From an NKT support web site...
"A few years ago, some monks went to Gaden Monastery Tibet and destroyed the Dorje Shugden statue, the monks were arrested and sentenced with heavy terms, accused of belonging to the Dalai Lama's clique, and disturbing religious freedom (yes, in this case China is adamant about it). A new Dorje Shugden statue was swiftly resurrected and it stands till today, and there is even Chinese PLA (People Liberation Army) watching over the Dorje Shugden chapel in Gaden Monastery Tibet since then, he must be very important to the Chinese, because no other Buddha/protector statue in Tibet (not even Jowo!) get to enjoy this special treatment! A personal PLA bodyguard!!!
Just think, most likely China will choose their own 15th Dalai Lama, and visualize image like the one below being taken "OFFICIALLY" and disseminate all over China and to the world, how impactful it will be..."
China's Panchen Lama, the real one (named according to Tibetan history for hundreds of years in 1985) is missing
The involvement of China is seen by some as a political ploy to try to gain control over the recognition of the next Dalai Lama, and to strengthen their hold over the future of Tibet and its governance. The Panchen Lama bears part of the responsibility for finding the incarnation of the Dalai Lama and vice versa.
They cannot wait for the Dalai Lama to die, longing for China's appointment of the next Dalai Lama to demean Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism once again.
About the recent traffic death of the Dalai Lama's nephew, an NKT supporter wrote...
"What kind of karma is that for Jigme Norbu to have a fatal accident on the first leg of this trip. It indicates the futility of the Tibet freedom campaign."
Predictably, when the Dalai Lama dies, NKT followers will celebrate boastfully and move to strengthen their cooperation with China against Tibet.
Other NKT supporters write...
"China has laid their own plans to ensure that they are in control of everything - even reincarnation - to stop the return of any High Lama that is against them or will be against them - notably, HH the Dalai Lama."
"I think the Tibetans are not politically mature for democracy, in which their devotion to His Holiness the Dalai Lama is that of one to a spiritual head/ God-like being, and not a head of state."
"I think most Tibetans are uneducated and when they hear of this ban (regarding Shugden), they take it as the supreme edict of Chenrezig himself. They don't ponder, they don't wonder the implications if they threaten a Shugdenpa. After all, they know very little Dharma..."
Recently noted in the Tibet Post...
"London: China is set to announce a new constraint on Buddhist practising in Tibet, with a barring of Buddhist monks outside of China to be recognized as a reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The ban, set to be made law next month would effectively permit the Chinese government to select the future Dalai Lama.
The new law stipulates that Buddhist monks in Tibet must seek permission from Chinese communist regime for reincarnation has been described by Chinese state administration for religious affairs as an important move to "institutionalize management of reincarnation".
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has made it clear in recent months that the next Dalai Lama will be born and receive religious training in a safe and free environment outside of China. As the new law stands, however, it would seem that two Dalai Lama's would emerge, one Communist state backed and the other religiously supported.
This is not the first time the Chinese government has created limitations to reincarnations, in September 2007, the State Administration for Religious Affairs passed a directive stating, "The so-called reincarnated living Buddha without government approval is illegal and invalid." The same law also stated that the 14th Dalai Lama could play no part in the process of seeking and recognizing a living Buddha.
Reacting to the development, de facto Prime Minister of Tibet, Samdhong Rinpoche, has accuses China of, "formulating various methods to finish the two major Tibetan religious institutions-Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama as these two were very important for Tibetans."
"The new Chinese law is nothing but a ploy to take control of Tibetan religious institutions. He said that China was perhaps waiting for the departure of the Dalai Lama as it believed that his departure would resolve the problem of Tibet itself," he added."
