Satellite Photos Show Devastation in Tibet Earthquake

Satellite photos of a portion of Jyekundo, provided by DigitalGlobe, show the extent of destruction. Only a small fraction of structures remain standing, and all of these are damaged. Friends of ours in the region report that not a single stupa remains undamaged, and many have been completely destroyed.

"Seeing each other, they will stretch out to each other in sympathy. Marveling to themselves, they will say: 'I see a living person and not a dead one.' "

--96th Canto, Padma bKa'i Thang
