And despite the fact that his Tibetan government in exile toils unrecognized by any other nation except the Czech Republic, and that he wields no worldly power, he is revered by growing thousands around the world as that rarest of beings, a genuinely wise and good man whose “true religion,” as he sometimes says, “is kindness.” Please share with us your impressions of the Dalai Lama and his teachings — in teachings, in personal meetings, or on TV, radio or books. However, sometimes people use karma as an excuse.

But I wonder if he’d be cool with an ugly man? Late in the 14th century, the Chinese overthrew the Mongols, and Tibet regained independence. Specifically "The Way of Virtue" (Gelugpa). He wore a hat and an eye shade to conceal the fact that he lacked the Dalai Lama's piercing eyes. In the Tibetan tradition, verses like the following are often recited to direct the mind towards generating Bodhicitta: Until I reach full enlightenment. Answer: His true knowledge was too subtle and serious in nature to be understood by common people.

As a non-proselytizing Buddhist tradition that is not trying to convert anyone, this has always been expected and it is not a problem. Please, Please, Please Let Me Back Into China!” (she meant Tibet), announced the auction on YouTube, promising the prospective winner of the 1966 station wagon, “You’ll just laugh the whole time that you’re in it!” The bidding closed at more than eighty thousand dollars. Dressed in traditional red and yellow robes and wearing a red visor in an apparent attempt to keep the spotlights out of his eyes, the Dalai Lama encouraged tolerance of religious and cultural differences.

And certainly the Dalai Lama wouldn’t like himself to be seen as a Mahayana evangelist by his fellow Buddhists. Then, momentarily, his respiration stops. Yet much like each concept itself, composed of seemingly contradictory ideas that nevertheless prove to be complimentary, His Holiness insisted on the need for both physics and philosophy in the quest to overcome ignorance and end suffering, which are arguably the main aims of Buddhism.

The Dalai Lama is the 14th and current Dalai Lama as well as the longest lived incumbent. The question of whether there is an external physical reality independent of sentient beings' consciousness and mind has been extensively discussed by Buddhist thinkers. If you do, you have to be cut down to size.“ Kundeling Rinpoche When in 1964, Gyalo Thondup, the Dalai Lama’s eldest brother proposed to abolish the old Buddhist orders and establish a new religious body in the sole control of the Dalai Lama, worried Lamas rushed to the Karmapa for help and guidance.

To my fellow Buddhists of any tradition, and to anyone reading this, I am not asking you or anyone else to position yourselves one way or another on it, let alone become anxious or heavy. They come from other Tibetan Buddhist groups and are on the chat group solely to “do research” for their own anti-NKT agendas (particularly an individual calling himself VJ Kumara who went so far as to wish for Geshe Kelsang’s death), sow dissatisfaction and TGIE propaganda, or promote their own traditions and Gurus. (Sometimes the Survivors realize they are being used in this way, at which point they have protested to the moderators.) Tenzin Peljor deserves a mention here since he was the first to appear on the group straight after Dave had posted his first messages in 2007, suggesting he made the group public so everyone could find it; and since then has been a frequent poster and self-appointed spiritual advisor to the survivors, painstakingly ensuring that no one forgets how dreadful the NKT is and how wonderful (non-Shugden) Tibetan teachers and groups are by contrast.

His speech at USC was titled, "Secular Ethics, Human Values and Society," a topic that was sufficiently broad to allow him to range over matters as diverse as the consciousness of animals, the strengths of India's multicultural society and the nature of happiness. Thus, the First Dalai Lama had forty-six prior reincarnations, and the present Dalai Lama being sixtieth. But does he visit Islamic countries like Syria, Morocco, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Uzbekistan?

Four texts on compassion: a bodhisattva's aspirational prayer by the Indian poet Aryasura, and its commentary by the second Dalai Lama; plus The Inseparability of the Spiritual Master and Avalokiteshvara and a talk on activating compassion, both by the present Dalai Lama. You can look to any good person for guidance and love him. It is a small group who have had problems, though you may know more than I do since you get so many letters.

When guests visit Myosenji Buddhist Temple, located 10 miles northwest of the White House, they often express how confusing learning about Buddhism (especially on the internet) can be. In fact, one that he had more or less convened, and been convening for more than a decade in more private places. A whole society is victimized by such collective acts of delusion under the joke of this madness that is passed on from one generation of monks to the next. However, under no circumstances was the nun to initiate a lawsuit, by herself or through an intermediary such as a functionary attached to the nunnery.

Afterward, brother shall rise against brother. Nor is it possible to accommodate the concept of a divine Creation. The young Dalai Lama's parents were farmers who raised sheep and grew barley, buckwheat, and potatoes. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is committed to promoting religious harmony and understanding among the world’s major religious traditions, and mutual respect and admiration across the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Gushi Khan conquered Kham in 1640 bringing the Sakyas and the lords of Kham and Amdo under their control.
