (“smooth”) part of the site’s name denotes terrain that is free of rocks and other obstructions.
[280] Named after A Tak PelmoA stag dpal mo/A Tak LumoA stag klu mo, a prominent goddess in the GesarGe sar epic.
[281] The wife of the Tibetan epic hero, Ling GesarGling ge sar.
[282] A type of fierce martial spirit.
[283] A type of powerful elemental spirit.
