May H.H Dalai Lama live long and healthy.

May he officially, openly lifts the Dorje Shugden Ban, unites all the Buddhist, practice compassion and spread Dharma to more people who could be benefited.

The evil dalie was born into a Chinese-speaking Muslim family, a fact that would not be in itself so important if he had not spent his whole life trying to deny it. Wrongly recognized as the reincarnation of the British puppet, the previous evil 13th dalie, he disparaged his Buddhist gurus, whereby he broke with any Buddhist lineage, and therefore fell back to his native Islamic cult of violence. Faithful to his violent cult beliefs, and while transvestite as a Gelugpa monk, he attempted to achieve supreme political power among Tibetans, and therefore gave in to the demands of Nyingmapa political chieftains and waged a witch-hunt against Shugdenpas, thus destroying the Gelugpa tradition of his rejected gurus from the inside. Together with petty tyrants such as Pinochet, Suharto, Pahlevi, and assorted Latin-American banana-republic dictators, he used to receive his monthly allowances from the CIA. His root guru is the Jewish terrorist financier George Soros, to whom he shows unconditional obedience.  Now he resides in the garbage bin of history where he leads the evil dalaite personality cult, promoting medieval witch-hunts, gruesome self-immolations, and bloody racist riots.

I rejoice for the long life and good health of HH Dalai Lama and hope that he lifts the ban on Dorje Shugden very soon. So many suffer because of this ban and I hope that they can soon be equal to the other Tibetans and benefit from all social, governmental and monastic opportunities. No harm is obviously done by Dorje Shugden so lets unite the Tibetans and find peace with China!

Didn't the Dalai Lama say if we continue to practice Dorje Shugden, his life will be shortened? But 82 years old is considered a very long life, so his life was not shortened at all. Is it a lie then that his life will be shortened if the Tibetans continue to practice Dorje Shugden? How can we trust what the Dalai Lama says? If this is a lie, many things that he says could be a lie too, that includes saying Dorje Shugden is a demon. I hope one day the Dalai Lama will tell the truth and lift the ban.

Long Live the Dalai Lama! His Holiness had recently said that he is inspired to work for another 20 years! I can already imagine China rolling her eyes. It is good that His Holiness manifests enthusiasm in staying because we can get more Dharma from His Holiness if he decided to stay longer. His Holiness is a very important figure to spread Buddhism to the whole world. No other lama manage to do what His Holiness had achieved.

Another factor that would make His Holiness decided to stay is the Tibetans in exile. They are still homeless and CTA is not reliable. If there is anyone in this world can bring the Tibetans back to Tibet, it has to be His Holiness. No one can do what he can do. CTA is only helping themselves fattening their wallet. They dont care about the Tibetans because all of them have a passport from another country and they can just leave India anytime they want and stay in their 2nd homes in foreign countries which is all magically paid for considering their salary is not high.

I sincerely hope His Holiness will continue to stay because Tibetans all look up to him with great hopes. The life of Tibetans is in the hands of Dalai Lama. There is no one else that can help those poor Tibetans now, not even their own government. May Dalai Lama can return to Tibet as soon as possible and give a place to those Tibetans to call home.

82 and I do wish the Dalai Lama lives to over 100 as he wished. However, I do pray that His Holiness will swiftly lift the Dorje Shugden ban that is still causing so much sufferings for the Lamas and practitioners. Why are the Tibetan Leaders using Dorje Shugden as a cover-up for their failures? Terrible really. Disparaging an enlightened being and having the wrong view to see Dorje Shugden as an evil spirit. Lamrim had taught that the karma is to go straight to hell. Frightening, isn't it. The thing is, many followers of the Tibetan Leaders are being blindly led to this destination just due to their faith or fear. Really, really sad when the Buddha only works towards bringing sentient beings to enlightenment.

Let us pray for His Holiness's long life so that he can bring fellow Tibetans back to Tibet so that they don't have to suffer under the leadership of CTA anymore. His Holiness is the only beacon of light for Tibetans in Exile now. Their government has forsaken them and exploited them for their own gain and it is quite obvious for everyone to see that. Which government will glorify self-immolation? They are indirectly telling their citizens to go kill themselves because it is a good thing to do and you will be praised for doing it.

Self-immolating is not the correct way to protest against China's occupation of Tibet. There are alot of peaceful ways to do it and CTA should discourage their own people from using the extreme way. Since the 1st self-immolation occurred until now, CTA has not said anything to discourage their people from killing themselves. Instead, they did the opposite because the attention that the event generates is actually beneficial for CTA own selfish agendas.

That is why they went to the extent of publishing a book to glorify self-immolation to make sure their own people keep killing themselves and generate the much-wanted attention for CTA. This is how evil CTA is and how they exploited their very own people. May His Holiness bring Tibetans back to China and end CTA's tyranny.

The Dalai Lama is already 82 years old now but there is still no progress in the free Tibet movement. Even the Dalai Lama has given up on the free Tibet movement. In recent years, he has been asking the Tibetan to go back to Tibet saying China is rich and can give them money. Instead of free Tibet, the Dalai Lama is looking at becoming an autonomous region.

It is also the Dalai Lama's wish to go back to Tibet before it's too late. He wants to go back to the Potala Palace and he wants to go for a pilgrimage trip in Wu Tai Shan. It actually sounds disappointing that after 60 years of hoping, the Tibetans are told not to hope anymore. Isn't it a bit too late?

If this is the direction of the Dalai Lama, why is the CTA not following his instruction? The CTA has no intention to bring the Dalai Lama back to Tibet, they also do not have the intention to free Tibet. The CTA is only using the Tibet issue to make money for themselves. For the past 60 years, they have been surviving on donations which is easy money and they want to continue to live like that. Free Tibet is never going to happen!

I wish Dalai Lama long life and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma to benefit people. He has been a refugee for the past 60 years and it is time to bring him home. After 60 years of struggle, just accept that free Tibet is a failed cause, it will never happen.

Under the ruling of China, the life of the Tibetans has improved tremendously over the past 40 years. Many Tibetans are no longer nomads or farmers, they have better opportunities than ever. They are given the opportunity to study for higher educations, they can become a businessman if they want. There is no nepotism or favouritism like what is practiced in the CTA.

The life of the Tibetans in India is not better than those in Tibet. In fact, it is worse. They don't have an identity, they are still refugees receiving financial aids. They cannot move around freely and they cannot buy lands or property. Are the Tibetans in India happier? I don't think so. Recently, many Tibetans have decided to leave India, either migrating to overseas or going back to Tibet.

I am glad that the Dalai Lama celebrated his 82 birthday and wish him a long life to continue benefitting sentient beings. However, on the issue of the ban on Dorje Shugden, I really do wish that the Dalai Lama will swiftly lift the ban, to restore unity to his people, both Tibetans and non-Tibetan practitioners. After all, it is quite clear that the allegations of the practice of authentic enlightened protector Dorje Shugden of shortening the Dalai Lama's life are not true at all. Only a dingbat is still blind to the fact that the Dalai Lama has lived to be 82, which not many do not. The Dalai Lama had even claimed that he will live to 102. Well, good for him. Lift the Shugden ban, please!

We can't really say the Dalai Lama is not a good lama. He was the one who bring Tibetan Buddhism out of Tibet. Without him, we will not have the opportunity to learn Tibetan Buddhism. The Dalai Lama is very famous in the west and many westerners becomes Buddhists or start to learn about Buddhism because of the him.

20 years ago the Dalai Lama banned the practice of Dorje Shugden. Many people suffer because of that. But Trijang Rinpoche had said before there would be time the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden appear to go against each other but we should never lose our faith in them. They are working together to spread Dharma.

If we truly believe the Dalai Lama is an emanation of Cherenzig, the Buddha of Compassion, he will never harm people.  It is important not to criticise the Dalai Lama because he is a Buddha. If we criticise him or have wrong view on him, we will create a lot of bad karma for ourselves.

Yes, what you said is true. We should never pass judgement on attained beings such as the Dalai Lama. The enlightened masters work to propagate the Dharma and sometimes we in our ignorance see things wrongly. So it is best to stay out of the politics of it and to just devote to our Guru's method of practice and to gain the freedom from sufferings for ourselves and others. I had always found that politics mostly to be imposition of one person or a parties' views on others. If those views are good then the people will prosper but if its not, then the nation suffers. Just like the Tibetan Leaders, see how 60 years in exile just beget beggars of the highest calibre and nothing else. Otherwise, they would have been world leaders with the amount of sponsorships received and influence that the Dalai Lama had then. Too bad! All of the Dalai Lama's hardwork are down the drain due to self-serving government officials lead by Lobsang Sangay.

Dalai Lama turns 84 on 6th July this year and thousands of people celebrated his birthday at McLeodganj and worldwide.  This is of course celebrated Shugden practitioners too globally though without much fanfare and in low key due to the unholy ban.  But nevertheless we love the Dalai Lama and wish him long and healthy life. 

One point for certain and is proven here that worshipping Dorje Shugden does not bring untimely death to the Dalai Lama but bestow longevity to His Holiness the Dalai Lama as he is already 84 today.  So what is this faux pas?

Very true Icy! The ban does not make sense at all, even after so many years all the badmouthing against Dorje Shugden and the Dorje Shugden practice has proven that it has no basis at all.

When does this harmful ban finally end? It has been much too long and everyone wants to have the religious freedom that everyone deserves!
