AN INTRODUCTION TO THE GRAMMAR OF THE TIBETAN LANGUAGE
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE GRAMMAR OF THE TIBETAN LANGUAGE
Description
About the Book:

The present work is designed not only to help the general reader to grasp the grammatical structure of the Tibetan language in his endeavour to study the general literature of Tibet but also the Buddhist scholar who is particularly interested in the vast Tibetan literature which includes almost all the Buddhist works of India. It will prove equally useful for a Sanskrit student who will discover herein a key to unlock the immense volumes - faithful translations of the Sanskrit texts - which exist in Tibetan language on the manners, customs, opinions, knowledge, ignorance, superstitions, hopes and fears of the great part of Asia, especially, India in former days.

The work contains all the requisites of an elementary grammar. It undertakes to analyse and classify the grammatical forms of the Tibetan language. It recounts all the parts of Speech, the Declension and Conjugation systems, Pronunciation, Syntax and Prosody. As exercises in grammatical rules it contains specimens of composition from the standard works, particularly the extracts from the text of Situ Sum-Tag, the exhaustive commentary on Thonmi Sam Bhota's Sum-Chu-pa, Tag-jug-pa, Dag-je-Salwai Melong and others. In this work the author has followed the monumental work of Alexander Csoma de Koros, supplementing it here and there with materials drawn from Situ-Sum-Tag, the exhaustive commentary on Thonmi Sam Bhota's Sum-Chu-pa and Tag-jug-pa.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
