Noble Prize Winners – the 14th Dalai Lama & Aung San Suu Kyi

The 14th Dalai Lama collaborated with the Nazi German interest and presence in the Tibetan area of Western China, before, during and after WWII. His thinking is definitely fascistic, hierarchical and domineering. From a historical point of view, he was never the leader of an ‘independent’ Tibet, and is not considered by ordinary Tibetans today, to have any say in the successful Socialist restructuring of this ‘special’ ethnic area of China. The organisation the 14th Dalai Lama controls is the ‘Pro-Tibetan Movement’ which was founded by the American CIA in the 1950’s, and premised upon the Western-terroristic notion associated with the political violence of forced ‘regime change’ – designed exclusively to bring-down the sovereign government of China (an ‘illegal’ act under International Law). This Western-inspired political violence has nothing to do with Buddhism as practised in the Chinese area of Tibet today, but is still used by the 14th Dalai Lama as a means to cause pain and suffering throughout the Pro-Tibetan Movement (and on occasion, within geographical Tibet itself). The Dalai Lama has been responsible for small outbreaks of politically inspired violence in Tibet, and on occasion, has been the direct inspiration for gullible teenagers setting fire to themselves (I have wrote about this elsewhere on this blog). In the 1950’s, so corrupted by CIA promises of temporal political power had the 14th Dalai Lama became, that he was authorising certain communities of misguided ordained Buddhist monks (who had taken vows of complete non-violence), to be trained by CIA Operatives in Tibet in the use of fire-arms with the intention of killing members of the Tibetan Authorities, pro-Chinese Tibetans, mixed marriage groups (between Tibetans and Chinese people – including their children), and any ethnic Chinese people living in Tibet at the time. The point of this genocidal action was to create a political power-base for the US to militarily operate from, with the intention of invading Mainland China and establishing a US-style capitalist State (these historical events have been misrepresented by Hollywood as a ‘fictional’ invasion of ‘Tibet’ by ‘China’ – an event that never happened) . This CIA movement failed due to local Tibetan people fighting back, and through the requested assistance of the Chinese PLA. Following his defeat, the 14th Dalai Lama fled to capitalist-friendly India – but continued to call for terrorist activities to be carried-out on his behalf in the Tibetan area of China.  Today, the 14th Dalai Lama lives the lifestyle of a movie star in the West (together with a cohort of dissident lamas) – being driven around in limousines and staying in 5 star hotels, etc. The Pro-Tibetan Movement – whilst advocating terrorism in China – is falsely portrayed in the West as ‘peaceful’, and this inverted interpretation probably reached the apex of its greatest hypocrisy when the 14th Dalai Lama was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1989 – the year the CIA and the Western media fabricated the ‘Tiananmen Square Incident’ – since revealed as a media fraud by recent Wikileaks revelations.

Tibetan Buddhism is generally of the ‘Vajrayana’ (or ‘Diamond Vehicle’) School, a later development in India containing a number of non-Buddhistic elements, (for instance, within Early Buddhism, there is no notion of ‘reincarnation’, the basis of the ‘myth’ of the 14th Dalai Lama’s ‘imagined’ authority), which has no direct historical or philosophical link with the Theravada Buddhism as practised in Myanmar (and other parts of Asia). Theravada (or ‘Elder Teaching’) School is considered a contemporary expression of one version of a very ‘early’ version of Buddhist thought and practice – premised upon the uprooting of greed, hatred and delusion from the mind, and thereby bringing a complete end to personal suffering generated by volitional karma and rebirth. Although ‘apolitical’ in nature, Buddhism rejects all forms of violence and warfare. This being the case, it is obvious that the 14th Dalai Lama does not follow this ‘peaceful’ teaching, and neither do many branches (i.e. temples or monasteries) of the ordained (i.e. ‘Sangha’) that comprise the Buddhist community in Myanmar (i.e. ‘Burma’).  This is known because it is on record that certain ordained Theravada Buddhist monks in Myanmar, have been expressing race-hate amongst the ordinary (often ‘illiterate’) Burmese people (which has peaked in recent years), aimed at the annihilation of the ‘Rohingya’ predominately Islamic minority (with some being Hindu), which live historically in Western Myanmar. This has led to inter-communal violence between Buddhists and Muslims – with each attacking the other – but obviously with the minority Rohingya being very much at a numerical disadvantage. Ethnic Myanmar Buddhists view the Rohingya as ‘foreign’ interlopers from the Bengal area of India – a phenomenon that may have its historical roots during WWII – where armed pro-British Rohingya’s (i.e. the ‘V Force’) attacked pro-Japanese Burmese Buddhist communities (purportedly carrying-out massacres of Buddhists civilians), as a means to limit Imperial Japan’s influence in the area. The point is that under British colonial rule – many different ethnic people were ‘migrated’ into Burma for labour purposes, but the ethnic Myanmar Authorities today, refuse to recognise the Rohingya minority as being ethnically from ‘Myanmar’. This means that the Rohingya do not possess Myanmar Citizenship, and despite being born (for generations) in Myanmar, are considered as unwelcome ‘immigrants’ or ‘refugees’ in the country of their birth. At the sametime, the modern country of Bangladesh does not accept that the Rohingya as being ethnically ‘Bengali’, and are unwilling to offer citizenship, or commit themselves to long-term plans involving economic aid or cultural assistance.

Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 1991 – two years after her ally – the 14th Dalai Lama. Although purportedly advocating ‘non-violence’, Aung San Suu Kyi  – a committed anti-Socialist and pro-Western capitalist, she has always been surrounded by supporters who have been perfectly happy to resort to violence to achieve political ends. Indeed, since Aung San Suu Kyi has been released in 2010, she has done very little to assist the Rohingya people – and has even been considered to have endorsed recent Myanmar government crackdowns on the Rohingya community. Ironically, in 2007, ordained Buddhist monks refused to accept food offerings from members of the then totalitarian government (a shocking and karmically significant event for Buddhists), and called for democratic reforms and the instigation of ‘Human Rights’ in Myanmar. It is astonishing to consider that this same community of ordained Buddhist monks (who were attacked and persecuted for taking on the Myanmar government), are now considered at the fore-front of anti-Rohingya agitation and violence in Myanmar. Like the Noble Peace Prize winner – the 14th Dalai Lama – who continuously advocates violence in China whilst calling for peace in the West, Aung San Suu Kyi  – also a Noble Prize Winner – appears to be condoning governmental and ethnic violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, whilst ‘ignoring’ calls from both within and outside of Myanmar, condemning that country’s treatment of the Rohingya. Of course, just as I refuse to accept that all Muslims are ‘terrorists’ (a common assumption in the Western media today), I do not accept that all Buddhists are ‘terrorists’ – despite the fact that the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi are not particularly ‘good’ examples of practising Buddhists. In Communist China (and Tibet), for example, Buddhism is an important factor in the Building of Socialism in that country. Just as there is no place for ‘terrorism’ in the Holy Qur’an’, there is no place for ‘terrorism’ or ‘race-hate’ anywhere in the thousands of Buddhist scriptures. What is being seen in the duplicitous behaviour of the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi, is the clear manifestation of Bourgeois hypocrisy, and the playing-out of Western race politics. In 2016, in a very much ‘contrived’ meeting designed to further the interests of the ‘sentimentalist’ Western media, the 14th Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi ‘posed’ for photographs together – with the Dalai Lama issuing the usual empty platitudes about ‘tolerance’ and ‘compassion’ (the kind of blurb usually employed to ‘sell’ his distorted books about Buddhism in the West), and Aung San Suu Kyi saying ‘nothing’ of substance about the Rohingya situation – a response that she has well practised of late. It seems that the 14th Dalai Lama ‘tolerates’ everyone except ‘Socialists’ and the Chinese, and that Aung San Suu Kyi also ‘tolerates’ everyone except ‘Socialists’ and the Rohingya.  A better example of two Buddhist hypocrites will difficult to find throughout history, or across the contemporary world!

达赖督促昂山素季缓和佛教徒与罗兴亚穆斯林关系

“缅甸领导人昂山素季有道德上的责任去缓解占多数的佛教徒和少数罗兴亚穆斯林之间的紧张态势”,达赖喇嘛最近再次强调了他的这个观点。

据中国西藏网6月20日报道,“缅甸领导人昂山素季有道德上的责任去缓解占多数的佛教徒和少数罗兴亚穆斯林之间的紧张态势”,达赖喇嘛最近再次强调了他的这个观点。

达赖喇嘛说,他在与昂山素季见面时强调了他的这个想法,后者刚刚在缅甸首次民主选举中当选国务资政,成为实际上掌控缅甸的人。

“她已经获得诺贝尔和平奖了,所以道德上她应该……为缓解佛教界和穆斯林之间的紧张作出努力”,达赖在华盛顿接受路透社采访时说道,“我实际上告诉她,她应该公开地说出来” 。

近几年来,佛教徒和穆斯林之间的暴力冲突为缅甸的“民主改革进程”投下了阴影。维权组织尖锐地批评昂山没有为罗兴亚人的困境公开说话。

在缅甸这个以佛教徒为主的国家,很多人对罗兴亚穆斯林有一种普遍敌视的情绪,其中也包括昂山素季所领导的民盟党内一些人及其支持者。2012年,有100多人在暴力冲突中被杀,大约125,000名罗兴亚穆斯林成为无国籍人士,在帐篷中生活,行动也受到严格限制。

达赖喇嘛说,缅甸的一些佛教徒“看起来似乎对穆斯林有某种消极态度”,有这种想法的佛教徒应该“记住佛祖的脸”。“如果佛祖显灵,他肯定会保护这些穆斯林兄弟姊妹的”,达赖说道。达赖非常喜欢讲类似的话来表达自己的“慈悲”,甚至对IS也表示要“倾听理解和对话”。

昂山素季对达赖的“呼吁”作出了简单的回答:“情况真的很复杂”。

昂山素季在不久前与美国国务卿克里的会面中还称,缅甸需要“足够的空间”来处理罗兴亚人问题,她认为使用“情绪性表达”只会让情况更复杂。

当被问到如何看达赖喇嘛这些评论时,昂山素季的发言人表示,“让国际社会认识到这个问题的敏感性是很重要的。要避免任何使事态恶化的举动,这只会让新政府更难应对”。发言人还表示,昂山素季已经在尽最大的能力解决这个问题了。

因同为“诺奖获得者”,昂山素季与达赖喇嘛曾经走得较近。但由于达赖对缅甸内政的多次插手,以及昂山素季当权后日益亲华的态度,屡次被曝“不和”。

罗兴亚人问题是历史、政治和宗教交织的结果,但无论情况如何,达赖喇嘛都并没有资格置喙。一方面,嘴上谴责“暴力”的他实际是“3·14”事件以及多起藏区自焚案件的幕后人,早被中央定性为“在西藏制造社会动乱的总根源”;另一方面,一直自称只是一个“简单的僧人”的他,竟多次干涉他国政治事务,其虚伪性不证自明。(中国西藏网 文/赵钊)
