TO
HIS MOST GRACIOUS MAJESTY

WILLIAM I.,

KING OF WURTTEMBERG.

Sire,

Most respectfully I approach to present to Your Majesty ray
researches on the Buddhist religion in Tibet; and I do so with
a feeling of the deepest gratitude for Your Majesty's gracious per-
mission. For even if I recall to my mind the far distant origin
of the Buddhist faith, the various changes it has undergone, and
its still existing influence as the dominant religion of hundreds of
millions, the share such considerations might have had in my
venturing to address Your Majesty, must disappear before the
gracious, encouraging condescendence with which Your Majesty
was pleased to receive a personal explanation of the materials
which are now published in this work.

I am, with profound respect,

Your Majesty's

Most humble and obedient servant.
MUNICH, May 1863.

THE AUTHOR.
