(By the True Heart News interviewing team in Taipei)Crowned with the halo of Nobel peace laureate and spiritual leader of Tibetan “Buddhism,” the Dalai Lama is in exile to India but travels around the world nonstop. He always cloaks himself in the guise of "compassion and wisdom." In 2001, he visited Taiwan the second time to "propagate the Buddha dharma" and called it "The Journey of Compassion and Wisdom." In 2003, he visited Japan and gave a speech entitled "The Power of Compassion," which just empty talk. Only people who are unaware of the truth, think that the Dalai Lama really has a heart that values compassion.
CEO of the True Enlightenment Foundation, Zhang Gongpu points out, despite of the facade that they painstakingly portray, Tibetan “Buddhism” really is ferocious and bloodthirsty in nature. The Dalai Lama has never understood the real meaning of compassion, and never acted the role of being compassionate either. On the contrary, he not only shows his relentless cruelty, but also is actually the manipulator of many violently bloodstained events from behind the scenes. Unfortunately, the Western media have always been lopsidedly biased. They romanticize the dream of Shambhala in their minds and project this fantasy onto the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is only too willing to play along. As a result, the Western mass media often keep in line with the Dalai Lama promotion group’s wishes and carry them out faithfully. In actuality, Tibetan “Buddhism” speaks in one way, but thinks in another. The truth is a completely different story.
CEO Zhang turns the pages of a free booklet published by Tibet Religious Foundation of H. H. the Dalai Lama, Tibet and Tibetan Buddha Dharma. The contents of this booklet are the original text of Dalai's Japan speech in 2003, The Power of Compassion.1 On pages 15 to 18, Dalai talks elaborately about "the 911 event" happened in New York, Washington in 2001. He condemns the terrorists being "calculating, with brutal intention..." He also talks, incidentally or intentionally, about "great determination and impulse," "careful thinking and sophisticated calculation," and "months even years of meticulous planning." He mentions his visit at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum as well. He talks about this historical event which occurred over sixty years ago; he expresses emphatically of his feeling of "being shocked by the brutal catastrophe instantly, absolutely terrified,” and of how “utterly stunned he was." CEO Zhang raises a question: Is this the way that a religious leader with such high profile should talk about compassion? American and Japanese people really do not need him to rub it in about these events. It is essentially a provocation to stir up people's emotion. It conjures up hatred and draws lines between enemies and friends. He grabs the opportunity to declare his stance on the American and Japanese people, and strives for recognition.

CEO Zhang further points out that the strategy employed by Dalai was merely a show of “shedding crocodile tears.” Japan will never forget the sarin gas attack on March 20, 1995 in the Tokyo subway system, the worst terrorist attack in the post war period. Shoko Asahara, the mastermind and leader of the Aum Shinrikyo group, is a religious psychopath. At its inception, the group was founded on the principles of Mahayana Buddhism - self sacrifice and compassion - not on violence. In February of 1987, Shoko Asahara went to India and met with the 14th Dalai Lama. Later, during Dalai’s visit to Japan, Shoko Asahara was “blessed” by him and they formally entered a master and disciple relationship. Subsequently, Asahara became one of the largest financial supporters of the Dalai Lama, which gained him the role of a teacher of Tibetan Lamaism. Since that time, all the religious rituals of Aum Shinrikyo have been practiced in full accordance with practices of Tibetan Lamaism. The code of conduct of the Aum Shinrikyo group changed from the earlier ethical view of Mahayana Buddhism (compassionate heart, etc.) to what scholar Yelü Dashi calls the “reversal principle” of Lamaism in which any violations of social morals – even criminal acts - are not considered taboo because, as Asahara wrote, “To convert the worst thing into the best thing; this is the tantric way of thinking.” Thus, Asahara had no hesitation in committing the sarin gas murders which shocked the world.
What is more, says CEO Zhang, Asahara and his followers had even developed various biochemical, laser and electromagnetic weapons and manufactured traditional weapons e.g. AK-47 rifles and so on for “the last battle of Shambhala.” It was a prophecy made by the guru of Tibetan “Buddhism” saying that bloody means would be employed for Tibetan “Buddhism” to rule the world completely. The CEO questions further: In Dalai Lama’s recent address to the Japanese on “the power of compassion,” why was there no mention of his outstanding disciple, Asahara? Zhang quotes that, from Yelü Dashi’s viewpoint, the Dalai Lama and Asahara are in fact playing different roles of the same nature. One is acting as the “Goddess of Mercy-Avalokitesvara,” while the other is acting as “Buddha’s” embodiment of the wrathful deity form Yama, the God of Hell. One is the bright side, the other is the shadow side and both are, in fact, of the same “bodily entity.” Yelü explains that this kind of role playing in Tibetan “Buddhism” is not accidental, it is a necessity. The Dalai Lama must shift his inner tyrannical nature to Heruka, a wrathful deity, in order for himself to become the “bright Goddess of Mercy-Avalokitesvara.” CEO Zhang explains, the so-called “power of compassion” is in fact to use the “ruthless power” of his disciple Asahara to pave the road so that the teacher Dalai can appear at the bloody aftermath to reap the advantages of his “compassionate” image.
CEO Zhang adds that during the Dalai Lama’s second visit to Taiwan in 2001, questions were raised by Tibetan “Buddhism” adherents as to whether there was sufficient reason for the Dalai Lama to discourage others from worshiping the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden (who is now regarded as a malevolent deity within Dalai Lama’s tradition of the Gelug Sect but who is still worshiped by a conservative faction), or whether this move was against religious freedom and so on. 1 In reply to those queries, the Dalai Lama admitted that he used to be a practitioner of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Then he immediately turned around to cite the history of Tibetan “Buddhism” and its internal political struggles as well as conflicts as proof that Dorje Shugden is an evil-will spirit. As well, he put the blame on the adherents of Dorje Shugden for the murder event within the Tibetan exile community in India. He further stated that those who continue to propitiate Dorje Shugden should not attend his religious teachings in the future.
CEO Zhang cited from “A Talk on the Tibetan Culture” 2 that the political decisions in Dharamsala, in fact, usually rely on astrology, divination, and even “possession" of certain lamas by the Dharma Protector Deity to convey heavenly messages. This sort of superstitious leadership is just like Yang Xiuqing during the time period of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, who together with some “high ranking officials” used the guise of “Holy Father possessed” to snatch political and religious right of speech in an internal power struggle. Most of those lamas who were previously used for divine-possession were later on charged with “fake possession” and then sent to prison. Yet, the most prominent practitioner of the Dorje Shugden Dharma Protector was the direct dharma tutor and spiritual guide of the 14th Dalai Lama – Trijang Rinpoche, a Living “Buddha.”

There was another branch of the “evil dharma protector deity” within the Gelug Sect, which spread the rumor that the adherents of Dorje Shugden intended to murder the 14th Dalai Lama, thus setting off a crisis. On March 30, 1996, after his tutor Trijang Rinpoche passed away, Dalai government issued an “explicit ban” formally prohibiting worshiping of Dorje Shugden. Meanwhile, a door to door search for the worshippers of Shugden was conducted by Dalai ’s men, thereby Shugden alters were all destroyed and the worshippers were assaulted by hired masked thugs when in the non-Gelug areas. Thereafter, things escalated from banning to expulsion to intimidation to murder and eventually armed fights between the two sides.
The most bloody incident took place on Feb. 4, 1997: Lobsang Gyatso, a confidant of the Dalai Lama, an opponent of Dorje Shugden, and the founder of the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, and his two students were found dead nearby the Dalai Lama’s residence. Their throats were cut, their blood was drained and their skin was peeled off. The whole gruesome act was completed within an hour. This is the murder case which the Dalai Lama blamed on the Shugden group during the question-and-answer session of a speech. But the Shugdens are strongly convinced that both cases of murder and human sacrifice were carried out by the Dalai Lama’s men in order to set up the Shugdens. Der Spiegel, a German magazine, has voiced out for the Shugdens on this issue, asking the Dalai Lama not to persecute them anymore. This is just another proof of fact that the promulgation of "democracy," "human rights," and "religious freedom" from the Tibetan government-in-exile is bogus and is, as usual, designed specially to delude those believers who have a fantasy about Shangri-La.
CEO Zhang points out, infighting of political factions among the senior officials of Tibetan government-in-exile and different sects of Tibetan “Buddhism” are treacherous and bloody. In order to protect himself and fortify his authority, the Dalai Lama did not hesitate to suppress his own people and turn against the “Dharma Protector” Dorje Shugden, to whom he was faithful in his early years. To eradicate dissidents, the Dalai Lama sat on his hands to watch Shugden followers be persecuted or even sacrificed.
The means which the Dalai took against his rivals internally was no less than the actions of totalitarian government of World War II. Externally, he actually employed violent terrorist attacks (such as the action of Shoko Asahara, Shinrikyo group). Was there ever any compassion at all? The Dalai Lama is a hypocrite, good at disguising himself and vying for media attention. Unfortunately, the world, unaware of the truth, has been misled into believing he has a halo while he indulges in the idolatry.
CEO Zhang refers to Mr. Goldner Colin from Freistaat Bayern, Germany, who lived and worked in Tibet, Nepal and India for many years and conducted research and investigations for three years in Dharamsala, home to the Tibetan government-in-exile. Mr. Goldner discovered that Tibet as described by the Dalai Lama, is purely fictitious and for propagation only. The true condition is far cry from this. His conclusion is that Dalai Lama is a hypocrite and has disguised himself as a saint. Goldner sighs:
“The world's high regard which ‘His Holiness’ enjoys across all political and ideological camp, despite all the criticism raised against him for quite some time, remains completely unbroken. He still is regarded as symbol of peacefulness, kindness, and in infinite wisdom of resting serenity. His pronouncements, no matter how trivial, are therefore regarded as the highest expression of knowledge. Such glorifying view of the Dalai Lama is pure projection, based on blatant ignorance of the actual connections.”
CEO Zhang reminds that “Stones from the hills can be used to polish gems.” This Western observer’s wise and rational research and analysis may awake those who blindly idolatrize Tibetan “Buddhism” and might give them the chance to see the Dalai Lama’s true colors and his brutal nature. Do not be fooled by the crocodile tears nor feel sympathetic towards the cat which mourns for the mice with fresh blood still on its whiskers! (Reported by the Interviewing Team) 20120223
