Many of the descriptive sections below utilize the maps in ways to sharpen student's understanding of China's geography.

The search for a tulku, Erik Curren reminds us, has not always been conducted in that purely spiritual mode portrayed in certain Hollywood films. “Sometimes monastic officials wanted a child from a powerful local noble family to give the cloister more political clout. But it does not indicate that one can board a train to Tibet only in these cities. Finally, let it be said that if Tibet’s future is to be positioned somewhere within China’s emerging free-market paradise, then this does not bode well for the Tibetans.

The fabulous city of Nagqu has become the perfect example of what Tibet is all about, colorful people, rich culture, pilgrimage sites and spirituality. The monks pray for those who burn themselves. In 2018, when the current leadership of China will enter its second term, it will probably have removed many opposing interest groups and wiped out the deadweight legacy of Hu Jintao-era policy on Tibet. While the newly-named Dalai Lama consolidated the power of his spiritual position, though, the Gtsang-pa Dynasty assumed the royal throne of Tibet in 1562.
