Chapter Summary

Bogoslovskij, in a paper published in 1958 has clearly shown that the various interpretations of Bacot and Thomas are tentative and inaccurate. Bogoslovskij's interpretation has several weak points and the solution of the problem has an important bearing on the Old Tibetan taxation system and on the history of the Old Tibetan social and economic system. The felt-roll is a well-known object and was maiiy times described by scholars in connection with felt-making. The term phyi E45;-ril is here an old Tibetan medical expression. In the Old Tibetan taxation system it has been the object of taxation, a unit similar to the sheaf of corn. The taxation of the felt-rolls occurs eight times in the Royal Annals. It is of special interest that the time interval of the phy E45;-ril taxation seems to be regular.
