Western Shugden Society website redesign

The Western Shugden Society has redesigned their website. The site has a lot of new photos, videos and information that weren’t included before. Now the website is similar to the new book (A Great Deception) in a multimedia format. However, there is a lot of information in the book that can’t be found on the website. The two together are a powerful combination that have the function of freeing Buddhism from political pollution and protecting Shugden practitioners from persecution by the Dalai Lama.

    I really enjoy the new web site design!
    Thank you for all of your hard work to clarify the mystique carefully constructed by various elements as exemplified by Professor Robert Thurman. Robert has always held a high degree of respect for his own greed and Three Poisons in general to pursue his agenda. I took notice of Bob when called one day in 1997 from Gethesemane Monastery in Kentucky. Where he and the Dalia were plotting, as they did to Thomas Merton. Dali and Bob invoked a voice I had never heard before. Telling me or shouting through the phone various explicatives and many,many threats to cease and desist any further shennanigans about Dorje Shugden.
    Ah yes! I remember them well!
    The Great Deception is a Hallmark of definitive documented proof that is easily accessible for the novice and curious to find the truth for themselves as to exactly how the Dalia Lama chose to emmanate a great upheaval during this despicable and unprescedented period we are all forced to suffer.Unheard of within the annals of Mahayanna Buddhism to this day. Thank you for solidifying the facts. So we will all know what we each must say and do to protect and uphold the dharma and Great Lineage of Our Masters.
    They rejoice by our actions to Protect the Lineage.

    A wonderful Christmas message from the Dorje Shugden Charitable Society 8-0

    Dear Brothers and Sisters:

    We wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And we pray that the year 2010 will bring happiness and prosperity to you and your family!

    For last 13 years, Shugden devotees have undergone abuses and discriminations on ground of their religious faith; but they sustained them because of their daily practice of tolerance, compassion and love. Moreover, they strive to create a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere and society.

    Shugden devotees have no negative feeling but unconditional love towards those who abuse and discriminate them. Such is the fruit of their sincere practice of Lord Buddha’s and Lord Tsongkhapa’s teachings.

    As supporters of religious freedom, they respect all religious beliefs existed in the world. And they engage in the cause for world peace.

    For five minutes, at 12: 05 AM, on December 31, 2009, we request you to pray together for the world peace and religious freedom, regardless of place where abide then.

    Our prayers are:

    1 May all highly beings and spiritual masters live long for the sake of Buddhism and living beings!

    2 May Gaden Nyengyu Tradition shine forever!

    3 May everyone enjoy religious freedom!

    4 The rays of peace, harmony, and love shine on people of all colors and religions!

    Dear Friends,Patrons,Students and Well wishers,

    I would like to take this oppurtunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year,for the coming year 2010.These are special moments and bizzare times.Yet,a special era and period for all of us to work towards the common good for all-and forever!

    There may be widespread degenaration in human values,problems related to the failing economy,enviorenment and violence particularly terrorism.Evenso,the awareness and altruistic thoughts of many that also voice their concerns are amazing.The fragility of matters related to peace the eco-system and well-being of the future generation of humanity at the same time teaches us the fallibility and transient nature of all things.From a spiritual point of view,there could not have been better times to have lived in this world but these!

    It only motivates the astutely observant and analytically guided spiritual practitioners to make the best from these times.Whether by realising the precousness impermenance of Human rebirth or the uncertainty of death looming on us all,like the sword of Damocles.
    Many do and should, join in prayers and make aspirations towards the well-being of all living beings.There are temporary benefits that all humanity desires,such as;prosperity,
    longevity,progeny and success in their ventures.And,there are ultimate benefits desired by the courageous and altruistically motivated Bodhisattvas who cherish the hapinness of all living beings for all times to come.I will ask you all to join me in making aspirations and prayers towards the fulfillment of temporary and ultimate benefit of all that includes yourself.

    As we all do know,that self-cherishing ventures have short term benefits and objectives that hold others at the core of it’s interests are unsurpassed and have inconceivable benefit–besides accumalated merit.If this is proselity and too much Buddhism for some ,I hope the concerned non-buddhist or free-lancer try looking into the universality of the message involved.And if pleased with it,then let this be my humble prayer concern and wishes for Christmas and the year 2010.Greetings and best regards once again.From Kundeling,Sumati Gyana.

    It is readily apparent throughout this book that the Western Shugden Society is no fan of Communist China,[I am a fan/tc] a “totalitarian regime” that “invaded” Tibet and has now “occupied” it for more than 50 years. Still, primary blame for the “catastrophic decline” of Buddhadharma in Tibet over the past few hundred years, which ultimately precipitated the loss of the country to the Chinese, rests solely on the unholy mixing of religion and politics which the book calls ‘Lama Policy’. The current Dalai Lama’s political ambition to become the unprecedented spiritual head of all Tibetan Buddhists, his unfailing adulation of Mao, and his fascination with ‘half-Buddhist, half-Marxist’ communism (seriously retarding his exile government’s democratization) are all given heavy treatment in the book. Many Tibetans feel personally betrayed by the Dalai Lama, who unilaterally handed over the cause of Tibetan independence to the Chinese as early as the 1980s, without consulting either the Tibetan parliament or his people. Once Tibetan nationals started to realize that their hopes for a ‘Free Tibet’ had been ruined, the Dalai Lama’s scapegoating of Dorje Shugden practitioners began… and for the past 15 years this clintonesque misdirection has worked amazingly well, albeit to the detriment of the Tibetan exile community’s internal trust, peace, and harmony.

    New book by the Western Shugden Society
    The book puts forth a most intriguing thesis, which is touched on throughout various chapters as it retraces the history of the Dalai Lamas; the implications will be earth-shattering for many Tibetan Buddhists, yet liberating for many others including myself. That is, “a great deception” has been perpetrated since the death of the Fourth Dalai Lama, in that no one who has carried this title since—from the Fifth to the current Fourteenth—has actually fulfilled the First Dalai Lama’s promise to his root Guru, Je Tsongkhapa, who was the founder of the Gelugpa tradition: “From now until I attain enlightenment I shall seek no refuge other than you… I pray that, with my mind free from the influence of attachment and hatred, I may strive to maintain your doctrine and cause it to flourish without ever giving up this endeavor” (translation in the book Heart Jewel by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso). The first four Dalai Lamas are presented as pious, holy men who lived “exemplary lives of pure moral discipline and spiritual practice,” and so there is no doubt about their authenticity.

    In sharp contrast, the so-called Fifth Dalai Lama’s military escapades (including sectarian suppression of the Jonang, Kagyu, and Bön traditions), political intrigues (including the assassination of his spiritual ‘rival’, Dragpa Gyaltsen), and abhorrence of his root Guru the Panchen Lama call into doubt whether he was really the reincarnation of the Fourth Dalai Lama at all. Rather, “Many Gelugpa lamas believe that Dragpa Gyaltsen, and not Losang Gyatso, was the actual incarnation of the Fourth Dalai Lama and that when Dragpa Gyaltsen died he became a Protector of Je Tsongkhapa’s Ganden tradition” (i.e., he manifested as Dorje Shugden). Indeed, it would be interesting to know how pervasive this interpretation is amongst contemporary Shugden Lamas, because it helps to explain so much, for example, why the earliest rituals to Dorje Shugden identified him as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara (see the Dorje Shugden History website), and why it is that the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Dalai Lamas weren’t particularly noteworthy, to say the least.

    The book is a damning account of the Fifth, Thirteenth, and current Dalai Lamas’ theocratic dictatorships and their failures as political and spiritual leaders. And, although the book is heavily sourced, it is intended merely as a starting point for journalists and scholars to dig even deeper. In a sense, exposing the Dalai Lama’s “open secrets” to the world in this way is like giving us permission to look past the facade and not feel blasphemous for doing so: the authors invite the world again and again to scrutinize the Dalai Lama’s actions just as they would any politician, and not be mesmerized by the celebrity of this ‘simple Buddhist monk’. For these Tibetan Buddhists, the Dalai Lama can no longer hide behind the mask of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, for his actions simply do not merit it: even the current Dalai Lama’s militant campaigns, political intrigues, and abhorrence of his root Guru (whom he never acknowledges) are laid bare, a haunting replay of the Great Fifth’s samsaric life.

    Nevermind the fact the Dalai Lama has never had the ecclesiastical authority to ban prayers to Dorje Shugden, what this book makes transparent is that neither does he have the moral authority. Of course, the Dalai Lama’s Buddhist teachings and lectures are spectacular, which is a testament more to the wisdom and kindness of his unsung Spiritual Guide, Trijang Rinpoche, a Dorje Shugden practitioner who arguably was the greatest Tibetan Buddhist master of his generation. The Dalai Lama often says that we have to choose between himself or Dorje Shugden, which in effect amounts to choosing either the Dalai Lama or the late Trijang Rinpoche; for many Shugden practitioners this has been a difficult but clear choice, and this book makes it crystal clear.

    Clear and helpful analysis, thank you. With this new book and an increasing amount of revelations of the Dalai Lama’s bad behavior on a variety of blogs and Internet sources, the situation is becoming clearer by the day and it is becoming harder for the Dalai Lama to maintain the great deception. Dorje Shugden’s function, being as he is an emanation of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, is to clear away confusion.

    From the Dalai Lama’s point of view, politics and religion are together.

    So a religious matter for one side, it is also political matter to the Dalai Lama’s side.

    Why? Becuase somehow affects his negotiations with the Chinese Government?

    It would be interesting to know what has he been negotiating with the Chinese:

    Does the Dalai Lama actually plans to return as a political and religious leader to Tibet?

    Maybe he cannot return to Tibet as a political leader without being in the Communist Party’s payroll, correct?

    Ok, lets assume the Chinese accept him and he actually would accept returning to Tibet merely as a religious leader (no matter religion is not the for Chinese Government’s cup of tea).

    But if the Dalai Lama is neither the leader of the Tibetan schools of Buddhism nor the Bons, what kind of leader is he? What does he actually wants to do?

    Make his own tradition… by amalgamating all existing traditions? If he does this he may return to Tibet without being in the Chinese Government’s payroll? Maybe then he does not even need to return to Tibet.

    I understand that this may be also why a religious matter for him is also a political matter. I guess.

    I hope the Dalai Lama and his followers can also understand it is not that everyone wants to mix of religion and politics like him.

    The DL reminds me of Syndrome in the movie The Incredibles. Syndrome has no super powers of his own so he creates power through artifice and money and kills off all the actual super heroes, wanting everyone to see him as the only super hero. The DL is “killing off” the great heroes of the Gelugpa school such as his own Guru Trijang Rinpoche, and also leaders of the other schools. Using the artifice of politics, money and power, he has hijacked Buddhism to his own selfish ends. But he did not count on the Incredibles to stop him! and ultimately of course he is no match for Dorje Shugden.

    As shown extensively in ‘A Great Deception’ using reliable third party sources, the Dalai Lama had great reverence for Mao and wanted to spread communism in Tibet before he left. He had already signed Tibet over to the Chinese in the 17 point agreement and wanted to work with them to establish a communist Tibet. He only changed his tune when he reached India in 1959. If the CIA had realized where his ideological loyalties lay, I don’t think they would have supported him!

    He has said in interviews that he is ‘half Buddhist, half Marxist’. He’d happily accept being on the Chinese payroll if it guaranteed him power, but there would be uproar from his people because he’s made a career out of being a refugee in exile and also the Chinese don’t trust him because he is duplicitous – signing sovereignty of Tibet over to them and then reneging on the deal when he didn’t get what he wanted. No wonder the Chinese accuse him of being ‘splittist’ because he welched on the deal. It all makes so much more sense now after having read the book.
