TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – RED CHINA – LIVE BY THE SWORD – PERISH BY THE SWORD

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – RED CHINA – LIVE BY THE SWORD – PERISH BY THE SWORD. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS GOLDEN RULE.

Red China conquered Tibet using the power of her Sword and she oppresses Tibet with her Sword’s Power. I have to share these words with Red China: “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.” If Red China Lives by the Sword, surely, She will Die by the Sword. No exceptions to this Golden Rule(Reference. Book of Matthew 26:52).

CHINA HAS TURNED TIBETAN PLATEAU INTO VAST MILITARY ZONE, CLAIMS CORE GROUP

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA Updated: November 05, 2015 01:13 IST

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – RED CHINA – LIVE BY THE SWORD – PERISH BY THE SWORD. CHINA TURNED TIBETAN PLATEAU INTO VAST MILITARY ZONE.

Guwahati: China has turned the Tibetan Plateau into a “vast military zone” deploying a large number of troops with most of them along the Indian sub-continent, claimed the Core Group for Tibetan Cause (CGTC).

“China has turned the once peaceful and buffer state between India and China into a vast military zone. The militarisation of the Tibetan Plateau profoundly affects the geopolitical balance of the region, which causes serious international tension, particularly in the Indian sub-continent,” claimed the Core Group for Tibetan Cause, an apex coordinating body of Tibet Support Groups all over India.

In a publication distributed in the 5th All India Tibet Support Groups Conference that concluded here yesterday, it claimed that as part of its militarisation, China has “17 secret radar stations, 14 military airfields, eight missile bases with eight Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles and 20 intermediate range missiles”.

Referring to the China’s 1,118-km railway project in Tibet connecting Gormo to Lhasa, it claimed that “China’s determination to construct the rail link to Lhasa is of political and military need”.

The CGTC held its 5th All India Tibet Support Groups conference here on November 2 and 3 which was addressed by Tibetan Government in-exile in India Prime Minister Dr Lobsang Sangay and Information and International Relations Minister Dicki Chhoyang.

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER

Posted on Updated on

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. TIBET PROBLEM WILL NOT GO AWAY AND TIBET CAN NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. THERE IS NO BALANCE OF POWER IN SOUTHEAST ASIA WITH RED CHINA’S MILITARY DOMINATION THREATENING PEACE AND STABILITY OF WORLD.

The Problem of Balance of Power in Southeast Asia became apparent with founding of People’s Republic of China on October 01, 1949. Red China’s Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong wasted no time to declare his ambitious ‘Expansionist’ Policy. United States along with India gave due importance to this Tibet Problem and initiated action to respond to Red China’s Military and Economic Expansionism.

TIBET ON THE BACK BURNER

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS - TIBET PROBLEM - ON THE BACK BURNER. NIXON-KISSINGER GET CREDIT FOR PLACING TIBET ON THE BACK BURNER. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW.
TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. NIXON-KISSINGER GET CREDIT FOR PLACING TIBET ON THE BACK BURNER. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW.

US 37th President, Richard M Nixon placed Tibet Problem on the Back Burner in pursuit of his sinful desire to befriend Mao Zedong and Zhou En-Lai totally ignoring their Crimes against Humanity. Tibet’s time in History has arrived. Tibet Problem can no longer remain on the Back Burner. The time for action is NOW.

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS - TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. IN 1971, INDIA REFUSED TO KEEP PROBLEM OF BANGLADESH ON THE BACK BURNER. INDIA TOOK UNILATERAL, DECISIVE ACTION TO RESOLVE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN BANGLADESH.

During 1971, Nixon-Kissinger placed the problem of Genocide in East Pakistan on the Back Burner. India refused to go along with Nixon-Kissinger and insisted that the humanitarian crisis in East Pakistan deserves a very high priority. India acted alone, and decisively resolved Bangladesh Crisis.

Nixon-Kissinger did not ‘NORMALIZE’ US-CHINA relations. Without Power Equilibrium in Southeast Asia, US cannot hope for normal relations with Red China.

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. INDIA AND UNITED STATES CANNOT AFFORD TO IGNORE RED CHINA’S MILITARY DOMINATION OF TIBET.

NIXON-KISSINGER – TIBET – ON THE BACK BURNER

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. IN 1971, NIXON-KISSINGER IGNORED HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN EAST PAKISTAN LEAVING IT ON THE BACK BURNER.

NIXON-KISSINGER – TIBET – ON THE BACK BURNER. Archer Kent Blood, the US Consul General at Dacca, East Pakistan sent this “Blood Telegram” to question the US Foreign Policy that utterly failed to denounce the atrocities, the massacre of innocent, unarmed civilians, mostly Hindu minority community living in East Pakistan during 1971 by the military rulers of Pakistan. He sent this telegram as his moral duty to uphold the humanitarian principles.

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. DURING 1971-72, NIXON-KISSINGER PLACED TIBET PROBLEM ON THE BACK BURNER. THE PROBLEM IS TOO IMPORTANT AND THEY DID NOT BURY IT. THEY LEFT IT SIMMERING.

NIXON-KIISINGER – TIBET – ON THE BACK BURNER. Richard Milhous Nixon, 37th President of the United States(1969-1974), and Dr Alfred Henry Kissinger, the National Security Adviser(1969-1975) deserve to be known as Whole Villains for not responding to the problem of genocide in East Pakistan( now known as Bangladesh) during 1971. Their actions are evil, unprincipled, and make mockery of the US Constitution.

The word ‘Villain’ describes a wicked or unprincipled character in a novel, play, etc., who opposes the protagonist or hero. Villain is someone or something regarded as the cause of a problem, difficulty, injustice, or great crime. It speaks about the evil nature of a person, very bad, disagreeable, or objectionable and such a person is often characterized as a ‘scoundrel’.

I am pleased to share Ashok Malik’s review of the book “The Blood Telegram – India’s Secret War in East Pakistan” authored by Gary J. Bass. The book reveals Archer Kent Blood, the chief US diplomat in Dacca as the hero or protagonist who had suffered on account of the actions of President Nixon and Dr. Kissinger, the National Security Adviser during 1971 . The real character and nature of President Nixon and Kissinger as ‘Villains’ can be easily discerned by reading this historical story titled “The Blood Telegram.” The book talks of the courage and uprightness of Archer Blood who was a first-hand witness to the genocide in East Pakistan, oppression of Bengali speaking Pakistanis, the mass murder and elimination of Hindu minorities and the humanitarian crisis that spilled into a massive refugee problem in India. Mr. Blood meticulously reported the massacres, the bloodshed in East Pakistan and had urged the US administration to take action to stop the military dictator of West Pakistan. Mr. Blood suffered greatly for his efforts and devotion to work. He was ignored, singled out and victimized by Dr. Kissinger. Mr. Blood’s career in the US State Department was utterly ruined and destroyed. This book is the story of what Mr. Blood did and how he suffered for being true to his conscience and his calling. It must be noted that the men and women who make up the State Department or work for the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) are often conscientious, well-meaning folks, schooled in the simplicity and goodness of small-town, middle class life in the heart of America. They are moral people, keen to use their country’s power to make the world a better place. Such conscientious people who belonged to the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) had rendered their service at a military organization in India known as Special Frontier Force or Establishment No. 22. Both the US President Richard M. Nixon, and Dr. Henry Kissinger, the National Security Adviser must be recognized as “WholeVillains” for their actions were motivated by an unprincipled desire to befriend Communist China without any concern for its involvement in killing its own people during the “Great Leap Forward” program of 1957-58, and during the infamous “Cultural Revolution” of 1966-69. The story reveals how Nixon and Kissinger were blinded by hate for India and Indians. They had visualized Pakistan as an essential ally and gateway to Communist China and had totally ignored the problem of human suffering in the Land that took a very painful birth as Bangladesh after India’s victory in a military battle during November-December 1971.

Gary J Bass, Professor of Politics & International Affairs at Princeton University is the author of the book titled

The role of General Yahya Khan, the military ruler of Pakistan, and US President Nixon in the brutal killings of unarmed civilians in East Pakistan during 1971 is now fully revealed. This is their photo image dated October 24, 1970. In this relationship, the US has totally disregarded the value of Democracy and showed no concern for Human Dignity and ignored its traditional role of defending Human Rights.

WholeDude - WholeVillain: Dr. Henry Kissinger is the Arch Villain in this story. Kissinger flew to China from Pakistan and had used Pakistan as a gateway to Communist China. Both of these Villains are responsible for the millions of people who died in the land called East Pakistan during 1971.

NIXON-KISSINGER – TIBET – ON THE BACK BURNER. Mockery of the US Constitution. Dr. Henry Kissinger is the Arch Villain in this story and he is seen in this photo meeting the leader of another country while responsibility of conducting diplomacy belonged to the US State Department. Kissinger flew to China from Pakistan and had used Pakistan as a gateway to Communist China. Both of these Villains are responsible for the millions of people who died in East Pakistan during 1971. Kissinger had misused and abused his position as the National Security Adviser. In clear violation of the US Constitution, he had usurped power of the Secretary of State to conduct secretive, diplomatic negotiations with foreign leaders.

During 1971, I had served in a military organization called Establishment No. 22, or Special Frontier Force which in reality represents a military alliance/pact between India, Tibet, and the United States to contain the military threat posed by Communist China’s illegal occupation of Tibet. It must be noted that Nixon had served as Vice President for two terms 1953-1956, and 1957-1960, during the presidency of Dwight David Eisenhower. President Eisenhower and his Secretary of State John Foster Dulles continued President Truman’s policy of containing Communism. In Southeast Asia, Eisenhower supported and had employed the Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) to organize the Tibetan Resistance Movement since 1957-58. Later, President John F. Kennedy took the initiative to formulate the military alliance with India and Tibet that created the Special Frontier Force during 1962. The Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) has represented the US as our military partner and took the initial responsibility to impart the necessary military training to all personnel. Its Mission is that of fighting a war to evict China from the Land of Tibet and the men are not used for spying, or gathering intelligence as undercover agents. The CIA has used the services of this Organization to monitor the nuclear activities of Communist China as China was conducting underground nuclear tests inside Tibet. During 1971-72, in a complete reversal of its foreign policy, the United States allowed the National Security Adviser to change the course of the country and to make decisions on foreign relations without giving any role to the duly appointed Secretary of State. Kissinger used the infrastructure of US State Department to orchestrate a policy that has ignored the vital US national interests and its commitment to Democracy and Freedom. Kissinger had chosen to support Pakistan’s military dictator and had used him to gain access to the Communist Leaders in Peking that paved the way for President Nixon’s visit to China during February 1972. This book reveals as to how Nixon was baffled and annoyed by American sympathies for India and he communicated this opinion to Pakistan’s military dictator General Yahya Khan and observed that Americans could be suffering from a “physiological disorder.” Nixon and Kissinger encouraged other countries to illegally ship their US supplied weapons to Pakistan violating US laws that prohibit such transfer of military equipment. Kissinger had urged China’s Foreign Minister Chou En-Lai to open a second front and attack India to stop India from giving assistance to the people of East Pakistan. As India initiated the Liberation of Bangladesh, Nixon sent the US Seventh Fleet into Bay of Bengal without any concern about India’s logistical support to the US Army that was fighting a bloody war in Vietnam, a war in which Communist China had played a big role to ensure defeat of the US Army.

NIXON-KISSINGER – TIBET – ON THE BACK BURNER. During April 1969, Chairman Mao Tsetung had selected his Defence Minister Lin Biao as his successor and Lin became the Vice Chairman of the Communist Party. Both of them must be held accountable for the atrocities, the crimes against humanity perpetrated in the name of “Cultural Revolution” during 1966-69. WHOLEDUDE - WHOLEVILLAIN: Defence Minister and Communist Party Vice Chairman, the successor of Chairman Mao Tsetung was apparently assassinated by Prime Minister Chou En-lai and Chairman Mao Tsetung on September 13, 1971 as he tried to escape from the country. After his killing, most of the People's Liberation Army's Generals of high command were purged. It totally amazes me to know that the US National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger would request Prime Minister Chou En-Lai to launch a military attack on India during that time to prevent India from taking military action to resolve the humanitarian crisis in East Pakistan.

During 1971, the US National Security Adviser, Dr Henry Kissinger had kept his visit to Peking as a big secret. However, at Special Frontier Force, Establishment No. 22, we were fully aware of his activities. The Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) officials who were serving at Establishment No.22 as military instructors were abruptly asked to return to the United States. Communist China had insisted that it would agree to meet Henry Kissinger and receive him in Peking only after the United States removes all its personnel from India who at that time were employed in the Special Frontier Force/Establishment No. 22. After their departure, India and Tibet had agreed to jointly launch a military action in Chittagong Hill Tracts to initiate the Liberation of Bangladesh and to stop the genocide in East Pakistan.

WholeDude - WholeVillain: On November 04, 1971, India's Prime Minister Indira Gandhi made a final attempt to get support from President Richard Nixon to resolve the humanitarian crisis in East Pakistan. By that time, US had already decided to remove all its CIA personnel who were employed as military instructors at Special Frontier Force/Establishment No. 22. However, we began our military operation to initiate Liberation of Bangladesh without any assistance from the US personnel deputed by the CIA.

India launched a Secret War in East Pakistan to respond to the huge humanitarian crisis which could not be resolved. United States pretended its ignorance of this whole problem. This military operation was given the code name Operation Eagle. On November 03, 1971, while India’s Prime Minister was visiting Washington D.C. in a final bid to enlist the support of President Nixon, Special Frontier Force without the US personnel moved into Chittagong Hill Tracts. President Richard Nixon had failed to endorse our military action, but we executed this military action using military equipment, field gear and rations provided by the United States. The infantry weapons and all other tools that we had used were the same as those used by the US Army in its Vietnam War. We prevailed in the battlefield and forced Pakistan’s Army to withdraw from their entrenched positions. The official war of India with Pakistan was declared by India’s Prime Minister on December 03, 1971.

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – BALANCE OF POWER IN TIBET

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – BALANCE OF POWER IN TIBET. US PRESIDENT DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER WITH INDIAN PRESIDENT DR BABU RAJENDRA PRASAD AT RASHTRAPATI BHAVAN, NEW DELHI. TIBET, INDIA, AND THE US WORK TOGETHER TO RESTORE BALANCE OF POWER IN OCCUPIED TIBET. PHOTO TAKEN IN DECEMBER 1959.

Balance of Power refers to distribution of military and economic power among nations that is sufficiently even to keep any one of them from being too strong or dangerous. The term ‘Balance’ describes a state of equilibrium or equipoise, equality in power between two nations. Red China’s economic and military power is far greater than power of Tibet and hence there is no equilibrium in Tibet. Red China’s overwhelming economic and military power has serious consequences to all nations in her neighborhood. To restore this Balance of Power, Tibet has willingly joined a larger group by allying with India, and United States. Special Frontier Force is a military organization that represents Tibet’s alliance with India and USA. While Red China demands “STABILITY” in Occupied Tibet, Tibet and the alliance partners reject Red China’s demand for it will not resolve the problem of Balance of Power. To the same extent, Red China has rejected Tibet’s demand for meaningful autonomy or “MIDDLE WAY” as means to restore Tibet Equilibrium.

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM - BALANCE OF POWER IN OCCUPIED TIBET. THE GREAT TIBET PROBLEM WILL EXIST UNTIL BALANCE OF POWER IS RESTORED IN OCCUPIED TIBET.

Most of my readers know that CIA takes orders from the Executive Branch of Power called US Presidency. The other two branches of Power are known as the US Congress(Legislative Power) and the US Supreme Court(Judicial Power) and the Balance of Power between these three branches is maintained by US Constitution. CIA has no external source of funding for its activities. The US Congress approves National Budget for  funding requests submitted by Executive Branch. Hotel Mount Annapurna in Nepal that supported CIA operation,  was funded by US President Richard M Nixon and American citizens, the taxpayers who provide funds to the Government for further use as allocated by a Budget plan duly approved by representatives of elected by people and signed into a Law by the US President. I categorically affirm that all CIA operations to help Tibetan Guerillas are funded by the US Congress and Budget Laws signed by the US President. I thank US President Dwight David Eisenhower and the US Congress for supporting Tibetan Resistance Movement to counteract Red China’s Evil Power.

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – BALANCE OF POWER IN TIBET. HOTEL MOUNT ANNAPURNA IN NEPAL OPENED IN 1973, WITH FUNDING SANCTIONED BY US PRESIDENT RICHARD M NIXON.

POKHARA, Nepal—It’s been 43 years since the CIA cut off support to the Tibetan guerillas that the agency trained and armed to fight a covert war against China. Yet, a monument to the CIA’s secret war in Tibet is still standing in Pokhara, Nepal.

The former Hotel Mount Annapurna building sits on a quiet side street off the Pokhara airport. Established in 1972 with CIA funds, the hotel was meant to give former Tibetan resistance fighters based in Nepal’s nearby Mustang region a livelihood and a future as they laid down their arms and transitioned to life as refugees.

Tibetan guerillas and their families ran the hotel until it closed in 2010. Today, the Hotel Mount Annapurna building is a nursing school. The aging concrete structure with 1960s lines looks tired and nondescript. Paint is peeling off the exterior walls. The once lush and well manicured landscaping is overgrown and wilted. This relic of the CIA’s secret Cold War guerilla campaign in Tibet is now locked behind a rusting metal gate and easily overlooked. It is in a part of town into which tourists rarely venture.

The area around the Pokhara airport was prime real estate in the 1970s. But business slowly dried up as Pokhara’s tourism center of gravity shifted to the Phewa Lake shoreline to accommodate waves of hippies and trekkers. The Lodrik Welfare Fund—an NGO that former Tibetan resistance fighters created in 1983 to provide welfare for veterans and their families—currently owns the property and rents it out to the Gandaki Medical College.

“This used to be the best spot, but we shut down because there was no business,” said Tsultrim Gyatso, chairman of the Lodrik Welfare Fund and former manager of the Hotel Mount Annapurna. His father was a Mustang resistance fighter.
Gyatso was born in Pokhara in 1972. He worked at the Hotel Mount Annapurna from 1989 to 2010 and was the hotel’s manager at the time it shut down.

Gyatso currently works next door to the former hotel property out of the same offices that were a command center for the Mustang resistance in the 1960s and 1970s—the office he works in was opened in 1962 for the resistance movement. “My father worked in this very office when he was an intelligence officer for the resistance,” Gyatso said.

OVERLOOKED LEGACY

Today there are few visible clues to the former hotel’s guerilla heritage. In the lobby there is a framed poster of Mt. Kailas (the most holy mountain in Tibet), which is hanging next to a painting of the hotel in its glory days. There is also a painted mural on the wall of the main stairwell, the imagery of which pays homage to the fighting spirit of Tibet’s resistance fighters.

The security guard at the gate offered a confused look when asked about the building’s Cold War history. Younger shop owners on the adjacent street shrugged their shoulders politely and said they knew nothing about Tibetan resistance fighters. A few older shop owners, however, acknowledged the hotel used to be run by “Khampas”—a reference to Tibet’s Kham region, which is known for its warriors and bandits and was the birthplace of Tibet’s guerilla campaign after the 1950 Chinese invasion.

Those who knew about the hotel’s past, however, were reluctant to talk about it. Questions about the CIA and Tibetan resistance movement spurred worried looks and anxious body language. One older shop owner, a Sherpa from the Solukhumbu region near Mt. Everest, offered an explanatory hint when he claimed pressure from Maoist rebels during Nepal’s civil war (1996-2006) forced the hotel to shut down. As proof, he pointed to Maoist graffiti on a wall across from the hotel’s entrance.
“They’re bullies,” the old Sherpa said, speaking about Maoist rebels. “And they didn’t get along with the Khampas.”

Gyatso disputes the claim, however, and insists that a struggling bottom line forced the hotel’s closure. “We have a friendly relationship with the Maoists,” Gyatso said. “Some of them stayed in the hotel. I know many old Tibetans think communists are the enemy, but we never had a problem with them.”

Gyatso did acknowledge, however, that Communist labor unions contributed to the hotel’s demise. The hotel initially employed only Tibetans, but pressure from unions spurred the hotel to ultimately employ a mix of Tibetans and Nepalese. At its height, the hotel had about 40 employees. But as business tapered in the 1990s and early 2000s, Gyatso said the unions tied his hands when he tried to streamline staff and cut down on expenses.

“The Unified Marxist-Leninist Party workers union gave us a lot of trouble,” he said. “They demanded a lot and basically put us out of business.”

The Lodrik Welfare Fund is an evolution of the Mustang resistance bureaucracy, which is now dedicated to welfare, not armed insurgency. While the hotel was operational, it generated revenue for the Lodrik Welfare Fund to finance schools and public works for Tibetan refugees around Pokhara and to provide benefits for Tibetan resistance veterans. Now only a thin slice of revenue from the building’s rent goes toward the NGO’s welfare projects. The majority of funding comes from foreign sponsors—many of whom are anonymous Americans.

The CIA did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it was still providing any support for the veterans of the Mustang resistance living around Pokhara. But Gyatso said there was no ongoing U.S. government support for the guerilla fighter veterans or their descendants.

“There’s no official U.S. support,” Gyatso said. “But of course the U.S. should help us. They used us to fight China for them and then they dropped us on the spot. They should do something for us.”

NO MORE BAD BLOOD

The CIA began training and arming Tibetan guerillas in 1957. Initially, the Tibetan resistance fighters, called the Chushi-Gangdruk, were based inside Tibet. But in the 1960s groups of fighters also set up bases in Nepal’s Mustang region, from which they conducted raids across the border into China.

The Mustang resistance, as the Nepal-based fighters came to be known, were supported by CIA funds until 1972, when President Richard Nixon normalized relations with China and the CIA’s Tibetan operation ended. The Mustang resistance continued without U.S. support until 1974, when Nepal, bowing to pressure from China, sent soldiers into the arid Himalayan region to root out the Tibetan guerillas.

The Hotel Mount Annapurna was the CIA’s olive branch to the Mustang fighters, attempting to give the former guerrillas (many of whom had no education or professional skills beyond soldiering) a chance to make a livelihood as they transitioned to life as refugees.

“After surrender, it took at least 15 years before the soldiers could finally reintegrate into normal life,” Gyatso said. “The CIA was good in the beginning, but they abandoned us.”

Today, resistance fighter veterans and their descendants still do not have Nepalese citizenship, and most do not have paperwork identifying them as refugees—making it impossible to travel abroad, get a driver’s license, open a bank account or start a business. They live in refugee camps around Pokhara and are largely dependent on welfare for their survival.
“Babies don’t even have birth certificates,” Gyatso said. “We just need a paper to identify ourselves so we can work.”

The Mustang resistance raids ultimately did little to seriously damage China’s occupation of Tibet, but the intelligence Tibetan fighters gathered was sometimes of great value to the United States. A raid on a Chinese convoy in 1961, for example, killed a Chinese regimental commander and provided the CIA with what it later referred to as the “bible” on Chinese military intelligence.

A faction of Mustang resistance fighters under the command of Baba Yeshi collaborated with Nepal in 1974 by giving up their compatriots’ positions, clearing the way for an operation that killed many Tibetan guerillas, including their CIA-trained commander, General Gyato Wangdu. Yeshi’s Tibetan collaborators went on to create prosperous carpet-making enterprises in Kathmandu. And unlike the descendants of the Mustang resistance fighters around Pokhara, the descendants of the Tibetan collaborators enjoy Nepalese citizenship, according to Gyatso.

Yet, Gyatso added, there is no more bad blood between the descendants of the Mustang resistance and those who betrayed them.
“There are no more divides between factions of the Mustang resistance,” Gyatso said. “We are all Tibetan. The history is there, yes. But we are all against the Chinese. Bad things happened, and His Holiness (the Dalai Lama) has forgiven them.”

TIBET – INDIA – US RELATIONS – THE QUEST FOR TIBET EQUILIBRIUM. US PRESIDENT HARRY TRUMAN WITH INDIAN PRIME MINISTER JAWAHARLAL NEHRU AT THE NATIONAL AIRPORT IN WASHINGTON DC, ON OCTOBER 11, 1949.

People’s Republic of China came into her existence on October 01, 1949. Red China openly declared to world her ‘Expansionist’ Policy and it immediately raised security concerns in Tibet, India, and the United States. Tibet – India – US relations began with Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru’s visit to Washington DC on October 11, 1949 to meet US President Harry Truman. Red China posed a direct threat to power balance in Southeast Asia. I would characterize Tibet – India – US relations as ‘The Quest for Tibet Equilibrium’. Tibet – India – United States remain united and have this common purpose for their historical relationship. The issue is not that of Middle Way or of meaningful autonomy for Tibetans. The issue is not that of Tibet’s Independence. It doesn’t matter if Tibet is part of China or not. Tibet, India, and the US view Communist China as “AGGRESSOR” nation in Tibet which endangered Power Balance in Southeast Asia. The issue is that of restoring Balance and Equilibrium in Tibet. Special Frontier Force is prepared to restore Balance and Equilibrium in Tibet by application of physical force to counteract Red China’s Force of Oppression in Tibet.

Why the Legacy of Tibet’s Cold War Freedom Fighters Still Matters

DHARAMSHALA, India—When Sonam Dorjee was a Buddhist monk at the Debung Monastery in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, he would not kill an insect. After all, that annoying fly buzzing in your ear could be the reincarnation of a beloved family member.

But when Chinese soldiers opened fire on the Tibetan refugees with whom Dorjee was fleeing across the Himalayas in 1959, the then-25-year-old monk picked up a rifle and fought back.
“It was a journey to become a different man,” Dorjee, now 81 years old, said during an interview at his home in the misty mountain village of McLeod Ganj, just outside Dharamshala.

“I had to develop a totally different mentality,” he said. “I lost my country and saw the Chinese kill many people in front of me. If you meet such a situation, it helps you to convert your mind. I had to do something for my country. There was no other choice.”

After Chinese soldiers began to shell Lhasa in 1959, Dorjee fled across the Himalayas with a group of monks and other refugees who were escorted by Chushi-Gangdruk guerilla fighters. When Chinese soldiers attacked Dorjee’s group, the fighting spirit of the Tibetan guerillas inspired the young monk. “If not for the Chushi-Gangdruk,” he said, “His Holiness and no other Tibetans would have escaped Tibet.”

“They saved Tibet,” he added. “I saw what they did, and I was thinking that I could take a weapon and I could fight for my country too.”

Six years later, a 31-year-old Dorjee decided to abandon his monk’s robes for good when he joined Establishment 22—a secret all-Tibetan unit in the Indian army created after China attacked India in the 1962 Sino-Indian war. For the former monk, becoming a soldier meant abandoning some of his most elemental philosophies and beliefs—including the prohibition on killing.

“It was very difficult to give up being a monk,” he said. “It was a totally different life. As a monk, we do puja and we pray. As a soldier we trained to kill people.”

The CIA initially provided training and equipment for Establishment 22, and Dorjee remembers the CIA instructors fondly. He said their support gave the Tibetan resistance movement a morale boost. “America trained us, and gave us food and weapons,” he said. “I have a deep appreciation and a great respect for America.”

Dorjee served in Establishment 22 for 10 years before he was selected for the Dalai Lama’s bodyguard, a post he held for 11 years. Establishment 22 never faced Chinese soldiers in combat, but saw action in operations against Pakistan, including the 1971 Indo-Pakistani war.

Establishment 22 is still active and draws recruits from Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal. A dispute over pensions has tempered Dharamshala’s support for the unit, but even today, the possibility of one day fighting the Chinese lures Tibetan recruits.

“When I joined the army, I wanted to kill Chinese,” Dorjee said. “All I wanted was to kill just one Chinese soldier. I was very angry.”
“It didn’t work out like that,” he continued. “I regretted not killing any Chinese. Now I don’t hate China, but I don’t regret the fighting. I tried my best. I have no anger left.”

STUCK IN THE MIDDLE

The predominant narrative of the Tibetan resistance has been the Dalai Lama’s push for nonviolence and the “middle way”—a policy dating back to the 1970s that does not call for full Tibetan independence but a status of “genuine autonomy,” in which Tibetans control internal matters and are able to preserve their culture and religion but relegate international affairs and defense to Beijing.

Yet, the Dalai Lama is only one part of the Tibetan resistance story. From the 1950s through the mid-1970s a CIA-backed Tibetan freedom fighter army called the Chushi-Gangdruk waged a bloody guerilla war against China from inside Tibet and bases in Nepal. And after the 1962 Sino-Indian war, thousands of Tibetan men signed up for Establishment 22 (which the CIA trained and supported with arms and supplies) for a chance to fight China.

The combined combat history of the Chushi-Gangdruk and Establishment 22 challenges the Tibetan nonviolent resistance narrative. And the legacy of Tibet’s freedom fighters continues to inspire generations of Tibetan refugees to retain their hope for freedom and to resist Chinese oppression off the battlefield. While most Tibetan refugees still support the Dalai Lama’s middle way approach, recent signs of wavering in China’s economy have sparked a debate within the refugee community about how Tibetans should react if China’s Communist Party collapses.

“The Chushi-Gangdruk legacy has inspired younger generations,” said Tenzin Nyinjey, researcher at the Tibetan Center for Human Rights in Dharamshala—home of the Tibetan government in exile.

“The hope for freedom hasn’t faded at all,” he added. “We’re going to see something really explosive within our lifetime.”

The debate orbits around whether the Tibetan government in exile should continue pushing for autonomy, as the Dalai Lama has advocated, or push for full-fledged independence, which Tibet’s freedom fighters fought for during the Cold War. And with the Dalai Lama’s 80th birthday this year, there is also quiet debate within the refugee community about how long support for the middle way will last after his death.

“We know armed resistance is impossible, the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] has to collapse or the system has to change,” Nyinjey said. “This is not the Cold War, no one is going to arm or train Tibetans to fight. But Tibetans are quite ready to declare independence if the Communist system collapses. We have the institutions of political democracy already built here in India.”
“Independence usually doesn’t require picking up a gun,” he added. “But when the time comes, young Tibetans will do what it takes.”

Many Tibetan refugees, however, still prefer the middle way approach over full independence. They base their support for the policy on a combination of pragmatism and their faith in the Dalai Lama.

“With Gorbachev, the USSR ended in an instant,” said Norbu Dorjee, 61, a business owner in Leh, the capital of India’s Himalayan Ladakh region. “China’s problems are good for us. We hope that China will become democratic, that the Communist party will collapse and we can go home.”

“But,” Dorjee added, “we are still only asking for internal autonomy, not total independence. We have to maintain faith in the path His Holiness has chosen for us.”

“I believe the middle way will last,” said Thupten Gyantso, 41, a Tibetan refugee living in Pokhara, Nepal. “The reality is that China is too powerful for us to win independence. And even if we become independent, we will still rely on China for many things.”

Opponents of the middle way claim the 40-year-old policy has achieved little for Tibetan refugees and that human rights inside Tibet have worsened in the intervening decades.
“So long as Tibet insists on only achieving autonomy, it will not be an international issue,” said Lhasang Tsering, 68, a Chushi-Gangdruk veteran who served in Nepal’s Mustang region in the 1970s. He now lives in Dharamshala and owns a bookshop called “Bookworm.”

“Unless the Dalai Lama makes freedom the ultimate goal, for peace and justice, other countries won’t help us,” Tsering said. “It might be too late for Tibet by the time China collapses.”
Some point to the recent Tibetan government in exile’s elections for prime minister as a bellwether for a renewed independence movement. The candidate who has arguably created the most media attention within the Tibetan refugee community is LukarJam—who has stirred controversy by openly challenging the Dalai Lama’s middle way policy and arguing for independence.

“It’s fashionable to talk about the middle way, but it kills the passion to act,” Jam said, according to the Associated Press. “I have separated the spiritual and political Dalai Lama and criticize only his political policies.”
“His popularity shows skepticism about the middle way,” Nyinjey said, referring to Jam. “There’s a movement happening that shows a fracturing of Tibetan opinion, and proponents of the middle way are being forced to defend their policies.”

TIPPING POINT?

Paralleling the middle way debate is a mounting resistance movement inside Tibet against Chinese rule—evidenced by protests in 2008 and a wave of self-immolations in Tibet that began in 2009. And with Beijing hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics, some speculate that there could be a repeat of the protests that swept across Tibet in advance of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.

During the 2008 protests, Tibetans sacked Chinese-owned businesses and attacked Han Chinese on the streets, underscoring simmering ethnic tensions inside China’s Tibet Autonomous Region.

“In 2008 this major uprising happened across Tibet,” said Sherab Woeser, visiting fellow at The Tibet Policy Institute, a think tank in Dharamshala. “No one expected it, and it was young people who led it. They want to have Tibetan textbooks in school and to be able to wave their flag and honor the Dalai Lama. Young people are expressing themselves in Tibet saying they want to be free.”

After the 2008 protests, Chinese authorities cracked down in the Tibet Autonomous Region. Surveillance increased, as did reports of arbitrary arrest and torture. Pictures of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan flag were outlawed, new travel restrictions were put in place and the borders with India and Nepal were sealed, practically stemming the flow of refugees out of Tibet.

Since 2009, 142 Tibetans have self-immolated inside China as a reaction to China’s crackdown. While the Tibetan self-immolators comprise all ages and spectrums of society, the average age of the self-immolators is 24, reflecting what some claim is increasing resistance against Chinese rule among Tibetan youth.

“The self-immolations are just a continuance of the Chushi-Gangdruk resistance,” Nyinjey said. “Nothing has changed. The occupation and the oppression have always been there. The same causes of the resistance are still there, but the form of resistance has changed.”

“Tibetans have seen so much death, pain and oppression, and that shows in the way they protest,” Woeser said.
Some also speculate that a renewed Tibetan independence movement could spark a chain reaction of secessionist movements in China’s Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang autonomous regions.

“Tibet can be the Tunisia, the trigger, for the breakup of China,” Nyinjey claimed, referencing the self-immolation of a street vendor in Tunisia in December 2010 that was a catalyst for the Arab Spring.
LEGACY

Despite the overwhelming odds against them, Tibet’s guerilla fighters fought fiercely, suffering heavy casualties as they faced Chinese artillery, tanks and bombers from horseback, armed with swords and World War I rifles.

“They had no knowledge of how to fight, they were just very patriotic and wanted to fight for their country,” said Tenpa Dhargyal, 37, general secretary of the Welfare Society of Central Dokham Chushi-Gangdruk, a New Delhi-based organization dedicated to caring for Chushi-Gangdruk veterans and their families.

Dhargyal’s grandfather was a Chushi-Gangdruk fighter who died fighting the Chinese. “Their courage came from their anger,” he said.

The Chushi-Gangdruk played a key role in establishing Tibet’s government in exile. In 1959, the Chushi-Gangdruk’s control over territory in southern Tibet created a protected corridor through which the Dalai Lama escaped to India. And after the Dalai Lama was safely in exile, the Chushi-Gangdruk subsequently protected the tens of thousands of refugees who fled across the Himalayas into India and Nepal.

In 1957, two years prior to the Dalai Lama’s escape, the CIA began paramilitary training for handpicked Chushi-Gangdruk fighters. The training took place at secret bases in Saipan; Camp Hale, Colorado; and Camp Peary, Virginia (at a facility known as the “farm”).

After their instruction, the Tibetan operatives parachuted into Chinese-occupied Tibet from CIA aircraft ranging from World War II era B-17s (which were painted all black) to C-130s. To create plausible deniability should an aircraft go down, the CIA initially used East European pilots recruited for covert missions over Soviet Ukraine. Air America (an aviation front for the CIA) later handled the Tibetan missions.

The Chushi-Gangdruk eventually set up camps in the remote Mustang region of Nepal, from which they launched cross-border raids into China.

The CIA supported the Chushi-Gangdruk with airdropped weapons, ammunition and supplies until 1972, when President Richard Nixon normalized relations with China and U.S. support for the Tibetan resistance was cut off. The Chushi-Gangdruk continued to operate from Nepal for several more years without U.S. backing, but achieved little.

“The U.S. treated it as a tactical move to harass the Communist block from behind, it was not a strategic decision to support Tibetan independence,” Tsering, the Chushi-Gangdruk veteran said.

“But it’s easy to point the finger at others for our failure,” he added. “We failed to capitalize on the CIA’s support to internationalize our cause and unite world opinion to support us.”

In 1974, after bowing to Chinese pressure, the Nepalese military rooted the Chushi-Gangdruk out of their mountain hideouts in Mustang, killing many (including their commander, General Gyato Wangdu, who had been trained by the CIA at Camp Hale, Colorado) in high-altitude gunfights. The Dalai Lama sent a taped message imploring the Mustang resistance to lay down their arms, spurring several fighters to commit suicide.

For some Tibetans, the history of China’s invasion of Tibet and the legacy of lives lost in the ensuing Tibetan resistance fuels a lingering distaste for submitting to Chinese rule—which they see the middle way as promoting.

“Even though they asked us to be friends with China, we don’t want it,” Dhargyal said. “We can’t make friends with them because they killed our grandparents. We don’t want to live under Chinese rule. We want our country back.”
KARMA
Chungdak Bonjutsang began to cry when he described how Chinese soldiers killed his mother in 1959.

Bonjutsang, now 61 years old, covered his eyes with his hands. His chest heaved a few times with deep breaths. He tried to fight through it and talk, but he choked up. After a silent moment, he wiped his eyes clear, looked up to the ceiling for an instant, and then continued.

Bonjutsang was only 6 years old when his mother, father, uncle and older brother crossed the Himalayas to escape Communist rule in Tibet. They were in a group of about 400, he said. Women, children and the elderly were kept in front, while the men and the Tibetan Chushi-Gangdruk guerilla fighters stayed at the rear to repel Chinese attacks. Their group was a part of the 80,000 Tibetans who flooded into India and Nepal in 1959 after the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) shelled protesters in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa.

Bonjutsang remembers the sounds of bullets ricocheting off the hard stones of the mountain when the Chinese attack came. Exposed on a high-altitude pass with nowhere to hide, the only options were to run or fight back.
Bonjutsang’s father tied the scared 6-year-old boy to one of the horses used to carry supplies so that he wouldn’t be lost in the confusion of the gunfight. And then his father and uncle joined the Chushi-Gangdruk guerillas in fighting back the Chinese soldiers.

During the attack, Bonjutsang’s mother was shot in the side. She died quickly. And with the Chinese in pursuit, there was no time to bury her. “We just left her on the ice, and then we ran away,” Bonjutsang said during an interview at the Sonamling Tibetan refugee colony in India’s Himalayan Ladakh region.

“I was very young then,” he said. “But as I grew older, the pain got worse. I can’t stop thinking about her lying dead on the ice. I see her at night when I go to sleep.”
Fifty-six years later, Bonjutsang’s pain and his anger over his mother’s murder have not faded. “China is still the enemy,” he said. He has never returned to Tibet, and admits that he may never be able to. Yet, his hope that Tibet will regain its independence has not faded—and that hope is sustained by his unshakeable faith in the Dalai Lama.

“We have great hope that we will be able to return the Dalai Lama to Tibet before he passes,” Bonjutsang said. “As long as His Holiness is alive we believe freedom is possible.”
A smile crept across Bonjutsang’s face. He added: “And, of course, we also hope His Holiness outlives the Communist Party in China.”

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – DOCTOR’S ORDER – COMPASSION

Posted on Updated on

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – DOCTOR’S ORDER – COMPASSION

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – DOCTOR’S ORDER – COMPASSION – DR BARRY KERZIN, DALAI LAMA’S PERSONAL PHYSICIAN.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s personal physician, Dr. Barry Kerzin who lives in India is prescribing use of Compassion in practice of Medicine. Compassion is an instinct that is evoked when a person witnesses pain and suffering in the lives of other living entities. Compassion provides Motivation or Drive to perform actions that will help to relieve pain experienced by a victim and provide uplift to such victim to overcome feelings of sorrow and misery. Compassion acts like a physical force for it helps the performer of Compassionate action. While acting under the influence of Compassion, the performer acts without experiencing personal hardship or tiredness. Compassion provides additional energy with which performer of Compassionate actions overcomes physical barriers that may limit physical capacity in ordinary circumstances.

In Tibet, I witness action of two opposing forces; 1. Physical Force used by Red China to oppress Tibetans, and 2. Resistance Force used by Tibetans to counteract Oppression. To have Balance and Equilibrium in Tibet, we need both interacting forces to be of same power. I witness pain, suffering, and misery in the lives of Tibetan people as their power of Resistance is not equal to Force of Oppression applied by Red China. This tragic situation in Tibet evokes instinct of Compassion directing me to take action to find Balance and Equilibrium in Tibet. I am seeking Force of Compassion to physically uplift Red Army from Tibet. When this brutalizing force is evicted from Tibet, there will be Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in Tibet as Balance and Equilibrium will be restored.

Dalai Lama’s American doctor wants more compassion in medicine

October 27, 2015 at 6:35 PM EDT

Dalai Lama’s doctor wants more compassion in medicine. Before he was a personal physician to the Dalai Lama, Dr. Barry Kerzin never imagined that a professional trip to Tibet would lead him down a decades-long path studying Buddhism and meditation. Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro talks to Kerzin in India about his feeling that compassion and empathy are essential to medical training. 2015-10-27

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/20151027_dalailama.mp3

 

TRANSCRIPT

JUDY WOODRUFF: But, first, the Dalai Lama was supposed to arrive in the U.S. yesterday. He didn’t, because doctors at the Mayo Clinic advised him to rest.
But advice flows both ways in the relationship between the Buddhist leader and his personal physician.

Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro reports on how the Dalai Lama inspired a California native to move halfway across the world and bring compassion back into a medical care system dominated by technology.

The report is part of Fred’s ongoing series Agents for Change.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Sixty-eight-year-old California native Barry Kerzin began his career as a professor of family medicine at the University of Washington. He never dreamed it would lead to a pro bono house calls thousands of miles away in Tibetan.

DR. BARRY KERZIN, Buddhist Scholar: I keep pinching myself, Fred. I don’t know.
(LAUGHTER)

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: He first arrived here after hearing that the Dalai Lama had wanted a Western physician to train traditional Tibetan doctors in modern research methods.

DR. BARRY KERZIN, Buddhist Scholar: We did a research study. And we used that pedagogically to train the local Tibetan medicine doctors how to do the research.
And then I got more involved with Buddhism. I had already been very interested. I got more involved with meditation and study. And I ended up extending my stay. And that’s happened again and again and here I am 27 years.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: He came to India from a life punctuated by pain and loss, at 11, a near fatal brain abscess that required extensive surgery and left a permanent lump on his skull. His mother died young, and a few years later so did his wife, only in her mid-30s, both from cancer.
Buddhism became a sanctuary under the tutelage of the Dalai Lama, who told him to stay connected to the world.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: He always encouraged me to keep my credentials and to continue practicing medicine. Don’t just do the wisdom. Also do the love and the compassion. In fact, do them 50/50. Those were his words.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Scholarship in Buddhism led to his ordination as a monk, while meditation has been a path to inner peace and happiness. And that’s translated into empathy, he said.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: It’s slowly moved me along to be more compassionate, to be less selfish.
I don’t get angry very much anymore. I used to be highly competitive. I’m still somewhat competitive, but it’s more now personal, not at the expense of somebody else. I think it’s a combination of meditation and also, as His Holiness calls, emotional hygiene.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Kerzin, who now serves as a personal physician to the Dalai Lama, has taken the spiritual leader’s gospel of emotional hygiene and compassion to medical practitioners around the world.
DALAI LAMA (through interpreter): He is my messenger. Go to Japan, go to Mongolia.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: And full circle to America.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: It’s lovely to be at Stanford.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: A few years ago, a prestigious lecture at a top U.S. medical school wouldn’t have been given by a man who left American medicine and many stunned colleagues for a very different world, where he doesn’t own a house, car or refrigerator.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: I think initially they thought I went off the deep end. What are you doing living in India? Come on. You know, how can you stay healthy? Why don’t you come back? And you could have a very good life. You could have a very good academic life in medicine. You could have a very comfortable economic life. It’s ridiculous what you’re doing.
So let’s meditate, OK?

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: But on this day, they were listening, even meditating, with him. Kerzin says meditation helps one focus on the now, the present. You tune out the past and all your regrets, tune out planning and worry about the future. It’s taken years, he says, but gotten results, scientifically measured results.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: This is in Madison, the University of Wisconsin, and they’re researching my brain.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Kerzin has been part of a series of studies into the impact of meditation on the brain.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: What they found were changes in the prefrontal cortex. This area is called the executive function area, the PFC, and it helps with things like planning, reasoning, imagination, empathy, to feel as — like another person is feeling. So these areas were enhanced, both anatomically and functionally, in long-term meditators.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Kerzin’s host at Stanford said there’s an epidemic of dissatisfaction among American doctors today, which likely makes them more receptive to a message like Kerzin’s.

DR. ABRAHAM VERGHESE, Stanford School of Medicine: Fifty percent of them, they say in some studies, are unhappy. And that tells you this is not an individual problem. This is a systemic problem.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Dr. Abraham Verghese, well-known author and professor at Stanford, says technology, for all its benefits, leaves doctors little time for the compassion that drew most of them to medicine.

DR. ABRAHAM VERGHESE: There was a chilling paper from the “Journal of Emergency Medicine” titled “4,000 Clicks,” suggesting that an emergency medicine physician does 4,000 clicks a day and spends the great majority of their time on the computer, very little percentage of the time actually with patients, and similar studies that are coming out suggesting the same about residents and medical students and physicians in other specialties.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Kerzin says he wants to make compassion as integral to medical education as physiology or biochemistry, more partnerships between scientists and Buddhist scholars, a reconciliation of very different perspectives on life that he said he’s made internally.

DR. BARRY KERZIN: I used to say I wear two hats. So, sometimes, this is the medical hat, this is the Buddhist hat. But I don’t say that any more.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Today, he says he wears one scientist monk hat.

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – RESISTANCE IS A DAILY ROUTINE
TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – RESISTANCE IS DAILY ROUTINE

Tibet’s awareness of military occupation generates a natural response called ‘RESISTANCE’. However, the strategy of Resistance demands recognition of external realities. Tibet’s Enemy is using overwhelming physical force to suppress any sign of Resistance. Tibet needs to use the tactic called Patience and Perseverance while Enemy wears herself out pursuing a course of self-destruction. I ask Tibet to practice Resistance as a Daily Routine. Red China’s Policy of Subjugation, and Tibet’s response of Resistance when practiced with Patience and Perseverance will maintain balance and equilibrium in the lives of Tibetans who may not have ability to confront Occupation using physical force. Tibet need to stay calm and unperturbed for Beijing is Doomed.

The Dalai Lama’s Daily Routine and Information Diet

“To understand the Dalai Lama … perhaps it’s most useful to see him as a doctor of the soul.”

By Maria Popova

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – RESISTANCE IS DAILY ROUTINE

I think a great deal about the difference between routine and ritual as a special case of our more general and generally trying quest for balance — ripped asunder by the contrary longings for control and whimsy, we routinize daily life in order to make its inherent chaos more manageable, then ritualize it in order to imbue its mundanity with magic, which by definition violates the predictable laws of the universe. I suspect that our voracious appetite for the daily routines of cultural icons is fueled by a deep yearning to glean some insight on and practical help with this impossible balancing act, from people who seem to have mastered it well enough to lead happy, productive, creatively fruitful, and altogether remarkable lives.
Perhaps the most unexpected yet brilliant master of this elusive modern equilibrium is the Dalai Lama.

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – RESISTANCE IS DAILY ROUTINE.The Dalai Lama by Manuel Bauer

In the altogether magnificent The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama(public library), writer Pico Iyer — who has known the beloved spiritual leader since adolescence and, by the time he began writing this book, had visited him in his exile home for nearly thirty years — describes how the Dalai Lama begins each day:

[By] nine a.m. … the Dalai Lama himself had already been up for more than five hours, awakening, as he always does, at three-thirty a.m., to spend his first four hours of the day meditating on the roots of compassion and what he can do for his people, the “Chinese brothers and sisters” who are holding his people hostage, and the rest of us, while also preparing himself for his death.

Compressed into this humble and humbling morning routine is the entire Buddhist belief that life is a “joyful participation in a world of sorrows.” This daily rite of body and spirit is the building block of the Dalai Lama’s quiet and steadfast mission to, as Iyer elegantly puts it, “explore the world closely, so as to make out its laws, and then to see what can and cannot be done within those laws.” He writes:

To understand the Dalai Lama … especially if (as in my case) you come from some other tradition, perhaps it’s most useful to see him as a doctor of the soul.

As someone deeply invested in the crucial difference between information and wisdom, I was particularly fascinated by the Dalai Lama’s information diet — that is, what daily facts he chooses to fuse with ancient wisdom in his dedication to unraveling the nature of reality and making use of it in fortifying the soul. Iyer writes:

As a longtime student of real life, ruler of his people before the age of five, he listens every morning to the Voice of America, to the BBC East Asian broadcast, to the BBC World Service — even while meditating — and devours Time and Newsweek and many other news sources (I think of how the Buddha is often depicted with one hand touching the earth, in what Buddhists call the “witnessing the earth” gesture).

And yet the Dalai Lama approaches his information diet like he does his meditation — as a deliberate practice. In that sense, “meaning diet” is far more accurate a term, for he is remarkably deliberate about which aspects of the Information Age to fold into his meaning-making mission and which to sidestep. He chooses, for instance, to avoid one of the most perilous byproducts of our era, which Susan Sontag presaged in 1977 in her famous admonition against “aesthetic consumerism.” Iyer writes:

In the Age of the Image, when screens are so much our rulers, anyone who wishes to grab our attention — and to hold it — does so by converting himself into a “human-interest story,” translating his life into a kind of fable…. Those who long to be entrusted with real consequences in our lives acquire that power increasingly by presenting themselves as fairy tales.

The Dalai Lama, by nature and training, is in the odd position of trying to do the opposite: he comes to us to tell us that he is real, as real as his country, bleeding and oppressed, and that he lives in a world far more complex than a two-year-old’s cries of “Good Tibetans, bad Chinese” (the Dalai Lama would more likely say, “Potentially good Tibetans, potentially good Chinese”).

TIBET EQUILIBRIUM – RESISTANCE IS DAILY ROUTINE.The Dalai Lama by Manuel Bauer

At the heart of this message is a larger testament to the most essential characteristic of reality — something Alan Watts, who began popularizing Eastern philosophy in the West when the Dalai Lama was still a teenager, captured memorably when he wrote: “Life and Reality are not things you can have for yourself unless you accord them to all others.”

Indeed, contacting this interconnectedness of all beings and all lives is the very impetus for the Dalai Lama’s morning routine and his information diet — a beautiful assurance that beneath our obsession with routine and ritual lies a deeper, more expansive longing for meaning, for orienting ourselves in this vibrating universe of interconnectedness that we call reality.

Iyer articulates this elegantly:

Imagine, for a moment, that you are a body (not difficult to do, since in part that is what you are). You have eyes, ears, legs, hands, and, if you are lucky, all of them are in good working order. You never, if you are sane, think of your finger as an independent entity (though you may occasionally say, “My toe seems to have a mind of its own”). You are never, in your right mind, moved to hit your own foot, let alone sever it; the only loser in such an exercise would be yourself.
[…]
This is all simplistic to the point of self-evidence. But when the Buddhist speaks of “interdependence” (the central Buddhist concept of shunyata, often rendered as “emptiness,” the Dalai Lama has translated as “empty of independent identity”), all he is really saying is that we are all a part of a single body, and to think of “I” and “you,” of the right hand’s interests being different from the left’s, makes no sense at all. It’s crazy to impede your neighbor, because he is as intrinsic to your welfare as your thumb is. It’s almost absurd to say you wish to get ahead of your colleague — it’s like your right toe saying it longs to be ahead of the left.
[…]
Perhaps it’s not surprising, then, that the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is famous for his laughter, the sudden eruption of almost helpless giggles or a high-pitched shaking of the body. Seen from the vantage point of one who meditates several hours a day, traveling to the place where everything is connected, much of our fascination with surface or with division seems truly hilarious… Talking about friends and enemies is a little like holding on to this hair on your arm and claiming it as a friend, because you see it daily, and calling the hair on your back an enemy, because you never see it at all. Talking of how you are a Buddhist and therefore opposed to the Judeo-Christian teaching is like solemnly asserting that your right nostril is the source of everything good, and your left nostril a place of evil. The doctrine of “universal responsibility” is not only universal but obvious: it’s like saying that every part of us longs for our legs, our eyes, our lungs to be healthy. If one part suffers, we all do.

Suddenly, the Dalai Lama’s morning routine and his information diet are revealed in a whole new light of meaning — they are a form of self-empowerment in the journey toward shedding self-centeredness. (Lest we forget, as another great Buddhist teacher has put it, “you first need to have an ego in order to be aware that it doesn’t exist.”)

Iyer writes:

Buddhists do not (or need not) seek solutions from outside themselves, but merely awakening within; the minute we come to see that our destinies or well-being are all mutually dependent, they say, the rest naturally follows (meditation sometimes seems the way we come to this perception, reasoning the way we consolidate it). If you believe this, human life offers you many more belly laughs daily, as the Dalai Lama exemplifies.

And there, with a good-humored smirk, Iyer reminds us that his perspective isn’t perched on a holier-than-thou branch in the tree of life but grounded in his reality as a Westerner and a writer, and thus a creature of ego trying to learn the very lesson he is channeling:

Why despair, indeed, when you can change the world at any moment by choosing to see that the person who gave your last book a bad review is as intrinsic to your well-being as your thumb is?

The Open Road is an illuminating read in its totality, propelled by Iyer’s deeply pleasurable prose. Complement it with Iyer on what Leonard Cohen knows about the art of stillness and his superb On Being conversation with Krista Tippett, in which he recounts the experience of shadowing the Dalai Lama in order to capture his inner light:
