More Info

"Indo returns with a harrowing and cold narrative of Hungarian explorer and Orientalist Csoma de Krs' long journey to Zanskar valley where he studied the mysteries of the Tibetan language and Buddhist wisdom in the 1820s. Journey with us through the narrow mountain passes into the secluded villages at the foot of the Himalayas under the watchful eye of King Virudhaka. Comes in a jewelcase with a 12-page booklet.

This album is dedicated to the Transylvanian born Hungarian scholar Alexander Csoma de Kőrs. In 1816 he began his great journey on foot through Central Asia in search of the origin of the Magyar people. In 1823 he arrived in Zanskar valley where he began his research as well as work on the Worlds first scientific Tibetan-English dictionary. The scientific community as well as the Buddhist community rightly hold him as the pioneer of Tibetan research. His legendary walk of life ended en route to Lhasa in 1842 in Darjeeling under the shadow of Mount Kanchenjunga." [label info]
