  1. It was mentioned that about 30 media members attended the Dalai Lama’s talk at Princeton. Out of these 30 or so medias, 12 clearly mentioned the protests. Upon reading each article, which was factually and professionally reported, I dare to say that generous attention and focus in most of the articles were given to the protestors message: Dalai Lama, Stop Lying.

    I also believe that, although the journalists made effort to report as neutrally as possible, readers would be more impacted by the glaring news about the protests. Why? People expect His Holiness to teach about compassion and unity but they would be surprised by the Dalai Lama’s breach of basic human rights to freedom of religion, which is the cause of the protests.

    Thank you to the ISC for creating strong awareness of this ban from Europe to America. Knowledge will be what empowers wisdom as I understand of the Dharma.

    The harmony and impact of joint efforts between all Dorje Shugden communities worldwide will cause the lifting of this unjust ban soon!

  2. It is amazing how much media coverage is given to the injustice behind the Dorje Shugden ban. The power of the news coverage is in the potency of the message because the world is reading or hearing about the lack of compassion and contradiction in His Holiness’ action and speech frequently within a compact period of time.

    I am sure that the society of Princeton and surrounding area were all hyped up to receive one of the world’s greatest peace icon. With an awaiting audience who is on the look out about new on the Dalai Lama, it is a great opportunity to ride on this attention to share the truth about the Dorje Shugden controversy that completely contradicts the teachings of Lord Buddha.

    The message of the protestors who acted peacefully outside every venue where the Dalai Lama is speaking can leave a louder impact than what the teachings being diseminated inside the halls because what is happening outside the hall is more real than nice words on stage.

    I am certain that the intelligent and elite minds of Princeton are able to decipher this.

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.
