“Tibet: Home of the Brave” film premières in Canada

“Tibet: Home of the Brave” film premières in Canada | Undumbara Garden | Scoop.it

A cinematic journey to one of the most remote places on the planet, Tibet: Land of the Brave transports the audience into the everyday lives of Tibetan herders, seen through the eyes of Gyamtso, Marijo and their daughter, Yangchen. Following this Tibetan-Canadian couple, who are expecting their second child in Tibet’s snowy mountains, Tibet: Land of the Brave explores how China’s radical turn toward a market economy has devastating effects on the nomadic lifestyle. Tibetan nomads, who until recently have managed to preserve their ancestral heritage, now face serious threats to their daily lives. The Chinese government, convinced that the nomad population should follow the Western development model, ordered the sedentarization of 80 percent of Tibetan plateau nomads in 2010. During her time there, the filmmaker witnessed first-hand the effects of government policies: Tibetans nomads, forced to fence in their herds with barbed wire, are hammering the nails in their own coffins.

Phil Borges - Tibetan Portrait - photo collection | Undumbara Garden | Scoop.it

"In 1994 I traveled to Tibet as well as northern India and Nepal to interview and photograph Tibetans and Tibetan refugees in an effort to understand what happened to them, to their country and their culture. These are some of the people I met in this deeply spiritual culture---everyone from the nomads of the remote Himalayas to the Dalai Lama himself—each committed to their unique Tibetan culture and to the practice of compassion in the face of aggression."

China announces multi-billion development plan for Tibet, experts remain sceptical

China announces multi-billion development plan for Tibet, experts remain sceptical | Undumbara Garden | Scoop.it

China on Tuesday announced plans to spend 300 billion yuan (46.89 billion U.S. dollars) on 226 key projects ranging from railway and dam building to mining and promoting tourism in Tibet within the next five years. The projects are "aimed at achieving rapid development in Tibet", the official Xinhua news agency quoted deputy governor Hao Peng as saying. However, Tibetans and China experts remain sceptical of the motive and success of China’s development plans in Tibet. Tibetans have long argued that all of China’s grand projects in Tibet are planned and implemented without consultation, consent and knowledge of the local Tibetans.

"In the Shadow of the Buddha": one man’s journey of spiritual discovery and political danger in Tibet

"In the Shadow of the Buddha": one man’s journey of spiritual discovery and political danger in Tibet | Undumbara Garden | Scoop.it

For nearly a decade, Matteo Pistono smuggled out of Tibet evidence of atrocities by the Chinese government, showing it to the United States government, human rights organisations, and anyone who would listen. Yet Pistono did not originally intend to fight for social justice in Tibet – he had gone there as a Buddhist pilgrim. Matteo Pistono is a writer, photographer, political activist and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism. He lived and traveled throughout the Himalayas for a decade, bringing to the West first-hand accounts and photos of China’s human rights abuses in Tibet. He is the founder of Nekorpa, a foundation working to protect sacred pilgrimage sites around the world.

Exploring Vajrayana Buddhism: Quotes and Images

Exploring Vajrayana Buddhism: Quotes and Images | Undumbara Garden | Scoop.it

"The true man or woman of religion is a rebellion, a profound revolution, a whirlwind in the midst of all that tends toward stagnation, fixity, deadness. The true force of spirituality is a cool breeze blowing down from the mountain heights bringing new and fresh air into the world of mediocrity. It awakens, enlivens, and makes the heart bold and courageous. The awakened heart intervenes in affairs of ordinary men and women provoking one and all with an invitation. Only the one swooned in the Vajra Heart Essence of wisdom and compassion has a deathless joy that can truly afford courage." - Traktung Rinpoche
