If Lobsang Sangay Had Honor, He Would Resign

One of the strongest indicators that the CTA is not a real democracy is the stark absence of a viable, functioning opposition party. In the recent 2016 Sikyong (Prime Minister) elections, it seemed as though a contender had been found in the form of Penpa Tsering…

There is no rest for the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) these days, as they find themselves dealing with scandal after scandal.

As they queue to vote, these women proudly brandish their green tax receipt books which identify them as being eligible to vote in the elections. But with so few choices of candidates who are always the same year after year, and are always plucked from the establishment, are they really participating in any kind of real democratic process?

Why is MP Juchen Konchok opposing the Dalai Lama’s middle way approach to Tibet’s issue. The Dalai Lama has spoken countless times he does not want independence but genuine autonomy for Tibet which is called the middle way approach. Yet you have MP Juchen Konchok and the conference people talking about full Rangzen or full independence. They are breaking their spiritual samaya (damstik) with the Dalai lama by opposing his views directly. They are opposing the Dalai Lama. When you oppose the Dalai Lama whether politically or spiritually within the Tibetan diaspora, you are asking for problems including segregation, ostracizing and perhaps losing your standing within the community.

Tibetans Offer Prayers To Express Solidarity After Nine Tibetans Set Themselves On Fire

The Tibetan leadership has destroyed Tibetan Buddhism

In Tibet, politics and religion have always been inseparable. The justification for this dangerous mix was that Buddhism would ‘cleanse’ and protect politics from abuse. However, it is much more common to see the religion being abused to explain away certain actions and decisions by the Tibetan government which seem to be devoid of logic and common sense.

Both Italy (top flag) and Switzerland (bottom flag) have rejected the Tibetans, as well as Sweden in a much earlier ruling in June 2016. Which country will the Tibetans next face rejection from?

The Tibetan leadership cannot seem to make up their minds about their stance towards China. On one hand, they say that the Chinese leadership are the root of all their problems. On the other hand, they say a "One China" policy can help their cause. Yet it was this same policy that is supposed to be the root of all their problems. The Tibetan leadership's incredible double standards extends to the point they will say anything just to ensure they stay on their donor's good side (in this case Donald Trump), even if it means undermining what the Tibetan people have struggled for for 60 years.

Tenzin Choeying, 20, attempted to self-immolate at the Central University for Tibetan Studies in Varanasi in a protest calling for Tibetan freedom.

Pictured are His Eminence Kensur Lati Rinpoche (third from left, in the background), His Eminence Zemey Rinpoche, His Holiness Zong Rinpoche, a young His Holiness Pabongka Chocktrul Rinpoche and His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe (far right). Despite the immense scholarship and attainments between all of these lamas, if they were alive today, none of them would be allowed back to Gaden Monastery for the sole reason that they all practiced Dorje Shugden. Yes, that is right, these lamas of such great repute would never be allowed to 'redeem' themselves in the hallowed halls of Gaden.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
