The Potala, winter palace of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, symbolizes Tibetan Buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of Tibet. The complex, comprising the White and Red Palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on Red Mountain in the centre of Lhasa Valley, at an altitude of 3,700m.

@gaspardxu I would like to see your documentary. Sounds like we had completely different experiences.

@elstorc I spent two weeks there last year shooting a documentary , and even visited many small villages. Actually their culture was ruined by Dalaï Lama when he was the leader, until the government army arrived. ...While everyone see the world in their own eyes.

@gaspardxu I visited Tibet myself 2 years ago. I’ve spoken with Tibetans about their struggle. The day I arrived in Lhasa a nun set herself on fire in protest of how their culture is being stolen from them. I saw first hand how they are denied adequate health care. How their land is stolen from them.

@elstorc please read some history books my friend. And visit Tibet yourself one day, you will see something you thought is completely wrong.
