The highly sophisticated rituals of Himalayan religious traditions are often depicted in art.

Ritual informs the structure of religious life in the Himalayas, defining the daily routine of practitioners and shaping a range of community-based activities, from festivals to memorials. People perform rituals to achieve a wide range of secular and spiritual goals and to accumulate religious merit. The main purpose for creating sacred art is for use in such ritual contexts.
