Racism Against Tibetans in America

Nov 19, 2016 | Views: 851

As a child, I experienced a lot of racism growing up in Howell, New Jersey. In school, I was called a “chink” very frequently and bullied for my race. I wasn’t bullied for many other things, but only for my race. As I grew older and taller, the bullying stopped but now as a grown up, I am still discriminated against. But this time, the discrimination is for my religion which is my Dorje Shugden faith. And the other difference is that this time, the discrimination comes from my own Tibetan people and the leadership which is the Tibetan people.

Growing up in Howell, New Jersey in the 1970s, I was discriminated against for the colour of my skin and for being Asian.

Growing up in Howell, New Jersey in the 1970s, I was discriminated against for the colour of my skin and for being Asian.

So when I was sent the article below today by one of my friends, I was not surprised because from my experience growing up in America, I know many people have experienced and continue to experience racism just because of something they cannot change which is their ethnicity and skin colour. So while I was not happy to read what Tenzin has experienced, sad to say but now he knows what it feels like as a Tibetan to be called something derogatory because of who you are.

This is something that myself and many others as a Dorje Shugden practitioner have experienced for the last 20 years. I am a Dorje Shugden practitioner, that is who I am and for two decades, I have suffered vulgarities, insults and threats as a result of my faith which I committed to before the ban started. My faith is therefore something I cannot change due to my tantric commitments and the promise I made to my guru.

Not only am I a Dorje Shugden practitioner, but my father also relied on Dorje Shugden. And in fact, many years ago, he gave me a Dorje Shugden wealth vase that was blessed by the great Mongolian lama Guru Deva Rinpoche. So my father was a devotee of this holy Protector too, and he also wanted me to be connected with Dorje Shugden and believed the practice would benefit me.

Tenzin says in his interview that the discrimination is different because it is sanctioned by those in power. He speaks about the fear he experiences for his family’s safety. Tenzin’s words can easily be applied to the situation faced by Dorje Shugden practitioners. As a result of their faith, Shugden practitioners have lived under a dark cloud of uncertainty and fear for 20 years. Their images are put up throughout Tibetan settlements so they can have hatred and violence directed against them. They are banned from schools, shops, hospitals, restaurants as a result of their faith; their children are bullied in and removed from schools, and parents who practise are shut out from employment within the Tibetan civil service. Even the leader of the Tibetan people, His Holiness the Dalai Lama refuses to meet with Dorje Shugden practitioners.

It is my prayer that everyone, Tibetan or otherwise, never has to suffer any kind of discrimination, whether it is on the basis of their race, gender, age, faith or economic background. And especially for Dorje Shugden practitioners, may the discrimination against them end soon.

It is my prayer that everyone, Tibetan or otherwise, never has to suffer any kind of discrimination, whether it is on the basis of their race, gender, age, faith or economic background. And especially for Dorje Shugden practitioners, may the discrimination against them end soon.

So I pray that Tibetans who have racist taunts directed at them meditate on this, and develop compassion for Dorje Shugden practitioners and the fear they have had to live with for two decades. No one should have to experience violent behaviour that is based on discrimination, whether it is because of their race, skin colour, economic background, education and their faith. Certainly I don’t wish Tenzin’s experiences on anyone. So please read the article below and listen to the interview snippets carefully. Take out Tenzin’s name and experience, and think about how it can apply to Dorje Shugden practitioners. It is my hope that through this, more Tibetans will know what it feels like to be segregated against because of who you are, because that is exactly how Dorje Shugden people feel.

Harassed, afraid, a North Country immigrant fights back with love

By Zach Hirsch (Plattsburgh Correspondent), in Plattsburgh, NY

Nov 17, 2016 — Tenzin Dorjee did everything he was supposed to do and more. He became naturalized as a U.S. citizen six years ago. He co-owns the Himalaya Restaurant in Plattsburgh, which now has a second location. Each year, he helps organize a festival that brings in musicians and artists from across the country and overseas.

He’s put in hundreds of hours building the city’s cultural diversity. Lately, something else is consuming his energy: fear.

Since Election Day, there has been a wave of hate directed at minority groups across the U.S. Intimidation. Harassment. Swastikas. The Southern Poverty Law Center counted over 400 such incidents in the week after the election.

After being repeatedly harassed himself, Dorjee is struggling to make sense of this moment, and trying to figure out how to fight back.

Dorjee grew up in Bhutan. Over the years he’s been singled out a few times in Plattsburgh, but it was just “minor stuff. They trash all my flowerpots and stuff,” he said. “This feels very different.”

      Tenzin Dorjee Part 1

It was Wednesday of last week, the day after Donald Trump was elected. Dorjee was walking into Walmart when he ran into two men wearing camouflage jackets. “It was a couple of guys standing next to a couple of trucks. And that’s when they say, ‘Hey chink, get the f— out of my country. Go back to where you came from.’ And I just smiled at them.”

He sighed. “Then it happened again.”Just a few steps away, two other people used the same racial slur. “I felt very uncomfortable, unsafe,” Dorjee said, and he never made it into Walmart. “I just turned around and went back home.”

Then, a couple of days later, he was out running errands when two older men in a car cut him off on purpose, he said, and flashed him the middle finger. The fact that they were elderly people broke his heart. “That was something that I wasn’t expecting.”

Dorjee is culturally Tibetan, and his family came to the U.S. to escape persecution from the Chinese government. Once, he said, Chinese officials caught up with them in India, and he was beaten so badly it took him three weeks to recover.

He came here to get away from all that. And for the most part, the North Country has embraced the Dorjees. They’re well liked and widely respected for organizing the annual Tibetan arts and culture festival. In 2015, local artists built a permanent mandala tile mural into the side of a building downtown to honor Tibetan traditions. At the unveiling, Dorjee smiled and appeared to be overwhelmed. He told the crowd that Plattsburgh is full of honorary Tibetans.

“I’ve always been asked this question of ‘how many Tibetan families are there in Plattsburgh?’ And I’ve always said plenty. And this goes to prove that whatever I said about my family in Plattsburgh is correct…The hearts that I have here are Tibetan,” he says in Arts in Exile, a Mountain Lake PBS documentary about the festival.

Now, Dorjee is frightened for his family’s safety. On Facebook he wrote a long, emotional post, which said in part,

“As fear overtakes me for the protection of my family and myself I am now joining the group that believes in right to own firearms.”

He continued, “It is a sad decision for me as I believe in compassion but as a family man and human I have faults and it has driven me to the conclusion that a weapon of destruction is my only safeguard against the hate that has been directed against the color of my skin and political beliefs.”

Dorjee is a practicing Buddhist. Being peaceful is a huge part of his religion and identity. But he felt like he didn’t have any other options. He planned to buy a shotgun for the house, and get a license for a concealed carry pistol.

It was a dark, low moment, Dorjee said. Then he heard from friends, and he slept on it.

“I got around to thinking, and then my community members, of course they’ve been very supportive on my Facebook, and then I’ve had community members come up to me and say ‘Tenzin, we are behind you all the way.’ And when I look at that kind of support, then I do not feel the need to bear any kind of firearms, because that is my firearm.”

      Tenzin Dorjee Part 2

Instead of guns, he’s buying a new security camera. He’s also hoping to help organize a forum about racism and xenophobia. Leaders from the city and town said they think that’s a great idea.

In the meantime, people are on edge. Recently, a rumor ran around SUNY Plattsburgh about the KKK. University Police sent an email reassuring students that they’ve looked into it and there is no evidence of KKK activity in the area.

On Monday, Dorjee’s car was vandalized while it was parked outside of his house. He’s not sure if it’s a racial thing, but he thinks so, since it’s never happened before in the nine years he’s lived here.

Dorjee plans to fight back with compassion. In a Facebook post about the car, he wrote, “Bring it on. Your hate is not going to change me into you.”

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    Due to the ban on Dorje Shugden many of it’s practitioners faced discrimination,sufferings ,denied services in hospitals, schools and so forth. What Dorjee and other Tibetan gone through in America are nothing much of what Rinpoche had gone through.Rinpoche and many others as a Dorje Shugden practitioner have experienced for the last 20 years was far worst.No one should have to experience racism and discrimination,just because of their race, skin colour and their faith.Every one should be given freedom to practice what they want without fear.
    May H.H Dalai Lama lift the ban soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

    For longest time, people who have been misled have wrongly accused Dorje Shugden practitioners and have hated blindly without understanding the real issue. Therefore it is very refreshing to see this comment by Suzy in Rinpoche’s YouTube channel [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s] in which she eloquently expressed how her mind shifted about Dorje Shugden after learning more about the Protector.

    I honestly do not think Donal Trump is pushing the race, or purity agenda, Donald Trump is always looking for business and jobs for Americans first, everything else secondary. Still I feel sorry that he and his family are under duress.

    With regards to Dorje Shudgen people, it is an institutional persecution all the way from the top. There are so much evidence that shows, how many practitioners, monks and lamas have been harmed by the Dorje Shugden ban.

    Discrimination is nothing new actually and it is more apparent these days as more people are aware of it. We are now living in the modern world and this should not be happening especially in US where it is one of the main advocacy for human rights. Somehow rather, Asians and Africans are more likely to suffer from this. What Dorjee is going through so far is something certainly caught everyone by surprise given by the latest outcome of the presidential election. This is time where Tibetans realise there are one group of not only Tibetans are suffering from currently. It is the discrimination against Dorje Shugden and it’s practitioners. Every known practitioners were subject to abusive messages hurled at them and especially Tsem Rinpoche where his FB and Twitter accounts were attacked daily. Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to say Karma strikes back to the Tibetans who discriminated Dorje Shugden practitioners but now at least some of them will understand how it feels to be one being discriminated like how their compatriots who chose to honour their commitments to their gurus by holding onto the practice and be firm with it. We live in this world today knowing that things are no longer can be just pushed into us without proper analysis and people have to realise there are always people who will think differently from you and we should respect that. Being born in a race that is so called lower in the caste or monority doesn’t mean they will have to suffer demeanour.

    Discrimination again any religion or race are not supposing happen in this modern era where people are more well educated is very frustrating to know that discrimination do happen in country like U.S by the people there should more civilize I really hope this kind of discrimination can end soon especially on discrimination for people who practice their faith and religion which are happen all around the world we need to practice with freedom and without fear everyone want peace .

  15. Tan Soon Huat on Nov 20, 2016 at 6:16 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this article. I feel sad on the pitiful experience by Dorjee. There is nothing we can change to make the discrimator feels better; we are born with the skin color. Same things for Dorje Shugden practitioners; we can not give up our practice as it is given by our Guru. We need to hold the commitmennt no matter what happen even given up our life like Methar.

    I think Dorje Shugden practitioners suffered even more that fear experienced by Dorjee. They are helpless, some of them even tortured to dead. Their family are facing society pressure such as hospital does not give treatment to them, school does not want to accept their children etc. Who is going to help them? Yes, you may say their practice harm your Guru, H.H.Dalai Lama but H.H.Dalai Lama has announced that the practice of Dorje Shugden does not harm him at all. Please stop using the excuse to harm anybody to fulfill your selfish desire. It is not Buddhism and in fact you are stopping the Dharma Wheel turning. Nobody will join the violent religion for peaceful purpose.

    Hope it all will stop very soon. No more violent and harming to those innocent harmless person.

  16. Julia Tan on Nov 20, 2016 at 1:00 am

    My heart goes to Dorjee after reading this article. He reminded me the Dorje Shugden ban that caused recrimination among Tibetans. No matter who you are, where you come from, how different our religions or belief, we should not allow discrimination to happen.

    Why choose to discriminate if we can live harmoniously together. Non of the religions in the worlds teaches us to discriminate. If we are being taught to love even animals, why can’t we love each other. Why create so much of hatrads, fear and sufferings due to personal benefits. Why choose to hate while you can forgive, accept and be nice to each other.

    Please do not forget about what happened during world war 1 and 2. Why hate? Because you blame others of ruing your life? If you can choose to be responsible of your life, of what you did, of your failure or mistakes, then there’s no hate hence there would not be discrimination among people. Then world peace is near.

  17. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 19, 2016 at 11:20 pm

    I am deeply saddened after knowing the discrimination and racism faced by Tenzin and his family in US after the US election day. I believe there are many more Tibetan families staying in US in order to escape persecution from the Chinese government. I hope the newly elected US government will take counter measures to improve the racism and discrimination situation in US as there is no benefit for everyone if the racism and discrimination continue to be amplified to a higher level.

    Similarly, the discrimination is also happening to all the Dorje Shugden’s practitioners in India where Dorje Shugden’s practitioners receive unfair treatment and being abused just because of different belief in religion. I personally do not see if there is any benefit for someone to put down other’s religion and practice as discrimination, abusive words, vulgarity and baseless accusations cannot help anyone to gain any worldly achievement and spiritual progress as well.

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing out the awareness of racism that is happening in US and the discrimination and injustice faced by many Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. It is our responsibility to share the Dharma teachings to others, especially for those who launch the attack to others because of different belief, different religion, different races or simply because of prejudice. May our world become a better place to live with peace and harmony.

  18. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 19, 2016 at 11:15 pm

    Tenzin Dorjee together with other minorities in the US , are now facing the back lash of a wave of racism and hate – sometimes expressed in violence and at other times in biting insults and derogatory remarks – hurled at them.This wave has swept across the North Country in the aftermath of the presidential elections. Tenzin Dorjee says it’s scary because racial attacks appear to be sanctioned by “those in power”. He fears for his life and he fears for the safety of hs family. At one stage, he was even driven to the point of wanting to own a firearm for protection!

    While he is experiencing such tremendous fear and threat to his life from being discriminated against and persecuted because of strong negative racist sentiments, perhaps , he and other fellow Tibetans in the same boat, should pause and contemplate ,for a moment, and empathize with others, who are being discriminated from within their own race. Tenzin and others should spare a thought for Shugden practitioners, including high Lamas, who have been discriminated against and persecuted and threatened for 20 years. Schools are barred to their children; they cannot seek treatment from hospitals and they have been barred from posts in the civil service.

    There are many, including my Guru, who have been unjustifibly insulted and threatened just because they practice a practice given to them by their root Gurus . Just as there is no justification for racial discrimination, so too is there no justification for discrimination against individuals who choose to honor and keep their faith and belief.

    I echo my Guru in asking for all authorities concerned and those in power to stop practicing any form of discrimination; for no form of discrimination is ever justifiable or lawful. Instead, it continues to bring much harm and suffering. May peaceful negotiations take place soon to resolve the pressing issues of discrimination.

  19. Vinnie Tan on Nov 19, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    It is really sad to see that even in modern times like that, discrimination is still ongoing for even countries like the US. It is also stronger now with the new presidency direction.

    However, what is on for Tenzin now is nothing compared to what Dorje Shugden practitioners are going through. The kind of pain and fear they have lived in decades. They have no one to go to as well because even their own government is out to get them.

    For cases like Tenzin’s they have support groups that they can go to for help. But, what about the Dorje Shugden practitioners? When the ban just started, they had nowhere to go and where ever they go they are being spat at. Even for the basic needs, they had problems getting them due to the kind of discrimination that was against them.

    I hope that with what is going on for some of the racial groups in the US now, they will be able to understand how Dorje Shugden practitioners feel. Especially for the Tibetans that are there now.

  20. Uncle Eddie on Nov 19, 2016 at 10:18 pm

    It is so unfortunate that Tenzin Dorje, who has to escape from Tibet, China, to be made a scapegoat of this western racism and Xenophobia. Racists are the sufferers of Sadism, who enjoy imposing all forms of cruelty to others for their enjoyment and pleasures. It is not therefore surprising that Tenzin and his family suffered terrible mental and physical tortures at the hands of these sick people, whenever and wherever the Tenzins happened to meet any of them. It is the same as what Rinpoche had experienced in his young life! Till this day, this hatred and discrimination suffered by them still follow. Of course, in the case of Rinpoche, he was being discriminated for deep devoted faith in Dorje Shugden, the great Protector, by the Tibetan Leadership and its group of anti-worshippers of Dorje Shugden. Irrespective of whether Tibetans or not, it is also the hope of all sentient beings not to be made to feel segregated against who you are, or whether you are a worshipper of Dorje Shugden. This is both the respected birthright and spiritual liberty of all beings, including animals! It is said that, “Buddhism is a religion that requires extensive practices as well. Faith alone is not sufficient. Many man-made disaters could have been averted, but for a failure to implement the basic human values of kindness and consideration for other’s freedom of worship! May the fervent hope and wish of our Rinpoche in all his prayers come true for the benefit of all sentient beings. Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha.

  21. Lin Mun on Nov 19, 2016 at 9:43 pm

    It is very sad that discrimination on minority still continue to exist in a democratic country and this this is in fact right after election. It is already very tough for Tibetan to leave their home country and now being harassed and to live in fear daily in US.

    I agree with Dorjee method to fight back using compassion instead of getting a gun which will instil more violent. Hope his forum about racism and xenophobia will bring great success and create awareness to the people in Plattsburg and others.

    Nonetheless, the discrimination experience by Dorjee is the same to those Dorje Shugden practitioners. The Tibetan in power will abuse and put stress on them with baseless allegation. All these because the one in power would want to defend for their own agenda. Dorje Shugden practitioners also have to live in fear and being discriminate and segregate from entering public places including getting medical help. Why create so much suffering to the people?

    I hope the ban on Shugden will end and the authority will promote peace and harmony among the people and country

  22. Sarah on Nov 19, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    It’s tough already to be a refugee in a foreign country. Although Dorjee has become a U.S. citizen, he will always feel he’s a foreigner because of the discrimination against him. It’s good he has decided not to buy a gun for protection. I support his approach which is to organise a forum to highlight the plight of people like him, and using peaceful means like social media. I think speaking out and reaching out to people of different ethnic backgrounds will be more effective than carrying a gun and living in fear.

  23. Fong on Nov 19, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Discrimination is rearing it’s ugly head more and more nowadays. It’s like history is repeating itself. It is sad that people like Tenzin Dorjee and his family have to endure racial discrimination. But, at this present moment, all minority groups, not just the Asians are feeling the discrimination.

    In situations like this, as a practicing Buddhist he is fighting all that with compassion just as Rinpoche has always propounded the way to clear hate is with love, hate begets hate.

    Hopefully, this will enable Tenzin Dorjee to empathize with many other around the world who are discriminated against for their race, religious believes or gender. That this will make him aware of human rights and be more sensitive to the sufferings of others within his very own community that were segregated and discriminated against.

    No one has to go through what his family is going through. No one. No one should be discriminated against. Always think what if, the shoe is on the other foot when you discriminate. What if you were the one discriminated against. As practicing Buddhist, we should always remember karma.

    So, I hope these Tibetans in the United States now, can see the parallel here with the Dorje Shugden discrimination around the world and have compassion and peace in their heart and stop this religious discrimination.

  24. Echeah on Nov 19, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    It is very unsettling to always have the feeling of insecurity and being at risk in one’s own backyard. Racism has always been rampant mostly in majority white countries. As long as you’re not white, you’re bullied and discriminated against. The recent Trump campaign and his winning the election uncovers the true colours of the general American populace which up till now had been subdued. But Trump’s rhetoric had given them the impetus and sanction to finally unleash what they had always felt of people of colour, LGBT, non-Christian, female, immigrants, minorities etc.

    Everybody of oriental descent is generally termed Chinese and called slit-eyed, chinks, yellows-skinned. I heard from my daughter that Trump called a popular K-Pop group Chinese, probably because we all have the same slit-eyes so we’re lumped into the same abominated pot. Generally America is wary and jealous of China that has unseated them as the largest economy of the world. So more so now anything Chinese is looked upon with disdain. Trump had promised to make America great again! But Trump and America had better swallow their pride and be friends with China if they are smart.

    Actually not only in America, as I said earlier, in majority white countries. I was in Australia a few months ago and had dinner with 2 friends, another ethnic Chinese and a white from UK. We were getting a cab and there was a row of them outside the mall. My Asian friend and I went to the first cab but my UK friend was trailing far behind. The 2 of us Asians were about to open the door to the first cab but the driver looked at us leery eyed and rudely said no he’s not for hire and he’s not taking us. Nonplusssed, we went to the next cab behind. By then our white friend joined us and we got into the 2nd cab together. But the 1st cab driver came and scolded us and said we should be getting into his cab as he’s first in line. We understood the undertone immediately.

    If being discriminated against by another race is bad enough, being discriminated against and victimised by people of your own race is far worse. Tibetans segregating and dividing Tibetans. That’s the ultimate bias. Instead of uniting them, the Tibetan government is ruling by dividing their own people. This is a sad scenario and wrong on all counts.

  25. Valentina Suhendra on Nov 19, 2016 at 6:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this article. I had lived in the United States for five years and I was quite fortunate to stay in the Northwestern part where the discrimination was much less than the other part of the United States and almost everyone I knew strived to be politically correct.

    However, it does not deny the fact that the United States have a long history of race based discrimination. Now, my teacher and Dharma brothers and sisters are discriminated because they practiced Dorje Shugden. Everyday, we received nasty accusations and insults due to our belief. We are still fortunate because those who practice Dorje Shugden within the Tibetan settlements in India are having much worse experience than us. They are being denied access to employment, health, and public places. How degrading!

    When I am reading this article, although I am not pleased with the discrimination suffered by the Tibetans in the United States, but I hope they will reflect on how unpleasant it is to be discriminated against and therefore, encouraged their fellow Tibetans to stop discriminating other people solely based on their faith.

  26. nicholas on Nov 19, 2016 at 5:08 pm

    It’s sad that at this modern time segregation still exist but just has been said in the article that the people this hold on to their ethnicity and skin color or rather I feel as threaten their security. People would rather being closed than have an open mind that the world is belong to everyone and as long as peace is being focus despite the different why can’t everyone accept the differences. We are not the only species that live in this world.

    I shared my sadden to Tenzin due to the discrimination that make him feel so insecure and always in fear. Looking at Tenzin situation it the same as all Dorje Shugden practitioners that faces all sort of threat, vulgarities, harm, bias treatment, hospitality, basic needs be it in actual physical or virtual in the cyber world. What make the situation worsen is that the attack is from the same ethnic which segregate and harm their own people which is the Tibetan. Situation getting more depress where the Tibetan even hired different ethnic of people to add more oil to the fire that they had created. Personally I don’t understand why they need to come to this extend to create the harmful environment for their own people that just looking for freedom of choice for the spiritual practice that never harm anyone.

    For people that feel sad for Tenzin for what he and his family have to go through the Shugden practitioners are going through the same fear and insecure moment too. If the Tibetan leaders has been looking for freedom for his country but at the same time taken away the freedom from his own people that practice Shugden, what is the logic of this? Hope Tibetan leaders contemplate this deeply as discrimination is not a selective event but is action that doesn’t bring peace, harmony, growth to the entire world.

    感谢仁波切分享关于Tenzin Dorjee被种族主意歧视的情况与心灵上伤害。

    种族主意歧视在每一个国家都给人民带来伤害,不但是种族歧视,宗教歧视如多杰雄登法门早在20年前大家不分你我和睦相处的,但在禁令过后就让雄登修持者带来伤害,歧视,破坏等等,如修雄登护法法门家庭的儿女不得上学,生病不得到医院就医,家园遭受破坏,购物商店不得进去购物等等,20年的折磨与痛苦,希望尽早得到方案解决或将禁令解除,让人民可以和谐共处的生活下去,请游览以下网站 :https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/the-buddhist-divide-an-unholy-campaign-against-religious-freedom.html 。

    Tenzin Dorjee在文章里有述说到在种族主意歧视遭受恶言伤害,汽车遭受破坏,甚至担心家人遭受伤害,心灵上遭受折磨。Tenzin Dorjee 只是其中一个个案,但是还有众多的个案我们是还未知道而已。

    歧视无论在宗族或种族上,都只会带来伤害,破坏与情况恶化,愿多杰雄登的禁令可以尽快解除,愿世界各地的对种族歧视达到和谐相处的目标,那么人民和谐,国家就兴旺,世界就和平,那不是一件好事吗?

    Throughout history when a kind and compassionate monarch or leader ascends the seat of power, the nation prospers and great growth is experienced. When the opposite kind of a monarch or leader ascends the same seat of power, then chaos is created and the people will become fearful and disorientated. And the nation will decline.

    It is therefore not surprising that with the election of new President Trump of the United States of America, the minorities like Tibetan Tenzin Dorjee are being harassed and discriminated against. President Elect Trump indoctrinated fear of the white people of being dominated by the minority groups of people of colour.

    I really feel sorry for the Tibetans like Tenzin Dorjee who have escaped from China in fear of discrimination, made a life in democratic USA to once again experience such fate. It is also encouraging to note that other Tibetans will now stand with him to fight this with love. This is really beautiful.

    I am a Dorje Shugden practitioner and daily, members of my Dharma family, under the spiritual guidance of HE the 25th Tsem Rinpoche suffer such same discrimination and harassment from fellow Buddhist. Rinpoche suffers the most from being cursed at and vulgarities thrown at Him.

    It is very painful and heartbreaking for Rinpoche to suffer such for His faith and also from fellow Tibetans in the seats of power.

    In comparison to minority discrimination, the Dorje Shugden Lamas have suffered so much more as there are no laws to protect them. And all these DS Lamas have are their love, compassion and kindness to plead for the Ban to be lifted. 20 years of suffering is far too long. I pray that the Dalai Lama will lift the Ban and create unity and harmony to eliminate any further suffering.

  29. Pastor Antoinette on Nov 19, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    This is so sad as it shows that with the election many people show their racial side and even criticize people who give much to their country.

    Racism is very scary as a basic human need is to feel safe at home and the area you live. This seems now threatened by people who don’t know Tenzin and only discriminate him based on the colour of his skin. He does not have a language barrier or is a burden to others. Yet, he is the target to their aggression

    In the introduction Rinpoche wrote that he was also a victim of racism and eventhough times have evolved since the 70’s, the hate and agression is still so dominant. It must be a very hurtful and scary experience for someone who has lived many years of his life in the country and went to school or has worked, paid taxes and was part of the community.

    Dorje Shugden practitioners have to experience such hate in their own community and among their own people. I think this is even worse. The harassment from your people, your nationality, from friends and even family members, being cast out of your temple and community is much more difficult to bear. The person in the article still has many friends and his family who support him.

    May the Dorje Shugden ban be ended soon so that the suffering of so many people can end and the Tibetan people can unite again. May HH the Dalai Lama show compassion to all Tibetans.

    Thank you,

  30. Lew on Nov 19, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    This is so true, all of us don’t like to be discriminated and wanted equality for ourselves, but when it comes to others, it is a different matter all together. At least many people are like that.

    I think the worst kind of discrimination is the kind that come from your own ethnic group. In this case of Tsem Rinpoche, it is most heart broken when the discrimination comes from own “family” Tibetans.

    Tibetans also said they are persecuted by China, but at the same time, they persecute Dorje Shugden practitioners. And they find ways to justify it is OK to discriminate Dorje Shugden people, and in the same way, the Chinese government find ways to justify their persecution towards Tibetans. Where is this going to end?

    What I don’t understand is, why are the Tibetans never contemplate this point: If they don’t like to be persecuted, then why are they persecuting others? Let’s not even talk about karma coming back, why would you do something you don’t like to others?

  31. Stella Cheang on Nov 19, 2016 at 10:44 am

    It is sad but not surprising to hear of the immediate racial tension in America following the presidential election in the United States. As the Trump’s election campaign had painted the minorities and the colored people as a threat to peace and the economy, it is no wonder the extreme white nationalist took it upon themselves to act out these campaign manifesto. The impact of words and actions of Donald Trump as a newly elected President, literally legitimize outward racism and blatant discrimination against the minorities and colored people in the new term. Thankfully, many citizen of America are liberal and peace-loving, they are quick to voice out against the absurdly racist pitch and took it onto social media to create awareness. It is also very heartwarming to read that Tenzin Dorjee retaliate the violent with rational and love.

    If one feel unfair and even angry for the minorities and colored people in the States, then try imagine for a moment how life is for Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. They had endured far worse for the past two decades because their leaders (of Tibetans in exile) are incapable of complying to core human rights obligations towards its people. Physical violent, death threat, discrimination and segregation against Dorje Shugden people were wildly practiced in Tibetan settlements in India because, like the United States now, the leadership; i.e. Dharamsala and CTA endorsed and pitch it. It is still going on today.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and this quote for us to ponder on “No one should have to experience violent behaviour that is based on discrimination, whether it is because of their race, skin color, economic background, education and their faith.”

  32. Sofi on Nov 19, 2016 at 5:44 am

    I agree with Rinpoche that in America, racism had always existed but with Trump’s winning of the Presidential elections, the racists are coming out of the woodworks. They take courage with Trump’s message that immigrants should be sent back to their countries of origins, albeit illegal ones. With his potential appointment of a white supremacist, well America is going to be in for a shock, especially those non-whites who had voted for Trump. So all in all, I am not surprised that Tenzin Dorjee would face the threats by being different. Racists do not care if you are legally citizen or not. They just look at race and anyone that is not their race is sport enough. It is terrible that Tenzin is driven to fear for his and his family’s safety and had even considered owning guns as protection. However I am glad that he had very good friends support group that helped him to gain strength in other ways. As he had been an organiser of the cultural events and had garnered friends of all races in his community, he had their support. He also had very strong support from his social networks. I would think that the support of so many people is the best weapon against minority racists people. When they see the strength of support, they will think again of doing real harm.

    What Tenzin is facing runs parallel to what the Dorje Shugden practitioners had been facing since the ban 20 years ago. Although what Tenzin is going through is unpleasant and fearful, I am a little glad that he is going through this. Now he can better understand the situation of suffering by the Shugden practitioners. The constant fear and having to look over your shoulder for that constant attacks. And the constant vulgar harassment as faced by Rinpoche on a daily basis. Maybe Tenzin will share a little sympathy for the Shugden practitioners and being a community man who is Buddhist, maybe he will play his part towards generating awareness of the Shugden ban that had created so much sufferings to the Lamas and practitioners. Maybe he will support the lifting of the illegal ban that infringed on religious freedom to bring unity to all Tibetan Buddhist pracitioners. Maybe all those who faced and experienced discrimination will stand up for the rights to religion practice without persecution, rights of humanity.

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing awareness of the state of discrimination in the US and your own personal experiences during your childhood as well as what you are going through now. May the world learn to be a little kinder and more accepting of each other.

  33. Abby Foo on Nov 19, 2016 at 4:20 am

    This world never lacks of hatred, discrimination and racism, why add more? What happened to Dorjee is really bad, and it is telling us, till this day, ‘hate’ never stop, and ‘hate’ is everywhere…

    Hate also exists in the Tibetan community in India. Tibetan in India who practices/believes in a deity named Dorje Shugden are being discriminated, segregated and hated like what Tsem Rinpoche has explained at the above.

    The pics I attached below are the proves of how bad the discrimination/segregation is against Dorje Shugden practitioners. I pray that all discrimination and hate will come to an end very soon. I pray that all live in equanimity, love and peace. May ban against Dorje Shugden can be lifted soon.

    It is quite a surprise to see (especially after the US election) how racist America really is and still is after so many years. This is 2016 and it racism is still very high. I guess is was well hidden, they were just suppressed or quiet down due to Obama’s administration but now they are wide awake and lashing out all that punned up hate. But what is interesting about Tenzin’s story is that his experience it is exactly what we Dorje Shugden people, Lamas, monks, nuns, practitioners are facing each and everyday, online/offline, just because of our faith.

    We have been called names like Chinese dogs and trolled on twitter. We’ve been wrongly accused, defamed and discriminated all because we’re a SHUGDEN practitioner, especially if you are living in India. It is exactly the same fears and disgusting remarks we get…. interesting how Tenzin is being called the very name Tibetans hate and view as enemy. To the ignorant white man we are all the same as our skin is the same, but also in reality we are ALL the same – human! So why do we need to discriminate anyone?

    I hope those Tibetans experiencing the racism in US will contemplate on how Dorje Shugden people feel about their discrimination. People should unite not divide and good leaders encourage this not create schism, build a wall and fund hate campaigns.

  35. Casteven Lim (KHJB) on Nov 19, 2016 at 2:21 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Tenzin Dorjee story is very sad to hear so as ShugdenPa in Tibet. We are lucky that born in beautiful Malaysia that less discrimination here. Sometime there are a minority of uneducated dark skin folk is calling Chinese is ” Cina Babi, balik China ” ( Chinese pig, go back to China ) but still Malaysia is in peace.

    America seem like a Humanrights country but actually their Ego or “Lineage” influence them until today. Hence to solve this worldwide issue we need to just like DS told us, use the power of social media to get more peoples around the world to look into this issue so as DS Ban, then with more voice around the world the discrimination issue can be solve as soon possible.

    Your sincerely,
    Casteven

In Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara is also known as Jetsun Dölma as a Buddhist saviour-goddess with numerous forms, widely popular in Nepal, Tibet, and Mongolia. She is the protective, helpful and comforting mother who shows limitless kindness, generosity and protection to all who rely on her.

    The importance of cleanliness in our lives cannot be denied. Maintaining a clean environment is for the health of all humans. As our health completely depends on the surrounding atmosphere. The practice of cleaning is not only for the environment, but also for our mind . We can change our recognition of cleaning from something that’s negative to something that’s positive, then our quality of life will improve. The importance of having a clean room, clean environment is to respect the people we invited to. To develop the clear mind, we need to be aware of being very mindful, everything should be clean. Make it as a practice, consistently .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    It’s so rejoiceful to see Mr Yao Ming the professional basketball player use his celebrities platform and reputation to lessen the suffering of others. Mr. Yao Ming speak for the unable to speak for themselves and so rely on us to protect them. Millions of sharks, which are endangered, will be saved thanks to Mr. Yao Ming’s actions. I hope more and more people will be inspired by his example to speak up against cruelty towards animals. With growing awareness of vegetarianism and so many options for food these days, even in mainstream restaurants, there is no need to keep consuming meat or seafood.

    Mount Fanjing in China at 2,572 meters above sea level, is situated in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province. In the 16th century, Mount Fanjing was one of China’s sacred Buddhist mountains. It is said to be the abode of Buddha Maitreya. In recent years, it has again become a popular tourist destination.

    Master Cheng Yen must have a very strong Dharma imprint. Even though in the beginning she did not have a teacher, she knew she wanted to be nun, she wanted to renounce and use her life to serve others. It was not easy to embark on the spiritual journey but it did not scare Master Cheng Yen. She found ways to spread Dharma and she has been very successful.

    Today, Tzu Chu foundation has its presence all around the world. Whenever there is a disaster, they will be the first to offer their help. Their selfless compassion is highly respected and acknowledged by many. This is how much impact one person can make if we walk the talk and show people by example. The most important thing is not to give up and be very determined in serving others.

    Back in 1996, H H Dalai Lama had made a controversial statement about Dorje Shugden that have caused much disharmony, sufferings among Tibetan Buddhism practitioners . The Tibetans were divided into two , families torn apart just as they do not agree and accept the practice of Dorje Shugden. The African Americans of black people and slavery , the women in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and some western U.S. states, slavery are some of the historical similarities with Dorje Shugden ban where they suffered badly such as physical abuses, denied services to hospitals, restaurants , schools and so forth having many signs and boards installed to prohibit them from entering. Those who refused to follow their order or to give up their practice were conform faced torture, imprisonment discrimination and abuse. Tibetans in exile, wicca, pagans and so forth are denied their rights of religious freedom. Everyone should have their own rights to choose what we believe and practice. The Dalai Lama have said that Dorje Shugden cannot harm him , as proven Dorje Shugden is not evil. It is recognised to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and a dharma protector. They (CTA ) should stopped and should not be involved in religion. Allow religious freedom for the sake of all, and future generations to come. Peace and harmony must be maintained, for the growth of a nation.
    Thank you Velentina for this well researched article to bring more awareness and knowledge for many of us and these abroad.

    A beautiful story of guru devotion of a Russian princess Buddhist nun. Very inspiring , she was a Russian-born French-American socialite, film actress, and Gelug Tibetan Buddhist nun. The legendary Zina Rachevsky was the earliest Western student and patron of Lama Yeshe . She came from an incredibly wealthy family, having everything money, fame, beauty yet she was not happy and that triggered her soul-searching. Travelling to India, that’s where she met Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa. That’s the first time they encounters with Westerners and Lama Yeshe was glad to learn that this wealthy lady came to them in search of enlightenment. Zina became the first Western student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa . It was her request and insisted that the Lamas to teach Westerners on Buddhism. She led her life to the fullest from her Hollywood days to renouncing everything.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring article of a princess turned nun.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

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

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
