Here is a good report on the Chinese occupation of Tibet, by Ven. Dhammika, who recently went on pilgrimage there:

Interesting article, David. I like how it's a first-hand account, and I like the mental juxtaposition of Nazi Germany with current-day Tibet.

In any case we should act with wisdom and compassion. As hero's our world has enough.


The torture in the prisons is continuing for political prisoners in Tibet. Those who love the Dalai Lama or say something against the communists are horrible tortured right now. TORTURE MUST STOP!

The United nations, Amnesty International, Human Rights should get more power and not by governments pushed away due to economical and other priorities.

People from everywhere should ask their government to focus on Human Rights for all our human family and specially to stop torture.
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
