Resolution of the Tibetan Cholsum Convention

This resolution of the Cholsum convention is an example of the fanaticism that was caused through the Dalai Lama’s ban of a Buddhist protector deity amongst his own followers

Resolution of the Tibetan Cholsum Convention

August 27th – 31st , 1998 in Dharamsala

Delegates from various Tibetan organisations agreed on a resolution against persons who rely on Dorje Shugden as a protector deity.

“To make it impossible for those who are engaged in undermining the prestige of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and our government to get access to foreign travels, admission into schools, old age benefits, child support systems, and aid for the destitute, we will urge that these people are not put in the same category as other Tibetans.”

“His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the saviour who can decide the continuation or otherwise of Tibet and its subjects; he is the Captain of Peace in the world; he is the overall head of all Buddhist traditions on this earth; he is the master acclaimed by all the religious traditions of the world.”

“Regarding internal wellbeing (of His Holiness): Since complying with the wishes of (His Holiness) without opposition is the most important of the important, the spiritual and secular advice given by His Holiness in the overall interest of Tibet as a whole, should be adhered to with heartfelt faith and respect.”

“…in the future also, whenever the cause of Tibet is to be decided, the deliberations and the course decided upon by His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be accepted without question.”

“Furthermore, in all Tibetan enclaves, unless and until devotees of Dorje Shugden voluntarily give up their worship of Shugden, no one should patronise Tibetan restaurants, shops, stores, guest houses, etc. run by any devotee of Shugden.”

“Since books, documents, newsletters and whatever other literature disseminated by Mr Athar and the so-called Dorje Shugden Devotees’ Charitable and Religious Society are nothing other than the ideology and activity of Communist China, whoever has any such literature, should burn them.”

“From now on, no Tibetan will be allowed to subscribe to, purchase or read any of the above books and pamphlets.”

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.
