This is a comprehensive and extremely informed study of the changing social context and religious lives of lha pa, 'deity or god men,' in Qinghai Province, China.

This book is an important contribution to the documentation and understanding of Asian ritual and society. Dr. Mark Turin, Director, Digital Himalaya Project, University of Cambridge, UK
