anti-Buddhist?

 
 
WELCOME MESSAGE

Buddhism is beautiful. To some, Buddhism is a deeply spiritual and endless journey, to others a profound religion, and to others a science of the mind. Buddhism is all these things and much more.

Compassion and wisdom are Buddhism's inspiration and purpose - love, happiness and relieving suffering have guided the lives and destiny of practicing Buddhists everywhere.

From Shakyamuni in India twenty five hundred years ago to Bodhidharma in China fifteen hundred years ago to Tsongkhapa in Tibet six hundred years ago, the ideals of Buddhism have inspired probably over a billion of us.

According to the cosmology of Buddhism we are all connected. What affects each of us affects all of us. What we do during our lives generates karma, which helps guide our individual and collective happiness in this life and in our future lives. We live and evolve in a profoundly connected universe.

The ultimate purpose of all of our lives is to help others. Through our compassion we increase happiness and reduce suffering so that all of us will realize our invevitable destiny, enlightenment, as soon as possible.

Among many, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, exiled from his homeland in Tibet by the Chinese Government in 1959, now 78, travels the world spreading Buddhism and the holiness of compassion, searching for spiritual autonomy in Tibet and promoting religious harmony among the various schools of Tibetan Buddhism - noble causes, and in 1989 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

May love and compassion prevail.

 
 

 

HOWEVER, BUDDHISM IS UNDER ATTACK

...THIS IS NOT THE BEAUTY OF BUDDHISM OR COMPASSION...
To those watching the news or attending a precious speaking engagement of The Dalai Lama, this is what they see. NKT militants raising their fists and yelling about their selfishly egocentric and ugly unilateral dominance-seeking war with The Dalai Lama. Armed with web sites, press releases, protest caravans, and its ultra ego, the Western Shugden Society, NKT's multi-media power-hungry PR machine 'chants' that The Dalai Lama is evil and a liar. For its ego gratification NKT is defiling Buddhism with its worldwide assault.

Crossing a remarkable line, the NKT cult headquartered in England has deployed a corporate web site abusing 8 other Buddhists (casting them also as evil and liars), www.newkadampatruth.org. NKT, separated from all other forms of Buddhism, falsely claims that the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition is a destructive political tool of The Dalai Lama to destroy NKT as well as perpetrator of serious illegal activities, including drug smuggling (such purported facts would likely be slander/libel if not supported by court verdicts).

This web site is a heart-felt plea that Gyatso, his NKT cult and his spiteful devotees relinquish their offensive public ego display and their abuse of esteemed Tibetan teachers of Buddhism (The Dalai Lama, Lama Yeshe (1935-1984), Lama Zopa, Lama Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche) and others. Show the world compassion, not militancy.

Must Shugden be your sword against Buddhism?

NKT, please end your fractionalizing of Tibetan Buddhism.
Stop your selfish war.
You abandoned Tibetan Buddhism and the Tibetan people long ago.
Stop interfering with them now.

Respecting the wondrous legacy of Lama Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) most Buddhists choose not to worship Shugden or his harmful mission as promoted by NKT.
