Tibet Murdered by China

"If there were something civilised in man, every nation would have stood against the invasion of Tibet by China. It is the invasion of matter against consciousness. It is invasion of materialism against spiritual heights"

Osho

"In the past decade, China has waged a quiet but ruthless war on Tibetan society."

Joshua Kurlantzick, The End Of Tibet

"We are facing our own extinction"

HHS Dali Lama

    Tibet has been wiped off the map, literally. A new UNICEF map from the UN shows, in its place, a grey blob named... China. Tibet’s disappearance remains a little-known and understood tragedy of immense proportions. Shame on the UN, shame on the media, shame on the world.

    What has happened to Tibet in the last few decades is no less than the crime of the ages – the defeat and disappearance of a society dedicated to enlightenment and spiritual evolution at the hands of ruthless, materialist, totalitarian Chinese invaders.

   In western societies, where enlightenment is neither well understood nor often encountered in its monotheistic, belief-oriented, religions, it is difficult for most to understand the real significance and meaning of this calamity. It takes an enlightened master, like Osho, to fully understand the many dimensions of this tragic event and help us unenlightened beings to be aware of the treasure and heritage that is now nearly lost in Tibet.

   As Osho related in 1988, "Tibet should be left as an experimental lab for man's inner search. But not a single nation in the world has raised its voice against this ugly attack on Tibet."

   Indeed. No democrat or Republican leader has either the brains or the balls to do anything about this tragedy. Clinton and Bush, doing the ruling elite’s bidding, have fed us into a forced "free trade" regime with China – one in which we, and other First World nations, have lost our ability to use tariffs adjustments to tame a ruthless China, and are forced to compete with the greater slave. Instead, we are now "engaged" and abjectly dependent upon this fascist beast for so many or our essentials and for the support of our currency and fiscal recklessness. What a sick situation.

    For several decades now, we have watched as all manner of atrocities have been visited upon the peaceful Tibetan people, as Joshua Kurlantzick recently related in his excellent Rolling Stone Article, The End Of Tibet.

    I can do no better here than to include the full extent of Osho’s comments on the meaning of Tibet to mankind. Take heed:


   "
Unfortunately, Tibet has fallen into a darkness. Its monasteries have been closed, its seekers of truth have been forced to work in labour camps. The only country in the world which was working -- a one-pointed genius, all its intelligence in the search of one's own interior and its treasures has been stopped by the communist invasion of Tibet.

   And it is such an ugly world that nobody has objected to it. On the contrary, because China is big and powerful, even countries which are more powerful than China can ever be, like America, have accepted that Tibet belongs to China. That is sheer nonsense -- just because China is powerful and everybody wants China to be on its side. Neither have the Soviets denied the claim of China aside -- even India has not objected. It was such a beautiful experiment, and Tibet had no weapons to fight, they had no army to fight; they had never thought about it. Their whole thing was an introvert pilgrimage.

  Nowhere has such concentrated effort been made to discover man's being. Every family in Tibet used to give their eldest son to some monastery where he was to meditate and grow closer to awakening. It was a joy to every family that at least one of them was wholeheartedly, twenty-four hours a day, working on the inner being. They were also working but they could not give all their time; they had to create food and clothes and shelter, an in Tibet it is a difficult matter. The climate is not very helpful; to live in Tibet is a tremendous trouble. But still every family used to give their first-born child to the monastery.

   There were hundreds of monasteries… and these monasteries should not be compared with any Catholic monasteries. These monasteries have no comparison in the whole world. These monasteries were concerned only with one thing -- to make you aware of yourself.

   Thousands of devices have been created down the centuries so that your lotus can blossom and you can find your ultimate treasure, the diamond. These are just symbolic words, but the destruction of Tibet should be known in history, particularly man becomes a little more aware and humanity a little more humane… This is the greatest calamity of the twentieth century that Tibet has fallen into the hands of materials who don't believe that you have anything inside you. They believe that you are only matter and your consciousness is only a by-product of matter. And all this is simply without any experience of the inner -- just logical, rational philosophising.

   Not a single communist in the world has meditated, but it is strange -- they all deny the inner. Nobody thinks about how the outer can exist if there is no inner. They exist together, they are inseparable. And the outer is only a protection for the inner, because the inner is very delicate and soft. But the outer is accepted and the inner is denied. And even if sometimes it is accepted, the world is dominated by such dirty politicians that they use even the inner experiences for ugly ends.

   Just the other day, I came to know that America is now training its soldiers in meditation so that they can fight without any nervous breakdown, without going mad, without feeling any fear so they can lie down in their ditches silently, calm and cool and collected. No meditator nay have ever thought that meditation can also be used for fighting wars, but in the hands of politicians everything becomes ugly -- even meditation. Now the army camps in America are teaching meditation so that their soldiers can be more calm and quiet while killing people. But I want to warn America: you are playing with fire. You don't understand exactly what meditation will do. Your soldiers will become so calm and quiet that they will throw away their weapons and they will simply refuse to kill. A meditator cannot kill; a meditator cannot be destructive. So they are going to be surprised one day that their soldiers are no longer interested in fighting. War, violence, murder, massacre of millions of people -- this is not possible if a man knows something of meditation. Then he knows the other whom he is killing. He is his brother. They all belong to the same oceanic existence.
