Dalai Lama’s Stick Referendum Contradicts the Vinaya

From the new blog ‘Investigating the Campaign Against Dorje Shugden’:

The purpose of this article is to examine whether or not the recent actions of the His Holiness the Dalai Lama with respect to the practice of Dorje Shugden are in accordance with the Vinaya, Buddha’s Code of Conduct. My intention here is not to engage in hurtful speech or divisive speech but rather to investigate the Dorje Shugden dispute through the lens of the Vinaya with a wish to determine which of the two opposing views on this practice is in accord with the Dharma. In particular, the Dalai Lama has initiated referendums at each of the great Gelugpa monasteries on this issue and my efforts here are focused on checking the validity of these referendums.

    He might as well picked petals from a Daisy!
    They Love Me! They Love Me Not!
    They Love Me, I Love Myself, Not!
    They Love Me! Forget Me Not!

    Dalia and Republican, both use Karl Rove, to advise their campaigns.

    We didn’t do it and one viscious lie after another.
    Dalia Lama, You have Lost this Battle Already.
    Save us All from future humiliation from you,
    As the Fool
    You are!
    Retire and leave the stage.Show some integrity
    Maybe you’ll retain some sort of dignity,
    After we’re done with the remake and your deface!

    If he could, he would do as before, and slaughter the Western Shugden People and any of his perceived foes.Instead all he can do this time, is to sputter lies and false accusations from his throne and pick up sticks.
    As with his previous days, when he had more latitude to batter his enemy’s children to death against the rocks and to make their women barren, the “Great Fifth” .

    The Dalai Lamas as Supreme War Lords

    These days there is an unwillingness to speak about this terrible civil war between the Gelugpas and the Kagyupas from which the “Great Fifth” emerged as the hero of the battlefield. We know that the Fifth Dalai Lama called up the war god Begtse against the Tibetans several times so as to force through his political will. Additionally, in eastern Tibet he was celebrated as an incarnation of the ancient hero, Gesar. He himself was the author of a number of battle hymns like the following:

    Brave and tested are the warriors,

    sharp and irresistible the weapons,

    hard and unbreakable the shields,

    Fleet and enduring the horses.

    (Sierksma, 1966, p. 140)

    This brutal call to absolutely annihilate the enemy into its third generation was also composed by him:

    Make the lines like trees that have had their roots cut;

    Make the female lines like brooks that have dried up in winter;

    Make the children and grandchildren like eggs smashed against rocks;

    Make the servants and followers like heaps of grass consumed by fire;

    Make their dominion like a lamp whose oil has been exhausted;

    In short, annihilate any traces of them, even their names.

    (quoted by Sperling, 2001, p. 318)

    With these instructions I(the preeminent historical model for the current Fourteenth Dalai Lama) turned to the Mongolians under Gushri Khan and thus legitimated the terrible deeds they inflicted upon the Tibetans. „One may say with some confidence,” Elliot Sperling writes, „that the Fifth Dalai Lama does not fit the standard image that many people today have of a Dalai Lama, particularly the image of a Nobel Peace Prize laureate” (Sperling, 2001, p. 319). Barely two centuries later (at the end of the 18th century) a Red Hat lama sought revenge for the humiliation of his order by the Dalai Lama, and fetched the Indian gurkhas into the country.

    The “Great Thirteenth” himself formed an army consisting of regular troops, a lay militia, and the “golden army” as the monastic soldiers were known. Warrior monks were nothing out of the ordinary in the Tibet of old, although their training and their military equipment was less than desirable. They firmly believed in the law of violence, worshipped their special deities, and maintained their own secret cults. Lama ‘Longear’ was the leader of the troops in the lamasery, it says in western travel report of a lama commander (at the start of the twentieth century). “Although a monk, he didn’t know how to say his prayers and because he had killed several people was not allowed to have part in the chanting services. But he was considered a man of courage and audacity — greatly feared in the lamasery, a mighty friend and terror to his enemies” (quoted by Sierksma, 1966, p. 130).

    The Tibetan army assembled by the Thirteenth Dalai Lama was composed of three services: the cavalry, equipped with lances and breastplates, the somewhat more modern infantry, and the artillery. Oddly enough, the name of Allah was engraved in the riders’ helmets. These came from a Mohammedan army which was said to have once moved against Lhasa. A terrible snowstorm surprised them and froze them all to death. Their weapons and armor were later brought into the capital and displayed there in an annual parade. It was probably believed that the helmets would offer protection in the battle against the Mohammedans — the arch-enemy from the Kalachakra Tantra — since they would not dare to fire at the holy name of their supreme god.

    This army of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, to a large part composed of serfs, was more or less picturesque, which naturally did their warlike, “unBuddhist” performance no harm. Yet one did not just fight with weapons in the hand but also operated magically. During the “Great Prayer Festival” for example tormas (dough figures) of the cavalry and the infantry were thrown into a fire so as to do harm to the enemies of the land through this fire magic. Every single sacrificial offering was supposed to later “function [like a] bomb” in reality (Chö-Yang, vol. 1 no. 2, 1987, p. 93). [3]

    The Dalia Lama only takes what we let him take from us.
    The merging of Western And Asians Practioners has taken little time, to become One Voice.
    Dedicated to Preseving the Teachings of Lord Buddha.

    Kuten Lama says. “The hardship is because (the Dalai Lama) took our religious freedom, our human rights. But it is very hard for us ordinary persons to explain to the world because he is so powerful and famous and our words are not too important.”

    Most important has been that,
    “Our Words are Infintely More Important than one man’s word alone.
    This man’s words are only as important, as We Empower Them to Be.
    The lessons that the West has taught the East.
    Is that each and every one of our voices are equally important
    As that of one voice.
    “United We Stand,
    Divided, We Fall”.
    No longer do our Brethern need to fear,the likes of this cheap imitation and poor substitue for a Buddha. Who portrays himself as a holy being,known as the Dalia Lama. A title given to a ruthless and viscious War Lord [5th dalia lama],for slaughtering his own people and saved the Mongols the trouble of doing it all alone.
    Our words are more importnt than his, because we speak for millions.
    He represents only the devisive aristocrat refugees and the ignorant. All of whom, cower as children terified by a nightmnare. After hundreds of years of complete oppression and cruelty, equal to anything found in the Annals of African Black Slavers sagas.
    Each of us is empowered to Freedom Of Speech and Freedom Of Religion to voice our Beliefs Without the Likes of The Two-Bit Usurper, known as the Dalia Lama.
    No Fear!
    Shout it out!
    Your Words are Very Important to Reveal this Charlatan,
    Who Deceives and Lies to the World.

    He is not a Buddhist!
    Let alone a Buddha.
    Only, a Man wearing Robes,
    Who is lying to Everyone!
    Stop Your hypocrisy and Deceit!
    Step Down from your Throne,
    Leave Us Alone!
    Somebody must Change!
    It’s a New Day!
    Turn the Wheel!
    The West is the Best!
    Dharma Thrives,
    Bill Of Right,
    Make It Right!
    Your Words are Important,
    Very Important!
