Mongoose-Canine Letter

This is a letter called the Mongoose-Canine sent to the Dalai Lama. This anonymous letter was given by Tibetan people to an English woman now living in Italy while she was travelling in Nepal in September 1995.  Much of this information is widely known within the Tibetan Community in India and Nepal.

     Your Holiness, in 1959 your country was invaded by the communist Chinese army.  You and about 90,000 Tibetans had to flee to India, Nepal and Bhutan.  At that time you began to take the main responsibility for Tibet.  Looking at what happened from then until now, Tibetan refugees have received aid from the Red Cross and India.  They were given land in India and Nepal on which to live and were able to settle down.  The Tibetans have survived and they have managed to become quite well off and have a comfortable life.

Your Holiness, you are the one who established the exile government.  Therefore, I want to mention what has been going on under your rule:

1. The problem of Dujom Rinpoche caused by the jealousy of your government: your government made the Indian Government accuse Dujom Rinpoche of being a Chinese spy and have him arrested in 1963 in Siliguri, after he had given an impressive religious teaching in Kalimpong.

2. The problem of thirteen Tibetan settlement s uniting against your exile government: In connectoin with the events regarding Dujom Rinpoche and others, thirteen Tibetan settlements united against your exile government in Dharamsala from 1964 until 1981.

3. The problem of your government splitting the Tibetan guerilla fighters in Mustang.  In fact, they were originally organized by your government with the help of the CIA.  In 1969, as a consequence of Nixon’s policy with China, you provoked a fight among the Tibetan guerillas over their weapons.  The fight finally destroyed them.

4. The problem of Mr. Alo Choedzoe connected with your economics minister.  Your government cheated Mr. Choedzoe’s factory.

5. The problem of your government assassinating Mr. Gongtang Tsultrim in 1975.  He was the leader of the thirteen groups.

6. The problem regarding the late Gyalwa Karmapa Rigpay Dorje because of his influence and the fact that the thirteen groups had appointed him as their spiritual leader.

7. The problem regarding the misunderstanding between you and your tutor Yongdzin Trijang Rinpoche because of your brother’s slandering.

8. The problem with the Tibetan-Mongolian Association in Taiwan.  You were making money by sending your brother Mr. Dondrub to Taiwan to trade arms between Taiwan, Pakistan and Burma.  Because of the danger of this information leaking out to the public, you claimed that Taiwan goes along with China on the Tibet issue.  Therefore, in order to keep Tibetans from going to Taiwan, you accused everyone travelling to Taiwan, even those engaged only in private business, of siding with China.

9. The problem of Kunzang Lama pointing out faults in your government.  In 1989 Mr. Kunzang Lama found out that your government had received large amounts of money from the Tibetan-Mongolian Association in Taiwan and for this reason he accused your government.

10. The current problem of the issue of the reincarnation of the Karmapa.  Your backing the candidate established by communist China has caused tremendous harm within Tibetan politics.

11. The problem of Chi Shi Gang Druk (“Four Rivers, Six Mountains” Khampa Organization) finding another way for the future of Eastern Tibet.  You made a secret deal with communist China offering them the area of Kham in favor of your personal benefit.  Chi Shi Gang Druk found out about this and the result has been continual heavy fighting.

During the last forty years your exile government has created problems non-stop.  As for you, Your Holiness, what have you been doing during this time?  You have treated your own Tibetan people as your enemies and, rather than working for Tibetan democracy, you have thoroughly challenged them as your main responsibility.  If you had given up any concern for protecting your own power in religion and politics, and had instead focused on establishing true democracy these problems would not have had ground in which to grow.  Even if these kinds of problems had occured, they would not have been connected with your government and they would not have kept recurring.  How has this happened?  If Your Holiness had really tried to be like Mahatma Gandhi, as you yourself repeatedly mentioned, all these matters would be problems of your children and not problems of you, the father.  These problems arose not from the efforts of working for the freedom of Tibet, but from your trying to protect your own power.

Here I would like to comment a little further on what actually happened.

First Your Holiness had good intentions.  In 1959 you were young and it was a period of many great people, such as Mahatma Gandhi, Johala Nehru, J.F. Kennedy.  Your Holiness had a hard and painful time being the leader of Tibet, but you were also dynamic.  That is why you were able to challenge the power of Red China.  You had joy in committing and dedicating yourself in being the number one leader of Tibet.  Your plan was to make Tibet into a modern and democratic country as many other countries in the world.  However, you still remained orthodox and hung onto your position as the boss over religion.

In the beginning you expelled the hierarchical officials who accompanied you from Tibet.  This was because it was clear that those who hold such positions could not sacrifice their prestige.  They would not have accepted democracy and modernization but would instead have objected to any reform.  You also strongly went against reestablishing in exile the orthodox system of big monastic institututions with hundreds of monks.  However, you did not succeed and what was the real cause for that?  The cause is the invisible disease which is still there and which develops immediately if met with various conditions.  And what is this disease?  It is your clinging to your own power.  It is a fact that even at that time if someone would have used democracy on you, you would not have been able to accept it.  The habit of being the powerful boss of the Potala palace woke up and showed its ugly face.

Look at the example of the great Mahatma Gandhi who served his country selflessly and managed to establish pure democracy in the great land of India.  The secret behind his success was that he realized from the beginning that one must sever all ties and attachments to one’s own life and welfare thoroughly.  If only a little self-concern is still there it can break out at any time and destroy everything, just as a small match can cause a whole forest to burn.

Look at Stalin and Chairman Mao on the other hand.  They did not know that the ego has to be removed in order to serve the nation properly.  When they reached the peak of their powerthey were so concerned about holding onto it that they became paranoid.  To elimin ate what they saw as dangerous threats to their power, they had to kill the people who had worked with them from the beginning.  Then those people who know about this killing had to be killed as well.  So it went on and on until hundreds, thousands, and even millions of people had to be killed.

The Buddha said that one needs ‘right view’, ‘right meditation’, and ‘right conduct’.  To fulfill this one has to truly commit and dedicate oneself with a pure mind; a mind of a Bodhisattva.  The result, good or bad, of one’s work, whether religious or political, depends upon the degree of one’s dedication.  Your Holiness, you wish to be a great leader, but you do not know that in order to fulfil this wish, a ‘political Bodhisattva vow’ is required.  So you entered instead the wrong ‘political path of accumulation’ (tsog lam) and that has led you on a continuously wrong path.  You believed that in order to be a great leader you had to secure your own position first of all, and whenever any opposition against you arose you had to defend yourself, and this has become contagious.

When I talk about the consequences of your work, I am not calculating the personal victories you have gained for your own fame.  I am calculating how much benefit the Tibetan people have gained for their future aims.  For example, when in the 1960s you tried to get rid of one great Lama’s power, such as Dujom Rinpoche and Karmapa, the effect was felt by many Tibetan Lamas, and you caused them to unite in opposition.  You could not leave it lightly and you had to do something that caused a split within Tibetan society.

Moreover, to challenge Lamas you have used religion for your aim.  To that purpose you had to develop the Tibetan people’s blind faith.  In the end you adopted the same activity that you yourself had pointed out was mistaken in other Lamas.  For instance, you started the politics of public Kalachakra initiations.  Normally the Kalachakra initiation is not given in public.  Then you started to use it continuously in a big way for your politics.  The result is that now the Tibetan people have returned to exactly the same muddy and dirty mixing of politics and religion of Lamas which you yourself had so precisely criticised in earlier times.  The current events in relation to the controversy about the Karmapa reincarnation is one such instance.  Your ministers will have told you that a Karmapa established in the Himalayas will affect the name and power of the Dalai Lama as before since he is very popular in the Himalayas.  If the Tibetan exile government of Dalai Lama is really working for the independence of Tibet, for the democracy of Tibet, and for the civilization of Tibet, how can a private organization, like that of the Karmapa, affect your government?  There is no connection and no relevance.  Or did the communist Chinese devise a deeply political game by establishing a Karmapa in Tibet?  When Your Holiness Dalai Lama gave support for this (backing of the Chinese candidate) how badly has this harmed Tibet’s future?  You think that if within your life you cannot be the leader of the Tibetans in Tibet, at least you must keep your position as leader of Tibet in India by using Dharma and politics.  For that you calculate that it does not matter what happens for the future of Tibet after your life, as long as you can keep your power now.  It is really sad.

Seen from another angle.  In 1985-86 the Nyingma Shingchong Tulku of Katok Monastery, Dzongnang Tulku of Clementown, Dehradun, and Mr. Lingtsang Gyalsaw went to Tibet as guests of the communist Chinese government.  At that time your exile government commanded us Tibetans to revolt against them because they were siding with the Chinese and we made a thorough attack on them.  Today the Situ and Gyaltsab Rinpoches of the Kagyupa do everything with regard to the Karmapa reincarnation in favor of the politics of communist China.  Instead of objecting your Holiness is giving them your full support.  Isn’t this surprising?  This is what I meant when I mentioned above that you always give priority to your own well-being and power, even at the cost of Tibet’s future.  I am not trying to tell you that you should be concerned with the future Dalai Lamas regarding them being leaders of Tibet.  I am telling you that you are not working for the future progress and democracy of the Tibetan people in Tibet.  Also, I am telling you that you are extremely dishonest and hypocritical.

When Katok Shingchong Rinpoche and the others went to Tibet and proclaimed that they will get the Kham autonomous region from China, your exile government told us to challenge them and we did very well.  Nowadays you yourself have accepted both secretly and openly that the Tibet Autonomous Region and Kham is under China.  Whenever you give objections, be it to Katok Shingchong  Tulku earlier on or to the Chu Shi Gang Druk nowadays, you do it only for yourself and solely out of jealousy and for power.  It is very sad.  Nowadays you have given the Kalachakra initiation so many times you have made the Tibetan people into donkeys.  You can force them to go here and there as you like.  In your words you always say that you want to be Gandhi but in your action you are like a religious fundamentalist who uses religious faith for political purposes.  Your image is the Dalai Lama, your mouth is Mahatma Gandhi and your heart is like that of a religious dictator.  You are a deceiver and it is very sad that on top of the suffering that they already have the Tibetan people have a leader like you.  Tibetans have become fanatics.  They say that the Dalai Lama’s name is more important than the pronciple of Tibet.  You have achieved your goal.

In brief, if somebody like Mr. Dawa Norbu who is totally dedicated to Tibetan politics and society says something very important for the Tibetan cause, but his talk might affect your power you send your men secretly to encourage the public of fanatic devotees to protest and to spread the wrong information that Mr. Dawa Norbu is against the Dalai Lama and so on.  Simultaneously you appear publicly and praise this man.  Due to this double game, not one dedicated person can appear to do something for the good of Tibet.  You are already so confident that you can use the Kalachakra initiation for repairing everything you might have done wrong, and, as a matter of fact, it works because the situation in Tibet nowadays is based on blind faith and continual talking.

I request you with your eyes full of tears, ‘Please, if you feel like being like gandhi, do not turn the Tibetan situation in the church dominated style of 17th Century Europe.’


International Shugden Community –

Letter to Dalai Lama from Lama Shree Narayan Singh

It is this Hindutva which has spawned the highly imperious, racist and Sino-centric Dalai Lama, the new Brahmin, essentially an overly glorified refugee, who seeks to rule the world in the name of Gelugpa Buddhism, with the aid of his western friends. Indians in particular, as also countless westerners, fooled by his oratory, fail to understand that ethnically, socially, economically and politically he is inextricably linked with China and will do nothing which will go against it. In his scheme of things, India, the country of his domicile, is merely a convenience, a temporary plaything!

  1. In fact his elder brother and mentor, Gyalo Thondup, lives permanently in Beijing. In spite of having lived for 45 yrs like a de facto monarch of and in India, the Dalai Lama, bottle fed by the CIA, willingly toes the Chinese line much to the detriment of India, his country of domicile. His links with the CIA, all of which are documented, date back to the early fifties with it being instrumental in planning and executing the DL’s flight from Tibet 1959, training Khampa guerillas etc.
  2. The Dalai Lama has been made ‘the face of Buddhism’ in the world, through exceptionally aggressive PR, even though he is merely a mentor in the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism with a limited international following! This perception is so widespread that people who have absolutely no knowledge or understanding of the Tibetan phenomena, are completely closed to the very idea that it is a complex co-existence of the good and the bad — that the Dalai Lama is yet another culpable human being in spite of the aura of inscrutability which has been created around him!
  3. The GOI bends over backward to cater to the whims and fancies of the Dalai Lama. The media is compelled by it to cover up and not mention the truth concerning him! Amazingly, a dozen Indian monks, expressing their legitimate constitutional rights to protest peacefully against the Dalai Lama in Bodh Gaya Jan 03, were sent to jail on trumped up charges, in the freezing winter, simply to appease this ‘God, King and Emperor of Small Things’ and ensure that his misconceived plans in Bodh Gaya to perform his pseudo religious and highly politically motivated Kalachakra Initiations and so on, were not obstructed!
  4. Earlier, 13-12-1998 this writer together with two other unarmed Buddhists, were thrashed by Tibetans in front of the High Court, Patna Bihar, for the simple reason that they had put up banners challenging the Dalai Lama purported sovereign status, emphasising that he is merely a political refugee, drawing attention to the Chinese attempt to capture Sikkim through the purported Karmapa UTD and so on!
  5. On Sunday May 25, 02, Saga Dawa, this writer, together with his 8 yr old son, both dressed as Lamas had visited Dharma Chakra Centre, Rumtek, Sikkim, the Seat of HH the Gyalwang Karmapa at about 1130 hrs. His wife and attendant had walked up the steep slope separately and gone straight to the main courtyard. This writer and his son walked up to the Thong Dhrol Lhakhang in the Karmae Nalanda Institute, where the relics of HH the XVIth Gyalwang Karmapa are enshrined in a 12′ high golden stupa. He was amazed to find an atmosphere of darkness in the temple as if the spirit had left the place a long time ago.

After paying obeisance, as the duo silently walked down towards the main temple, they were accosted by some Dalai Lama loyalists, one monk and a few lay people whom this writer recognized from the past when better days had prevailed. They started to harangue and harass him even though this writer had visited with the simple intent of paying homage on this holy day and told them so.

They shoved a couple of round brown pills about 1 cm in diameter in front of them telling them that these contained the urine and faeces of HH the Dalai Lama and we were to eat these pills as blessings. Seeing their aggressiveness, this writer and his son hurried down the slope to the car park with these Dalai Lama loyalists chasing them down. Of course, the police was no where to be seen hence a written complaint was lodged with the DG Police, Gangtok and sent to him by registered post. This writer’s wife was later called down from the monastery by their taxi driver. All this took place in spite of a court order restraining the Dalai Lama loyalists from breaking the law and harassing visitors!

So much for democracy a la Dalai Lama!

Moreover, he has introduced certain peculiarities of Tibetan culture into India, notably monastic homosexual paedophilia, a criminal offence which is simply abhorrent, condoned only by its nauseous frequency. The Dalai Lama does not have the courage to openly denounce it and ensure that ‘especially the Gelugpas’ do not engage in this wickedness under the garb of self righteousness. It hardly needs to be stated that boys who have been molested grow up permanently scarred, with a vast range of psychological problems. Even Heinrich Harrer in his travelogue ‘Seven Years in Tibet’ categorically states that monks in the Potala Palace are homosexuals. One wonders why the Dalai Lama and his followers continue to pretend as if this does not exist. In so doing they actively condone the evil. Strictly, as the Vatican has been doing, such offences should be tried in courts with offending monks summarily disrobed! But then perhaps he is himself guilty of such misdemeanour! For shame, for shame !

If this is the community of monks the Dalai Lama leads, then this country and the world at large would be a far better place without him and his Gelugpa following!

Unfortunately his public image is so strong, with his admirers in powerful places, that few are even willing to even consider this as a possibility! Even the Secretary General of the UN and the UN Human Rights Commission refuse to investigate these sordid events in the monasteries of the Dalai Lama.. Similarly, the Govt of India continues to fete him as if the Dalai Lama is the constitutional monarch of India, inscrutable and indispensable!
  1. Although it is known that he is no friend of India, he is still permitted to fly his national flag and run his Govt of Tibet in exile for which there is no provision in the Constitution of India or international law. The Dalai Lama, simply stated, is yet another scam! Under its aegis he runs a legislature and executive of some sort, but has not established a judiciary. This last so that his loyalists may openly break Indian laws with impunity.

For him and his ardent followers, India is a country where one may do as one pleases with total impunity, hence the Dalai Lama!

  1. Indians have absolutely no inkling whatsoever that the Dalai Lama’s recognition of Urgyen Trinlay Dorje, the Chinese Karmapa, who supposedly fled mid-winter from TAR, PRC 1999, and for all practical purposes sent to India by the PRC, is entirely at the behest of the Govt of the PRC. The world has been fooled into believing that a person assessed medically as 24 – 27 yrs old as of April 2000 by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Research, Chandigarh, is being promoted by the Dalai Lama as barely 18! The GOI has purposely suppressed this report giving the Dalai Lama a clean chit in this matter! Moreover there exists sufficient evidence to show that the person recognized jointly by the Dalai Lama and the Chinese govt in 1992 has been replaced by this person who claims to be UTD.
  2. Moreover, there is an young Indian adult who was the first to have been pronounced as the XVIIth Karmapa by Indian saints as early as 1982. He has been sidelined by the Dalai Lama simply because he is NOT a Tibetan. So much for Dharma, truth and righteousness.
  3. All this is courtesy the dhotiwalas, the custodians of Hindutva, the Guardians of the Faith, seated in New Delhi!
  4. The reason why the Dalai Lama continues to live in India is simply because he is able to do as, when and whatever he pleases here with the GOI squandering Rs. 60 crores, 600 million, or more annually of the public exchequer, maintaining this dubious character, and that too without the consent of the Parliament. But then, there is none who will dare to question this in Parliament.
  5. He will never live in a western country governed by Christian ethos for the simple reason that he will be bound to follow its laws, losing all his privileges in the process. In India the Dalai Lama has emerged as a law unto himself.
  6. He creates and bends the provisions of the Three Covenants of Buddhism to suit his own convenience. If the Buddha’s teachings are to be strictly applied to him and his followers, it will be found that the Dalai Lama is not even a monk within the definition of the term and that he has forfeited the right to refer himself as a Vajra Master due to his variegated acts of commission and omission in the name of political expediency. Similarly with the purported Prime Minister of the Govt of Tibet in exile amongst many others!
  7. Residents of a western country moreover, would never tolerate his antics, examining his action in detail! His undelectable realities exposed for all to see, the halo of spirituality carefully crafted around him would collapse like nine pins! But then the west too has double standards in that it avidly sponsors him to create trouble in India for India through people such as this Dalai Lama, just as it bolsters Pakistan to foment trouble in India!
  8. Those who wish to know more about the Tibetan phenomenon are referred to ‘The Water Bird & Other Years’ by K. Dhondup, available from Dolkar Herbal Medicines, D-10 Kalkaji, New Delhi 110 019; ‘Tibet, Tibet’ by Patrick French, Harper Collins Publishers, India. ‘Seven Years in Tibet’ by Heinrich Harrer is the classic travelogue for the years between 1942 – 51. The movie is actually a political propaganda created by the Dalai Lama and his govt intended to mislead the world. The inquisitive may compare the book with the movie to substantiate the above.
