Culture

The key to the future survival of the Tibetan culture and outcome of the Tibetan issue lies in the hands of the Tibetan population living inside Tibet. The unique Tibetan Culture has existed over four thousand years and the Tibetans are determined to protect it by adapting to the 21st century. For example, even the unique Tibetan tradition of reincarnates in Tibetan Buddhism is being questioned by practicing Tibetan Buddhist. In recent years, several prominent Tibetan sages and teachers have prohibited their reincarnations from being recognized.

Our Vision

 

With modern education ethnic Tibetans will be better prepared to preserve their unique cultural heritage and protect the fragile biodiversity of the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayan region. They will be able to keep pace with the rapid modernization of China and India while also maintaining their identity, traditions and values.
