ALEX. CSOMA DE Kb'fib's, the pioneer student of Tibetan, in the 
preface of his Tibetan-English-Dictionary, published in 1834, wrote 
as follows : 

"When there shall be more interest taken for Buddhism (which 
has much in common with the spirit of true Christianity) and for 
diffusing Christian and European knowledge throughout the most 
eastern parts of Asia, the Tibetan Dictionary may be much im- 
proved, enlarged, and illustrated by the addition of Sanskrit terms." 

The result of his investigations, to speak in Csoma's own words, waa 
that the literature of Tibet is entirely of Indian origin. The im- 
mense volumes on different branches of science, etc., being exact 
or faithful translations from Sanskrit works, taken from Bengal, Magadha, 
Gangetic or Central India, Kashmir, and Nepal, commencing from the 
seventh century after Christ. And that many of these works have been 
translated (mostly from Tibetan) into the Mongol, Manchu, and the 
Chinese languages ; so that by this means the Tibetan language became 
in Chinese Tartary the language of the learned aa the Latin in Europe. 
In the year 1 889 I brought these opinions of that original investiga- 
tor to the notice of Sir Alfred Croft, K.C.I.E., the then Director of Public 
Instruction in Bengal, and explained to him the necessity of compiling 
a Tibetan-English Dictionary on the lines indicated by Csoma de Korbs 
for the use of Tibetan students and particularly to assist European 
scholars in the thorough exploration of the vast literature of Tibet, 
which, besides indigenous works, comprises almost all the Buddhist 
religious works of India, including the great collections of the Kahgyur 
and the Tangyur. Shortly before this Sir Alfred Croft had received a 
communication from the late Right Hon'ble Professor F. Max Miiller on 
the desirability of translating into English a Sanskrit-Tibetan work 
on Buddhist terminology, which was looked for with interest, because 
it was expected to throw light on many obscure points of Buddhist- 
Sanskrit literature. The philosophical terms of that literature, many 


of which were of extremely doubtful meaning, had been translated 
with literal accuracy into Tibetan in early times, and it was antici- 
pated that an analysis of the meaning of these terms would elucidate 
that of the original Sanskrit words, of which they were the equivalent 
renderings. Being impressed with the importance of the proposed work, 
Sir Alfred Croft, in a memorandum addressed to Government, wrote 
as follows : 

" Babu Sarat Chandra Das has brought with him four dictionaries 
of the classical Tibetan ; one of these being a well-known Tibetan- 
Sanskrit Dictionary, compiled from a large number of named Tibetan 
as well as standard Sanskrit works, and dating from the 13th century 
A.D., and another being a Sanskrit-Tibetan Dictionary, which explains 
the Tantrik portion of the Buddhist Scriptures. The external arrange- 
ment of the dictionary will be as follows: The Tibetan words will 
be placed first in alphabetical order; next their accepted Sanskrit 
equivalents ; next the English rendering of the Tibetan terms ; then 
will follow what is to be a special and valuable feature of the new 
dictionary. The meaning of each technical term is to be illustrated 
by extracts, with exact references from Sanskrit-Buddhist and Tibetan 
works. Further, it is proposed that Babu Sarat Chandra Das should 
include in the dictionary words of modern Tibetan which were not 
known to Csoma or Jaschke. The materials which he has amassed 
during his two journeys to and residence in Tibet give him excep- 
tional facilities for making the work complete." 

These recommendations having received the sanction of Government 
in June 1889, I was placed on special duty in connection with the 
compilation of the proposed dictionary. In 1899, when the work of 
compilation was brought to a close, the Hon'ble Mr. C. W. Bolton, c.s.i., 
then Chief Secretary to the Government of Bengal, entrusted the revision 
of the work to the Revd. Graham Sandberg and Revd. William Heyde, 
and deputed Professor Satis Chandra Acharya, M.A,,, who had made Buddhist 
Sanskrit and Pali works his special study, to co-operate with me. My 
respectful thanks are, therefore, due to Sir Alfred Croft for the keen 
interest he took in my Tibetan studies and for his kind help at the inception 
of the work, and to Mr. Bolton for securing the services of the two 
Tibetan scholars the Revd. Graham Sandberg and Revd. William Heyde 
for its successful completion. I also record my obligations to Sir John 


Edgar, K.C.I.E., formerly Chief Secretary to the Government of Bengal ; to 
Dr. Emil Schlagintweit of Bavaria, and to the Hon'ble W. W. Rockhillj 
Author of The Land of Lamas for encouragement, assistance, and advice 
during the prosecution of my researches. Great is the debt of gratitude 
which I owe to the Revd. Gf. Sandberg for various acts of kindness. 
Without his scholarly and efficient aid this work would hardly have assumed 
its present shape, as he has given a scientific finish to the work which 
it was not in my power to do. 


In studying the origin and growth of Tibetan literature and the 
landmarks in the history of that language, Jaschke, the compiler of the 
second Tibetan-English Dictionary (published in 1882), noticed only two 
periods of literary activity. Had that critical student of Tibetan been 
in possession of works of modern literature, which dates from the 
establishment of the Dalai Lama's sovereignty over whole Tibet in the 
beginning of the 18th century A.D., he would certainly have modified 
his remarks on the subject. Neither he nor Csoma de Korbs had any 
means or opportunities of studying either the current literature of every- 
day business or the refined, idiomatic literature of Tibet itself, which 
is quite distinct from the Indian literature that was translated or 
imported into the language. They do not seem to have ever during 
the course of their study of Tibetan come across works on drama, 
fiction, correspondence, etc. It is, therefore, no wonder that the compiler 
of the later dictionary should assign only two periods to the history 
of the literature of Tibet, entirely ignoring the third, which is indeed 
not the least important of the three. 

The first period, to describe it in the language of Jaschke, is 
the Period of Translations, which, however, might also be entitled the 
Classical Period, for the sanctity of the religious message conferred 
a corresponding reputation and tradition of excellence upon the 
form in which it was conveyed. This period begins in the second 
half of the seventh century A.D., when Thon-mi Sambhota (the 
good Bhota or Tibetan), the minister of King Srongtsan Grampo, 
returned to Tibet after studying the Sanskrit language under an 
eminent Brahman teacher of Magadha. "His invention of the Tibetan 
alphabet gave two-fold impulse: for several centuries the wisdom of 


India and the ingenuity of Tibet laboured in unison and with the 
greatest industry and enthusiasm at the work of translation. The 
tribute due to real genius must, be accorded to these early pioneers 
of Tibetan grammar. They had to grapple with infinite wealth and 
refinement of Sanskrit; they had to save the independence of their 
own tongue, while they strove to subject it to the rule of scientific 
principles, and it is most remarkable how they managed to produce 
translations at once . literal and faithful to the spirit of the original." 

The Classical Period may be divided into three stages. The first 
or the earliest stage terminated with the downfall of the first histor- 
ical monarchy, when King Langdarma fell by the hand of an 
assassin. The second stage commenced with the introduction of the 
system of chronology, called the Vrihaspati cycle of 60 years, in 
Tibet by an Indian Buddhiat called Chandra Nath and Chilu Pandit 
of Tibet in 1025 A.D. This was the age of Milaraspa and Atisa, 
whose illustrious disciple, Brom-ton Gryalwai Jungne", laid (he founda- 
tion of the first Buddhist Hierarchy in Tibet and established the 
great monastery of Rwadeng, with a library of Sanskrit works. Jaschke's 
second period evidently corresponds with this stage, when " Tibetan 
authors began to indulge in composition of their own" and wrote 
on historical and legendary subjects. The third stage began with 
the conquest of Tibet by the Tartar Conqueror, Chingis Khan, in 
1205 A.D., when Pandit S'akya S'ri of Kashmir had returned to Tibet 
after witnessing the plunder and destruction of the great Buddhist 
monasteries of Odantapuri and Vikrama S'lla in Magadha, and the conquest 
of Bengal and Behar by the Mahomedans under Baktyar Ghilji in 
1203 A.D. In this last stage flourished the grand hierarchy of Sakya, 
which obtained supreme influence over Tibet and the country, which was 
then divided into 13 provinces, called Thikor Chusum, as a gift from 
the immediate successors of Chingis Khan. Among the most noted 
writers of the time were Sakya Pandit Kungah Gyal-tshan, Dogon 
Phag-pa, the spiritual tutor of Emperor Khubli Khan, and Shongton 
Lotsawa, who translated the Kavyadarto, of Dandi and Kshemendra's 
Avadana Ealpalala in metrical Tibetan. With the opening of the 15th 
century Buton-Rinchen Diib introduced a new era in the literature of 
Tibet, and Buddhism received fresh impulse under the rule of the 
Phagmodu chiefs, when Tibetan scholars took largely to the study of 


Chinese literature under the auspices of the Ming Emperors of China. 
During this period, called the age of Da-nying (old orthography), the great 
indigenous literature of Tibet arose. A host of learned Lotsawas and 
scholars like Tsongkhapa, Buton, Gyalwa Ngapa, Lama Taranatha, 
Desri Sangye Gyatsho, Sumpa Khampo, and others flourished. This 
was the age of the Gelug-pa, or the Yellow Cap School of Buddhism, 
founded by Tsongkhapa with Gahdan as its head-quarters. 

The third period begins with the first quarter of the 18th century, 
when Chinese suzerainty over Tibet was fully established and the 
last of the Tartar kings of the dynasty of Gushi Khan was killed 
by a General of the Jungar Tartars an incident which transferred 
the sovereignty of Tibet to the Dalai Lama, who was till then a mere 
hierarch of the Gelug-pa Church. It is within this period that 
Tibet has enjoyed unprecedented peace under the benign sway of 
the holy Bodhisattvas, and its language has become the lingua 
franca of Higher Asia. 



July 1902, J 


WHEN in December 1899 the Chief Secretary to the Government of 
Bengal handed over to us for revision the Tibetan Dictionary upon which 
Sarat Chandra Das had laboured for some dozen years, we found at our 
disposal a work embracing a mass of new and important collections on 
the language, the value of which was marred by two prominent character- 
istics first, the material had been put together in somewhat heteroge- 
neous fashion, hardly systematic enough for a dictionary ; secondly, the 
vast amount of original matter had been throughout greatly interlarded 
with lengthy excerpts from Jaschke's Dictionary, not always separable from 
the new information, and this imparted a second-hand appearance to large 
portions of the work, which was, in reality, by no means deserved. 
Moreover, in this way, no attempt had been made to improve upon 
Jaschke's definitions of many of the commoner Buddhist philosophical 
terms or to incorporate the later results of European scholarship in these 
instances. On the other hand, one was very often gratified to find, in the 
case of the more difficult philosophical terminology, that the learned 
Bengali had gone to original and little-explored sources of native informa- 
tion, such as Tsongkhapa's Lam-rim Chhenmo, and, by extracts from the 
same, furnished valuable and novel particulars under those heads. 

Accordingly, the task which the Revisors set themselves was directed 
mainly to counteracting the errors of judgment above indicated. Such a 
task proved one of a more laborious character than might be at first 
imagined ; and the fact that the work of amendment and addition has 
taken them upwards of two years of incessant toil sufficiently evidences 
its difficulty. 

First, has come the business of selection and excision. The religion 
and philosophy of Tibetan books are properly confined to the Bon cult 
and to Buddhism. There had been, however, a tendency here to draw 
in all manner of Hindu thought and mythology, because one or two works 
translated into Tibetan from the Sanskrit dealt with these matters. This 
tendency it seemed right to curb except in those instances, not at all 
infrequent, where the Vedic and Puranic Hinduism, in some measure, was 
bound up with, or bore upon, or explained, Buddhist belief or popular practice. 


Excision has had to be meted out, further, in the case of unnecessary 
repetition of otherwise properly-introduced information. Secondly, our 
task has been one of substitution. Many articles have had to be freshly 
written, or at least re-compiled. In place of the innumerable excerpts 
from Jaschke, already referred to, we have had to examine and to treat de 
novo the grammar and general usage of a large number of the commoner 
nouns, adjectives, and verbs, notably the verbs. To illustrate these 
new articles, we have had to substitute for Jaschke's examples a largo 
number of original quotations from Tibetan authors as well as a certain 
number of made-up sentences put together to exhibit various phrases 
of ordinary employment. In other articles, also, where Sarat Chandra Das 
had not thought it necessary to do more than repeat Csoma's or Jaschke's 
illustrative sentences, we have looked out fresh examples to replace them. 
Of still greater importance was it in the case of certain doctrinal terms 
and phrases of Buddhism to undertake re-definition and to connote and 
assimilate modern discussion and research on the subject. Among those 
terms may be noted such as ^J3j, rkyen ; ^3j'Q,gQl ( rtcn-hbrel f'3, Ita^wa; ^31, rdul; 
|'X| } bla-ma ; t ^-'^ ) gyun-drun ; ^'q^j^rq } dc-bsMii-pfcrjs-pa. But while 
referring to these substitutions and others of a like nature, we do 
not wish to assume too much. We would rather repeat that, in the 
matter of philosophical definitions also, wo have been frequently surprised 
and instructed by the descriptions and explanations of recondite ideas 
and terms which Sarat Chandra Das has himself succeeded in collecting 
from various native authorities. Such information would have sufficed if 
he had not sometimes confused it by the sudden and inconsequent linking 
on of Jaschke's remarks without curtailment and without any connotation 
of them to that which he had himself just set out. Thirdly, in the way of 
direct addition to the original work, there have been certain moderate sup- 
plementary contributions. Jaschke had dealt very fully with the Western 
colloquial, and we have sought to introduce a number of the colloquial 
words and phrases belonging to the Central and Eastern speech. Other 
additions have been short paragraphs on the mythological pantheon of 
Tibet and Mongolia, together with an attempt to give exact information 
on zoological and geographical points. 

It may be considered by some that there is a certain lack of reference 
to known authorities in support of many of the statements set forth in 
this work. However, it should be remembered that in dealing with a 


language so little explored as the Tibetan (or which, indeed, in one narrow 
groove that of the Kahgyur translations from Sanskrit has, in some sense, 
been over-explored), the difficulty is to find adequate authorities for the 
real and more current uses of words and phrases. The stilted verbiage 
of the Kahgyur is often mere Sanskrit idiom literally rendered into 
Tibetan, but it gives no idea of the elastic style to be found in the innumer- 
able indigenous productions of native Tibetan writers. Sarat Chandra 
Das has held familiar intercourse with modern men of learning in Tibet 
itself the professors at Tashi-lhunpo, Daipung, Samye, Mindolling, and 
other important monastic institutions. Much, therefore, has been gleaned 
by him which, though absolutely reliable, cannot be given on any stated 
authority, but must be accepted as information obtained at first hand and 
now presented for the first time. This frank acceptance should also be 
extended to much with which the Revisers have been able to supplement 
the Author's original work. Both of them have been located for lengthy 
periods where Tibetan is the language of the people of the place, and have 
been in constant communication with men from Lhasa and all parts 
of Tibet. Under such circumstances, "authorities" cannot of course 
be quoted. 

In dealing with philosophical terms, and in general with the forms to 
be met with both in the old classical works and in modern treatises, it 
will certainly be found, however, that our examples are constantly 
supported by exact references. These have been taken from writings 
of all kinds. Hitherto European scholars seem to have thought of the 
literature of Tibet as one consisting wholly of Sanskritic translation and as 
limited to the contents of the Kahgyur and Tangyur. The Author and 
the Revisers have endeavoured, by widening the sources of their quota- 
tions, to show how extensive a field is covered by mediaeval and modern 
Tibetan writers. Geography, history, biography, political government, 
accounts, astrology, are all represented. It may be remarked, for example 
that the official biographies of the successive Dalai Lamas alone fill some 
32 volumes. Nevertheless, although these scarce memoirs are included 
in Sarat Chandra Das's library, we are sorry to point out that none of 
his examples appear to have been taken therefrom. 

Knowing, however, how scanty is the range of Tibetan works avail- 
able to the majority of students, we have not failed to quote largely in 
our examples from the Kahgyur and Tangyur collections. We may 


note on this point that a suggestion has been forwarded to us that, in 
quoting from the former, special references should be given to Mons. 
Feer's Teztes tires du Kandjour. But we are afraid that the scope for 
quotation would be narrowed if our references to the Kahgyur were con- 
fined to Mons. Feer's very limited extracts published in lithograph form over 
30 years ago. As to the Index du Kandjour, which was issued in the pub- 
lications of the Muse"e Guimet 20 years back, it is evident to every 
Tibetan student that this Index was only a rtchauffe of Csoma Korbsi's 
much clearer and fuller analysis of the Kahgyur printed 68 years 
ago in the pages of the Asiatic Researches. We fear, indeed, that reli- 
ance on such works as these would rather expose us to charges of non- 
acquaintance with more recent results of European investigation in the 
present field. Although working in India, we may observe, however, 
that we have done our best to keep pace with what European Orien- 
talists have written on our subject ; but assistance has been mainly derived 
from the many memoirs compiled by Russian and German scholars, 
and we would specially recommend to notice the collections in this 
field made by Prince Ukhtomski and the very recent publications of 
Dr. Albert Grunwedel, Dr. A. Conrady, and Professor Huth. The 
analyses of the Tangyur, issued by Professor Huth during the last 
three or four years, are particularly noteworthy. To return, however, 
to the above-mentioned suggestion, we may say that not only would 
the scope be too restricted, but also there is no necessity, under 
present conditions, to refer to any mere collection of extracts. Nearly 
every capital city in Europe now has obtained possession of com- 
plete copies of the Kahgyur volumes, and in two or three libraries 
the 230 volumes of the Tangyur may be also consulted. In St. 
Petersburg are three full sets of the Kahgyur and two sets of the 
Tangyur; in Paris is a set of the Kahgyur; in one or other of the 
great German libraries both the Tibetan encyclopedia may be seen; 
in England, while curiously enough the British Museum Library 
owns only a small drawer-ful of loose Tibetan book-leaves, the 
India Office Library can boast a perfect series of both Kahgyur and 
Tangyur; and, lastly, in the Vatican Propaganda Library is preserved 
Oratio della Penna's incomplete collection of Kahgyur volumes. 

A word as to the Sanskrit equivalents following each Tibetan term. 
Sanskrit scholars will perhaps consider these equivalents rather 


unsystematically enumerated. They have, nevertheless, with regard to 
the majority of them, this particular value: they were selected 
by native Indian scholars of mediaeval and later days in collaboration 
with Tibetan lotsawas or translators, as the appropriate Sanskrit 
synonyms of the respective Tibetan words. They have been taken 
chiefly from one celebrated Sanskrit-Tibetan Dictionary, and supple- 
mented by a well-known Calcutta pandit and professor, Satis 
Chandra Acharya Vidyab/iusan, who has also considerable acquain- 
tance with literary Tibetan. The same learned professor has also, 
in numerous instances, appended a literal English rendering of the Sanskrit 
terms. These renderings have been placed within square brackets with 
the initial S outside the brackets, and he alone is responsible for such 

The system of transliteration followed is that adopted finally at the 
Vienna Congress of Orientalists ; and this system is observed in the case 
of all Tibetan and Sanskrit words intended to be literally transliterated 
and printed in italics. However, when a Tibetan cr Sanskrit proper 
name occurs in Roman characters, not as a transliteration, but in the 
English explanation of a word, or in any English sentence as an integral 
part of such explanation or sentence, the name is spelled according to the 
conventional English fashion and, in the case of Sanskrit terms or names, 
as in Sir Monier Williams's Dictionary. 

A considerable number of Tibetan words at the head of paragraphs 
will be found in larger type. This indicates either that the word is the 
root of all related terms, or that it is the most common word of the series 
and thus ostensibly that from which the others have been derived. Two 
different arbitrary signs will be found prefixed to many words. The Author, 
it seems, has marked such words as he considers archaic or gone out of 
present use with a swastika (*f,), and those words deemed by him to have 
been imported into Tibetan from the Sanskrit, whether directly or by 
derivation, he has distinguished by a double-headed dagger (*). 

In conclusion, the Revisors would point out that although they have 
been given, and have generally taken, the greatest freedom in correcting 
or rejecting the matter set forth in this work, and for that reason 
cannot justly shift responsibility for the accuracy or non-accuracy of 
that which is herein written, nevertheless they have generally not reversed 


the views and statements of the Author wherever these have seemed 
to them reasonable or fairly tenable, and to be the result of deliberately- 
formed opinion. They have felt, even when differing personally from 
the Author, that this Dictionary was Sarat Chandra Das's not their 

We must not omit to mention that, by the agency of the Chief 
Secretary to Government, certain brief comments on various portions of 
the Dictionary were received from Professor Bendall, and we have to thank 
him for his kind suggestions.

T| Ka the first letter of the Tibetan 
alphabet, corresponding in sound to the 
Sanskrit 5R or the English K. Of this 
letter we read: *|^-r i ]^*'' { K'W *-' 
rtsci'ica shei-par grags (K. g. "1 4#4) " the 
ka is called the root." As the first letter 
it has the sense of " the beginning " : 
*\W*fl'Qka-nai dag-pa pure from the begin- 
ning. Again, it can signify " power " : 
I^I^t-Jra'*)-*^ snan htsher-nifi ma-shu 
ka-med though unpleasant to hear, I have 
no power not to say it ; wqflffri^ ma 
ka-med powerless not to give ; w*3j' 
ma hgro ka-med. powerless not to go, 
i.e., cannot avoid going. ") ka has almost 
the same sense in "V$ - gfS)-i^S-q-9t &a c it 
kyaft mi-phan hchi-wa la (Lo. 35), no re- 
source avails at death. This letter seems 
to have other metaphorical meanings ; thus 
we read: "V^'a-q-nW"' 5 ^ ka sfiet bya-wa 
Mod-pa yin (K. g. f> 179) "ka, so to be 
called, is desire." 

T] I: 1. when used in indicating 
numbers ka signifies one or first. 2. in 
modern Tibetan as an affix to many words 
it denotes : the, all the, the very, 
fkab$-ka has the same meaning as 

u, on a certain occasion ; \"\ de-ka 

that very ; "ft"'*) g.nis-ka the two. 3. in a 
large number of words we find *| occurring 
as the second syllable. In some of these it 
has been added apparently as a differenti- 
ative particle ; and in the colloq. we often 
find it annexed to the older monosyllabic 
form without explainable reason.

* kyi 1. This syllable is primarily an 
inflecting afBx attached to nouns, adj., 
participles, ^-c., indicating the genitive 
case. This affix takes the form S only 
after the final letters ^ *>, or , and is 
varied to 9 where the word to which it 
is attached ends in either ^, , *, or i, and 
to 5) where the preceding final is "I or 
f, or simply to 5 if the final happens to 
be a vowel. Ex. : SV$ of Tibet, Tibetan ; 
w'3 of the way ; 3=-'^ of the north ; ^'*>5'X 
at the time of going. Sometimes, more- 
over, it is elided altogether, as in ^'^ 
Tibetan language. 2. It is annexed to 
verbal roots (with the same variations of 
form) after the manner of a continuative 
particle and imparting the gerundial sense, 
but by some modern writers used as a 
finite verb. Gerundially it generally im- 
plies an antithesis which may be ex- 
pressed in English by " though " followed 
by "yet": 8'lNrffr*r| t *t^TrA^W'^ 1 
*5or3i^ though the girl called to him, yet 
he went on the straight way without turn- 
ing his head. As affix to a finite verb it 
is frequent in the writings of Padma 
Jungnas and Milaraspa, and is also used 
in the C. colloquial. Attached to the 
verbal root it may also carry the sense of 


"as much as," "as far as" : 
|'q'g|E.'9|-|N'jj'?J;- as far as h e remembered 

this road, he followed the ox. 3. con- 
necting the auxiliary verb with the verbal 
root forms a much-used present tense : 
yjc|-I^ I am lying down. But here the 
final vowel does not often take the simple 
' (*)> e -9-> f I'^Vl is seeing ; still we have 
in books SJf ^'^"1 is eating food. [N.B. 
The use with the instrumental form 
will come under that article.]

present tense: ^'II'^KI'^'^ smon-lam

\ i, or , and generally indicating the

the IV'^'U byed-pa pohi $yra (the term of

to a verbal root to render clauses which in 
English would be introduced with " by," 
" from," &c., e.g., W^Tftf rtpr|cW^^ 
from the sword having pierced the liver, 
he was slain. Of course the prep. " from " 
might be omitted here. Again our "because" 
is often an appropriate opening to clauses 
terminated in |*i ; |*i, &c. : *3je.'q - g^<rjtf*r

being or object, the Supreme Being : | V 

"in general in this world a precious jewel 
difficult to procure is a rarity ; that which is 
much rarer still than any rarity is dkon- 
chog." A precious gem of the rarest kind is 
useful only for worldly purposes; but 
Buddha, his church, and creed, are of use 
to all living beings, both here and here- 
after, for increasing and ensuring their 
happiness. Apart from Buddhism, the 
Tibetans appear to have possessed the 
conception of the Supreme Deity in the 
term Dkon-mchog. This term, ^fr*i&i| ) is 
used in Tibetan writings for each member 
of the Buddhist triad Buddha, Dharma, 
and Sangha separately, as also for the 
three collectively ; in the latter case often 
with ffsum annexed. Mr. W. W. Eockhill 
has condemned the use of this word 
by Christian missionaries to signify 
"God." But Jaschke has elaborated 
on the subject as follows: "Buddhism 
has always sought the highest good 
not in anything material, but in the 
moral sphere, looking witA indiffer- 
ence, and indeed with contempt, on 
everything merely relating to matter. 
It is not, however, moral perfection, or 

the happiness attained thereby, which 
is understood by the 'most precious 
thing,' but the mediator or mediators who 
procure that happiness for mankind, viz., 
Buddha (the originator of the doctrine), 
the doctrinal scriptures and the corporate 
body of priests, called f^ncw, dkon-mcftog 
gsum. Now, although this triad cannot, 
by any means, be placed on a level with the 
Christian doctrine of a triune God, yet it 
will be "easily understood how the innate 
desire of man to adore and worship some- 
thing supernatural, together with the 
hierarchical tendency of the teaching class, 
have afterwards contributed to convert 
the acknowledgment of human activity 
for the benefit of others (for such it was 
undoubtedly on the part of the founder 
himself and his earlier followers) into a 
devout, and by degrees idolatrous, adora- 
tion of these three agents, especially as 
Buddha's religious doctrine did not at 
all satisfy the deeper wants of the human 
mind, and its author himself did not 
know anything of a God standing apart 
and above this world. For, whatever in 
Buddhism is found of beings to whom 
divine attributes are assigned, has either 
been transferred from the Indian and 
other mythologies, and had, accordingly, 
been current among the people before the 
introduction of Buddhism, or is the result 
of philosophical speculation that has re- 
mained more or less foreign to the people 
. at large. As, then, the original and 
etymological signification of the word is no 
longer current, and as to every Tibetan 
1 Dkon-mchog' suggests the idea of some 
supernatural power, the existence of which 
he feels in his heart, and the nature and 
properties of which he attributes more or 

less to the three agents mentioned above, 
we are fully entitled to assign to the word 
Dkon-mchog also the signification of God, 
though the sublime conception which the 
Bible connects with the word, viz., that of 
a personal absolute Omnipotent Being, 
will only with the spread of the Christian 
religion be gradually introduced and

rkyen I : In Buddhist science this 
important term expresses any co-oper- 
ating influence which serves to shape and 
bring about an event as distinguished 
from * Tgyu, its direct and obvious cause. 


In plain language, rgyu is the primary 
cause of anything, but rgyu is frequently 
controlled and modified by a co-ordinate 
influence known as rkyen. As a medical 
term, according to Jaschke, rkyen is 
differentiated from rgyu in that it indi- 
cates the pathological or secondary cause 
of disease, while the latter word denotes its 
primary or anthropological cause. How- 
ever, while assigning to rkyen the primary 
meaning of "cause" and "occasion" in 
the qualified sense of being contributary 
only to that which comes to pass, we have 
to note the apparently contradictory 
signification effect, occurrence, incident, 
event. So we meet with J^'^'i rkyen- 
fan-pa unfortunate accident; ^'*1'w 
*V he has perished by an evil incident ; 
lA^'j^'ift^Wf^wl the adversities arising 
in this life ; **'ft'tf^'ti$ > jaj an event dis- 
agreeable to one's own self ; ^"'9^' J^ bio- 
bur rkyen a sudden accident ; '|^'^' a l of^' 
9f* rkyen de-la bricn-nas owing to that 
circumstance ; $V q S'i^' a r*'?*r$ me-pahi 
rkyen-la bltas-te or s|^'5 brten-te consider- 
ing the case of not being, not having ; 
thus fVSr^rV** 1 *^! stands also for a 
cause of disease and of death ; ^"I'J^ 
bgol-rkyen any circumstance or event 
adverse to the success of an action, any 
obstacle, anything opposed or hostile to 
the existence of another thing : 'S'r'jl 
mthun-rkycn a happy, favourable circum- 
stance ; furtherance ; assistance ; supply ;

predominating colour as in chintz ; party- 
coloured, as in the case of cattle and 
wild animals, such as a tiger or leopard, 
and in birds. In WH dkar-khra, the 
white (dkar) is supposed to predominate. 
In *\*^'H dmar-khra, red predominates. In 
the common saying ? q H'H'^'!' B i' a '\ **'^'|9' 
SJ-^c.-araj^ stag-gi khra-bo phyi-la yod, mi-yi 
khra-bo nan-la yod, the tiger is party- 
coloured externally, but man is so inter- 
nally the meaning, of course, is that 
it is difficult to know a man even by 
the traits of his mind. 2. Ace. to 
Ja. a distinction is to be drawn 
between khra-wo and khra-wa, the first 
signifying only two-coloured or piebald, 
and the second party or many-coloured. 
We have not found this distinction our- 
selves. The significations of the various 
compounds of khra have all a reference 
to the peculiar effect produced on the eye 
by the blending of two or more colours 
together, especially when seen from a 
distance ; so H'3*4'*> khra cem-tne is said of a 
rainbow, tinted meteor, etc. ; H'W*) khra 
lam-me or H'^*'*> khra l/iam-me of a similar 
phenomenon ; |3'wl khra chem-chem of 
a flight of birds : H'**r^|g-S*-*> khra cham- 
se khra ehem-me or g'2*<-$ khra chem-se in C. 
= l*r|g-fjfft chem khra $prin-ne in Ld. 
Such compounds have also assumed the 
character of an adverb, as in 0'*)'^ khra- 
me-re, together ; altogether.

^ I : ga is the third letter of the 
Tibetan alphabet corresponding with 
Sanskrit K. It is pronounced as soft k 
when alone or when placed without a prefix 
at the beginning of a word or syllable. 
When used as a final letter it sounds 
as or is often barely pronounced. If a 
prefix precede "I or if it carry a surmount- 
ing letter, it sounds as a hard g. When 
used to represent a numerical figure it 
signifies the third, i.e., the ordinal III, 
and as such is generally used in marking 
volumes of books, &c. *| ga is sometimes 
used as an affixed particle of a word to

whatever faults there was in it have been

suffering, and misery ; moreover, all virtue

"\ sag, his animated being becomes what is 
called Pudgal. In the strict sense of the

account of his martial valour was deified 
and raised to the position of the God of 
War. There are various accounts of him. 
The people of Kham in Tibet own him 
for their national war-god, while the 
Mongolians say that *T* Ge-sar was a 
king of Mongolia. According to some 
authors, he lived in the 7th century A.D. 
According to the collection of heroic songs 
called the fiV Rgyal-druA, King Ge-sar

mgon-po according to some 
grammarians the word w'fa myon is an 
abbreviation of the words f'^ mgo-hdrcn 
(*\ hdre being eliminated), signifying Tra 
protector, patron, principal, master, lord, 
tutelary god; so the word is applicable 
to Buddha, saints, and also ordinarily to 
any protectors and benefactors in general. 
When %5 occurs as a proper name it 
denotes either Buddha or Avalokites'vara 
or Mahadeva. Among the f^'Q mgon-po 
are also classed Ganes'a, the Dikpala or 
guardians of the world and of Buddhism, 
besides many other spirits who are repre- 
sented as possessing four, six, and some- 
times eight arms. This class of gods is also 
numerous in both the Tantrik and Bon 
pantheon. fl|WV''l'W**'*|fi mgon-po
