Author/Creator: Todd Gibson
One Sentence Summary: In this brief communication Gibson investigates the Tibetan term dgra lha, which commonly refers to a particular type of deity.

Description: In this brief communication Gibson investigates the Tibetan term dgra lha, which commonly refers to a particular type of deity. He argues that the term may actually have its roots in another term, sgra bla, evidenced in Bönpo (bon po) literature and epics of the Tibetan dynasty. He looks at how the term may have changed over time, and what impact this revised etymology would have the interpretation of dgra lha in various literary sources. (Ben Deitle 2006-01-27)
