Book Overview

Most Bhutanese know Zhabdrung as a religious leader and the founder of the Bhutanese nation. Author's compelling and holistic portrayal of this highly accomplished religious master and shrewd political leader offers a rarely explored aspect of the most important historical figure in Bhutan. The book's emphasis is on the battles over succession and the political machinations that followed his death and ultimately set the course for the next two centuries of Bhutanese history. Author carefully traces how these political complexities lead to the legitimization of succession through reincarnation
