Can a Tibetan be a Christian?


Many people think that if a Tibetan becomes a Christian, it is impossible to be a Tibetan. People think this way because Tibetan culture and Buddhism are so closely related.


A Tibetan Christian does not have to give up being a Tibetan. There are many Tibetans who are not Buddhist. Some do not practice any religion, some are Bon, some Muslim and some are Christian. So Tibetan Christians practice Christianity but live their daily life as Tibetans, eating Tibetan food, singing Tibetan songs, respecting their family and community, and so on.
