This index presents a list of ancient author names that occur in this book Lamas, Shamans and Ancestors. The book is a study of ritual within a community variously referred to as Bhutia, Lhopo or Denjongpa in the agricultural village of Tingchim in North Sikkim. Buddhism, which firmly established itself in Sikkim in the seventeenth century, initially absorbed the cult of ancestral gods and local deities which eventually became central to the performance of rituals currently held by both village lamas and shamans.
