Western Tibet and central Tibet was gradually populated by the Bodha tribe of India. Western Tibet emerged as the kingdom of Zhang Zhung after Mahabharata era and the central Tibet came to be known as Bodh or Bod. The word “Bodh” became “Bhota” in Prakrit and “Bhautta” in later Sanskrit literature. Evidently, Tibet and Bhutan names derived from the Prakrit word “Bhota”.
