The volume focuses on textual analysis concerning religious and secular activities, lineages, teaching transmissions, temple and monastery foundations notably in Gu ge but also in La dwags, Pi ti, Zangs dkar, Nub ra and Ru thog (with the exception of Pu hrang, due to the latter region's peculiar conditions).
