In this book the author attempts to describe how Buddhism, in a late and strange form, came to Tibet and was there developed to suit the needs of an exceptional country and people and how for several centuries and down to the present day, dominates Tibet. Many people interested in Tibetan Buddhism will gain knowledge of the inner workings of its Tibetan adaptation.
