Dear editor. It's happy to read this site,but unfortunately it's all looks like to translate from the sources of english-publishments,consisted by the foreigned views and without real tibetan views. Would please read and write some truly tibetan texts,for instance,What is the "Lamaism"?and What is the real meaning of rebirth or "Dalai Lama or Panchen's title"in the tibetan history? Wish you've done truly commemts!

Comment: I was unaware of the history of Tibet, I was moved by my own enlightment. Thank you.
Suggestions: I recently saw the movie 7 Years in Tibet in the US. I had never really heard of the history of Tibet and its culture. I began to search the internet looking for more and more information about the land. I don't know why but the history seems to be such a clear contrast of good verse evil. There are not many countries that can say that. Thank you for providing such a good overview of Tibet.
Future Topics: I would like to hear you opinion on the movie 7 Years in Tibet? Is it accurate? What was excluded from the story?

Comment: Thank you for allowing your readers to offer comments
Suggestions: You have done marvelous job in organizing this web site, particularly from a Chinese perspective. I have one comment on your Chronology of Tibetan history. As far as I understand, Chinese conquest of Tibet was not only done by the People's Republic of China, but also happened during the era of Republic of China (1911-1949) and even during the last dynasty of China. The current human rights issues in Tibet may also be the continuation of Chinese conquest of Tibet since their earliest contact(s). Tibet has a long history and rich Buddhist culture. I think your chronology of Tibet is based on the history of the People's Republic of China. It needs addition. Thank you for your generosity in taking in my comments.

Comment: What can the public do to pressure the Chinese Government?
Suggestions: More on the Dalai Lama, the "official" Panchen Lama and the UN standpoint.
Future Topics: How much pressure is being put upon the Chinese Government ? Is it true that the Chinese are trying to "bribe" Tibetan loyalty by re-building many temples and monasteries destroyed during the invasion in 1949?

This is a web site full of resources. Thank you all for your efforts!
Suggestions: In Taiwan there are very few materials on the Chinese-English translation of Tibetan Buddhist terminologies. If you could further enrich that section, it would be of great help to many.

Since the name of your web site is Mandala, could you give more introduction of the mandala itself?
Suggestions: I have been collecting information regarding the mandala in the recent years. Most of my materials are the books written by Mr. Tong-Choa Tsai and information from some Buddhist dictionaries. I was glad to find a related web site, but didn't see references on the mandala. That's really too bad. However, you have put in a lot of thoughts in the material collection and editing. It's very nice!
Future Topics: Information related to the mandala. Meditation methods based on the mandala.

For the Sakya portion of your site, "sa" means earth, and "skya" means grey color. "sa-skya" means grey earth. The locations of most Sakya monastaries have vast grey land (still true thesedays). The walls of the monastaries are painted with three colors to represent the vajra colors. Because of its multi-colors, the Han people refer to it as the "multi-color sect". Just for your reference.
