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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
