This volume presents in English translation the autobiographies of four Tibetan lamas in the land of Dolpo, which was part of Western Tibet until the end of the 18th century. Three of them were born in the 16th century, and one in the 17th. This book, read by itself, presents a unique account of Tibetan religion as lived in an enclosed Tibetan- speaking community, while at the same time serving as an additional volume to the author's previous reports on Tibetan religion in Himalayan areas.
