Festschrift for Per Kværne

Per Kværne has made an inestimable contribution to the study of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan art and, above all, the Bon religion. This volume contains scholarly articles by some forty scholars in Tibetan Studies from twenty different countries written to honour him on the occasion of his 70th birthday.

In keeping with the breadth of Professor Kværne’s scholarship, the volume brings together articles that deal with ritual, mythology, historiography, iconography, grammar, medicine and healing, relics, spiritual songs, nuns and female reincarnation lineages and monastic organization in Tibetan and Himalayan societies, both Bon and Buddhist.
