A Great Deception: The Ruling Lamas` Policies

£3.99

Product description

"A Great Deception

The Dalai Lama wishes to ban Shugden worship in general; and in particular to remove Tibetan Shugden worshippers from their Tibetan communities, and Western Shugden worshippers from the international Buddhist community. Since 1996 the Tibetan exile government has continually applied effort to fulfil these wishes. In February 2008 alone, 900 monks who are Shugden practitioners were expelled from their monastery.

The Tibetan exile government put the Dalai Lama`s wishes into practice directly in India, and in the same way the Dalai Lama`s official representative in each country throughout the world has directly and practically followed the orders of the exile government. These representatives have organised vigilante groups in their respective regions and directly prevailed upon such groups to defame, threaten and sometimes physically harm Shugden practitioners. In this way many Shugden Temples have been closed and shrines destroyed, individual Shugden practitioner`s houses have been burned down, practitioners have been brutally beaten, and children have been banned from their schools. Tibetan Shugden practitioners are repeatedly accused of being the Tibetan national enemy and ostracised from their communities.

This inhumane treatment directly violates basic human rights and principles of democratic law, but nevertheless precedes every Tibetan community whether in the East or West.

The Purpose of this book is to archive the following four aims;

- To liberate millions of innocent practitioners of the Buddhist Deity Dorje Shugden and their families from suffering
- To restore peace and harmony between Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners
- To re-establish the common spiritual activities of Shugden and non-Shugden practitioners.
- To free Buddhism from political pollution."

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear.
