Buddhism Of Tibet Or Lamaism is a classic work on Tibetan Buddhism as practiced by its monks and hermits. For many years this was the most adequate source of reliable information about Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism in the western world. The author, Major L. A. Waddell, learned the Tibetan language in order to fulfill his project and he joined the British Tibet expedition in 1903. The book is richly illustrated and the author seems to be especially interested in how the pre-buddhism occult traditions of Tibet has been incorporated in the numerous Buddhist sects in modern Tibet. This documentation has influenced a number of western esoteric thinkers and authors such as Israel Regardie, Cornelius Agrippa, Pietro d’Abano, and Eliphas Levi, etc.
