    Very good!It makes the book twice as good to read with the video

  • Thomas Canada

    Keep up all the good work
    while also remembering to give yourself peace of mind by contemplating
    that mere ‘dream-like’ nature of things.

  • Thomas Canada

    Amazon is back ordered on the Great Deception.Either alot of people are buying the book or the Dalia Lama is buying the lots and is burning them on his altar!
    Great Work will be acknowledged.

    “If His Holiness is merely a politician that is destroying Dharma & creating “schism” in the Sangha without any reason,

    ” do you think all Dharma Protectors, especially Dorje Shugden who has vowed to especially protect the teachings of Je Tsongkhapa would allow him to continue to destroy Tibetan Buddhism’s image and the Dharma?”

    Which is what the Protector said about the Dalia Lama more or less he said,’Stop now and everything will be fine. Otherwise you have been warned and expect retribution”

    Which is why we are bringing him down.
    I wonder what the Panchen Lama thinks about the Dalia Lama returning home. I guess it was just a cosmic ruse to turn the Panchen Lama into Chinese authorities instead of smuggling him out of Lhasa once it was known where he reincarnated.

    One can spin the Dalia Lama anyway one cares to do!
    I do not believe for one second that this man is so altruistic as to be a sacrificial lamb burnt on the altar to salvage Mahayanna Buddhism.
    I do not believe that Tromo Geshe Rinpoche thanked me for defending his lineage, because it is part of a cosmic ploy to save Mahayanna Buddhism and I participate as an unknowing fool what it is that I say and do to defend the dharma from this evil incarnation of delusions.

    I do not believe the Dalia Lama is the incarnation of anything other than trouble for everyone. All the negative attributes that he ascribes to Dorje Shugden are nothing more than his own projection of his own guilt and schemes to control others as his own slaves and serfs.
    I can see the temptation to see all of this as Obiwan and Darth Vader saddleing up with Yoda to hold hands on the other side and encourage Luke to carry on as they are always with him.
    People have died and been tortured for this cosmic scheme that Lord Shugden is a Boogey man!
    All of the suffering would be just a joke and the tears and lives lost would mean nothing.
    Other than to make certain Mahayann Buddhism survive is beyond the pail of believability.
    What Buddha would hatch such a plot? Not one that I care to know.
    Big Pictures do not look so grand, when it is your own life that is on the line.

    This was a Power Grab, plain and simple and worship a dietiety that says he is a God, rather than just a War Lord is too bizarre. Not unlike the Plantagent and Tudors. One stole the throne from the Ordained One.

    Which is completly why I rely on the Bill Of Rights to Protect the Dharma and not a Theocratic Crab Shell that hides and protects itself with a hard shell and claws with very small eyes that need antennaes just to turn in circles to defend it’s thick skin.
    Dalia Lama and Ammans have a lot in common. Neither believes that the common man can understand and need to led around like a yak with a ring in it’s nose.Religion and Politics do not mix. He however enjoys it. In Lhasa it seemed that once the Royalist had nothing else to do, but butt into eveyone’s else business.Louis the 14th’s Court had nothing on intrigue over the Tibetan Aristocrats. Like Republicans, a real pain in the ass.

    I take refuge in Universal Freedoms and Rights that allows anyone to tell another to get off, will ya?
    If Dalia were liberated, he would have talked to us by now. He is afraid that his legacy is ‘Going South’.

    I love Dorje Shugden and I love his hat.
    We did not have much to go on in 1956 and I was eight, except for a Smokey The Bear,Teddy Bear.
    A Forest Ranger with a hat just like the Protectors,he carried a shovel and said, “Only you can prevent Forest Fires.

    I loved that Bear very much.
    He taught me to love the Forest,
    he wore a hat that had authority.
    Smokey taught me to put out fires,
    Like the one we fight today.

    This immense flame scorches the earth,
    The Dharma proceeds unhindered,
    by insignificant attempts to put it out,
    Is immeasurably insignificant.

    As a fire sweeps through the underbrush to clear out the old,
    new seeds and sprouts emmerge with new blooms.
    So too the dharma starts anew with each one of us,
    renewing ourselves within the purifying blaze,
    that burns brightly within each and everyone of us.
    I loved Smokey The Bear!
    He was always there.
    I love the Protector!
    He is always here.

    “Developing wisdom and compassion, and cherishing others, is the true meaning of life. If we apply this ancient Buddhist wisdom in our daily lives and make a pledge to make at least one person happy each day in 2010, we will immediately see the difference it can make to our own and others lives.”

    The Dalia Lama, like Captain Kidd, treads a fine line between legal and illegal on the High Seas.
    The Great Ocean Of Wisdom, moral or immoral?
    The Dalia Lama was and has always been a political title.
    The Ocean Of Wisdom trickles down to size as the Buddha of the Lower Heavens, a political realm now gone amuck without the balance of the True Spiritual Power, The Panchen Lama!
    Maybe this why he is ill?
    He has no balance by himself and narcissism has prevailed upon his tortured mind for killing as Golem, he forgets.
    Perhaps, if he just says, Yes! to whatever the Chinese request and go home to Lhasa would be a fairy tale end to a life spent in exile. It might be timely to leave the Western scene, before the New Delhi Courts Rule and end your legacy of untainted lives.
    You are as we, human.
    Admit your transgressions and come to your senses now, before it is too late. Bodichitta is stronger than karma.
    Lord Shugden unfettered with human clutter radiates the essence of what lies within and protects us.
    Drop your ruse and come true. Go home to Lhasa and assume your Temple Mantles. The Panchen Lama calls you home, your work is done.
    Regain your integrity, even after centuries,no never mind. Shugden Prevails and over the next few decades, all will feel the love we share with one another from inside our minds and heart, united forever, peace prevails and heart soar forever.

    excerpt from:
    Letter to Robert A. F. Thurman by Shamar Rinpoche

    “When I see the type of response you wrote in the case of Lea Terhune, I am concerned that you may one day go so far as to discourage students and speakers who have ever critiqued H.H. Dalai Lama or the TGIE, and further, even discourage or block the careers of anyone who is friends with any such people. Buddhists should not violate the freedom of religion and discriminate against others.”

    “In a country like the United States, which prides itself on democracy and freedom, it is a shame that a tradition like Buddhism can be used to suppress and limit people.”

    Ode to Bob the Nazi!

  • Thomas Canada

    “The Dalai Lama needs to say publicly, what evidence he has for saying, that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit, who is harming Tibetan independence and his life.

    Just saying Dorje Shugden is bad is not enough.”

  • Thomas Canada

    Whoever fights against the Shugden spirit defends religious freedom. I compare this definitely to the Nazis in Germany. Whoever fights them, defends human rights, since the freedom of Nazis is not freedom. — The 14th Dalai Lama1

    Then why did this 14th Dalia Lama from a Regiment of Tibetans into a Nazi Battalion designed to attack ALLIED Forces in India during WWll?

    The ordacity to call Solid American’s Nazis, when it was he that was enfatuated with Military Machines and entertained Nazi SS Officiers for most of the War?

  • Kate Walker

    There are people who believe HH Dalai Lama is Chenrezig himself. There are others who think he is an ordinary being, and not a very enlightened one at that.

    Why don’t we just respect each other’s views and not judge or be critical or each other. Whether people respect our faith in Dorje Shugden or not, we do not have to react in the same negative manner, otherwise we are just as bad as them and represent our holy Protector badly.

    I believe in KARMA. Whatever is the truth or not – Karma will be the ultimate judge.

    Let’s not create more negative karma for ourselves by having negative views.

    Humbly…

  • Thomas Canada

    He can be Chenrezig in the Temples.
    He cannot be a God King and Rule Over Others.
    People can see or not what it is we are talking about.
    However, we must reveal the truth as we see it to all.
    If it sounds harsh, well it is, but we are not the ones who are Lording it Over Others.
    Because people have their egos bruised with facts and truths does not make us responsible.
    All of Us are in charge of ourselves and to hold on to a fantasy does not bode well for themselves.
    It hurts to be fooled and deceived as with a Lover. He has betrayed all the Love we Held until he became somethin else due becoming ennamored with the West. Other monks fell down as well, he is not alone in this narcissism.

  • Thomas Canada

    I call it ignorance first of all that some cleave to the Dalia Lama or not.
    I say this because I think to a large degree we in the West do not comprehend the degree of complexities that living in a theocratic dictatorship for over 400 years has had on any Tibetan.
    I do not think even some of these lamas and monks understand, becaue they have never actually lived in a democracy appreciate their Rights, even though they live in the shawdows of democracies. They do not really practice it.
    Also keep in mind that there are Dorje Shugden Lamas and Monks, Nuns inside of Tibet, who practice freely.
    It is the Refugees that are as in a Concentration Camp with Yellow Cards like the Jewish Star, causes one to be suspect, afterall the TGIE is not an actual govenment and certainly not a country. They left that over fifty years ago. Will they go back, I think so.
    Wait until the Monasteries in Lhasa and elsewhere go online. Maybe it will be like Radio Free America and broadcast actual facts as to what is going on.
    I do not care what the Dalia Lama does as long as he leaves others alone. Which he is not. So, I and others will persist to deal with the form he has assumed to manifest is not his best and change him, tame him and bring him back into the herd. Let him fuss and let him do what he wants. But he is wrong and until he recants, he will know no peace, as he knows what he does is against the Dharma. He cannot exclude Lord Shugden from the retinue that fills the space of infinite univeres.
    Like his brother, he is headstrong and needs to be led back into practicing the dharma and leaving the Practicioners alone.
    As a Yak with a ring in his nose. I think the Chinese and Tibetans understand one another much better and we would be best served to leave this matter alone and focus on Spreading The Dharma and making Lord Dorje Shugden be known, that it is he that it is he, who is the “Supreme King Protector of The Dharma”.
    Protect the Lineage, as Tromo Geshe Rimpoche said.

    Seeds propigate themselves.
    Like the Dharma, it finds root in fertile soil , bathed in Sunlight and refreshed with afternoon rains.
    We find nourishment with our Lamas, who know what we need like a plant needs soil, sun and water.
    With tender care the seed becomes something that can propigate itself and naturally as practicing the dharma. Say yes! and see what changes it can bring to trust in words spoken so long ago ring true today.
    Because afterall, we are human, even after thousands of years. We carry on to find that Enlightenment to bring other along until no one is left in the darkness.
    We have made progress and Universal Rights Stand For Everyone.
    Not the case in Buddha’s time, no slack unless you dropped out to consider the possibilities of the Dharma as everyday life now reaches the Land of The Red Men, as Buddha foretold.
    The Great Wheel of the Dharma turns to the West.
    Now what do we do with it, is up to us.
    Cherish and Protect Come to Mind!

  • Thomas Canada

    Religion and Politics?
    Have they never heard of seperationof church and state?
    Apparently not as they carry on like Al Capone,doing business as usual. They keep the coin and keep them scared and stupid and poor is their solution.
    Small wonder or no wonder at all that the Western Shugden Society is more loathesome and to be feared more than the People’s Republic of China is quite and honor. Even if they do threaten to eradicate us, let them try, this not the medieval age and he is not the Boss.

    “Learning from history, as long as the religion and politics of the Tibetan people exists, each Tibetan should pledge that he or she will never attend any teachings or establish any spiritual bond with any Tibetan spiritual master or reincarnate lama who is related to Dorje Shugden.

    H. Since books, documents, newsletter and whatever other literature disseminated by Mr. Athar and the so-called Dorje Shugden Devotees’ Charitable and Religious Society are nothing other than the ideology and activity of Communist China, whoever has any such literature, should burn them. [book-burning and people-‘burning’ usually follow one another – note the Cultural Revolution and Holocaust] “From now on, no Tibetan will be allowed to subscribe to, purchase or read any of the above books and pamphlets. Nor should they be allowed to subscribe to, purchase or read any issue of the Drangden (“The Truth”) newspaper, Nyanchen Thanglha newspaper. If they arrive by mail, they must be returned to the sender.”

    I found this from dorjeshugden.com so I’m reposting this. Hope you find it as thought provoking as i did.

    CONTEMPLATE THIS…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Invite them, teach them, slowly and give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the practice assuming it is ‘wrong’. Wouldn’t that be a Buddhistic approach to all ‘wrong-doers’? Actually Dorje Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be a better and more true to the spirit of Buddhism to be accepting? So those reading this website who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those who are practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.

    Many beings who have said or thought negativities against this protector will regret and see the benefits and enlightened nature of Lord Dorje Shugden, King of the manifested deities who resides simultaneously in the Three Worlds…After all, if H.H. the Dalai Lama can say that his guru Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche is wrong in this practice, then he leaves the door wide open that His Holiness Himself can be wrong also. What would make His Holiness right and His Guru wrong?? If His guru can be wrong, then disciples of the Dalai Lama can say that the Dalai Lama is wrong also. If we choose that view, it becomes messy. So we have to think that outwardly His Holiness puts his ‘reputation’ on the line to speak out ‘against’ Dorje Shugden in His skillful means to not create fear in the hearts of sectarian people who use the holy lineages of Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug against each other. As the destruction of any lineage or deterioration would set the example for other lineages. They are somehow interdependent.

    We at this website respect His Holiness the Dalai Lama from the depths of our hearts and at the same time follow our golden vajra commands of our lamas we met previous to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The commitments of Dorje Shugden we have received from our root and lineage lamas prior to His Holiness must be upheld also. All those great lamas who are also the lineage lamas of His Holiness cannot be wrong. If they are, then the other practices, lineages, initiations, transmissions passed to His Holiness would be ‘stained’ by the practice of Dorje Shugden also?

    So for example, His Holiness kindly confers the Kalacakra many times throughout the world. He has received this lineage from Kyabje Ling Rinpoche. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche’s root lama is Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche Jetsun Dechen Nyingpo recognized as the emanation of Heruka Cakrasamvara. Every great Gelugpa lama is directly or indirectly connected to this great being. Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche practised Dorje Shugden throughout his holy life. So if his practice is wrong, then he would be a wrong lineage lama to Kyabje Ling Rinpoche. If that is wrong, then His Holiness is passing practices that are so called ‘impure’ to many today. That is impossible. His Holiness is definitely pure as well as His lineage lamas, for example Kyabje Pabongkha Rinpoche. Even His Holiness could not override any master of any school of Buddhism or any sect, otherwise His Holiness would put Himself in the position of being eventually overridden also. Who would want to do that? All the many lineage masters who practiced Gyelchen Dorje Shugden in their previous incarnations are back and studying/teaching again. Many have been recognized by the oracle of Dorje Shugden and His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. So why are they back?? Shouldn’t they have taken unfortunate rebirths??

    Below is a beautiful prayer to the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden as composed by H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama in the mid 70’s..His Holiness at that time and now is of the same mindstream, free of mistakes as He is the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. Those of you who have tremendous obstacles, fearful situations, desperate predicaments, financial woes that hinder your dharma growth and practice should engage in the tremendously quick and efficacious practice of Dorje Shugden. It must be combined with pure Guru devotion, consistent practice of one’s yidam, holding one’s vows and words of honor, no harm should be done to others, respect of all lineages and lineage lamas, teachers and masters. Forgive and forbear those who show enmity and disdain. For that would please the holy mind of the Dharmaphala King of the Three Lokas, Gyelchen Dorje Shugden. Even if one has no confirmed practice, lama or vows, still with good motivation, if one propitiates this holy protector, one can see the benefits. Like anything with time, the help, and mystical intervention of this supreme being will be felt more and more obvious. Especially if one is on the path of the cultivation of Lam Rim realizations. Put your energies not into worry, despair, depression, unnecessary wastage of time, but channel it into the modernly adapted yet supreme practice of this protector.

    MELODY OF THE UNCEASING VAJRA

    A Propitiation of Mighty Gyalchen Dorje Shugden,
    Protector of Conqueror Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings

    By the Supreme Victor, the Great 14th Dalai Lama

    HUM

    Glory of the wisdom, compassion and power of infinite Buddhas
    Miraculously powerful protector of Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings
    Arisen as a lord of all wrathful worldly hosts
    Come from the abodes of Tushita, Kechara, and so forth!

    Prostrating with devotion of body, speech, and mind
    I confess all mistakes and faults in which
    Out of delusion, I have contradicted your holy mind:
    Accept with forbearance and show your smiling face!

    Arising from the sport of non-dual bliss and void
    Are offerings and torma of flesh and blood heaped like a mountain
    First portions of milk, yogurt, beer and tea swirling like the ocean

    Auspicious signs and substances and various animals
    Peaceful and wrathful ornaments, enemy-destroying weapons and armor
    Amassed samaya substances, outer, inner, and secret, without exception!

    Having fulfilled your heart commitment and purified degeneration
    By making these actually arranged and visualized offerings
    Increase Lozang the Victorious One’s Teachings
    And the life span and activities of the Teachings’ upholders!
    Further the happiness of beings in the Gaden [Podrang] dominion!

    Especially pacify all harm to us, the yogis and entourages
    That arises because of previous karma and immediate conditions
    And spontaneously accomplish, just as we wish
    All good things, both spiritual and temporal!

    Grind to dust without remainder
    Enemy hordes that think and act perversely
    Towards the teachings and lay and ordained people
    With potent, accurate, powerful great vajra fire!

    Especially, cause the saffron-clad community of Dungkar Monastery
    Brightly beautiful in bonds of pure morality
    To soar the path of immortal liberation
    On unified wings of Sutra and Tantra!

    In brief, we enthrone you, O Deity, as the supreme
    Collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities!
    From densely gathered clouds of the four activities
    Pour down a cool rain of the two siddhis!

    This, A Propitiation of Mighty Gyalchen Dorje Shugden, Protector of Conqueror Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s Teachings, entitled Melody of the Unceasing Vajra ’s composition was urged, not only by the vajra prophecy of the great emanated Dharmapala himself, but also on behalf of the general community by the master of the Dratsang and all of its officers, with offerings. Accordingly, the one called Holder Of The White Lotus, Bearer of the Buddhadharma, Ngawang Losang Tenzin Gyatso Sisum Wangyur Tsungpa Mepa De composed it at Dungkar Monastery with spontaneous auspiciousness.
    All benefit and bliss! Siddhi Rastu

    Domo Geshe Rinpoche, at whose Dunkar Monastery His Holiness composed these inspiring verses, was one of the greatest Mahasiddhas in Tibetan history. A greater example of saintliness and, mind you, non-sectarian compassion would be hard to find. Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang said of him, “We are exactly the same”, and Domo Geshe put his Monasteries in Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s care before he passed on. The 13 th Dalai Lama praised him as Je Tsongkhapa incarnate. Both the 13 th and the 14 th Dalai Lama praised Dungkar Monastery’s oracle, through which they obtained very valuable advice in difficult times.
    This prayer shows beyond the shadow of a doubt the enlightened origin and the “holy mind” of the King Protector as seen by His Holiness. No “ghost” can come from Tushita and Kechara, Maitreya and Vajrayogini’s pureland. No “ghost” can cause you to “soar the path of immortal liberation on unified wings of Sutra and Tantra”!

    Seeing this, we think it is safe to conclude what this conflict is not about. And who knows, maybe it is not a conflict at all, except in our conflict-hungry minds that can’t stand the notion of interdependence and cause and effect?

    China’s Panchen Lama voted VP of state Buddhism body: report
    (AFP)

    BEIJING — China’s controversial choice as the second highest Tibetan spiritual figure, the 19-year-old Panchen Lama, was voted vice president of the nation’s Buddhist Association Wednesday, state media reported.

    The appointment comes just days after negotiations on the future of Tibet between Chinese Communist party officials and envoys of the region’s exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, which failed to make any headway.

    The Panchen Lama, addressing the closing ceremony of the association’s national conference, said he would “uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China,” the official Xinhua news agency reported.

    He added he would “adhere to socialism, safeguard national unification, strengthen ethnic unity and expand Buddhist exchanges, on the basis of adherence to the law and love for the nation and Buddhism,” the report said.

    The Buddhist Association of China is the state-run supervisory body for the religion.

    Gyaincain Norbu was enthroned as the 11th Panchen Lama in a 1995 ceremony overseen by the Communist Party, which had rejected a boy selected by the Dalai Lama.

    The exiled spiritual leader’s choice, Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, has disappeared from public view and is believed to have been under a form of house arrest ever since.

    Experts say the Panchen Lama, who is not widely accepted as a spiritual leader by Tibetans, is increasingly being used by Beijing as a tool in its propaganda offensive against the Dalai Lama.

    China accuses the Dalai Lama of seeking independence for his Himalayan homeland, but the Buddhist monk rejects the claim, saying he is just looking for meaningful autonomy for Tibet under Chinese rule.
    According to Xinhua, the Panchen Lama Wednesday vowed to contribute to “the blueprint of the compatible development of Tibetan Buddhism and socialism.”
