Tantric Buddhism permeates all areas of life

Tibet remains an exceedingly difficult region for the Gospel. Among the Kahm people there are very few believers, indeed it is possible that there are no Christians at all among the Northern Kahm group.

Country Profile

Population:
9 milllion worldwide

Tibetan Buddhism 95%; Poltheism 4%; Other 1%
People Groups:
40
Unreached People Groups:
TBC
Languages:

Fact:
The Tibetan people are totally immersed in Tantric Buddhism that permeates all areas
of life.

WHAT WE DO

Various ministries to Tibet including literature, teaching, outreach and radio programming and supply of radios. An agricultural project is helping a community develop products commercially. Marriage guidance ministry is also being developed.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Tibet remains an exceedingly difficult region for the Gospel. Among the Kahm people there are very few believers, indeed it is possible that there are no Christians at all among the Northern Kahm group. Regular radio broadcast in the Kahm languages are a significant ministry where both the geography of the country and the distinctive Tibetan Buddhism have proven obstacles to the spread of the Good News.

Cost: £20 provides a significant pack of outreach and training materials for Tibet. £50 helps run a marriage guidance course. £70 is the cost of one day of Christian broadcasting in the Kahm language. Give to Tibet ministries here.

PRAY FOR

While there is a seven hundred year history of missions in Tibet and still only a handful of believers, the harvest is ripe. The Tibetan church is growing and so is the missions force to reach them. Pray for the workers who face some of the harshest living conditions on the planet. Pray that the Lord would place a hedge around them. Pray the 'Light of the nations' would shine into the spiritual darkness of Tibetan Buddhism.

dear readers and prayer partners
i am basically from Nagaland but living in dehradun, north india for the past 16 years. I started mentoring some tibetans and also bible studies. few responded well but almost all of them went back. the evil power gripped them so bad that it is not easy to break them from this bondage. after working with another organisation i came back to work among tibetans again just this september 2010.
continue to uphold us in prayer too. and we would like to see doors open among tibetans soon. many blessings and God's power to everyone

The region of Eastern Tibet is Kham. Not Kahm. This kind of lack of knowledge about who you're preaching to does not help your cause.

Although I am by religious confession a Christian, I really hope that your mission will be finished as quickly as possible, because the non-existent knowledge about Tibet (that shows persistently wrong writing of Kham) is really abad testimony of Christians. Make clear where are you evangelizing and whom are you evangelizing.

You so-called "Christians" should be ashamed of yourselves, preying on a people that have suffered under the Chinese Communists for so long. You are helping the Chinese to eradicate Tibetan culture. Buddha was born 500 years before Jesus and the Tibetan Buddhist religion is a powerful and compassionate one. I met many Christian missionaries in Tibet, particularly in Xining, and one group of them told my wonderful friend, Gompo, who was working with a British NGO in health care, that he would burn in hell if he didn't convert to Christianity. I have nothing but contempt for the work you do in Tibet and the destruction you are perpetrating there. The sooner the Christian missionaries pack their bags and go back to where they came from, the better. Shame on you.

I just bumped into this site after searching about Christianity in Tibet after seeing a documentary about Catholics in Tibet needing priests on a Catholic channel a relative was watching (God in Tibet).
I'm encouraged to hear that people are caring for this nation. Karen makes an interesting point-- let's be careful when we do share God's love that we don't preach our own culture. We must remember it is God who made people and cultures, the good aspects, and He is for every culture. The message of Jesus preached faithfully doesn't kill a culture it enhances it! Buddhism, like any belief came to Tibet, if I am correct, so it isn't that the cultures are inseparable... Check that documentary to see very old Catholic communities in Tibet-- eye opening even if you are not Catholic.
Any one inspired to provide Sunday school or youth group for that community in the documentary? (CatholicRadioTVNet...)

I just bump into this site.I couldn't believe you sick Cristians are desperately trying to convert tibetans into cristianity.I don't have any problems with Crist religion. helping some poor countries and trying to convert them into cristianity is wrong. its a good thing that cristians people helps other poor countries but the help should come with a genuine compassion not with some evil motives behind. I seriously suggest to stop this. that is the root problem muslim doesn't like cristian.there is no golden gate waiting for u if u convert somepeople to cristianity. May peace previal on earth.

I am very glad that many missioneries are doing the good job of spreading the holy massage into tibet.I being a tibetan(living in Nepal),i feel that some missineries are making mistake by going right into the tibetan society.there is very big bondage within tibetan,every culture and life style is deeply connected to bhuddhism.One should learn about the tibetan living style and way he most important thing is that tibetan always think that foreigner are outer people.What should be done is that,missioneries must train the few strong tibetans and then spread them into different areas.I am sure that the prosecution will be less the massage of holy kingdom had been delivered by tibetan and people will know better from them because they have the common nature.
I being a tibetan christian living in nepal,i have sighted many nepali churches and Pastor talking loud about the tibetan christianity.They have done this and that for tibetan.But please dont fell into their evil paw.
Tibetan christian are very few in number and all must pray for them.
well it was quite long writing,
amen

I received a plea from Campaign for Tibet today. As a Christian I am struck by the pains of others. Especially when they do not know the love our Creator has for them and the way He made for each of us to be rejoined to Him in perfect loving unity.

All man us fallen from perfection and God alone is love, truth, perfection. We cannot be rejoined to Him except through the salvation of Jesus Christ. Jesus as Gods own son, made flesh and acquainted with all our griefs bore all our sins - yours and mine - together on the cross. He being perfect was made imperfection bearing our sins even to death. So that you dear reader can know the kingdom of God now, accept if God's love and grace.

There is life everlasting, one life, not forgotten, known loved cherished in the great heart of God's love. In a kingdom without end or suffering where we are all known. God sees you. He reaches out to you. He gave of all he is to save you and He bore the penalty of the sins of ALL the world so that you can be eternally joined with Him. Now and forever.

Peace my brothers of the world...

I ask you to receive kindly my brothers in Christ. Do not persecute us in ignorance. We love you.

Message to Christians: if you are really good Christians, then teach Tibetans to become the best Buddhists they can be - only THEN will they be fulfulling Christ's message. Because a pure Buddhist and a pure Christian are the SAME, just different words and perspectives. But the outcome, complete union, is the same. Jesus was teaching in a predominantly Hebrew culture and so spoke the language of Hebrew religion. Tibet is Buddhist and so anyone who really cares should try and bring young Tibetans BACK in to their culture instead of the materialism of western culture so many of them are attracted to. Peace be with you all :-)

I cannot agree with what Pema said. Jesus Christ is God, the Creator of the universe, but Buddha is a human, a creation. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, apart from Him, you know no truth, no way and have no life! A Christian should always tell the Truth, not lie. The Truth is that Jesus is the Only true God, Whom must be worshiped. Worshiping Buddha is worshiping false gods and idols. I suggest you read this:

My grandfather was extreme Buddhist but later found bible an essential for living by listening very carefully to the preaching and later learned himself to read and write Nepali words finally able to read the bible himself. The desire to read the word and self exploring the reality of life, he was also able to preach in a fellowship.

I believe that most of the Buddhist believes in SELF, they want to explore the fact themselves. Therefore, prayer is very necessary that they open their self centered mind to search and read the bible.

I'm saddened by the Christian missionaries I've met here in Nepal. I am an educator by training, and find it appalling that young people go into villages without any training and pose as "teachers," only to do little but have small children paint "Jesus beards" on their faces and proffer candy in exchange for promises of allegiance to Jesus. Jesus was not a "soldier" and real Christians do not adhere to the "army" aesthetic offered up on your website. I agree with Pema. As Thich Naht Hanh, one of the greatest peace and human rights activists of our time, shows us in his great book, LIVING BUDDHA, LIVING CHRIST, a good Buddhist and a good Christian are difficult to tell apart: both live by nonviolent principles, refrain from killing, and adhere to ethical conduct in all areas of their lives. I am especially appalled by the "marriage counseling" being offered by your organization, when the divorce rate among "born again" American Christians is higher than that of the rest of the population. Thank goodness for the Jesuit, Episcopalian, Western-funded Buddhist, and non-religious charities that bring real teachers, real education, and a respect for the cultural riches of this region to their work here. And shame on those who lie in the name of all that is holy, pretending to be teachers when they are simply fanatical egomaniacs.

Christianity and Buddhism are not compatible. It is not naive and dangerous to think there is only one way to God. If it was then Jesus would not have claimed to be the only way, and seeing as he is God himself, then he should know. It is more dangerous to think there are many roads, that each person has their own path and individual journey of faith to obtain salvation from whatever is their experience of 'god'.

It is not for me or anyone else to judge whether or not a person is saved.
Its God's responsibility. We will all face his judgement and the writer of Hebrews reminds us that it is Christ who will bring salvation from God's wrath: Hebrews 9:26-28 But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

The heart of the teaching of the Buddha (lit., “awakened one”) is the Four Noble Truths. The First Truth states that all existence is characterized by dukkha (“suffering,” “pain,” or “discontent”). The Second Truth holds that the root cause of suffering is tanha (lit., “thirst” but often translated “desire”). It is not simply wrong desires but desire itself that results in suffering. The Third Truth says that when desire ceases, then suffering ceases as well. The Fourth Truth introduces the Noble Eightfold Path, which sets out ideals in moral self-discipline, meditation, and wisdom that provide the way to eliminate desire and suffering.

The Buddha held that everything that exists is characterized by anitya, or impermanence, and is continually coming into being and passing out of being as a result of certain interrelated causal conditions. A 12-link chain of causation (the “wheel of life”) explains how these causal conditions produce people’s mistaken perceptions of enduring realities.

The Buddha rejected contemporary Hindu views about the reality of an enduring self (atman), an indestructible soul that passes from one life to another. He claimed that belief in a substantial self is mistaken and results in the grasping or desire that produces suffering. What is normally thought of as a person is merely the ever-changing combination of psychophysical forces—the “Five Aggregates” of matter, sensations, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness. At death, what passes from this life to the next is not a soul but simply the cumulative karmic effects of actions, which then produce in the next life the (mistaken) perception of an enduring person.

Only nirvana is permanent, unconditioned, and ultimately real. Nirvana is not heaven. Rather, it is a state that is realized when the fires of desire and the conditions producing rebirth are eliminated. Since it is the absence of suffering in any form, it is a state of utter bliss.

Buddhism today is divided into two major groups. Theravada Buddhism, found in Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand, Laos, and Kampuchea, accepts only the writings of the Pali canon as authoritative, emphasizes the Four Noble Truths in attaining nirvana, and generally avoids metaphysical speculation. Early Buddhists rejected Hindu belief in Brahman, and this atheism is retained in Theravada. Moreover, each person is said to be responsible for attaining his or her own enlightenment (“self-effort”), which is restricted to the few who can master the required disciplines.

Mahayana Buddhism is today found in China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, and the West and includes a wide variety of schools. It has developed its own sacred texts and metaphysical doctrines. The traditional understanding of nirvana as release from the cycle of rebirths was largely replaced by Mahayana in China, with an emphasis on attaining enlightenment in this life. Whereas Theravada Buddhism emphasized self-effort in attaining nirvana, Mahayana opened the way to the masses by acknowledging a vast multitude of spiritual beings, such as the bodhisattvas, who assist in the quest for enlightenment. Moreover, the Pure Land schools, the most popular form of Buddhism in Japan today, teach that rebirth in the Pure Land (a kind of Buddhist paradise) is possible, not by one’s own efforts but solely by relying on the compassion, merit, and “other power” of the Amida Buddha.

Whereas Theravada Buddhism regards Gautama largely as an extraordinary human being who attained enlightenment, Mahayana developed the doctrine of the Three Bodies of the Buddha (Trikaya). The ultimate reality is the Dharmakaya, or the Law Body, an all-inclusive Buddha essence sometimes identified with the Void or Emptiness (sunyata). The many enlightened buddhas and bodhisattvas constitute the Sambhogakaya, or Body of Bliss. The Nirmanakaya, or Transformation Body, refers to the man Gautama as a specific historical manifestation of the universal Buddha nature.

I worked in Kathmandu and Dharamsala in the hospitals and the clinics for several years. I attended Bhuddist services and lived in a monastery. I believed in what I was taught and considered becoming a monk to live and work with these people for the remainder of my life. But a dramatic event prevented me from taking my vows. And by the grace of God I was led back to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and my life was saved. Praise be to GOD and GOd bless the work of these good people.

4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:4-6) This verse is very real as to how satan has blinded all people so they can't SEE the GLORY OF CHRIST. Let us ask the LORD OF THE HARVEST to reveal Himself to the Tibetans all over the world for I believe that they are worshiping the "UNKNOWN GOD". I just started studying with a friend who is a refugee after talking about people burning themselves for the sake of their country and I told her that the God that we are studying will not allow anyone to kill themselves so I shared John 10:10 which open our study together. Let us pray that God will open for us conversations that will lead them to want to know tha God that we know of Whom the Tibetans still need to KNOW. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”[a] made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. Let us pray that Jesus who is the Light will shine among the Tibetans from the Dalai Lama to simplest and youngest Tibetan all over the world to bring them out of this darkness (blindbess, His Light to shine over their hearts to receive the knowledge of God;s glory among Christians who are reaching out to them. For we do not preach ourselves but Christians being Jesus' image on earth... Let us be Galatians 5:22-23 carriers.

I give God the glory for getting this opportunity to share my burden with brethren on Tibet. For 15 years I have been praying daily for the salvation of the people and the healing of the land. The burden for the Tibetians was received in 1996 December when I was in Derahdun, India. Since I returned to my country , Nigeria, I have been praying for divine networking for the work in that field. I have a strong burden for this land which has made me to love them with a passion. Like the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali saw a great light in Isaiah 9:1-2, so shall it happen in Tibet if the Lord tarried. As I look forward for a divine network team with this burden, please my mail address is: cyril_jarumai@yahoo.com

Hi Tsering,
My brothers and sisters in Christ. Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Its amazing when I c God words being fullfilled...He is mighty... n able. We must understand, we should be available for Him who created n made us...yet, He is the one who will n can do. He is able n more than able and in Him we ll become competent. Bible says...Horse is made ready for the battle but victory belongs to Him and moreover He says...Be still n know that He is God. His ways are not our ways...n He never sleeps n slumber...Our life can only bright life in the other....therefore...if the dead doesnt rise up we should keep a check on ourself first. For God can work only when we allow Him to work in us...love you all. May His name be glorified.

If buddhism is superior than christianity or any other religion then explain to me how this is. It is easy to say a matter, but another thing to prove it. You have proven nothing so far other than the fact that you are arrogant. Does not Buddhism require humility? If you have this knowledge and do not share it with others are you not doing an injustice to others and therefore continuing the cycle? Are you not hindering your own ascension?

I have read all comments thusfar, and there is one thing that those that are complaining about christian presence in Tibet seem to mix up: As christians we are not supposed to try to convert people to christianity or to destroy their culture or to teach them western materialism! We are only to show people that God loves them and wants to offer them forgiveness through Jesus Christ. If people want to follow Jesus, that doesn't mean they should do that in a western way! Tibetan believers can do that in a way that fits them and that serves their country. May Tibet be set free from all darkness and suffering!

Bill,
Your first sentence implies that what they're saying is true - the idea that Tibetan Buddhists exist within a "spiritual darkness" is based upon the assumption that unless one is Christian, they are misguided and backward.

How is destroying Tibetan cultural and religious integrity just "disagreeing" with them? Since when is trying to convert and squash someone's beliefs just simple "disagreement"? And if it is just disagreement, who are they to do that?

I don't think my beliefs are relevant here, but I will tell you where my humility is - I respect anyone's right to practice their religion as they wish - but with the expectation that they not force it on anyone else.

I am so glad in reaching to this website and reading messages from dear brother Tibetans and missionaries.
I am also Tibetan as my mother is Tibet. Humbly, I also want to write a few words concerning above conversation. Of course, we are not trying to change Tibet's rich and respective culture. We are not working to impose Western culture on Tibet. here are one example to explain why we want people to accept Jesus Christ, the Creator God while Buddhists are living in own religion without trying others to convert to Buddhism. (A person saw a pile of precious stones in a jungle. He wants to share those precious stones to his villagers. So he tells about it to all villagers and tell them how to go there.) Just like that, we have found Jesus is the only way to the blissful heavenly realm and we share about it to all human beings to get there through Christ Jesus. Jesus Christ is not western God, not Jewish God but of all of human beings including for our Burmese and Tibetans. I pray Tibetans may see God's salvation. thanks to all.

Effie,

I would think if you had a clear understanding of Christainity you would understand that Jesus Christ is God incarnate and that God transcends all cultures. Cultures are a construct, we as humans have created since the fall in order to make sense of our world. Christainity is not western nor eastern. Christ was born as a Jew and revealed himself through the Jewish people to all nations.He also declares in the Bible that he will have for himself a people out of every nation, tribe, and tongue. To the glory of his name. God himself has created ethnic diversities and cultures. Man has created religions to , once again, try and make him serve them by creating their gods in there own image. They then incorporate these ideas into their cultural thinking. In manmade religions you must do one of wo things to reach heaven(whatever concept taht is.)either you earn your way or you are god yourself. Christianity denies both, and says that it depnds on receiveing what Christ(God incarnate) has done on our behalf by faith(trust) in what he has done for us. Waht bhave any of these other religions done for us? They are all man centered not God centered.

Guys i dont know much about tibet at all really nothing at all but i was in prayer the other day and God told me he the principality's of tibet where going to be torn down. My only thought on people out there ministering to these people is that our battles are not against flesh and blood but the powers and principality's around us. Preach like paul did 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 You and all the church needs to start walking like the people in the bible did you can talk someones ears off about God but once god shows up and bam a healing or miracle takes place their eyes get off you and onto him. I have been seeing alot of healings latley. If you want to walk in the power and Authority We should you have to walk completely under Gods Authority in all your ways. A little leven levens the whole lump. You also need the holy spirit alot of people believe that they have the holy spirit just because they are Christians not so look at acts 8:12-21 these where believers that had been baptized in water that had not yet been baptized in fire and filled with the holy spirit Simon also believed and did not receive it because he had an evil spirit would have prostituted Gods gift for money. If you want to get into the kind of relationship with God like paul did then if you would take it to heart go to 20000souls.com and take the discipleship course its got alot of meat in it. start at one and end at 48 would be well worth your time. Remember we where called to make disciples not converts and We where also called to be sons of God which would be someone who the Father looks back and sees him walking in the footsteps he laid our for them to take. A child is somone who God has taught right from wrong but still in occasion has to be chastened and corrected because he is disobedient. While a babe is someone who doesn't know right from wrong. blessings guys walk like sons ill be praying for yall.

Dear Tibetan friends, I have lived in Tibet (in the Kham area and also in the Lhasa speaking area.) I would like to apologize for the rude or on-loving way many comments were written by Christians. I do believe that Jesus is the saviour of all people. Jesus loves Tibetan people & wants them to know Him. I also know Tibetan Christians who keep their cultural identity & respect and love their family & do not become "western" because of their faith. Please investigate who Jesus is from The Bible. If you have been upset or hurt by us western Christians please accept my apology. Often we jump to the conclusion that people want to debate about different religions. If this debate is understood by Tibetans as rude or arrogant this causes barriers to truly seeking Jesus. Dear Christians, if you truly want to help Tibetan people please search for them in your community, if they are not there, move to a place they are (including Tibet!) and share this Jesus you love & are following. Dear Tibetans We believe that Jesus is alive and cares about you and I and our families, your & our communities and cultures. Please talk to other Christians about who Jesus is. May Jesus' love & salvation be known throughout Tibet and the whole world. Jon

hello christian friend, even though i know bible what it wrote? i respected bible, but there is no eternal truth. even though conversion is not message of christ. he said, just spread my words, not conversion. even though lord buddha prophecised the jesus. i am not blamming all the missionaries, but many missionaries try to convert tibetan or other communities to christian. even thogh you all said, buddhist is darkness and bondage, i never agree for that. first you tell me which reason buddhist consider as darkness? may be we worship idols rite? please keep in all your mind that buddhist never worship idol, we respect idol, because we feel that god is dwelling us and remember of lord buddha teaching. even though you all worship cross. i went many churches, not only catholic, also baptiz church, they all keep one cross. i feel so funy why they christian missionaries doing. before lord buddha prophecised, day will come, my teaching will lost, but my words never lost. i think now time will time. please kindly stop conversion. again i remind all christian missionaries conversion is not message of christ. better you all think again and research what is truth? i feel shame newly tibetan believers, may be you think christain religion is light of way, but you all doing mistake. my uncle is missionaries, without proper sharing bible to tibetan and me, forcefully he baptize us. thank God that, lord buddha call me back. dont think that these all are doing by satan ok. first we have search truth. buddhist is only way to get truth. again i humble request all christian missionaries to stop conversion. try to understand all religion properly and then speak out. keep in your mind, buddhist never worship idol, we are doing because only remember lord buddha teaching. may lord buddha guide you all and speak to you all..............

What are some of the promises of Buddha? God does not want any one person to have any idols. The significance of the Cross is to remind all people Jesus paid our sin debt in full "Past, Present, and Future". Conversion ???? Its the Good News.... God is not attainable as we are all sinners...so God sent His only Begotten Son as a ransome....
All God wants is your heart, love , hope and faith in His Son. Coversion, yes! Heaven and Hell are very real, Eternity is very real!

I am not chritian, but I respect it as I do to all religions. But I think if you believe that God has created you, then you must believe that God has created your brain for a purpose. Use it and combine it with heart. Only then you can see what the God really wants you to do in this world. I don't think any god is as narrow minded as many humans are. Just like you want to help people with poverty, help Tibetans who are trying to preserve a unique culture that teaches the same message that Christ taught.

At the outset,accept my greetings from India.We are seeking the prayers and blessings of Lord Buddha,and now I send the prayer request to you to pray to Lord Buddha or the early marriage of my son George .Here are details.


After a long period of uncertainity,a marriage proposal came for our son George from the parents of a girl named Shruthi and we have accepted it.The next move has to come from her parents,especially from her father ,but we don't know whether they will reply to proceed or not.We request you to pray for the marriage between our son George and the girl mentioned Shruthi ,for which the girl's parents has to take a decision,soon and inform us.We see the marriage proposal as a result of our prayers to Almighty and our humble request is that if God willing,let my son George and the girl Shruthi enter into happy matrimony and lead a happy married life.I have full faith in Lord Buddha and so I believe that Almighty will hear our prayers and grant it as desired by us,parents.Hope you reply.Take care.



Regards

Hello,

Jesus can change your soul and spirit. He can heal your body and mind with his body and blood in Communion. All you have to do is pray, "Lord Jesus I invite you into my heart to be my lord and savior. I repent of my sins and ask you to live in my heart and heal my body soul and spirit." For the individual the Christian life is very difficult on this earth, but the reward is mostly in Heaven. Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life. No one comes to The Father except by Him. No one can see into Hell or the Lake of Fire, so no one should try to imagine them. If your eye is good your whole body will be full of light. If your eye is bad your whole body will be full of darkness.

I am saddened by you all argueing over who's reigion and belief system is better!!!
The truth is that Jesus did not come to neither to build a religion nor a system of belief. This so called religious systems only divides and breaks us as a society altogether. He came that we reconcile with the creater, as a son would get back to his father. In a nut shell, there are many religions in the world that we humans have created, and hope the would surfice the need of eternal life, yet we all miss the mark even many christian denominations.
Jesus and paid our price on the cross, so that we woud be reconciled to the Father, in the true sense of father and son RELATIONSHIP and that is what Christianaty is, it not a religion because you cannot buy your salvation, and no good works alone can get us back to the Father. Please accept the free gift of raltionship that Christ Jesus offers!!!!!! thank you

I pray that Tibetans will resist the arrogant evil Christian missionaries who dream of only destroying the Buddha Dharma and every other religion in the world. Christian missionaries are Taliban with a smile. They may be nice on the surface and do seemingly "good" things for show; but the motivation is usually rotten to the core. Coming to Tibet on the coat tails of the Chinese Red Army's destruction of Tibet is evil. It is cultural and religious genocide plain and simple. Tibetans are too smart and will not be fooled...

Tibetans are just too smart for you Christian missionaries. All you want to really do is pave the entire world flat for your "one and only" chosen religion. You are nothing but Taliban with a smile. You may do some "good" works on the surface to win over the weak and the lame, but overall your efforts are entirely unclean and tainted by the ulterior motivation to ruthlessly change a people. You come on the coat-tails of the Communist Red Chinese and their destruction and want only to make the Tibetans exactly like yourselves... Are you enlightened? If Christianity is so good, the truth of it and advantage should radiate to all like the warm rays of the sun in the sky. Please do the right thing and stay out of Tibet. These people have been through enough... There is a solid reason why the Chinese authorities quietly encourage your work is because both you and they equally desire the destruction of the Buddha Dharma and Tibetan identity... enough said

It's very nice that people share God's love with Tibetan people. But before sharing God's love you should learn Tibetan culture and religion. There is no the best religion and the worst religion in the world. it's a good religion if it's brings happiness and peace to the world. I met so many missionaries in Tibet. But very sad that they always deny other religions even though they don't anythings about other religions. I also hope missionaries learn how to respect other culture and religion.

How embarrassing

I stumbled on your site because I hope I may one day help repair the land of Tibet, and witness the revival of the the deeply spiritual Buddhist culture in freedom and in national sovereignty. Why your site? Well I've been a practicing Christian for over 45 years. I have missed worship on Sunday exactly eight times in those years. So of course I don't want to stop worshiping and praying wherever I go in the world. I wanted to know if I would find a church for me, not if I could find a church to use as a weapon. Only a complete ignorant vandal would treat Tibetan Buddhism with anything less than awe and respect. The PRC are ignorant vandals and worse. They make the Mafia look good. But what have I found? A discreet congregation of catholics, and otherwise a load if untrained ignorant bigots who talk jargon, understand nothing and do not respect the religion of others. Desolation

Many of those who have written on here against the spread of Christianity would have very strong arguments if Christians are spreading lies and making people believe something that is not true. But it is actually the opposite which is true. Christians want people to know the truth, not so that they can have a reward, or bring glory to themselves, but because of God's desire for all to come to Him, to know Him, and to glorify Him. That is why Jesus Christ came into the world. God's heart is broken because so many people are lost and believing lies, and they don't know who He is because of their sin. Jesus came to give his life, to lay it down in order to take away our sins. They killed Jesus because they thought he was speaking blasphemy (claiming to be one with God). But really, Jesus gave his life willingly and bore our sins on the cross. Jesus was tortured and crucified on a cross. He said, "Everyone who believes in me, as the Scriptures declare, "Springs of living water will flow from their hearts welling up to eternal life," (John 7:3smilies/cool.gif. The Tibetans are thirsty for this living water, and God is giving it to them through the knowledge of Jesus our Savior. Are you thirsty? Come to the waters today and drink freely.

There is no best realign and worst religion. It's a good religion if it's brings peace and happiness to human being and world. I respect God but I don't like missionaries forced people to become believers. This is reason why Moslem hate Christians.
I believe in Buddhism because it can give me better explanation of our life and world.
I also let you know we Tibetan people are not thirsty for living water. We are happy and enjoy about our life. You don't have to feel sad for us. May Buddha bless you !

All this arguing about whether Christianity or Buddhism is right is enlightening to me about both sides. Did people know that Jesus might have studied at Hemis Monastery in Tibet during his lost years? Both Tibetan Buddhism and Catholicism believe in heaven, hell, purgatory, good spirits, and evil spirits. Both have their saints. Communism commuted atrocities in Tibet and had murderous intentions when they entered Tibet. Let us follow those people who respect others and have intentions of doing no harm and not destroying religious beliefs that are good. Look inside yourself and set your sites on Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, or any other saint who is a good example to follow. God is love and truth together.

Greetings to any and all who are of the Lord Jesus and belong also to the Heavenly Father and their wonderful Holy Spirit. See, the thing is christian is not a religion, its a new creation by God. It's why Jesus said to enter the kingdom of God, one must be first made born again(this is by God doing it, not us choosing it on our own nor by working hard for it) Book of Romans 9:16
We who the Lord called and made us into christians aren't western or eastern in so much as geography is concerned. In fact to be honest, God's early new testament saints/christians , The gospel of God was first preached to Israel, then not all that longer to Asia minor. This was around 50 Ad, over 1,900 years ago. As nobody had planes back then one had to go by land or by boat. Even by 75 AD or so, the farthest west that Paul the apostle got to and his helpers was to Spain. America and England, what one thinks of western nations, (being that they are in the west earthwise would have came later. Living in america, we probably didn't have God send any missionaries here until after 90 AD, book of Revelations is the last book and God didn't mention americas by name in any of the epistles. Fact is the gospel was preached to Tibet or what Tibet was called before 100 AD First. Yet i wouldn't call his gospel Eastern, even though you live in the east (landwise). Most important is that one believes that the Heavenly Father sent Jesus, his Son(who also is God, the Son) to earth in a created body that the Father made for him, to die for our sins, so by faith in what Jesus Christ has done for us spilling his own blood as an atoning sacrifice, that we could be made right with God the Father, and as a result of that, that our sins would be wiped out forever and no longer counted against us, no matter what we used to be (any or no religion).

Ok, I'm a Christian and bottom line is, there can only be one truth. Whether it's atheism, religion, anything, there can only be one. Explore, do your research and see which one is. In the endgame, anything passed me by, but Jesus different. For you Tibetans go learn about Buddhist converts. Christians, learn about Tibet ladydadya blah blah and if you didn't know, Christianity was based off the Middle East...

I stumbled upon this site and i'm just surprised how people are shamelessly preaching despite many others pointing out to respect each other's religion. Bottom line is, they just can't respect other religion! Leave the people at peace. Your religion is at war with Islam. You guys please preach to each other and resolve your problems before you go about taking advantage of people's poverty to shove your religion down their throat. Save the souls of the Christians in your LGBT community since your religion claim that it's a sin. Preach to the people who are going about in their violent ways. Preach to the ones who are on a killing spree. Talk to them about Jesus and history. Don't recruit by the numbers. There's no score point here. Just make sure that the Christians who have lost their path are on track again. Focus on solving the problems in your Christian community. Be a good human. If you want to help others in crisis, do it without any hidden agenda. Be happy that you helped change one life without any motive. That itself would earn you a place in heaven (if there is one)
