Tibetan-Russian-English Dictionary: With Sanskrit Parallels (In 2 Volumes)

Y N Roerich (Author)

This dictionary by Y.N. Roerich was edited posthumously by Parfionovich and Dylykova, as a valuable guide to Classical Tibetan. It is a vade mecum to translate Tibetan historical and philosophical texts. It has new words which are not found in the dictionaries of Jaschke and S.C. Das. Roerich could not find words and expressions while translating the Blue Annals into English. He had to access traditional scholars like Gendun Chomphel from Tibet and Sanggye from Buryatia who interpreted the Annals in terms of language and its terse style that presupposes traditional learning. This dictionary is to facilitate the understanding of classical vocabulary. The entries are precise and lead the reader to the central concept of the word. It is an outcome of the life-long experience of Y.N. Roerich, supplemented by the two editors who had access to the Buryat heritage of Tibetan. This compact edition in two bindings will be a ready reference for all Tibetanists. The original edition was a rare even when published in the 1980s.

Y.N. Roerich was an outstanding scholar of Tibetan and Mongolian. He studied in Paris with Pelliot and made astounding discoveries like: Bokhara is the distorted form of Vihara and a vihara was actually discovered by Russian archaeologists near Numijkath a town that merged into Bokhara. He wrote on Tibetan Painting in 1925. Went on an expedition to Tibet, Mongolia and Central Asia during the years 1924-28. Wrote a grammar of Modern Tibetan and conducted fieldwork on the dialect of Amdo. His studies on the customs, folk songs, Gesar epic, Rama story, the biosketch of Chag lotsava who witnessed the destruction of Nalanda, and his magnum opus The Blue Annals are foundations of Tibetology. This dictionary crowns his multi-splendoured Tibetan studies.
