China Daily | Updated: 2012-12-10 07:54

True Buddhists do not lie because that is one of the five essential commandments of the Buddhist Sila, or ethics.

That is why when Dharmsala and the 14th Dalai Lama portray the present-day Tibetan inhabited areas as "hell on Earth", where "ethnic genocide" is the norm, their Western sympathizers, thinking they speak as true Buddhists, voluntarily surrender commonsense and lock themselves up in the false "Tibet" the former paint.

That is why, when Dharmsala and the 14th Dalai Lama deny any connection with the self-immolations, they point fingers at the Chinese authorities, or simply the Han Chinese, citing the deaths as evidence of Tibetan "desperation" against "Chinese rule".
