The Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden Blog is definately the most valuable resource I’ve found on the web for keeping up with the religious discrimination against Shugden practitioners. A recent post titled Tibetan Youth Congress Enforces Dalai Lama’s Ban on Dorje Shugden, reveals that the forced signature campaigns are still in full swing.
After reading this article, I came across a news article from India. The source of the article was obviously the Tibetan Government in Exile. It was full of their usual lies: Shugden practitioners are murderers sponsored by the Chinese Government etc.
It is sad to say the least, that in their battle against the Chinese Government, the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile have become just as bad if not worse than those they are fighting against. In the West, it is well known that the Chinese Government feed false information to the public, in order to fulfill their own agendas. In the Dalai Lama’s quest to become the spiritual head of the Tibetans he feeds lies to the Tibetans in order to remove those who don’t rely upon him from Tibetan Society. It is definately an important time to make heartfelt prayers for those brave Shugden practitioners in India and Tibet who continue to rely upon the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden.
Below is a section of the post mentioned about on the WBDS Blog:
A Spanish journalist came to the Dorje Shugden Society to interview its members about the Shugden Issue. He was in Manali when the incident happened. He reported that the Manali TYC had forced the public to come to the monastery for their signatures and oaths, telling them that they needed to close their shops and restaurants and that, if any of them did not come, the public would be asked to boycott their businesses.
The journalist was shocked at hearing this.
“Tibetans are saying that they are proceeding on the path of democracy; but they are using coercive force. I did not know much about Dorje Shugden. When I heard about the ban on Shugden, it made me want to find out more.”
The journalist asked people in Manali who had organized this campaign what was the benefit of banning this Deity? He did not get an answer, and he said they sounded hostile towards him. He said he had discovered that Tibetan religion and politics are completely mixed.
