The Dalai Lama’s Secrets: Long Live Secular Democracy

For centuries, the Dalai Lama has held the unchallenged role as both secular and religious leader of Tibet. It was not until very recently that the Dalai Lama stepped down from the secular sphere and passed these responsibilities to the government in exile, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA).

Destroying the Face of Tibetan Buddhism

In Tibet, every monastery had its own Dharma Protector, but the tradition did not begin…

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.
