New York City: Peaceful Demonstrations Coverage

New York City was the final destination in the Dalai Lama’s recent USA tour, where he was scheduled to give a 3-day teaching. Once again, the Dalai Lama had to face both Western and Tibetan Shugden practitioners, who were peacefully demonstrating for religious freedom at the various locations where the Dalai Lama was scheduled to appear.

  1. I do agree with Robert Thurman that the Dalai Lama is not to be accused of lying & being false as claimed by the certain individuals or groups of protestors. There are certainly much underlining reasons & greater results that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is trying to achieve which we ordinary beings are no able to see & comprehend at this stage. Although there were no violence or blood shed incidents during the peaceful protest by DS supporters as covered in this article, nevertheless there were actually serious discrimination, denial of medical and social supports & even physical harms towards some DS practitioners living in the Tibetan Community in exile. Such incidents and many more were covered in DS.com, such as;

    http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/features/an-appeal-against-violence/

    As in the above links & using the illegal religious ban as a basis for their selfish goals, these individuals or groups of individuals who acted out of their ignorance are the main perpetrators of the actual events, ridicule, bodily harm & discrimination towards the Dorje Shugden practitioners. Hence, it is only logical that for His Holiness the Dalai Lama to lift the ban immediately in order to restore peace among the Tibetan community & put a complete stop to the harassments & physical harm to all Dorje Shugden practitioners forever.

  2. I was very moved to see the video on the protests. Thank you to our fellow dharma brothers and sisters for standing up for Shugden Tibet and India who do not have the freedom to protest for themselves. Shugden practitioners suffered tremendously from a lack of religious freedom, and they do not deserve the harsh treatment and the suppression. It is very un-Buddhist to slander and persecute those who have a close faithful relationship with Dorje Shugden as an emanation of a Buddha. Dorje Shugden is not a spirit but a Wisdom Buddha, an emanation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas appearing in a wrathful form to protect practitioners from their own inner enemies of the delusions. The people have worshipped for 400 years and Dalai Lama himself worshipped the deity for more than half of his life without any negative consequences and that he clearly has a political motives for imposing such ban.
    I hope the Dalai Lama is compassionate enough to see the goodness in Dorje Shugden and lift the ban.

    May the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners be lifted and all can be benefited from this precious authentic buddha dharma.

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.
