TibetNet-Tibetans' 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.
