THE PROBLEM OF TIBET – EVICT THE OCCUPIER

His Holiness Dalai Lama turns 75 on July 06, 2010.  

How to describe the Problem of Tibet?

 

THE LAND OF TIBET – “THE ROOF OF THE WORLD”  :  

In size Tibet is as large as three States of Texas combined. It is surrounded by four of the world's ten highest mountains. It is home to about six million Tibetan people.Communist China's military occupation has changed the population composition of this Land.

 

All the major rivers of Asia have their origin in Tibet.

 

Bos grunniens, a long-haired, stocky, wild ox of Tibet is often domesticated as a beast of burden, for its milk, meat, and its butter which is used to light the butter lamps in Gompas, Tibetan Places of Worship.

 

Tibet is the highest plateau in the world and it came into existence when the landmass of India had joined the Asian landmass. All the major rivers of Asia have their origin in Tibet. These rivers support the lives of about 2 billion human beings. The ecology of Tibet is critical in view of global warming and scarcity of water. It has been recorded and found that the rate of warming is faster in Tibet. The mountains are experiencing less snowfall, and the glaciers that feed the rivers are melting and fading away. The extraction of mineral resources, the exploitation of natural resources like forests, and hunting of unique, native animals, the construction of dams and barriers across rivers flowing in Tibet pose dangers to fragile Tibetan ecology. The problem of Tibet is not merely an environmental issue.  

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM OF TIBET ?  

United States Congress honored His Holiness Dalai Lama with a Gold Medal during a ceremony in Washington,DC in 2007. President George W Bush, US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and US Senator Robert C Byrd are seen in the photo. Senator Byrd, the longest-serving member of the US Congress has died at the age of 92 after almost six decades in office. America has lost a voice of Principle and Reason. It is a time for us to reflect upon the Problem of Tibet.

 

Historically, Tibet has existed in a serene and unperturbed state for several centuries. Tibetan people are naturally born free and maintained their traditional sense of Freedom in spite of invasions by foreign forces. In October 1950, Communist China’s People’s Liberation Army invaded Tibetan soil and had occupied it. This military occupation of Tibet poses a direct threat to Tibetan way of life; a direct threat to Tibetan Culture, Tibetan Religion, Tibetan Language, and the ethnic composition of the people of this Land. The problem of Tibet is not simply a concern about Human Rights and Religious Freedom. The Problem of Tibet involves Human Freedom and Human Dignity. Military occupation of Tibet is the very opposite of Human Freedom and Human Dignity.  

THE RESOLUTION OF THE PROBLEM OF TIBET :  

The Flag of Tibet symbolizes the Resolution of the Problem of Tibet. Tibetans have the natural Right to Human Freedom and to live in Dignity.

 

I am not a “SEPARATIST.” I am not seeking SEPARATION of Tibet from China. Tibet is not and has never been a part of China. SEPARATION is not the issue. Tibet is seeking its own existence and its own identity. Tibet is not asking for a new identity or creation of a new state from Chinese territory. Tibet is not demanding a surgical operation to carve out a new nation from an existing nation known as People’s Republic of China. The Problem of Tibet simply relates to the military occupation of the Land of Tibet by China. This Problem could be resolved by the Eviction of the Occupier. It is just to demand such eviction of an illegal occupier. Military occupation is the cause of this Problem of Tibet and eviction of this military force is the resolution that I would want in Tibet.

I seek harmony between doctrines of Idealism and Realism to account for human existence. I welcome thoughts from all directions to understand the nature of Human Identity and Individuality. The multicellular human organism exists as Physical, Mental, Social, Moral, Spiritual being with a Creative Form that cannot be duplicated. For purposes of brevity and simplicity, I divide the human being into two categories; 1. The first is 'SELF' and it represents man as Physical, Mental, and Social Being and 2. The second is, the 'KNOWING-SELF' which represents man as Moral, Rational and Spiritual Being."I am Consciousness, therefore I am", is the proposition that I use to understand the nature of man's Identity and Individuality. Man is a Mortal Being whose Life and Death are operated by Oxidation-Reduction Chemical Reactions. The Physical Being is dissolved by the powerful influence of Time which seem to operate Natural Law of Aging. Things in Nature change with Time but the Identity and Individuality of Man remains the same during his Life Journey. The genotype remains unchanged while the phenotype appears to be changing all the time. In the multicellular human organism, the Consciousness functions to establish Identity of the organism and to defend its Individuality. Consciousness also establishes the Connection, Partnership, Relationship, Yoking, Joining, and Association between the energy dependent man and his energy provider. Man exists in Nature because of his ability to acquire energy from external environmental source. Consciousness in its essence refers to this awareness of energy dependence. I describe the Connection between energy seeker and energy provider as 'God Connection'. Man during all the stages of his existence, and under any given circumstance, either in good health, or ill-health exists on the basis of this 'God Connection' which is an attribute of biological or living function called Consciousness. This conditioned nature of human existence is supported by Power/Energy/Force which can be experienced as Compassion/Mercy/Grace of the Creator who created man as an Individual with unique genome that has never existed in the past and also will never exist in the future. I seek the Unity of Man in Body, Mind, and Soul unlike other common Indian traditions that seek to verify Identity between Human Soul and Divine Soul. My doctrine can be described as Unity Theory of Non-Dualism.

  1. RECGNITION OF TIBBET AS A PART OF CHINA WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST FOLLIES OF NEHRU/CONGRESS- AS BAD AS PARTITION OF INDIA AND CEASE-FIRE IN KASHMIR….TIBBET IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF INDIAN CULTURAL/RELIGIOUS MINDSET- AS ABODE OF SHIVA….AND TIBETAN CULTURE HAS A LOT IN COMMON WITH INDIA.

    INDIA SHOULD STEP UP ITS SUPPORT TO TIBBETAN PEOPLE, AND WITHDRAW RECOGNITION OF CHINA OVER TIBBET

    1. Thank you Anil Goyal for sharing your kind thoughts. When we review the geological past of Indian subcontinent, we can clearly understand as to why Indians and Tibetans share a common destiny. It will be in India’s best interest to protect these people and to defend their Land.

    1. Thank you Baskara Rajan for visiting my site and sharing your view. I have not visited Mt. Kailash and I had the good fortune to serve in Indian Army and I had trekked along the route taken by pilgrims while they travel to Mt. Kailash. During 1973, I had served in that area but Indians were not permitted to make a pilgrimage to Kailash.
