      "Asian Religions in America: A Documentary History" is an important contribution to the subfield of Asian Religions in America by two leading scholars. As the title suggests, the book is a superbly edited collection of primary sources that range from early missionary accounts in Burma through the civil war right up to author Amy Tan and the 4/5(1). The religious life of Tibet embraces a wide range of ritual practices whose origins are clearly indigenous. Among them are important rituals of the Tibetan state, such as those concerned with the state oracles and protective deities, that have developed over the course of centuries as solemn rites of national significance.
