Stop cheating!

Can it be true that we worked endlessly, about 90% for Buddha and only 10% for Tibet?

It has been approximately 54 years since we left Tibet and we are still fighting for our rights. We have been spending so much time and energy to preserve the Tibetan Buddhism and we succeeded well in this project. But what about Tibet and the people living in Tibet? Of course the question is: how important is Tibet when you compare to Buddha? The answer is that Tibet is the most important question. Still we have been spending so much time promoting Buddhism and its essence to every corner of the world. I think that is an excellent gift from Tibet to the rest of the world.

But what about Tibet and its people – what kind of concrete and objective support did we get from the rest of the world? Hardly any support for Tibet. But Tibetan Buddhism has helped many people by promoting peace, stability, compassion and love in this confused world. Buddhism challenged and helped many people who needed this teaching.

Is it not time for the rest of the world to help Tibet and Dalai Lama, to support his middle way? He is not asking for independence of Tibet. The Tibetan youth are asking for independence, they have their own dreams and goals – let them keep on with their dream!

Tibetans abroad must think about how we are going to support our people in Tibet rather than building huge buildings for Buddha around the world. Buddha’s teaching is useful and it is very important for all, but please do not forget Tibet! From Buddha you obtained the knowledge of love and compassion. Is it not time for us to peacefully act for Tibet and to talk to the Chinese leaders? Otherwise there will be no Tibet in the future; we will just keep fighting in the darkness forever and ever.

So stop deluding yourselves with false hope! Stop cheating our people in Tibet with false hope – instead, do something through dialogue to ease their suffering.

  1. But what can we do? we do protest marches, we donate money to organizations, we write letters to people in different parlaments begging them to listen, we spread informations throughout different media, we help out to build schools in order to enhance the educationssystem in tibet etc etc.

    Unfourtunately it is money who rules the world and as long as china has its strong powerfull economical growth, other countries don´t have the guts to put pressure on them. It is sad, very sad indeed!

    However, with above being said, I will never stop doing what I can in order to help out in any way I can to make Tibet a place where tibetan can be tibetans!

  2. THANK YOU, PETER. YOU ARE A VERY GOOD PERSON FOR YOU ARE KINDLY SUPPORTING OUR CHILDREN IN TIBET. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!
    A HEALTHY ACTION IS MUCH BETTER THAN 100.000 EMPTY WORDS.

    SOENAM

  3. SUPPORT THE PEOPLE OF TIBET AT ANY MEANS!

    Alarming Chinese Influense

    In recent years the situation in Tibet has once again deteriorated, leading in 1987 to open demonstrations against Chinese rule in Lhasa and other parts of the country. One of the principle factors leading to this deterioration has been the large influx of Chinese into Tibet, particularly into its major towns. The exact number of Chinese is difficult to assess, because the vast majority have moved without obtaining official residence permits to do so. Thus, Chinese statistics are entirely misleading, counting as they do only the small numbers of registered immigrants. In Tibet’s cities and fertile valleys, particularly in eastern Tibet, Chinese outnumber Tibetans by two and sometimes three to one. In certain rural areas, particularly in western Tibet, there are very few Chinese. Regardless of the figures, the overall impact of the influx is devastating because the Chinese not only control the political and military power in Tibet, but also the economic life and even cultural and religious life of the people.
