Lama Zopa, Lama Yeshe and the ban on Dorje Shugden

The new blog  Scholars and Yogis, Please Check, posted an article today entitled ‘Good Advice from Lama Zopa…‘. This article sheds light on some of the history of the founders of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) and their reliance on Dorje Shugden in the past. Both Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa relied upon Dorje Shugden as their Dharma Protector. Lama Yeshe relied upon Dorje Shugden until his death. Even against the advice of the Dalai Lama. Unfortunately, Lama Zopa has followed the Dalai Lama’s advice and now he enforces the ban on Dorje Shugden within the FPMT.

    It appears that the Lamas prefer not to bit the hand that feeds it. I see the cowardice of the Tibetan clergy as paramount to the issue of individual freedoms as outlined within the Civil Rights Codes. They are as sheep and have less understanding of democracy than the supposed people they serve. Tibetan monks remind me of the eunuchs of the Last Emperor. Who willingly cut their manhood away from their bodies in exchange for a bowl of rice and warm bed. These lamas are more attached to the west materailism than the essence of Buddha’s Teachings.
    These are neither men nor monks. They are mindless sheep and cowards.

    Ignorance is alright but do you read tibetan?
    many people practice the so called middle way and are seriously endangered species by their own communities
    this is sick in the west one should be allowed to colour ones mind according to free thinking, yes and the coach may suggest. But have the middle ages conquered us all yes. Inquisition power and control on both sides i repeat.
    i am profoundly dissapointed in western mind. s ssss
