Just thought i'd let everyone know, that the Karma kagyu monastery Thrangu monastery has been destroyed after years of building. Check out the prayer thread for more info.

It is hard ...

May all who went beyond found a peaceful place,

All is perfect, I cannot pretend it's the other way,
May this disaster stick Chinese and Tibetan together,
May the world turn his head on them,
May a new dawn rise on Tibet
