A History of Zhang Zhung and Tibet, Volume One explores the ancient pre-Buddhist civilization of Zhang Zhung that flourished in Western and Northern Tibet 4,000 years ago. Considered the cradle of Tibetan culture with the revered Mount Kailash at its center, the Zhang Zhung kingdom – where the indigenous Bön religion was practiced – nurtured a profound knowledge still available to the modern world. In this critical analysis of translated text from primary sources, internationally known dzogchen teacher and scholar Chögyal Namkhai Norbu offers a comprehensive look at an extraordinary civilization that directly influenced the development of Tibet’s cultural and Buddhist traditions.
