The Dalai Lama’s Secret Army

The latest wikileaks revelations show that the Dalai Lama, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, actually had a secretThe Dalai Lama's secret army army – called Establishment 22 – being supplied with fresh recruits from the orphans raised at the Tibetan Children’s Village Schools. At the request of Indira Gandhi and with the consent of the Dalai Lama, this army was involved in armed conflict against Pakistan in 1971.

Why, then, is the Dalai Lama famous for his ‘non-violence’ approach to the China/Tibet struggle?  Why was he awarded the Nobel Peace Prize when there were Tibetan Guerrila freedom fighters engaged in active combat with China, and Establishment 22 fighting a war, both with the full knowledge and support of the Dalai Lama?

US cables show that the Tibetan Government in Exile regarded Establishment 22 as their ‘paramilitary arm’.  How, then, is the Tibetan Government in Exile any different from the Irish Republican political party Sinn Fein who also had a paramilitary arm called the IRA?  The main difference is that it was public knowledge that there was a link between Sinn Fein and the IRA whereas until now, the Tibetan resistance fighters, called Chushi Gangdruk and Establishment 22 have been hidden.

From this it can be seen that the Dalai Lama’s endorsement of non-violence is mere words. The world is being deceived into believing that he is an advocate of non-violence, or ahimsa, through his public speeches while the evidence shows that he is actually supporting armed conflict.

  1. I would like to suggest that you get a twitter feed set up that is tied to your blog. That way it will be easy for everyone interested in your blog to follow the good work you do here. Go to and enter this link as the rss feed: Then it’s automatic. If you get it set up send a message @goldenmala so I can follow you and retweet your posts.

  2. I would like to point out that there’s a difference between the Dalai Lama and his followers. His administration was never fully in agreement with his point of view I think, so I’m not suprised that there was an army. I am still convinced though that the Dalai Lama was not behind this in any way and sincerely believes – and acts upon, always – the things he says en believes.

    I think you are criticizing the wrong side here.

    We should be criticizing states like China, and more importantly and nearer to home, the USA. They are seriously abusing their power for ideals that are far lower than those of, for instance, the Dalai Lama.

    Dear critikaster,

    Thanks for your comments. The point of the article is to show that, even though the Dalai Lama espouses non-violence, he is involved in violence. For example, he collaborated with the CIA (as this series of articles shows, the Dalai Lama requested military assistance:
    It’s a six part article, and you can drawn your own conclusions). He must also, as head of the Tibetan Government in Exile, have known about Establishment 22 and condoned that use of violence. Of course there are bigger offenders, such as China and the USA, but you expect governments to be deceptive: the point is that the Dalai Lama is wearing the robes of a Tibetan monk but secretly encouraging Tibetans to be involved in armed conflict. The Dalai Lama is not what he appears to be, even though he is widely believed to be morally upright and it’s important for people to know the truth.

  3. ” The president also mentions that he was in charge of two wars when he received the peace prize in the first place. mention magnifiers, burning glasses (because holding them in the sun over a piece of parchment or cloth would set it on fire), and magnifying glasses. “As always,
    there are the usual ‘nominees’ and some newcomers, some famous and some
    unknowns, hailing from the four corners of the world.
