Seventh session of the 15th Tibetan Parliament concludes
« on: March 24, 2014, 05:54:44 AM »
As usual, I have some comments to make ?

1.   “in 2012 the two special envoys resigned citing the deteriorating situation inside Tibet and their “utter frustration” over the lack of positive response from China.”

Perhaps the deteriorating situation is because of CTA’s rejection of Dorje Shugden who is the Protector of Tibet? Perhaps it is time for the CTA to propitiate Dorje Shugden to bring stability and calm and open dialogue with China? Proof of this can be seen in the strong relationship between Dorje Shugden Lamas and the Chinese government. The Dorje Shugden Lamas do not create any harm for Tibetans, unlike the CTA’s Dorje Shugden ban.

2.   “Speaker Tsering also emphasized the need to follow Dalai Lama’s advice to work for the well being of Tibetan people inside Tibet and those in exile. “As per His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s advice to work for Tibetan people’s cause, we have unanimously passed resolutions and it is important to work to serve the people in the future.”

This is exactly why things are not working. The well being of Dorje Shugden practititioners is NOT being served. The Dalai Lama’s instructions or advice are contradictory and hypocritical, hence there can be no positive outcome. Karma 101.

3. “Since 2009, 129 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in Tibet to protest against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies and calling for the return of the exiled Tibetan leader to Tibet.”

And the CTA celebrates the deaths of these 129 Tibetans? Why has the Dalai Lama not called for a ban on self-immolation? Dorje Shugden practice has not caused any deaths yet it is banned.

The CTA needs  to take a long hard look at what they are doing. What they have been doing has not worked, so the answer is – change. Nothing is permanent. Lift the ban and see what happens, CTA. You may well be surprised.

DHARAMSHALA, March 22: The 15th Tibetan Parliament in Exile today concluded its seventh session during which the budget of Tibetan government in exile for the fiscal year of 2014-2015 was discussed.

Tibetan lawmakers, on the last day of the current session, passed a budget of INR 189,26,55,572 (One hundred and eighty nine crore twenty six lakh fifty five thousand five hundred and seventy two).

In his closing address, Speaker Penpa Tsering expressed hope in the Tibetan cabinet headed by Prime Minister Lobsang Sangay to resume stalled dialogue with China.

Nine rounds of talks took place between the envoys of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and People’s Republic of China since 2002. However, in 2012 the two special envoys resigned citing the deteriorating situation inside Tibet and their “utter frustration” over the lack of positive response from China.

Speaker Tsering also emphasized the need to follow Dalai Lama’s advice to work for the well being of Tibetan people inside Tibet and those in exile. “As per His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s advice to work for Tibetan people’s cause, we have unanimously passed resolutions and it is important to work to serve the people in the future.”

The lawmakers also thanked the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama on behalf of all the Tibetan Parliament for inaugurating and performing the consecration rituals for the newly constructed Tibetan Parliament building.

A minute’s silence was also observed in the Parliament to pay respect to Lobsang Palden, a Tibetan monk of Kirti Monastery who died after setting himself ablaze in Ngaba on March 16.

Since 2009, 129 Tibetans have set themselves on fire in Tibet to protest against China’s occupation of Tibet and its hard-line policies and calling for the return of the exiled Tibetan leader to Tibet.

“When Tibetans inside Tibet can sacrifice their lives for Tibet’s cause, it is Tibetans living in exile’s responsibility to inform the world of their messages and aspirations and garner support,” said the speaker. aspirations and garner support,” said the speaker.

Yes, WisdomBeing i agree fully with what you have said above. I would like to add further comments below.
 
Why hasn't the Tibetan Government immediately filled in the vacancies left by the special envoys? It shows a lack of commitment and the lackadaisical attitude of the envoys as well as the Tibetan Government. What makes CTA think that they could resume the talk with China when the Tibetans had not been serious about the talk?
 
Had the Tibetan Government been working towards the well being of the Tibetan people? Obviously not! The unnecessary deaths from self-immolation and pervasive suffering arising from Dorje Shugden ban are clearest examples of what the Tibetan government had been a disservice to their people.
 
CTA must really put into practice what it had resolved to do. Otherwise these resolutions become meaningless. Have you CTA forgotten your oath to serve the people? You must not discriminate against Dorje Shugden Tibetans! Give them their religious freedom, give them their basic human rights!
