In order to understand Tibetan religious practices, it is necessary to begin with the Bon religion, for it is an indigenous religion of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau enriched with regional and cultural characteristics. As an orthodox religious culture in Tibetan areas before the spread of Buddhism, the Bon religion was an important component of Tibetan traditional culture. Originating in remote antiquity, it underwent all the historical courses that ancient Tibetan society followed, and, consequently, advanced the civilization of Tibetan society in its early stages. At the same time, the Bon religion, claiming broad mass foundation, played an indispensable role in the later development of Tibetan Buddhism.
