  1. Yes, simple yet direct explanation why the ban of Dorje Shugden practice is illegal and unacceptable from constitutional point of view. Perhaps with respect Dalai Lama must give us stronger and convincing reason why should we stop practicing the enlightened Dorje Shugden? Thank you.

  2. It is as simple as “if you respect me as your Guru , just follow what i say” even if means breaking the law or laws. Purely because these laws are just secular in nature and cannot be compared to the instructions of their holy guru. His words is the law !

  3. Unfortunately Benny what you say is true and applies to almost all Tibetans. But then again, the Dalai Lama isnt my Guru so, as much as I respect him, I dont have to do what he says.

    Second, in the context of Guru Devotion, we also have to check things out. Angulimala cut off 999 peoples index fingers on the instructions of his Guru. Was that Guru Devotion? Yeah, it was but coupled with WRONG VIEW so the result wouldnt have been good anyway.

    Unshakable Guru Devotion is key to attainments, but I think it also has to be coupled with logic, and I do remember seeing in the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion a verse about how you can explain in polite words to your teacher if you cannot comply with something.

    Is that verse a licence for us to forever make excuses about why we cant comply with our teachers instructions? No. If youv eexamined something with pure logic, and your motivation is pure, whats wrong with offering such an explanation?

    Anyway, it sounds weird and illogical to abandon a practice that your teacher has given you, just on the words of the Dalai Lama, when you should hold everything given by your teacher to be sacred. Seems to me like a perfectly logical reason to explain why you cant comply with the ban.

  4. Not only illegal and unconstitutional, but plainly criminal — at least in my country, Brazil, where it is punishable with up to five years in prison.

  5. Not only illegal and unconstitutional, but plainly criminal — at least in my country, Brazil, where it is put on a level with other crimes such as racism and torture and punishable with up to five years in prison.

  6. Matibhadra – it’s true that this level of discrimination is equal to the acts of racism from back in the day by the ku klux klan. It surprises me constantly that a group of people so globally known for their religion and their teachings of compassion are still behaving so brutally to each other. The discrimination is appalling and there needs to be much more awareness made to alert the world of this gross violation of human rights. This attacks the most basic rights and it is shocking that our modern world is still allowing something like this to happen

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.
