སོ་ལ་རི་ཀུ་སི་ཀོ་ནས།

ཕྱི་ལོ་ ༢༠༡༧ ཕྱི་ཟླ་ ༡༡ ཚེས་ ༢༣ ཉིན། ཨེ་ཀོ་ནོ་མིག ཊེམ་ (Economic Times) ཞེས་པའི་གསར་ཤོག་ཏུ། རྒྱ་གར་ཚོང་ལས་ཚན་པ་ནས་གོ་སྒྲིག་བྱས་ཏེ་ཚོགས་འདུ་ཚོགས་པ་དེར་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་ཉེས་འཆར་གྱི་དཔྱད་གཏམ་སྤེལ་དོན་ལ། དོན་གནད་དེའི་ཐོག་ལ། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་ཐུགས་སྣང་དྲག་པོའི་ངང་ནས། ཁོང་རྒྱ་ནག་མཉམ་དུ་སྡོད་འདོད་ཡོད་ཅེས་དང་། དེའི་སྐོར་ཁོང་གིས་ཐུགས་ཐག་ཆོད་པོའི་ཐོག་ནས་གསལ་པོར་གསུངས་སོང་། དེ་ལ་དོན་འགྲེལ་ལོག་པ་བྱེད་ས་མི་འདུག

ཁོང་གི་དཔྱད་གཏམ་དེས། ཉེ་འཆར་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དབུ་མའི་ལམ་ཞེས་པའི་ཐོག་ནས་རྒྱ་ནག་གཞུང་གི་འོག་ལ་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་ཞེས་པའི་གནད་དོན་དེའི་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་མཁན་འཛམ་གླིང་གང་སར་ཡོད་པའི་བོད་མི་མང་གི་བློ་ལ་འཆར་སྣང་ལོག་པ་སྐྱེད་བཅུག་པ་རེད། བོད་མི་དེ་ཚོ་ལ། གྲོས་ཚོགས་སྣ་ཚོགས་ཀྱི་ཚོགས་མི་འཛོམ་ནས། ཉེ་འཆར་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དབུ་མའི་ལམ་གྱི་རྒྱབ་འགལ་རང་བཙན་གྱི་ལས་འགུལ་ལ་དམིགས་ནས་ཕ་རེན་སིར་བགྲོས་གླེང་ཚོགས་པར་བཅར་ཡོད་པ་དང་། ཕ་རེན་སིས་ལུང་པའི་མཛེས་སྡུག་ཅན་གྱི་མཐོང་རྒྱ་སྣ་ཚོགས་ལྟ་ནས་སྤྲོ་སྐྱིད་གཏོང་ནས་དུས་ཚོད་སྐྱེལ་ཡོད་འདུག བོད་མི་དེ་ཚོའི་གྲོས་ཚོགས་ལ་ཏན་ཏན་འགྲིམ་སྒྲུལ་བྱེད་པར་འགྲོ་སོང་མང་པོ་འདུག དངོས་ཡོད་གནས་ཚུལ་དེ་གང་ཡིན་ཞེས་ན།

༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་དེ་ཉིད་ལ་གང་འདོད་པ་གསལ་པོ་གནང་ཡོད་པ་དང་། ཁོང་གི་གང་དགོངས་པ་དེ་བོད་མི་ཚོའི་དོན་དུ་མཆོག་ཏུ་འགྱུར་པ་རེད། དེ་ཨིན་ཙང་།

  1. བོད་མི་ཚང་མས། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་སྐུ་མདུན་ལ་བཀའ་དྲིན་བསམ་ཤེས་དང་ཤ་ཞེན་ཡོད་ན། བསམ་ཕྱོགས་འདི་ལ་ངོས་ལེན་བྱེད་དགོས། སྣང་བ་འདིར། རྒྱ་གར་དང་བལ་ཡུལ་ནང་ཡོད་པའི་བོད་པའི་སྤྱི་ཚོགས་ནང་ཚང་མས་ལམ་སེང་རྒྱ་གཞུང་གི་དར་ལྕག་ཕྱར་དགོས། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་བོད་ཡུལ་དེ་རྒྱ་ནག་གཞུང་གི་ཁྲིམས་ཀྱི་འོག་ཏུ་དབུ་མའི་ལམ་དགོས་གསུངས་ཡོད་པ་དང་། དེའི་དོན་ནི་རྒྱ་ནག་གཞུང་གི་དར་ལྕག་འཆར་དགོས་པ་འདི་རེད།
  2. གལ་སྲིད་བོད་མི་ཚོས་བོད་ཀྱི་དར་ལྕོག་ཕྱར་ན། འདིས་དེ་ཚོ་ལ་བོད་རང་བཙན་དགོས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་མཚོན་ཞིང་། རྒྱ་ནག་གཞུང་གི་དར་ལྕག་ཁས་མི་ལེན་པ་ཡིན། བྱ་སྤྱོད་འདི་འདྲ་རང་སྟོན་ན། རྒྱ་གཞུང་གིས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་གང་གསུངས་པ་བཞིན་དྲང་བདེན་ཡིན་པ་དེ་ཇི་ལྟར་ཡིད་ཆེད་བྱེད་དམ། བོད་མི་ཚོ་ལ་བོད་དང་རྒྱ་ནག་ཆིག་སྒྲིལ་དགོས་པའི་བསམ་ཤེས་ཡོད་ན། དེ་ཚོས་དངོས་སུ་སྟོན་ཐུབ་པ་བྱེད་དགོས་པ་དང་། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེས་ལ་ལྷག་བསམ་རྣམ་དག་གི་སྒོ་ནས་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་བྱེད་དགོས་རེད། དེ་ཡིན་ཙང་རྒྱ་ནག་གི་དར་ལྕོག་ཉར་ན་འགའ་ཤས་ལ་ཡང་མི་མཐུན་པ་ལྟ་བུ་མཐོང་གི་ཡོད་རེད། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེས་ལ་བསམ་ཤེས་ཡོད་པའི་སྒོ་ནས་རྒྱག་གཞུང་ཕྱོགས་ལ་འགྲིགས་འཇགས་ཀྱི་རྣམ་འགྱུར་སྟོན་པ་ནི་སྤྱིར་སྟངས་འདི་ལས་ཀྱང་གལ་ཆེའོ། །རྒྱ་གཞུང་གི་དར་ལྕོག་ཕྱར་ན། བོད་ཡུལ་རྒྱ་གཞུང་གི་ཁྲིམ་འོག་འགྲོ་ཐུབ་པ་དེ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེས་ལ་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་བྱེད་པ་དང་མཚུངས་སོ།།
  3. ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་དགོངས་བཞེས་གསལ་པོར་གང་བཞག་པ་དེ་བོད་མི་མང་ཚོའི་དོན་དུ་ཡག་པོ་རེད། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེས་ཀྱི་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་མཁན་རང་བཙན་ཞེས་པ་དེ་ཚོ་ལ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་རྒྱབ་འགལ་གྱི་བསམ་འཆར་འདི་འདྲ་གང་ཡང་ཡོད་དམ། གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱོད་རང་གིས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེས་ལ་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་ན། ཁྱོད་ཀྱི་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་ལ་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་པ་རེད། ལས་སླ་པོ་རེད། ད་ནས་བཟུང་། བོད་མི་སུ་ཞིག་གིས་བོད་ཀྱི་དར་ལྕག་ཕྱར་ནས་བོད་རང་བཙན་ལ་སྐད་འབོད་རྒྱག་ན། དེ་ཚོ་སྤྱིར་སྟངས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དབུ་མའི་ལམ་གྱི་དགོངས་པ་དང་འགལ་ཚར་རེད། དེ་ཚོ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་རྒྱབ་འགལ་དམ་ཉམས་པ་དང་། བོད་པའི་སྤྱི་ཚོགས་ནང་དངུལ་འགྲོ་སོང་གཏོང་པའི་དབྱེ་འབྱེད་བྱེད་མཁན་རེད།

གལ་ཏེ་བོད་མིའི་སྒྲིག་འཛུགས་དང་བོད་མིའི་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་ལ་དངོས་ནས་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་གནང་གི་ཡོད་ན། ཁོང་གིས་བོད་མི་ཚོས་རྒྱ་ནག་ནས་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་གི་རྙེད་ཐབས་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད། རང་བཙན་རྩོད་ཀྱི་མིན་ཞེས་གསུངས་པ་ཡིན་པས། རྒྱ་གཞུང་ཁ་གཏད་དུ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་དུ་དབུས་བོད་མིའི་སྒྲིག་འཛུགས་ཀྱིས་བཤོལ་མ་འདེབས་དགོས། དེ་བཞིན་བོད་ཀྱི་དར་ཆ་ཕྱར་བར་བོད་མི་རྣམས་ནས་བཤོལ་ཐབས་བྱེད་དགོས་པ་དང་རང་ལུས་མེ་མཆོད་ཕུལ་ཡ་དེ་ཡང་མཚམས་འཇོག་བྱེད་དགོས་པའི་བསྐུལ་གནང་དགོས་རེད།

  1. བོད་མི་ཡོངས་ཀྱིས་རྒྱ་གཞུང་དང་གྲོགས་པོ་སྒྲིག་པར་ལག་པ་རྐྱང་སྟེ་གཞུང་གཉིས་བར་ལམ་ཁ་བཟོ་དགོས་འདུག དབུས་བོད་མིའི་སྒྲིག་འཛུགས་ཀྱིས་རྒྱ་ནག་ལ་ཁ་གཏད་གཅོག་ཡ་མཚམས་འཇོག་བྱེད་དགོས་པ་དང་གལ་ཏེ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དམིགས་ཡུལ་སྒྲུབ་དགོས་ན་རྒྱ་ནག་ཁ་གཏད་དུ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་ཆེད་དུ་བོད་མི་རྣམས་ལ་བསྐུལ་མ་བྱེད་རྒྱུ་དེ་མཚམས་འཇོག་དགོས། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་སྟོབས་ཤུགས་དང་ལྡན་པའི་གཞུང་ཞིག་གི་ཁ་གཏད་གཅོག་པ་ཡིན་ན། ཁོང་ཚོས་ཁྱེད་རང་ལ་གང་འདྲ་བྱེད་ནས་འབྲེལ་བ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་རེད་དམ། ཁྱེད་རང་གི་གཞན་ལ་ཚིག་རྩུབ་སྨྲ་བ་དང་དམའ་འབེབས་བྱེད་པ་ཡིན་ན་ཁོང་ཚོས་ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་འདོད་དོན་གང་འདྲ་སྒྲུབ་པ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་རེད་དམ།
  2. དེ་ཡིན་ཙང་། གལ་ཏེ་བོད་མིི་དང་བོད་མིའི་དབུ་ཁྲི་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་བོད་ལ་འགྲོ་བ་འདོད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་ན། ཁོང་ཚོས་རྒྱ་གཞུང་ཁ་གཏད་དུ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་ཡ་མཚམས་འཇོག་བྱེད་དགོས། རྒྱ་གཞུང་ལ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་ཏེ་མཐོང་ཆུང་བཏང་བ་ཡིན་ན་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་བོད་ལ་ཕེབས་ཐུབ་ཡའི་གོ་སྐབས་གཏོར་རྒོལ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད། བོད་རང་བཙན་དགོས་ཞེས་འབོད་པ་ནི་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་པ་དང་འགལ་གྱི་ཡོད་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། བོད་མིའི་རྣམས་ཀྱི་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་འདོད་དགོས་ཞེས་ཁོང་གིས་གསུངས་ཚར་བ་རེད།

འདི་ལས་གསལ་བ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་ག་རེད་གསུངས་དགོས་སམ། ཁོང་གིས་བོད་མིའི་ཆེད་དུ་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་དགོས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་དང་ཁོང་གི་བསམ་ཚུལ་ལ་འདི་ནི་ཐབས་ལམ་དྲག་ཤོས་ཡིན་ཞེས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་གསལ་པོའི་བྱེད་ནས་གསུངས། འདི་དང་ཁ་འགྱེ་བའི་བསམ་ཚུལ་གཞན་ནི་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེད་དང་གསལ་པོ་འགལ། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་ཚང་མ་མཁྱེན་ཞེས་བོད་མིའི་དབུ་ཁྲིད་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་ཡང་ནས་ཡང་དུ་བཤད། ཁོང་ཚོས་དམངས་གཙོ་དང་འགལ་བའི་སྲིད་ཇུས་བཟོ་ཏེ་རྒྱུ་མཚན་གང་ཡང་མེད་ནའང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་བསྟེན་གསོལ་དེ་བཀག་སྡོམ་བྱེད་ནས་འདི་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་བཀའ་ཡང་ན་དགོངས་བཞེས་རེད་ཞེས་བརྗོད།

ག་རེད་ཡིན་ཡང་། ད་ལྟ་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་འདོད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་དང་། བོད་རང་བཙན་མི་འདོད། བོད་མིའི་དབུ་ཁྲིད་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་རང་སྐྱོང་སྲིད་དབང་སྒྲུབ་པར་སོ་སོའི་མི་མང་ལ་བསྒྲགས་གཏམ་འགྲེམས་ཡ་འགོ་འཛུགས་ཀྱི་རེད་པས། ད་ལྟ་ནང་བཞིན་ཁ་ཁག་བཞུགས་ཏེ་བོད་རང་བཙན་གྱི་ཆེད་དུ་མི་མང་ལ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་དུ་འཇུག་གི་རེད་དམ། བོད་རང་བཙན་གྱི་ཆེད་དུ་ངོ་རྒོལ་བྱེད་དུ་འཇུག་པ་ཡིན་ན། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་དབུ་མའི་ལམ་དེ་ཉིད་དང་འགལ་གྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད། བོད་མི་རྣམས་ནི་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་དགོངས་བཞེད་ཀྱི་ཁ་གཏད་དུ་འགྲོ་རྒྱུ་རེད་པས། ཡང་ན་ཁོང་གི་ཡིད་སྨོན་དེ་སྒྲུབ་པར་ཁོང་གི་བཀའ་ལ་བརྩི་གི་རེད་དམ།

ད་བོད་པའི་དབུ་ཁྲིད་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་སོ་སོའི་ཁ་ནས་གང་བརྗོད་པ་དེ་བྱེད་ནས་སྟོན་དགོས་པའི་དུས་ཚོད་སླེབ་ཡོད། ད་ཁོང་ཚོས་གང་བྱེད་ཀྱི་རེད་ཞེས་མི་ཚང་མའི་བལྟ་བཞིན་ཡོད་རེད། གལ་ཏེ་ཁྱེད་རང་ཚོས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་དགོངས་བཞེད་བོད་རྒྱ་ནག་དང་འབྲེལ་བ་བྱེད་འདོད་པའི་བཀལ་ལ་བརྩི་གི་ཡོད་ན། ཁྱེད་རང་དངོས་གནས་རྒྱལ་ཞེན་གྱི་གང་ཟག་ཆགས་ཡོད། དེར་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་རྒྱ་ནག་དར་ཆ་ཕྱར་བར་འགོ་འཛུགས་དགོས། གལ་ཏེ་ཁྱེད་རང་བོད་རང་བཙན་དགོས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་ན། ཁྱོད་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་ཡིད་སྨོན་གྱི་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད། ཁྱེད་རང་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་ཡིད་སྨོན་གྱི་ཁ་གཏད་བྱེད་འདོད་ཡོད་དམ། ཁྱེད་རང་རྒྱལ་ཞེན་གྱི་གང་ཟག་མ་ཡིན་ནམ། ཁྱེད་རང་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་ཁ་གཏད་པ་ཡིན་ནམ། བོད་རང་བཙན་གྱི་ཆེད་དུ་འཁྲུག་རྩོད་བྱེད་མཁན་དེ་དག་ནི་བོད་པའི་སྤྱི་ཚོགས་ནང་གི་ཚོགས་པ་ཉེན་ཚབས་ཆེ་ཤོས་ཞིག་ཡིན་ཞེས་ཟམ་གདོང་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་གསུངས། ཁྱེད་རང་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་ཕྱོགས་སུ་ཡོད་དམ་མེད།

  1. SUMAA has been consistent in their efforts to evict Tibetans from Arunachal Pradesh as the Tibetans are known to exploit benefits given to locals. The Central Tibetan Administration, especially their so-called ‘president’ Lobsang Sangay, made the situation worse by rubbing salt in the wound, making a statement that Chief Minister Pema Khandu is an ardent follower of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a lifelong friend of the Tibetan people. This was right after Khandu announced the adoption of the Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy in Arunachal Pradesh.

    Tibetan refugees create a lot of problems for the locals no matter where they are, especially in Arunachal Pradesh. They take the locals’ land and resources without giving anything in return, making the locals furious to the extent that they are now demanding a written undertaking from the Tibetan refugees not to claim Indian citizenship and STC/PRC in Arunachal Pradesh. It is time to impeach Sangay for a better leader to guide and take care of the Tibetans in India before the wrath of locals evict Tibetans from the state or even the country for good.

    Self-styled student group in Indian border state calls for Tibetan refugees to be moved to ‘demarcated camps’
    [Wednesday, July 11, 2018 18:45]
    By Tenzin Dharpo
    DHARAMSHALA, July 11: Self-styled group “The Students’ United Movement of All Arunachal” (SUMAA) has reportedly submitted a memorandum to the West Kameng deputy commissioner on Monday, demanding an immediate rollback of the Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy, 2014 within three days against threat of retaliatory action. 
    The students group has also called for Tibetan refugees to be moved to demarcated camps and revoke trading licences obtained by Tibetan refugees. A written undertaking from the Central Tibetan Administration not to claim Indian citizenship and STC/PRC in Arunachal Pradesh for Tibetans, has also been demanded.
    Last year, the same group initiated the “Anti Tibetan Refugee Movement” calling for ousting of Tibetan refugees from the state. Spokesperson of the group has alleged that with the implementation of the TRP 2014, benefits such as MGNREGA, PDS, Indira Awas Yojana, and National Rural Health Mission provided by the Centre for “our people will be snatched away” by the Tibetan refugees.
    The group in October 2017 also released a list of all the shops owned by Tibetans with their names in the Capital Complex area threatening that the Tibetans will be targeted individually and “forcefully evicted”.
    The Tibetan Rehabilitation Policy assures welfare to Tibetan refugees in India on matters concerning land lease, extending central and state government benefits, relevant papers/trade license/permit for economic activity and legal permit to pursue any professional career such as nursing, teaching, Chartered Accountancy, medicine, engineering etc, depending upon the qualification.
    Till date, Karnataka government has been the only state to begin implementation of the policy. In Dec 2016, the Tibetan refugee settlement of Mundgod became the first settlement to be handed over the land lease agreement by Karnataka State. 
    Arunachal Pradesh has the fourth largest number of Tibetans in India, with four settlements in Tezu, Miao, Tuting, and Tenzingang. However, the number of Tibetan refugees has dwindled to just 7500 with Canada accepting 1000 Tibetan refugees in 2016 and many youths venturing to bigger Indian cities for livelihood. In India, the total number of Tibetan refugees is close to 90,000, according to a 2009 CTA census.

  2. Hollywood is one of the most influential groups of people who have promoted the mysticism of Buddhist Tantra to the world. Together with the media, they have packaged Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan lamas into a fantasy Utopia, filled with God-like beings who are able to lead people along the quick path to enlightenment.

    This propaganda has been widely exploited by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) to garner support, especially financial aid, for the so-called Tibetan Cause and the Tibetan struggle against Chinese rule. Little does the West, including Richard Gere and the so-called Buddhist Professor Robert Thurman, know that efforts from China to improve the infrastructure and standard of living for the Tibetans in China have created opportunities for Tibetans to grow and be successful. This is something that is rarely seen in exile under the governance of the CTA.

    This false image that has been promoted for the past 60 years or so is now slowly fading away as more and more victims come forward, exposing the sexual abuse they have suffered under the hands of Tibetan lamas like Sogyal Rinpoche. The root of the problem is clear, people are greedy and lazy while wanting quick success and attention. Since they get these from the Tibetan lamas like Sogyal, they are willing to accept the exploitation. This is further driven by fear that they would no longer be seen as the privileged ones in the inner circle if they do not clutch at their lamas and be seen showing tremendous devotion to their gurus. With only a superficial knowledge of Buddhism, this cult-like group of Hollywood stars and American politicians like Richard Gere continue to generate respect and love for their skewed version of the “Dharma”, while real Buddhist masters are relegated to the side lines.

    This Sexual Abuser Hollywood Doesn’t Want You To See
    Feb 28, 2018 | Posted by Christine A. Chandler
    Why is the mainstream media ignoring this Elephant in the Room?
    Is it because, once they peel the curtain back on this little sexually abusive, predator Lama,  Lama Sogyal Rinpoche, best friend of the Dalai Lama and his major benefactor, helping to spread Mindfulness throughout the West, the whole edifice of deception, corruption, cover-ups of  institutional sexual abuse, and Shangri-la pretenses will be exposed?
    Never mind that these Tibetan lamas have fooled a large part of the Western psychology profession, most  all of journalism, and certain parts of academia as well as CEO’s of major corporations.  Those who also want to jump on the billion-dollar Mindfulness bandwagon; the first cult technique these Tibetan lamas used to get us to think as a herd.
    Perhaps it is also because the  news media coverage, for the last twenty-five years, of  Saint Dalai Lama, keeper of slaves and life-time serfs less than sixty years ago, is one of the icons of the Hollywood jet-set, certain politicians like Nancy Pelosi,  Congressman Tim Ryan,  academics, like Uma’s dad- Robert Thurman,  and such Hollywood stars, as Richard Gere, Harrison Ford, Scarlett Johansson, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Sharon Stone, the list goes on and on,  who will now be seen, not just as  enablers of Weinstein, but also of the Tantric cult of Tibetan Lamaism and its Tantra that has infused Hollywood with its amorality and  sexual abuse for the last four decades, given it permission for their long history of accepting this behavior as ‘normal.’
    It was not so long ago, that Trungpa fooled our sixties generation, with the help of rock and roll stars, and Allen Ginsberg, modern poet extraordinaire of the Howl, and member of NAMBLA. Ginsberg also controlled the narrative of how these Tibetan Lamas were to be seen by the public, for the next forty-plus years.
    Marxists have been in collusion with the lamas, as well,  for a very long time.  As have certain institutions on the right, of the C-Street variety. The Dalai Lama boldly sends messages of being a friend to democracy to every President since his “escape” from China. But declares himself a Marxist in India.
    Australian CEOs in the article link above are now questioning the wisdom of having Lama  Sogyal of Rigpa, the Dalai Lama’s best friend all these years, who has been their icon for mindfulness meditation  at the workplace. They are not willing to cover-up for his sexual abuse and demeaning and degrading of women, his keeping a harem, just as Chogyam Trungpa did but it was ignored, and his Tantra was allowed to spread. Thanks to Hollywood giving him a featured role in Little Buddha with Keanu Reeves.
    Isn’t it time we peeled the whole onion back to see part of what’s at the core of this sexual abuse and confusion about right and wrong?
    Nancy Pelosi goes to the Dalai Lama for advice, and gets crazier every year; Tim Ryan, groomed to take her place, writes a book about Tantric Mindfulness for a Mindless nation  and called: Mindfulness Nation .
    Ryan hangs out with Lama Sogyal’s friend, Lama Tsoknyi who is Sogyal’s strongest supporter and pal.
    Tim Ryan and Lama Tsoknyi, speak together about Global Warming. Tsoknyi surely helped Ryan write his book and Tim Ryan helps Lama Tsoknyi pretend he is a ‘scientific lama’ who also can bless books to make them understandable and can infuse statues with living mojo inside his cult groups of western followers around the world, and now in Asia, fooling the Han and Chan Buddhists that he is teaching what the Buddha taught when it is Tantra and its institutionalized sexual abuse and Lamaist corruptions.
    The occult, crazy-making Tantra of Tibetan Lamas  has been infusing Hollywood, Journalism, Academia, Psychology, Third-wave Feminism, and the Entertainment Industry and Left-Wing Politics, for the last forty years.  Recently, we have been seeing its results implode as the sexual abuses of celebrities and journalists, politicians makes explosive media news.
    Chogyam Trungpa, the Tantric Lama darling of the sixties Drugs, Rock and Roll crowd was the first Tibetan Lama to illegally keep a harem of sexual consorts on American soil. His Regent gave his students AIDS, with unprotected sex, but was never criminally charged. Instead he was allowed to brainwash his students into believing this was ‘openness’ and freedom, on the way to the realization of a non-duality mind.  They  have reinvented his ‘lineage’ along the coast of Maine, to turn that State back into Massachusetts.
     “Democracy was a failed experiment” said Trungpa’s mouthpiece, Ginsberg, who believed a totalitarian dictatorship of Tribal warlords would be so much better.  
    Time to unpeel the whole onion and get to the core of what has been making the West crazy, immoral and stupid: the civilization jihad that comes with a smiling face and a Lamaist peaceful facade.

  3. The letter:

    It is about the incident that happened at His Holiness’s birthday celebration in NYC recently July 6, 2018. Some members of Tibetan woman association approached to Parliamentarian Tenpa Yarphel during the ceremony and complained that his comments regarding Nechung was disrespect to the protector and His Holiness. They also said him that he made many Tibetan people sad with his comments. And told him not to do that again in the future. Then Dhondup Tseten stood up and shamelessly touched those women. That incident almost made the ceremony stopped. To keep maintaining the relationship between Tibetan Woman Association and Tibetan Parliament Representative, TWA are asking for an apology letter from Dhondup Tseten for touching their members.

    (It is so sad that in the fake democracy of the Tibetan leadership in Dharamsala you cannot say anything against a leader or criticize. Too bad)

  4. While the government of Nepal has framed a policy to tighten the noose around non-governmental organisations, they have welcomed 30 Chinese NGOs to enter the country. These NGOs will penetrate the country’s social sector at the grassroots level. This is the first time such a large number of Chinese NGOs have entered Nepal at one time. Nepal is increasingly open to Chinese influence, a sign that ties between both countries are strengthening, while India’s influence is being reduced. The time has passed for India’s monopoly to remain uninterrupted in Nepal as opportunities to engage with China are being welcomed.

    30 Chinese NGOs all set to work in Nepal
    REWATI SAPKOTA
    Kathmandu, July 30
    At a time when the government has framed a policy to tighten the noose around non-governmental organisations, 30 Chinese NGOs have entered Nepal to penetrate the country’s social sector and the grassroots.
    The Social Welfare Council Nepal and China NGO Network for International Exchanges, an umbrella body of Chinese NGOs, have signed a memorandum of understanding to enable Chinese NGOs to work in Nepal. The agreement was signed yesterday between SWCN Member Secretary Dilli Prasad Bhatt and CNIE General Secretary Zhu Rui in the presence of Minister of Women, Children and Senior Citizen Tham Maya Thapa and Chinese Deputy Minister of External Affairs Wang Yajun.
    The agreement has paved the way for the first batch of 30 Chinese NGOs to work in Nepal for a period of three years. Their contract will be extended based on the consent of SWCN and CNIE. Representatives of these 30 Chinese NGOs were also present during yesterday’s signing ceremony. They have agreed to work in partnership with local NGOs to implement their programmes and projects.
    The Chinese NGOs are eyeing areas such as livelihood, healthcare, education, skill-based training, community development and disaster management. This is the first time such a large number of Chinese NGOs has entered Nepal at one time. The Chinese assistance so far in Nepal has largely been limited to development of infrastructure projects. But the entry of these NGOs indicates China is keen on making its presence felt in Nepal’s social sector and the grassroots, which, till date, have remained domains of the West and countries such as Japan and India.
    The MoU signed between SWCN and CNIE states that Chinese NGOs will be mobilised for ‘the benefit of needy Nepalis and to enhance ties between China and Nepal through people-to-people support programmes’.
    “The Chinese NGOs will abide by the law of Nepal in its entirety while carrying out development cooperation in Nepal,” says the MoU, adding, “Chinese NGOs will submit programmes to the SWCN to carry out development activities in partnership with Nepali NGOs and SWCN in line with plans and policies of the government of Nepal.”
    The MoU was signed at a time when the government has drafted the National Integrity Policy to limit activities of NGOs and INGOs, as some of them were found ‘trying to break communal harmony and proselytising Nepalis’. There were also concerns that high administrative cost of many NGOs and INGOs was preventing money from reaching the real beneficiaries. The policy clearly states that NGOs and INGOs cannot spend more than specified amount under administrative and consultant headings. They will also be barred from working against Nepal’s interests, culture and communal harmony and conducting activities to promote their religious, social or other agenda, adds the policy.
    Around 48,000 NGOs are currently registered in Nepal, of which only 1,600 have been receiving funds from INGOs, as per SWCN. The SWCN has directed INGOs and NGOs to spend 60 per cent of the budget to generate tangible results, while the remaining can be used to cover administrative costs and organise training, meetings and seminars.

  5. The Nikkei Asian Review is a highly reputable news platform. They are not tabloid in any sense of the word. What they publish is reputable and thoroughly reliable. They mention clearly in an article published August 7, 2018 that the Dalai Lama has a terminal illness. The Prime Minister of India knowing this is now conciliatory towards China. He understands that the Dalai Lama cannot be used as a pawn in irritating China any further. Negotiations are progressing that after the passing of Dalai Lama, his government in-exile will close. The end.

    India uses rumor of Dalai Lama’s ill health to mend China ties
    If Tibetan exile flow is stemmed, Beijing might compromise on territorial claim

    DHARAMSALA — Rumors are flying around in this northern Indian city, home to the Tibetan government-in-exile, that the 14th Dalai Lama is suffering from terminal cancer.
    With Tibetan exiles deeply worried about the 83-year-old religious leader, the Indian government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been using the situation to take a more conciliatory approach to China. Modi also seems to be lowering the standing of the Tibetan government-in-exile.
    Word that the Dalai Lama may be in serious condition has quietly spread. “I have heard that His Holiness is not well,” said Migmar Chodon, a 49-year-old housewife in Dharamsala. “Though I don’t know well about it, I am worried.”
    A 27-year-old restaurant employee in the city said, “I have read somewhere that His Holiness is unwell.”
    In 1959, Tibetan people rose in revolt in Lhasa, Tibet, which had been occupied by China’s military, the People’s Liberation Army, and the 14th Dalai Lama fled to India. At least 130,000 Tibetans later left their homeland. At present, 85,000 Tibetans live in India, about 8,000 of them in Dharamsala, which hosts the Tibetan government-in-exile and a temple where the 14th Dalai Lama lives.
    Rumors about the Dalai Lama suffering from poor health come frequently. The latest one arose in June, when an Indian media company reported that the Dalai Lama was in the “last stage of prostate cancer.” The Dalai Lama’s doctor and the government-in-exile immediately denied the news, and people have tried to remain calm. “I want to believe the words of the doctor,” the restaurant worker said.
    The Indian government thinks the terminal cancer report is credible. A government source said “the prostate cancer has spread to his lymph nodes” and that “his life would not be so long” now.
    In the past two years, the Dalai Lama has received treatment at a hospital in the U.S. People close to the Dalai Lama worry that word of this was leaked by U.S. authorities. Now the Dalai Lama “will be going to Switzerland for radiotherapy in the month of August,” the source said.
    India is using rumors that the Dalai Lama is in poor health to build a more conciliatory relationship with China. In April, during an informal summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Wuhan, China, Modi tried to portray the India-China relationship as improved.
    During the meeting, “Modi apprised President Xi of the Dalai Lama’s health and the Indian position on Tibet after his death,” a government source said. “This information from Modi took Xi by surprise, and the two discussed the issue for a long time at the Wuhan summit.”
    When the leaders met in 2015 and 2016, they informally discussed a proposal for India to stop accepting new Tibetan exiles after the death of the Dalai Lama in return for China withdrawing its territorial claim on some parts of northern India.
    For humanitarian, strategic and other reasons, India has been accepting Tibetan exiles for nearly 60 years. Tibet has been something of a buffer zone between the world’s two most populous countries since shortly after India’s independence in 1947. However, China has strengthened its grip on the Tibet Autonomous Region, and in 2017 new exiles numbered 57, a sharp drop from over 2,000 a decade earlier.
    With Tibet’s strategic value waning, India has moderated its stance.
    At the behest of the Indian government, the Tibetan government-in-exile last year changed the English name for its sikyong from “prime minister” to “president.” Geshe Lhakdor, director of the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives and for years an interpreter for the 14th Dalai Lama, said the new term denotes the leader of an organization, rather than the leader of a country.
    The Indian government is also encouraging Tibetan exiles to acquire Indian citizenship.
    A successor to the 14th Dalai Lama will be installed when a person believed to be his reincarnation is found, or will be appointed under a new system, like nomination.
    The 15th Dalai Lama will then lead the Tibetan Buddhist world. However, it will be difficult for the successor to take the place of the 14th Dalai Lama, who has international influence as a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and is the protector of Tibetan exiles.
    The buildings that house the government-in-exile and the temple which is home to the 14th Dalai Lama sit atop a mountain. At the foot of this mountain is the Tibetan Reception Center that Tibetan exiles first visit for registration. It is quiet these days, and very much unoccupied.

  6. What will the all the people around the world and in Tibet do now? Dalai Lama says he is happy that Tibet is a part of China and should remain a part of China. So many Tibetans self-immolated for Tibet to be independent and now Dalai Lama did a 360 degree turn and says he wants to go back to Tibet and China and Tibet should be a part of China. So unbelievable. So many are angry and disappointed.

    Tibetans ready to be part of China: Dalai Lama

    Tibetans are ready to be a part of China if guaranteed full rights to preserve their culture, the Dalai Lama said on Friday.
    “Tibetans are not asking for independence. We are okay with remaining with the People’s Republic of China, provided we have full rights to preserve our culture,” the 83-year-old spiritual leader said at “Thank You Karnataka” event here in the city.
    Organised by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the event was a part of “Thank You India – 2018″ held by the Tibetan community across India to mark 60 years of its exile in the country.
    “Several of Chinese citizens practicing Buddhism are keen on Tibetan Buddhism as it is considered scientific,” the Nobel laureate said.
    Born in Taktser hamlet in northeastern Tibet, the Dalai Lama was recognized at the age of two as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso. He fled to India from Tibet after a failed uprising against the Chinese rule in 1959.
    China annexed Tibet in 1950, forcing thousands of Tibetans, including monks, to flee the mountain country and settle in India as refugees.
    Since then, India has

  7. Dear Dalai Lama,

    Since you started the cruel ban against the 350 year Dorje Shugden practice, how has it benefit your Tibetan society and Buddhism in the world? Things have become worse and most educated Tibetans can see this. They don’t speak out not because they don’t see your ban as wrong, but you instill fear in them and not respect. It is like fear of a dictator. I am sorry to say so. Everyone is divided. There is no harmony. Before your ban there was more harmony and unity.

    By enacting the ban, you split the monasteries, split so many families, split regions in Tibet apart, split your disciples from you, split your own gurus from you, split Tibetan Buddhism apart. You have created so much disharmony.

    It is not democratic what you have done to ban a religion within your community. You always talk of tolerance and acceptance and democracy and yet you do not accept and tolerate something different from your beliefs. When people practice Dorje Shugden you ostracize them, ban them from seeing you, ban them from using Tibetan facilities. You know you have done that. There are videos that capture your speech and prove this point. You even had people expelled from monasteries just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Some of the monks you expelled have been in the monastery for over 40 years. Many older monks shed tears because of this.

    Many young educated Tibetans lost confidence in you as they saw the damage the Dorje Shugden ban created and they lose hope. Many have become free thinkers. They reject what you have done. So many people in the west left Buddhism because of the confusion you created with this ban against Dorje Shugden which is immoral.

    You could of had millions of people who practice Dorje Shugden to support, love and follow you, but you scared them away. They are hurt and very disappointed. They loved you and respected you deeply before the ban. It has been 60 years and you have failed to get Tibet back. Your biggest failure is not getting Tibet back after 57 years in exile. Now you are begging China to allow you to return to Tibet to the disappointment of thousands of people who fought for a free Tibet believing in you. So many self-immolated for a free Tibet and now you want Tibet to be a part of China with no referendum from Tibetans. Just like a dictator, you decide on your own. It was your government and you that lost Tibet in the first place. Your policies and style of doing things do not benefit Tibet and Buddhism. You have been the sole ruler of Tibet your whole life and you still have not gotten our country of Tibet back for us. Our families and us are separated. Yet you create more pain by creating a ban to further divide people. Please have compassion.

    No other Buddhist leader has banned or condemned any religion except for you. It looks very bad. You are a Nobel laureate and this is not fitting of a laureate. You should unite people and not separate them by religious differences.

    You said Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi did not do right to the Rohingya people in Myanmar due to religious differences, but you are doing the same thing to the Shugden Buddhists within your own society. There is a parallel in this. You separate the Shugden Buddhists from the others in Tibetan society.

    You have lost so many people who would have loved and supported you. You have lost so much support around the world. The Shugden Buddhists who love you number in the millions. When you are fast losing support from governments and private people, it will not do you well to lose more.

    After you are passed away in the future, the rift you created between the Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people will remain for a while and that will be your legacy. Disharmony. You will be remembered for this. Not as a hero but a disharmony creator.

    Dorje Shugden will spread and further grow, but you will be no more as you are a human. No one wishes you bad and in fact we hope you have a long and healthy life, but we have lost so much hope and have so much despair because of you. All the hundreds of Dorje Shugden lamas, tulkus and geshes are maturing and there are hundreds of Dorje Shugden monasteries in Tibet who will not give up Dorje Shugden. You have made a mistake. These hundreds of teachers and teachers to be will spread Dorje Shugden further in the future.

    The gurus that gave us Dorje Shugden as a spiritual practice and you have called these holy gurus wrong and they are mistaken in giving us Dorje Shugden. How can you insult our gurus whom we respect so much? If they can be wrong, then you can be wrong. Then all gurus can be wrong. So no one needs to listen to any guru? You have created this trend. It is not healthy. Your own gurus practiced Dorje Shugden their whole lives. Your own gurus were exemplary and highly learned.

    Dalai Lama you have created so much pain with this ban against so many people due to religion. You are ageing fast. Are you going to do anything about it or stay stubborn, hard and un-moving. You show a smile and preach peace and harmony wherever you go. But will you do the same to your own people? Please rectify the wrong you have done. Please before it is too late. You can create harmony again or you can pass away in the future with this legacy of peace. May you live long and think carefully and admit what was a mistake in having this unethical ban against Dorje Shugden religion.

  8. Why doesn’t the United States and its allies end Refugee Status for the useless Tibetans? They have been refugees for 60 years now and don’t tell me they still cannot get their lives back in order?

    Tibetans really know how to put on a good show and use people, take their money and do nothing in return.

    Trump and Allies Seek End to Refugee Status for Millions of Palestinians
    In internal emails, Jared Kushner advocated a “sincere effort to disrupt” the U.N.’s relief agency for Palestinians.
    BY COLUM LYNCH, ROBBIE GRAMER | AUGUST 3, 2018, 2:12 PM
    Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, has quietly been trying to do away with the U.N. relief agency that has provided food and essential services to millions of Palestinian refugees for decades, according to internal emails obtained by Foreign Policy.
    His initiative is part of a broader push by the Trump administration and its allies in Congress to strip these Palestinians of their refugee status in the region and take their issue off the table in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, according to both American and Palestinian officials. At least two bills now making their way through Congress address the issue.
    Kushner, whom Trump has charged with solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, has been reluctant to speak publicly about any aspect of his Middle East diplomacy. A peace plan he’s been working on with other U.S. officials for some 18 months has been one of Washington’s most closely held documents.
    But his position on the refugee issue and his animus toward the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is evident in internal emails written by Kushner and others earlier this year.
    “It is important to have an honest and sincere effort to disrupt UNRWA,” Kushner wrote about the agency in one of those emails, dated Jan. 11 and addressed to several other senior officials, including Trump’s Middle East peace envoy, Jason Greenblatt.
    “This [agency] perpetuates a status quo, is corrupt, inefficient and doesn’t help peace,” he wrote.
    The United States has helped fund UNRWA since it was formed in 1949 to provide relief for Palestinians displaced from their homes following the establishment of the State of Israel and ensuing international war. Previous administrations have viewed the agency as a critical contributor to stability in the region.
    But many Israel supporters in the United States today see UNRWA as part of an international infrastructure that has artificially kept the refugee issue alive and kindled hopes among the exiled Palestinians that they might someday return home—a possibility Israel flatly rules out.
    Critics of the agency point in particular to its policy of granting refugee status not just to those who fled Mandatory Palestine 70 years ago but to their descendants as well—accounting that puts the refugee population at around 5 million, nearly one-third of whom live in camps across Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank, and Gaza.
    By trying to unwind UNRWA, the Trump administration appears ready to reset the terms of the Palestinian refugee issue in Israel’s favor—as it did on another key issue in December, when Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
    In the same January email, Kushner wrote: “Our goal can’t be to keep things stable and as they are. … Sometimes you have to strategically risk breaking things in order to get there.”
    Kushner raised the refugee issue with officials in Jordan during a visit to the region in June, along with Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt. According to Palestinian officials, he pressed the Jordan to strip its more than 2 million registered Palestinians of their refugee status so that UNRWA would no longer need to operate there.
    “[Kushner said] the resettlement has to take place in the host countries and these governments can do the job that UNRWA was doing,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a member of Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
    She said the Trump administration wanted rich Arab Gulf states to cover the costs Jordan might incur in the process.
    “They want to take a really irresponsible, dangerous decision and the whole region will suffer,” Ashrawi said.
    Saeb Erekat, the Palestinians’ chief negotiator, told reporters in June that Kushner’s delegation had said it was ready to stop funding UNRWA altogether and instead direct the money—$300 million annually—to Jordan and other countries that host Palestinian refugees.
    “All this is actually aimed at liquidating the issue of the Palestinian refugees,” hesaid.
    The White House declined to comment on the record for this story. A senior executive branch official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said U.S. policy regarding the U.N.’s Palestinian refugee program “has been under frequent evaluation and internal discussion. The administration will announce its policy in due course.”
    Jordanian officials in New York and Washington did not respond to queries about the initiative.
    Kushner and Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, both proposed ending funding for UNRWA back in January. But the State Department, the Pentagon, and the U.S. intelligence community all opposed the idea, fearing in part that it could fuel violence in the region.
    The following week, the State Department announced that that United States would cut the first $125 million installment of its annual payment to UNRWA by more than half, to $60 million.
    “UNRWA has been threatening us for six months that if they don’t get a check they will close schools. Nothing has happened,” Kushner wrote in the same email.
    State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said at the time that the U.S. had no intention of eliminating funding for Palestinian refugees, and that it was taking time to explore ways to reform UNRWA and to convince other countries to help Washington shoulder the financial burden of aiding the Palestinians.
    But the following day, Victoria Coates, a senior advisor to Greenblatt, sent an email to the White House’s national security staff indicating that the White House was mulling a way to eliminate the U.N.’s agency for Palestinian refugees.
    “UNRWA should come up with a plan to unwind itself and become part of the UNHCR by the time its charter comes up again in 2019,” Coates wrote.
    She noted that the proposal was one of a number of “spitball ideas that I’ve had that are also informed by some thoughts I’ve picked up from Jared, Jason and Nikki.”
    Other ideas included a suggestion that the U.N. relief agency be asked to operate on a month-to-month budget and devise “a plan to remove all anti-Semitism from educational materials.”
    The ideas seemed to track closely with proposals Israel has been making for some time.
    “We believe that UNRWA needs to pass from the world as it is an organization that advocates politically against Israel and perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem,” said Elad Strohmayer, a spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in Washington.
    Strohmayer said that Palestinians are the only population that is able to transfer its refugee status down through generations.
    The claim, though long advanced by Israel, is not entirely true.
    In an internal report from 2015, the State Department noted that the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees “recognizes descendants of refugees as refugees for purposes of their operations.” The report, which was recently declassified, said the descendants of Afghan, Bhutanese, Burmese, Somali, and Tibetan refugees are all recognized by the U.N. as refugees themselves.
    Of the roughly 700,000 original Palestinian refugees, only a few tens of thousands are still alive, according to estimates.
    The push to deny the status to most Palestinians refugees is also gaining traction in Congress.
    Last week, Rep. Doug Lamborn, a Republican from Colorado, introduced a bill that would limit the United States to assisting only the original refugees. Most savings in U.N. contributions would be directed to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the United States’ principal international development agency. But USAID is currently constrained by the Taylor Force Act, which restricts the provision of humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian Authority until it ends a policy of providing aid to families of fallen terrorists.
    “Instead of resettling Palestinian refugees displaced as a result of the Arab-Israeli Conflict of 1948, UNRWA provides aid to those they define as Palestinian refugees until there is a solution they deem acceptable to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” Lamborn’s bill states.
    “This policy does not help resettle the refugees from 1948 but instead maintains a refugee population in perpetuity.”
    A congressional aide familiar with the legislation said its intent isn’t to gut UNRWA funding, but redirect assistance to descendants through USAID.
    “The people that are suffering should still get assistance, but through appropriately defined humanitarian channels and aid programs,” the aide said.
    Similarly, Sen. James Lankford, (R-Okla.), has drafted legislation that would redirect U.S. funding away from UNRWA and to other local and international agencies.
    The bill, which has not yet officially been introduced, would require the U.S. secretary of state certify by 2020 that the United Nations has ended its recognition of Palestinian descendants as refugees.
    “The United Nations should provide assistance to the Palestinians in a way that makes clear that the United Nations does not recognize the vast majority of Palestinians currently registered by UNRWA as refugees deserving refugee status,” reads a draft obtained by Foreign Policy.
    Previous U.S. administrations have maintained that the vast majority of Palestinian refugees will ultimately have to be absorbed in a new Palestinian state or naturalized in the countries that have hosted them for generations.
    But the fate of the refugee issue was expected to be agreed to as part of a comprehensive peace pact that resulted in the establishment of a Palestinian state.
    “It’s very clear that the overarching goal here is to eliminate the Palestinian refugees as an issue by defining them out of existence,” said Lara Friedman, the president of the Foundation for Middle East Peace.
    “This isn’t going to make peace any easier. It’s going to make it harder.”

  9. Supreme Court of India JUSTICE Mr. MARKANDEY KATJU (RETD) writes that Tibet is much better under the Chinese than it was under the lamas who only wanted to make the populace slaves. It was feudal and it will never return to the backwardness again.

    Time has come to acknowledge that Tibet has vastly improved under Chinese rule
    JUSTICE MARKANDEY KATJU (RETD) | 12 August, 2018
    From a terribly poor state hinged on a feudal system, Tibet has modernised and grows faster than the rest of China
    This article has been prompted by Jyoti Malhotra’s article in ThePrint ‘Tibetan government quietly changed its PM’s designation. India won’t be unhappy about it‘.
    China’s annexation of Tibet in 1959, ousting the Dalai Lama, had attracted it worldwide criticism. The Dalai Lama fled and was granted asylum in India, where he set up a government-in-exile with its headquarters in Dharamshala.
    The Chinese claim Tibet on the grounds that it has been part of the country since the Yuan dynasty of the 13th century, which is disputed by the government-in-exile. But let us leave this that matter aside.
    The more important question is whether Chinese rule has benefited Tibet.
    The answer is that it undoubtedly has. As the Reuters’ Ben Blanchard writes: “Today Tibet is richer and more developed than it has ever been, its people healthier, more literate, better dressed and fed”.
    Although Ben goes on to argue that this development masks “a deep sense of unhappiness among many Tibetans”, I will disagree. How can anyone be unhappy if s/he is healthier, better fed and better clothed?
    Under the rule of the Dalai Lamas (Buddhist priests), the people of Tibet were terribly poor, almost entirely illiterate, and lived like feudal serfs.
    Today, Tibet presents a totally different picture. The illiteracy rate in Tibet has gone down from 95 per cent in the 1950s to 42 per cent in 2000. It has modern schools, universities, engineering and medical colleges, modern hospitals, freeways, supermarkets, fast food restaurants, mobile stores and apartment buildings. The capital Lhasa is like any other modern city.
    While the economic growth in the rest of China has slowed down to about 7 per cent, Tibet has had a 10 per cent growth rate in the last two decades.
    Tibet has huge mineral wealth, which was only awaiting Chinese technology to be tapped. Nowadays, it has numerous hydro and solar power plants and industries running with Chinese help.
    Tibetan literature is flourishing, contrary to claims that the Chinese want to crush Tibetan culture.
    Of course, now the lamas cannot treat their people as slaves.
    The so-called ‘government-in-exile’, of which Lobsang Sangay claims to be the President, is a fake organisation, funded by foreign countries. They only want to restore the feudal Tibet, ruled by the reactionary lamas, something which will never happen.
    The writer is a former judge of the Supreme Court of India

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.
