The Dalai Lama Accepts Failure of His Approach regarding Tibet

The Dalai Lama accepts failure of his approach to getting independence of Tibet for the last 50 years. Since he is able to admit failure for a whole nation’s hopes, in time perhaps he would also state he was ‘wrong’ in the ban against Dorje Shugden. This is a good indication that Dalai Lama is…

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.
