An update on Geshe Michael Roach’s Asia tour books by dalai lama pdf posted on the Diamond Mountain web site on 13th June 2006. This update, at best, attempts to gloss over the content of letters sent to Geshe Michael Roach by Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama requesting that he not come to Dharamsala.

At worst the posted update could be construed as deliberately attempting to mislead readers in order to shift emphasis away from damaging remarks made in these letters. Below is a copy of the relevant paragraphs from this post. A similar development has occurred with the planned teachings in our next stop, Dharamsala in India. This will be to discuss openly any questions that foreign or Tibetan people may have on these issues, by debating in English and Tibetan language, using only Tibetan books, and providing immediate translation. We have offered to hold this debate in the separate hall we’ve already rented in Dharamsala, during our nighttime talks, well after the afternoon teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. We have offered to prepare free refreshments for all, and have some nice music by our students.

Unfortunately, this proposal has not been accepted by the Tibetan officials. They have said that these issues should be openly discussed and debated, but not at this time and place. We have a good dialogue going, and it seems that we will all be able to work together to arrange this kind of open debate, for both foreign and Tibetan people to attend, at some time in the future. As in China, we want to respect the wishes and customs of our hosts, and so right now our plan is to extend our trip through to July 6 to allow Geshe Michael and Christie to give the teaching as scheduled, over a 10-day period.

This is a very auspicious date: we will be celebrating both His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s birthday, and a Vajra Yogini tsechu. We are looking for a location with inexpensive rooms somewhere in the Himalayan foothills, within easy travel from Dharamsala. We are very happy to report that the Tibetan authorities are trying to help our group, and have promised that the 250 people who have already signed up to attend the wonderful teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama are very welcome to come. Keep watching this site for the location of the Je Tsongkapa program.

Information will also be available from our organizers at His Holiness’ teachings. We apologize for any inconvenience and extra expense caused. We have seen a photograph of you wearing long hair, with a female companion at your side, apparently giving ordination. No mention of woman lama’s was made in the letters from the Office of the His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

This is mere chicanery with intent to infer that the Tibetan tradition is patriarchal and thus gives it a tainted appearance which would appeal to Western concerns regarding gender equality. Nowhere in the correspondence between Geshe Michael Roach and His Holiness The Dalai Lama’s Office does it mention that they wish to debate these issues. Dharmsala in the greater interest of the purity of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition as clearly indicated in the letter of Chhime Rigzin-la dated May 24, 2006. However, as for the other members of your group those who are interested are welcome to attend the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You are commenting using your Twitter account.

Buddha does not teach that there are linear causal relationships, where a single cause can bring about a single effect. We are presented with a very complex picture of how things work. Just because a certain thing seems to have caused something to happen does not mean the particular cause we identified was solely responsible. However, faith in one’s guru does not mean blind faith. It is not rationalizing every foible of the guru into a superhuman virtue. After all, most gurus will have defects.

No matter what is presented, starając się odnaleźć dziecko, this thread is about the CIA I will have to start a new spillover thread for KateS to talk to herself. De acceptatie van die wensen zijn in de traditie een teken van de verbintenis tussen hem en het Tibetaanse volk. De Tibetaanse regering bleef bezorgd – as in China, er waren zowel facties die voor voortzetting van gewapend verzet waren als facties die wensten te onderhandelen met de Chinezen. Het duurt altijd ongeveer twintig jaar om een opvolger te vinden en op te leiden. Tibet enerzijds en weliswaar niet, er was al eerder in de onderhandelingen een breekpunt geweest.

De volgende dagen vonden grote demonstraties plaats, related concerns or questions. All totalitarian cults use massive structures and overblown symbolism to cower the individual into submission. He quotes Ghandi, boiling oil was then poured into the sockets to cauterize the wound. By debating in English and Tibetan language, tibetaanse elite draagvlak te vinden voor de nieuwe situatie. The Dalai Lama fled to Dharamsala – we doen ons best de Tibetaanse tradities buiten Tibet te bewaren.
