Are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Anti-Dalai Lama Chinese spies?

Irrational though it may sound, the Tibetan leadership vehemently accuses Dorje Shugden practitioners and those associated with them to be Chinese spies. Hence according to the Tibetan leadership’s logic, now that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have met Kelsang Sonam, a monk who practices Dorje Shugden, they must surely be anti-Dalai Lama Chinese spies.

In persecuting Dorje Shugden worshippers, the Tibetan government-in-exile known as the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA based in Dharamsala) falsely accused every Shugden practitioner to be a Chinese agent or working for the Chinese government against the 14th Dalai Lama. The CTA even passed a resolution declaring all Dorje Shugden worshippers to be “criminals in history”. Besides making a mockery of its own supposedly democratic constitution that provides for freedom of religion, these charges by the CTA are baseless and absurd. To begin with, the worship of this enlightened Tibetan deity precedes the formation of the Chinese Communist Party by at least 350 years.

The attack on Dorje Shugden worshippers is borne out of a toxic concoction of lies, ignorance and blind devotion to the Dalai Lama. The way the CTA whipped up hatred against Shugden practitioners is reminiscent of the way Hitler blamed the Jewish people for all the misfortune that befell pre- and post-World War 1 Germany. Although Hitler’s actions defied logic, it somehow whipped Germany into a frenzy of anti-Semitism. Similarly, it has today become etiquette for fans of the Dalai Lama to develop vitriolic and oftentimes violent resentment towards Dorje Shugden believers. It is now the norm for anyone seen with a Chinese national or Shugden worshipper to be regarded as ‘anti-Dalai Lama’ and ‘pro-human rights abuse’, as irrational as it may seem.

His Royal Highness Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex met Kelsang Sonam, a monk of the New Kadampa Tradition, at a cafe in Merseyside, North West England. Prince Harry told Gen Kelsang that he meditates every day and happily accepted a copy of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso‘s 8 Steps to Happiness, saying he will definitely read it. According to the CTA’s illogical argument, this must mean that Prince Harry is a Chinese spy, in the same way his grandmother Her Majesty the Queen must also be an agent of Beijing for having hosted the Chinese President Xi Jinping.

A good example of this brutish malice was seen recently in the way supporters of the Tibetan leadership turned on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. What was their crime? Not much except they happened to have a chat with a Buddhist monk who also happens to be a Dorje Shugden practitioner. Prince Harry and Meghan were visiting a café and supermarket in Merseyside, North West England when they spoke with the locals. Among the crowd was 69-year old Kelsang Sonam, a monk of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) which is well known for its proliferation of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. NKT also happens to be known for its outspoken protests against the Dalai Lama’s ban on the Shugden religious practice.

To those who are intent on criticizing, it does not matter how well a monk keeps his vows, how compassionate he is or how purely he practices the Buddha’s teachings. It does not matter what good he has done for the community, nor does it matter that he is a good citizen who is just exercising his freedom to practice his faith. The instant he is known to be a believer of Dorje Shugden, it is the CTA’s logic that he should be regarded as a villain and persecuted for his religion, just like other forms of bigotry that persecute a person based on the color of their skin, their gender or their nationality. Similarly, it does not matter who the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are. The belief of anti-Shugden supporters is that just by being friendly with a Shugden monk, the Duke and Duchess are deserving of condemnation and enmity. In the eyes of the CTA’s supporters, everything that the public loves about Harry and Meghan is to be immediately disregarded solely because they were friendly with a Dorje Shugden believer. This is the extent to which the CTA has fanned hatred against Dorje Shugden believers over the last two decades which today continues to burn wildly.

Click to enlarge and read a selection of the hundreds of comments online about the Duke and Duchess, and their conversation with Kelsang Sonam of the NKT.

Shugden haters like to show pictures of protests by monks campaigning against the Tibetan leadership’s Dorje Shugden ban as evidence of cultish behavior. It defies reason that people who value freedom should be criminalized when they protest against a bad government’s trespass on the citizens’ constitutional rights. And yet this is precisely what the situation is. The outcry that arose amongst Dalai Lama fans against Price Harry and Meghan’s public appearance with a Dorje Shugden monk is a good indicator of how silly and yet dangerous the CTA’s fanning of hatred is. A Buddhist monk becomes a delinquent solely because of his worship of one deity, amongst the pantheon of Buddhas and Protectors he supplicates. A leader who cares for and is interested in his people becomes blameworthy because he does not share the haters’ prejudice and intolerance.

Shugden haters would like the public to believe that the worship of Dorje Shugden is synonymous with political support for the Chinese Communist Government who in turn is tagged with a litany of human rights abuses. In truth, this is an invention of the CTA’s propaganda arm, a falsehood concocted when they ran out of justifications for unlawfully breaching the basic human rights of Buddhists who happen to rely on Dorje Shugden. The Dalai Lama himself practiced Dorje Shugden for decades before he named this Tibetan deity as the scapegoat for all the CTA’s failures. Until then, Dorje Shugden has historically and traditionally been an apolitical religious ritual. This did not stop the CTA from falsely claiming that this Tibetan Buddhist deity works for the Chinese government, although the CTA has never articulated exactly how this works. Neither the Dalai Lama nor CTA has ever explained why the Chinese government would want to co-opt an estimated four million Dorje Shugden Buddhists, mostly non-Tibetans and spread around the world, in its conflict with the Dalai Lama.

However, even if Dorje Shugden is a pro-China religion, what is wrong with that? Why is it a crime to have good relations with the Chinese government? Even the Royal House of Windsor maintains cordial relations with the Chinese government and has hosted the visit of President Xi Jinping with pomp and circumstance. Is the House of Windsor too filled with Chinese spies, starting with Her Majesty the Queen and now the Duke and Duchess? As ridiculous as that sounds, that is precisely what the CTA would have us believe, if we were to follow their logic that any association with China or Dorje Shugden practitioners means someone is an agent of Beijing.

It does not matter that someone is a monk, holds vows and is a lawful citizen who tries to benefit his community. In the eyes of the CTA, the fact he practices Dorje Shugden overrides everything else, and automatically qualifies him and anyone else associated with him as a Chinese spy and anti-Dalai Lama traitor. In this case, it means that the CTA now views Meghan Markle as a Chinese spy.

The objective of the British monarch is the economic prosperity of the British people and with China being an economic giant, in a highly globalized world, it has become a necessity and a matter of survival to have China as a trading partner. Why is it wrong for the British monarch and British government to place the welfare of the British people ahead of the Dalai Lama’s political agenda? This logic applies to governments of the world that have good diplomatic ties with China. And if it is not wrong for governments of the world to preserve amicable ties with China, how is it a crime for Shugden Buddhists to have friends who are Chinese?

The anti-Shugden camp’s criticism of Duke and Duchess of Sussex for merely being seen with a Dorje Shugden practitioner should be treated as an eye-opener for the violent abuses and discrimination suffered by Shugden-reliant Buddhists for over two decades. Should Prince Harry and his wife have obeyed the diktats of the Dalai Lama to ostracize and shun all Dorje Shugden worshippers, even if they are British citizens entitled to practice their religion freely without being molested? In the CTA’s eyes, being seen with a Dorje Shugden practitioner makes Prince Harry an anti-Dalai Lama monarch and one who supports China’s alleged human rights abuses. We can see Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s books, teachings, Dorje Shugden practice and videos will reach more people in UK, Europe and the world in this current generation and definitely into future generations. In modern, democratic nations beyond the influence of the CTA, where the people have cast off the yoke of suppression, whether it be freedom of religion or freedom of speech, it is in these places that Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s works will persist and grow.

So should the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have flouted British laws on religious freedoms, in order to support the CTA’s conflict with China? Should Kelsang Sonam, the 69-year old NKT monk be denied his rights provided under the British Constitution, just because of his worship of Dorje Shugden? Perhaps he should have been taken away and hidden from sight because as a Dorje Shugden practitioner, the CTA has automatically deemed him to be a criminal. In fact, the CTA should seek to emulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who meet, share and communicate with people from all backgrounds, cultures, races, beliefs, faiths and religions without prejudice. The Duke and Duchess show, by example, what a truly democratic leader should look like – someone who understands their duties as a leader to serve everyone, regardless of whether they share the same beliefs as them. But who knows if the CTA will ever understand this message because if the Dalai Lama and his people were to have their way, the answer is always going to be ‘yes’ to all the questions raised above.

  1. Re: “We Need To Talk About Shugden” group on Facebook

    There was that ridiculous group WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT SHUGDEN on facebook. It was started by a disgruntled ex-’nun’ of NKT. She was power hungry and wanted high positions in NKT. She was far from qualified to get any higher positions as she was slow to learn dharma and couldn’t absorb any teachings. Kinda like a mule. But she wanted to tell people what to do, be a decision maker and have some prestige and power. Prior to NKT, she never made it in life and had broken marriage as her husband couldn’t stand her egomaniac ways. Not getting any high positions, she quit NKT and decided suddenly she is a survivor of their abuse. LOL. Abuse? How was she abused? Well she went on a long list of rants on WNTTAS facebook group about her ‘abuser’ (NKT). She had a couple of other losers (older unfulfilled woman) who ranted on with her for a while and now the group is defunct. After all, how many years can you rant with your group of old biddies and not get bored of yourself? The public was so bored of them and they had hardly any supporters and people to back them up. After a while the people that did back them saw through the ruse. The point is they did all they can to discredit NKT and it didn’t make a dent against NKT. NKT continues to flourish and grow while the starter of WNTTAS (I think her name is Carole or something like that) spirals down into old age, manic depression and dementia. I read somewhere she is at the beginning stages of dementia. Poor old biddy. I hope she has caregivers. I guess her karma caught up.

    If she is still coherent with her WNTTAS group, they would DIE STANDING knowing Prince Harry of UK is now reading books by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso!! Their little worn out silly FB group could do nothing to damage Geshe Kelsang or NKT! They have no books, no centre, no organizations and no accomplishments at all. Truth does prevail after a while!!

    • There was one really old woman named Linda and she use to spend her money and old age going on cruises. So much attachments and so old and she wants to tell the rest of us what is right and not right in Buddhism. She was particularly nasty and bitter on this We Need To Talk About Shugden FB page. I didn’t like Dorje Shugden at the time, but after reading her nasty, hateful and very un-Buddhist comments, I started reading up more on Dorje Shugden. I wanted to investigate myself. Now I like Dorje Shugden. I have been practicing for a year or so now and I find it has helped me very much.

      Picture of Linda, one of her rare better pictures


      • Hahaha! This is funny. Instead of turning others away, the lame group is actually increasing interest in Dorje Shugden and thus leading people to his practice which is efficacious and so, so powerfully swift. Hmmm too bad they won’t get any credit or merits for this since they do so inadvertently on bad intentions.

    • I feel a bit sorry for Carol. I hope she has learned her lesson but somehow I feel that the bad karma she amassed from defaming her teacher and Dorje Shukden has yet to ripen. It cannot be a good result for all the harm she did to innocent people and for trying to damage the pure Dharma.

      Its ridiculous for her to think that she was right and a great teacher of Geshe la’s ilk was wrong. How foolish and embarrassing when the Dalai Lama changes his mind about Dorje Shukden again.

    • Yeah, just a bunch of disgruntled ex-practitioners (if they can be even called practitioners as they obviously did not bother to transform any part of their mind). All they had been doing is indulge in digging deeper and creating more karma for themselves. Practitioners are supposed to lessen any attachments to their negative minds and see the best in others. Here this group is only focused on bringing down any good that others had done. Well, too bad for them, obviously their negativities are not working as Prince Edward and his lovely wife are far more intelligent to recognize jealousy. 😂😅😂

  2. Tenzin Peljor is agent employed by CTA. The Internet is littered with evidences of his spreading propaganda calling others cult. He is a fake acting knowledgeable. Best to stay away from him…. 🙏🙏

    • I agree with you. More people should take Tenzin Peljor the stasi East German ‘monk’ to court and sue him. He has to be sued by more people he has defamed. Lama Ole Nydahl did the right thing by taking this stasi ‘monk’ to court.

      • Dear Lama Ole Nydahl Supporter,

        Your wish may come true. I know a few groups that are consulting legal counsel about taking Tenzin Peljor to court. Lama Ole’s case has shown that the way to get Peljor to stop is to sue him under civil provisions. That was he has an obligation to respond to each suit.

        Keep him locked in legal battles for a long time and see how he feels.

        Peljor is not solely to blame as he is acting on behalf of the CTA’s interest.

  3. Even if you don’t talk to any Shugden Buddhists CTA will frame you as one if they have a reason or without reason wanting to get rid of you. That is how CTA run their little Tibetan settlements and any oversea Tibetan Buddhists centers. By law CTA has no power over other countries Tibetan Buddhists centers but apparently these centers have been brainwashed by the CTA hate propaganda.

  4. The Duke and Duchess are modern, open and spiritual people. It was nice to see their pictures talking to a Buddhist monk. Thank you.👍

  5. Here in the UK, anyone can practice any religion they want. If someone cries foul, that is their tough luck. It’s not like in Tibetan society where you are controlled by some ‘god’ King who dictates what you can and cannot practice which is the hallmark of NOT being a dictatorship.

  6. I’ve been operating an online hate group on FB against the NKT. I use to be a part of that organization. I loved my guru Geshe Kelsang, but I didn’t like some of the underlings who ran the organization. I was there for over a decade and it was time for me to be given a position of a teacher and have the respect I felt I deserved. I didn’t get what I wanted and I felt angry and slighted. It reminded me of my abandonment issues I’ve had throughout my life. I’ve never belonged anywhere and people usually left me and I just couldn’t stand it. I got my personal emotional issues mixed up with my spiritual direction. I projected my personal issues onto my teacher and the organization and I have done that so many times in my life ruining good situations.

    I left NKT and told whoever would listen to me who I was abused in NKT. I started a FB page to encourage other ‘victims’ to speak out against NKT. Being the vast organization that NKT is, it was not difficult to find other people who had left for one reason or another and had things to say against NKT. Our little group even got close to some of the events coordinators of the Dalai Lama and we were given a chance to take pictures with Dalai Lama which we promptly did. The photo with the Dalai Lama we thought gave us some validation towards our stance against NKT-but it backfired. It gave us a high to have a photo with the Dalai Lama but after a while we realized we can never be close to the Dalai Lama. We can never get the care and amount of teachings we use to get from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Being close to the Dalai Lama is like celebrity worship not so much as having a personal guru who is there for us.

    I regret opening my FB page as it vented out my rage and it was the platform for many other people who had blame and anger issues to collect vast amounts of negative karma. We were never able to have any cases or legal suits against NKT with all of our bantering because there was nothing substantial or genuine in the so called abuses we claimed we received while in NKT. NKT continues to grow while the rest of us who left are nowhere in life. Nowhere in our spiritual practice and just living empty lives. For me I’ve gotten tired of the page I’ve started and FB and it’s a horrendous effort to go there to post things or read any comments. Barely anyone visits the page anyways these days. How much can people vent out their anger at someone or something which is not to blame in the first place?

    I don’t have the courage to apologize to my teacher or rejoin NKT because I am a coward. I’ve always been a coward looking for the easy way out. But I am thinking about it. I realize my mistakes. I realized my mistakes which comes from me.

  7. Well, I am waiting for the day that Lobsang Sangay tells the world about the new Chinese spies, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

    This will be quite a shock to the world what the Central Tibetan Administration is accusing innocent people of. And the Tibetan Government who wants to appear so democratic!

    This will be a good wake up! 😜😜😜

  8. When Dorje Shugden ban was imposed by the Tibetan leadership, one of the reasons given to justify the ban was Dorje Shugden is a demon and anyone that practices his practice is a demon worshipper. Hence, Buddhist centres around the world that practices Dorje Shugden are being accused of demon worshipping and this includes the NKT centres by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

    NKT used to be very outspoken about the Dorje Shugden ban and held protests to voice our their disagreement on the ban. Since then, they are being labeled with negative names just because they fight for their own religious freedom. Tibetan leadership has no right to ban another religion because it will be against the democratic constitution that they claimed to have adopted into their constitution.

    The visit of Duke and Duchess of Sussex to NKT premise proved to the world that NKT is not a demon-worshipping group. There is no way the Prince and Princess of England will be allowed to visit a cult that worships a demon. Prince Harry also had a talk with a Geshe from NKT and was gifted a book by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso which he happily accepted and said that he will be reading it.

  9. Karmapa Thaye Dorje Ignores the Dalai Lama

    (1) Decades ago, the Shamarpa asked the Dalai Lama to endorse Thaye Dorje as the Karmapa. Shamarpa proved to the Dalai Lama that Thaye Dorje was the Karmapa. The Dalai Lama still refused as it will make the Dalai Lama look bad for endorsing Ogyen Trinley. ~

    It is known that Tai Situ Rinpoche recognized Ogyen Trinley by stealth. Tai Situ Rinpoche used the Dalai Lama’s fame to promote his Ogyen Trinley candidate in order to secure the Karmapa wealth of many generations.

    (2) Even though the Dalai Lama endorsed Ogyen Trinley as Karmapa, Thaye Dorje could not be restrained and continues to grow immensely in popularity all over the world. Even without the Dalai Lama’s endorsement, the Karmapa Thaye Dorje is growing in importance. Tai Situ Rinpoche thought that without the Dalai Lama’s endorsement, the Karmapa Thaye Dorje would fall and become nothing. He was wrong.

    (3) Shamarpa Rinpoche had asked the Dalai Lama to at least ordain Thaye Dorje as a monk when he was very young and the Dalai Lama refused. This refusal hurt Shamarpa and the Karmapa Thaye Dorje very much. The Dalai Lama sidelined Shamarpa Rinpoche and Thaye Dorje. It was a grievous insult and detrimental interference. In the Karma Kagyu tradition it is the Shamarpa who is the first and foremost to recognize the Karmapas and only in his absence do other regents recognize the Karmapas. Not only did the Dalai Lama interfere in Karma Kagyu affairs but the Dalai Lama took sides. That caused so much fighting and disharmony within the Karma Kagyu school of Buddhism. Tai Situ Rinpoche was wrong not to consult with Shamarpa Rinpoche in all of this.

    (4) The Dalai Lama had no business interfering in Karma Kagyu traditions by recognizing a Karmapa. In the history of the Karma Kagyu school, there has not been one Karmapa recognized by a Dalai Lama nor did they ever need the Dalai Lama’s endorsement. This interference by the Dalai Lama has caused the Karma Kagyu school to take two sides and broke them up and created much disharmony. The disharmony, fighting and mud-slinging as to which one is the real Karmapa has continued to this day in 2019.

    (5) Shamarpa Rinpoche passed away in 2014 and it is up to the Karmapa to recognize his incarnation without the endorsement or interference of the Dalai Lama.

    (6) Now the Karmapa Thaye Dorje recognizes his son born in 2018 as Shamarpa Rinpoche’s incarnation and he does not ask the Dalai Lama to endorse this incarnation. He does not need it. The Dalai Lama has done enough damage. This will shift the dynamics of the Karma Kagyu school again in favor of the Shamarpa Rinpoche’s side. Unfortunately, it will make Ogyen Trinley look strange and left out in the cold. Within the Kagyu school, the Shamarpa is the next highest incarnation after the Karmapa. The Karmapas always recognized Shamarpas and vice versa. It shows that the Karmapa Thaye Dorje has the full authority to recognize the next highest incarnation within their school on his own. This Shamarpa will be spiritually trained by the Karmapa Thaye Dorje himself without the influence of the aged Dalai Lama and his government-in-exile which most Karma Kagyus consider a regime.

    (7) During the Kagyu Monlam prayers in Bodhgaya on January 2019, Thaye Dorje was there leading the Monlam (New Year’s prayers) and so was the Dalai Lama in Bodhgaya, giving teachings in another location nearby. The Dalai Lama, while in Bodhgaya, wanted to meet Thaye Dorje but Thaye Dorje refused. Thaye Dorje avoided the Dalai Lama. It was an insult to the Dalai Lama that he had to accept for all the damage he had done in their Karmapa affair and Karma Kagyu school.

    The Dalai Lama had sidelined Shamarpa and Thaye Dorje when asked to endorse Thaye Dorje decades ago. Now that the Karmapa Ogyen Trinley has run away to the USA, the Dalai Lama wants to be friendly with Thaye Dorje so that he can get on the Karma Kagyu school’s good side. Without the Dalai Lama’s permission, the two Karmapas met in France and decided to mend the rift. This will make the Dalai Lama look bad. Even the Dalai Lama did not think in such a big way or a middle way to help mend the rift. Too bad and too late for the Dalai Lama to make friends with the Karma Kagyu school of Buddhism.

    So much damage has been done. But the Karmapa Thaye Dorje is on the way to mending all this.

  10. Contemplate this :

    Indian journalists sound desperate when they talk about terrorist attacks on India. As this article correctly states, there is little that India can do to address terrorism as they seem to operate from Pakistan. To deal with the terrorists, Indians will have to literally attack Pakistan which it cannot do.

    Well, there is something India can do which is to stop Dharamsala’s terrorist activities against China being executed from Indian soil. The Tibetans have been attacking China for decades, yet they say they wish to return to Tibet. How do you return to a place you constantly criticize? The Dalai Lama is literally begging China to allow him to visit the Five Peaks of Manjushri pilgrimage site in China and also his birthplace in Amdo, Tibet. But if the Dalai Lama keeps criticizing China, why would they sit at the bargaining table with him? India allows for all of this to happen on Indian soil, so that would irritate China.

    Yet India wants concessions from China on the terrorist issue. Meanwhile, Beijing equates Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader Hafiz Saeed to India supporting the Dalai Lama against China for five decades now. Furthermore, India wants China to speak up against Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) Masood Azhar. But India does not speak up against Dalai Lama. Whether the world thinks the Dalai Lama is the good guy or not, he is a thorn in China’s side so anyone that supports him is not supporting China. Similar to the situation, LeT’s Hafiz Saeed and JeM’s Masood Azhar are a thorn in India’s side but they do not bother China and her allies, so why should China do anything about them? If India does something on the Dalai Lama, then it would be fair to ask China to do something about their support of Lashkar-e-Taiba leader Hafiz Saeed and Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Masood Azhar. Simple equation.

    These reports are really bare-faced hypocrisy. It implies one nation is helpless against terrorists because the terrorists camp out in another country. But that did not stop the US from heavily bombing Iraq on the basis that it was harboring terrorists. The US did not hesitate to overthrow the government and murder its leader Saddam Hussein.

    It is also very hypocritical that the same journalists who are outraged at China’s annexation of Tibet are quiet about Israel’s annexation of Palestine.

    It is interesting to note that most terrorist attacks are aimed at the US and her allies. Everyone conveniently forgets that the US has been throwing their weight around for decades and can even determine which leader they want in other countries.

    Back to India – if China can convince North Korea to have détente with the US, China can similarly help India with the JeM. India simply has to give up the Tibet card. The article is also a one-sided opinion piece because India faces as many terrorist threats from Bangladesh, with just as many terrorist camps, but because Bangladesh is not China, their involvement is not mentioned.

    India is a great country. China and India as friends will be able to influence the globe literally economically and, eventually, militarily. But India has to play fair. By supporting the Dalai Lama, India will get nothing and furthermore, it will be a stumbling block to China’s 1.4 billion people becoming friends with India’s 1.3 billion people.

    The Dalai Lama has to be compassionate and stop speaking against China because he has to consider the difficulty he places India in as his host. Each time he criticizes and allows his refugees to protest against China and ask for western support, it makes China look bad. So if the Dalai Lama wants China and India to become closer and benefit each other economically then he has to be silent on this already.

    The Diplomat’s Prarthana Basu sums it up very well by saying in the article below that “Now with another terrorist attack infuriating India’s populace, the mystery behind this Chinese silence remains unsolved. While most attribute China’s apparent silence as a favor to Pakistan, as both continue to maintain their “all-weather friendship,” others argue that China holds India responsible for granting political asylum to the Tibetan leader Dalai Lama, whom Beijing equates to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader Hafiz Saeed.”

  11. Carol and her gang should think why the British royalty is not visiting them? Who is more likely the cult? Carol and the gang or the NKT? It is very good that the British royalty visited the NKT, it says a lot about the credibility of the NKT.

    Unlike what Carol has claimed, NKT under the guidance of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso has been doing a great job in spreading Dharma. They have thousands of Dharma centres worldwide, they have a big publishing house and Geshela’s books are widely available in bookstores all around the world in different languages. What Geshela has achieved is remarkable.

    The pathetic Carol is just a crazy, miserable, bitter old woman who cannot get the attention she wants and decided to take revenge on NKT and Geshela. She was so blinded that she has forgotten about karma. She disparages her own guru and she will end up in hell when she dies.

  12. 1st Time Dalai Lama Finally Admits His Illness Was Serious

    In the past it is customary to cover up the Dalai Lama’s illnesses. It could be to not worry his flock. It could also be to not show the world he is just another vulnerable human being. Or it could be he does not want to disappoint people to show he is not a god? Whatever the reasons, the Dalai Lama and regime are well known for covering up his serious illnesses. In the past few years he had cancer of the prostate and that was covered up till the press dug it up. Now with this new video just out April 2019, Dalai Lama admits he was recently very ill. It was serious.

    Unfortunately the Tibetan cause will die with the Dalai Lama when he passes. He did nothing to groom up a new leader as he is a dictator. A ruler for life. He has been in power for over 60 years. He will never groom up another person to replace him because he is touted as a god.

  13. Unlike 5 years ago, Tibetan leader Lobsang Sangay is not invited to Prime Minister Modi’s swearing-in ceremony this time. It is clear that PM Modi of India snubs the Tibetan leadership once again in favour of deeper ties with China. The Tibetan leadership finds itself increasingly isolated as nobody wants to offend China by lending any support to the ungrateful Tibetans.

    PM Modi snubs Tibetan leadership for swearing-in ceremony
    By Tenzin Dharpo
    May. 30, 2019
    DHARAMSHALA, May 30: The Indian Prime Minister who is fresh off of a massive win in the Indian Lok Sabha elections has done a U-turn by not inviting exile Tibetan government’s President to the swearing in ceremony due to be held later today, in a bid to not anger Beijing.
    The President of the exile Tibetan government, known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration, Dr. Lobsang Sangay’s absence today at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi marks a stark contrast to 2014 when the elected Tibetan leader was seated in the former rows at the ceremony when PM Modi was sworn into office the first time around.
    The invitation to Dr. Sangay in May 2014 drew strong objection from the Chinese government who lodged an official protest censuring New Delhi’s disregard for the so-called ‘One-China policy’. Many said at the time that the invite was posturing at most, of Modi’s intent to India’s neighbor and biggest rivals both in Asia and global arenas.
    The New Delhi-Beijing relations post the Doklam stand off and Wuhan summit has meant that India has given a cold shoulder to the exile Tibetan set up, thereby taking a step back in using the much-touted ‘Tibet card’. The shift in policy has markedly been seen on the ground with New Delhi issuing an advisory to senior leaders to avoid His Holiness the Dalai Lama or pushing the CTA to shift the “thank you India” ceremony from New Delhi to Dharamshala last year.
    The head of the Tibetan polity who extended pleasantries to PM Modi on his win, however may have anticipated the snub. Days after Modi’s historic election win, Sangay flew to the United States and is scheduled to return on June 5 to India next week.

  14. Whether which spiritual groups or organization we are in, all religions or spiritual growth thought us to be compassion, forgive, generous, kindness etc.. We all are living into millennium year, which means is a FREEDOM choice, thinking, decisions century. People are demanding simple, happy life now. Why create commotion among religious beliefs?
    Buddhism says that, desire is one of the 3 poisons of mind. People who craves power will lead them no where and only ended up being depressed, unhappy and anger.

  15. Sometimes being illogical and nonsensical attracts attention. That is the reason why CTA encourages their supporters to talk without basis to attract attention. After all attention is attention for the limelight.

    It is insane that so much ill words are written against the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when all they did was have a conversation with their British subject who is a monk and a monk who believes and propagates Dorje Shugden.

    There is no need for so much slander as members of the British Royal Household, they have the right to talk to and address anybody on British soil. They uphold the British constitution of religious freedom and human rights.

    Is it possible that one day Lobsang Sangay will call the Duke & Duchess Chinese spies because they read a book by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso? Let us hope not.

  16. It’s hilarious when I first heard that Shugden practitioners are Chinese spies. Thumbs up to cta and all the blind followers of DL. Do they even hear themselves speak? It definitely didn’t sound like the brain was being used. These people really need wisdom from Dorje Shugden. Again I must stress that education and facts of Dorje Shugden ban play very important roles here. We are not living in the past where someone said something and we believe blindly without checking. Even Buddha asked us to check before we commit. Buddha is full of wisdom and compassion, perhaps anti DS people should open their eyes and ears and most importantly use their brain to think before following blindly.

  17. In the same logic, whoever are seen with Chinese leaders are branded by the CTA as Chinese collaboraters including all heads of countries, religious and spiritual leaders, actors, singers, businessmen, and all influential people. That does not seem logical at all. But it is not surprising because most of those in the CTA do not use logic, just blind ‘faith’ for their personal gains. 

  18. It is sad to see how blind people are who blindly believe what CTA has projected. Come on, to Prince Harry he doesn’t know what is Dorje Shugden, what is Kadampa and what controversy you all have, he only knows a Tibetan Buddhism monk who holds his vows is a good teacher to teach him Dharma. Who cares which Buddhist center you are from, who cares which protector you practice, who even care who is CTA???? As long as he’s a monk, he teaches Dharma, he holds his vows, the spread Dharma, that’s it! CTA and all the Dalai Lama supporters are really out of their mind! To all Dalai Lama and CTA supporters: Let me ask all of you, does Buddhism teach hatred? If it doesn’t, then who teaches CTA and all you supporters to hate Dorje Shugden supporters??? CTA spread hate speeches about Dorje Shugden practitioners, are they even qualified to be the leader of the Tibetans and even represent the Dalai Lama? What’s wrong that Prince Harry seeks teaching from a monk that practices Dorje Shugden? All the negative comments are really ridiculous!

  19. This is really making no sense. Can this people stop these nonsense? Everyone has their own rights to befriend another person and also the religion that wishes to embrace. How can these say Prince Harry is anti Dalai Lama just because he chatted with a monk who practices Dorje Shugden? It does not make sense. These CTA people are still living in their ancient way of thinking which is causing them a lot of problem lately.

  20. It’s very obvious now the British royal family are also Chinese spies! Thanks blind narrow minded foolish CTA supporters!

  21. Some people are just sick, they can’t stop themselves to bring harms to people and CTA is an example..😔


  22. CTA says Shugden practitioner is a Chinese agent or working for the Chinese government against the 14th Dalai Lama, in other words, being a Chinese spies already happened for the last 350 years in Tibet because the practice of Dorje Shugden has been around 350 years already. Furthermore, what about Pabongkha Rinpoche . Zong Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche, they are Shugden practitioners, are they also Chinese spies? If they were doing something bad to the Tibetans, why can they reincarnated back to teach Buddhism. In this regards, CTA was proofing that there is no “Karma “ . ????? CTA has a higher wisdom than Buddha…….

  23. Forget about just simple blaming people who close to Dorje Shugden practitioner as China as a spies. People around the world are try to be friend with China since China economy growing to world number 1. Only people left like CTA and America are so egolitic affaid to China. Either the people at CTA is right and or the people suppose China is wrong. This are people whose to close to Dorje Shugden at all. What CTA have to said.

  24. For whatever goals that CTA would like to achieve for themselves for their people for what had happened in 1959 and for the people who had further sacrifices their lives for Tibetan cause. That’s political issue which It should not involve people faith and believes. Dorje Shugden ban will only split the Tibetan and the millions of Dorje Shugden practitioners further which do not bring any benefits to the Tibetan cause. Why spend time and resources on matters that bring further damage to the people who already suffering? Where is the compassion and where is the unity and where is the humanity?

    How Tibet and China used to be in good term for the last hundreds of years, I’m sure there’s a reasons and ways. No matter HHDL is going back to Tibet or not, I am sure they know what to do.

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.
