Reseña del editor:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Limbu alphabet, reintroduced from the disappeared Kirat-Sirijonga script , is a Brahmic script used to write the Limbu language of northern India and Nepal. The Limbu language is also written in Devanagari. According to traditional histories, it was first invented in the late 9th century by the king Sirijonga Hang, then fell out of use, to be reintroduced in the 18th century by Te-ongsi Sirijunga Xin Thebe (1704-1741?). This Sirijonga, who was believed to be the reincarnation of the first, was apparently martyred in 1741 (or 1743) for the sake of this script by the Sikkim Lamas, who tied him to a tree and flang poison arrows at him. The script was named ''Sirijonga'' in his honour by the Limbu scholar Iman Xin Chemjong in 1925.
