The Csoma de Koros--Symposium on Tibetan, Central Asian and Buddhist studie
held at Velm near Vienna in 1981 demonstrated the quickly expanding
development of the more and more differentiated field of Tibetan Studies.
Alongside of the traditionally established fields of Tibetological
research, history, cultural, history, linguistics, and literature, the new
presence of research in the original theoretical contributions of the
Tibetans within their religious and philosophical culture was a
distinguishing feature of this conference. That the originality of the
Tibetan masters goes well beyond their fascinating achievements in Buddhist
exegesis, is clearly recognized. It is the contents, variety, details and
significance of their theoretical thought that are now to be defined and
explained on the basis of critical philological work and historical
interpretation. 58 scholars from East and West participated in the metting
and 48 original papers--37 in English, 9 in German, 2 in French--are
presented in the two systematically divided volumes of the proceedings.
Both volumes went quickly out of print. Only the present reprint makes his
recent significant step in the development of Tibetan Studies available to
be general public.
