Bogdanov K. Ritual Funeral Text Tang 665 from the Tangut Collection of IOM, RAS // Written Monuments of the Orient, 2. Moscow: Vostochnaya literatura, 2015. P. 48-60.


This paper represents a brief study and a translation of a ritual funeral text dated to the 11th–13th сc. Despite its brevity, the manuscript is a consistent and complete fragment describing the ritual and proving the doubtless similarity between the Tangut and Tibetan religious traditions. The very age of the text attests to the fact that this tradition has survived down to the present day in unaltered form.
