This book explores new horizons of Diaspora formulation as Tibetan diaspora has opened new perspectives for a diaspora to articulate identity and politicize the issue at the international level. It has underlined the rubrics of consolidation and mobilization of a diaspora in hostland. The art of diasporism becomes most evident and sharp if a diaspora is situated in the motherland of religion. In this context, the formation of government-in-exile by Tibetan community represents the power of diaspora politics in the contemporary world. Unlike the African diaspora in India, the Tibetan diaspora has become a landmark for other diaspora. The Tibetan diaspora .has offered innumerable challenges to academicians for exploration of dialectics of religion, motherland and diasporism in the so called terrain of rationality. The Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan diaspora have opened new dimensions in the diaspora studies. The dimensions are primarily related to the nature, and context of elements of bonding with reference to triadic relationship of home land, host land, and the community. India, the motherland of religion of Buddhism, has played landmark contribution, in the process of diasporism in Tibetan community. The elements of bonding become more important in the context of globalization in contemporary period. The process has opened unlimited space for the framework of diaspora to various scattered communities across the world. Not only Tibetan diaspora, but also African, Indian and Chinese diaspora have witnessed emergence of similar tendencies.
