Neo-Buddhists step up attack on Dalai Lama • Thursday January 2, 2003

The Times of India, Dec. 31, 2002

Gaya: With less than two weeks left for the beginning of the Kalchakra Pooja, the most important religious ritual of the Mahayana sect of traditional Buddhists, the Bodh Gaya-based Ambedkarites, better known as neo-Buddhists, have stepped up the anti-Dalai Lama campaign and printed material is being distributed against the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile led by HisHoliness.

Earlier, the neo-Buddhists demanded expulsion of the Dalai Lama and Karmapa, the two Tibetan spiritual leaders enjoying Indian hospitality.

The two-page printed material in Hindi captioned Bharat ki bhoomi par gair desh ki sarkar (alien government on Indian soil), questions the very logic behind the decision to allow Dalai Lama to run what was, according to the material being distributed in Bodh Gaya, a CIA-sponsored show from the Indian soil.

The Tibetan governmentin exile, besides receiving American aid to the tune of $107 million per annum, was also being extended financial and other assistance by the CIA in an allegedly questionable manner, said the pamphlet. More importantly, the pamphlet questioned the constitutional validity of the Tibetan government in exile being run from the Indian soil.

The Indian Constitution, according to the pamphlet, does not permit the existence of any other claimant for sovereignty, a privilege exclusively awarded by the Constitution to the Indian state and to no other individual or institution. Dalai Lama, according to the pamphlet, uses the Dewar Zhung, official seal of the Tibetan government. His Holinesss communication is done in the name of the government of Tibet. It recalled that the Dalai Lama was only entitled to a refugee status in India.

The pamphlet quoted from what it claimed to be a confidential report sent by the then chief secretary of Sikkim, Shridhar Rao, to the Union cabinet secretary in May 1997.

According to Raos report, the Chinese government played a prominent role in the installation of Ugyen Trinel Dorje as the head of the Karma sect of Buddhists.

The pamphlet virtually accused Ugyen Trinel Dorje, better known as Karmapa, of being a Chinese stooge planted in India as part of a grand international gameplan.

The pamphlet alleged Ab Dalai Lama ki nazar Sikkim par hai. Woh chahte hain ki Sikkim unko saunp diya jaye, jahan woh raj karein aur unki sarkar chale. Isme woh China ka samarthan chahte hain. Bharat ke sath Dalai Lama ka yeh vishwasghati kuchakra antar-rashtriye astar par bhi chalaya ja raha hai (now Dalai Lama has his eyes fixed on Sikkim.

He wants Sikkim to be handed over to him so that he may establish his rule there and in the execution of this gameplan the Dalai Lama is soliciting Chinese support. Dalai Lamas game of grand betrayal is also being played at the international level).

In the end, the pamphlet questions His Holinesss divine status. Divinity and personal security guards are incompatible, as divine beings need no protection, as they are themselves the protectors, says the pamphlet.

As the Dalai Lama heavily depends on security guards for being alive, he can not be accorded divinity, argued the pamphlet.
