Mixing Religion and Politics & The History and Institution of the Dalai Lamas

The following appendices present a deeper examination of the points raised in the first five chapters. They explain the Tibetan theocratic system of government, and present a history of the Dalai Lamas, in particular the present Dalai Lama’s political views and failures. This gives us the context in which to understand his ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden as another example of a dismal record of deceit and hidden scandals.
