This Buddhist centre is not a real Buddhist centre. No Buddhist will shun another human being just because they are different. Buddhist centres around the world accept anything to their centre even if they are not of the same religion. Why discriminate Dorje Shugen practitioenrs?

We are Buddhist too. We learn, practice and contemplate on Lord Buddha Shakyamuni's teaching which is the exact same source with your teachings. Just because it is presented differently, it does not mean it is wrong. BuddhaDharma is much higher than our wisdom and we should not evaluate it using our shallow wisdom.

We should follow what our Guru says and try not to create negative karma. Even if we do not agree, we can just keep quiet and move away. We should evaluate the teachings and think of the logic behind it before adopting it into our practice. That is what Lord Buddha said.

How ironic! You are celebrating Wesak day, the most important Buddhist festival when the whole world is commemorating the birth, enlightenment, and death of the Buddha, yet what you are doing is in total contradiction to Lord Buddha's teachings. What is the point of celebrating Wesak then since you don't even want to listen to Buddha's advice? So hypocritical!

This kind of irony is very common in the Tibetan community. Look at the CTA, they say they are a democratic government but yet they imposed a ban on Dorje Shugden practice and segregated Dorje Shugden practitioners from the Tibetan community. If you are known to be a Dorje Shugden followers, the Tibetans will refuse to talk to you and sometimes despise you.

It happened in a nunnery that as soon as the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed, the nuns took the Dorje Shugden statue down from their altar to destroy it. They stepped the statue on their feet before discarding it. Tell me, is that what Buddha Shakyamuni taught?

FPMT as the mother monastery has given a specific instruction not to allow Dorje Shugden to enter their temples, attend their teachings and programs, LDC naturally has to follow the rule. FPMT is too corrupted to follow what Buddha Shakyamuni had taught. Being in the good book of the Dalai Lama is more important than keeping their integrity. This is very disappointing.

Exactly, they celebrate Wesak day with discrimination, anger, hatred and jealousy. I don't see how they can have a successful Wesak day with a lot of merits accumulated. Instead of accumulating merit, they will be collecting de-merit since they harbour negative emotions.

Buddhist are supposed to practice tolerance, kindness, compassion, harmony, and peace. Just because somebody has a different belief system, it does not mean that they are bad people and their belief system is evil. It means that they are just different.

If they condemn Dorje Shugden practitioners, do they condemn the Muslims and Christians too? Their belief system is different too but why aren't they are labelled as Devil when they are in the same setting. This is the dicrimination.

That's because FPMT is no longer spiritual but tainted with individuals own egotistical agendas. They would forgo and abandon their Guru and practice - Dorje Shugden, after all they have done in bringing FPMT up. They forgot how it was when they had nothing and this is how they repay kindness and decided to follow a made up story that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit. Throw away all logic and truth because money, fame and power is more important.

Maybe this is why their Maitreya project can never take off and have so many obstacles and now with their Dagri Rinpoche case. What's worst, being a Dorje Shugden practitioner that doesn't harm anyone or harbouring a sexual molester and allowing him to prey on women.

I just cannot imagine how many women and NUNS can you believe that! he sexually assaults and FPMT knew but chose to keep quiet! I hope the hearing will be favourable to justice and truth for the victims.
