  1. Please be happy, n you must check youtube: Boston truthful Tibetan public talk episode 17. At least most of you will open eyes for own peace of mind n harmony, when we have toooo much attachment, we loose our sense of judging right or wrong.

  2. @Anonymous – that video is so full of crap. That ‘monk’ only talks and doesn’t produce a single shred of evidence. He talks about having proof but where is his proof? He doesn’t show any paperwork, any photographs, any bank deposit slips, any receipts. All he does is talk, and anyone can appear in front of a camera and talk lies. No one logical or with common sense will believe that video as ‘proof’ or ‘real’. He is a fake lama trying to be a Rinpoche, and going around blackmailing Sakya Trizin and Penor Rinpoche by using the Dalai Lama’s name. We know who he is.

  3. In my humble opinion religious freedom should be given to everyone. Religion is definitely a very personal thing; no one can or should coerce another to stop a practice or force another into their practice. Mutual respect for each others religion is important to achieve peace and Enlightment !!

  4. Hannah, you are right, you used the word crab: this lama used to be the most important person in shugden world for last so many years. He knows exactly how some shugden lamas use innocent western dharma practitioner to protest. Its sooo sad. I am quite sure since i know this lama who was chairman of shugden group. Truth will come out very soon, jus relax n be patience. By the way what proof you guys have to protest except those propaganda? Ignorance is causes of all the sufferings. May truth prevail sooon, so people like you n me can live together as true dharma friends, be careful for those who using you n creating lots of confusion hate towards other Buddhist practitioners for their own gain to fullfill the communist chaina. So please we need to be careful.

  5. Everyone check out the fundraising scandal of the Dalai Lama foundation! How can he claim himself the Tibetan spiritual leader while using the money for other use……

  6. @ Anonymous:
    The proofs that you ask from Hannah are all there on this website.
    Have you seen those photos with posters from the Tibetan Settlement in India where it reads that in Clinics, Restaurants and Monasteries Shugden Followers are not welcome. That is segregation ( apartheid) which is one of the worst forms of discrimination.

  7. The discrimination and segregation of Dorje Shugden practitioners from their basic rights is definitely real and still happening today. People who do not believe should personally go visit some of these communities in India and see for themselves. Something must definitely be done to get rid of such unfair practices. I pray daily for this ban to end. It does not benefit anyone at all. Both sides of pro and anti-DS is not benefiting from this situation. We should move on and allow religious freedom for all.

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.
