The old Tibetan culture




















A Tibetan portable shrine on display in the Victoria & Albert Museum.  The case was used to transport holy talismans.  Approximately a hundred years old.

The old Tibetan culture is very precious, and one hopes that Tibet will one day achieve freedom and the old ways be restored.

On the anniversary (actually yesterday) of the Tibetan uprising in 1959, I think of Churchill's message to occupied France:  "Good night, then. Sleep to gather strength for the morning, for the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true; kindly upon all who suffer for the cause..."
