is a heroic epic collectively created by China's Tibetans. Originating
in the folk oral traditions, Gesar passed down through Tibetan generations
in a combination of song and narration for over 1,000 years. So
far, Gesar has been collected as a work composed of more than 120
volumes, with more than 1 million verses, altogether over 20 million
words, 25 times the length of the Iliad. Gesar, is the greatest
work of Tibetan literature, Gesar is easily the lengthiest epic
in the world, and also became popular in ballads among the Mongols
King Gesar was born a son of supreme god Indira. In the youth,
he was mischievous to the point of wickedness, unruly, but divine
by nature and possessing supernature. His great antagonist was his
paternal uncle, cowardly, vain and pretentious, who hoped to rule
the country. The hero was banished with his mother, but his exile
enabled him to build up hidden strength. He came out victorious
in a horse race, whose winner was to become the country's king.
Then he started to conquer the kingdom of demons, the Jiang kingdom
and the Hor (northern people, Mongolian) kingdom. The war between
`Ling' and Hor kingdoms was one of the central pieces in the story.
The war between `Ling' and Hor started with a beautiful girl, Qomu,
the queen of king Gesar. The Hor king, `white tent king', heard
about her beauty, and sent a message to `Ling' king for her. Upon
the refusal, Hor king sent troops to attack `Ling' kingdom. After
several battles, another girl was sent to Hor king in the place
of Qomu. The trickery was discovered, and battle renewed. The capital
of `Ling' was captured by Hor troop with queen Qomu. King Gesar
summarized all his troops and with the help of an important Hor
general, captured the capital of Hor, killed the `white tent king'
and rescued Qomu.
In Tibetan-inhabited areas Gesar has been known as the king of the
ancient Tibetan kingdom of Ling. The great hero and his brave army
are kept alive in the richly imaginative retelling of the epic.
From early times the epic was passed on orally (See Gesar Bards
and Artists). Today a small number of woodblock preserving sections
of the epic can be found in Lhasa, Xigaze and Dege County in Sichuan
Province and some handwritten copies in the homes of families high
and low. The Potala Palace still has a statue of Gesar, drawing
pilgrims every day. Gesar was the king of Ling in the 11th century,
and more of his deeds were recorded in the Kangba region than anywhere
else. Handwritten and printed versions of Gesar from Dege are considered
the most authoritative works, and in Dege, people still argue that
the village of Ngaxu in northern Dege County was the birthplace

Maitreya, Bodhisattva (Tibetan: cham pa. English: the One of
Love), currently residing in the Tushita heaven, the next Buddha
to appear in the world.
Beautiful and peaceful, Maitreya is yellow in colour (gold
painted) with one face and two hands performing the Dharma
Teaching mudra (gesture) at the heart while holding the stems of
two utpala flowers blossoming at both ears supporting on the
right a water flask and on the left a Dharma Wheel. Adorned with
gold and jewel ornaments, a crown, earrings, necklaces,
bracelets and the like, he wears various flowing silk scarves
and lower robes; he sits upright atop a red lotus seat and white
snow lion supported throne with the legs extended in front
resting on a lotus stand.
The venerable Maitreya was invested as the king of the gods in
the Tushita heaven by the Victorious One himself and is the
archetypal model for the Mahayana tradition of the paramita
approach. In the future, following the period of the Sage's
teachings, he will turn the wheel of the dharma in this world
and demonstrate the deeds of a buddha, opening the eyes of those
to be guided to liberation and so forth. He has mastery over
enlightened activity, such as ensuring that those who have faith
in him will be the foremost of his retinue.
