Minor bookstamp Delhi bookstore, otherwise in very good condition. xi, 219 S. isbn 8185689687 -- Seven essays are presented including: "Ge sar of gLing: Shamanic Power and Popular Religion" by Samuel, and "Cham: Ritual as Myth in a Ladakhi Gompa" by Ana Marko. The papers in this collection, with one exception, originated in a session on Tibet and Himalayan Societies held at the Australian Anthropological Society conference at the University of Newcastle, Australia, in August 1988. The conveners of the session wanted as wide a representation as possible of Tibetan and Himalayan specialists from Australia and New Zealand. They suggested that participants might choose to address a common theme, "Tantra and Everyday Religion". The term "everyday" or "popular" Religion was meant to include both the formal Religious Traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and Bon as part of everyday Tibetan life and the so called "folk religion".
