His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama says he may be the last one and will appoint a successor to his position. As a religious leader, that is his prerogative but why is a secular leader, Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay, always commenting on the matter?

Thanks to the heavy handed efforts to the Tibetan leadership, there is no freedom of speech within the Tibetan community. Opinions that diverge from the leadership's are often heavily and violently suppressed.

The self-immolations in Tibet are in reality suicides, and a running count of the number of times the Tibetan leadership has disappointed their people with their inability to initiate meaningful dialogue with China.

Switzerland is on China’s Side

By: Ashok Rao It’s high time that the Tibetan leadership stop advertising how bad they think China is. They drone on about how China steps on human rights, how unfair they are, and how China doesn’t give its citizens the religious freedom they deserve. Whether any of this is true or false is no longer…

Should the Sakya Lineage Be Dissolved?

By: Shashi Kei When the 14th Dalai Lama officially banned the practice of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden in 1996, His Holiness inflicted more than just a dent on the credibility of a Protector the Gelugs have worshipped for almost 400 years.

Not Just a Simple Advice but an Order

CTA and the Kagyus

This article seeks to point out the selectivity of the CTA when dealing with Tibetan Buddhist issues, and how their bias and prejudice have the potential to destabilize Tibetan society. Is the real intention of the Dalai Lama and CTA to unite their people and pursue a genuine fight for freedom, or is it to divide the Tibetan community for their own selfish agendas? Based on hard facts and analysis of past events, it would seem that the latter is more plausible…

A Reliable Source of Information?

The ban on the deity Dorje Shugden took a sour turn on an international scale as the issue became a target for disgruntled members of Dharma centres that engage in the practice of Dorje Shugden, such as the ex-New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) members. While many have carried on with their lives, a handful of ex-NKT members who call themselves ‘survivors’ decided to tarnish the name of their ex-Dharma centre. And what better way to do so than to use the wrongfully demonized deity to achieve their personal goals of revenge…

Half A Century Of Wasted Aid – What The CTA Hides

Things are not going well for the CTA. Unemployment rates amongst Tibetans in India are as high as 75%. Penpa Tsering stands accused of being a murderer. The Dalai Lama is plagued by protesters everywhere he goes. Questions are being asked about whether foreign aid is being appropriately used. By any single measure, this government should be broken. Don’t you wonder what keeps the status quo?

License to Kill?

In the landscape of today’s Tibetan Buddhism, it appears that crimes are being committed that go beyond just the breaking of spiritual vows, but involve threatening the lives of others, all in the name of religion. Surely, this cannot be what the Buddha taught…

Why Protestors Say The Dalai Lama Is Lying

Tibetans Cheated By Their Own Government

There are simply too many coincidences of impropriety, too many scandals and uninvestigated allegations, and too many ‘accidental’ concurrences between the disappearance of millions of dollars in foreign aid and a CTA known to be brazenly corrupt, to simply say that the CTA makes bad choices as they are an inexperienced government…

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…

Lama Zopa and the Future of the FPMT

FPMT has caused many people within their own organization and other organizations to doubt, lose faith, question and have negative thoughts against their gurus for practicing Dorje Shugden. In that way, they have caused many to break their samayas with their gurus. If FPMT continue on their present course, when this current Dalai Lama passes away, then they will have nothing left…

Dear Jamyang Norbu… I have a question for you

Dear Jamyang la, I read your article “The Dialectics Of Being Sheep” with a smile on my face. And yes, I do subscribe to Eli Wallach’s parting advice in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. So here I am guns ablazing. You called the Tibetans sheep!

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.
