all Tibetans follow Tibetan Buddhism, known as
Lamaism, with the exception of approximately 2,000
followers of Islam and 600 of Catholicism. Tibetan
Buddhism was greatly influenced by Indian Buddhism
in its early time, but after years of evolution,
Tibetan Buddhism has developed its own distinctive
qualities and practices. A well-known example
is the belief that there is a Living Buddha, who
is the reincarnation of the first, a belief alien
to Chinese Buddhism.
