The justifying context of higher emptiness

CTA’s response to Jamyang Norbu’s post on the controversial statement made by the PM is rather puzzling. Not the faintest argument is provided, not even an attempt to deny Norbu’s analysis. The reader is instead …

‘Democracy with Tibetan Characteristics’ – A Response!
Tenzin Nyinjey  |  Saturday, Sep 18, 2010  |  One Comment

Norbu Samphel’s twisted democracy is indeed ‘unique!’ He advocates a sort of ‘people’s democratic dictatorship,’ wherein doubts and criticisms have no place. His democracy with ‘Tibetan characteristics’ disapproves of any Tibetan (young and old) asking …

Middle Way or bust

The year 2008, for many reasons, is likely to go down in the annals of recent Tibetan history as a watershed year. This was the year when Tibetans in Tibet, 49 years after the takeover …
