Preface

The practices of Buddhism throughout the world and Ladakh in particular may appear to exemplify a faith of paradoxical dimensions. Therefore, as a scholar of Ladakh studies, I decided to make a clear picture of Ladakh gonpas before the readers, to help them to solve their questions, puzzles as well as insights picture about Buddhism.

I started research work on Thiksey monastery in 2002. This book is the out come of my study over a long period of time in which history and culture of the monastery have been made. Now it would become a reference source on Thiksey monastery for research scholars, teachers and tourists.

Note:

"When Cang Sems Sherab Zangpo didn't get positive response by the King Dragspa Bumde, he decided to visit Nubra to get favour of his brother Dragspa Bum who was at that time in Nubra. Accordingly he alnogwith his assistant went Nubra and met him there. Dragspa Bum warmly welcomed them. But some Ladakhi historians have a opinion that when Cang Sems Sherab Zangpo visited Nubra. Nima Namgyal was the king there. I am completely disagree with this statement. However, I have referred his name."
