    History of the title DALAI LAMA which was created by high official of the Central Kingdom (CHINA).

    Altan Khan (俺答汗) was given title King/Wang (王) by the emperor (明朝隆庆皇帝) of the Central Kingdom in 1570 (隆慶四年 of the Ming Dynasty) because of historical event called 俺答封贡. This is what he said when he became a member of the Cetral Kingdom: . Altan Khan(俺答汗) said: "我不为乱,乱由全等。今吾孙降汉,是天遣之合也。天子 幸封我为王,永长北方,诸部孰敢为患……彼受朝廷厚恩,岂敢负耶?” Translation: "the Emperor gave me title King/Wang, I'm so happy, I'm part of the Central Kingdom, I will work loyally for the Central Kingdom". The title Dalai Lama was given by Altan Khan (俺答汗) in 1578 (万历六年 of Ming Dynasty) when this official from the Central Kingdom visited 察布齐雅勒庙 in 青海.

    Chinese are brainwashed.

  • HAOTAI YU on March 20, 2017

    Dalai wants Tibet people to get into war to get his personal status. Because in Tibet religion culture there are two leaders called "बुद्ध" which means "live Buddha", and the two chosen ones govern Tibet together. Now Dalai wants to be the only dictator and even doesn't care about people's lives in Tibet, so he abets Tibet people who believe in their "live Buddha" to kill Chinese people as terrorists. Now fellas, what do you think about this guy?

  • Dean Casarte on March 20, 2017

    The Dolly Llama is a clone manufactured by the Chinese government. They switched him when he was just a baby llama! The real Llama lives in the highlands of Peru still ignorant as to his divine destiny! More people need to know about this before he´s turned into a poncho.

  • Draakie100 on May 10, 2017

    The most important "thing" in life that Buddhism has taught me is that I must live at peace with myself to be of any benefit to our planet and mankind. It saddens me when I read some of the narrow minded comments below this video, and how many times the thumbs down button was pressed. I see a very confused M.Ware, this is probably because of all the pain and hate he has seen in his life being a combat reporter, and I hope that he learns something from this interview. Mankind needs to see that without pure compassion our planet will never be a place we can all be proud of. (jmho).

  • Thomas Li on April 17, 2019

    Dalai Lama wish on "not having independence" of Tibet was never ever a truth. Look this guy what he is talking or dreaming. He and his unholy group would wish that the feudal system of enslaving the poor Tibetans could return and he would be sitting at a throne surrounded by his officials enjoying the cruelty inflicted on the slaves like the gone by years. Return the people to caste systems of India so he could rule once more.

  • Jang Nguyen on April 29, 2019

    No matter whateverism it is, but if it's bloodshed, tortured, brainwashes, (and in fact, there are nothing good-ism if it's in the hands of authorities, even a fairy tales.) it just lead human to barbarism. I can see that picture so clearly.

    Dalai lama will get tibet back to the india

  • Chosen on May 27, 2020

    Everything what Tibetan prime minister said then makes absolute sense now, after almost 3 years. Tibetan know china better than any other country. If the world does not support Tibetan now. Then no wonder the humanity is blinded by the red band.

  • Tanmay Sarkar on July 10, 2020

    Tibet will be free soon. Love from India.

  • Stephen chan on August 31, 2020

    The Tibetan Prime Minister lives in a dream world. He thought Tibetan should be granted independence but by whom. He is able to gain financial and moral support by sympathetic Europeans who has learned of Tibet through Hollywood romantic movies covering the ruling class ( 5% of the total population). Time has changed. The former serfs are almost gone. The descendants now are free, better educated and well equipped to fit in the 21st century. The clock cannot be turn back. Even Dalai Lama recognizes it. This marks the end of the feudal system there.

  • Janglal Goupiak on September 2, 2020

    1. Was Tibet an independent country before 1912?
    Tibet was an independent country before 1246. From 1373 to 1578, Tibet rulers paid tribute to Chinese Ming dynasty government many times. In 1642, Dalai Lama invited a Mongol tribe’s troops to come into Tibet to fight other opposite Tibetan groups. Tibet was then controlled by this Mongol tribe. This Mongol tribe voluntarily submitted to the Chinese Qing dynasty in 1653 for Chinese support to defend against west Mongols. In 1705, Chinese emperor abolished the 6th Dalai Lama for his violation of Buddhist obligation, and ordered him to be arrested and sent to Beijing for punishment. He died on the way.
    Since 18th century, Dalai Lama had kneed down towards Chinese emperor’s picture many times during ceremonies. China posted a garrison in Lhasa from 1751. Tibet respected Chinese government’s sovereignty, which is typically shown in the selection of the 10th Dalai Lama in 1822. Britain and Russia recognized Tibet as a part of China in 1906. China ruled Tibet directly from 1910 to 1911. Since Manchu are Chinese citizens and support China’s claim on Tibet, Chinese regarded China after Qing as a legal successor of Qing dynasty. (In fact, Western countries made sure China became the successor of Qing dynasty, so that China could continue to pay the huge ransom owed by Qing to the West countries after it was defeated in 1900.)

    2. Was Tibet an independent country between 1912 and 1950?
    After the collapse of China’s Qing dynasty in 1912, China witnessed a lot of civil wars and warlordism until 1949, but did not denounce its claim on Tibet. Tibet never declared independence towards China or other countries during this period. (The 13th Dalai Lama himself denied (to the British) that he had ever authorized the Russian subject–Agvan Dorjiev, to sign a treaty with Mongolians on behalf of Tibet. So, that 1913 treaty is not valid.) USA officially recognized Tibet as a part of China in 1943, way before communist China existed.
    No country in the world recognizes Tibet as an independent country, or officially regard Tibet as not a part of china, or officially regard Tibet as occupied by China.

    3. Did Tibet has opportunity to defeat Chinese invasion in 1950?
    Tibet is huge and has very high altitude and very thin air which is difficult for Chinese to breathe, let alone climb mountains. The total length of road which a 4-wheel vehicle can drive in whole Tibet was only 4 kilometers in 1950. Chinese has to across many high mountains at very high altitude for 2000 kilometers to get to Lhasa. There was little sources of food or even water. In short, Tibet was a perfect place to wage guerilla war on Chinese troops, and that is exactly what CIA recommended to Tibetans. In 1950, Tibet had about 100,000 bolt rifles and many Tibetans were hunters and can shoot very accurately over long distance. If Tibetans used guerilla war to attack Chinese supply line, Chinese troops will starve to death and have not way to advance across 2000 kilometers of mountains (without road) into central Tibet. Instead, Tibetans choose to sign the peace liberation treaty after only two hundred Tibetan soldiers got killed in the Chamdo battle in 1950. In short, Tibetans had good chance to defeat Chinese in 1950 if they really want. But it is impossible in 1959 since China had built 3 roads (totally >4000 kilometers) and bridges into Tibet since 1950.

    4. Why Tibetans rebelled in 1959?
    Before 1956, most Tibetans were serfs, and most lands were owned by noblemen and monasteries. The part of Tibet (central) ruled by Dalai Lama enjoyed very high autonomy within China from 1950-1959. China launched land reforms in the Chinese directly ruled (east) Tibetan areas in 1956, taking land from noblemen and monasteries and distributing them to the serfs. Rebellion led by noblemen and monasteries broke out in east Tibet in 1956, with independence as the slogan to get support from serfs, and spread to Lhasa in 1959, encouraged and supported by the CIA.

    5. Does China repress Tibetans and practice cultural genocide?
    No. Besides, there is a long covered fact (by all parts involved) about China and communism. Chinese communism was created with the help of Soviet Union, and controlled by Stalin. After the Second World War, Soviet Union supplied Chinese communist troops with captured Japanese weapons including 2700 artilleries, and produced ammunitions and weapons for communists in Russia-occupied China’s north-east. USA organized an international arms embargo to the troops of Chinese anti-communist government. Chinese nationalist government troops were poorly equipped with little artilleries and ammunition. Communism caused at least 60million Chinese death. The truth is: communism was forced upon to Chinese by Soviet union with the help of U.S. So, China should not be blamed for the destruction of Tibetan culture in Cultural revolution in Tibet.

    I am a Han Chinese. I am on Tibetan people’s side.
    This is actually quite easy to explain. When democracy returns to China, when people are startled by the amount of money that CCP spent on suppressing Tibet, there would be no political groups, no provinces of Han people willing to spend that money for no good business. Dalai Lama is doing a favor for China.
