The practice at the Silver Palace was Bon Religion, look at the Frescos on the walls. The Bon claim a legacy of 20,000 years time much longer than Buddhism, read their history. I have wondered if they were the "Pre-Buddhist Buddhists H.P.B. indicated. Also both Baumann and the Russians rush to claim it is the fabled Shamba lha I am not convinced of it yet. It doesn't align to the historical description that somewhat resembles Plato's Atlantis with it's canal Islands, rings and circles. There are online historical records that delineate the size., regions, provinces, rulers, etc; of Shamba Lha. Along with the identifies of the King and other Noble Rulers along with the Naga's whom resourced Naga-rjuna with his Sutra's from Shamba Lha. Although the Silver Palace is an important discovery it isn't Shamba Lha to me. Just my personal view and perspective.

One of the byname of the Buddha is Sakyamuni.
Gottfried de Purucker writes in his Fumdamentals (a commentary to The Secret
Doctrine), p. 236:
"Take the case of the Lord Buddha. Please notice that we here speak of the
Lord Buddha, although we speak of the great man as Siddhartha, his personal
name, and of the sage Gautama, or Gautama-Sakyamuni. Gautama was his family
name; Sakya, his clan name; Sakyamuni, the Sakya sage, was the title given
to him in later life and after."
Now, sakya and muni are also Old High German terms and mean saxony monk,
monk from Saxony. Lord Buddha, the Saxon, the Saxony sage, is his clan
But this was only a little digression to Lindtner. Hope, his book is soon
translated into English. Theosophists should support it as it is the most
heavy scientific proof that HPB is right and that such a strange thing as a
wisdom tradition exists I have been aware so far.
