DESTROYS GIANT BUDDHIST STATUE IN TIBET
Published by the Canada Tibet Committee
In a demonstration of tightening
controls over religious freedom in Tibet, the Chinese People's Armed
Police (PAP) destroyed a 30-foot high statue of the Buddhist figure
of Guru Rinpoche, or Padmasambhava in Samye Monastery, the oldest
monastery in Tibet.
Guru Rinpoche is worshipped by Tibetan
and Chinese Buddhists alike as the founder of Buddhism in Tibet in
the 8th century.
Chinese authorities claim that the
statue, which was constructed using funds from two Chinese Buddhists,
violated regulations passed in January 2007 stating that
“organizations and individuals not belonging to religious
organizations or places of religious activity may not erect or
construct large-scale outdoor religious statues or mani lhakhang
(prayer wheel temple).”
After the Chinese occupation of Tibet
in 1949, over 6.000 monasteries, nunneries, and temples were looted
of precious religious artefacts or destroyed entirely.
Over 110.000 religious leaders
(including monks, nuns, and others) were tortured and put to death;
an additional 250.000 were forcibly dis robed.
Thousands of refugees continue to flee
Tibet each year in search of religious freedom they can no longer
enjoy in their own country.
If we trust in the Law of Karma,
Reincarnation can provide some answers into the question if exists
justice in the world.
We have to look deeper in the past, to
find out if, presently, the law of cause-effect is in action.
This as to do with individuals, as well
as groups because conflicts, wars, genocide, sufferings, have a lot
to do with “group-karma”.
Souls reincarnate in groups to learn
some spiritual lessons, or like the case of the Tibetan, to carry out
an higher spiritual purpose for humanity.
The Dalai Lama pointed out that the
Chinese invasion of Tibet and the destruction of Tibetan monasteries
caused the spread of the Buddhists monks to the West and its growing
This state of things would not have
happened if all the monks had stayed in Tibet.
The Dalai Lama pointed out in an
interview with The New York Times, that the present invasion from
China has to do with hidden causes stretching back into the previous
lives of both countries.
Has been said that when a country hates
another, chances are that their people will reincarnate into the
nation which is the object of hate.
I herd, in a meeting of spiritual
sciences in Canada, lately, that the needs of the Young Chinese
people, are suddenly changing.
Seems that they are searching and
looking for spiritual direction.
Their minds and hearts are going in the
direction of the “Tibetan path.”
So, not only the western countries, but
the young Chinese too, will benefit from this “group karma'. Karma
which links China and Tibet. Karma which the Tibetans carry out with
a spiritual purpose.
May the young Chinese -people be strong
enough, one day, to change the Tibetan suffering!
