China helps King Gesar storytellers to continue "Eastern Homer"

This is a wonderful story about China’s invested effort in keeping a treasured element of their culture and history alive by finding and funding oral storytellers to tell “The Epic of King Gesar.” Somehow I don’t think this would happen in the U. S. (one-man recitations of “The Odyssey” might not draw large crowds).
