From the Publisher'One cannot but praise the way Verhagen has achieved his aim to give a comprehensive survey of the Sanskrit grammatical texts translated into Tibetan. Verhagen's compendium constitutes an excellent reliable basis for any further study of the grammatica traditions in Buddhist India and Tibet.'
de Jong, Indo-Iranian Journal.
'With the publication of this impressive and meticulously documented dissertation (Leiden, 1991), the study of Tibet's acquisition of Indic grammatical science is finally placed upon a firm philological foundation. It is an enormously important contribution both to Indology and to Tibetology.'
Roy Andrew Miller, Journal of the American Oriental Society.
'Verhagen's study of the Sanskrit grammatical literature in Tibet clearly constitutes a work of considerable importance...it is well-researched, and structured in a way to allow for quick reference...it is the type of book that one would expect to have been written years ago and must, therefore, be warmly welcome.'
Ulrich Pagel, Bulletin of the SOAS, 1995.
