This dissertation examines the place of traditional songs in the Tibetan Buddhist culture of the former Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh. I look at how Buddhism and pre-Buddhist religion informed the texts and performance contexts of traditional songs, and how Ladakhi songs represent cultural self-images through associated musical, textual, and visual tropes. Many songs of the past, both from the old royal house and the rural Buddhist populations, reflect the socio-political structure of Ladakhi society. Some songs reflect a pan-Tibetan identity, connecting the former Namgyal dynasty to both the legendary King Gesar and Nyatri Tsangpo, the historical founder of the Tibetan Yarlung dynasty. Nevertheless, a distinct Ladakhi identity is consistently asserted. A number of songs contain texts that evoke a mandala or symbolic representation of the world according to Vajrayana Buddhist iconography, ritual and meditative visualization practices. These mandala descriptions depict the social order of the kingdom, descending from the heavens, to the Buddhist clergy, to the king and nobles, to the common folk. As the region has become more integrated into modern India, Ladakhi music has moved into modern media space, being variously portrayed through scholarly works, concerts, mass media, and the internet.

I don't think we could have a real conversation about those points either. There are many catholic families with these three main ethnic groups within it. Hopefully they have some say in it, but I'm speaking about other churchgoers' expectations here, and probably your wife's. Once you both die, you will not be married in the afterlife and she will get assigned to be the polygamous wife of someone else. She really likes me, and if she could change one thing about me it would be my lack of religion. I really fell that its time for me to move on. She might not realize how important it is to compromise. She will probably feel persecuted and attacked if you try.
