THE SHERPAS OF NEPAL - Buddhist Highlanders, Furer-Haimendorf, Christoph von
20 Furer-Haimendorf, Christoph von THE SHERPAS OF NEPAL - Buddhist Highlanders
New Delhi Oxford Book Company 1964 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
xx, 298 pages; Clean and tight in original red cloth binding in very good pictorial dustjacket with edgewear. This was the first anthropological study of the Sherpas, a tribe of hillmen figuring in the reports on all the great Himalayan mountaineering ventures. They live in the valleys at the foot of the Mount Everest massif, and Professor Haimendorf shows that, despite a harsh climate and the extreme altitude of their habitat, the Sherpas have developed a pattern of life rich in social, aesthetic and spiritual achievements. To readers familiar with their prowess as intrepid mountaineers and hardy expedition porters, their highly organized social order, their great civic sense and elaboration of ceremonial, their practice of polyandry and above all the devotion of many men and women to monastic ideals and a sophisticated religious life will come as a surprise. Buddhist belief and practice pervade many of the community's activities and the average Sherpa's aspirations present a perfect balance between this-worldly and other-worldly aims. Haimendorf spect more than two years in the Buddhist highlands of Nepal and his descriptions of the social aspects of Buddhist ritual and monastic institutions form an important addition to our knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism as a living religion.
