Translator’s Note: The Communist Party of China (CPC) pursues (in the name of the people) a clear Marxist-Leninist (Maoist) path of socio-economic development, in the ongoing development of Socialism in China. It does not endorse or pursue any religious or spiritual paths, but upholds the Constitutional Right of every individual person living in China to pursue (or not to pursue) a religious or spiritual path, purely as a private matter of personal interest. Therefore, the Tibetan ethnic community living in the Autonomous Region of Tibet (and elsewhere in China), possesses a right to pursue the teachings of historical Tibetan Buddhism (or not), and the CPC considers it its duty to ensure that the material conditions are present for this Constitutional Right to be correctly applied within Socialist society. As a private, personal pursuit, religions and spiritual groups have no need for political power, or to interfere with the processes of secular politics (as the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique continuously try to do in China). As a consequence, to protect the Tibetan and Han Chinese people from the corruption of the 14th Dalai Lama, (and other similarly corrupt individuals in the service of the US), the CPC has initiated the ‘Living Buddha’ Project, whereby each practising Buddhist of advanced age (and known disciplined existence), will be assessed and officially recognised for their life-time of peaceful devotion to a non-violent path, and loyalty to Mainland China. The CPC-recognised category of ‘Living Buddha’ does not imply any recognition of ‘mysticism’ or ‘theistic’ states, but is simply the acknowledgement that some advanced Buddhist practitioners have attained a calm and peaceful mind within a disciplined body.

The 14th Dalai Lama sits in the centre of a huge multi-million dollar business venture in the West (which also extends into certain parts of Asia). Although ostensibly a humble Buddhist monk who has taken vows of simplicity and poverty, the 14th Dalai Lama generates a substantial income from ‘selling’ the Buddha’s teachings (which were originally given ‘free of charge’ to humanity in ancient India), in book, CD and DVD formats, as well as through numerous ‘paid’ public performances. As with any profitable business, the 14th Dalai Lama’s public image is very important to him (and the people who surround him – i.e. his ‘business advisors’). This is because the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique manufacture a fabricated history and culture of the Tibetan region of Mainland China, and misrepresent Tibet Buddhism, all in the name of supporting US foreign policy, and generating a vast financial income. Since defecting to (capitalist) India in 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama has set about (with US assistance) to establish what must be referred to as his ‘brand’, and like any ‘brand’, the professional ‘advertising’ team that surrounds the 14th Dalai Lama is always looking at minimising any risks to his ‘sellability’ in the general market place. Part of his ‘brand’ has been the continuous (decades long) demonization of Mainland China, together with his attempts to infiltrate the Buddhist monasteries of the Tibetan region of Mainland China, and spread his distorted version of CIA-produced pseudo-Buddhism.
Although the 14th Dalai Lama is not popular in Tibet, the Government of China has always been active in building the socio-economic structure of Tibet and preserving and strengthening all aspect of Tibetan culture – including protecting genuine Buddhist lineages and practises. This policy is part of the general ‘Socialist’ reconstruction of China designed to help all people develop to their fullest potentials. In this regard, the Government of China has striven to protect the Tibetan people from the criminality of the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique of corrupt lamas. This type of Buddhism has been generated in the West and has nothing to do with indigenous Tibetan culture. This is why this corruption must not be allowed to infiltrate Tibet or any other parts of Mainland China. However, whilst working to expose the 14th Dalai Lama and his antics, the Government of China is very much supportive of legitimate Tibetan Buddhism and its preservation in the face of this external threat. This is why every lineage of Tibetan Buddhism has been carefully recorded, and its masters and key disciples ‘officially recognised. Those designated ‘Living Buddhas’ have been discretely scrutinised and their status confirmed through Government investigation. This has led to a list being published of those considered to have attained enlightenment, and consequently their status of ‘Living Buddhas’ being confirmed. The 14th Dalai Lama is not on this list because a) his corrupt and worldly behaviour that continuously ‘breaks’ his monastic vows, and b) because he does not reside in Tibet (or any other part of Mainland China). Of course, as soon as this list of ‘Living Buddhas’ was published, the 14th Dalai Lama issued a public statement condemning the announcement, and (without any sense of irony or humility) lamenting the fact that he was not included on this list.
Word from the West suggests that after this announcement the 14th Dalai Lama’s income took a dramatic dive, and he was forced by his share-holders to issue a statement in an attempt to repair the damage to the commercial value of his image. The Government of China has taken this action to eradicate any vestige of ‘false’ Tibetan Buddhism that has infiltrated central and eastern areas of Tibet. Zhu Weiqun (朱维群) – the Director of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference – has stated that part of the money earned by the 14th Dalai Lama is illegally siphoned from his Western banks accounts into Mainland China, and used to perpetuate false teachings, anti-Government propaganda, together with the brain-washing of young (and other vulnerable) people – with some ‘forced’ to set fire to themselves whilst being filmed. Many Westerners also make massive profits from the 14th Dalai Lama’s illicit activities and his Office comes under intense pressure every time his brand suffers a down-turn on the international market. Whilst lying about ‘Human Rights’ in China, the 14th Dalai Lama is personally ordering young people to ‘self-immolate’ in his name, but the problem he has had in recent years is from those who have survived (and been cared for by the Chinese State) – including a number of misguided Westerners – who have admitted they were brain-washed and forced into setting themselves on fire following direct orders from the 14th Dalai Lama. Mainland China is a modern, Socialist State that rejects all forms of separatism, racism and terrorism. Tibet is now a vibrant part of Mainland China, with its people experiencing greatly improved standards of living, literacy and life-expectancy. In short, Socialist Tibet has eradicated the backward and unjust feudal system within which the 14th Dalai Lama was born, and the Tibetan people suffered without end.
Whilst living a life of dishonesty and decadence in the West, the 14th Dalai Lama has acted like a monarch without a throne, using his ‘imagined’ psychic abilities to (falsely) choose ‘reincarnations’ of previously great lamas – even within Western bodies with no cultural connection to Tibet, or Tibetan Buddhism. This has led to allegations of ‘child abuse’ committed by the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique – one example of which involved kidnapping and brain-washing of one Osel Hita Torres who was abducted at just 14 months old when his parents visited India. He is now studying film in Madrid and has denounced the Buddhist order that elevated him to guru status. ‘They took me away from my family and stuck me in a medieval situation in which I suffered a great deal,’ said Torres, 24, describing how he was whisked from obscurity in Granada to a monastery in southern India. ‘It was like living a lie’, he told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo. Records state that between 1980 and 1994, the 14th Dalai Lama personally confirmed ‘214’ Living Buddhas in monasteries and temples across China – with no authority from the Government of China. Many of these declarations have proven ‘false’ and issued as a means to undermine the Government of China. Today, the 14th Dalai Lama is no longer able to act this way in Mainland China – with the Government of China refusing to acknowledge his very worldly mind-set as being ‘enlightened’.
The Communist Party of China (CPC) has taken decisive steps to remedy this bourgeois pollution in our country, and will not tolerate these attempts at infiltrating our Socialist System. People in China are better-off than at any time in history, and are fully supportive of the CPC and stand in opposition to the 14th Dalai Lama and his clique. Chinese Buddhists are reminded that the Constitution of the China Buddhist Association specifically states that Buddhism exists to support the building of Socialism in China, and is an ally in this task. As a consequence of this, people such as ‘Wang Fei’ (王菲 – aka ‘Faye Wang’), Zhao Wei (赵薇), Li Lianjie (李连杰 – aka ‘Jet Li’), and Liang Chaowei (梁朝伟 – aka ‘Tony Leung’) who have donated money and mistakenly associated themselves with various (and potential ‘Living Buddhas’) in an ‘egotistical’ manner, are making an error of interpretation, and confusing the 14th Dalai Lama’s continuous search for profit, with the peaceful and non-worldly existences of truly spiritual men and women in China, who live with no concern for money or interest in the shallowness of those who possess celebrity status. (In this regard, even members of the dangerous Falun Gong Cult have tried to associate themselves with the Pro-Tibetan Movement). In the meantime, the Government of China is striving to constantly update the official list of Living Buddhas – with 870 being in recognised in the first batch. As reliable information becomes available, more names will be verified and added. As Buddhists are generally patient and humble – this process is not a problem. It is ony in the minds of those infected with angst that this process is viewed as deficient. The point is that the time of the 14th Dalai Lama doing what he wants in mainland China is well and truly over.
