A Trip of Magic ! The Innova came zipping past the various other cars and stood in front of us to take us to our dreamland Mcleodganj. This was the first time I realised how Harry Potter felt when he boarded the magic train to the magic land. The Innova started on its twists and turns to take us 90 kms up. On the magic hill. The Bhagsu hotel appeared after a lot of songs and sleeping faces. What followed was a sleepy wait for our respective rooms. While I remember only the dreams on the sofa my fellow magicians had fed themselves to Paranthas and stale samosas. Post our so called half completed naps; we set out for the trip to the city. Dalai Lama disallowed us entry and the Church was too rude to let us in. The Naddi had a decent view which was spoiled by two Sardars. What stood out that evening was the Bhagsu Fall. The high speed water gushing out of the hills and the chilled out temperatures makes the heart long for more. The stone right at the corner had a special view and those few moments staring at ...

Tibetans Assaulted by Chinese Police at Dzoege Checkpoint 2014-07-09 They had tried to help a truck driver carrying building supplies to a nearby monastery. About a dozen Tibetans were seriously injured when they came under attack by Chinese security forces as they tried to defend a Tibetan truck driver questioned at a checkpoint in western China’s Sichuan province, sources said. The driver, who had been transporting building materials to a local monastery, was stopped on Monday at a checkpoint outside Benyul village in Dzoege (in Chinese, Ruo’ergai) county in the Ngaba (Aba) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, a local source told RFA’s Tibetan Service. When police asked him to show his permit allowing him to carry the materials, the two heads of Benyul village and other villagers—all of them Tibetans—went to his assistance and vouched for his authority to do the work, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Suddenly, more police arrived on the scene and attacked the Tibetans who were ...
Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. Then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn't enjoy the present: the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.- The Dalai Lama

"Whenever I meet new people, people from different races in other places, or wherever I go, I never think, I am Buddhist, I am Tibetan, I am Monk. I just think, I am a person, I am a human being. Just as the person I am meeting is a human being. Therefore I immediately feel a sense of brotherhood - fellow human feeling. Therefore I have friends everywhere. I have friends in Islam, in Hinduism, in the Jewish religion, in Christianity… I have also friends among people who don't have belief in any religion. Like scientists, academics. Many of them don't have any interest in religion. But still we have very warm feelings, a human feeling toward each other. From the scientists' point of view, human warm feeling is getting new interest in today's time." Dalai Lama, in his birthday speech this week
"Anger cannot be overcome by anger. If someone is angry with you, and you show anger in return, the result is a disaster.

ICT's "insights" on Dalai Lama going home : A former Tibetan monk from Gansu, the Tibetan area of Amdo, talked to some Tibetans from eastern Tibet who had just arrived in India about the deeply-felt wish for the Dalai Lama to come home. He said this as a summary of their conversation: “There are two conflicting messages coming from the Chinese government. One is the anti-Dalai Lama campaign. Another is that the door is open for His Holiness to return to China. For the Dalai Lama to return to Tibet – that is 100% the demand of the Tibetan people inside. But there is no particular route that seems apparent to achieving that, because this call strongly counters existing policies. Changing the policies may bring the possibility of the return. Today if China accepts His Holiness the Dalai Lama back to Tibet there are still many Tibetans who will disagree with that, because they know the existing laws and constitution cannot ensure His Holiness’ security under the current situation. Things are changing th ...

Sakya Trizin is the supreme head of the Sakya school of Tibetan Budhism. He has completed his education while still in Tibet, at the feet of his root teacher Ngawang Shenphen Lodrö and many other lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. Exiled in India, he has surmounted every difficulty in preserving the Sakya lineage and establishing it on a firm basis: building monasteries, creating lay communities, and founding the Sakya monastic college, which is now producing a new generation of scholars. His Holiness had close links with Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche and Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. In addition to his vast learning, he is a renowned vajrayana practitioner. He is also familiar with Western culture and speaks excellent English. From 18 to 28 July 2014

Thank you to my friend Elizabeth Bailey for sharing this and of course thank you to the Dalai Lama. I often come across the idea in many people that forgiveness is weak or some kind of wooly liberal soft idea. Firstly, it takes a lot of strength to forgive someone. It is not a weakness. Secondly, forgiving someone does not mean releasing them of the responsibility for their actions. That responsibility stays with them regardless. They are not let off the hook at all. What forgiving does is to help the person on the receiving end of their action to start healing. You don't even have to tell a person you forgive them. It's in your own mind that counts. Its your own peace of mind that's the most important and that is what forgiving along, with other things, helps you find.

Yesterday we were sent a link of an Amnesty International advertisement about torturing and with that was a horrible shocking photo (faux) of HH the Dalai Lama, his face beaten and with blood. We quickly read through the advertisement (in french) and called the Amnesty International in London who told us that the Advertisement came from Amnesty Belgium and they gave us their phone number and also told they would call and email their media staff about the Dalai Lama photo. We called to Belgium to the Amnesty and were very kindly helped by the French speaking media staff who understood why we wanted to have HH picture taken off immediately from that advertisement of torture. Within 10 minutes we received a phone call that they had taken the photo off line and that it was no longer on their site or advertisement. We want to thank Amnesty International for their very quick action and understanding in this matter. UNFFT.

Wishing good luck to all Dalai Lama Fellows on their fellowship journey.
Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or nonbelieving, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference. —Dalai Lama

If you feel "burnout" setting in, if you feel demoralized and exhausted, it is best, for the sake of everyone, to withdraw and restore yourself. The point is to have a long-term perspective. - The Dalai Lama
We need to be clear which emotions are harmful and which are helpful; then cultivate those that are conducive to peace of mind. Often, due to a lack of knowledge, we accept anger and hatred as natural parts of our minds. This is an example of ignorance being the source of our problems. To reduce our destructive emotions we strengthen the positive ones; such emotional hygiene can contribute to a healthier society. ― Dalai Lama

European Parliament support on MIDDLE WAY APPROACH policy of 14th Dalai Lama .
"...if you utilize obstacles properly, then it strengthens your courage, and it also gives you more intelligence, more wisdom. Because there is obstacle, you make attempt; so have to think, have to try something. Have to try certain way; so this gives strength and also wisdom and intelligence. If you use them in wrong way, then discourage, failure, depression." –His Holiness The Dalai Lama
WAR, IRAQ, ENLIGHTENMENT Sometimes, it’s when all hope is seemingly lost that the greatest breakthroughs occur in life. Whatever forces us to recognize the limit to what we can do by ourselves, opens the mind to consider the possibility that there might be another way. When everything is all messed up, we’ve played all our cards, and we don’t have a clue what to do now – that often becomes a magic moment. Commonly called “bottoming out,” it’s the point when we realize that our way isn’t working – and then miraculously, things start working. Nations can bottom out, just like individuals. And the situation in Iraq is just such a moment. You know the government is running out of cards to play when they’re thinking maybe Iran can help. Or when the media’s idea of great coverage is to call and ask the people who got us into Iraq for any great ideas they might have now that it’s all exploded in our faces. To say we’re grasping for straws is an understatement. Looking at the power of IS ...
To all my buddhist brothers and sisters, please DO NOT LIKE THE PAGE OF "Dorje Shugden" or SUPPORT the Dorje Shugden unless u know what is really going on. "The Dorje Shugden" group is not protesting against China for free Tibet but against H.H.The Dalai Lama. So don't just blindly like the page with some monks and Tibetan flag. If you support this group or like the page it means you are literary AGAINST H.H. The Dalai Lama. My brother melam is being bombarded with comments from the Dorje Shugden side for showing support for Dalai Lama. Please be careful when u click like button and if ur are a follower of Dorje Shugden then please know i have no ill will against you, after all that blaming on H.H.The Dalai Lama i am just doing my part. Thank you.
An open letter to Robert Thurman Dear Mr Thurman, I hope you don’t mind me writing, but I felt it very necessary to put right some of your false claims regarding the practice of Dorje Shugden. It is beyond the remit of this letter to address any specific religious points as they are doctrinal discussions that have no place here, however you make several incorrect statements in your article/letter/editorial piece entitled, “The Dalai Lama and the Cult of Dolgyal Shugden” which is published on the Huffington Post Religion site and was recently re-published on the Dalai Lama's official website. The first error is in the title where you refer to Dorje Shugden incorrectly as Dolgyal Shugden. As you are well aware the term ‘Dolgyal’ is offensive and racist towards Dorje Shugden followers, I can only assume that you include it in your title as a way of trying to bring the offensive term into popular use. This is sloppy both for a journalist and especially for an acclaimed professor of Buddhism and so I ...

Destroying Tibetan Buddhism in Order to Save It? By Barbara O'Brien I have hesitated to weigh in on the Shugden controversy because I practice Zen Buddhism, and the Shugden controversy involves aspects of Tibetan Buddhism that are mystifying even to other Buddhists. But the continuing demonstrations against His Holiness the Dalai Lama need to be explained, so I will do the best I can. Dorje Shugden is an iconic character from Tibetan mythology. Much of Tibetan iconography features deities and heavenly beings representing the dharma or an energy or function of enlightenment, such as compassion. In tantric Buddhist practice (which is not limited to Tibetan Buddhism), meditation, chants, and other practices that focus on these iconic characters cause the energy or function they represent to arise in the practitioner and become manifest. Thus, these beings are best understood as archetypes. The Tibetan Distinction Tibetan Buddhism, with its elaborate schema of who is a consort, reincarnation or wrathful manif ...
His Holiness the Dalai Lama's Advice Concerning Dolgyal (Shugden) Following long and careful investigations, His Holiness the Dalai Lama strongly discourages Tibetan Buddhists from propitiating the fierce spirit known as Dolgyal (Shugden). Although he once practised Dolgyal propitiation himself, His Holiness renounced the practice in 1975 after discovering the profound historical, social and religious problems associated with it. He did so with the full knowledge and support of his junior tutor, the late Kyabje Trichang Rinpoche through whom His Holiness first became associated with the practice. Even within the Geluk and Sakya schools - the Tibetan Buddhist traditions to which majority of Dolgyal practitioners belong - the propitiation of this spirit has been controversial throughout its history. Historical investigation reveals that Dolgyal practice, which has strong sectarian overtones, has a history of contributing to a climate of sectarian disharmony in various parts of Tibet, and between various Tib ...

On Dorje Shugden ban by the Dalai Lama: Inspiring videos to share! Interview with a very senior Scholar and meditation master of Chatreng Monastery... ~ Vajra Yogini
via Kadam Bridget Heyes Today in Livorno in Italy the Dalai Lama is giving some talks. On the website for these events he talks about how we are all part of one human family and how deep down we are all the same. But this hypocrite denies Buddhists praying to Dorje Shugden membership of this human family by discriminating against them and not allowing them into his talks. Incredibly he uses the reason that if Shugden people are allowed in this would harm the student-teacher relationship which is so sacred in Buddhism. He neglects to mention that he himself is the world's most famous destroyer of this relationship...he himself rejected his own teachers a long time ago thus ensuring that he has no lineage blessings and has no qualification as a Buddhist teacher himself. Surely he is the greatest liar and cheat of modern times. How sadly those listeners to his talks are being tricked and deceived by this utterly false Dalai Lama.
Totally agree, all that needs to happen is for the Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden worship. It is that simple!

Fortune's annual ranking is based on a person's possession of rare leadership skills, admirability as well as having an influential role in society.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama with President Barack Obama in the Map Room of the White House on February 21, 2014.
If this were not so tragic, it would be hilarious. If it were in a movie, you would never believe it but this a "different administration". If you thought President Obama’s release of five top Taliban commanders in exchange for POW Bowe Bergdahl was bad, wait until you see what his Gitmo parole board plans. Desperate to empty the Guantanamo Bay prison by the end of his term, Obama quietly is giving “get out of jail free” cards for the flimsiest of excuses. One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama. Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.” And one longtime detainee, a former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, is now harmless because he’s going to start a “milk and honey farm.” The Periodic Review Board already helped clear 78 of the remaining 149 prisoners for release, documents show, and has scheduled more hearings for this summer. Many of these men were dubbed “forever prison ...

The basic key to improve relationships with China is to drive out Tibetan refugees from India. It is my strong personal belief that Tibetans are actually a thaw in relationships between India and China. They eat up our economy, earn money from us and yet they are not faithful to India. Can we really afford the lavish expenditure on government in exile of Dalai Lama? It is high time when we take a decision that Tibet is an internal part of China and we have nothing to do with it.

“We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.” . ― 14th Dalai Lama
This post is so great and hit a few notes with me; Here are a few things I believe many of us could forgive ourselves for, things we should start working on in order to achieve inner peace and happiness. 1. Forgive yourself for not accepting yourself completely You and I both know that there are many people out there who aren’t really happy with who they are and what they are, who always criticize themselves and always compare themselves with others. We will never be happy if we continue living our lives this way, and before we can even consider changing the way we think and the way we perceive ourselves, we need to learn how to forgive ourselves for all the time we spent ignoring our own beauty and our own greatness. 2. Forgive yourself for constantly seeking approval in all the wrong places It’s never too late to start seeking for approval in the right place, it’s never too late to start getting approval from the right person, which is YOU! All the approval you will ever need is your own approval ...

Tārā has many stories told which explain her origin as a bodhisattva. One in particular has a lot of resonance for women interested in Buddhism and quite likely for those delving into early 21st-century feminism. In this tale there is a young princess who lives in a different world system, millions of years in the past. Her name is Yeshe Dawa, which means "Moon of Primordial Awareness". For quite a number of aeons she makes offerings to the Buddha of that world system, whose name was Tonyo Drupa. She receives special instruction from him concerning bodhicitta—the heart-mind of a bodhisattva. After doing this, some monks approach her and suggest that because of her level of attainment she should next pray to be reborn as a male to progress further. At this point she lets the monks know in no uncertain terms that from the point of view of Enlightenment it is only "weak minded worldlings" who see gender as a barrier to attaining enlightenment. She sadly notes there have been few who wish to work for the ...
"The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others. How much am I doing about my anger, attachment, hatred, pride and jealousy? These are the things we must check in our daily lives." ~The Dalai Lama ~
Sometimes it takes a foreign eye to see exactly what you have. The following is a true story: I come from a totally secular Israeli home. By secular I mean atheist. We held no religious beliefs at all, and no Jewish traditions and practices were kept. Yom Kippur was ignored, and I didn't even celebrate my bar mitzvah. When I was 16 I began to search for some kind of meaning to life, although at the time I didn't call it that since I didn't realize what I was doing. I liked rebels and I started hanging out with all kinds of different people. I dressed and acted like a kind of hippie, and caused no end of embarrassment to my parents. I didn't believe in anything. I roamed around the country with all the strange characters who were my friends. I could fill a book with my adventures from then. At the age of 21, I packed my bags and set off for India to look for truth. In my quest for meaning, there was no commune or ashram that I did not visit. I got to know many gurus personally. Only someone who has spent t ...

"Train yourself to take in what is going well and to view the rest w wise detachment" Dalai Lama
When my father died it was such an uplifting experience. This may sound strange, as most people want to be angry or grieve at the death of a family member. I felt none of this and I had a wonderfully close relationship with my father. I owe a big part of my feelings to HH Dalai Lama. His presence alone imparts great kindness, clarity, and insight and I found myself fortunate enough to be in his company with the turning of this event. HHDL knows exactly how to reach out and comfort with a touch, a word, and laughter. At the time, watching his Tibetan monks make an elaborate sand mandala helped demonstrate the impermanence of this life. According to the monks who create it, the Kalachakra Sand Mandala, also known as the "Wheel of Time," imparts peace and healing to all beings and to the planet.

Insight from the Dalai Lama: If you help others with sincere motivation and sincere concern, that will bring you more fortune, more friends, more smiles, and more success. If you forget about others' rights and neglect others' welfare, ultimately you will be very lonely.
14th Dalai Lama says .. Tibetans have to think very carefully on protesting in exile .. more the Tibetans protest in exile more the situation gets worse for Tibetans in Tibet .
As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.. We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness. Dalai Lama.

Don't let the behavior of others ruin your inner peace! ~ Dalai Lama
French President Francois Hollande, who is in China to meet his counterpart Xi Xingping, has said his talks touched upon Beijing’s human rights record. Nearly 100 Tibetan monks have set themselves on fire since 2009, after calling for religious freedom and the return of their exiled leader the Dalai Lama. Hollande said the recent self-immolations “created some legitimate emotion,” adding: “Regarding human rights and democratic principles, they are both part of the dialogue that we are having. It should not be seen as an obligation, we should simply put this issue as it should be: as part of frank and respectful political dialogue.” Hollande is travelling with a delegation representing dozens of French businesses on a mission to boost trade amid worsening economic troubles. He is therefore taking a sizeable risk by speaking of Tibet or the country’s human rights record and must tread carefully. Chinese officials have shunned high-level meetings with their British counterparts since Prime Minist ...
"All beings want to live undisturbed in peace and happiness. Therefore, the concept of human rights is universal. It should apply to everyone who experiences pain or pleasure.

"Shanti / Inner Peace" - the definition. From Wikipedia Inner peace (or peace of mind) refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being "at peace" is considered by many to be healthy (homeostasis) and the opposite of being stressed or anxious. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss and happiness. Peace of mind, serenity, and calmness are descriptions of a disposition free from the effects of stress. In some cultures, inner peace is considered a state of consciousness or enlightenment that may be cultivated by various forms of training, such as prayer, meditation, T'ai Chi Ch'uan or yoga, for example. Many spiritual practices refer to this peace as an experience of knowing oneself. Finding inner peace is often associated with traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism. Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, emphasizes the importance of inner peace in the world: "The question of real, las ...

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the United States, most likely in September, but his first foreign trip will be a lot closer to home - to the tiny Himalayan state of Bhutan.Rather than Washington, Beijing or Tokyo, the 63-year-old premier will first visit Bhutan - a landlocked kingdom sandwiched between India and Chinese Tibet that has a population of less than 1 million. PERFECT DECISION- Bhutan maybe a small Kingdom but strategically a VERY IMPORTANT place. The history of Humankind has been a HISTORY OF WAR and Buffer states between two powerful nations have played a CRUCIAL ROLE in winning or losing the war. Nehru, in his quest to become a WORLD LEADER, totally neglected to STRENGTHEN our own borders first. We paid a heavy price for it. We lost a big chunk of Kashmir within a year of independence in 1948.In 1951, we lost our hold in Tibet and since then the Dalai Lama stays here with thousands other refugees, again in 1962, we lost a large part of Ladakh, we could not consolidate our victory ov ...
