Bibliographical note

I would like to give special thanks to Richard Serrano, Simon Wickham-Smith, and Mary Shaw, who all kindly agreed to read my article through and make the necessary corrections. My gratitude also goes to Christopher Bush who brought Thibet to my attention back in 2013. In addition, I have benefited from the insightful clarifications made by Gen Ganden Lobsang, Sonam Phuntso, and Kawa Norbu on the Padma bka’ thang during my research trip to North India in spring 2016. I am deeply indebted to them all.
