The Dalai Lama and Shoko Asahara

The Dalai Lama befriended, endorsed and supported Shoko Asahara’s dangerous Aum cult. The cult developed deadly sarin gas and released it on the Tokyo subway station.

Most likely the half blind guru… would never have been able to build up his cult empire without the Dalai Lama’s support. What is certain is that his rapid rise from charlatan and petty criminal to Japanese Uber-Guru in so few years would not have happened nearly so hassle-free. – Focus Magazine

Asahara donated over $2 million to the Nobel prize-winner for the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism and culture in an apparent attempt to win his favour and endorsement. – Sydney Morning Herald
