Himalayan Cultural Heritage Foundation (HCHF) has come up with a book on the Nubra valley (Nub-ra’i gNas-bShad) by Urgain Rigzin, an astrologer from Nubra. The book was made available for the readers with offering the first copy of the book to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama during the two-day teaching at Deskit, Nubra. The book gives detailed significance of the sacred mountains dedicated to Mahakala (Gonbo) and other sacred landscapes such as sacred lakes, foot prints, medicinal hot springs, caves and so on. It also highlights description of several villages and list of Lamas and Rinpoches born in the Nubra valley. The book is in Bhoti and will be translated into English soon. One of the primary aims of HCHF is to support and encourage local writers to share their indigenous knowledge that will benefit all the people interested in Himalayan cultural heritage. The book on the Nubra valley by Urgain Rigzin is the first step in this direction.
