Chapter Summary

This section of the book Buddhism and Empire: The Political and Religious Culture of Early Tibet presents a list of concepts, terms, and names of individuals and places occurring in the book. The book reassesses the role of political institutions in the introduction of Buddhism under the Tibetan Empire. It shows how relationships formed in the Imperial period underlie many of the unique characteristics of traditional Tibetan Buddhism. Even though Buddhism has provided many constants of Tibetan culture, the key to understanding its role is to observe its adaptations over time. Thus, connections with more recent political and religious systems are briefly discussed in the book.

Keywords: Early Tibet; Tibetan Buddhism
