Cultivating Compassion

“Cultivating compassion is not a religious practice focused on ensuring we go to heaven or a good future life. It’s about living a good day-to-day life here and now. It’s about being a happy person. Warm-heartedness is a fundamental good human quality.”

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Tibet Today

It pains me so deep and hurts me so hard to see the suffering of my people under the Chinese repressive policies. I wish I were there to work day and night for their well-being. My heart goes out to them. Sending them prayers from the land of Lord Buddha.

Hear it Out!

This Winter

This Winter

This winter, when we are all free to set our footsteps on the new streets and roam around the old city.

This winter, before the Chinese virus, captured our towns and cities and locked us apart in a social distance.

This winter, when we are all enjoying our daily routines in our own space with no excuses and complaints.

This winter, when we are all free to travel from here to there with no barriers to borders and boundaries.

This winter, before we are all locked up in our rat-sized rooms and peep through the curtains for lively activities.

ངའི་ཕ་ས་ཕ་ཡུལ་དགྲ་ཡིས་བཟུང་།

ངའི་ཕ་ས་ཕ་ཡུལ་དགྲ་ཡིས་བཟུང་།

ངའི་ཕུ་ནུ་མིང་སྲིང་བདུད་ཀྱིས་བཅོམས།

ངའི་རི་ཆུ་ནགས་གསུམ་ཀླུ་ཡིས་བཟུང་།

ངའི་ཡུལ་ལྷ་གཞི་བདག་བསྟན་སྲུང་སོགས།

གནས་འདི་རུ་ཡོད་ན་ལན་གཅིག་གཟིགས།

ཕ་བཟང་བུ་ནས།

Deities and Defenders of the faith!

My land is under enemy’s occupation,

My siblings are subdued by the Demons and Devils,

My Rivers and Ranges are seized by the Serpents,

Glance at Them once if you ever Exist!

I Don’t Want Tibet to Die

French football fans form a Giant Tibetan Flag To Annoy Chinese Viewers

I Don’t Want Tibet to Die

I don’t want Tibet to die,

I don’t want Tibet to disappear,

I don’t want Tibet to be destroyed-

No; I don’t want Tibet to die.

I don’t want Tibet to be filled with Chinese,

I don’t want my children to be called Chinese,

I don’t want my children to become Chinese-

No; I don’t want Tibet to die.

While our self-serving leaders indulge in confusion,

And my fellow Tibetans in exile remain timid and ignorant,

I know a few of us alone cannot make Tibet free-

And yet I don’t want Tibet to die.

Because it is not fair and it is not just,

Because Tibetans have the same right to freedom,

Because I want Truth to triumph over evil-

No; I don’t want my dear Tibet to die.
