England: Peaceful Demonstration Coverage

From 13 – 21 September 2015, H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama toured the UK for 9 days, giving teachings and talks in various major cities. The Dalai Lama spoke about providing a safe haven and long term solutions for the influx of refugees into Europe, describing such actions as humane. However, right outside, hundreds of Shugden practitioners demonstrated peacefully against the Dalai Lama calling for him to show them compassion as well, by giving religious freedom through lifting his ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice. DorjeShugden.com has been closely following the protests organised by our fellow Shugdenpas to bring our readers this compilation of news, pictures and videos. Please do visit this post over the next few days as we continue to update this article with new photos and videos.

  1. The Dalai Lama, actually said that this ban and segregation was started by Dorje Shugden Lamas and people. How can BBC broadcast such lies like this?
    The standard of journalism and reporting has gone to the dogs.

  2. These demonstrations are important to create awareness peacefully for the unlawful ban of Dorje Shugden. For 20 years, various methods have been applied for a dialogue to taken place between the Dalai Lama office and the Shugden practitioners. A ban is a discrimination, and it is against the core teachings of Buddhism, including those that is preached by His Holiness – kindness and compassion. Kindness and compassion should be applicable to everyone equally regardless of one’s choice of practice like Dorje Shugden.

  3. Demonstrations have create awareness to leave the ban of Dorje Shugden in order for all practitioner to stay peacefully while practicing dharma. We respect all religions, this is the basic of being kind and compassion. Please leave the ban and give freedom for Dorje Shugden practitioner.

  4. It is very hypocritical that Dalai Lama toured the United Kingdom to speak about humanity yet he shows none of that back at home. Thousands of Shugdenpas suffer because they are being suppressed and ostracized in the Tibetan community under Dalai Lama’s leadership.

    Shugdenpas are forced out of jobs and denied medical aid. Monks who practiced Dorje Shugden are forced to leave the monastery if they cannot renounce their vows to their Guru who bestowed them the practice. It is strange that the West, like the UK, turn a blind eyes to all the controversial and continue to embrace Dalai Lama despite having him violated human rights for 20 years.

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.
