FEW IN BETWEEN LINES FROM THE FOREWORD: "THE BOOK IS INTENDED NOT FOR THOSE WHO ALREADY KNOW TIBETAN BUT FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT". THAT THE WORK IS EXCELLENTLY ADAPTED FOR THE NEEDS OF THOSE WHO WISH TO ACQUIRE A KNOWLEDGE OF THE LIVING LANGUAGE OF TIBET THROUGH COLLOQUIAL PRACTICE, IS MADE ABUNDANTLY CLEAR FROM THE HELPFUL ARRANGEMENT OF THE CONTENTS OF THE WORD BOOK AND ITS APPENDICES.

FEW, EARLY LINES FROM THE GENERAL PREFACE: HIS HOLINESS THE FOURTEENTH DALAI LAMA, JETSUN JAMPEL NGAWANG LOBSANG YISHE TENDZIN GYATSHO, WAS BORN ON THE SIXTH JUNE 1935 NEAR KUMBUM IN THE DISTRICT TO THE SOUTH-EAST OF LAKE KOKONOR WHICH THE TIBETANS CALL AMDO. A VISIT TO LHASA IN 1949 IN CONNEXION WITH HIS INSTALLATION GAVE OPPORTUNITY FOR MUCH OF THE WORK WHICH HAS BEEN DONE ON THESE BOOKS. BASED ON AN EXAMINATION OF SYLLABLES, THE BOOKS SHOW HOW IT IS THAT DALAI MEANS OCEAN, LAMA MEANS ONE WHO IS ABOVE ALL, THAT KUMBUM MEANS THE HUNDRED THOUSAND IMAGES, THAT LHASA MEANS THE PLACE OF GOD, THAT THE WORD SERTHRINGASO WHICH WE RENDER AS INSTALLATION MEANS THE REQUEST TO TAKE POSSESSION OF THE GOLDEN THRONE, AND THE THE NAMES OF THE DALAI LAMA MEAN THE HOLY ONE, THE TENDER GLORY, MIGHTY IN SPEECH, OF EXCELLENT INTELLECT OF ABSOLUTE WISDOM, HOLDING THE DOCTRINE THE OCEAN. TO LEARN TO SPEAK TIBETAN AS IT IS SPOKEN TODAY IN LHASA.
