Image: Yak near Yamdrok lake, Tibet: a long-haired bovinae found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia, the Tibetan Plateau and as far north as Mongolia and Russia. The Tibetan economy is dominated by subsistence agriculture. Due to limited arable land, the primary occupation of the Tibetan Plateau is raising livestock, such as sheep, cattle, goats, camels, yaks, dzo, and horses. The Tibetan yak is an integral part of Tibetan life. Permissions* below.

Bunching Tsering, vice president of the International Campaign for Tibet, on a new Tibet bill in Congress, the Tibetan Policy and Support Act of 2019. What Westerners call reincarnation is what Buddhists call the continuum of mindstream; US Congress jumps in to sanction Beijing for interfering in the appointment of high lamas: “the succession or reincarnation of the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan Buddhist leaders is exclusively a religious issue that the Tibetan Buddhist community should decide on. Under the bill, any Chinese officials who attempt to interfere in this process could be subject to targeted sanctions.”

यह दक्षिण मध्य एशिया के हिमालय क्षेत्र, तिब्बत के पठार और सुदूर उत्तर में मंगोलिया और रूस तक पाया जाने वाला एक लंबे बालों वाला जानवर है। तिब्बती अर्थव्यवस्था पर जीविका कृषि का प्रभुत्व है। कृषि योग्य सीमित भूमि के कारण, तिब्बती पठार का प्राथमिक व्यवसाय पशु पालन है जैसे भेड़, मवेशी, बकरी, ऊंट, याक, और घोड़े। तिब्बती याक तिब्बती जीवन का एक अभिन्न हिस्सा है।
