DALAI LAMA TELLS HE HAD BEEN WARNED OF A PLOT TO POISON HIM BY WOMEN
Onlanka News – By Walter Jayawardhana
The Dalai Lama has told London’s Sunday Telegraph newspaper that he fears Chinese agents are training Tibetan women with poisoned hair and scarf to kill him in the guise of seeking blessings from him.
From inside Tibet the exiled spiritual leader had been passed reports warning about the plot he has told the Sunday newspaper.
“The 76-year-old Nobel laureate said he now lives in a high security cordon in his temple palace grounds in Dharamsala, in the Himalayan foothills, on the advice of Indian security officials.
His aides had not been able to confirm the reports, but had recommended his need for high security, the Dalai Lama said.
“We received some sort of information from Tibet,” he said. “Some Chinese agents training some Tibetans, especially women, you see, using poison – the hair poisoned, and the scarf poisoned – they were supposed to seek blessing from me, and my hand touch.”
Despite being one of the world’s most widely revered spiritual leaders he has enemies in China and among some Buddhist sects.
The relationship between China and the Tibetan government-in-exile in India remains poor and mutual suspicion is high following more than 30 self-immolations in the last year by Tibetans in protest against Chinese moves to marginalise their language and culture.
The Dalai Lama said suspicion of Chinese interference in the search for his reincarnation after his death meant he could be the last Dalai Lama. A number of young Buddhist monks, including the Karmapa Lama, could emerge as the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, he told the paper.
He added that he believed China would change its hardline stance within his lifetime and adopt democratic reforms to safeguard Tibet’s economic growth.
He said the Chinese should use Buddhist logic to overcome their anger, but admitted he sometimes struggled to control his own temper.
He said: “Advisers, secretaries, other people around me, when they make some little, little mistake, then sometimes I burst. Oh yes! Anger and shout! Oh! And some harsh words. But that remains a few minutes, then finished.”
Although he sometimes regretted such behaviour, he believed it was occasionally good for “correction”, he said.”
Real Buddhists will never fear with death. If anything going to happen the GOD will help to protect. If Dalai Lama is worrying then he can’t be real Buddhist. Anyway monks are prohibited from women so don’t required to take them near.
If this D. Lama was a genuine monk, then he is not allowed to touch or be close to women at all. It’s prohibited in monks discipline & could be lead to cancelation of ones monkhood.
Today the yellow robe only misuse people to do whatever they want in the name of Buddhism. There’s Nothing to do with Buddhism in those cases…!
I fully agree with Amden. This “God” is very close to women. I have met may who have had experiences with this “God”. No wonder he fears them. The truth, like the monk in London, will come out one day.
“D-La” is better to be in a “La… Hotel” to entertain western guests saying laa.. laa..!
The Stupid Abusers & destroyers of pure Buddhism..!
I feel really very sad about these comments. You are belittling another Buddhist spiritual leader in the world.
His Holiness Dalai Lama has been respected through out the world. He is not earning money. He has learned Buddhist philosophy in depth. He is not himself claiming a good but as a human being. Others question him whether he is a god. How many Sri Lankan Buddhist monks earn money ?
Touching ladies in the day time is not a big problem.
He is delivering his advice in practical way. He know well Buddhist philosophy and to certain level science.
But what is to do ? These comments say what the commentators are.
“Touching ladies in the day time isn’t a big problem”
what’s the deference of a touch whether it is in day or night..? very well…! Basnayake…
That’s enough of your knowledge of Buddhism & monkhood. Have a common sense before the Buddhism…..
You mind that the touching females is a biggest fault of monk discipline which leads to investigation & punishment. The faults above that are definitly cancel the monkhood for life time.
Touching money is a medium fault which can be corrected by expressing.
This D. La may have learned any philosophy but not the teachings of Buddha. His character isn’t complying with monkhood although people go after him. How many people went after the “sun god” Praba & is that mean he was a god..? Bull Shit Gods…!!! Several of such gods may come out when it kicked to a bush…! Those gods only end up in the hell..!
But only your last saying is true that these comments say what the commentators are… That’s true…!
Touching is touching whether at day or night. It’s prohibited for monks to touch females. That’s Buddhas pure teaching & not a philosophy. D-la & others who Ignore it aren’t real followers of Buddhism.
what’s the “spirit” of a one who afraid to die while being 76yrs old..? A Follower of real Buddhism, never afraid to die..!
I surprise why this website let a person called Amden to publish his/her mad ideas. He/she has very serious mental problem I think. He seriously blamed Muslim people and and criticized their culture (not eating pork)last days.
His Holiness Dalai Lama delivered his speeches at University of Standford, an Ivy league university and university of San Diego etc. Many Indians respected him and became Buddhists.
Why these burgers humiliate and criticize HH Dalai Lama. I think these comments are disgrace to Sri Lanka.
You live happily in Ivy League land and leave us alone. We in Sri Lanka, yearn to pratise pure forms of Buddhism as postulated by Amden.
You may call Amden an “extremist”. What he seeks to dispense is raw truth and truth adulterated by western values.
How dare you call Amden “mad man”. By regularly reading Amden’s contributions in Onlanka, I have found solace in my otherwise troubled life. I shall follow Amden towards “Nibbabana”.
Basa, you continue living in that culturally adulterated USA and be happy if you can amidst all the immorality, alcohol and drugs.
Everyone who get understand the Buddhas pure teachings become surprsed. Because no one has known the TRUTH before hearing Dhamma.
This Busnayaka has not touched the great buddhism being a miserable srilankan & bearing a sinhala name too is the real disgrace to srilanka. You may have a Blind Faith of D-la without reasoning & you failed to understand what i said above. You’re the real Mad one who has no sense of whats good & bad. That’s why you justifies D-La’s woman touching. The man who touches woman will never be a holly one. What you mean by his holiness..? Holiness of his yellow robe..? Even it’s also become filthy with his sweat.!
The Monk discipline is available at book shops which anyone can use to know the above facts & which not complies D-la.
Delivering speeches in universities or having degrees of universities Doesn’t make someone a Buddhist. How many speeches may have given to the whole Germany by Adolf Hitler who involved in killing millions..?
The majority people who say that they’re “Buddhists” are going astray. World is going upside down today (okkoma kanapita). This situation predicted by Buddha & has mentioned in Dhamma. Ones who not learned enough dhamma, like Basnayaka are going astray is not a surprise at all.
Fault is a fault despite the doers being Muslim or christian or buddhist. Killing a living being is a SIN & evil act which is harmful for self & others. Because no one has right to cause others to suffering. That’s Wrong & not acceptable, No decent one can resist that simple theory. So the practise of killing pigs & cows of christians & muslims are wrong & harmful for the world. They become evil doers by doing so.
The facts i say are in dhamma & can see by anyone who want to learn Buddhas pure teachings.
Your interest towards Nibbana is great & happy to know within the miserable folk who going astray like grasshoppers to candle flame.
Even just having such interset of Nibbana is invaluable & extremely beneficial than seeking of blind blessings from misleaders covered themselves by robes. Unfortunatly there seems no living leaders to lead us towards that ultimate freedom of Nibbana today. Only we’ve is the writings of dhamma of buddha which brought forward since the past by our Real Holly Heroic Monks of srilanka.
So, i’m hardly exercising alone those pure teachings of buddha since long time & progressing still.
I’d like to mention the part of real single brief advice given by Buddha on request of Gothami (his mother/nurse) that’s;
“If you know anything which causes Attachment(worldly passion) then you mind
that it’s not Dhamma, it’s Vinaya(Discipline) which you should have” – and –
“If you know anything which causes detachment(worldly) then you mind
that, it’s Dhamma, it’s Vinaya(Discipline) which you should have”
I am living in Sri Lanka, not in Ivy league land but I listened to you-tube videos of HH.Dalai Lama’s speeches.. You assume me I live in Ivy league land(I think you don’t know the term ‘Ivy league’) which says your level of scholarship.But I understand you and Amden practicing very pure Buddhism. Amden criticized Muslim people taking their cultural and religious practice, not eating pork in this website. They are very sensitive issues, not to discuss.
All Sri Lankans, I think, respect to late Mr.Kadir Gamar for his contributions to our country but you……?. That is why government constructed a center in his name.
This is the mentality of these scholars. His Holiness Dalai Lama does not touch ladies as a practice but in some times occasionally as ladies want it to do for healing.( Any one can listen and see his speeches in youtube.)
If you are practicing so pure Buddhism, you should be priests perhaps !.
I need to say many things more clearly. If so, I will be going against my country and Buddhism. But I don’t like to fall in your basket Kusuma.
His Holiness Dalai Lama has been respected through out the world. That does not mean any challenge or damage for Buddhism in Sri Lanka but a reputation and recognition. But I feel these people Kusuma and Amden understand this as a challenge to Buddhism in Sri Lanka !.
Many people have condemned Amden’s comments in this website. Some people wrote ‘Amden barking’. But Kusuma says his contributions. May be you know each other.
Kusuma and Amden , I don’t read and make any comments for your comments again.
Because I have no enough knowledge to understand your comments !.
Are you discriminating HH.Dalai Lama according to your pure Buddhist practice ? HH.Dalia Lama is not challenging the Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka or somewhere else. Kusuma follows Amden to attain Nibbana(I shall follow Amden towards “Nibbabana”). Yes, I hear in NETH FM program Balumgala about many varieties of Buddhism in our country Sri Lanka.
I am very sad !.
Be cool & hang on.! You’ve confused & mixed up with Dalai. Lama/ u tube/ Ive league/ many people/ pork eating people/ FM channels/ balumgala & more endless, useless things. This’s not a wander in present time when people become damaged & when dhamma is disappearing.
I know what you mean above that the main situation in sl is also worst. The evil mad monk who made the false birth certificate to the Buddha by saying that “The Buddha was born here” is also from sl. And most of monks destroying buddhism here in every way they can. Some of them seeking pork, beef, chicken, drink, sex & much more things. Dalai lama may be million times better than those ones. He may have an invisible power & you may have faith of him too. But that’s not what Buddha said.
The Great Buddhism is not responsible for this ruinous sitation. Still the pure dhamma is there without using though the above evil flow is on it’s way.
I’ve already devoted my life to apply this pure teachings of buddha. In my experience it seems that no one is doing what Buddha said.
If you follow buddhism then first make it clear what’s your Aim of following. If you satisfied with Blessings of someone as a buddhist then it’s ok & you’ll have result of it. But there’re higher goals than blessings in buddhism.
And it doesn’t mean my comments are wrong as they condemned by many people. For instance if i go into the gang of dogs then many dogs might bark at me except decent dogs. But it’s normal behaviour of dogs & not my fault.
Then i know Kusuma only in these writings & that’s it. But i will be steady even if the whole world come against me while i be in Dhamma. “Dhamma will protect who are in Dhamma” & no need high security as for dalai lama. But my mind has developed so far to face death though less than 50yrs now, unlike dalai lama.
Who’re the more between Ants & Humans in this world..? Ants are more..!
But who’re wise between ants & humans..?
Humans are wise.!
In same way, the fools are more in this world & very few are wise enough to understand things as they are…!
-Be a one of few Wise people & not a one of many Fool people-
-There’s no one who only be condemned or who only be praised-
even the Buddha was condemned by some blind fools who couldn’t understand the perfection & greatness of the Buddha…!
