Tibet—a land of mystery and pov
erty where every third male is a
member of the Lamayan priesthood,
was described in a lecture demon
stration presented to the students of
Bluffton High school by Fred Hard
enbrook, American adventurer and
explorer, in an assembly meeting at
the auditorium Wednesday morning.
Hardenbrook gained access into
the interior of Tibet and to the cap
ital, Lhassa, which has seldom been
seen by a white man. A special pass
privilege given him by one of the
Tibetian priests gave him access.
He found the people very suspicious
of foreignners who are regarded as
enemies until proven otherwise.
Customs 1000 Years Old Are Still
Practiced In Tibet, Speaker Says
One of the strange customs soon
encountered in the country was the
form of greeting in which the na
tives take off their hats, place them
over their stomachs and stick out
their tongues. To extend the hand
ts done in this country would be
regarded as an insult.
The religion is a form of Bud
dhism introduced in the seventh cen
tury by their god Mahayana who
was believed to visit the country in
the form of a thunderbolt. It con
sists of much ritualism and use is
made of prayer wheels, prayer flags,
idols, rosaries and mass reciting of
liturgies. The speaker had consid
erable ceremonial material with him
and demonstrated their use to the
Every priest, known as a Lama,
thinks of himself as being a re-in
carnation of a departed saint. He
was chosen for the priesthood when
a child by other priests. Two sets
of religious objects are placed be
fore a child—one a new set and the
other a set of objects used by a
departed Lama. If the child selects
the old set he is from that moment
ordained to the priesthood and taken
away from the parents for a life
time of instruction and service.
The customs and practices of the
people have not changed essentially
in the past thousand years. They
have never seen an automobile,
radio, electric lights nor even as
much as a bicycle. Foreigners are
rigorously excluded and it is most
unusual for a white man to gain
access to the interior sacred cities.
