What Happens to Dorje Shugden Lamas?

It is common knowledge that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the Tibetan leadership based in Dharamsala) continuously promotes the false notion that Dorje Shugden is an unenlightened spirit or demon. They claim that he arose from the culmination of flawed and mistaken prayers made during his previous life as Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen. As a lowly…

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…

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.

The CTA Digs Itself Into A Hole, Again

On 14 November 2016, the Central Tibetan Administration’s (CTA) Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) released its latest installment of anti-Dorje Shugden material, a video titled, ‘Shugden Protesters: Allegation versus Facts’. The content of this 13-minute video attests to the singularity of its purpose i.e. to bolster the CTA’s justification for its now 20-year…

7 Reasons Why The Dorje Shugden Ban Undermines The Tibetan Cause

The Central Tibetan Administration likes to blame Dorje Shugden for the failure of the Tibetan cause. In fact, they insist that Dorje Shugden practitioners are the reason why the Tibetan dream of returning to their homeland has thus far not materialized. Here are seven reasons why the CTA’s Dorje Shugden ban has harmed and damaged the Tibetan people’s dream of living as free people.

CTA and the Kagyus

This article seeks to point out the selectivity of the CTA when dealing with Tibetan Buddhist issues, and how their bias and prejudice have the potential to destabilize Tibetan society. Is the real intention of the Dalai Lama and CTA to unite their people and pursue a genuine fight for freedom, or is it to divide the Tibetan community for their own selfish agendas? Based on hard facts and analysis of past events, it would seem that the latter is more plausible…

A Reliable Source of Information?

The ban on the deity Dorje Shugden took a sour turn on an international scale as the issue became a target for disgruntled members of Dharma centres that engage in the practice of Dorje Shugden, such as the ex-New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) members. While many have carried on with their lives, a handful of ex-NKT members who call themselves ‘survivors’ decided to tarnish the name of their ex-Dharma centre. And what better way to do so than to use the wrongfully demonized deity to achieve their personal goals of revenge…

Half A Century Of Wasted Aid – What The CTA Hides

Things are not going well for the CTA. Unemployment rates amongst Tibetans in India are as high as 75%. Penpa Tsering stands accused of being a murderer. The Dalai Lama is plagued by protesters everywhere he goes. Questions are being asked about whether foreign aid is being appropriately used. By any single measure, this government should be broken. Don’t you wonder what keeps the status quo?

Recalling The Tibetan Identity

Considering their influence over the population, it beggars belief that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has yet to condemn self-immolations as un-Buddhist, to prevent further loss of life. More surprisingly, the CTA even published on their website an article in support of self-immolations, titled “Is self-immolation anti-Buddhist?”

Why Sabotage Your Own Country And People

For all the accusations levelled at China by the anti-Shugden people, the statement issued by China in February 2014 made it clear that China only wants to protect unity within the Tibet Autonomous Region and Greater China. For example, China’s position on the Dorje Shugden issue states without doubt that, they [the CTA] immediately launched a new evil action by reviving the dispute over the propitiation or non-propitiation of ‘Gyalchen Shugden’ by relying on opposition to it, with the evil hope to promote discord among believers within our borders…

Thanks to the Dalai Lama?

Today, the name “Dorje Shugden” itself heralds the coming of pure Dharma. Looking at the benefits that have arisen from the ban, perhaps, just perhaps, the ban can even be viewed as one of Dorje Shugden’s enlightened activities, one that allows him to correct the degeneration of Lama Tsongkapa’s lineage and protect this precious doctrine for future generations, just as he swore to do many centuries ago as Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen. And, as ironic as it may sound, all this is thanks to the Dalai Lama…

Theological Implications of the Dalai Lama’s Religious Ban

In analyzing the Dalai Lama’s Dorje Shugden ban, it is easy enough to see how restricting a person from expressing his religious beliefs is a breach of his human rights.

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.
