Tibetan cultureIn Larung Gar located in eastern Tibet, a video footage which shows weeping nuns as they are excluded in convoys of buses whereas their small wooden huts are knocked down drew a major global attention which instigated an attack at the world-famous Buddhist institute of this place.

 

In ‘Shadow of Dust across the Sun’ of ICT, one gets to witness the destruction and evictions at Larung Gar and Yachen Gar which took place in the last six months. These are part of an unfolding political approach which includes even more destructive measures to restrain and manage the rising power of the monks and nuns and their numbers at these central monastic centers of study in eastern Tibet.

 

The report also shows various undermining religious practices and their teachings and security measures. The Chinese Government is utilizing this inclination in Tibetan Buddhism to lure domestic tourists leading to the fears of destruction of monastic communities which are otherwise known as ‘encampments’ or ‘chogars’ in Tibetan.

 

To quote, Matteo Mecacci, President of the International Campaign for Tibet, ‘’ The new evidence presented in this report calls into question the entire basis of the demolition of homes and expulsion of nuns and monks, which have caused such distress. It cannot be possible for the Chinese authorities to claim there is overcrowding and not enough space for genuine religious practitioners given the extent of construction over a vast area in this remote valley. The UN statement reflects global alarm over the counter-productive razing of homes and expulsion of monks and nuns who have peacefully studied at these world famous religious institutes – which are so precious for Chinese as well as Tibetans.’’
