The same could be said for a lot of two year olds.
but his teachings hide that side of him..
He definitely doesn't teach people how to control and manipulate others.
"trainees" (lol) like yourself, who are clueless to the actual power are kept from such knowledge, which is obviously guarded within the mind and soul of the "holiness" himself.
If someone who is interested in the Dalai Lama enough to take teaching from him and to read his books is kept ignorant of his sinister purposes, how do people who never take teachings from him and who don't read his books become aware of them?
If you take what you know, and expand on it a little.. what you call bizarre and bull could be a possilbe explanation. I dont have information or background of what goes on in the Tibet Plateau and its hiding places.. Im just saying keep an open mind, you could be fooled and deceived.
On the Tibetan plateau Tibetans are being pushed around by Chinese invaders in numerous ways. Information about it is easily found on the internet. I agree with you about keeping an open mind and watching out for deception. That is almost a core Buddhist teaching.
On the outside he looks like a Holy man with great wisdom and teachings.. on the inside.. well you, I, nor anybody really knows what hes about. This is the point my friend. The teachings you have recieved, could of been taught by self.. There are spiritual people as or more enlightened then Dhali Lama himself, who brought their enlightenment through inner guidence.
Tibetans are all too familiar with phony religious frauds. That is why, in Tibetan Buddhism, so much stress is placed on "lineage". Tibetans know their teacher but also know his lineage, who his teachers were and who their teachers were, often going back hundreds of years. It's a method of quality control in Dharma instruction.
What disturbs me about this topic is each president chillin there with the D.Lama!! If he was all about peace and enlightenment, why is he having happy times with the ones corrupting human kind?? If that isnt fishy I dont what is...
This is a result of the Chinese invasion of Tibet. The Dalai Lama is Tibet's leading lobbyist, talking to heads of state from around the world trying to get diplomatic and material support for the Tibetan people and their government in exile. It's politics.
Also this "Black Monks" working astral and black magik underground.. that is an interesting idea, would love to learn more of that topic.
You want to learn more about black magic and yet you suggest that the Dalai Lama might have sinister motives? I know you mean well, but please . . .

try this [ all ` superfluous ` words removed ]
bodies of Tibetan Monks, ............... None of the bodies could be identified,..............questions, as to who they were,
now see why its not an internally consistant claim ?
if they are " tibetan monks " - they have been identified - and there is no " question " of who they were
if statements 2 & 3 are true - then the claim that they were " tibetan monks " is a fabrication , contradicting the 2 statements
He has a point. If they were dressed in SS uniforms and could not be identified how do they know they were monks?
(A) They probably had shaved heads. I know this is being stereotypical but most Buddhist monks I have seen have shaved heads
(B) They could probably tell from the faces's features that they were asian.edit on 3-8-2012 by RimDaas because: (no reason given)

And there is a long standing buddhist tradition in Japan, too.
Not too mention that suiciding was, at the time, a common japanese tactic to avoid capture/dishonor.

The main connection to the national socialists and tibet is the swastika, but this connection is more myth than fact. There is no explicit reason given in mein kampf why the swastika was used, and in fact other european countries such as Finland used the swastika, so it could have just been a popular symbol. It is thousands of years old and previous scientific understanding claimed the indo europeans which originated the swastika were aryans, so Hitler might have felt a kinship with this, but the idea that it was inverted to mean evil is going along with the establishments lies about the national socialists. Mainly Hitler needed a symbol that was easy to identify, I think people read too much into the thule society and tibet because of this. Hitler was generally against religious thinking and he certainly did not believe in the pacifism of buddhism.

There are many Asian Buddhists who have a streak of this kind of thinking in their own minds. This kind of thinking is everywhere, East and West, but at the Nazi period, very, very few westerners would have had a proper notion of the core attitudes and beliefs of any sort of Buddhism, although in certain circles serious efforts to discover these things were taking place.
