outrageous 15 year

The news of Karma Sangdup's 15 years sentence on "trumped up charge" is shocking. But what is interseting is that his wife Dolkar Tso is doing the right things, by not laying back. She is appealing to higher authorities for review of his sentences. And she is keeping the outside world informed on the development through her blog. Tibetan author Woeser is speaking out and she is as usual very outspoken. I believe true courage is not bowing down when the going is getting tough. An Tibetan expert noted that a man of such statue and influence as Karma Samdup receiving such a harsh imprisonment is an indictor that the victem has offended someone very high up in the Communist Party. In today's China, anything else can be compromised, negotiated and bought by money and connection, except when it is issue of political loyality and adherence. Karma Sandup's case is deemed to be  sensitive and legal observers have voiced concern that China's courts are ignoring legal procedures when dealing with sensitive cases.
No matter how grave is the situation, Karma Sangdup is known better in the world now in jail than when he was out as a free man.
Karma Sangdup have travelled outside China and even have met the Dalai Lama. China might have kept eye on him for a long time.

2011 Kalachakra

His Holiness the Dalai Lama drew crowd like a rock star. His teachings and public appearance in the west had all the time sold out. People from all walks of life drew inspiration from His Holiness's simple message of universal brotherhood. He had a huge followers in the west and particularly in America. His ardent followers include Hollywood celebrities and high profile politician, statesmen, scientists, and businessmen and lay people.

 If enough karmas were accumulated, then we will have the highest esteem of His Holiness's presence in Washington D.C in 2011. And this time, his presence is religiously  significant, as the idea of His Holiness the Dalai Lama conferring the Kalachakra in the capital city of the world's lone super power float around. Going by what some of the people alleging is that even the venue has been worked out, albeit it is too costly.

Education celebration

I was taught that  education or learning is a life long process. But I believe college and schools were the prime time for learning and educating. High school graduation possibly symbolizes a considerable achievement in ones education. Yet the end of 12 grade should be  the beginning of a serious intellectual pursuit. This should serve as a stepping stone for further success. With a high school diploma, it will take you to a new horizon.

Whethering Storm

 The dark storm comes every ones a  while. The monster storm knocks down  everything on her path. With rising hair and long ugly claw, she dashes around  like a mad cow. uprooting the trees, and scattering dusts everywhere. The only means to pacify this monster is not with a "eye for eye", but by using intelligence and wit. She is possessed by a demon, and only way to bring back peace and tranquility is to ostracize the evil inside. The raging storm appears to be formidable, ferocious and fearful . She has no consciousness, she is extremely destructive.

Owing to the different variables and whether pressure, brewing of  ones a while storm is inevitable. We shouldn't be cowed down by the mother nature. We should be prepared to deal with this challenge with wisdom and compassion. Standing up and face the evil, will toughen our person and strengthen our soul. As the saying goes, the secret of success is falling down seven times and getting up eight times. The storm might knock you off, and kick your ass. But when the going is getting tough, the tough is get going.
