I realize there are more who are imprisoned but it reminds me of the starfish story of the child that kept throwing in the water every starfish it saw. A man said, why do you do this there will be more starfish tomorrow and many in fact you'll not be able to reach in time. But the child said, but for this one starfish that I saved it meant a lot. So this is how we must look at it, for this man and his family it means everything he got out.

Wonderful news.

I feel sure that this is just the beginning of an approach of healing and unity between the Chinese and the people of the Tibetan Plateau, which the Chinese believe is truly a part of China.... since it has been through more of the history of these regions than not.

There is evidence that the Chinese are becoming more receptive to their spiritual past. They are applying the TAO to many of the government's environmental decisions.

It is also well known that there is a more open attitude to all Buddhist practices. For instance, on the Chinese Island of Putuo Shan (which is considered the birth place and location of three of the historic reincarnations of Kwan Yin, the female Buddha), the government has allowed the reopening of all monasteries, temples and shrines which Mao closed by force in 1946.

All of the news I hear from China lately is so encouraging. Thank you, Nancy, for some more encouraging news.
