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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
