When most people think of Tibet, they think of a beautiful country high up in the clouds. The people that are from this land are known for their great respect for life and go to great lengths to avoid harming even the smallest of critters that inhabit this Earth. So is the way of this Buddhist country which was once home to his Holiness the Dalai Lama.
This fact made it easy for the Chinese government to invade and take over the state. A fact that puts a very dark mark on the county’s reputation in the eyes of the world.
However, what most people don’t know, is that before Buddhism took it’s hold in this enchanted land the country was a warring nation.
So fierce were it’s fighters that on the 12th of November in the year 764 they took over the capital of the mighty Tang empire for 15 days before being tricked to flee by a Chinese army pretending to be much larger than it actually was. .
