The people of Tibet and their religion have been insepara-ble. Originally the Bon religion dominated Tibet. In the seventh century the Mahayana form of Buddhism was brought into Tibet by the two wives of the Tibetan King Srong-tsan Llampo, along with the scared images and Sanskrit manuscripts, literature of the Tibetans. One Guru Padmasambhava founded the “Lamaism” in Tibet, Tibet-ans Lamaism is a branch of Mahayana form of Buddhism and the study of Lamaism, its growth and spread is both fascinating and baffling. The monasteries and temples conduct daily services during which the lamas officiate at the higher services held on certain days to commemorate special events in the life of Buddha and there are also ser-vices for Padmasambhava, the founder of Lamaism. The objects used during the different ceremonies and rituals are of great interest and most of them are unknown to the outer world other than the Tibetans. Hence this study, in which an attempt has been made to bring to light these rare specimens used by the lamas is their day to day rituals and on special occasions as well.Dr. V.
