This volume forms a sequel to the author's Tibet: Past and Present and The

people of Tibet. Like them, it is in part an historical account, in part a

description of conditions in the earlier part of the twentieth century. Sir

Charles Bell traces the history of the introduction to Buddhism, of the

resistance and general decay of the older magic-worship of Ponism, and of

the developments which have taken place within Tibetan Buddhism itself. The

latter part of the book deals more particularly with the religious

organization, with life in the great monasteries and with the religious

customs and beliefs of the people. The illustrations are from the author's

own photographs taken in Tibet, Sikkim and Bhutan.
