Re: Some thoughts on the situation of Tibet

I know it as moksha and consider myself on the path of pratyeka as 
one that does not like sudden changes but once freed from the wheel, 
dont expect to see me returning in selfless service to mankind or 
anything of the kind. Its strictly splitsville for me. Until then 
however I see a responsibility to ensure that Kali Yuga does not win 
in Tibet.

As for the Tashi Lama, GdeP, the expert theosophist and a big say in 
certain circles has this to say. His prescience in this matter as is 
his prediction of conditions on the moon turns out to be something of 
a turnabout according to what he says in the last paragraph:

"Is it known why the Dalai Lama drove the Tashi Lama out into India? 
He has had to fly to Mongolia and live there in seclusion and hide 
there. It seems a mystery. [Question asked in 1932] 

It is a mystery. I can tell you this: if the truth were known, there 
was no 'driving out' at all. Tibet has been doing its best in 
desperation to keep its frontiers inviolate against the hammering 
tactics of Western European powers trying to penetrate into the 
country; and they have resorted to the age-old Asiatic ways of 
diplomacy -- letting things appear which are not so, if you 
understand me. 

It is true that Tibet in the past has had abominable intestine 
struggles and wars; but that was mostly before the reformation of 
Tsong-kha-pa. After his time, which was the fourteenth century of our 
era, things have been quieter; and century after century has seen a 
happy people, light-hearted, loving learning, cultivating the things 
of the spirit and of the mind. 

There is a great future before the Tibetans. They are a 'young race,' 
evolutionally speaking. They are going to come forth in the future. 
But they won't be Tibetans then as the Tibetans now are."

> I don't know where you got that view. The Mahayana also speaks of 
Pratyeka Buddha's who individually obtain moskva by not becoming 
Bodhisattva. There are also I believe several other unique individual 
conditionals that also allow Moscva before all others. The Vow of the 
Bodhisattva "return" is standard in both lay and left home in 
Mahayana. Hinayana has view of each person is on the gradual path and 
they don't have the Bodhisattva Tradition as the sudden school of 
Mahayana. In the Theosophical teaching the "return" is ingrained for 
us and is described as the "Selfless Service to Mankind" that 
dictates our choice option as the ideal in the samsaric journey. The 
Mahayana is called Sudden School and the Greater Vehicle and the 
Hinayana is called the Gradual School and the lesser Vehicle.
