yet the great compassionate lord ruled over his people like any taken example of our current world ruling elite.
in pre historic tibet people suffered from extreme poverty and bad living conditions, people were illiterate if not monks and basically living a life of slavery.
while the elite monks lived in palaces and enjoyed different pleasures to the fullest.
i understand this is controversial topic, and even for me it seems that if i question the authority of the dalai lama the whole culture and religious facts, taken for granted in some cases seem to collapse and destroy the whole view of how tibetan buddhist religion is.
so it would be nice to have topic on this, if we can muster in any conversation.
and anyone with any historical knowledge on this topic it would be nice to have that information here.
