Learning to Read the Short Chenrezik Sadhana
Are you interested in learning to read Tibetan, but don't know where to start? Have you been frustrated by the lack of availability of very easy, very basic instructional materials? Here's a book that has been specially developed to meet your needs!
Tibetan Language Pre-Primer fills a gap in currently available instructional materials. It will introduce you slowly and effectively to foundation "pre-primer" skills. Using this book , you will:
- Learn the Tibetan alphabet
- Learn how Tibetan words are made from the letters
- Learn how a Tibetan-English dictionary is organized
- And learn to read the short Chenrezik sadhana in the process!
Tibetan letters and words are structured quite differently from those in Western languages, and detailed instruction is needed before learning to read the language. This book will teach you the specific skills you need in an organized, sequential fashion. You will then be well prepared to study other books and materials which specialize in teaching reading. Multiple examples for every new concept are given, followed by related exercises (with their answers on the same page). Material is not overly grim and serious, but has a lighthearted approach that helps make learning fun.
As you learn each new step, it is immediately meshed with learning to read the short Chenrezik sadhana. All examples and vocabulary are drawn from that sadhana so that you will have constant repetition and reinforcement. By the time you have completed this book, you will know all the words in Chenrezik, thus greatly increasing your pleasure and understanding of it.

Tibetan Language Pre-Primer: Learning to Read the Short Chenrezik Sadhana, Cathy Kielsmeier, Tendrel Publications, 8.5"x10", 80 pages, $26.95
