Title: Biographical Notes on Phyag-na rdo-rje (1239-1267) (abstract)
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Turrell V. Wylie

Description: An abstract for a larger article, this source discusses the lack of biographical information available for Tibetan lay people. This lack results from the fact that Tibetan historiography deals primarily with the history of Buddhism. The situation then requires inferential data to be constructed on the basis of information from related religious figures. (Mark Premo-Hopkins 2004-03-08)
