Freedom for Tibet

Namaste to you all, I've now spent about two weeks in Mcleod Ganj. As you know this is where most of the population are Tibetan refugees. After spending only this small amount of time with these beautiful people, I have come to realize that these people truly are the most open hearted, caring, loving and happy people I have ever met. Through my teachings over the years I've come to not be so attached to circumstances around me(or at lease be aware of how I'm reacting to a person or situation). Being around these wonderful people makes it hard for me not to feel pain in my heart and tears in my eyes, when I see what the Chinese Government have done to these inspirational people.

When I was younger I used to always talk politics to people and I tell you I was very passionate about what I believed, overtime I've learned not to get so upset at certain things that are going on in the world. I know there's a part of me that understands this, what is happening to the Tibetan people is all for a perfect reason, that this maybe all karmic, that as souls they've all come to this earth plane to experience these atrocities. But I realize there's a huge part of me that still feels overwhelmed by the countless stories I've been told and the number of documentaries that I've seen in the past two weeks.

So I'm going to help as much as I can and I hope you all can do the same. You must realize that if you live in the West we really don't get the truth of whats going on in Tibet. I now realize for some reason especially the Australian media don't want anything to do with whats going on. Looking at it nor do most of the governments around the world. Why? I'll tell you all why, MONEY!!!!! China has most of the worlds governments under their thumb.

The Australian government especially are very spineless, they are that bad they didn't even recognize His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a political leader, because they would offend China if they did. I've been told that they only let one hundred Tibetan refugees from Tibet in our country each year, compared to ten thousand a year in Canada. Yet they'll let thousands of other people in that don't even want to assimilate with other people or our culture. I'll tell you all now there should be thousands upon thousands of these people let into Australia. As I said you cant help but feel open hearted and loving when your around these people, they have allot to teach the West. And maybe this is the true reason that all this is happening so these beautiful souls will be forced to spread themselves around the world to show the rest of us how to truly live and be.

So what can we do? well I'll do it all for you, you just have to sign petitions when I place them on my blog. Maybe even write to your local member or our spineless government's, showing that as a people, as fellow humans we are not happy with how the Tibetans are been treated. I know this works because a nun was released from prison not long ago seven years before she was supposed to be released. Thousands of people signed a petition and brought it to the attention of Amnesty international and their governments. I wont go into the details of the conditions these beautiful souls are placed in, while they're in prison, but I tell you if you think what happened to the Jews in the the past two world wars was bad, these poor unfortunate people are experiencing the same if not worse.

So please every single one of you, please try something to help these people, before its to late. That sounds drastic I know but the Chinese are quickly killing their whole way of being, they're very smart. I'll put websites on so you can all have a read and see for yourselves whats really going on.

Here are some sites I've found, I've also talked with heads of some of these organizations. They all are doing a wonderful job, but they need our help, NOW. look around the site there are two petitions to sign. One is for Tenzin Delek Rinpoche and the other is for one of the most important people in Tibetan society the Panchen Lama. His name is Gedhun Choekyi Nyima and guess what he's child. Yes the Chinese have even taken a child as a political prisoner, which I might add is highly illegal, everyone knows this but again they just sit on their hands.

Here's a few more, see what you can do., and, if you know any other groups please feel free to put them on my blog.

Here are some photos I took whilst in Mcleod Ganj, these Tibetans were protesting over the slaughter of innocent Tibetans at the border a few months back.
