    I’m glade you had fun, oh England owes America 40 trillion. So does Israel. We allow them to pay us back. The future paying us back looks much better than imposing sanctions that really make life more difficult. Time will tell weather England and Israel pay the world back. They make nothing we need here in America. Remember Adolph found the same thing, they are cheating in banking. Adolph handled poorly. We say “ we don’t like the way they count “.

      He was talking like Dalai is really a Holy God. Well he is a human, which means he has desire, he knows the politics. Therefore you can't just say his version of the Panchen Lama is the "right" choice. In fact it never was. The whole reincarnation things are only a set of rules in human politics games.

      Because right now the government of People's Republic of China is managing Tibet. There is no way to expect liberalism missionaries to say anything good on China though CPC liberated serfs, built roads and hospitals etc in Tibet and greatly increase the life expectancy of the people in Tibet. Dalai was one of the vice chairmen of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. "Fled out of China in the fear of being killed by Chinese government" was basically an excuse for his treason to his county.

      There are cases of religious leaders taking advantage of their believers trust and ask them for money or sex or killing someone else or suicide. Dalai himself was belived to be relatively gentle on the political issue with Chinese government, but his radical followers can act in the name of him and make influence of Buddhism believers.

One thing I'll say for the Buddhists though, at least they have a sense of humor. That's where Christianity and Islam have a big problem.

    • Junyuan Ma
      Junyuan Ma 8 часов назад

      There are cases in American that young kids were questioned by adults and make testimonies of teing sexually abused but in fact never happened. Google "Day-care sex-abuse hysteria" and "McMartin preschool trial".Young kids have no resistence in front of adults orders or hints. Imitation is the nature of their age. If you read some psychology, you will not be surprised. You mentioned that the present Dalai called the name of the previous one's staff. There are plenty of ways to do it, you just prefer the supernatural one. I don't even need to mention that if you place several things in front of your kid, sooner or later he/she will take one to play. If the chosen kids happened to play the "right" one, he is believed to have a connection with the previous one. Interesting. Remember that the position of Dalai meant political power in those days. Tibet had no "democratic" system that monitor the process, so they can do anything in the dark. Even in modern times there are dozens of countries who has bad practice of this democracy.
      In 1791, there was an invasion into Tibet by Gurkha. China sent central government's army and defeat Gurkha. After the war Chinese Emperor found that Gurkha got help from a high rank monk in another branch of Tibetan Buddhism. This monk was the brother of 6th Panchen Lama and a Hotogtu (a high rank monk just below Dalai and Panchen). They also had a sister who was a female Lama. Is that just a conincidence that all these living Buddhas were "born" in the same family? Chinese Emperor sent officials to investigate. He found that the reincarnation was determined by high rank wizards prophecy. These wizards were believed to be powerful and able to do many supernatural things. But you know, just like modern priests with sex scandals, those wizards were also humans who have desires. Big families bribed them so that their families have connection in the religious section, which controled people's thoughts. The wizards were asked to play their tricks in front of officials from the central government. They played things such as being possessed by gods. (Later in Taiping Tianguo movement, the leaders claimed they believed in Christianity. The 2nd boss played a trick that he was possessed by the Chiristian God and tell the rest of their army to stay under the leadership of the highest boss. Is that even Chrestianity? Just typical Chinese superstition. We Chinese have seen lots of these things in history.) The official from the central government asked wizards to play tricks of putting swords into the mouth and using swords to cut themselves, the power the wizards were believed to have. The wizards said they couldn't do it but their dead masters (teachers) could. We both know that they were man made tricks. After that, Chinese Emperor made rules to manage the reincarnation in Tibet. The traitor Lama's reincarnation was forbidden by the Emperor. Wizards were forbidden to make predictions in important affairs such as reincarnation, but they were allowed to continue their tricks in minor affairs, because their power were deeply belived in Tibet. The reincarnation process was also required to be put under the monitor of central government. Central government gave Tibet a gold bottle with Han, Man and Tibetan language on it. In the last stage of choosing the new Lama, the bottle is used for ballot, no longer human wizards' prophecy.
      Like you said, the "reincarnation" is not a magic spell, but it was the 14th Dalai Lama who did it like a magic spell in the case of the reincarnation of Panchen Lama. Dalai had been out of Tibet for decades, how could he complete such a complicated prceedure? Ah! He had connections in Tibet. Right! That means he only heard his men talking about it, so he can believe them? There were even more steps that could go wrong.

    • weird nerd
      weird nerd 16 часов назад +1

      it is not a magical spell that correctly identifies the exact person who is the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. there is a lot of processes that you into recognising the new lama. From the information, omens and indications that the recognising lama has, they will find the individuals who could possibly be the new Dalai Lama. and then they test the child to see if they are the Dalai Lama.
      the current Dalai Lama also chose the correct rosary and belongings of the previous Dalai Lama from a bunch of similar looking objects.this may seem like coincidence. However, he also called one of the staffs of the previous Dalai Lama by his name when he saw him even though he had never met or heard of him before.i don't know how one can explain that. and if you did research on it, there were many other signs that indicated that he was the reincarnation. I would like it if you would read about of it if it seemed confusing or eccentric rather than being outright disrespectful..
      now, you are in your full right to not believe this and think this is a load of nonsense but I hope you would be sensitive and polite while you voice your opinion because it is a religion and concerns a lot of people.

      +Junyuan Ma again, you really just don’t know what you’re talking about and are straying the argument far, far away from reincarnation. And yes, the Chinese government completely overtook Tibet with the goal of outlawing religion and spreading communism. I know exactly what happened because our teacher, gelek rimpoche, grew up with the Dalai Lama and escaped Tibet with him. You keep avoiding actually talking about why you don’t believe in reincarnation. It’s like in the daily show when Trevor asked Tomi Lahren what she thought was a good form of peaceful protest and she didn’t answer the question for the entire interview and kept dodging the question. Your ideas about Tibet and China are warped by what your government wants you to believe. You never had to endure all the pain and killings that the Chinese government caused to Tibet. Whereas I’ve had first-hand accounts from someone who was actually there.

    • Junyuan Ma
      Junyuan Ma 4 дня назад

      And by the way, Tibetan Buddhism is technically a mixture of a little Buddhism and Bon, a bloody religion that was quite close to Shamanism. I'm not expecting you believing the same Buddhism as Dalai represented. He talked about love and peace just because in western world these are things that never went wrong.

    • Junyuan Ma
      Junyuan Ma 4 дня назад

      Here you talked about how Dalai Lama appointed a boy as 11th Panchen Lama, and you or the one you replied to tried to use this to accuse Chinese government for somehow violating a religion. I just skipped the part that Dalai and Panchen were selected by a ballot ceremony according to rules made centuries ago long before CPC was founded. I just told you that Dalai, a human, assigning anybody to be Panchen doesn't make some spritual things move from one body to the other. However you just machanically learn conclusions and cannot use what you learnt to help you make humanly judgements. You should know that chemistry fomula makes two clear solutions into tubid. That is a phenomenon, just like your reincanation boy. If you know nothing about chemistry, you just call it amazing, like what we did in Grade 4. If some priest or wizard play this tricks and they manipulate it well, you will be convinced that God gave them the power so that they can control the colour of the water. Same logic on Dalai's choice of Panchen. He is just human.

    To be fair, just like ghandi approved of the caste system in India, one of the most fucked up class systems on the planet damning familys to poverty for generations based on past lives. Brutally racist towards blacks, and cuddled with little girls.. Noone is perfect.
    And the dalai llama when he was actually in power had the civilians serve him on hand and foot, living like an emperor and defenitely had some messed up punishments.
    Granted, he was really young and he didn't create that system, and has been nothing but benevolent since then so he's still an amazing individual worthy of respect. Ghandi was great and did a lot of good against imperialism but as a man left a lot to be desired.
    That's also not mentioning mother Theresa, who was definitely just straight up full of shit, she let people suffer and die because she believed it made them closer to her god, when they could have had care and help.
    plus she took a shit ton of money from horrific despots like baby doc, but I mean that's just part of the morally bankrupt Catholic church that protects pedophiles so that's just a given.

I vaguely knew Chinese government did things wrong in Tibet, and yet I am eager to know the truth. It makes me more suspicious about the fled spiritual leader after watching this video. He absolutely knows how powerful he is in Tibet, and he just watched those self-immolations happen again and again. His explanation on that matter doesn’t convince me at all. It seems to me those self- immolated people were sacrificed for the greediness of some people.

    but it is rooted in one simple need... i.e keep indias grubby hands of chinas water supply.
    Tibet is militariliy vital there is just no way around that... it will never be able to defend itself militarily so either it would belong to china or india...
    and china cant have that because all water comes from tibet... there is just no way china would ever accept india having its grubby little hands on chinas water faucet...
    Tibetans can set them selves on fire as much as they want... there is just no way they will ever even consive of the notion of allowing a free tibet.

    People take popular stands without researching into the detail of Tibet. 15 mins of googling show before China invasion, there was judicial mutilation and slavery in Tibet. Today, Tibetan have more privilege than people in the mainland. They have government subsidy income more than the average income of a worker, healthcare system, education system. And yet people believe Tibetan supposed to abolish the government go back to trust a religious leader who bio sounded more like the movie air blender?
    Tibet had been part of China as 1200. If China were to give up Tibet, then USA should give up hawaiian, puerto rico, and maybe the main land and go back to england.

      it is hopeless to communicate with these people but try we must. I have talked to a lot of them and they all say the same thing; "Dalai Lama is a separatist", "he enslaved people" and "tibetans are well treated and have extra points or reserved seats for education". it is blatantly obvious that they are fed this narrative. they seem to have no opinion of their own and are all spewing the same thing almost word to word. I sometimes cannot believe the ridiculous things that comes out of their mouths. if they ever held a totaelly-notone-sided history book, they'd know that the thirteenth and fourteenth Dalai Lama both made efforts and changes to the pre-existing law to gradually make the society more equal.
      and in history, the Tibetan king Songtsen Gampo once invaded parts of china and Mongolia was also briefly invaded by Tibetan kings at some point; that does not mean china or Mongolia is a part of tibet exactly how it doesn't mean that tibet is a part of china. after the kings, when religious leaders ruled tibet, they were greatly respected by Mongolia and china. a depiction of a meeting between Chinese and Tibetan leaders also showed one of the previously Dalai Lamas (I think it is the 5th) sitting on a higher seat than the rest but China went as far as to fabricate that painting to make it seem the Dalai Lama was on a lower seat and that it somehow meant he was under their authority.
      I have a lot more to say but it will probably fall on deaf ears so I will just stop

      +alan Yung “you act like you know” yeah I know because I grew up with Tibetans... so yeah. Also OF COURSE THE MONKS LEFT TIBET if they didn’t they would DIE. Also, big whoop maybe they get extra points on a test or something or get a small scholarship for colleges. That will never make up for the FACT that China stripped away their rights and killed hundreds of thousands of Tibetans.

      What are you talking about lol? Tibet has been China since the Yuan Dynasty. Tibet gets extra points on standard exams, allow to have 2 child and monetary subsidies. I don't know why you say they don't. You act like you know. Tibetan do live in Tibet. Is the monks who riot left. Tibetan monks went on the street and stab people.

      alan Yung every single country in the world has had slavery and extreme problems like such in the world. Even when slaves were being imported from Africa, some families didn't put up a fight, they just sold their relatives. Tibet was never "a part" of china. It was its own country and china completely took it over, not just the nation of Tibet, but they strived to eradicate their religion and control the people. Tibetans are not privileged. In fact, there aren't even that many tibetans in the world currently because of china's control and murder over the years. Also, the Dalai Lama didn't just save his own skin, he led many many people to safety out of Tibet when china first began using violence against them.

    Just fact check: It was not as simple as what john described about the incarnation issues. Panchen Lama died in 1989, and the Chinese government approved a search committee to be headed by Chadrel Rinpoche, a very respectable abbot. Chadrel made a list of 6 children, and secretly asked for Dalai Lama's advice before making the decision. Dalai asked a journalist to film the process of him choosing one of them, and planned to released the film if the Chinese government picked a different boy. But Dalai broke his promise to Chadrel before the decision was announced by the Chinese government. And Chadrel was sent to jail for 6 years. Then the Chinese government chose another boy among the six. So I would not say which one is real or fake.

    I had ever been to Tibet for more than 2 month. I talked to the local people, so I’d say I do not like Dalai lama. He made people so religious, when one woman got cancer, her family do not set her to hospital, which are very cheap for locals, they use the gold to make budda praying for being better instead of going to the hospital! They are also so religious that they believe they should not get education, and if they suffer now, they could get better life in the next life.
    I guess when people heard the word ‘freedom’ from Dalai Lama, and they are far away from what they are judging about, they just could not get enough info to see the whole picture.
