Labrang Monastery : A Tibetan Buddhist Community On The Inner Asian Borderlands, 1709-1958, Paul Nietupski

Paul K Nietupski

The Labrang Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Amdo and its extended support community are one of the largest and most famous in Tibetan history. This crucially important and little-studied community is on the northeast corner of the Tibetan Plateau in modern Gansu Province, in close proximity to Chinese, Mongol, and Muslim communities. It is Tibetan but located in China.
