The present book speaks about the life of the Tibetan people in their own homes. The account is based on the author's first-hand knowledge of Tibetan life during a residence of nearly twenty-five years, from conversation with his Tibetan acquaintances in their own language, and not through interpreters. Tibet still presented a virgin field of enquiry inspite of the fact being shut-off from the outer world by its immense mountain barriers. There has been little change in the inner life of the people during the last thousand years. As the land area is very large and the intercourse of one part with another is restricted, the manner and customs vary in different districts and provinces. This should be kept in mind comparing accounts of different sojourners.
