These essays cover various sectors of society [political administration, economy, military, etc.], as well as the broader Tibetan geographic area, including Khams and Amdo. More research is needed, but it seems possible that these texts were originally written by Pandatsang Rapga (Spom mda' tshang Rab dga') or a close associate, and transcribed here. The author of the last essay remarks that s/he is from "Khams lho brgyud." The notebook also contains a few brief and unidentified writings, including one verse in romanized Tibetan.
