  Tibetan Mass Movement - TYC
Although the Tibetan people did not agree to the terms of the agreement, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the political and spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, saw the agreement as a necessary compromise to reconcile with the PRC government in order to avoid continued violence.
The failure of these demonstrations to achieve all of their goals is due in large part to the lack of voluntary participation by the Tibetan people on a massive scale.
Thus, as the Tibetan nation is on the verge of extinction and Tibetans everywhere face many hardships, it is time for all Tibetans to come together and participate in a massive public movement in order to bring the Tibetan struggle to a new level.

 frontline: dreams of tibet: understanding tibetan buddhism: introduction
Tibetan Buddhism has no gods in the Western sense of the term-the deities of Tibetan Buddhism are buddhas, literally "awakened ones," who in past lives were ordinary people, but who have transcended the ordinary through their meditations and realizations.
When Tibetans chant a mantra associated with a particular buddha, they are not simply asking for the blessings and aid of the buddha-the final goal of the practice is to become buddhas themselves, since buddhas are sentient beings who have actualized the highest potential that we all possess.
Tibetan Buddhism is a multilayered tapestry comprised of many different strands, and anyone hoping to write an introduction to this system is faced with the daunting task of sorting through centuries of history, huge amounts of textual material, and multiple lineages of teaching and practice.
