This book is a brief account of the activities of an exiled Indian king, known as King Sindha [i.e. Chakhar Gyalpo], a patron of Padmasambhava, who is said to have been the founder of a short-lived kingdom in Bumthang. While the content and nature of this famous story suggest that it is purely legendary, they also give the impression of being rooted in historical fact, thus shedding light on the history of early Bumthang, and the visit of Padmasambhava, and consequent introduction of Tantric Buddhism which took root and spread from their to other areas.
