These have been rough times for Tibetans. Reports of constant repression under Chinese rule in Tibet, coupled with a long series of self-immolations by protesting Tibetans, has been very sad. However, His Holiness the Dalai Lama says despite the harsh rule over Tibet, Tibetans' spirit only grows stronger, reported The Tibet Post International on Jan. 5, 2014.

The Dalai Lama has praised the strength of Tibetans living inside Tibet. He says it's really amazing, but the
spirit of Tibetans only grows stronger. The Dalai Lama has said that over the 54 years since he went into exile in India and the 64 years since the Chinese Communist Revolution in 1949, the Tibetan spirit has not been subdued. He has commented, "Today, the spirit of even small children is strong. Meanwhile, hardliner, narrow-minded Chinese leaders may exert harsh authority over Tibet, but the Tibetan spirit only grows stronger."

The Dalai Lama has noted that prior to Buddhism coming to Tibet, Tibetans didn't hesitate to fight. However, ever since the arrival of Buddhism among Tibetans a compassionate culture has evolved that is potentially very useful for the world today. The Dalai Lama has also expressed the belief that foreigners who are showing interest in Tibetan Buddhism can help because the Tibetan Buddhist religion and culture are at a crucial pass.

The Dalai Lama wants Buddhists to work together to build a better more equal world through peace and non-violence and he envisions the 20th century as a period of violence. These inspirational thoughts of
His Holiness the Dalai Lama have within them the power to help Buddhists and their friends worldwide work together for a more peaceful and brighter future for mankind.
