That's the whole point of their term Karma, it’s probably from many successive lifetimes and this is just another on their way to
'enlightenment'. A Buddhist isn't 'attached' to their earthly bodies as you and I are (although they want as much time to be useful and
progress). I think you need to search this topic and look at some Buddhist books to understand the concept more?
I know from which angle you are looking at this whole karma case. The problem is that people who are saying the things like you and many others
"believe" that the "suffering of Tibetans" is "THE cause of this earthquake." But this is exactly where the reasoning and the judgment of you
guys is very skewed and to my humble opinion very wrong, which is very one-sided and biased.
With the same way of reasoning, strictly speaking, this is like saying that the victims are now dead because all these victims did not stand up
against the Iraq invasion by the USA in 2003 and therefore the Earthquake is a direct karma for them.
Besides the fact that the so-called suffering of the Tibetans is mostly fabricated by the anti-China Western MSM propaganda machines, one have to have
an all-mighty knowledge of all single current AND historic events in the world and of each victim's personal situation before anyone can judge and
point out what the exact cause is for their dying. It could as well be a cause happened lifes before this one, when the victims might have been
Japanese soldiers participated in the Rape of Nanjing or each single taken life is actually a benevolent boddhivista by self-sacrificing their current
life to raise up the self-conscienious of the world's mind.
Bottom line is that human beings are not in the position to make any judgment to point out what the actual cause is, because one single person's
version of truthness is pretty much always limited and restricted. The Tibet issue might be THE CAUSE in the version of truthness of many biased and
prejudiced minds, but these minds might need to dig deep and make more realistic and neutral research before yelling out this claim of their version
of the truth. After all we are talking about karma, and by spreading hatred against a whole population of a conscience nation, then they are maybe
storing up bad karma to be felt in the future of their personal life, either this one or future ones.
P.s. Re-read my posts before you make a judgment if I am a buddhist or not, or what I supposedly according to your version of reality know or not
know. Also I made a post addressing the collective karma issue, read it answer it, before we go on, ok?
