About Tibet

Tibet’s history has always been closely linked with the gods who live so close, and in Tibet’s vast and hostile landscape it is easy to conceive the many demons from whom shaman’s offered protection. Some of these demons were real, in the form of bandits and invading Mongol hordes, others reflect the deep spiritual focus of the Tibetan people. With the coming of Buddhism the demons were tamed, converted and turned into protectors- an integral part of the unique way in which Buddhism has developed in Tibet.

In Tibet, people follow Buddhism and his disciplines. People liked pilgrimage as an integral part of life. Monasteries and temples are the most attractive point of town and village.
