China Has "Never Understood" Tibetan Culture, says His Holiness

Dharamshala, July 9 - His Holiness the Dalai Lama said Tuesday the Chinese government has never understood the heritage, culture and traditions of Tibetans. This is the root cause of all problems, but they are holding me responsible for this very fact.

His Holiness was talking to media during his visit to Ajmer city in the western state of Rajasthan to offer prayers at the Khawja Moinudeen Chisti Dargah on Tuesday, PTI reported.

Dismissing a Chinese government's proposal of restoring him powers upon his return to China, His Holiness emphasised that the issue of Tibet is the question of the future of six million Tibetans and not of his powers.

"Prior to the 1959 crisis, there was a 17-point agreement between Tibetans and Chinese government. As the then Communist government failed to comprehend the Tibetans' culture, the crisis aggravated," His Holiness said.

His Holiness recalled that though the Chinese government had softened its stand and became "liberal" in 1980, the favourable situation did not last long to reach a lasting solution.

His Holiness is expected to offer prayers at the tomb of the Sufi on Wednesday.
