Usually what we hear from the Dalai Lama is an insistant yet soothing voice for compassion and peace. So Tsering Namgyal, a journalist based in Minneapolis, was jolted by the Dalai Lama's talk to 150 Chinese students this month at the University of

People are judgmental. They are cruel. They do not give chance for any explanations.
His Holiness never spoke ill about anyone. Not now, not ever.
I have always condemn China for occupying Tibet. But the Dalai Lama never condemned China.
The Dalai Lama's entire life is about preaching goodness.

His Holiness, The Dalai Lama speaks only the truth.
More than a million Tibetans have been murdered by the Chinese, how many more should suffer the same fate? How long will tyranny last? When will the Dalai Lama see a Free Tibet, free from the Chinese occupation.
His holiness does not speak bitterly about the Chinese or anyone else.
For those that have criticised the Dalai Lama, I say, shame on you. Shame on you for supporting Chinese expansion. Shame on you for condemning the Dalai Lama and shame on you if you hate the people of Tibet.

If you think that Marxist and the Leninist is the same, you are ignorant.
Books have been written on the subject of Marxist. The views are so different from one author to another.
I am a humble human being, so I will not give you my expert view on Marxist.

All I can do is ask you to give some time for the Dalai Lama to explain.
I am not a budhist, my parents were not budhists. But my parents told me that His Holiness speaks the language of peace and humanity.

During the recent visit of His Holiness people criticized the Dalai Lama.

So, I wrote this note :

People are judgmental. They are un-forgiving. Moreover they are wrong on both counts when they criticise HH, The Dalai Lama. 1. His Highness has a great understanding of World Peace and Spirituality but the Dalai Lama is not fluent in English, and when he was here in America, visiting a University, he had an aide/advisor that would prompt the right words. So if he said “he” instead of “she” does it warrant so much criticism, specially when he speaks so much about forgiveness. 2. People who are not experts on Marxism, speak as if they studied Marxism and are experts on the subjject. There are many books on Marxism, and many of them differ in views from one another. In other words if Marxism is contentious in its form, then it is best for journalist or other litererary experts to probe what HH The Dalai Lama meant. I am almost certain JG will say, it is no biggie.
