short contribution to the rescue and just cause of Tibet

Someone has made unavaible from my “Tibet Child-project  of the Dalai Lama” donation page a youtube-video on Tibet. Because of this I now am going to increase the numbers of videos on Tibet, presented in my blog.

The following playlists picked from youtube I thought especially useful for beginners in this research-topic like myself. I may drew attention especially to the second video-series under the title “Eurasia and Buddhism”, which indeed is giving some sort of “historical lecture” on topics quite a lot of people may not have heard about before.

Most people may wonder additionally, that we have until approximatly 1300 AC or so SOME traces of Buddhism especially in European history of literature, which European scholars and writers were surprised, that between CHRISTIAN New Testament and Buddhist books are more than a few “convergences” and “parallels”, leading some folks to the somewhat strange at first  idea, that Jesus Christ might have got some sort or other of “Buddhist education”, which question  should be reserved for further study and evaluation!

(To say the least: If we think over the possibility, that Jesus Christ might have had some connections to tho old school of prophets and solitary monks in the tradition of ELIAS of Old Testament at Mount Karmel and even at Mount Horeb on Sinai, we perhaps may stumble upon the fact, that a retreat life in some sort of seclusion from “outer world influences” may show some COMMON CHARACTERISTICS shared in great SIMILARITY all over this planet … and, may be, on the Moon?!)

We may say, that some sort of “Buddhist fashion” among Europeans just startet – at least – with Alexander the Great meeting King Menandros, but not engaging into diplomatics to prepare war, but starting a PHILOSOPHICAL “argument”, which until today and even through Christian times was known under the title of “Questions of the King Milinda”, whicha re connected somehow to the literary complex of  socalled “biographies of Alexander”, called in Germany “Alexander Roman(s)”.

Otherwise it seems that some people brought forward the THESIS of some TIBETAN INFLUENCE in PHARAONIC EGYPT, for such purpose especially interpreting the face of the gold-mask of Tut-Anch-Amen as “somehwhat Asiatic”.

Reluctantly little bit I may add from discussions around the findings and theories on the “Tripillia”-/Trypolje-culture near Kiew/Ukrainia, where they TRY to link back to the SUMERIAN TERM “Aratta” of some unknown and/or doubtful GEOGRAPHICAL meaning (one proposal for instance: Aratta = Northern Indus-Valley and/or “land of godess Inannna/ Ishtar”), such suddenly tracing back to 20.000 years before us and even before “the great flood” (!!). It is in this NEW “Aratta-Ukrainia-discussions”, that we find trials, to link back “somehow”  KELTS to “Tripillia-Culture” and even HYPOTHETISIZING Tripillia/Kiew as SPOT OF ORIGIN for the wanderings of the people today known as TIBETANS! (We may for instance ask, what the REASON may be, that Ukrainian and TIBETAN FOLKLORE-dress show some STRANGE INDEED “similarities”, which for instance may be CAUSED by VERY SIMILAR “technology for to produce textiles”.

The audience perhaps may react sceptical at first meeting lots of PHOTOGRAPHS with FACES of LIVING – claimed – Tibetan Yoga Masters in the attached video series on “Tibetan Yoga Masters”, part 1-3. My proposal for “intended use” may be taken from the OLD Christian practise, to have PICTURES of their SAINTS, so to say, to open in needful cases a “virtual conversation” with them. It`s the same as in any company and business: Don’t ask the secretary, if you can adress the boss himself or herself!

In the end I hope to have produced a USEFUL starting point for LEARNING, to get  those grey matter working, that it may not get  hungry for “pics never seen” and “thoughts never tried before” –  or – beware God! – turning to boredom!

Otherwise among learned people must not be repeated, that the presentday “communism” in China is an IMPORT from abroad and NOT “genuin Chinese”, that it even from the view of Asian old traditions may be considered al little bit primitive and TOO primitive, which character hopefully will shorten the time of sufferings to all those, which the “communist regimen” cannot bear, probably because out of FEAR, that the “philosophical and spiritual”  shortcomings of communism may be reaveald to the public eye and thus the time approaching, when the “turning waters of history” will lead the Chinese people itself, to overthrow this outdated typ of dictatorship of communist mass-murderers.  So long Chinese pressure on especially Tibet will only cause,  that Tibetan refugees will spread the word of Buddhism ALL OVER THE WORLD – and – who knows – even in China, the borders of which in the more Western parts of EURASIA has been reached by a strange REVIVAL of Buddhism  starting from 1990 on  from Kirgistan to the several Mongolias, to the old people of ALTAI mountains  and so on!

So that we do not miss the HARD FACTS behind today Tibetan sufferings, I may recollect some historical figures, which are mainly an ACCUSATION on SEVERE CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY by the present COMMUNIST – and little bit “un-enlightened” –  Chinese government:

  • – 1945 to present day 2019: more than 1 Million Tibetans out of estimated population of 6 Million total lost their life, which simply is in range of GENOCID;
  • – 1945 to present day 2019: socalled “3 waves” of some sort of “EXODUS” by native Tibetans flewing  their homelands, 1959, 1980, and present 2019, numbering to 120.000 Tibetans resettled in India and a socalled “dark number”, which even escaped modern statistics, not counting Tibetans the flew to Ladakh, Buthan and Nepal;
  • 1980 to present Tibet was OPENED by the COMMUNIST Chinese Government, causing heavy embarresment to Tibetan mountain environment by EXHAUSTIVE MINING and SEARCH for MINERALS and ORES and by new plans to make Tibet a settlement-aerea for 10 Million Han-Chinese people, which of course will have LOTS of “health problems”, because they cannot adjust to the VERY HARSH environmental conditions of Tibet, not to speak of heavy consequences for agriculture and soil in Tibet.

Just by accident I stumble in youtube on the views of wellknown German journalist Peter Scholl-Latour reporting from a personal visit after 1980 to Tibet some CHINESE COUNTER-ARGUMENTS telling something similar to: Yes, given in, Lhasa today has 40.000 Tibetan and 60.000 Chinese inhabitatants . BUT, other things are just fine, as for instance electricity (and canalization?) for everybody, as for instance no feudal serfdom (adelige Leibeigenschaft) near to some sort or other of “slavery”, as for instance no “stoneage backwardness” of everyday-life.  If someone is a trained interpreter, between the lines perhaps could be read, that, whatever the occupation-force will improve and do good, it is inevitable that the occupied at the receiving end of foreign rule seemingly ALWAYS are  COMPLAINING … The strange thing however for me is, that I do not quite understand, WHY the Tibetans are not asked, what THEY think would be GOOD for the improvement and “modernization” of their country … Perhaps too much easy? For instance: Tibetans perhaps would prefer QUITE OTHER TYPE of schooling, even going as far, as – at least to some extend – considering the European-type of school SUPERFLUENT …??? And certainly lots of Tibetan Lamas outside of retreat and reclusion without need for Chinese advise,  are using COMPUTERS like everybody else in these modern times???

In these modern times, where people are misled willingly by quite a lot of sophisticated modern distractions, which make it a difficult task,  to make a content life from simple conditions, I may – considering the special mental conditions of “poor rich Europe”, which are my own conditions! – start with a portrait of a “non-lamaistic Lama”, who took the books of the “life of Milarepa” (“1000 poems”), as very similar Europeans of former centuries took their books with the  “Life of the Saints”, and after an initial shock by a “Guru” really could manage, to become inspired by the STRANGE changings and hardships of Milarepa and thus “turning a neurotic and even criminal mind” to more unbiassed use for the “common good”! I may guess: The least, what we may learn from this unshiny outer appearence of a Lama, might be, to DEEPLY MISTRUST ALL offers of socalled “enlightenment” – IF CONNECTED WITH MONEY, trying to pervert  “ANY spiritual development and growth” into some sort of BUSINESS. You see, there is nothing like “enlightenment”, there is no “teacher” – EXEPT that LIFE and HARDSHIPS and OBSTACLES are calmly waiting, that we, which is me and you, eventually may take them GRATEFULLY – to just GIVE NOT UP and START ALL OVER AGAIN, if spirits have beccome somewhat flickery and outlooks little bit “groomly”. Tell you what: Sometimes I really have the suspicion, that the ADULT APPROACH to life with NEUROSIS and PSYCHOSIS lingering all around in the surrounding neighbourhood – in essence may be little more than just “disturbences in digestion” and “changings in the hormons” – that is: nothing that anybody really should become concerned about!
