Violence in Tibet: How You Can Help

    Monday, March 17, 2008, 4:20 PM [General]

    With scores of Buddhist monks still being beaten, evicted, and murdered by an oppressive Chinese military regime in Tibet, the Dalai Lama has declared the situation "cultural genocide."

    Even His Holiness has recently expressed his sadness and sense of helplessness. So it's natural that we feel that way too. Here are some reputable organizations to help you learn more and assist the people of Tibet--those currently living there, those in exile, and the existence of the Tibetan Buddhist culture itself.
