It was 1949 when China forcefully annexed the independent nation of Tibet, a nation which had NEVER been part of China.
China Claim's to be 5000 years old but that is a bit like us claiming the Celts, the Roman's and then all the other civilization in our nation were
our own civilization as well which is obviously wrong because it is actually only just over 2000 years the same as Tibet but maybe just a few
century's older and before that there may have been a succession of competing culture's even prior to the so called seven kingdom's period and just
perhaps previous unified empires but non as large as Quin Shi Huang (emperor Chin to the rest of us) formed, of course he took SEVEN different
civilization's with different history's, different cultures and languages and probably of different origin's and ages then forged them into a single
unified nation, a little like Mao whom took inspiration from his act (cultural revolution when he tried to erase China's history) he had the
historian's and all other scholars wiped out, there texts burned, there history's erased and only a few horoscope readers (Astrologers I can never
remember that word) and traditional doctor's (quack's though there is some genuine medical knowledge mixed with all that rubbish) survived this.
There were older civilization's in Eurasia, hell even the Crimea may now hold the right's to a civilization older than China and also Japan in the
period before the Korean migration seem's to have had a fully formed culture which probably classifies as a civilization meaning they have more
provenance as well and let's not forget Egypt - the OLD kingdom period which really does date back 5000 year's unlike China which is not a contiguous
civilization at all and certainly not likely to be the same tribe for the full length of there history that now numerically dominated that region.
Let me tell you a strange story about a Tibetan monk whom lived a long time ago, as you know there are several sitting monk mummy's but this is just
one of them, there is a valley in a region bordering Tibet were the people were suffering from a dreadful drought according to there folk history and
they were dying until one day a Monk showed up, he followed the idea of Karmic Transference and believed that he could take the suffering of the
valley unto himself so he meditated and did not eat ordering the people to seal the cave he was in, the drought stopped and the valley returned to a
green and fertile state.
Many years later some Chinese archaeologists stumbled on the sealed cave and after removing the stone's that blocked the entrance they found the monk
perfectly preserved still holding his prayer bead's in his mummified hand and still sitting in his lotus position, they took his body and were going
to send it to Beijing for study when all hell broke loose in the Valley, thing's started to go wrong and it got pretty bad, some people were hurt and
they thought they would have to be evacuated by helicopter it was so bad but the Local's begged them to put the monk back into his cave which they
did, probably out of desperation but it seemed to work, the weather changed back and they left him there which also calmed the local's whom had blamed
his removal for the sudden catastrophe and whom see him as there guardian and protector.
The Odd thing about the Tibetan's you may also remember is the monk's tradition of making intricate Mandala out of colored sand's, these pattern's
are beautiful and full of meaning, each intricate shape and pattern in the design which resembles a Persian rug but many magnitudes more excellent is
telling a story and several monk's at a time work together to make this in harmony but after spending day's or even week's or month's creating this
perfect meditative shape they simply brush it away and start all over again because all thing's must change, all thing's die and only the soul is
real, this world is an illusion, a temporary state on the road to perfection for there spirit's on the journey they must take.
I am in the west, have my opinion's formed like the rest of the sheep from the media and information I have available and so am just like anyone else
in that, whom control's that information controls what my mind has to go off and to formulate its opinions and so they control me whether I like it or
I have heavily edited this comment because to the point it is almost re-written as I was at first quite offended but please bare with me as I am no
longer certain of my own stance because of this which I found as I did a quick search and if it is correct then I have to offer My apology's and note
that I have never read this before so here have a look for yourself, you may actually have a very good point in your stance.
SO I RETRACT my stance against your opinion because you may have bloody good cause to hold it and if this is the case that this information is
correct then Tibet was not a nice place at all, that said the Tibetan's have still suffered under the Chinese including forced sterilization's and
cultural and ethnic persecution.
As far as Tibet is concerned though if this IS correct the Chinese are not so much absolutely dark evil as more of a twilight for Tibet, a dark
Twilight but still there is some light there.
