(May 6, 2016) After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) took power in China, the Dalai Lama immediately forfeited Tibetīs sovereignty to China carte blanche. Later he went to Beijing for 11 months and spent time with the top leaders in Beijing.
One thing is certain, Beijing never touched Tibet as long as Dalai Lama lived there. As soon as he had left Tibet, they destroyed the whole country and 99.9% of the temples were ravaged. In the book "A Great Deception: The Ruling Lamas' Policies" Dalai Lama says:
"It was only when I went to China in 1954-55 that I actually studied Marxist ideology and learned the history of the Chinese revolution. Once I understood Marxism, my attitude changed completely. I was so attracted to Marxism, I even expressed my wish to become a Communist Party member... I..went to China to meet chairman Mao. We had several good meetings."
"I have heard chairman Mao talk on different matters and i received instructions from him. I have come to the firm conclusion that the brilliant prospects for the Chinese people as a whole are also the prospects for us Tibetan people; the Path of our entire country is our path and no other.
