Scholarly Content


Analyze the Autobiography of the 5th Dalai Lama as the beginning of a better understanding of the history of the Dalai Lamas as individuals, as members of an ecclesiastic and political institution and as subjects of literary and rhetorical invention.

We intend to integrate digital texts of classical Tibetan-language biographies with digital animated maps, timelines and images to present significant events in the lives of the Dalai Lamas as well as to reveal hitherto unnoticed connections between biographical events, geographic locations, social historical contexts and literary and rhetorical expression.
