International Shugden Community Statement

Dalai Lama – The Worst Dictator in this Modern Day

Through this information we are telling the Dalai Lama to stop lying, stop harming millions of people, stop abusing basic human rights, and stop religious discrimination.

For his own selfish political gain the Dalai Lama has falsely banned the worship of the enlightened deity called Dorje Shugden; he has forcefully removed all Tibetan Shugden practitioners from their own Tibetan communities and he is continually performing various actions to expel all other Shugden practitioners from Buddhist communities throughout the world. The wrong reasons that he has publicly given for these actions are that Shugden:

1) Harms his life
2) Harms Tibetan people
3) Harms Tibetan independence.

He has not given one single valid reason to prove that Shugden harms his life, harms Tibetan people, or harms Tibetan independence. It is clear he is lying. Through checking carefully and honestly everybody can understand that he is lying.

How are people suffering from the crazy actions of this false Dalai Lama?

While the Dalai Lama enjoys a luxurious life for himself, making huge amounts of money through using Buddha’s teachings, he causes millions of people to suffer by creating division between them and destroying their harmony and peaceful life. Because of their blind faith or extreme religious views people believe the Dalai Lama’s harmful words without investigation, and sincerely follow his misleading guidance. As a result non-Shugden practitioners have become extremely angry with Shugden practitioners. They have forcefully expelled Shugden practitioners from Tibetan society, using public humiliation, provocation, intimidation and threats, including dismissing them from their jobs, refusing them basic services and publicly spreading lies about them.

The Dalai Lama is an ordained Buddhist monk. Buddha said that ordained people should never harm a single living being or cause anyone suffering, but the Dalai Lama has harmed and is continuing to harm millions of innocent people by causing them completely unnecessary suffering, fear and danger. He is acting in direct contradiction to Buddha’s teachings and is publicly showing great disrespect to Buddha and Buddhism. In one month alone, February 2008, he expelled 900 innocent Shugden monks from the Tibetan community. All of these monks were very poor, and they lost everything, including care and support for their daily lives received from their relatives, friends and community. They had no idea
where they should go or who would support and help them, finding themselves refugees for a second time. In truth this kind of suffering pervades Tibetan communities throughout the world, and only the Dalai Lama himself has the power to solve this problem. Through checking carefully and honestly everybody can understand that the actions of this false Dalai Lama go directly against the law of basic human rights.

To liberate millions of innocent people from this endless suffering we request everyone throughout the world, including world leaders, to ask the Dalai Lama to accept the following four points:

  1. To allow anyone who wishes to practice Dorje Shugden the freedom to do so
  2. To stop completely the discrimination against Shugden practitioners
  3. To allow all Shugden monks and nuns who have been expelled to return to their monasteries and nunneries, and to receive the same material and spiritual rights as non-Shugden practitioners
  4. To write to Tibetan communities throughout the world telling them that they should apply practically the above three points.
