By Stephen Boyanton on December 26, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Toni Huber has made the study of Tibetan pilgrimage his specialty and with this book he has set a new standard which all other studies will have to live up to. Drawing on historical documents and interviews with people who participated in the pilgrimage earlier in this century, Huber describes in great detail the Rongkhor Chenmo, previously one of the most important pilgrimages in all of Tibet. Unlike many sources on Tibetan pilgrimage, which content themselves with merely describing the official doctrinal explanations for pilgrimage, this book explores more deeply the motivations behind pilgrimage and how it was (and is) understood in Tibetan culture. Anyone interested in Tibetan pilgrimage will find this a fascinating and worthwhile read.

This is a very technical and esoteric book; one doesn't just read right through it in a couple of days, but it promises to be great as all Oxford
books are.
