Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
29 leaves in wooden boards, Sanscrit texts transposed into Tibetan script, written by various hands in Uchen script. The larger pages are scriptural texts, probably written by lamas; the smaller are copies made by lay people, to be carried in personal bags and packs. These most likely are from the Indian side of the Himalyas.
