Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the trans-disciplinary research conducted by members of a group of scholars of Vienna University at different times and for different reasons, but have recently become connected formally in a common Interdisciplinary Research Unit ‘The Cultural History of the Western Himalaya’ which is supported financially by the Austrian Science Fund. Without trans-disciplinary communication the work of saving the temples of Nako would not have come about. Specialists aim at not only incorporating the still-available local expertise and other local capacities into the work process, but also at finding simple and mutual solutions for problems as they arise. In this way the population of Nako can easily realise their own intentions and hopes for the spiritual centre with the best modern methods offered them by these foreigners.
