In Tibet, Buddhism provided the basis of a unique civilization. It offered a vision of a meaningful life, an ethical system that enjoined decency and humanity, a profound philosophical tradition, and a comprehensive spiritual path. The expressions of Buddhism in Tibet could be found everywhere-in the devotion of virtually all Tibetans for their religion; in the multitude of small and large monasteries scattered throughout the country; in the shrines located in every home, monastery, and retreat cell; in the rituals that shaped and guided everyone’s life; in the ever- present color and vividness of Tibetan painting, sculpture, music, dance, and theater; and even in the government organization and its operation.
