Tibetan Buddhism is the body of religious Buddhist characteristic of Tibet, northern Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Mongolia, Russia and northeastern China. It is an integrated teaching, naturally implementing methods for all human-condition levels: Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana (Tibetan Tantra). In the past, Tibetan Buddhism was called Lamaism.

Tibetan Buddhism needs a person to be an empowered before he begins practicing. Meditation is significant in the Tibetan Buddhism, and rituals such as food, water and flower offering; religious pilgrimage and chanting prayers are good way of gaining blessings. There were lots of monasteries in Tibet, but most of the major ones were reestablished after some destruction.

Certain Buddhist scriptures arrived in southern Tibet from India as early as 173. The earliest well-documented influence of Buddhism in Tibet dates from the reign of King Songtsen Gampo (617-650) who married the Chinese Buddhist Princess Wencheng (文成, Wénchéng, 625-680) of the Tang Dynasty. Tibetan Buddhism had a strong influence on Central Asia, especially in Mongolia and Manchuria. It was adopted as an official state religion by the Mongol Yuan Dynasty and the Qing Dynasty. Tibetan Buddhism has gained tens of thousands of practitioners in the west and throughout the world.
