Abstract

The Communist Party of China and our country have attached great importance to Tibet and have held many symposiums to discuss and study Tibetan issues in all aspects, especially the development and prosperity of culture. Therefore, this article turns the focus to the translation and dissemination of Tibetan indigenous culture. It sorts out and studies the fragmentary translations of Tibetan gnomic verses, and finally organizes them into a systematic translation history of Tibetan gnomic verses. Taking the translation of Sakya Gnomic Verses as an example, it sorts out the translation history from the initial stage of translating into Mongolian in the 13th Century and the 14th Century to the heyday of multilingual translation in the early 21st century so as to explore the translation, study and dissemination of Tibetan ethnic literary works, especially Tibetan gnomic verses.
