The Abbot of Tengboche Monastery describes the Buddhist culture, oral history, and traditions of the Sherpa people from the Khumbu Valley below Mount Everest. The is the revised 5th edition.
“Visitors from many countries come here to see and to climb Chomolungma, Mt. Everest. Often you want to know about the culture of our Sherpa people. Therefore, we have made this little book of cultural information to help you understand our way of life. We originally made this book through the Sherpa Cultural Centre project at Tengboche monastery in Solu-Khumbu district of East Nepal. I wanted to make a book about the Sherpa’s heritage so people will remember their culture and stories.”
