    I read an article today with that title. link (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/may/29/downwiththedalailama) I found the article because I recently had a rant about the Dalai Lama and wanted to see what other critics exist. I was greatly affected, in a negative way, when the big...

  8. Why Tibet?

    It's one of the few issues involving Buddhists that bothers me. They teach that one should avoid attachment to anything in the physical world yet, for some reason, they desperately want Tibet back. It's just a piece of land. Numerous countries, including the one they are currently residing...
