GBS is a big lash on #China. #CCP has demolished several Buddhist sites and as its core communist policy, has no space for religion. GBS reminds the Buddhist countries that #India is their only 2nd home from where #Buddhism went to world. ImageImage

1/ Der #DalaiLama machte mit seiner Zungen-Lutsch-Aktion gegenüber einem Kind (!) Schlagzeilen.

Guter Zeitpunkt für einen (nicht so) Fun Fact: Das Image des Dalai Lama als liebevoller spiritueller Führer ist weitgehend Fiktion. Er war 60 Jahre lang theokratischer Machthaber. 🧵 Image
2/ Tibet war lange ein eigenständiges Königreich und wurde 1720 zu einem Protektorat der chinesischen Qing-Dynastie. Tibet genoss aber grosse Autonomie. Nach der Revolution 1912 in China blieb Tibet formal Teil von China, war de facto aber selbstständig.
3/ Diese Selbstständigkeit endete 1951 mit der chinesischen Annexion Tibets. 1959 löste China brutal die bestehenden politischen Strukturen in Tibet auf. Der 14. Dalai Lama musste ins Ausland flüchten.

#DalaiLama | La pedofilia y la sodomía están institucionalizados en el monacato budista.

Las terribles imágenes del Dalai Lama besando y pidiéndole a un niño que le “chupe la lengua” son el reflejo de una realidad común en el budismo tibetano.

🧵 Image
En 2018, el mismo Dalai Lama admitió que el budismo tiene “un problema de ética sexual" y que tienen conocimiento de violaciones ocurriendo en sus comunidades al menos desde principios de los años 90. Image
La doctrina budista no enseña sobre el consentimiento sexual como nosotros lo concebimos. Si bien el sexo sin consentimiento afirmativo es la definición de agresión, los primeros suttas (discursos) budistas del canon pali no definían el sexo ético entre adultos en esos términos.

This is exactly how I escaped from #Tibet. I could still remember how I ate carcass of Yak while crossing those gigantic mountains.

I was short of shoes. We walked on feet for 2 months. Today, #India is a home away from home. 🙏

🎥Escape from Tibet
I am really overwhelmed by your unwavering support. You can read my journey here:

After reaching #India, under the guidance of His Holiness the #DalaiLama, I was sent to Tibetan Homes School in Mussoorie where I did my schooling.

Today, I owe immensely indebted to the people of India! 🙏🏻 Image

On the occasion of #TeachersDay2022, we would like to remember & highlight some instances of cruel suffering that #Tibetan teachers have been enduring at the hands of #CCP in #Tibet.
#CCP ordered the closure of Sengdruk Taktse school in Darlak in eastern #Tibet where #RinchenKyi was the longest-serving #teacher. Without giving any official reason she was taken from her home on charges of “inciting separatism”.

#TeacherInTibet @NetTibet @UNESCO @SaveTibetOrg
Kunkhen, a Tibetan #teacher was apprehended by #CCP at the age of 34 & in good health. When he was released on 21 August 2016, his eyesight & hearing were failing & lips gnarled. His waning vision could escalate into blindness. #JusticeForTibet

#OdeToDemocracy series continues.

We look at the milestones in the journey of #Tibetan Democracy in exile as #Tibetans celebrate 62nd #TibetanDemocracyDay.

The Deputies were initially assigned to various departments of the CTA and met twice a month. On 10 March 1963, His Holiness – after years of thorough consultations – promulgated the Constitution consisting of 10 chapters and 77 articles. #Tibet Image
The democratisation of the #Tibetan polity has long been an aspiration of His Holiness the 14th #DalaiLama. He had, in fact, initiated the reforms in #Tibet itself but this was interrupted due to China’s invasion in 1949/50. @Tibparliament Image

I wrote this with an aim of giving a one-stop-shop for all things re Tibetan Buddhist reincarnations & in particular how the battle "for" Mongolia's #Jebtsundamba Khutuktu b/n Dharamsala & Beijing (#Shugden) will impact #DalaiLama & Buddhism' future.

1/n
worldpoliticsreview.com/articles/read/…
Last summer two peculiar fake news made waves in🇲🇳.

One said, "Dalai Lama had died". The other said, "10th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu will be enthroned tomorrow".

Both were denied by Dharamsala & Mongolia's main monastery Gandantegchinlen. Let's see what if they were true?

2/n
Authority to identify the 10th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu (JK) rests with the Dalai Lama & if he died in his absence, powers friendly to 🇨🇳 (inc Shugden sect) would likely have argued for the religion’s second-highest authority, the Panchen Erdeni, to identify the next Khutuktu.

1/ 🚨🚨Who is a #Tibetan?🚨🚨

Relatedly,
❓Where is #Tibet?
❓Are all Tibetans #Buddhist?
❓Do all of them revere @DalaiLama?
❓Are there Tibetans (other than #exiled pop"n) outside Tibet?
❓Do all #Tibetans identify as... erm ..Tibetan?

#TweetHistorians
2/ The 11th Zurmang Trungpa (1939-87) said #Tibetan 'insiders' (ནང་པ་) share these common features:

☑️speaking some variant of Tibetan lang
☑️following #Buddhist faith
☑️eating tsampa (roasted barley flour)

Who was he?
treasuryoflives.org/biographies/vi…

A handy definition, but...

~SC
3/ Let's tackle the big one first: #Tibet has long been identified as a pristine Buddhist #Shangrila.
But,

❌Not Tibetans are Buddhist.

❌Not all Tibetan Buddhists revere the @DalaiLama in the same way.

See #himalayanhistories 🧵on #Shangrila:

1/ On Tibetan Buddhist Nuns in Exile:

#OnThisDay @DalaiLama was awarded #NobelPeacePrize, the only #Buddhist religious leader thus honored (#MLK nominated @thichnhathanh in '67).

Many associate #Tibet w/ him+ other monks in red robes--

What about nuns? Celebrations at Majnu Ka Ti...
2/ "Some feminists from the West cud accuse me by saying, ‘The #DalaiLama is the authority but he doesn’t help the nuns.’"

Yes, @DalaiLama has often faced the accusation that the #TibetanBuddhist tradition doesn't give nuns the same rights as monks.

3/ 🚨🚨🚨 Of the 8 reps of #TibetanBuddhism in the current Parliament in Exile– two each from Gelug, Kagyu, Sakya, Nyigma sects– **all** are monks; so are the two members from pre-Buddhist Bon religion.

(Though ~1/3 of MPs from provinces U-Tsang, Dhotoe+ Dhomey are women.)

On the @DalaiLama & India:
1/ Many of us know that the 14th @DalaiLama has been living in #exile in #Himalayan town of #Dharamsala in northern India since 31 Mar 1959.

Why India?
Was he blazing a trail w/ his escape?

#TweetHistorians
Map from @TIME (1959)
2/ Second question first: No, he wasn't.

In coming to India, the @DalaiLama trod the path of many #Tibetans before him-- traders+ aristocrats, monastics+ laity, and his predecessor, the 13th #DalaiLama, Thupten Gyatso, who had lived in exile in British India from 1910-12.

--SC
3/ Aristocratic families in #Tibet were closely tied in networks of monastic patronage, intermarriage +trade w/ eastern #Himalayan kingdoms of #Bhutan+ #Sikkim. The British Political Officer in Sikkim kept close watch on these alliances. Here he is w/ the 13th #DalaiLama👇.

THREAD: @AmbZhengZeguang - welcome to UK

I have 10 questions for you

1. Millions of #Uyghurs are in prison camps, women forcibly sterilised, people used for slave labour, horrific torture & sexual violence reported /
The evidence is there, & increasingly experts recognise it as genocide. Why are you doing this to Uyghurs & why won't you allow international, independent monitors to visit unrestricted?/
2. Why have you torn up an international treaty, lodged at the UN, valid until 2047, in which you promised to protect #HongKong's autonomy, freedoms, rule of law and basic human rights? Why has your regime destroyed #HongKongers' freedoms?

Now that the #Tibetan Policy and Support Act is law, let's take a look at what the legislation does--and why the #TPSA matters /THREAD
2/ The #TPSA provides a much-needed update to US policy on #Tibet. It's the most comprehensive Tibet legislation in the United States since the Tibetan Policy Act of 2002
3/ The #TPSA creates an official US policy recognizing the authority of ONLY the @DalaiLama and Tibetan #Buddhists to decide on his succession. If any Chinese officials try to name their own Dalai Lama in the future--as China has long said it will do--they'll be sanctioned

The new year begins and I usher into a scientific journey where I shall be challenging myself with scientific quest and reviewing a scientific article/blog/interview/technique or facts on a daily basis. (or at least try😉) #365DaysOfScience
Let the journey begin.
The most cited article (over 300,000 times) is the @jbiolchem paper for a technique to estimate protein concentration in a solution. The paper is "Protein measurement with the folin phenol reagent".
#365DaysOfScience

Yes, the classic Lowry's method was published in May 1951. This is a colourimetric assay which gives an estimation of the amount of protein based on a standard curve obtained from a protein of known concentration (usually BSA).

Fair warning... Get ready for a thread celebrating H.H. the @DalaiLama's 84th birthday 🎂! Performances included! Honored to join @IRF_Ambassador, @AmbDMitchell, @USAID & @officeoftibet @NgodupTsering7 on the visit of the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts to the U.S. & Canada.
First, a #quote. Whether #HongKongProtests or #girlseducation in South Asia, or a myriad of issues in #America, don't forget:

"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito." ~H.H. the Dalai Lama

Next: Get ready for some video! ⬇️
A beautiful evening begins w/ the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA), founded by the Dalai Lama in India, in exile from Tibet, in 1959. Then the Tibetan Music, Dance & Drama Society, it was established to preserve Tibetan artistic heritage, esp. opera, dance & music.

A thread 👇🏽.

Last week I travelled to Dharamsala to the residence of the #DalaiLama.

He’s lived in exile in India for more than 60 years, after China sent troops into #Tibet in 1959.

As he approaches his 84th birthday I asked him a range of questions.

#BBCDalaiLama
The interview was wide ranging.

The Dalai Lama was scathing about President Trump arguing he has “no moral principle”. He hit out at his America First policies.

Watch the clip here.

#BBCDalaiLama. #DalaiLama #Trump.
It’s significant that the @DalaiLama hasn’t met or talked to @realDonaldTrump because he had such a strong relationship with past US presidents. Barack Obama and George W Bush most recently. George W Bush even did a painting of the Dalai Lama. bbc.com/news/av/world-…
