Postby David N. Snyder » Thu Nov 19, 2009 3:58 pm

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.
‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche
