    written. This situation has been compounded by a lack of archeological evidence and the cultural destruction inflicted on Tibet during the Cultural Revolution. In fact, there is a hopeless gap between the history of Tibet as accepted by the Tibetans themselves and the one put forward by the Chinese and taught to Tibetan children using Chinese. Kham (Tibetan: ཁམས་, Wylie: khams) is an eastern region of Tibet. Today it is largely divided between the Tibetan Autonomous Region and Sichuan, with smaller portions located within Gansu and Northern Yunnan provinces. During the Republic of China's rule over mainland China (–), most of the region was administratively part of Tibetan central government but had some autonomy.

      Tibet may be best known for its bounty of ancient Buddhist monasteries and stark natural beauty—but it’s also blessed with a vast diversity of languages. “A readable, fascinating account of Tibet’s history from the beginning Laird teaches a memorable and vivid history lesson about a remote mysterious place that, in terms of its sheer survival, has implications for our own lives.” —Susan Larson, New Orleans Times Picayune.

Anyway, the essence is I want you to see the incredible achievement of the Tibetan people, the vast achievement of preserving the entire Buddhadharma, not only the intellectual understanding of the complete Dharma.

The fate of Tibet’s unique national, cultural and religious identity is seriously threatened and manipulated by the Chinese. China’s policy of occupation and oppression has resulted in no more or less than the destruction of Tibet’s national independence, culture and religion, environment and the universal human rights of its people.

For at least years, the nation of Tibet has had a complex relationship with its large and powerful neighbor to the east, China. The political history of Tibet and China reveals that the relationship has not always been as one-sided as it now appears.
