Here's a recent newscilipping of continuing oppression
of Tibetan Buddhism by China:
"China Ruins Temples, Evicts Buddhist Nuns -
Beijing: Chinese authorities forced Tibetan Buddhist nuns
from a cave sanctuary and wrecked nearby temples to
curb a religious resurgence in Tibet, a monitoring group
"About 50 nuns, their Buddhist lama, and other
followers were expelled from the temples and meditation
caves at Drag Yerpa in April, the London-based Tibet
Information Network said, citing Tibetan sources and
tourists. The temples were demolished so quickly that the
clerics apparently did not have time to salvage altars."

TREES: I took a walk among the Sequoias in Ca. a
number of years back and have to admit the "vibes"
weren't what I expected. It was rather heavy, sodden and
ancient, but not a "good" ancient, but like something of
the past that it was good to progress beyond. Marvelous
giants! Pine trees seem to have positive or "sattvic"
vibes. I notice Morning Doves usually choose them as
nest sites, and they are very "sattvic" birds.
