Tibet has long housed and developed a concentrated spirituality, a treasure trove of wisdom, disciplines, tools and mentorship. I think people like these monks in concentrated spiritual practice are the Atlases that hold the world up, no the vain Herculean heroes of ego who perform for us their various feats. Spiritual humanitarians are humble and work in the background, seeking no glory.
While the communist regime in China was abusive and wrong to invade and annex Tibet, which has long had a distinct linguistic, religious and regional identity, the time was ripe karmically for this great treasure to be released from its Himalayan vault and be gifted to the world. There is great purpose in it and it is being fulfilled more each year.
