The 14th Dalai Lama has collaborated with the political forces of US capitalism since at least the late 1940’s, but this evolved out of his friendship with the Nazi war criminal (and friend of Adolf Hitler) Heinrich Harrer, who had escaped from a British internment camp in India during WWII. He stayed in Tibet until 1952 – when he was contacted by the CIA and co-opted into its attempted programme to destabilise the Communist Chinese regime, through a thorough and complex disinformation campaign that exists to this day, and which is premised upon Eurocentric racist attitudes toward China. In this respect, the 14th Dalai Lama has empowered the racism of the West that previously motivated and justified the most brutal campaign of European invasion, domination, degradation and destruction of China. Instead of anti-Chinese racism being checked and neutralised in the modern world, the 14th Dalai Lama – through his fabricated and misleadingly entitled ‘Pro-Tibetan Movement’ – has at the sametime, destroyed his historical position within genuine Tibetan culture, misrepresented Tibetan culture and history, and exchanged an austere life as a Buddhist monk in the Tibetan part of China, for a fully extravagant and bourgeois lifestyle in the West (involving five star hotels, limos, bodyguards, celebrity friends, and the eating of meat, etc). The 14th Dalai Lama, through his clique of Western lamas, teaches a form of distorted (and Christianised) Tibetan Buddhism, for which they charge substantial fees (a transaction out-lawed within genuine Buddhist practise). More to the point, these pampered and corrupt lamas living in the West, follow a script approved by the 14th Dalai Lama, which misrepresents Chinese history and culture, and presents such entities to the West in an incorrect and untruthful manner.
In the West, where anti-Chinese racism abounds, Chinese martial arts are often misrepresented by many of the people who claim to be practising them. Much of the time this is due to a lack of genuine knowledge and good instruction. However, the internal art of Taijiquan is a very advanced and progressive understanding of human perceptual psychology and bio-mechanics. Like its Russian counter-part of Systema, Taijiquan teaches the development of the awareness of bodyweight and how the bodyweight ‘drops’ into the ground (rooting the practitioner) through a permanent and dynamically ‘aligned’ posture (i.e. bones and joints). As every action has an opposite and equal reaction, the dropped bodyweight ‘rebounds’ backup through the bones and joints where it is emitted through the required anatomical weapon (such as a single knuckle). This is relaxed hitting with maximum bodyweight – and once mastered, is very effective in combat – because this method of striking is highly condensed and passes through the outer structures of the body and disrupts the neural network, creating confusion in the mind of the unsuspecting opponent, and the temporary ‘failure’ of the ability to stand properly or generate enough power to retaliate. A Taijiquan master has the ability to take away the opponent’s ability to retaliate. Incoming power from the opponent is either deflected by the ‘rounded’ bones and joints, or absorbed and harmlessly dispersed through the body structure. This is what ‘Chinese’ Taijiquan is designed to do and many never master it.
Lama Dondrup Dorje, in the above video is following the typical Pro-Tibetan Movement imperative of continuously misrepresenting Chinese culture, and brain-washing Westerners into following nonsense and believing in religiously inspired mythology. None of this Lama Dondrup Dorje expression is real. Within authentic Chinese culture, qi translates as ‘breath’, that is all. Within the body, qi flows through the blood as oxygen, and is augmented by bio-electric energy, and the energy provided by the digestive system. Within combat training, bodyweight is added to the mix, and all this is brought together by an advanced state of psychological awareness. Taijiquan is effective because the opponent must be ‘touched’, and that there is no such thing as ‘no touch’ fighting. Just as the West blindly follows the corrupt 14th Dalai Lama’s interpretation of history, non-Chinese people fall for what Lama Dondrup Dorje is teaching. The people in this video are the victims of a ‘cult’ mentality, as are all those who ‘believe’ in the ‘Pro-Tibetan Movement’ in general. These people are brain-washed to act in a manner that Lama Dondrup Dorje requires for him to award them with praise and congratulations. How crazy all this seems from a genuine Chinese cultural perspective, particularly as Lama Dondrup Dorje is exhibiting the very ‘inverted’ and ‘deluded’ mind-set that both the Buddha and Marx stated was negative for the healthy evolution of humanity. Lama Dondrup Dorje and his misled ‘Taijiquan’ students, represent delusion in action, and displays how suitably motivated individuals can throw themselves around a padded floor, if the psycho-physical climate requires it.
