We would like to offer the following two pieces of information with regard to the blog in the Huffington Post written by the Tibetan, Tenzin Dorjee.
(1) Given the string of similar and baseless articles appearing only in the Huffington Post, it is clear to us that this project of misinformation is created by Robert Thurman. Robert Thurman is a close friend of the Dalai Lama, the President and co-founder of Tibet House and a long time contributing writer for the Huffington Post. Sadly, Tenzin Dorjee is simply acting as the dog of Robert Thurman.
(2) The information presented in this blog is completely wrong, and we can only conclude that these are malicious lies.
Therefore, with this statement and through our demonstrations the International Shugden Community is publicly telling the Dalai Lama, Robert Thurman and the Tibetans who support them to “Stop Lying.” The Shugden Community has done this now for over 20 years, and yet Robert Thurman still does not understand - he is obviously a very ignorant man.
The International Shugden Community
Supporters of the False Dalai Lama have prevented loyal followers of Domo Geshe Rinpoche who practise Dorje Shugden from entering Gaden Chöling monastery in Darjeeling to perform the 49th day death ceremony for the caretaker who cherished the monastery for decades.
So-called “Buddhists”, following the False Dalai Lama and CTA’s incitements to discrimination and hatred against their own countrymen, have gone so far as to prevent prayers being said for a faithful monk’s fortunate rebirth. This is a terrible example of the schism the ban on Dorje Shugden practice is causing within the Tibetan exiled community.
This letter was received yesterday (June 17th 2014) by a nun at a Kadampa Buddhist Center in California. It appears to have been sent from Oakland, CA, by four people with Tibetan names representing “The United Front of the Tibetan People”. It contains a clear incitement to violent action against “traitor Tibetans” and “foreign Dolgyal people” - people who have dared to stand up to and criticise the Dalai Lama and Central Tibetan Administration: “we must take strong and physical action against them” and “teach them lesson”.
Those threatened in the letter include the 34 Tibetans listed by the CTA on its website as “Dolgyal” protestors, as well as other Tibetan and western Shugden practitioners around the world. These people are innocent of any crime: all they have done is exercise their basic human right to free speech and their freedom of belief.
On May 21 the following appeared on the official website of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA)
This information provided by the Dalai Lama is clearly an incitement to commit acts of violence against these twenty Tibetans.
We would like to publicly state that if any harm comes to any of these people the Dalai Lama will be held personally responsible.
The Dalai Lama has caused this kind of harm many times in the past, but this time the world is watching!
