A Tibetan Shangri-La of happiness

They have a good life in Dharamsala
where they may freely practice their religion
and philosophy in their fantastic library
where at lest 40 percent of all Tibetan literature was saved,
while only 60 percent was destroyed by the Chinese.
Here also they are free to practice their monastic life
after the ruin of 6000 monasteries in Tibet by the Chinese,
here they can live in peace in their perpetual exile,
those Tibetans who were able to escape
from the Chinese attempted genocide on all Tibetans
in which just a fifth of them were actually disposed of
of which half a million were just harmless monks and nuns,
tortured to death in concentration camps
and bombed to death in their own monasteries.
But they lead a good life in Dharamsala
and give a stronger sense of happiness
than I have ever seen among Chinese in China.

I enjoyed this. You see the good in what mostly is a very bad situation.
