Lovely real life image, thank you for the information too, it's a shame that a belief system and anyone who follow it has to be tortured, exiled, or killed over. Buddhism being one of the peaceful ones. Alas, it's very sad Sad One day soon, he and his family shall hopefully be let free. Like the way you have brought out the bong man. Smile

An outstanding and highly interesting and informative insight into these rather remarkable people. The video clip certainly enhanced this, and as for the photographic image, well that is something really special. Certainly a pleasure watch, listen and admire.

Thankyou Leilani & Nathan.

Whether a spiritual person or not, its hard not to be moved by the kidnapping ( & probably murder) of a six year old boy..and his complete family.
.................... Joanna Lumley done the narrative for the documentary...I would have liked to have thought she may have done something again a bit more up to date...it's entirely possible, that with China having the olympic games in four years, that they may even want to start with a clean sheet..the other side of the coin, is that they will imprison even more "political prisoners" to avoid looking bad should anyone speak out within the next four years.

Increasing the colour area works a treat Gareth. I actually like both and see them as separate entities ... your narrative is a sad reminder of the wrongs wrought on the Tibetan people and even though the Olympics have been and gone in China, nothing has changed ... I thought I read that they have their own Panchen Lama. As I have been having comp problems, I will come back for the video, I really enjoyed the music in the last one ... Carol GrinGrinGrin

Hi Carol..China refused to accept the monks / dalai lamas choice of reincarnation..so they established their own Panchen Lama in Tibet.... a little like a puppet government.
Best of luck with your computer Sad

Hi Andrew, it does..thanks to Andy for the suggestion..though I 'didn;t have the competence to put his original processing idea into being, this has been a fair compromise I think Smile
