GANJUUR

Readers at the Central Public library havethe opportunity of acquainting themselves with “Ganjur”, extremely rare Tibetan book of the 11th  century. It sets forth the fundamentals of ancient Indian sciences, philosophy, medicine, art, logic, grammar and as¬tronomy, but that is not its only value. It proves that books were printed in Mongolia a thousand years ago. “Ganjur” was printed by the xilographic method in Sanskrit, Ti¬betan and Mongolian. The Mongolian translations of “Ganjur” (109 volumes) and “Danjur” (226 volumes) contain the foundations of the ancient Indian five sci¬ences: philosophy, medicine, art, acoustics and exact sciences.
