Well, then we should ignore and burn the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion , Mr Tenzin Gyatso. Maybe CTA should send a MEMO out on this and retract all these books back and reprint them with a new title "50 verses of HH Devotion"
I wonder what the other sect will say to this?
Haha, on the same vein, I think in Tenzin Gyatso's 50 verses, there would be one additional verse, the 51th verse that says "The Dalai Lama or any other lama with a fancy title can overwrite my own teacher's instructions, and gives me the justification to abandon my own teacher if that higher ranking lama said so, even if i have never met that lama before and i only like him." Sound like that way to me
It's absolutely crazy that people even assume that someone else can override their own teacher just because they met a lama with a higher title and bigger name than their own teachers...even if they have never met this teacher at all. So, you're saying that HHDL whom i have never met is more important than my own teacher who has given me so much care, time, attention, love and material gifts, and most importantly, the authentic Dharma teachings? I dont think so.
Even if the Dalai Lama is really Cherenzig, but if we worship him the wrong way or for the wrong reasons i.e. requiring a high ranking lama to be our teacher because we think we simply deserve the best, then Dharma becomes a personality cult that leads to nothing and nowhere, especially in terms of spiritual practice. At the end of the day, following the Dalai Lama's advice does not mean that you are entitled to perform actions that contradict the Dharma.
Dorje Shugden is no doubt very close to the Dalai Lama as they have been collaborating in many activities together for many lifetimes. The other traditions know of this and thus somehow they do bear a grudge against Dorje Shugden which caused them to dislike him until this day. For the Dalai Lama to say he bans Dorje Shugden and then talks about something contradicting in the next sentence is very very peculiar, dont you think?
