Preface

I have collected Tibetan inscriptions from rocks, stones, mani walls and monasteries’ walls of Ladakh. The Tibetan inscriptions were first time collected by A.H. Francke in 1909. Since than no scholar collected Tibetan manuscripts and inscriptions from Ladakh. The collection of Tibetan inscriptions by Francke could not be able to draw much attention of historians. However, I have found that Tibetan inscriptions as well as manuscripts have historical and scientific values. No doubt the original inscriptions and manuscripts were in a bad condition, but knowing to this fact that collection shall pave the way for future scientific treatment of these documents which are so important for the historical explorations of Ladakh region, I took great pain and completed the half done work of Francke.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
