From http://wisdombuddhadorjeshugden.org

Why is the Dalai Lama suppressing religious freedom?

Do you know...

* that the Nobel Peace Prize winner and supposed champion of human rights is busy at work removing the religious rights and freedoms of one section of his own Tibetan people and persecuting all those who are trying to stand up for these rights;

* and that he is using all his political power to destroy a well-loved and centuries-old religious tradition, causing huge confusion and pain among thousands of Tibetans;

* and that this religious tradition he is trying to destroy is the one taught to him by his own Spiritual Guide, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (1901-1981), the Junior Tutor of the Dalai Lama;

* and that in a world where the Western and American ideal is the separation of politics and religion to prevent such abuses of power, the Dalai Lama is the very embodiment of the union of politics and religion;

* and that his actions are illegal and unlawful, directly contravening the Declaration of Human Rights, the Indian Constitution, and even the Tibetan government-in-exile's own constitution;

* and all this makes the Dalai Lama's actions contradictory and hypocrital - if you go around preaching non-violence and religious tolerance, it is hypocritical to then actively suppress religious freedom to advance your own political agenda of keeping control of the Tibetans:

    ...From the AP reports, Seattle, April 14, 2008: Inside the (University of Washington) arena, the Dalai Lama received an honorary degree and spoke of the importance of employing dialogue and mutual respect to solve problems. "You will make this century of peace," the Dalai Lama told students. "Today's world (is) heavily interdependent. Destruction of your neighbor or enemy is destruction of yourself."

* and when you say "I now practice all Tibetan religious traditions and think you should too", maybe what you really mean is "I want to control all Tibetan religious traditions";

* and that the Dalai Lama's "spiritual" reasons for repressing the practice of Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden comes across as both superstitious and incompatible with basic Buddhist teachings:

For example, the Dalai Lama says that Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden is a spirit who causes harm to his own life and the cause of a free Tibet. However, every Buddhist knows that if you go for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, you are protected from harm from spirits. So how can such a spirit harm a supposed Buddha? How can such a spirit affect the cause of a free Tibet? It makes no sense, but of course these reasons are designed to produce a powerful emotional response in the intensely nationalistic, devout and loyal exiled Tibetans.

* and that, because of the Dalai Lama's calculated and uncompassionate political campaign of religious oppression, many Tibetans in India are now outcasts within the exiled;

* and that even Western followers of the Dalai Lama are blindly repeating his claims that those who are following this tradition are spirit-worshippers and a sectarian cult, despite all evidence to the contrary (in this way deliberately setting out to destroy the reputation of Western Dorje Shugden practitioners and prevent people attending their Centers);

* and that no matter how many peaceful representations, letters and petitions have been sent to him over the last ten years begging him to reconsider, he has ignored every single one and refused to engage in any dialogue;

* and that just because the Dalai Lama is a media darling of the West does not mean that he is infallible and above reproach, and that just because he is a supposed God King and Nobel Peace Prize winner does not make him above the law or immune to grave mistakes;

If you now read points 1-22 on this site, you will see actions and behaviour that are contradictory and hypocritical. If you say one thing to everyone in the West, but in your own backyard you engage in systematic calculated political religious repression, then what is the world to think?
 
The purpose of this website is not to slander the Dalai Lama, but to point out a grave mistake that he is making. We urge him, yet again, to lift his ban on the practice of the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden and to ask his followers to stop persecuting Dorje Shugden practitioners right now.

We don't like hypocrisy. We hope you don't too.

Congratulations for such remarkably simple instrument!
I did not have time to read the chapters, but the form is so useful, thank you for doing this.
You should send your url to every newspaper in the world, every journalist, every authority you can think of.
It would seem that you are a NKT person.
To send your work to the whole world would be an excellent way of backing your holy Lama's actions.
Congratulations!

Nice site, but two points popped to my mind...

1 - It is an anonymous site. It does not tell who is behind it. Therefore, it falls into the category of "shooting from the bush", and that is not good. It should explicitly tell who is the author.

2 - It is an anonymous site. It does not tell who is behind it. But nevertheless, the contents are heavily GKG-laden, and therefore it gives an appearance that it is a cloaked NKT-site. If there would be more content from other DS-Lamas apart from GKG, it would appear more, well, DS oriented. Now it appears as a "just one more of those NKT-things".



Well, that was just my opinion...  8)

Excellent opportunity to put a message in that website, or even in this website, saying something like this:

Dorje Shugden people are forced to remain anonymous because of the persecution the Dalai Lama constantly preaches against them. They can loose their jobs, even their opportunities to talk about Dharma to others because they cannot teach Dharma without being abused or humiliated.

This anonimity is at the same time the result and the symptom of religious persecution and segregation. Dorje Shugden practitioners do not shoot from the bush, they just want to worship with freedom and lead a normal life. This is prevented by the actions of the Dalai Lama and his followers, both in Asia and the rest of the world.

Who would accept as an employee, as a co-worker, as a teacher, the worshipper of an evil spirit? This is the type of danger that Dorje Shugden practitioners are constantly submitted to, because of the actions of the Nobel Peace Prize.

I just noticed that a new 'point' has been added to the website. Point #8 is now "Is the Dalai Lama the only spiritual leader in Tibetan Buddhism?":

http://www.wisdombuddhadorjeshugden.org/point08.php

Again, tastefully done... unlike some other website we've been talking about.  :-\

Oh, sorry. I saw that there were 24 points now instead of 23, so I was trying to figure out what was new.

The same words of religious tolerance were repeated during yesterday's speech:

Quote
Then, my #2 commitment is religious harmony. All the religious traditions, as I mentioned earlier, [have the] same potential. Therefore, [we] must respect all traditions. In the philosophical field, [there are] big differences. Some differences are fundamental differences, but all carry [the] same message: [the] message of love, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment, [and] self-discipline. So, all have [the] same potential. Therefore, we must respect all traditions.

Then, also, it is a matter of fact [that], among humanity, there are so many different mental dispositions. And traditionally, geographically, climatically, and life-style [they are] different. So therefore, at different locations, [at] different sort of times, these great Masters [and] great Teachers came. It worked, all these many traditions, [for] thousands of years. Millions of people really got inspiration. Today also, and future also. Therefore, it is really worthwhile to respect, to admire, to appreciate. So that’s my #2 commitment.
