In this volume Waddell introduces to his readers the peculiar religion of Tibetan Buddhism, which he finds so unlike other schools of Buddhism that he gives it its own name: Lamaism. Waddell, to the best of his ability, observes and records Tibetan Buddhist practices, comparing them to what the Western world considered "true" Buddhism.
Written during a time when Christian theologians were studying other religions for the sake of discounting them as sorcery, The Buddhism of Tibet is predictably full of inaccuracies that modern scholars would quickly identify. For this reason alone, Waddell's book will interest students of religion and history-for its embodiment of a historical attitude that was widely accepted by the reading public.
Despite these inaccuracies and misinterpretations, Waddell introduces his readers to a world that is wholly unfamiliar, having developed in the near isolation of the mountains of Tibet.
