May/June 2008 in brief


Reports are coming through that:

  • Agents of the Dalai Lama are trying to destroy Palgyeling Monastery in Nepal.
  • Mobs supportive of the Dalai Lama's ban burnt down the house and hotel of Tenzing Choegyal (Zongkar Choede) in New Delhi last Thursday.
  • A doctor who was helping Dorje Shugden practitioners was attacked yesterday at a clinic in a Tibetan settlement (Ooti) that was giving out medicines for tuberculosis.
  • The Dalai Lama's sister Pema is in Paris starting the forced signature campaign of Tibetans in France.
  • The forced signature campaign is being arranged for Madison, US, in July 2008.

Meanwhile, the Dalai Lama has been in England talking about tolerance, religious harmony and the need for dialog with one's enemies. He has still refused every single request to discuss the unlawful ban on the worship of Dorje Shugden.

Short extract from a transcript of the video recordings (watch the videos to see the whole story)


Commentator: Desperate because of a conflict with the Dalai Lama. They grant us entry into the temple. At the center of the conflict the protector deity Dorje Shugden. A very popular Deity who is called upon to increase the power of meditation. He is the patron deity of Tibet. He has been worshipped for centuries. Nothing would be more devastating to the monks than having to break the tradition but this is precisely what the Dalai Lama has been vehemently demanding for two years. He keeps proclaiming that worshipping Dorje Shugden harms the cause of Tibet and that it endangers his own life. Neither of these points can be comprehended by the monks, who are well-trained in logic.


An unusual scene, inconceivable only a few years ago. Monks demonstrate against the government of the Dalai Lama. (speaking Tibetan)


This man was present at the demonstration. Geshe Phuntsog Tsultrim is 64 years old and tells us that he is going through the saddest moments of his life.


"We had asked our teachers to initiate us into the practice of this Deity. Now we either have to act against the words of these great masters or disregard the Dalai Lama's ban. I deeply regret that I could have not died a few years ago, before this ban."


(Detailed footage of the whole situation is available on the videos. Please see for yourself.)


Unfortunately, there is plenty more of all this to come if the Dalai Lama doesn't lift the ban and persecution.
