  • Tibet is the land of mysteries. It is not only about religion and occultism: its history remains largely hidden. This book disproves some of the erroneous views on the history and religion of the Tibetans. Tibet has never been a part of China. At the time when China was an inalienable part of the Mongolian Yuan Empire and Manchu Qing Empire, Tibet was a separate country dependent on the Mongol and Manchu emperors, but never lost its statehood. A widespread view that Tibet was an integral part of neighboring empires is related to an ancient Chinese concept of the emperor’s universal power. Chinese claims to the “legacy” of the Mongol and Manchu empires are unfounded. Incorporating the name of the states into the “dynastic history” concept ties sovereign states of other nations to Chinese dynastic history. The inclusion of Tibet into the People’s Republic of China was not legitimate. Tibet is an occupied country.
