Ippolito Desideri and His Muslim Guides in the Buddhist Kingdom of Ladakh. Bray, J.
abstract   bibtex   
In 1715 Ippolito Desideri spent nearly two months in the Himalayan Buddhist kingdom of Ladakh, together with his Portuguese fellow Jesuit and superior, Manoel Freyre. They were well received by King Nyima Namgyal, the Buddhist ruler of Ladakh, and Desideri would have liked to establish a permanent Roman Catholic mission there. However, he was overruled by Freyre who decided to press on to Lhasa. Nevertheless, Desideri’s short stay in Ladakh was an important episode because it was there that he had his first encounter with Tibetan Buddhism.
