Tsari [RY]

also known as dpal gyi tsa ri tra and tsa ri dgangs; one of the three most important mountains of Tibet. The other two being dgangs dkar ti se or Mount Kailash and la phyi dgangs. While Mount Kailash is certainly the most famous of the three, it is interesting to note that the fourth head of the 'brug pa bka' brgyud, the famous 'brug chen pad ma dkar po, 1527-1592, in his guide to various holy places gnas yig, regards tsa ri as the most important of them. tsa ri is supposedly the seat of, among others, the protective deity zhing skyong kun dga' gzhon nu. For more information on tsa ri, see Toni Huber; The Cult Of Pure Crystal Mountain, Oxford University Press, 1999. These three mountains are listed among the gnas chen nyi shu rtsa bzhi, the "24 sacred places of the world" and are often called the "three holy mountains of Tibet". All three mountains are associated with the body-speech- and mind aspects of Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi. The greater part of tsa ri is situated in present-day Arunchal Pradesh, a federal state of India [tsd]
