His Holiness speaks about the issue of those who worship Dorje Shugden, who he refers to as a worldly spirit. He says that this spirit presents a danger to himself, the unity of Tibetan Buddhism and the Tibetan cause. He suggests that rather than taking refuge in spirits one should take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
The Dalai Lama now says, “it is up to the individual” to worship Dorje Shugden. Well, if what the Dalai Lama says is correct with regards to the fact that we should rely only in the Three Jewels, what is the Tibetan government doing relying on the unenlightened Protector Nechung? It is obvious that the Dalai Lama is purposely contradicting himself for a greater purpose.
