Dear Jayananda

Here is the quote to which you refer:

"A crisis, in a certain sense, is upon us now, 
and must be met. I might say two crises ? one, 
the Society's, the other for Tibet. For, I may 
tell you in confidence, that Russia is gradually 
massing her forces for a future invasion of that 
country under the pretext of a Chinese war. If 
she does not succeed it will be due to us; and 
herein, at least we will deserve your gratitude. 
You see then, that we have weightier matters than 
small societies to think about; yet, the T.S. must 
not be neglected." ML 5; chronology of George Linton 
and Virginia Hanson.

two bodies were seen lying on the ground in the Barkor area, a

gunshots being fired in the city. The embassy emailed an advisory 
note to Americans warning them to stay away from the city, now in its 
fifth day of anti-Chinese protests.

China not to use violence to quell the protests, which he called "a 
manifestation of the deep-rooted resentment of the Tibetan people 
under the present governance".

and address the long-simmering resentment of the Tibetan people 
through dialogue with the Tibetan people," he said in a statement.

to make a statement, and communications with the tightly-controlled 
Himalayan region are difficult even during calm periods.

the violence on his blog.

lot of Tibetans ran towards Dazhao [Jokhang] temple. I heard 
gunshots. Five army police vehicles drove that way. A large number of 
armed police followed. A few people with blood on their faces were 
taken away."

fire and protests near the Tromsikhang market near the Jokhang temple 
in central Lhasa.
> According to the Free Tibet campaign, there were also protests 
today in the Labrang monastery in Gansu province, where 200 monks led 
demonstrations on the streets. The group said this showed the 
protests were gathering momentum.
> The AFP news agency said one of its reporters saw monks leading a 
crowd of around 300 people near the monastery, one of the most 
important in Tibetan Buddhism.
> Since the first protest by monks on Monday, thousands of armed 
police have locked down monasteries in and around Lhasa. Witnesses 
said today's protesters were mostly lay Tibetans.
> China's Xinhua news agency reported that shops had been set on fire 
in Lhasa but gave no other details. 
> The International Campaign for Tibet said two monks at the Sera 
monastery had stabbed themselves and others had gone on hunger strike.
> About a dozen monks were reportedly detained on Monday, when 
several hundred from the Sera and Drepung monasteries took to the 
streets to mark the 49th anniversary of a failed uprising against 
Beijing. Similar protests took place in the Ganden and Lutsang 
monasteries in Qinghai (known in Tibetan as Amdo) where hundreds of 
monks reportedly chanted slogans calling for their exiled leader, the 
Dalai Lama, to return.

lack of progress in talks between representatives of the Dalai Lama 
and Beijing.
