¿Why Tibet?

Tibet’s profoundly spiritual culture has much to offer the world. Under the compassionate leadership of HH the Dalai Lama, their non violent practice has become a model for global peace, but while the western world has embraced many fashionable aspects of Tibetan culture and prayer flags have become commonplace as a Feng Shui accoutrement, Tibet, still struggles for survival under an oppressive and destructive foreign regime.

In 1950, the Chinese People's Liberation Army invaded Tibet, defeating Tibet's small and unprepared armed forces.

Since 1959, under complete Chinese dominance, Tibetans have endured brutal practices that are inexorably leading to the destruction and degradation of their environment, unique culture and population.

Hundreds of thousands of Tibetans have been killed or have died as a result of famine induced by poor governance. Fear of arrest, imprisonment and torture are still a fact of daily life for most Tibetans. Tibetans are now a minority in their own country and are treated as second class citizens.

They are still not permitted to freely engage in Buddhist practices. Educational opportunities are limited and expensive, and only available in the Chinese language. Tibetan culture and society is rapidly being eroded under the influence of the overriding Chinese occupation.
