I finished watching two movies on the life of H.H the Dalai Lama (Kundun and Seven years in Tibet) which also highlight the tragedy of Tibet. Historically Tibet can be said as the only country which has dedicated itself to the attainment of Nibbana (take this with a pinch of salt). A huge amount of cultural heritage and Buddhist documents must have been lost during the cultural revolution.

So what do you make out of the tragedy of Tibet?

Do we learn any lessons about Karma?

Do you think that for protection of Dhamma Tibet should have indulged in dealing with arms?

If you are a Vajrayana, do you care for Liberation of Tibet?

P.S: Not being judgemental towards the Chinese.

    Should we close this as 100% opinion-based? – Andrei Volkov Jul 31 '18 at 17:29

    @AndreiVolkov I think it's a polling question again, i.e. it's asking about/for the opinion of every user on a (random) topic. Just because it's asked here doesn't automatically make it a question about Buddhism. And even just because it's asked about a Buddhist country doesn't make it a question about Buddhism or about Buddhist culture. It's nearly on-topic but it should concentrate more on being a specific question. Also asking "lessons learned about kamma" is more or less a duplicate of the earlier question about kamma and Jews in the Holocaust isn't it: so maybe not that question again. – ChrisW Jul 31 '18 at 18:28

    We've had questions about arms before, so I don't know what good asking about arms in Tibet might be. And asking "do you care?" is IMO a weak (open-ended) question, like "I can't think of a good question to ask, but say whatever you think is important about it." Maybe it would be better for a discussion site (elsewhere) than for Q+A (here). Anyway I closed another topic recently for being a polling question, I think I should do the same for this one. – ChrisW Jul 31 '18 at 18:32

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a polling question. You could also use the chat room for this topic if you want to. – ChrisW Jul 31 '18 at 18:35

    I am sorry @ChrisW, didn't mean to be passive-aggressive. I did get the answer in the holocaust link. :) – user13135 Aug 1 '18 at 10:40

I believe this question has been asked 2500 years ago. Please see Mahāparinibbānasutta DN16:

I will wipe out these Vajjis, so mighty and powerful! I will destroy them, and lay ruin and devastation upon them!
