When asked about Trump’s racism – the 14th Dalai Lama laughed and said he was unconcerned.
The idea of a Buddhist flag is tantamount to Buddhist terrorism in as much as it symbolises the alignment of Buddhism with the modern, capitalist State, and signifies a disturbing trend of replacing Buddhist philosophy with the ideology of greed. This is a false Buddhism that ‘normalises’ suffering in the mind and body of the masses. In fact it is not ‘Buddhism’ at all, but rather a superficial mirage in saffron robes.
A Buddhist – whether monastic or lay – is a true revolutionary committed to uprooting the basis of deluded society in the mind, body and environment. This pragmatic Buddhist approach parallels the Scientific Socialism of Marxist-Engelism and Marxist-Leninism – and Buddhists are advised to study these teachings in all their manifestations (including Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong) as an important step in transforming the modern world for the better.
