The Karmapa Thaye Dorje really does not need the recognition from the Dalai Lama because it has never been in the tradition that the reincarnation of the Karmapa has to be recognised by the Dalai Lama. Vice versa, the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama does not need the lama of another lineage to recognise them.

Seeking a recognition from the Dalai Lama is purely for political reason and ease of work for people. Majority of the people in the world do not know how Tibetan Buddhism works. They think the Dalai Lama is the authority of the whole Tibetan Buddhism. Out of convenience, the CTA and the Dalai Lama didn't bother to explain because this type of misconception actually brings benefits to them.

As time passes by, it is proven that not having the recognition from the Dalai Lama was actually a blessing in disguise. The Karmapa Thaye Dorje could travel and give teaching freely, he could focus on his studies. Now tha the Karmapa Ogyen Dorje has gone into a retreat, the other Karmapa's Dharma activity is growing.

To CTA, religion is just a political tool and religious leaders are their political puppet. The sad thing is that even the Dalai Lama allowed this to happen. He knew Karmapa Thaye Dorje is the real Karmapa yet all these years he never said anything to clarify. I guess it's because he knew Sharmapa Rinpoche will never listen to him for political reason. Therefore, he let Karmapa Thaye Dorje to survive on his own, he never even took one photo with this Karmapa, on the contrary he showed full support to Karmapa Ogyen Trinley which makes Karmapa Thaye Dorje's life even harder as Tibetan might think he is the fake one. Fortunately Karmapa Thaye Dorje not only survive well but he even manage to gather a huge group of followers.

Now the Dalai Lama endorsed Karmapa has gone, then suddenly after so many years, the Dalai Lama suddenly wants to get close to Karmapa Thaye Dorje. Will anyone with a conscious mind believe what he is doing now is for the benefit of Karmapa Thaye Dorje? At least I don't think so.   

Anyone with a sane mind will be able to see through Tibetan leadership's tricks of and what they are up to with the new Karmapa. Tibetan leadership area really naive to think that the whole world could not see through their games. Only the Tibetans in exile are living in the bubble that they created and continues to stay there.

It is no coincidence when suddenly the Tibetan leadership decided to get close to Karmapa Thaye Dorje when their own Karmapa ran away and got caught with relationship scandals. It seems like they want to abandon ship with Karmapa Ogyen Trinley and move on to find a new substitute. Otherwise, there is nothing that they can justify their action of sudden interest in Karmapa Thaye Dorje.

Tibetan leadership had rejected Karmapa Thaye Dorje from day 1 and no pictures are taken with the Karmapa since. They even refused to let Karmapa Thaye Dorje to get ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. However,  Karmapa Thaye Dorje turns out to be the real one, proven by his large number of followers and his son being suspected as the Sharmapa now.

I think this is meant by the real one will thrive. Some Tibetan monks told me, even if the authority recognized a wrong reincarnated lama, the truth will be revealed after a while especially if the post he is holding is very high. The wrong candidate may not have the karma to stay at a high position for long before he get sicks or passing away. Even if he manages to survive, his dharma work will not bear much result.

The fact that Karmapa Thaye Dorje makes it until now and manage to get a big pool of followers despite the bad condition, has already showed that he is the real karmapa.

As absurd as it sounds, I think a large percentage will believe in anything the Dalai Lama and his government tells them. If you actually ask people why they 'love' the Dalai Lama, the Westerners will tell you he is a symbol of peace, love etc. The Easterners will not even have an answer because its typical of the asiatic attitude not to question and challenge. In other words, most people have at best a superficial knowledge about the Dalai Lama and CTA.

That's how they have been getting away with so many things. Just look at how many times, they changed their tune about why the Dalai Lama banned Dorje Shugden. The Dalai Lama was counting on the fact that most people cannot see through the absurdity of his allegations. Either they have inhaled too much of the CTA's propaganda or too determined to be angry at China to take a proper look and see that the Tibetan leaders are no different.

Therefore when the Karmapa Thaye Dorje makes a stand like this without inciting conflict, it makes people sit and pay attention. More Tibetan lamas should follow in the Kamapa Thaye Dorje's way.

Dalai Lama is not the head of Kagyu school. Similar, he is not the head of Gelugpa. But, H.H have create so many disharmony

To interrupt people affair by recognise the head of the school is a very bad sign and thus it causes the chaos. Who is Dalai Lama to interfere like this, just because he is famous in international? 

Dalai Lama have created much conflict in Vajrayana Buddhism, from Dorje Shugden issues, where all monasteries divided into two to cast out Dorje Shugden practitioner.  How much more disharmony he wanted to show to the Buddhist world.

The Tibetans have been worshipping His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the god-king of Tibet. Whatever he says is the golden rule that cannot be disobeyed. Those who disagree or disobey his instruction will face severe consequences and risk being rejected by their own community.

There is no way in the world that a government can act the way that Tibetan leadership did and get away with it and the people are still loyal to them. The monstrosity that the Tibetan leadership had done is totally unacceptable but the Tibetans still go along with them because of their faith and loyalty to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Without His Holiness, the Tibetan leadership will fall and it will be very soon. His Holiness is already at a ripe old age and he can choose to enter into clear light anytime he wants. In the post Dalai Lama era, Tibetan leadership will have a hard time controlling their people unless they manage to get another high lama such as the Karmapa.
