    Maybe the new Chinese road will be called ‘Black Crown Highway’.

    There is no way for Tsurphu Labrang to spin this spate of bad luck as anything but very, very ill timed luck.

    One would think that this is the right time for HHGK to claim political asylum and stay here. It seems a safe bet that if he doesn’t do something like this he is doomed to live as he has- virtually under house arrest. Let’s face it, he will not be allowed to return to Tibet by the Indians any time soon.

    The geopolitical split in the region (demonstrated here- http://toi.in/sRqpUa/a20ei) highlights the deep political divide between India and China and the roles of Russia and Pakistan in bolstering and also antagonizing the situation. No one person, even Karmapa, has the clout or the political prominence (or even a capable team) to effectively navigate this situation.

    He would be better off jumping ship and claiming political asylum and staying here. Interestingly, it is likely that his seeking asylum here would be supported by a Trump State Department as it would be an effective way of saying ‘screw you’ to China.

    We will see how this plays out, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the asylum option is being currently negotiated right now. Karmapa is desperate- why else would he be in hiding? Some say he was spotted in Washington DC last week… …very curious indeed!

    It’s begun! Why else would he be hiding at KTD. Karmapa is seeking political asylum.
