This young man asked three questions of the Sikyong, a brave move considering students at the Tibetan Children's Village (TCV) School in Dharamsala had previously suffered an interrogation session after they questioned their Prime Minister too.

The Tibetan leadership cannot seem to make up their minds about their stance towards China. On one hand, they say that the Chinese leadership are the root of all their problems. On the other hand, they say a "One China" policy can help their cause. Yet it was this same policy that is supposed to be the root of all their problems. The Tibetan leadership's incredible double standards extends to the point they will say anything just to ensure they stay on their donor's good side (in this case Donald Trump), even if it means undermining what the Tibetan people have struggled for for 60 years.

Pictured are His Eminence Kensur Lati Rinpoche (third from left, in the background), His Eminence Zemey Rinpoche, His Holiness Zong Rinpoche, a young His Holiness Pabongka Chocktrul Rinpoche and His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe (far right). Despite the immense scholarship and attainments between all of these lamas, if they were alive today, none of them would be allowed back to Gaden Monastery for the sole reason that they all practiced Dorje Shugden. Yes, that is right, these lamas of such great repute would never be allowed to 'redeem' themselves in the hallowed halls of Gaden.

He in fact exposed to doubt and ridicule, the very foundations of the…

Make A Difference Today: Say Yes to Religious Freedom

On the 20-year anniversary of the Dorje Shugden ban, we at DorjeShugden.com wish to bring to light once again the history of this unethical ban, the sufferings it has caused and what all Shugden Buddhists around the world are tirelessly petitioning for. This is also a reminder that the fight to lift the Shugden ban is far from over, and that we should once again rekindle our resolve to see the end of such faith-based discrimination that has no place in the 21st Century.

Over the years, the Tibetan leadership have made many promises about Dorje Shugden, none of which have materialized over time.

Why Sabotage Your Own Country And People

For all the accusations levelled at China by the anti-Shugden people, the statement issued by China in February 2014 made it clear that China only wants to protect unity within the Tibet Autonomous Region and Greater China. For example, China’s position on the Dorje Shugden issue states without doubt that, they [the CTA] immediately launched a new evil action by reviving the dispute over the propitiation or non-propitiation of ‘Gyalchen Shugden’ by relying on opposition to it, with the evil hope to promote discord among believers within our borders…

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.
