Dead Tibetans

I began to perceive that there could be a lot of these guys, as their recycling and intermingling lineages create at least in theory an endless supply. So to avoid filling up the Tibetan page with not-really-availables, i am experimenting with this. They will get their mention and a link but that's about all. This page should be of interest only to people really attracted by the arcane history of this group or those interested in particular lineages.
By way of general description, they are a) too recently departed to be reckoned among the Eternals, or b) earlier incarnations of guys in their 8th or 20th go-round, except the more prominent ones that belong in the Eternals or the main Tibetan listings. 
Gender (almost always M) and dates are included as well as minimal descriptive information. All are of Tibetan origin. A yellow asterisk (*) indicates suggested or located by a visitor, thank you. ">" indicates lineage.
