Consider the freedom you have to engage in your spiritual path, help a Tibetan gain the rights to be able to do so for their religion.
“Unless freedom comes to Tibet, then Tibetan Buddhism in Tibet is impossible.”
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama
“Today, the Chinese authorities are conducting various political campaigns, including a campaign of patriotic re-education, in many monasteries in Tibet. They are putting the monks and nuns in prison-like conditions, depriving them the opportunity to study and practice in peace. These conditions make the monasteries function more like museums and are intended to deliberately annihilate Buddhism.”
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama, 10 March 2010
