While not strictly spiritual or religious, this great documentary does give some insight into the world of Tibet, its people, and Tibetan monastic life.

In the 19th century, as it became aware of the colonial designs of European power on central Asia, Tibet expelled westerners and closed its frontiers. As its isolation deepened, so did Tibet’s allure and mystique. But in the early 1900s, Francis Younghusband, a British colonialist, managed to penetrate the hidden city of Lhasa and bring to an end the country’s years of isolation.

Thanks for discussing your ideas in this article. The other element is that whenever a problem arises with a laptop or computer motherboard, people should not consider the risk with repairing the item themselves because if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to the complete laptop. In most cases, it is safe to approach any dealer of a laptop for your repair of that motherboard. They’ve already technicians who may have an skills in dealing with pc motherboard issues and can carry out the right analysis and conduct repairs.
