Tibetan Buddhism is the body of Buddhism religious doctrine practiced in Tibet and parts of the Himalayas. The ideal goal of Tibetan Buddhism is to achieve the enlightenment, or Buddhahood, in order to help others achieve this state. In Buddhahood, there is a sense of bliss, one is freed from all mental obscurities, and all limitations are removed so one is free to help others.
