The Chinese government wants to acquire some hair of the Dalai Lama, said a Tibetan activist, who claimed to have connections with some top Chinese agents inside China.
Dhamchoe Nyima is a Tibetan living in the US with a background in bio-tech research. He said that Chinese agents contacted him a few months after he publicly destroyed his tax receipt book, known as the ‘Green Book’, in December 2017. This is a document issued by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), based in McLeod Ganj, India.
“Looks like the Chinese agents felt that I was against the Dalai Lama and the CTA after they saw the video of me destroying my Green Book.”
He said that he allowed a connection with them to develop, and he was invited to China for a meeting. He travelled to Shanghai in July 2018 where he met with some top Chinese intelligence agents. He went for a second visit in January this year, but met with different officials from a different department.
When pressed as to how he could prove the claims of “top agents”, he said that when his short-term visa was expiring before arriving in Shanghai, one “top agent” influenced the immigration officer to fix the situation and let him pass.
He then had a few meetings with them in a five-star hotel in the city, where he was asked to arrange for getting some of the Dalai Lama’s hair.
In a hurriedly-held press conference in McLeod Ganj, Nyima said that this was his exposé of some actions of the Chinese government.
“I have no idea what the Chinese want to do with His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s hair, but they asked me to get close to his coterie to get some of it.”
The “agents” showed interest in the issue of choosing the next Dalai Lama, although nothing further about it was discussed. They also asked him if he had any family members living in the Himalayan region of India.
He expressed concern for Chinese designs on the region and on the appointment of the next Dalai Lama, and asked Indian officials to be wary.
Nyima said that for an exile Tibetan to be in touch with “high-level Chinese agents” is in itself something to consider, and to hear from their own mouths what they are looking for gives it even more importance.
A visit to China planned for a third time in August/September did not materialise, as Nyima wasn’t able to get a visa due to the Hong Kong situation. “My contacts were engaged with the Hong Kong issue.”
“Had I got a visa, I was planning to protest on the anniversary of China’s 70th founding anniversary. Unfortunately this didn’t materialise. Now I have decided to close this chapter with all that I know.”
Much was said in the Tibetan community about Nyima destroying his Green Book. He explained that he had destroyed an old Green Book that was not being used, in protest against some policies of the CTA. He then showed the one that he is currently holding.
“Through my research on social media, I knew that an act like destroying the Green Book would get such offers from the Chinese government. It happened exactly in the way I imagined, and I got to do what I wanted.”
He then announced a donation of 5,000 USD to the CTA. “I will hand the cheque to the Sikyong (CTA President) when I meet him sometime in the next few days.”
He sounds suspicious. Like lama tseta. China doesn’t need dalai lama’s hair. They already have everything including hh’s health status. Plenty of Chinese devotees visit dalai lama and they touch. So dna can be acquired easily.
We have to ask who gave him that $5000 which he is giving to lobsang sangay personally?
Dhamchoe nyima opens more questions than answers.
Of course there is no way to determine the truthfulness of these assertions, but while waiting for a clearer understanding it might be interesting for some readers to obtain and view a copy of the 1978 Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivier film, “The Boys from Brazil” which concerns the topic of cloning and subsequent socialization. Maybe a Chinese official saw the film as well.
I would like to request all the Tibetans that do not follow in trap. Unity, Unity and Unity!! Protect our Jewel. These Chinese communists will do everything in their power to make world believe in their incarnation. So all the Tibetans should be careful.
It’s a big suspect for us. He could be one as following. If he was real that, he did everything for our country Tibet, thank you. But at the same time he could be Chinese puppet. So we better be aware of it and not to trap with his donation and his convinced. Take away message to Chinese that though DNA has been a sophisticated tool to you. But you can’t beat our culture of magic and mystery.
Long life Kundun.
In May 2012, tt was reported that “Chinese intelligence agencies stepped up their clandestine efforts to collect intelligence on the status of HH’s health, as well as collecting physical samples of his blood, urine and hair”. HH himself admitted that according to his knowledge, the CCP was sending women assassins in the guise of receiving blessings from him with poisoned hair and khatas so he can be poisoned when his hands come in contact with them. So, there is veracity in what Dhamchoe Nyima is saying. I would give him the benefit of the doubt. I believe we have to welcome such people when they voluntarily return to our fold. We would be better off having less enemies and more friends in our struggle against a formidable opponent. Lama Tseta is an example of how we are winning the battle against the CCP and it’s front the so called Western Shugden Group. After 20 years of going astray, he returned to our fold because of his love for HH The Dalai Lama. Perhaps, Dhamchoe must have had the same awakening which compelled him to turn his back on our enemy. This is a victory for our cause to unite ourselves in the face of consistent attempt to divide us by the United Front of the CCP. It seeks to create division, sabotage and subterfuge to win over unsuspecting Tibetans to disrupt and discredit our movement. Blood is thicker than water they say and perhaps this is another reason for them to return to their original root. Who knows? Whatever the reason may be, it is wellknown that those Tibetans who have collaborated with the CCP have always ended up being purged and disavowed and thrown into jail. Now the broader question is, if HH travels to China and Tibet as he mentioned recently, will the Chinese not achieve their coveted goal of collecting His blood, urine or hair?
Dont know the fact
Just be careful.
Yes, it’s a complete crap. We can not trust this guy. Now that he can not get anything from China, he’s changing sides. After reading the article here, I went on Youtube to check if he really burnt an old green book coz what I saw last time was the new green book. Anyways, he burnt the new green book. Anyone can see it clearly from the video he uploaded. There are other videos too criticizing CTA. Look at the emotions that’s pouring out at the time. He seems insane to me with all these claims. By the way, cleaning at a bio tech research facility doesn’t give him the credentials of having a research background in bio tech. Who knows who funded that donation he’s going to give to CTA. I don’t get it why our people think they could play with CTA. We should be wary of this guy. Look at his past deeds. I for one can not trust this guy. This is really scary and concerning. Hope the security for Kundun is foolproof. Bhod Gyalo.
Don’t know the fact.
Just be careful.
Someone said Tibetan mindset which referring in a negative way. I am so sacred of this again especially Tibetan official including Kashag, parliamentarians and also the media’ to believe this man who created so much drama and such an action to visit China twice on whose authority? All he said could be true but it looks so fishy from truth. When he can do so much he will do any kind of action to diminish Tibetan administration including His Holiness life. Do not trust this man no matter how convincing he looks.
Wow, what a stunt! Are they interested in the extraction of Kundun’s Nuclear DNA, provided one hair root is intact? Just curious.
Thank you Tibet Sun. གནས་ཚུལ་མཁོ་བསྡུ་གནང་བར་ཐུགས་རྗེ་ཆེ།།
Looks like a plain crap to me in order to wash the dirt he created burning the green book. If what he says holds an iota of truth, why didn’t he approach the Private Office or the Dept. of Security with the details? The stupidest thing he said among all the other stupid thing was China seeking His Holiness’ hair. For god sake His Holiness is a monk (with no hair) you moron. And declaring his 5K donation to CTA and meeting LS makes no sense to me. I smell rats all over. What’s going on? Who’s behind this drama? Hope LS is not holding the remote control.
