Violation of Privacy of Tibetan Shugden Buddhist Protestors

Please, if you care about human rights and privacy rights, take a minute to read the following information I found out about today. A friend of mine posted the following on Facebook and is working to make as many people aware of this violation of privacy towards Tibetan protestors by the government that should be representing them. They have posted names and in some cases addresses of the protestors on their website where anyone can get this information easily and do whatever they want to with it. This could potentially put the protestors’ lives in danger, as many of the Dalai Lama’s followers are not above resorting to violence against those they disagree with (they’ve attacked several Shugdenpa over the years already). Honestly, this reminds me of the tactics of fundamentalist Christians that create websites specifically to post the names of abortion doctors and their personal information for vigilantes to more easily find and murder those doctors. This is really not so different. My friend’s post:

"I am praying for the safety of the Tibetan protesters who have been listed on the Central Tibetan Authority webpage. Especially for the woman who’s address has been exposed on this webpage. I am also taking action regarding this.

I just wrote an e-mail to all in the CTA contact list. I urge others to do the same!

"I live in a free country where I am allowed freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom to practice religion. These are all things the Dalai Lama claims to support. However, now that I see this webpage, with the address of a woman who is exercising her freedom, I see that the Central Tibetan Authority does not care for people individual freedoms.

We in America are watching you, and if any harm comes to these people caused by ignorant actions of the followers of the Dalai Lama we will report this far and wide.”

Je Tsongkhapa lived in Tibet from 1357 to 1419. When he was born, special signs showed he was Buddha Manjushri appearing in the world again. Later, people understood that he held in his heart the wisdom, compassion and spiritual power of all the Buddhas. Guru Tsongkhapa had miracle powers, but he never used them in public or acted high or special. He was always seen to be humble, showing a perfect example of a Buddhist monk, and giving pure and clear Dharma teachings to help everyone. Through Je Tsongkhapa’s kindness we have Buddha, Dharma and Sangha in our life today. There is no one kinder than our Guru, Je Tsongkhapa!

HAPPY JE TSONGKHAPA DAY!!! Its October 25th and in The New Kadampa Tradition we dedicate this day to Je Tsongkhapa. Je Tsongkhapa was an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, whose appearance in fourteenth-century Tibet as a monk—and the holder of the lineage of pure view and pure deeds—was prophesied by Buddha. He spread a very pure Buddhism throughout Tibet, showing how to combine the practices of Sutra and Tantra, and how to practice pure Dharma during degenerate times. He is the founder of New Kadampa Buddhism.
