In my analysis, the real issue is not that of where Tibet stays. Dalai Lama says, ‘Tibet can stay in China’. I say, "China cannot stay in Tibet." China in Tibet is the real problem.

The Dalai Lama has said that Tibet can remain a part of China if Beijing guarantees to protect the disputed region’s culture and autonomy.

Speaking to mark the 60th anniversary of his exile to India on Sunday, the 82-year-old said Tibetan and Chinese citizens could have a mutually beneficial relationship, daily Indian newspaper The Hindu reported.

The Dalai Lama—the 14th person to be chosen for the position—left Tibet at the start of the unsuccessful 1959 uprising against the Chinese central government. He has since been based in northern India, initially serving as the political and later only spiritual head of the Tibetan community in exile.

“Historically and culturally, Tibet has been independent. The region’s geography shows where Tibet begins,” he said. “So long as the constitution of China recognizes our culture and Tibetan autonomous region’s special history, they can remain [part of China].”

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate noted that while Tibet stood to benefit economically from remaining a part of China, the rest of the country could gain from exposure to Tibetan Buddhism. Although the speech is an important step toward compromise with Beijing, the Dalai Lama stressed the need to protect Tibetan culture.

China has been accused of a “cultural genocide” against the Tibetan people—sometimes by the Dalai Lama himself—over its policy of Sinicization of the region. Beijing has been uncompromising in its rule of the Himalayan region and considers the Dalai Lama a separatist.

The Communist Party has encouraged Han Chinese migration to Tibet and restricted the teaching of traditional languages. Such policies have drawn fierce opposition from Tibetans. In 2008, Tibetan protests against the central government broke out. The movement was brutally suppressed, with scores killed and thousands arrested. Since 2009 there have been more than 100 self-immolations as desperate Tibetans voice their continued dissent.

Nonetheless, the Dalai Lama is now encouraging cooperation and reconciliation. “There was a time when every French looked at the Germans as enemies,” he said. “But today they are in the European Union. Similarly, we can work together.”

The Dalai Lama’s remarks come ahead of a meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 27 and 28. Regional rivalry and border friction have meant relations between the mammoth neighbors have often been tense, and occasionally outright hostile.

The “informal summit” will be held in the central Chinese city of Wuhan and will be the first since the 2017 Doklam border standoff. The Dalai Lama said he was in favor of the meeting, encouraging both leaders to improve relations. “I think it is really good that they are meeting,” he said. “They have to live side-by-side, so it is better to live as a family.”

The Dalai Lama was formally assigned his leadership duties aged just 15. With China’s tight control of Tibet, he has admitted he may be the last to hold the position, and Beijing says it has the power to choose his successor. “The Dalai Lama institution will cease one day,” the leader told the BBC in 2014. “These man-made institutions will cease.”

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.
