Self-immolator 5: “Han people invades Tibet”, definitely wrong

01-25-2013 09:58 BJT

Editor's note: an ordinary Tibetan young man, a young lama practicing Buddhism, who nearly set himself on fire and was about to be abandoned by the instigators. What role does the "Tibet government-in-exile" play in this case? What are the lies and the truth behind the flames? From today on, the China Tibet Online will release the story of a young Buddhist, a potential self-immolator enticed by the book titled "Repentance-from Dharamsala" written by Xiaolin.

After spending a few days in Nepal, Gyatso and other stowaways were brought to Dharamsala, the final destination, with a bus branded "Potala".

Gyatso was shocked by the scene when he set his feet on the land of Dharamsala, where the modern colorful residential buildings, hotels and shops were mixed together with dirty slums and open barns.

Everything in the composite town featured both modern circumstances and unfashionable atmosphere seems far from the pure land to learn Buddhism in Gyatso’s mind.

In Dharamsala, the first stop for the stowaways was the "Reception Office of the Tibetan government- in- exile in India", where they were asked to talk with an old man.

The talk was nothing new but just repeatedly to emphasize how the "Han people invade Tibet", which confused Gyatso as he thought it had nothing to do with him.

In the view of Gyatso, the only reason he came to Dharamsala was to learn Buddhism, and hearing too much emphasis on how the "Han people invade Tibet" just made him boring. However, such kind of talks, which many foreign journalists also attended, almost happened every day.

At the beginning people there were very interested in the experience of Gyatso, and asked him a lot about Lhasa, the Han people and the Tibetan government. But he was restricted to say things they were not interested.

In Dharamsala, it was very hard to see Dalai Lama, the so-called spirit leader of the "Tibetan government-in-exile". Gyatso was told that the Dalai Lama was always traveling from one country to another, which disappointed him as he couldn’t understand that why he was always travelling.

Later, Gyatso knew that it was not easy to see the Dalai Lama even if he was in Dharamsala, as those who want to see the Dailai had to answer many questions and be checked and made a body search.
