from movies like Kundun and Seven Years in Tibet (although they are not entirely representative of Tibet's long and rich history), one would hardly disagree that indigenous Tibetan culture is something worth preserving.
but sadly, under further Chinese oppression, it could be all lost within 15 years.
Ya, I just came back from tibet, and as long as any tibetan high lama plan to meet oversea visitors, they will be "accompanied" by police all the way. I've also heard from long term practioner that some "monks" in those temple are actually from the government, to "monitor" all activities that takes place within the monastry...How much worse can this get for a country that proclaims "religion freedom" in today's society.:thumbsd:
