The Tibetan Manuscripts have reached India in various ways. Csoma=de-Koros, Rai Bahadur Sarat Chandra Das and others went to Tibet and brought a huge number of Tibetan Manuscripts with them. These are deposited in different repositories of India like The Asiatic Society, Calcutta University and some other places. The Tibetan Manuscript is commonly known as Kan-gyur, the canon and Tan=gyur, the commentaries. The present catalogue has a number of miscellaneous texts dealing with different interesting topics. In this collection a large number of texts deal with religion, prayer and lifestories of the eminent Tibetan scholars. This indigenous catalogue focuses on commentaries, rituals, Sahdanas etc. It would be a great help for further academic endeavours and also for general readers interested in the field of the study
