Description

King Gesar is an epic from Tibet based on Tibetan folk tales, legends, folk songs and proverbs. Representing the highest achievement of ancient Tibetan culture, it has been in circulation for centuries.



In the epic Gesar is depicted as half man and half god. When he was born he was like a three-year-old child. On just the third day after he came into the world he killed a plague of rats that caused grassland damage.



Compared with the world’s other famous heroic epics, King Gesar has two outstanding characteristics.



First, it has been passed down from one generation to the next orally and musically. Even today the epic is still widespread among the Tibetan people, especially among farmers and herdsmen.



Second, it is the longest heroic epic in the world. It is an immense work, with more than 1 million verses running to some 20 million words, which would fill 120-plus volumes if written down.



Together with the Publisher, China Intercontinental Press, Feetan hope readers, through reading this book, will get to know and love both this great epic and the Tibetan culture.
