Every afternoon I volunteer 1h doing English conversation in a charity that supports the Tibetan community; I've been going for a couple of weeks now and heard many stories and met the sweetest people, mainly Tibetans and Ladakhi. Today I had a new gentleman in my group, with the same gentle smile, shyness and attitude all the Tibetans and Ladakhi have, and when I've asked him how long he had lived in Dharamsala, he replied to me that he had been here only for a few months. I naively asked him how he travelled from Tibet to India, and his answer caught me by surprise...he told me WALKING.... Then he quickly corrected himself, telling me they walked through the Himalayas from Tibet to Nepal, and from Nepal to India on a bus.....and then the penny dropped. Stupid me. I didn't think this was still happening. It took 21 days...21 days walking through the biggest mountains of the world, 19 of them plus a guide. When they got to the border was full armed Chinese police, but I do not know how they managed to make it into Nepal. They have no passport, that's why they are escaping this way. Chinese government doesn't give Tibetans passports. When I asked him if it has been scary, with the same gentle attitude but very, very big eyes, he replied he couldn't ever imagine how scary it was going to be...he added that a few times he went to the guide asking if he was sure that he knew the way, as the path they took was so incredibly dangerous he couldn't believe it. And now he's a refugee, they all are. While my very limited western mind is trying to figure all this out, I turn to my Tibetan Monk friend and I asked him "did you come like this too??!" He answered me "Yes, of course, 18 years ago" I obviously knew the situation is difficult and that Tibet is under a terrible pressure and occupation, but I did not realized that Tibetans are still, to this day, crossing the borders fleeing their home walking through the Himalayas. Walking.Through.The.Himalayas. (Continues in comment!)

A Kora is a pilgrimage walk around Tibet's most sacred mountain, Mount Kailash, said to be the home of Lord Shiva. It is a very sacred and spiritual walk not only for Tibetans but for Hindus and Buddhists alike. The Kora takes you on a trek around the mountain. Most Tibetans complete the circle in one single day, whereas foreigners spend three days surrounding the mountain. If one goes around it 108 times it is said to cleanse the sins of a lifetime. It is common to find pilgrims doing prostrations around the mountain, first holding their hands up above their heads, then close to their faces and their chests, kneeling on the floor and finally lying flat on the ground, all the time whilst reciting sacred mantras. Women and men wear knee supports and wooden clasps on their hands so as to not hurt themselves in excess. It is a truly spiritual experience to walk behind and in front these very religious people, allowing the sacredness and solemnity of it all envelop you. Here, even the most skeptical person will feel God. 😊

Thank you 🙏 HH. Karmapa Kheno for bringing us together to witness and to remind us about our rich and sophisticated Tibetan art and culture . It means a lot to our future .Our great Tibetan Opera, monks, nuns and children chanting ,from our songs to our folk dances and even performances by some Chinese actor and singer singing Tibetan mantras ; constantly reminds us to be forgiving, compassionate, loving ,caring and to embrace peace after all .For Tibetans it’s a major struggle to keep our art and culture intact, as it’s being diluted by forced cultural assimilation in Tibet and by different other natural circumstances elsewhere . So putting together a cultural program and peace prayer ceremony like this is so important . Thank you!.. #tibet #tibetanculture #tibetanbuddhism #tibetanpeople #peace #compassion #forgiveness #formyparents❤ #thankyou #formypeople #prayers #karmapa #blessed #kagyumonlam2018 #freedom #struggle #tibetansarethecoolest #tibet #tibetanculture #formyparents❤ #tibetansarethecoolest #prayers #freedom #blessed #thankyou #compassion #struggle #forgiveness #karmapa #peace #tibetanbuddhism #tibetanpeople #formypeople #kagyumonlam2018

TIBET: PART 2: The Wheel of Dharma Spins. Tibetan Buddhism has been changed since the "Cultural Revolution" that accompanied Chinese authority to Tibet. The number of monks has been cut down and lives lost in silent protest. Yet still today, in culture and practice, people keep the wheel of Dharma, that the Buddha set in motion, spinning. We cannot say, from our short time in this land, any conclusions. We can only admire the fortitude of Buddhists in Tibet, who despite active repression, remain dedicated to a life of nonviolence, contemplation and Dharma.
