The strength nf original Iluddhlsm, as well as Its weakness, lay In Its philosophical character, which eunblcd a thinker, but not the masses, to understand Its laws.

And nfter all the trouble, lludilhtsm hero Is so degraded that Its founder could nercr recognize It. The Idealization ot the great teacher on Omel Khan Is the "laughing Ihiddha," a degraded, debauched look' Inc specimen of an Idol. Another fa vorite object of worship is tho wooden tiger, to whom offerings are mnde to protect the pilgrims from the lively, genuine animals which wander at wilt over the slopes, nnd from whom tho priests nro supposed to Do mysterious ly protected.
