The holy shrine of Brag dkar rta so in south-western Tibet is linked to the great Tibetan mystic Mi la ras pa. Abandoned in the 1960s, it was gradually revived in the late 1980s. After outlining the importance of Brag dkar rta so as a Buddhist monastery in the Tibet-Nepal borderlands, the talk will focus on the current process of restoration, and it will look at this particular case as an opportunity to explore the current management of Tibetan cultural heritage.]]>
