This book presents a sociological study of theyoung Lamas, with special reference to Leh. Tracing the genesis of Buddhism in India and its spread to Ladakh and Leh, it analyzes the factors that led to the emergence of Lamaism. It examines the position, aspirations, upbringing and psycho-physical strains of the youngLamas, along with the organization and functioning of the monasteries. It also discusses in detail the nature of relationship between the monastery and the laity.
