Even while China after its systematic occupation of Tibet is doing everything to annihilate the Tibetan culture, religion, science, art, etc, His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibetan people, who had to seek political asylum in India in 1959 as part of his efforts for retention of Tibetans precious heritage, established Men-Tsee-Khang in 1961 at Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh. Today after 50 years of its committed services, Sowa Rigpa which ensured the holistic health of Tibetan people for more than three thousand years is now being recognised and accepted world over by the people as well as governments.

Some Indians – not foreigners! – say we wouldn‘t have a garden. Why? Their concept of garden is a design with decorating plants, which have to be bought in gardening shops. 

My concept is different: Nature is the greatest gardener!

Walking through our big Sylvianderland I see a lot of green all around. But then plucking weeds close to the ground I discover tiny flowers in the green, hardly to recognize with the eyes. 
Fascinated I started taking pictures from close; later seeing it enlarged on the computer I was amazed. What a wonderful tiny world we tread down with our feet without having an idea of, saying there is no garden.
