Lhasa – Big Pixel

I’ve heard from my friends who had been there that you would be moved to tears because of its amazing beauty and you would get unsophisticated under the influence of the local people there. In June 2016, we were given the chance to visit the mysterious and challenging place. When arriving in Lhasa, altitude stress may be the most direct experience of a person who lives inland for a long time. The Qing Empire and surrounds in 1910. Tibet Map XIX Century. Tibet.

CINA Pechino chiude il Tibet agli stranieri perché 'soffrono per l’altitudine'

Xinhua sostiene che la crescita economica, l'aumento della durata della vita e una migliore istruzione nella regione confutano le affermazioni dei critici secondo cui i tibetani sono oppressi da Pechino. New Delhi (AsiaNews) – Migliaia di tibetani hanno manifestato ieri a New Delhi nell’anniversario della fallita rivolta del 1959 contro l’invasione cinese della loro patria. Pechino, intanto, da settimane nega i permessi per visitare la regione, affermando che l'accesso al Tibet è limitato perché gli stranieri soffrono per l’altitudine. Da parte sua Pechino difende il suo dominio affermando che coloro che mettono in discussione le sue politiche stanno semplicemente mostrando pregiudizi anti-cinesi. E domenica scorsa, un editoriale del Tibet Daily del Partito comunista ha accusato il Dalai Lama di “seminare il caos in Tibet”.

Their cause? Defending the official line of the Communist Party.

The announcement triggered outrage among Chinese students who view the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader as an oppressive figure threatening to divide a unified China.

China’s new directive on controversial Shugden spirit in Tibet in bid to further discredit Dalai Lama - International Campaign for Tibet. A copy of the document, entitled “Some opinions on dealing correctly with the ‘Gyalchen Shugden’ issue” and issued by the General Office of the Communist Party Committee of the Tibet Autonomous Region, is translated below from Tibetan into English.

China’s new directive on controversial Shugden spirit in Tibet in bid to further discredit Dalai Lama - International Campaign for Tibet

It was released on February 20, 2014, but has only just reached ICT due to restrictions on information and the dangers of sending such documents outside Tibet. The document states that the issue “should be given a high degree of importance, and clearly recognized as a deceitful ploy by the 14th Dalai’s Clique to split the country.” This characterization of the issue indicates that Tibetans who encourage others not to propitiate the spirit in accordance with the Dalai Lama’s advice could face criminal charges and imprisonment.

The Dalai Lama, who himself had propitiated Shugden at one time, has said that after thorough investigation there were “profound historical, social and religious problems associated with it.”[1] Footnotes. India strikes a deal with China on Tibetans. By: René Muller The clock is ticking and it does not seem like the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has a lot of time left or much administration work to perform in the very near future.

India strikes a deal with China on Tibetans

This article could not have surfaced at a better time, bringing attention to a few very crucial yet sensitive points surrounding the inevitable – that the Tibetans have to face the reality of “what will happen after the Dalai Lama enters clear light?” The future undoubtedly looks uncertain for the entire Tibetan diaspora community in India, as the number of refugees coming into India has drastically dropped. Here are some of painfully obvious facts brought forth in article, which I would like to highlight. Where is Tibet: A litany of lies from the Tibetan leadership.

Over the years, the Tibetan leadership have made many promises about Dorje Shugden, none of which have materialized over time. Who’s the hypocrite? Chinese nationals protesting for their freedoms in Tiananmen Square By: Kay Beswick On June 4, 1989, hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals marched into Tiananmen Square to protest the suppression, discrimination and humiliation that their leadership had subjected them to for many years.

By the end of the day, thousands of people had lost their lives, after an order was issued by their own leaders to end the protest at all costs. 25 years later, and the world commemorates the courage of these people to stand up for the truth: that there is a universal set of basic human rights that should be granted to every individual, regardless of their station and background in life. The Tibetan leadership’s vehemence over the ban is reminiscent of the Communist Party’s rhetoric in 1989 at Tiananmen Square One such freedom these men and women were bravely protesting for was the freedom of worship. The Dalai Lama with Prime Minister Lobsang Sangey (left) and Samdhong Rinpoche (right). China has no legitimacy in spiritual matters: Tibetan PM.

By Tenzin Monlam DHARAMSHALA, January 25: The Prime Minister of Tibetan government in exile (Sikyong) Dr. Lobsang Sangay condemned the 'Authentic Living Buddha list’ published by China's religious affairs administration on January 18, calling it ‘an attempt to control the reincarnation system of Tibetan Buddhism’. The Tibetan PM told ANI on Friday that the Chinese government lacks credibility and legitimacy in spiritual matters. “I am sure they have plans to control the reincarnation system and the reincarnation lamas.

But, it will not be credible because neither they have the legitimacy nor credibility in spiritual matters,” Sangay was quoted as saying. According to the State Administration for Religious Affairs, the system is placed to counter ‘fake’ lamas who it said are undermining Tibetan Buddhism by cheating believers out of cash. China’s Reincarnation Database Has Verified The Existence of 870 Living Buddhas. But How? Two monks chatting (probably about this new government list) inside a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. (Photo: Luca Galuzzi/WikiCommons CC BY-SA 2.5) While government regulation of reincarnation might sound tricky, China’s Communist Party has gone ahead and given it a go. On January 18, they published an official list of 870 “living Buddhas” who, in Tibetan Buddhism, are believed to be the reincarnations of prominent lamas or religious leaders.

The list is available to anyone online, and includes each lama’s name, photo, monastic title, date of birth, certification, and resident monastery.

Early Tibetan Mandalas. 3-D Mandalas — Padma Studios. After the Tibetan diaspora, the sacred art of creating 3-D mandalas according to ancient tradition became nearly extinct. In the 1960's Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche (then head of the Nyingma, or "Ancient" lineage of Tibetan Buddhism) requested the Ven.

Lama Tsarak Gonpo Tenzing Rinpoche to pass on this rare and sacred art form, that it be preserved and shared with future generations. The Ven. Lama Gonpo was considered a living treasure of Tibet, and one of the only Tibetans in exile who held an intact artistic and spiritual lineage with the knowledge to create 3-D mandalas in their entirety. Ven. Guge - Submerged in the Cosmic Kingdom. Among the Shangri-Las scattered through the remote mountain valleys and passes of the Himalayas and the Karakoram, the most exotic may well be the once flourishing medieval kingdom of Guge. It’s not so easy to go there; the closest airport is at Ali (Ngari) in far western China, still a grueling ten-hour drive or more from the great Guge sites. The roads south from Lhasa, some 1,200 miles away, are a challenge. The altitude is high, the climate harsh, the entire route rough as a real pilgrimage should be.

Guge was once home to a major inner-Asian dynasty whose artists and craftsmen produced a plethora of masterpieces over some five centuries. The curious case of the Tibetan skull drum.
