Dalai Lama, please give religious freedom
(This article is just my personal point of view. Before I go any further, if you don’t want to read this, I really don’t mind. I’ll only write one article on it, and then I will go back to our usual fare. I know some of you are fans of the Dalai Lama and will want to unsubscribe, and I am sincerely sorry about that, but I understand. Before you do, though, please know that I have nothing against…
"I have looked into all the Dalai Lama’s speeches and their refutations in detail in the past, as have many others, including wise and learned scholars, Yogis and Buddhist masters; and you can find the debates all over the Internet. But why I and many others are protesting comes down, I think, to something very simple that everyone can understand. We are standing up for the fundamental human right to defend ourselves against slander and to have the freedom to practice whatever religion we choose. Seen from the perspective of compassion, the maze of arcane reasoning and obscure religious history doesn’t seem so complicated. We are simply asking for freedom. It is not really that complicated at all.”
I do ask all of my followers and Kadampa Life’s followers not to unfollow us as a knee-jerk reaction to these posts you may have seen recently, but to please read her blog article with an open mind. I know this is confusing and shocking to many, but it is something that we have to deal with regularly. Thank you all.
