  1. Another hypocritical event where Dalai Lama toured the United States to speak about humanity but none is shown back home towards His Holiness’ own people. Thousands of Shugdenpas within the Tibetan in exile community suffer for the last 20 years because they are being unfairly discriminated and inhumanely ostracized in the Tibetan community under Dalai Lama’s leadership.

    Shugdenpas are forced out of jobs and denied medical aid. Even death rituals are being denied for the deceased. 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 United States can turn a blind eye 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.
