Story about a Tibetan Buddhist deity.

This is something that eventually any Buddhist would encounter. It's about Dorje Shugden, the supposedly demon that the Dalai Lama has banned. I believe that everyone deserves to know both sides of the story and thus, they should at least learn about Dorje Shugden's origins before deciding that that he is bad. I am not going against the Dalai Lama or anything, but shouldnt we as Buddhists have a right investigate and learn before we actually believe in something? 10 out of 10 people out there who are against Dorje Shugden have no idea how he originated and who was his previous incarnation. They only know he's bad because the Dalai Lama says so. There are many resources on him online, so I am hoping that before anyone makes a judgement or decision, please do at least learn about him before deciding. At least, knowing 2 sides of the story is better than following one side blindly.

G'day Tenzincjoje

I agree.... no truly enlightened being/entity can see wrong or right in anything as comparisons are only made by what we can't see in other words by not seeing something in it's true form we are manifesting what is not necessarily so.

To a true enlightened being all is as one & all other manifestations from this are only existing because of ignorance, this is saying our reality is made up of ignorance.

Love
Mathew

Acceptance of all leads to true spiritual awareness.

In a way, there is no wrong or right in everything when it comes to the absolute level, but on a relative level, people still get hurt. People 'loyal' to the Dalai Lama want to prove their loyalty by focusing their anger and wrath on Dorje Shugden's followers...when all the Dalai Lama told them is to not practice Dorje Shugden. Why is there a necessity to brand him as the satan of Buddhism? But then again, most people who do so are not aware of who Dorje Shugden really is, so they make clouded judgements and mistakes.

I am beginning to have serious doubts about the Dalai Lama. I think he is slowly losing his marbles.

His acknowledgment that he may be the last Dalai Lama, no doubt helped by Chinsese opposition to him and Tibetan culture, could be seen as abandonning his tradition and his people, a betrayal of the past which has brought him to the position he has.
