Notes

[284] A type of elemental spirit.
[285] In Bellezza, Antiquities of Northern Tibet, I employ the standard word for “bride” (namamna’ ma), but the site is actually known by an epithet for bride in the local tökéstod skad dialect (pamodpa’ mo).
[286] In Bellezza, Antiquities of Northern Tibet, I mistakenly call this site “YukhambuYu kham bu.” This was the result of a faulty transcription of orally derived information.
[287] In Bellezza, Antiquities of Northern Tibet, I furnish a less desirable rendering of this site name.
