Lamaism

Lamaism. A now antiquated term used by early W. commentators (as L. A. Waddell, The Buddhism of Tibet, or Lamaism, 1895) to describe Tibetan Buddhism. Although the term is not accurate (because not all Tibetan monks are lamas), ‘Lamaism’ does at least convey the great emphasis placed on the role of the spiritual teacher by this religion.
