The Tibetan Government in Exile’s policy of spiritual apartheid

In a report entitled World Media Investigates….Dalai Lama soon to be taken to court by newkadampabuddhism, the following useful list of prohibitions and accusations against Dorje Shugden practitioners is given.  If you are a Dorje Shugden practitioner, according to resolutions passed by the Tibetan Government in Exile (TGIE):

You cannot work in any part of the Government (TGIE)

You cannot work in any part of the Health Service           

You are not allowed in the Tibetan Youth association

You are not allowed in the Womens association              

You are not allowed to remain in many monasteries

In those monasteries you can stay in you are totally segregated for example by a dividing wall, which also prevents you eating with others

You cannot be a judge or juror

Your goods are not bought at marketplaces                   

You are not welcome in many shops

You are not welcome in many restaurants                        

Pictures of you are often put up in public accusing you of receiving funding from China

Whenever you argue or try to stand up for your rights you are accused of being in league with China

Just because of your religion you are accused of wishing to harm the Dalai Lama

Just because of your religion you are accused of harming the Tibetan cause

As a group, Shugden practitioners are accused of being terrorists without evidence or trial

As a group, Shugden practitioners are accused of being murderers without evidence or trial

This is totally unacceptable.  How can the Dalai Lama and his ‘government’ (which, fortunately, is not recognized by legitimate governments on this planet) get away with such discrimination?  Furthermore, how can they claim to be upholding Buddhism when they are blatantly acting against Buddha’s teachings on love and compassion?

No democratic, civilized and peace loving society would allow this.

  1. Dear Lineageholder:

    You say that

    “No democratic, civilized and peace loving society would allow this.”

    But they do, unfortunately they do. But of course, are they truly democratic, civilized and peace loving?

    It would be interesting to ask people why they think they allow the Dalai Lama to go on with this.
