Chapter Summary

This chapter covers the period of time beginning in the middle of the 14th century and ending in the early 17th century. On a religious level, it recounts the origins and maturation of a number of religious orders in Tibet , notably including the Kagyü and the Geluk Schools of Tibetan Buddhism, headed by the Karmapa and the Dalai Lama, respectively. Shakabpa describes the relationship between prominent lamas, particularly the Karmapas, and the Ming emperors, and he maintains that these connections were of a purely religious nature. It was during this time that the religious landscape took on the form that is recognizable today. On the political front, Shakabpa endeavors to show that throughout the period of the Ming Dynasty, Tibet was a distinct nation that was thoroughly in control of its own political affairs.
