Tibetan literature

Tibetan literature generally refers to literature written in the Tibetan language. Historically, Tibetan has served as a trans-regional literary language that accompanied the spread of Tibetan Buddhism to peoples from Tibet to Mongolia, Russia, and China all the way to present-day Bhutan, Nepal, India, and Pakistan. Today, the term Tibetan literature can also be applied to any work by an ethnic Tibetan person; contemporary Tibetan writers sometimes use Chinese, English, or other languages to compose their work.
