Yes, the reason it was deleted is that it had Latin letters but had Tibetan as the language, but Tibetan uses the Tibetan script. Go ahead and re-add it with an English header. Even if it's a loan word from Tibetan or Sanskrit, if it's used in an English context it's considered an English word. Its version in Tibetan script would be considered a Tibetan word, and so forth.

That's what I thought. But I don't understand why the language wasn't just changed to English, unless the purpose was to create some kind of standing monument to something or other...oh well, in Buddhism we don't worry about "standing monuments" one way or another.

The admin that found it was probably reluctant to make changes to it because it was Tibetan and he didn't know whether the script was wrong or the language was wrong, so he deleted it. He might have used {{wrongscript}} but he maybe didn't understand the definition either. As an administrator, I can restore the page and clean it up if you want.
