Chapter Summary

This bibliography section of this book Lamas, Shamans and Ancestors contains a list of reference sources and articles. The book is intended as a contribution to the anthropology of Himalayan Buddhist communities and to the discussion concerning the relation between Buddhism and shamanism. Shamanic rituals held by various specialists among Tibetan Buddhist communities such as the Sherpas and the Ladakhis usually have either disappeared under the influence of forms of Buddhism that did not support such worldly practices or have been absorbed into the hierarchy of the Buddhist monasteries.

Keywords: shamanism; Tibetan Buddhist communities
