How amazing. I was looking through the older posts, and found this!
Back in 2009, this forum post was discussing about how "Samdong Rinpoche scolded the Abbots for PUSHING THE SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN OF ALL MONKS TO RENOUNCE SHUGDEN IN THREE GREAT SEATS OF SERA, GADEN AND DREPUNG!!!"
So, in 2009 - there were already existing contradicting actions from Samdong Rinpoche. Prior to 2009, HHDL and Samdong Rinpoche were praises the campaign! So was this scolding a side action from Samdong Rinpoche telling the abbots not to sign the campaign?
In 2011, we now know that the Kalon Tripa Samdong Rinpoche did not do the work for himself or anyone else (inferring subtlely to the Dalai Lama), and that he worked for the Tibetan Govt, for the Dalai Lama and for the Tibetan people in order to FULFILL THE COMMAND OF HIS ROOT GURU H.H. KYABJE TRIJANG RINPOCHE. (http://www.dorjeshugden.com/forum/index.php?topic=1302.0
Now in 2012, HHDL has started to soften his enforcement on the DS ban.
The plot continues to develop...
