This book is about the Eurasian mythology in the Tibetan Epic of Ge-sar. Ge-sar is the most extraordinary Tibetan legendary figure and remains, despite various unsuccessful attempts to tie him down into a context of historical reality, a great mythological character. The figure of Ge-sar has served as a repository of traditions that, through the corridor of the Eurasian people steppe belt, reach back into the world of Germanic and Greek legends and into Megalithic religious beliefs.
