Tibet Interpretation : Economic Matters Only? [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

Given the millions of stipends the Dalai Lama is getting, reception at five star hotels, and fine dining, we wonder if materialism is indeed a Tibetan value or even Buddhist?  The Free Tibet movement comprise many exiles who have taken up foreign citizenship running a successful business from the industry from momentos to publications.

It is a basic human behaviour. Do you think Jews, capitalistic Americans, no-nonsense traits of some Anglo-Saxon cultures do not promote materialism? What's wrong with earning your worth if you put in the hard work and brain work. Only those lacking would be envious and bitter about it.   

Some folks may have misunderstood Chinese friends (who may not have seen your true colors).  Anything wrong with getting out of poverty that previous generations suffered?  Economic survival is a basic human right.

Mind you, I'm not kidding.
