Disponível em http://youtu.be/rANWAzPRJjQ

Provides a view of Tibet and the Tibetan people, focusing on ancient agricultural and social traditions that provide unity and self-sufficiency in remote mountain communities. The holy city of Lhasa boasts tourist sites, such as the market, the Jokhang Temple, and the Potala Palace. Evidence of the Communist takeover is everywhere, including shopping malls, restaurants where Chinese is spoken, and in the countryside where Tibetan forests have been ravaged to support the Chinese economy. Introduces Dalai Lama, and his message of world peace advises Tibetans to promote a spirit of nonviolence, in spite of Chinese abuses.
