Those who fight for rangzen (independence) claim to be pro-Tibet. In reality, while they may be pro-Tibet, their very platform is anti-Dalai Lama because they oppose the Dalai Lama who has said very clearly that umaylam (autonomy) is the best approach for all Tibetans.

What are these two plotting now? On the left is Lobsang Sangay, the current prime minister if the Tibetan people in exile and on the right is SR, his predecessor. Both of them were recently appointed by HHDL to be the DL's personal envoys. As the two most senior leaders in the CTA, how come they don't know where each other is at any given moment in time?

As they queue to vote, these women proudly brandish their green tax receipt books which identify them as being eligible to vote in the elections. But with so few choices of candidates who are always the same year after year, and are always plucked from the establishment, are they really participating in any kind of real democratic process?

CTA: A stunted democracy

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.
