Thank you Franz Rogar for discovering the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th branches of The Gesar Translation. With the changes coming on the Way Back Web and Internet Archive I was concerned that the pages of Sarangerel Odigon’s Translation of Epic of King Gesar might be lost in time.
Here are the links:
Sherem Minaata Khan The Sixth Branch
The Battle with Abarga Sesen Mangadhai The Seventh Branch
The Battle with Loir Hara Lobsogoldoi The Eighth Branch
The Sharaigol War The Ninth Branch

To whom it may concern,
My name is Jonathan Ratcliffe. I am presently working on the history of the Buryat Geser. May I ask what source Sarangerel used for her translation? I’m familiar with a number of the Unga variants, which this seems to be. Did she take down someone’s recitation? Hain daa!
Hi Jonathan ~ I did not know how Sarangerel translated this, as I did not know Sarangerel personally. Sarangerel has a sister sister Chonbaatar who might be able to help you with this kind of information. I will email you the last address I have for Shaman Chonbaatar. ~ Kit
