“All compounded things are subject to decay”: The archaeology of Tibetan Buddhism

Abstract

For most westerners, Buddhism is timeless, and Tibet remote and romantic. For the historical Buddha, his last words remind us of the impermanence of all things. For the archaeologist, however, the material expression of Buddhism on the Tibetan Plateau, offers fascinating insight into the transformation and evolution of Buddhist thought as it encounters indigenous, pre-Buddhist conceptions of landscape and religion, borrowings of ritual from Central and East Asia, and the changing political fortunes of the emerging Tibetan empire. The story, one of change and continuity, has resonance in the modern world because the Tibetan past is so emotionally charged and deeply contested. In this lecture, I hope to offer some insights into that past though a discussion of my research through four vignettes: the “pagan” Buddhists of Mustang, the tombs of the Buddhist kings of Tibet, the top-down Buddhists of Dulan, and the lost Buddhist past from Tholing in far western Tibet. My perspective is unique: I am the only western archaeologist to have been granted formal permission to conduct research in the Tibet Autonomous Region.
