With the increasing development of Tibet tourism, more and more people choose this exotic land - a once mysterious "Shangri-La" existing in isolation for nearly 14 centuries - as their dream destination. People who've visited the country or have some knowledge of it know that it is a religious society where Buddhism had been integrated with the life of many Tibetans, affecting local behavior including not just praying but other life activities such as cooking and building houses.
Buddhism originated, of course, in India, but evolved differently after spreading to Tibet. So in order to introduce interested readers to a central part of Tibetan culture, my company Great Tibet Tour and I would like to provide a quick introduction to Tibetan Buddhism.
