No Mas for the Dalai Lama

After decades of trying to get China to listen to reason, the Dalai Lama has finally given up.

For years, the Dalai Lama - the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people - has been attempting to engage the Chinese government to join him in a discussion of what he has called "The Middle Way".

According to the Dalai Lama, he has acted in good faith regarding China. He insists that his goal isn't an independent Tibet, but an easing of oppression where the country's religious traditions are concerned.

Given the example of the Chinese Government's oppression of Falun Gong, it is not hard to imagine that they see Tibetan Buddhism as a threat as well. And they should. Any religion worth the mentioning must be a threat to China's brutal, illegal, totalitarian government.

For now, the DL is turning back to the Tibetan people, asking for their guidance regarding their future with China.
