At 12,000 feet above sea level, Lhasa — City of the Sun — has been at the political and economic center of Tibet for 350 years. Since the 7th century, Tibet has existed as a remote mountain theocracy based on the mystical tenents of Lamaism, which is a form of Tantric Indian Buddhism coupled with Tibetan shamanism.
