BANGALORE, India, 24 October 2020
Out of much compassion and pity, I am writing this to you in a sincere attempt to help you take back your sanity, which you seem to have lost by selling your conscience (zameer) to CCP for a few pieces of bread.
Your post and tweets about His Holiness the Dalai Lama that surfaced recently clearly indicate some unmistakable lunatic symptoms that signal some serious underlying disorder requiring immediate treatment.
I understand a deficiency of ethics can lead to deadly diseases like prejudice and moral bankruptcy which are even deadlier than COVID, and you are reported diagnosed positive as evidenced from your extremely disturbing and nonsensical post on HH the Dalai Lama, which even your paying masters in Beijing don’t believe literally. Pathogens in this case are greed, selfishness, lack of responsibility to other’s rights, and insensitivity to others’ predicaments. You carry all these symptoms very visibly. But don’t worry. It is not incurable.
In general, we never address His Holiness directly with his title — “Dalai Lama” — without prefixing the honorific “His Holiness” before. But for your sake, I, with much guilt and regret, in this letter, may discount myself addressing him as the “Dalai Lama” alone at some selected places, hoping that doing so will help you better in removing your ignorance. I am forced to stoop low to match your lowly.
You have no idea what you have done actually — at least to your reputation, leave alone the larger world for the time being…! If you have read at least one or two books about His Holiness in life, I am sure you wouldn’t have stooped so low to the extent of selling your zameer for a few pieces of bread. The man who you sarcastically labelled as “World Most Loved Ex-Slave-Owner” is actually the hope and inspiration for millions of oppressed slaves who are suffering under the brutal rule of CCP and longing for a better tomorrow.
The real slave-owner, Beijing-based CCP, your paying master — the world’s biggest legitimized terrorist organization, responsible for the death of more than 45 million so far and still continuing the numbers (which amounts to more than that of Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin put together), against which the rest of the free world is collectively fighting for the emancipation of millions from its clutches — seems to appear to you as a sun-like liberator. Blinded by your ignorance…! That doesn’t surprise me either…! One who has abandoned conscience and shame is capable of anything. And you have come up as one such this time…!
To educate you a little further, I must tell you that His Holiness is a man who has been bestowed with more than 300 international awards, the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize, and honorary degrees from world-renowned universities — all in recognition of his lifetime global peace-building contributions which have wheeled the world closer to peace. Your sordid remark on the Dalai Lama, very unintelligently says that those renowned universities and international bodies have conferred recognition to an “ex-slave owner”, which serves no purpose other than making yourself a laughing-stock in front of the entire world. The very fact that you have been compelled to include the phrase “World’s Most Loved” while wording your derogatory remark (“World’s Most Loved Ex-Slave Owner”) on the Dalai Lama itself evidently speaks loads enough that you too don’t believe (within your dead conscience) in what you are saying. Because the world is not that much of a fool to love an “Ex-Slave Owner” the way it does.
I learned that you are a naturalized American citizen of Pakistani origin. By doing this nonsensical thing, you have further undermined the values and principles of the government of the US, and of Americans who not only believe in peace and human values, but also have acknowledged His Holiness’ peace-building legacy, with much thanks, by conferring on him the country’s highest civilian award, the Congressional Gold Medal, in 2007.
Far from upholding the constitutional values of the US — a duty that you owe as a citizen — you have disgracefully undermined it by making such irresponsible and cheap remarks on HH the Dalai Lama, the man who is highly revered by the very nation which has granted you nationality. You have made these derogatory remarks on His Holiness while living in USA, while enjoying the freedom and liberty of the USA, the country which believes the Dalai Lama to be a gifted peace icon — a view opposite to that of yours.
And also you have undermined the values of the great Islam and its founder Prophet Mohammad, the religion to which you claim you are affiliated. Islam is a great religion of peace, and Muhammad was one of the greatest Teachers the world has ever had. His teachings don’t approve of this kind of lowly and sordid conduct.
The Dalai Lama is the only non-Muslim world personality who withstood the world Muslim community in the post-9/11 twin tower attack era, by endorsing that Muslim communities, in general, are peaceful communities which cannot be represented by a few extremist groups — and in doing this, risking his own amicable ties with the US and other Western worlds. Many Muslim intellectuals and leaders have thanked the Dalai Lama for such a forward take offered in favour of the Muslim community.
Again, the only non-Muslim global personality, the Dalai Lama, in the case of the Rohingya genocide crisis, openly condemned a Burmese Buddhist fundamentalist group for carrying on the persecution of Muslims, which has invited much abusive rant from Buddhist extremists like Ashin Wirathu, a right-wing Burmese monk who orchestrated the persecution of Rohingya Muslims. All this the Dalai Lama did for Muslim communities, sacrificing his own already-earned credit and risking to earn potential gains. And Muslim communities are in general thankful for him. But this kind of sordid conduct of yours, again, brings much shame to the otherwise proud Muslim community, of which you are a disgraceful member!
What makes you so — infamously, disreputably, disgracefully, and negatively — popular this way around the world by your uncalled-for disgusting remark on the Dalai Lama is not because of anything great which lies in you, but because of the abundant greatness which lies in the man (HH DL) who you attempted to defame. You became infamously famous by abusing a sun-like great man whose legacy has benefited even you, much unknowingly under your ocean like the ignorance you live with.
Thank your luck that the folks whose sentiments your jibe has hurt happened to be Tibetan (and other Buddhist and non-Buddhist followers of HH Dalai Lama around the world) who are not only peace-loving people, but also capable of returning harm with compassion — the credit of which solely goes to the His Holiness’ unique compassion-driven upbringing through which all Tibetans have been cultured and raised.
Else, if it had been the sentiments of some others communities, then this would have been the end for you. And remember that your victims (we Tibetans) are capable of returning hurt with compassion and tolerance, again only because of the values taught by HH the Dalai Lama, the man you abused in exchange for some pieces of bread from Beijing. This way you are directly thankful to Dalai Lama for you still being able to roam and breathe freely, safe even after hurting our sentiments.
The Buddhist canon says it is better to have a negative relation with Buddha than not having any relation at all, while the best is to have a positive relation. Neutrality — neither a positive nor negative relation — is not advised. Given this as background, you are lucky to have established a negative relation with His Holiness this time, with this sinister affront made on him which will certainly benefit you positively later. Thank your ignorance, and blame it also!
And you should know that your defamation attempt against HH DL has earned you abundant love, compassion, and blessings from His Holiness in return, which is possible only in the case of HH Dalai Lama and none else in this entire world system.
Apart from your lowly living making, I also want to make people like you and your kind of creatures — paid running dogs of China who are tasked to execute covet maligning schemes designed by China to defame and tarnish the international stature and the soft-power influence of HH the Dalai Lama — understand that no matter how hard you try, all your attempts to defame His Holiness will remain futile as the case has been since the early 1990s, the time when China first started planting running dogs like you to reshape public opinion about Tibet and the Dalai Lama of particular geographic regions in favour of their political interests.
In a sincere attempt to help you become cured back to normalcy, I am recommending you read the two listed books below by His Holiness, reading which I am sure will help you transform yourself into a better and more responsible world citizen.
- Ethics for the New Millennium
- An Open Heart: Practicing Compassion in Everyday Life
Help yourself by reading these two books at least ten times. Trust me — these two books are therapeutic in treating mental prejudice and in civilizing a moral bankruptcy case to a good extent, if not fully. I have recommended Ethics for the New Millennium because you lack ethics — drastically. And An Open Heart because your heart is too narrow and it needs to be broadened. I don’t blame you. But I do blame your ignorance driven negative emotions like greed and selfishness strongly embedded in your mental gamut which need to be flushed down immediately.
Reading these two books by His Holiness has helped fantastically even some CCP leaders in transforming themselves into better humans. Toh tu kya chez hai!
on behalf of all the Tibetan, Buddhist, and non-Buddhist followers of HH the Dalai Lama around the world. Get well soon, Shame-Ra!
