It was from the Tibetan collection-Kanjur that the Russian, von Schiefner, an Encyclopaedic scholar made translation into German. Among these were the Tibetan Studies from which brilliant folklorist, Ralston, gave us the present translation. The matter and the versions of the Tales have their Roots far down in the older Soil then that of the time when the Kanjur was compiled Ralston, in his introduction, shows us some extent, how old, how mixed, how World wide are these Folklore sources.
The present book contains translation into English of fifty Tibetan tales with a detailed introduction, which contains useful information about Tibet & its culture. An index of the word in the end increases it utility
The Book is being published under the series Bibliotheca Indo Buddhica.
