Who is the Dalai Lama, Really?

THE Dalai Lama's Campaign of Persecution: the forgotten photo album 1959. While letting the world believe he is only inter- ested in a non-violent solution to China's unwel- come invasion of Tibet, the Dalai Lama quietly accepts financial and military support from the CIA for two decades. He personally receives a $180,000 per year stipend. Here he is posing with armed Tibetan troops to show his support.

Dalai Lama's portrait in parliament 1996. The Dalai Lama bans a centuries-old religious practice, the worship of Dorje Shugden, for rea- sons that are essentially political. The Tibetan partiament-in-exile, in accordance with his wishes, changes the constitution so that Dorje Shugden practitioners cannot hold public office. Read more: Search "Shugden constitution" 1999. While he wins fans in the West with a warm smile, he has no smiles for the Dorje Shugden practitioners back home who oppose the ban. To them, he says bluntly: 1999. "There will be no change in my stand. I will never revoke the ban. You are right. It will be like the Cultural Revo- lution. If those who do not accept the ban do not listen to my words, the sit- uation will grow worse for them. You sit and watch. It will grow only worse In a face-to-face meeting with govern- ment officials, Shugden Society mem- bers plead their case, saying they are doing nothing wrong. Notes from the meeting say officials responded with: "What you say is true, but since the ban comes from His Holiness, we are put into a very difficult situation. H.H. the Dalai Lama is taking a rock-like stand, and if you also take an equally rigid stand, we [the exile gov- ernment] are caught helpless in between." for them." 1999 speech to monks at Trijang Labrang, residence of the Dalai Lama's own tutor 18 Years Later... Religious discrimination is still in full-force. 2008.

On Dec. 27, 2013, 84 year-old Gen Chonze was brutally attacked by masked, gloved assailants. Gen Chonze is an assistant of a well-known Dorje Shugden practitioner, one who had politely refused the Dalai Lama's requests to abandon Shugden practice a few months earlier. Gen Chonze is not the first Dorje Shugden practitioner to be attacked in this manner. Unless the Dalai Lama lifts the ban, he is also unlikely to be the last. Don't support religious discrimination. Dalai Lama, please, stop lying. FALSEDALAILAMA.COM
