9781602061378: The Buddhism of Tibet or Lamaism

Excerpt from The Buddhism of Tibet, or Lamaism: With Its Mystic Cults, Symbolism and Mythology, and in Its Relation to Indian Buddhism

O apology is needed for the production at the pre sent time of a work on the Buddhism of Tibet, or Lamaism as it has been called, after its priests. Notwithstanding the increased attention which in recent years has been directed to Buddhism by the speculations of Schopenhauer and Hartmann, and the widely felt desire for fuller information as to the conditions and sources of Eastern religion, there exists no European book giving much insight into the jealously guarded religion of Tibet, where Buddhism wreathed in romance has now its chief stronghold.

From the Back Cover:

In this volume, originally published in 1894, 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.

About the Author:

British archaeologist and Orientalist LAURENCE AUSTINE WADDELL (1854-1938) also wrote Among the Himalayas (1899) and Lhasa and Its Mysteries (1905).
