^Yves Bonnefoy Asian Mythologies - 1993 Page 302 "These remarks indicate in barest outline the perspective in which the study of Tibetan mythology is approached here. We will not describe Tibetan religion in its entirety, whether in the Buddhist or the pre-Buddhist periods, but only certain mythological elements that appear in it, which one can assume to be indigenous, that is, not introduced by Buddhism."
^China Tibetology - China Tibetology Research Center - 2004 - Issues 2-3 - Page 86 "The goddess motif of Tibetan mythology is very unique and reflects the tradition and worship of the goddess age. It also shows that the Tibetan culture is integrated with the Chinese matrimonial culture."
