      Approximately million Khampa Tibetans speak the Eastern Khampa language.

In which case we should translate the term as “central and eastern Tibet”. Eastern Tibet (Khams), codifed by the nonsectarian Ris med m ovement, but devote most attention to the examination of its revival in the transformed reality of contemporary Khams under the Chinese.

      Foreword The iconography of the deities worshiped by the Tibetans as protectors and guardians of Buddhism belongs to the least known field of Tibetan Studies. The exceedingly numerous class of protective divinities comprises many figures who originally belonged to the pantheon of the old Tibetan Bon faith. A study of the Tibetan protective deities and their cult, apart from giving an insight. Kham (khams), the easternmost region of Tibet, has long been considered a cultural border area between Central Tibet (Ü and Tsang) and western China. The borders of what is considered to be Kham run north and south along a paralell with the eastern edge of Nagchu (in the Jangtang region), and span the area to Dartsedo in the east.
