Virtual Homeland (Multilingual Site) (English
only): The official name of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's
Tibetan Government-in-Exile is the "Central Tibetan Administration"
(CTA). The CTA was first established on 29 April 1959 in Mussoorie
as the continuation of the Tibetan Government in Tibet. In May
1960, the CTA was moved to Dharamsala in north-west India. The
Tibetan people, both in and outside Tibet, recognise the CTA as
their sole and legitimate government. It is also being increasingly
recognised as the legitimate government of the Tibetan people
by parliaments around the world. The CTA spearheads the Tibetan
people's struggle to regain their freedom. It also looks after
the welfare of some 130,000 Tibetans in exile. The CTA functions
according to the modern democratic principles of its constitution,
which is adopted by the popularly-elected legislative assembly
known as the Assembly of Tibetan People's Deputies. His Holiness
the Dalai Lama, reviewing the website before launch, said that
he was greatly encouraged to see information on Tibet in so many
languages. "With the sudden proliferation of Tibet-related Web
sites, it is my hope that a virtual Tibetan community can be created
in cyberspace, to be freely accessible to everyone interested
in Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan culture and Tibet's present tragic
fate," the Dalai Lama said in a message on the launch. TibetNet
is thought to be the first large Web site published in Tibetan.
