According to scriptures, in Tibetan Buddhism, the state of being is seen as light which has no form and interpreted as the 'Tathagata of Unhindered Light'.

Furthermore, the Buddha nature within the inner self is assumed as the un-created and deathless element that is innate within all human beings to be awakened through religious practices, meditations and mantras. Primarily, meditation and mantra chant are used primarily to acquire right concentration.

Here are ABCs of Tibetan Buddhism: A: Ahimsa or non-violence is seen a way of life; B: Becoming and being treated as bhavas or attitudes or states of mind; C: Cause-and-effect law in Buddhism or karma (action) principle; D:desires are the source of strife causing "ignorance" or "delusion"; and E: Eightfold Path of liberation consisting of Right View; Right Thought; Right Speech; Right Action; Right Living; Right Effort; Right Mindfulness; and Right Concentration.
