Tibetans were generally referred to as Bhotas or Bhauttas in Sanskrit since post-Buddhist period. There is no reference of Bhotas or Bhauttas in Ramayana and Mahabharata. Ancient Tibet was called as Bod or Bod-yul.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
