Dharamshala: It is one of those tragic historical paradoxes: the Chinese invade Tibet in the 1950’s and  ‘liberate’ the people, spread economic modernism and quash an ancient ‘backward’ religious culture, instead, or indeed in spite of this, Tibetan Buddhist culture travels to all corners of the globe.

The ' burning man' concept incorporates elements of artistic and political protest which will be aimed at the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles, and perhaps more importantly, at American and World public opinion.
