Eurasian Mythology in the Tibetan Epic of Ge-sar
Wishpot add this item to your
Ge-sar is the most extraordinary Tibetan legendary figure and remains, despite various unsuccessful attempts to tie him down into a context of historical reality, a great mythological character.
The figure of Ge-sar has served as a repository of traditions that, through the corridor of the Eurasian steppe belt, reach back into the world of Germanic and Greek legends and into Megalithic religious beliefs.
The hero Ge-sar, sent down from heaven and returned thereto, has indicated in the course of his eventful journey on earth that on the occasion of his return the hope for a reign of justice and peace and the striving for salvation and liberation will be fulfilled. Thus Ge-sar is both hero and saviour at once.
In this text, Professor Hummel manages to bring to life one of the most fascinating legends of world literature.
