Readers' Comments on "Celebrating Exile-II: Our religion and the struggle"
Many of my non-Tibetan friends get quite disappointed when I say that I don't do prayers, prostrations and other rituals. They wanted me, not only me, all Tibetans to be staunchly Buddhists; wearing a rosary around our neck...

Any Tibetan who is contributing an article on Tibet/Tibetans always brings a fragment of Dalai Lama's statement in his or her article to get support from other people.
If you really want to change our community bring your own suggestion and idea without being sycophant of somebody.

Enjoyed going thru Tsondue's article. I empathize and appreciate his thoughts on the religious practice and politics of Tibetans in exile. On the subject of being Buddhist, I consider actual study and assimilation of Buddhist philosophy is the key factor rather than just mere physical and verbal rituals, coz the core objective of Buddhism is transformation of one's defiled mind which ultimately leads to the Liberation(Buddhahood). One small correction in your article where u quoted 'Tseme-Chiwa' as non-harming non-violence' which I think should be 'Tseme as Non-Violence and Chiwa as Peace.' My other critic is on the subject of 'Choe-Tsi-Sungdrel' where u did relate it to the combination of Buddhahood and Politics which I think is incorrect in practical sense. Here, literally Choe means religion, Tsi pertains to politics, and Sungdrel refers to concerted effort or complimentary or combination of the two. However, my clarification is that here in this case, CHoe or religion doesnt necessarily pertain to attaining Buddhahood, but practically refering to ethics or moral conduct based on the guiding principles of Buddhism(which is the essence in our day to day worldly life). And you know Politics becomes dirty and mushrooms corruption in absence of these guiding principles or Ethics. So, my understanding of the tibetan term 'Choe-tsi Sungdrel' is clean Politics based on or guided by ethics or Buddhist Principles. I am glad to share this view with others and extend my thanks to Tsondue for bringing up this topic. I apologise for any error here. I consider this as a medium for our intellectual enhancement and an opportunity for constructive interactions for good. See u later. Bye

I have been looking for a copy of Note On Tibet. I have overjoyed on knowing that Tsundue La and other dedicated people are translating it into Tibetan and English.
I just cannot wait to relish it! The power of the book revealed by two persons as,
One guy from East Turkistan, present so called XinJiang, comments "I read your book and finished, tears welling my eyes, I want to shout, but I am afraid. What I can do is only cry in private".
A tibetan guy comments, "Woeser la, it is lonely and deep night, I finished your book. I am crying myself....."

Above sentences are maybe not be exactly the precise translation, however meaning is same. I read those comments on www.tibetcul.com

Love Tibet Love Freedom
