Theos-World Re: Dalai Lama losing hope for Tibet?

Dear John,

Thank you very much for your overview. I think that what really makes 
America great is his liberal tradition that creates the democratic 
environment in which everyone can find new home. 

It is interesting that one of the Thomas Jefferson's inspirations in 
writing the Declaration of Independence was Jean Bodin's book Les Six 
Livres de la Republique (Paris, 1576) in which he described also an 
ancient ritual of installing dukes in Carantania (Slavic principality 
or first Slovenian "state") in 7th century by people. This page was 
especially bookmarked by Jefferson. And this spark of liberal and 
democratic tradition has persisted through the unpleasant history of 
our small nation in various forms of struggles against religious and 
political oppression and links us to the humanist flame of endeavors 
for individual and collective freedom around the globe.   

Warmest regards,

exile at Dharmasala in India has exhibited good Democratic character 
now contrasted  to what was the norm before the Chinese invaded 
Tibet, in my opinion. The Gelugpa had suppressed many other Tibetan 
Buddhist Sects and had destroyed their Temples, Scripture, and even 
the Monks in the past. They were not the picture of Democracy towards 
their brethren. Now in Dharmasala the Dalai Lama has set in gear a 
high level of facilitation and assistance even to the most abhorrent 
sects like the Ancient Pre-Buddhist Buddhist Bon whom they helped in 
the transference of the very considerable spiritual Literature and 
legacy objects of the Bon now safely extradited from the grasp of the 
atheistic Chinese government. The Dalai Lama has managed to 
facilitate the same help for the Kagyu, and other important Tibetan 
Branches of Buddhism and they have now preserved their Legacy 
Literature and Reliquaries that were smuggled out of Tibet,

Chinese. Many have come to America fullfiling an ancient prophecy 
regarding the "Migration of the Swans" America is bloomed with many 
Tibetan Temples from coast to coast of the different Tibetan Sects. 
Tibet lives and is alive here. They seem to be thriving and happy to 
be here.
>    The Dalai Lama, due to the Chinese Reprisal and kidnaping of the 
Tashi Lama at Shigatse who was the True Spiritual Leader of Tibet had 
the Tashi Lama's Official Duties and Role laid in his lap out of 
expediency. That set the condition whereby the Dalai Lama was 
necessitated to wear both hats. Prior to the suppressive Chinese 
action to deprive Tibet of it's Spiritual Leader the Dalai Lama 
performed the historical norm, that of the "Adminsitrative Leader" of 
Tibet. Now one wonders why no one remembers the Tashi Lama.

the only remaining border dispute between the two nations with Russia 
handing over to the Chinese previously fought for and coveted 
territory and land. Now a new cooperation of the two is begun and a 
new railroad spur to link to Russian fuel resource is to be 
accomplished. China has an ambitious appetite for land and 
territories and the menu is known.

Exile Tibetan Government  restrain any rash action that may agitate 
India's relations with China.
