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”.
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.
