Gangdschong  - The "Land of Snow"

has in the history of peoples lives through very turbulent times and by its almost total seclusion during the last centuries, the history of Tibetan breeds are very difficult to understand. The extremely high-lying residential areas favored the isolation of the country, especially from Europe. This and the spread of Buddhism in the wake of international historical movements by the Mongolian and Chinese wars of conquest and the cultural influences of the trade links to China and Mongolia in the north and east, Persia, India and Asia Minor to the south and west influenced the development of today's Tibetan breeds much.

The Development of Tibetan breeds can not be described without consideration of the life of this Mongoloid hill people.

The settlement of the Tibetan highlands by nomadic tribes was from the northeast. Herding dogs among their yaks, sheep and goat herds. The task of these herding dogs was due to the turbulent life of not only the preserve of the herds, but also from guarding the tents with the household, women and children. After the spread of Buddhism in the 7th Century hunting played virtually no role.

The 2500 years ago in Tibet immigrant Chiang Mongolian tribes and the Mon-Khmer group migrated seasonally between pastures and residential areas and the tribal areas have been delimited by mountain peaks. The name is still used in Tibet's - "Böyül" - explained by the different warning and detection call by which the tribes and hordes then agreed Böyül is the land of the calls..

The roots of the few still existing Bon religion are in the unimaginable forces of nature and the unpredictability of the weather envelopes that can be in one day the beauty and hardships caused all four seasons. In the vast mountains of all possible forms of superstition and fear of angst arose before the mighty gods of nature. All this despite the hordes and tribes were not only submissive and timid nomadic groups but there were also feared and predatory tribes who invaded from the highlands to India and China to plunder and rob.

Srongtsen Gampo, the first Tibetan king, wanted to conquer the world not only by war but by diplomacy and sent scholars to India Studies sum. This developed after returning the Tibetan alphabet and brought the idea of ​​Buddhism. In Chriniken is reported that Srongtsen Gampo, although he already had three Tibetan women in the Nepalese princess Bhrikuti 639 and 641, the Chinese princess Wencheng married so as to bring Buddhism to the country. There was soon a lively contest between the two Buddhist women to the rapid introduction of the Buddhist teachings.

The first government palace on the "red mountain" in Lhasa, where 1000 years later, the Potala, the "saving harbor" under the 5th Dalai Lama was built, was 645 by Srongtsen Gampo.

At the same time let the Jokhang and Queen Queen Wencheng Bhrikuti build the Ramoche temple. Both temples in Lhasa are still very famous. By mixing the old Bon religion and Buddhism originated the present form of Tibetan Buddhist lamas of the Tibetan people and laymen shared faith. The lamas (teachers, Upper) tielten is again in 5 levels with the lowest, the little-respected lamas were working and the upper aristocratic estates were those of the state power.

After Tibet's voluntary submission under the Mongol rule succeeded the Tibetan priests, the Mongol ruler to convert to Lamaism. The Lamas of the "Red Hats" came voluntarily or under duress at the Mongolenhof to found monasteries and teach the new religion. The resulting marriage of convenience the two nations took centuries benefits. The Mongols themselves as secular patrons of Tibet and were under the spiritual protection of the Tibetan Grand Lamas.

The first reports of Tibetan dogs came by Marco Polo lived the 17 years at the court Chubilai Khan and his travel stories in the Tibet's impressive dogs and the dogs at the court said in Beijing.

In 1913 it came to Tibet's de facto independence and 1951 was between the PRC and the 14th Dalai Lama concluded an agreement with the Tibet practically a part of Chinese territory was. Existed in the time of the Cultural Revolution in Lhasa heavy destruction and thus was also destroyed most of the dogs.
