  1. Thank you ISC and all who protested peacefully so patiently and purposefully. They are so devoted to their lama and lineage. May this add to the pressure on CTA and all those involved in enforcing the ban and especially on the Dalai Lama to change his mind and abolish the ban…

    Down with the Dorje Shugden ban!

  2. Happy to see so many people speak up to fight for religious freedom, from what I’ve seen in the picture and video that this is the first time demonstration can be so much happy faces around peacefully.

    Thank you ds.com admin posting so much update and good news !

  3. Thank you to the 700 ISC member who participated to let our voices heard to the CTA and DL. what we all want is religious freedom to practice this great lineage without being ostracize and treated like a criminal!

    with such rally more and more people across the globe will get to know more about who Dorje Shugden really is, how compassionate DS is to all. Truth will prevail, what ever the CTA and HH is doing, the world is watching every single action of them.

    what really baffles me is HHDL speaks of religious harmony, treating everyone with compassion, and need varieties of Method to develop compassion, so contradictory to what is being experience by all the Dorje Shugden practitioner, especially the Tibetans and the sangha at the Mnaestery in India who practices DS! WHERE IS OUR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM? WHERE IS RELIGIOUS HARMONY!


  4. This is great news! It is heartwarming to see so many Shugden practitioners joining in the protest in Washington and this time it included many Tibetans protestors. They all brave the cold to pressurise the Dalai Lama and CTA to remove the ban. The ISC certainly make a strong stand and had a close opportunity to question the Dalai Lama. ISC organise the protest well.

    The ban has to come down!

  5. The ban is shaking! It is weakening! The more the suppression the more the protest. Don’t dodge Dalai Lama. Give religious freedom.

  6. “His Holiness” either needs to change his name, or start living up to it.

  7. The name “His Holiness” is fast going down the drain with the ban.

  8. Very good! Very good! Its wonderful to see such a huge turn up to protest peacefully in the freezing cold. They all have such good guru devotion to be standing there and have raised their own funds to make sure they make it in time to protest. Everything was so organised and peaceful. Their voices are definitely heard all over the world.

    Many people around the world practicing Dorje Shugden has been suppressed by so many anti-ds it is good that these beautiful people are speaking up for them, being the voice for them.

    It’s being taken notice by the CTA, its being taken notice by H.H.D.L, its being taken notice by the anti-ds, but most importantly its being taken notice by the public and they will learn more about the ban and they will learn more why it is wrong.

    Lesly and Celine, we cannot put H.H.D.L down because through how much His Holiness has spread Dharma throughout the west we cannot stop His Holiness and ruin his reputation because there are still many hundred thousands possibly millions that has benefited from Buddhism or could benefit from it.

    All we should focus on is to peacefully focus on removing the ban and give us the religious freedom to practice Dorje Shugden and by doing so bringing more awareness to the public and the anti-ds community that what is going on is wrong.

  9. They were total 700 people stand up to voice out give religious freedom and Dalai Lama stop lying. I feel very touch that they are a group of people really care and dare to defence for their lineage, fight for religious freedom. Now is the time to make known to the public how unreasonable for the ban. The ISC members really done a very good job by having such peaceful rally. I believe more and more people will come in to tell Dalai Lama stop lying, lift the ban. By the time for those supporters of the ban will realise how innocent they follow blindly without any query on the ban. Please give religious freedom.

  10. It is heartwarming to see so many devoted practitioners near and afar gathered together for a peaceful protest to have the rights to religious freedom. What DS practitioners are asking for is to practice without being ostracized and treated like criminals. Not only are DS practitioners deprived of religious freedom, they are also deprive to freedom of speech. When two braved protestors managed to question the Dalai Lama; they were escorted out from the National Cathedral. http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=4713.0. What is baffling is that the Dalai Lama speaks of peace, harmony and compassion yet when it comes to Dorje Shugden practitioners it is the contrary.

    May the ban be lifted soon as it has already caused so much pain and sufferings.

  11. This quote from International Shugden Society representative Len Foley makes a powerful point; “One unacceptable aspect of the Dalai Lama’s discrimination right here in the US, is that he has openly banned people of this faith [Shugden faith] from attending his talk at the National Cathedral this week. This means that thousands of Americans who rely upon the practice of Dorje Shugden are not welcome to attend. To our knowledge this is the first time in the history of the National Cathedral that people have been turned away from this illustrious National monument on grounds of their religious belief.”

  12. Very well done Washington!

    We must make our voice heard, exposure the injustice behavior of CTA imposing the ban on Dorje Shugden practitioner.

    I must congratulate the two ISC members who asked the Dalai Lama if Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were wrong about Dorje Shugden. The Dalai Lama could not answer their second question. There is no room for lying or manipulation at all, as the whole wide world already knew that CTA and HHDL are behind the ban, there are just too many evidence and witness to testified against CTA and their cronies.

    We must be brave, have courage and don’t simply give up any work we are doing now to bring down this injustice ban, in fact, we need more people to joint forces with dorjeshugden.com to bring down the ban. We need to get all information and facts stated inside dorjeshugden.com spread out to lots more people, put on Facebook and twitter whenever we can, spread the words out! We need to be heard and we want more people to help doing this.

    We need more people who has the same courage like the ISC members that confront CTA and HHDL directly asking why are they doing this? No one can fool the public anyone cos we all know Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and he is a Buddha.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
