The term 'Tantric Buddhism' is applied to a type of Buddhist practice where Tantric plays a dominant role. The word Tantric is derived from the Sanskrit word tantrum, meaning "loom, warp", or figuratively, "groundwork, system, doctrine", where tan means "to stretch, extend". Buddhist Tantric quickly spread out of India into nearby countries like Tibet and Nepal in the eighth century, as well as to Southeast Asia. Today, Buddhist tantric is primarily found in all of the Tibetan lineages and also in Japanese Buddhism, especially Shinbone. Tantric texts and practices, some with considerable resemblance to Buddhist versions, are also found in Hinduism.
