The situation in Tibet has been becoming increasingly distressing with fears the rising wave of self-immolations by protesting Tibetans will continue for a long time. The Tibetans have accused China of misleading everyone about the self-immolations. YC. Dhardhowa has reported for The Tibet Post International on October 30, 2012: “China Misleads the World and Its Own People On Self-immolations.”

The Tibetan Parliament in exile has said that the Chinese government must address the world and its own people about the causes of the increasing self-immolations by Tibetans in Tibet. The Tibetan Parliament released a statement on Monday stating: “The situation would aggravate if the Chinese leadership does not address the underlying causes of the current crisis.” Last week alone 7 Tibetans set themselves on fire in Tibet.

The Tibetan Parliament has also said, “the Chinese government’s pursuit of hardline policies against the Tibetans and levelling of baseless allegations against His Holiness the Dalai Lama will exacerbate resentments among the Tibetan people.” It has also been highlighted that the Chinese government has been trying to mislead the international community, especially its own people, by making baseless allegations against His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration over the problem in Tibet.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
