Text is in English. "The text is in two main parts, a description of the Thankas, with iconographic data, and an account of the lives and thoughts of the Eight Masters. Our intention was not so much to produce a work for the use of academic circles as to make known, through these great works of religious inspiration, the more important aspects of Mahayana philosophy and iconography to a wider circle of readers. We have, therefore, tried to acoid technicalities and to steer the middle path in matters of controversy. " - from the introduction by Palden Thondup Namgyal.; Folio
