China official says Dalai Lama ‘making a fool’ of Buddhism

BEIJING/DHARAMSALA, India (Reuters) – Exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama is “making a fool” of Tibetan Buddhism with suggestions he may not reincarnate, or reincarnate as something inappropriate, and the faithful are not buying it, a Chinese official wrote on Monday.

The comments came as early election results put the leader of the Tibetan government-in-exile, Lobsang Sangay, on course for a second term, part of a strategy to sustain a decades-old struggle for greater autonomy for its Chinese-ruled homeland.

China says the Dalai Lama, who fled into exile in India after a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959, is a violent separatist. He denies espousing violence and says he only wants genuine autonomy for Tibet.

The animosity between the two sides, and their rivalry for control over Tibetan Buddhism, is at the heart of the debate about reincarnation.

Tibetan Buddhism holds that the soul of a senior lama is reincarnated in the body of a child on his death.

China says the tradition must continue and its officially atheist Communist leaders have the right to approve the Dalai Lama’s successor, as a right inherited from China’s emperors.

The Nobel Peace Prize-winning monk has suggested his title could end when he dies. China accuses him of betraying, and being disrespectful towards, the Tibetan religion by saying there might be no more reincarnations.

Writing in the state-run Global Times, Zhu Weiqun, chairman of the ethnic and religious affairs committee of the top advisory body to China’s parliament, said the Dalai Lama had to respect tradition.

“The Dalai Lama continues to proclaim his reincarnation is a ‘purely religious matter’ and something only he can decide, but he has no way to compel admiration from the faithful,” wrote Zhu, known for his hardline stance on Tibet.

“He’s been proclaiming he’ll reincarnate as a foreigner, as a bee, as a ‘mischievous blond girl’, or even proposing a living reincarnation or an end to reincarnation,” he added.

“All of this, quite apart from making a fool of Tibetan Buddhism, is completely useless when it comes to extricating him from the difficulty of reincarnation,” wrote Zhu, who was involved in the past in Beijing’s failed efforts to talk to the Dalai Lama’s representatives.

A senior aide to the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Taklha, said there was “no way” Tibetans would accept a successor appointed by China. “The Chinese are following an absurd agenda and we continue to reject it,” he said.

In 2011, the Dalai Lama called on exiled Tibetans to nominate an elected leader, or “Sikyong”, to lead the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA). Sangay was on track to win re-election with over 65 percent backing in the March 20 vote.

“I hope to do much better. Both on political terms, by holding dialogue with the Chinese, and working on welfare issues in the next five years,” he told Reuters.

China does not recognise the CTA, which is based in India’s Himalayan town of Dharamsala and represents nearly 100,000 exiled Tibetans living in 30 countries including India, Nepal, Canada and the United States.

A commentary

The commentary below was submitted by a member of the Tibetan community who wishes to remain anonymous due to the potential backlash they may experience as a result of penning an article of this nature. Although published here, it does not necessarily represent the views of this blog site. 

 


 

The article does not say anything new per se and it’s a rehash of old stories. I see their strategy as using a world renown brand like Reuters to regularly portray China as a bully.

This article seems to be preparing the world for perhaps an impending succession of the Tibetan leadership. It could be that all these articles are sent into circulation for that purpose.

If we were to respond, it would be to steer attention into its right focus i.e. state that it’s not really about the Dalai Lama versus the Chinese government. This 50 year old rivalry has stained the true practice of Buddhism and also neglected the future of the exiled Tibetans. By pointing the finger at China all the time, the real problem has avoided attention.

We will say this is merely politics and show that both sides are still mixing religion and politics. But China does not hide its politics and is bound by a need to keep a vast country consisting of many tribes to work in harmony.

The Tibetan leadership on the other hand disguises its hand and pretends to be about Buddhism but in fact the religion is a tool.

Looking at the 50 year history in exile, how much have the Tibetan leadership done for Buddhism?

We may even venture to propose that the Dalai Lama’s Dorje Shugden ban is intended to create dissension and unrest in the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR) and hence problems for China. It’s a political move and has been successful. China cannot afford unrest especially in view of its ongoing issues with Taiwan, Hong Kong and the regions along the Sino-Indian border. The Dalai Lama knows that and yet does not hesitate to gamble the religion as a political move.

I think one need not side China to highlight that Tibetan leadership is the more cunning of the two.

In fact, with the way the Tibetan leadership have been bewitching the global community we see that the International Shugden Community (ISC) protests are in fact the last bastion to protect the sanctity of the religion and nothing to do with politics. And apart from China’s quarrel with the Dalai Lama, we see that Tibet under the Dalai Lama is still very much a feudal theocracy pretending to be a democracy. If we put China factor for a while and look at the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) then it’s not a gruesome picture but a more accurate one when not overshadowed by geopolitics.

In summary we don’t side with China and say both are bad, but the CTA is inflicting the most damage on the religion and taking the whole world for a fool. Don’t get me wrong as I don’t have any negative feelings towards the Dalai Lama, but there are many within the exiled Tibetan communities around the world who do not agree with the Dalai Lama’s middle way, style of governance where religion and state are intermixed, the Dorje Shugden controversy not resolving amicably, and the Dalai Lama’s government not making firm attempts to reach out to Beijing. Beijing is our hope for betterment of Tibetans inside Tibet. As generous as many countries have been to accept Tibetan refugees, we can do nothing for the six millions Tibetans in Tibet. That is up to China. We have to make concerted effort to make friends with China regardless of the West penalizing China on human rights abuses, the same countries who then turn around and sign trillion dollar deals with China.

Within the Tibetan communities my thoughts echo among the young and modern Tibetans who are held back by the elders for speaking out as it is seen as ‘against’ the Dalai Lama therefore bad karma and/or unpatriotic. Platforms like this website www.tsemrinpoche.com dare to voice the truth and what many Tibetan youths are thinking but not voicing on their own or openly because there will be backlash from our feudalistic exiled Tibetan leaders. I commend www.tsemrinpoche.com for the courage. Saying the Dalai Lama’s style of governance is feudal and needs to change has nothing to do with my respect and love for the Dalai Lama himself. He just does not comprehend the style of government we need now but that does not mean the Dalai Lama is bad. Tibetans outside of Tibet can see good governments and how they operate but our exiled government under the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala (affectionately called Dhasa) does not move with the times.

It’s been 50 years and there is no sign of a ‘deal’ being reached between Dhasa and China. All this while the Tibetans in Tibet linger and our refugees around the world assimilate and in the process lose our culture, religion and language. I am one of them that is losing my culture and language. I don’t even speak my native Tibetan well now I have assimilated into a country where everyone speaks English from birth.

Sadly,
Tibet Lover

    This comment by Suzy on Rinpoche’s YouTube channel is a sign of change in the people’s understanding and perception of the holy Dorje Shugdenpractice-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s. It has been twenty years of negative propaganda but now many people are beginning to see past the false rhetoric to see the divine goodness of the Protector. This is something to rejoice in.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    I think CTA is ineffective to fight for the rights of the Tibetans, with the Dalai Lama still perhaps influencing in the shadows. 60 years of Tibetans in exile being played like pawns by CTA, yet what do the CTA have to show for it. I guess Tibetans in exile had better start planning their future and their next move because there isn’t anyone on the Kashag will genuinely help them without any side benefit for oneself in the picture.

    Sometimes fiction, like some of those portrayed in movies, yes it is exaggerated and stretched somewhat, but one thing that stood out from watching all sorts of movies is that, the power others have onto us, is what we have given to them. I suppose this applies to American Soldiers in Vietnam, America had no threat to their country from the Viet Cong, yet many Americans gave their lives in Indochina, for what? For the many fat corporate cats who manufactured weapons. Hence America now has a professional army, people who want to engage in conflicts and wars, willingly let themselves be trained to do America’s bidding whatever that might be, usually with quite a lot of self interest thrown in. So a generation of Americans gave power over their lives to corporations who had a stake in the continuation of the Vietnam war.

    First of all, I feel CTA is very successfully in making most of their people as dumb as possible, so that they will not question the policies of their governance. Secondly, CTA has successfully brain wash their people (at least the older generation), that if you dare to even question the policies of HH Dalai Lama, they will be labeled as anti Dalai Lama.

    Since CTA is under HH Dalai Lama, whatever CTA is doing, nobody dares to question and check, and since there is no check and balance, CTA is free to do whatever they want. One can only imagine how corrupt it can be. This does not only apply to CTA, but there are many other countries when there is no check & balance.

    Also, because most of their people dare not speak up, there is no improvements. It has been 57 years since CTA has established in India. They were given lands, and they received donations. What have they been doing for the past 50 years? What have CTA achieved? How did they use the money? Where did they spend their money? Did they educate their people well? Why would they spend their money to suppress Dorje Shugden practitioners, while they should be spending the money to build more schools, create more intelligent students to help build the nation?

    50 years ago, Vietnam War started, and the war lasted for 20 years. Vietnam rebuilt from scratch, and in 30 years, they have achieved so much. Many of their refugees who went abroad those days, are now coming back to Vietnam to invest and build. Why can’t CTA achieve the same thing in 50 years?

    I really feel for Tibetans in exile. Is that their Karma or what? Why are they born in a “country” which is supposed to be applying the Dharma, but they are suffering so much, just because of the mismanagement of CTA?

    And PLEASE, stop blaming China. China may be done their bad things to chase you out from your mother land (they will get their karma for what they have done), but why play on people’s hatred? Why not focus and build your nation? Using the Vietnam War as an example, Vietnam didn’t blame US/China for the mess they created. They just rebuild and see where they are today? They may not be the best place, but they are by far more advanced than CTA.

    With Lobsang Sangye being the newly installed Sikyong, I think there will be no hope for the Tibetans in exile for the next few years. 🙁

  6. Shane Jayasuriya on Jun 20, 2016 at 12:40 am

    Thank you Tibet lover for this article.. Its really sad see politics bring damage to religion and people of their own.

  7. Pastor Adeline on May 4, 2016 at 10:49 am

    It is very sad to see what the Tibetan youth has to say about their governance body, the CTA. It is true that the love for His Holiness will not change even though his methods is not acceptable. The methods do not override his kindness, compassion and his great deeds in benefiting so many. Like this person who is disappointed with the CTA, we the Dorje Shugden practitioners are also disappointed with the extend the CTA will go to use our sacred practice to draw attention away from their failure for the last 60 years.

    On the other hand, the Reuters has disappointed us again by giving us a misleading report that is biased and with a clear intention to put China down by drawing a negative picture of them. Instead of making peace between China and His Holiness, Reuters further fuel the already tense situation between the two thus making it even harder for a dialogue to take place, ignoring the needs of the Tibetans in China and their wish to see His Holiness home.

    What CTA and Reuters need to do is to really make friends with China in order for a meeting and discussion to be granted thereby giving His Holiness or CTA a chance to come to terms with China and work together for the benefits of both Tibetan-in-exile and those in China. This discussion and meeting is very necessary and has now become urgent as there’s not much time left before the rental of land use in India is due in 30 years. Failing which the Tibetans-in-exile will lose their identity and culture that His Holiness has been working hard to protect and preserve all these years.

  8. Pastor Loh Seng Piow on Apr 20, 2016 at 7:36 am

    For more than 50 years after the Tibetan government-in-exile was established, they accomplished nothing for the welfare of the Tibetan people. Even the heart of the exile – Dharamsala, is in a bad state, it is dirty and the infrastructure are falling part, but the Tibetan government-in-exile are receiving no less donation than before, so where did the money go? It is obvious. Tibetan government-in-exile is as corrupt as any other shady government in the world, they aint no Shangri-la. Their Tibetan counterparts in Tibet, China are enjoying much better welfare under the Chinese government, and many exiled Tibetans including high profile officials are returning to Tibet, read here: http://eng.tibet.cn/2012sy/xw/201509/t20150927_3947868.html

  9. Pastor Shin on Apr 20, 2016 at 7:31 am

    It’s encouraging to see more Tibetans speaking up. Since CTA is ‘practising’ and transitioning into democracy, then they should allow the youth and everyone to speak up, even if it means it is to criticise the leadership, or expressing their wish to not agree with CTA’s policies or views. Perhaps then, the real democracy and change can occur.

    I agree with Tibet Lover that the CTA is inflicting the most damage on the religion. For the purpose of politics, Tibet’s greatest treasure – Tibetan Buddhism, is ‘tainted’ by all these religious politics. There is a ban on Dorje Shugden which is against religious freedom, and the CTA allows the Speaker of the Tibetan Parliament-in-exile to defame High Lamas, such as Pabongka Rinpoche in public.

    Since there are already 2 Panchen Lamas, 2 Karmapas, it is possible that there will be 2 “dalai lamas” in the future due to political issues, China recognising their own, while the Tibetans has their own.

    Tibetan leadership need to stop exploiting His Holiness’ name and image and stand on their own feet. After all, the purpose of His Holiness relinquishing his political/ secular role, in His Holiness’ own words is that “in order that the exile Tibetan administration can become self-reliant rather than being dependent on the Dalai Lama.”

  10. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Apr 20, 2016 at 5:53 am

    I think “Tibet Lover” has the right idea. That’s how you really love Tibet – being aware of the realities of the situation and instead of fighting karma, work with these realities to bring about a result that’s the most beneficial for the Tibetan people. And what’s the reality? That China is far stronger than Tibet will ever be, because the Tibetan leadership have made it their focus and priority to exploit their people for the last 60 years (instead of strengthening them).

    This is something that the younger generation are starting to wake up to and speak up about, having realised they no longer have to live under the yoke of the Tibetan leadership now that they have real democracy as afforded to them by American / European passports.

  11. Kb thapa on Apr 19, 2016 at 11:04 pm

    It shows that how corrupt CTA is. the people who are speaking out its because its enough of the dirty politics. Now is the time for All the Tibetan TO SPEAK UP against Tibetan leadership. how petty and narrow minded they are , even in 21st century they ban people practices. Its one of the region is people are too afraid to come in front to say anything of CTA??. its hope people around the world come forward help felt the bad and stay together in a harmony …

  12. Joy on Apr 19, 2016 at 9:32 pm

    It looks like all the difficulties the Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners are now returning back to them. I’m sorry to say this, but it looks like there is karma after all.

    I am not surprise more and more smart educated Tibetans are seeing the injustice and undemocratic leadership of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) and will start questioning and voicing out. How long can the Tibetan leadership manipulate everyone? They don’t even have a country, their sitting on borrowed land yet they create so much havoc for their own people. That is certainly not fair and a government are suppose to be for the people not for themselves.

    Yes why can’t they change the people who governs them since they claim to be democratic. His Holiness the Dalai Lama should not be involve in governmental decision any more since He mentioned it and have let go secular power to the Sikyongs. Therefore whether or not the people accept the new CTA or wants a change should not be tangled up with how they feel about the Dalai Lama who is supposed to be only in charge of the spiritual side. We all know the Dalai Lama still plays a very strong and influential role in many decisions the CTA carries out, but I’m sorry this has got to change and it will like it or not because nothing is permanent.

    The biggest mistake is to create segregation amongst Tibetans based on their religion because it shows the world the huge hypocrisy as they breach their people’s human right to religious freedom. Seriously Tibetans need leaders that are for them not against them.

  13. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 19, 2016 at 6:01 pm

    This again has shown how disharmony the Tibetan community is. It is sad to know that although Tibet is famed for it’s fabulous culture and religion, deep inside the community there’s actually nothing else but heavy corruption. Yes Tibet has a very beautiful culture and religion, but if none of them would like to preserve that, the culture and reputation will soon die off.

    Re the incarnation issue, I personally think that none of us have the right to say yes or no since it’s not up to us to control, it is His Holiness’s choice. For other people to say that he is violating the rules and whatsoever, it doesn’t really matter if we truly believe that His Holiness is the emanation of Avalokiteshvara.

    It is good that more and more Tibetans are speaking up against the persecution and corruption of their leadership, the leaders should set a good example in order to lead the country but sadly all they matter now is power and money.

  14. Vinnie Tan on Apr 19, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    It is sad to see how the Tibetans are being split up like that. It is indeed true that even after 50 years, there is nothing that is reached between the CTA and China.

    It is a dream of H.H. the Dalai Lama to be able to return back to Tibet, yet the CTA has not done anything to help H.H. the Dalai Lama’s return back to China. Even so, they have made more enemies with them, making the lives of the Tibetans that are still in Tibet even more difficult.

    I am very glad that more Tibetan youths are speaking up and are able to see what the CTA is doing and not dwell in that state that they have. It is only by speaking up and letting the world know what the CTA is doing, will it be able to pressure them to do something that is beneficial for the Tibetans as a whole.

    I really hope that from the perspective of individual Tibetans that speak up will be able to influence the world and start listening to both sides of the story instead of just what the CTA is saying.

  15. Pastor Antoinette on Apr 19, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    Thank you for your commentary Tibet Lover.

    Indeed after 50 years of traveling the world and seeking assistance from various leaders, no real progress has been achieved. So much confusion about H.H. reincarnation and so much confusion within the Tibetan Community.

    The CTA has unfortunately not improved the situation of the Tibetans in the exile community. Fighting against China and Dorje Shugden practitioners has brought no beneficial result but only disharmony within the Tibetan Community all over the world. What a shame! So much time and effort wasted on internal politics.

    It is time to move on and find a solution for the whole Tibetan community. Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and a World Peace Protector. The ban needs to come down urgently and a peaceful solution has to be found.

    Whatever the reasons for H.H. Dalai Lama’s decision is, I still believe that there is a higher purpose and in the bigger picture for the ban to be beneficial.

    Slowly more people speak up against the leader of the CTA and their wrong-doings are exposed. May there be a solution for the whole of the Tibetan Community soon.

  16. Valentina Suhendra on Apr 19, 2016 at 4:26 pm

    Dear Tibet Lover

    Thank you for your article. I would like to commend you for voicing your opinion. I don’t think anyone should have a say whether Dalai Lama will have an incarnation or not. From Buddhist point of view, it would be based on the samaya of Dalai Lama’s students with him or whether He wants to reincarnate or not. If one believes that he is a Chenrezig and has control over his birth and death, then it should be the case.

    I do agree with you though that the best shot to improve the quality of life of Tibetans in Tibet is to make friends with the Chinese. These days, China has been very generous toward Tibet. They even allow the Tibetans to practice their religions freely without coercion regardless of whether you are a Dorje Shugden practitioner or not. One would have better freedom of religion then if one stays within refugee camp in India under CTA governance.

    The above reflects my individual view only. I only have my best wishes for Tibetans in Tibet and in exile.

    Valentina

  17. Pastor Niral Patel on Apr 19, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    It is sad to see that even within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, that is known all over the world as one of the most powerful methods to transform one’s mind, such politics is involved. You would think that something as holy as the reincarnation lineage of the Dalai Lamas would be free of such politics, but it is easy to see that this can be used for political reasons, and has been in the past.

    The tensions between the Chinese and the Tibetan governments have always been strained since 1959, and this can obviously been seen as each side straining to maintain some sort of leverage over the Tibetan peoples. Both sides actually have precedence within recorded history, so they do have substance behind their claims.

    Now with more and more young Tibetans speaking up, fed up of both sides, perhaps real change can occur within the Tibetan peoples. Its the youth that can really see just how much politics is effecting their peoples and all aspects of their life. Perhaps the tide is turning for the betterment of the Tibetans in the long run.

  18. MartinC on Apr 19, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    It’s quite disconcerting to hear both sides squabble over the right to the soul of Avalokiteshvara like it is merely chattel albeit a treasured one. It does show how far down the slippery slope of politics Tibetan Buddhism is.

    It is also considerably foolish, as if a Bodhisattva can be owned and could be controlled by title and mundane factors.

    We may well end up with 2 Dalai Lamas- one recognised by the Chinese and another one by the Tibetan establishment. And why not? Who is to say that Avalokiteshvara is limited to one emanation? After all we already have 2 Karmapas and 2 different recognitions of the Panchen Lama.

    One the one hand, 2 each of the top 3 ranking positions in Tibetan Buddhism is confusing but that is on the relative level. On the ultimate level there can be countless emanations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas at any given point in time. What is important is that the dharma will spread more and faster.

    As for Tibetan youths speaking up, it is the harbinger of early democracy coming into being. It’s good that people are exercising their opinion and are not afraid to voice dissenting thoughts to that which the CTA would all to have. These voices may not have a coherent message other than confirm that many are extremely unhappy with the Tibetan leadership and why should they be?

    The Dalai Lama’s principal responsibility is as political head of Tibet. After the Chinese invasion, he felt that complete Tibetan unity is indispensable for advancing the Tibetan youth..Now is right time for all the Tibetan must speak up. only some of the Tibetan speaking, no need to worry because if don’t do now then everyone just suffer forever… must speak up more for DS ban..

    After having gone through the presentation of the views and commentary made by Tibet Lover, many arguments made by him seemed quite logical, factual and displayed a good statment of facts on the situation. Yes, it is true that no concerted and earnest efforts have been made all this while by the exile govt.or the CTA to reach out to Beijing to negotiate for some good betterment deals with China to help out the six millions of the miserable tibetan community in Tibet, who are all “imprison in their own homeland” as said! Though a status-guo situation like before the Chinese-take-over cannot be achieved/negotiated, loyal, powerful and influential friends of the West(of Dalai Lama) could be approached to help out this situation, basing on compassionated grounds on the suffering of the unhappy tibetans community. So is the Dorje Shugden controversy, which should not be surfacing at such an unappropiate time, which gave rise to a lot of unnecessary misunderstanding, fantasy imaginations and a conception of wrong views, which may have created more negatative karmas as a result! As said, it is being very unkind to others. Dorje Shugden has been established and practised for over 400 years, by thousands and thousands of devotees, both of tibetans and non-tibetans followers.Dorje Shugden is affirmed and satisfied to be the most recent Dharma protector to arise with the specified purpose of protecting Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. He is regarded as a “wrathful emanation of Manjushri”. He is said to be in fact, the wisdom buddha of Manjushri in a worldly form to help dharma practitioners with different types of enlightened activities. As such, therefore, Dorje Shugden will still be continued to be worshipped by millions of people all over the World! sO HOW CAN HE BE DEMONIC OR WRONG? We respectfully pray and hope that our compassionate DALAI LAMA, will soon bring an amicable happy conclusion to this Dorje Shugden issue, which is effecting millions of people, monks and other communities around the World who need him! OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA.

    Tenzin Taklha’s feckless comments is a reflection of the Tibetan leadership’s thinking and I hope other Tibetans are capable of thinking on a higher level. Because if they examine Zhu Weiqun’s comment objectively and suppress the automatic apprehension towards anything a Chinese leader says, they might actually take something constructive away from Zhu’s comments. Having overcome the ‘blind faith’ aspect in their loyalty to the Dalai Lama, it may help them to see the real problem that’s encapsulated by Zhu’s statement – that it is a very real possibility of much confusion overwhelming the recognition of the next Dalai Lama and that could be the cause of the disintegration of Tibetan society.

    Am I exaggerating regarding the disintegration? I don’t think so. Just look at Tibetans while His Holiness is alive. They rush to leave Dharamsala and build a life elsewhere. They buy houses in other countries and send their children to non-Tibetan schools. When they retire, they don’t return to India. They put down their roots elsewhere, and their children lose the Tibetan culture, language and way of life.

    So understanding that this confusion over the recognition process (and resulting disintegration) is a very real possibility, the leadership need to examine what they value more – engaging in petty discussions and debates, or strengthening the core of their society, culture and values in preparation for a time when His Holiness is no longer around.

    If the disintegration is already happening while His Holiness is alive, what will happen when His Holiness is no longer around? They’ll have a bigger struggle to maintain their culture and ON TOP of that, have to deal with the confusion over the Dalai Lama’s recognition process. How can they fight China’s might, money and marketing? Who will band the Tibetans and their supporters together when His Holiness is no longer around? No teacher today is capable of rallying the Tibetans and their Western supporters, who only stay because of His Holiness. And even then Richard Gere won’t be around forever, Bob Thurman won’t be around forever. Adam Yauch is already gone.

    So the Tibetan leadership need to stop relying on His Holiness’ name and image to get their way and to exploit their people, and actually rely on their own merits and hard work to accomplish something and ensure their people’s future. Stop directing resources to irrelevant things like the Dorje Shugden ban. Stop enforcing the ban that drives a wedge between the people, that weakens the Tibetan population as a whole.

    Tenzin Taklha and the rest of the leadership can do their bravado thing, and reject Zhu’s comments all they want but at the end of the day, the confusion over the recognition of the next Dalai Lama will still be there. They rejected the Chinese approved Panchen Lama, but confusion still reigns regarding who to follow.

    And then they went against their own policy, and accepted the Chinese approved Karmapa. Their inconsistency, exploitation of their people, and years of focusing on petty arguments and issues is now returning to haunt them. And the funny thing is, I believe it’s starting with His Holiness who isn’t helping matters either by making so many comments regarding the location, gender, possibility of his next incarnation!

    • Pastor David Lai on Apr 19, 2016 at 9:08 pm

      Interesting insight into the real Tibetan situation from Pastor Jean Ai who has personal contacts with numerous Tibetans. Its indeed sad and I can empathize with the regular Tibetan who is caught between the great powers that be and the age-old traditions of the lamas. Unfortunately, I feel that this snowball has gathered enough momentum to flatten everything it is path and it will only get bigger and faster now.

      Tibet as an independent state is a thing of the past and trying to bring something from the past and force it into the present would only bring about great disappointment. Tibet no matter how close they are with the West today will never be closer than how the rest of the world is with China. China is too huge of a nation in terms of military and economic might.

      Therefore, the Tibetan cause is on the losing end and Tibetans to this date is unable to realize this and have not sought alternative solutions towards winning more ground. There are many ways to court the Chinese officials and being in asia, both Tibetans and Chinese prefer less confrontational methods in dealing with important negotiations.

      Unfortunately, it looks like the Chinese have grown impatient with Tibetan negotiations and have chosen to wait out for the the Dalai Lama to enter clear light instead. Hence, they had refused to meet with Tibetan officials for many years. This is very tell tale of what the Chinese are thinking,,,

  22. KarenC on Apr 3, 2016 at 11:17 am

    H.H Dalai Lama has impacted millions of people worldwide through his teachings on human values, tolerance, harmony, peace and the genuine practice of loving kindness. This spiritual leader has committed his life in preserving the above human values to the world, it cannot be HHDL promote one thing and yet wanted his people (CTA and the Tibetans in exiled) do otherwise, such as violent acts towards Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    HHDL is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, He cannot be wrong. It’s the Tibetan government who does not align to HHDL’s pure teaching of Dharma that has caused so much damages throughout the whole world, now even own Tibetans like Tibet Lover has raised his/her concerns of Tibet’s future due to the mismanagement. It’s ridiculous after 50 years of feudal and sorry to say, barbaric governance, the CTA is still insisting the same method hoping they could get back their country.

  23. JP on Apr 2, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    Results speak volumes as to whether the method works. Based on the results, the Tibetan govt in exile did not regain their country back from China. They also created more problems for their people by imposing a ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    I agree with Tibet Lover that everyone should have the right to express their opinions of their govt. What has politics got to do with any religious figurehead? The politicians are there because they are voted by the people. So there is nothing wrong with the people expressing their opinions if they are not happy with the politicians.

    “…the West penalizing China on human rights abuses, the same countries who then turn around and sign trillion dollar deals with China.” If the Tibetan govt in exile banishes others who are supposedly in cohorts with the Chinese, why do they keep returning to the US appealing for their support and donations? US is one of the many countries who do major business deals with China. Why be a hypocrite?

    This is Tibetan politics which I am not interested in at all coz I’m not Tibetan. But I’m only concern with the religious discrimination that’s going on. Strange that the human rights agencies in the Western countries don’t highlight this infringement and pressure the Tibetan govt to lift the ban.

  24. Kb thapa on Apr 2, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    More Tibetans should speak up, in fact everyone should speak up and stand out to confront CTA and their wrong doing. HHDL is supposedly holy and compassion, its good young Tibetan more smart and has basis to talk to CTA. CTA MUST FIND THE SALUTATION FOR DHORJE SHUGDEN BAN ASAP….

      Hello Tenpa,
      This article has got nothing to do with crucifying the Dalai Lama or anybody. Please read the commentary again and see what Tibet Lover is talking about. He is merely sharing his disagreement with the current policies and lack of any progress of the Tibetan cause. If you are really Tibetan you would relate to what is talking about. You would probably have similar thoughts yourself. This is not just about the Dorje Shugden issue. This is about the future of the Tibetan leadership. Surely, you would relate to that…

  26. Tempa on Apr 1, 2016 at 1:57 am

    “RELIGION IS POISON”…..Mao. Lest we forget! The destruction of sacred & ancient teachings & cultures, be it Tibetan or Chinese is the agenda of “PTB” (powers-that-be), world-wide. Anything that helps empower oneself & all is discouraged today via the “NWO” & coming “one-world-religion” global elites, is communism.
    ‘communist’-Chinese have no-business in any religious matters because ‘they’ don’t have one, only an opportunistic-time to propagate & promote their commie agenda, to “divide & rule”. They’ve learned very well from their Jewish (zionist) masters, who indoctrinated,initiated communism in China. Mao was their willing puppet & a Freemason.

    “The Jewish Origins of Mao’s Communist Regime in China”

    “Another revelation that U.S.A. and western journalists and historians are prohibited from writing about concerns the Jewish origins of Mao Tse Tung’s Red Chinese revolution. In fact, Mao was a stupid and inept Chinese peasant who was schooled by Skull and Bonesmen and initiated into the internationalist Masonic Lodge by socialist Jews from the United States. This was done with the tacit permission of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 32nd degree Mason and, later, President Harry S. Truman a 33rd degree Mason.

    Mao all along has been a closely-controlled puppet of Jewish revolutionaries—men like Israel Epstein and Sidney Shapiro, who lived in China and had the reins of power over two key areas of Beijing’s Communist Government—the treasury (money) and the media (propaganda). Interestingly, Zionist Jews hold sway over these same two essential instruments of government today in the United States.”….Texe Marrs (author)

      After reading your comments the first thought that came to mind was he’s a fan of Adolf Hitler and white supremacists. Seems anti-Chinese and anti-Jews. Besides why are you going on about the Chinese government of Mao or the influence of Jews and the Freemason when the article is on the way that His Holiness’ and CTA’s ineffective governing? My humble advice is to try meditation as it does help one to focus. _/\_

  27. Frederick Law on Mar 31, 2016 at 9:25 am

    50 years of governance that has brought no change nor improvement should be reconsider if what they had been doing is correct?

    The logical point and understanding from Tibet lover speaks for the Tibetan refugee at large who are slowly losing their unique culture due to assimilation into the foreign culture where they are living now.

    The CTA by demonizing Dorje Shugden practice as the main culprit of their inabilities to get the autonomy from China is definitely a bad attempt in damaging Tibetan Buddhism further. Dragging religion (Dorje Shugden) into politics create more schism, hate and anger amongst the community, the preciousness of compassion, tolerance and kindness as emphasize by lord Buddha is lost because of their political agenda

  28. Datuk May on Mar 30, 2016 at 11:07 pm

    As a Malaysian Dorje Shugden devotee, I am inspired with the logical and valid points raised by Tibet Lover. Anything that does not work for 50 years need review and changes.

    It takes courage to make changes but in Buddhism it is courage that is one of the virtues to living our lives with integrity and concern for all sentients being.

    It is beautiful that having left Tibet, Tibet Lover still has so much thoughts for his countrymen still in Tibet.

    As far as the issue of Dorje Shugden is concerned, it is amazing that China permits this particular human rights of religion. Politically motivated or otherwise, Tibetans in China have the freedom without bias to continue their propitiation of this Great Protector. That alone says a lot to China’s wish to give a mode of betterment and non discrimination to Tibetans.

    Would such concession apply to Tibetans in exile to return to Tibetan? As long as the CTA does not try hard enough we will never know.

    One thing for sure, time for changes is here, take the opportunity especially with lifting of the Ban against Dorje Shugden devotees.

  29. SPChua on Mar 30, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    I am Malaysian, of Chinese Ethic. I speak English, Malay, Chinese, Cantonese, Hokkian, Teochew. I love my precious Guru Tsem Rinpoche, I love The Dalai Lama, I love my family, I love Buddhism. I love my Country, I love China, I love Tibet and I love all sentient being, I love peace and harmony. But I personally don’t agree with mixing Political with Tibetan Buddhism.

    When I’m a little boy, I always overheard old people said “if politicians can be trusted, poo-poo can be eaten!!”

    There are no reason at all to drag Tibetan Buddhism into Political agendas and messes, but see what CTA has been doing for passed 50 years?? A very obvious sacrifices are the precious practice of Dorje Shugden and all its devoted practitioners. Wonder why The Dalai Lama can’t see this points??

    Dear Dalai Lama, please lift the unethical ban on Dorje Shugden for the betterment of Tibet and mankind.

    We Tibetans love H.H. Dalai Lama but we don’t agree with his middle way policy. Not many dare speak up about this policy, but I am raised outside of Tibet and I am glad someone dares to speak up. We need a change. We need a different policy that makes friends with China and benefits Tibetans inside Tibet.

      “Change”, I think “change” can only come when we educate one-self & stop “following” the dictates or policies of others, be it religion or political. The main issue is “6 million Tibetan bosses”, in-prison in their own homeland. On “friendship”? Takes two,to see, an eye-to-eye, but ain’t happening after many years, so let’s not ‘communist’-Chinese “fool” us, no-more, never!!! Free Tibet!

    Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri in dhama protector form. Dorje Shugden practice has been passed for over 400 years by the lineage gurus. Our lineage gurus have strong faith and practice Dorje Shugden including H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. All these gurus have achieve attainments and now they have returned in perfect human body to continue their previous life dharma works for the benefit of others. If Dorje Shugden is a spirit and can harm H.H. Dalai Lama and other great masters e.g. from other lineage like Sakya and our lineage gurus, the dharma will not grow and spread to the western countries.

    Dharma Protector practice especially Kawang prayer is very powerful to purify our negative karma that accumulated since our countless past lifetimes. If this karma is not purified, it can manifest as obstacles to our Dharma practice and can hinder our spiritual progress. When we practice diligently, Kawang prayer is very effective to clear and stabilise the mind when doubts and confusion arise. Eventually, we will achieve the ultimate happiness of full enlightenment and no longer need any dharma protector.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and compassion to give us this practice to liberate us from suffering and toward enlightenment.

    Puan Sabariah really has a big heart. She cooks and serves everyone regardless of race as she only wants to bring joy, happiness and warm food to the homeless. It is already not easy to cook for 20 or 30 person but she managed to cook for 300 a day from her apartment and even up to 1,000 during Ramadhan. Her work it a great inspiration to many and great reminder to always love and help people no matter what their background is. And now at 70 years old still continue working to help the refugees. So we also should not give up helping others and don’t use age as an excuse.

    I used to hear a few people around me say that they are OCD towards certain triggers. From their description, I was under the impression that OCD means they have low tolerance towards the trigger. With this article clearly stating the symptoms of people with OCD suffering from the obsession that triggers compulsion in doing something, OCD actually is a serious illness. It results in physical or emotional distress. It appears to me that OCD sufferer’s mind are programed to hold onto to a certain perception very strongly. I hope there will be medical help to reduce their fixation so that their quality of life will improve. Thank you for this sharing, Rinpoche.

    I feel very sad for the animals and embarrassing at the same time that our national zoo were in such a poor state. Charging RM 30 (with MyKad) and RM50 (without MyKad) per entry is not cheap and this clearly shows that the zoo is not well managed. Animals are already being captured with no freedom and the situation is made worse with poor condition, unsanitary, lack of food and medical assistance. I hope the authority will look into this urgently and take action to rectify the situation.

    This is indeed a great move from the California authority and passing it as a law. This move will surely reduce the number of puppy mills and reduce the suffering of animals tremendously. Many cats and dogs suffered as most breeders do not maintain and treat the animals poorly. Hopefully more states in United States and other countries will follow suit on this noble act.

    There are three purification practices and Kawang is one of them, most suitable to purify heavy bodily karma as well as clearing and stabilising the mind when doubts or confusion arise in times of conflict or when one is on the verge of giving up on something virtuous. From the sharing by Pastor David, the key to this practice is consistency. Doing the kawang prayer as part of our daily sadhana is akin to building up a strong bond with Dorje Shugden, hence, able to invoke his blessing more effectively.

    This is an unbiased piece that gives a clear and easy to understand overview of the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a “as a matter fact” piece that should be accepted easily by the general public.

    It has been a 20 year struggle for the Dorje Shugden practitioners since His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed a ban on the practice. Families, friends, relatives, couples, etc. were separated due to it. There were many innocent people who were hurt, abandoned and killed because of it. This intended result is totally against the concept of compassion, kindness and equality His Holiness represents.

    Many assumed that all Dorje Shugden practitioners do not like His Holiness and they all demonstrated in his teachings for the last 20 years or so with the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) founded by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It has been pointed out distinctively in this article that it is not the case.

    His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has always fought the unlawful ban by peaceful and powerful means – writing and education. His Eminence preaches patience and kindness that reflect on his approach in the face of hate speech, threats, etc. He also taught his students to do the same.

    His Eminence’s approach seems to be more effective as people are being educated on the controversy and many turned their minds because of that.

    Dorje Shugden is not a cause, a movement or religion but who I am, for that person is compassion, love and acceptance.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article from Huffington Post. Dorje Shugden ban is getting more people’s attention in the world now. This is a good time for everyone to think, find out more and understand the truth about this issue. This is no longer about the issue of religious but it is more to the fundamental human rights on their freedom and religious that bring much impact in their life.

    Basically, everyone may wish to have their life is improving and getting better. But, it seems that this is not applied to the Tibetan people. The Tibetan people especially Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered and facing a lot of difficulties, segregation and discrimination for the past 20 years. This situation is getting worse when Sera Jey Monastery introduced an identity badge system to for its monks to indicate that they were not Dorje Shugden practitioner. From that, we can understand those who are practiced Dorje Shugden were not welcome at the monastic university. This is another kind of discrimination happening now in Tibet.

    I humbly wish that those who are given Dorje Shugden practice by your guru, please continue to have strong faith in your guru and Dorje Shugden. For those who have misunderstand or do not know about Dorje Shugden, please think and understand that our concern now is not only about the religious but the importance of fundamental human rights for people.

    It is uncommon to read unbiased articles about Dorje Shugden issue, more so on international mainstream media. Many international mainstream media shy away from the issue because it is controversial, it involves a 400 years old deity practice that “outsider” finds hard to verify and it deeply intertwines in the entangled Tibetan-China political relationship. Therefore, I rejoice for the job well done by the Huffington Post for carrying this unbiased, well researched and factual article; it is very refreshing and encouraging for all Shugdenpas, for a change.

    Shugden practice is being accused of threatening the unity of all the Buddhism sects in Tibet. The Huffington Post rightly points out that for the past four centuries, Dorje Shugden was propitiated alongside all these main Buddhism schools without any signs of aggressive purge, as claimed by the HHDL people post 1976.

    The only difference between the Shugden practice and the rest of the Tibetan Buddhism practice is almost close to zero. It is really a matter of emphasis. Yet, the ban initiated by HHDL, in all his wisdom, have been fervently actualised by the CTA over the years. Resulting in the ostracisation of the entire Shugden community, and followed by many abuse, beating and threats that ensued on a day-to-day basis. Is it not the exact aggressive purge that threatens the unity of the Buddhism community?

    The deity is being demonised further with no basis. And the community is accused of being Chinese spy. Interestingly, the Chinese angle became an opportune played well by the Beijing after they learnt of this fall out and exploit the discord against their arch rival, HHDL. Will HHDL and his think-tank finally admit that it is better to lift the ban so that the Chinese can stop using it to widen the divide?

    There is another key issue not being pressed on in this article, which I believe it is out of respect to HHDL. This article did not question why HHDL, a 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laurette, is not hesitant to show no mercy to his own people practicing Dorje Shugden; which is to go against what he championed for the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for this wonderful and uplifting sharing!

    These videos are very necessary to counter the repeated false claims by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on the unlawful ban of Dorje Shugden. These videos were highly circulated by the Tibetans on social media platform. Now that the Tibetan version is available, more Tibetans can understand the contradictory statements made by their leader Lobsang Sangyay and the kashag (cabinet). It is very important that the Tibetans understand so that they can unite and join force to vote for a different and more capable leaders who will really do something that benefit them.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
