What do I think of the Dalai Lama
Did I ever meet him? Yes. I was asked to photograph the affair in the late 1970’s for
family members. I met him, shook his hand, he shock mine with a hearty shake, and we spoke a few
words. Then I moved on to do what I wanted to do - hang out with my friends. I knew a man that
knew the Dalai Lama quite well, Tochto and Tochto hung out with me and my friends - we even spent
one New Years Eve together at a dance club. Photo of Tochto behind the Dalai Lama - he was with
the Dalai Lama, not just standing up so close to him - next to him were his security guards.
Photo of Tochto and I at my cousin’s house is shown here, I do have others, one should suffice.
My grandfather is a Lama also. What dealings my grandfather had with this Dalai Lama I don’t know
about, never asked about, never cared about. The Tibetan Lamas in the area, in general,
tended to be snobs. The Tatars, on the other hand, were genuine, down-to-earth, friendly people.
The only language the Tibetans and Tatars shared in common was ENGLISH! My grandfather’s brother
Dambin was also a Lama - and I can assure you he certainly did NOT fit the picture of a peace-loving
white lighter. He did, however, fit more into a description of Jenghis Khan (Genghis, Chinggis,
etc). He was locked up a few times by the Czar’s police and then escaped. He had a war-lord’s
army in Northwest China (the old Karakorum territory) whereupon he kicked some Chinese Nationalist
butt royally - and then some. His was not the way of peace. He was a warrior and a Lama. Very
UN-Tibetan. Very Tatar.
Neither I nor my Lama grandfather are TIBETAN. We are Tatars. We come from what is properly called
the SOVIET UNION, formerly RUSSIA - just Northeast of the Ukraine in a town called Astrakhan.
Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov) also came from Astrakhan and his name, Ulyan, means "Red" in
the Tatar-Mongol language. This language, including Mongolian, is related to TURKISH! NOT to Chinese
at all! There are Buddhist Tatars there that have been there for hundreds of years. They are far
from Tibet and their customs are VERY DIFFERENT.
What do I have to say of this Dalai Lama? In mystical language I’ll say that if he were
truly the incarnation of Amithaba, there is no way Mao’s army would have run him out of Tibet!
And if he is truly a man of "no-ego" and "no-self" then it wouldn’t matter
WHERE he practices his yoga - in Tibet or in the USA. However it does matter to him. Why? Doesn’t
he BELIEVE in KARMA??? In more mystical language I’d say that KARMA has been very active but it
would seem that the Dalai Lama and his Tibetan exile followers no longer BELIEVE in Karma! On
that I do have practical comments that are not mystical at all. The comments are similar to some
of the truths that came out about the myth of not-so-nice Mother Theresa!
We are all told that the Dalai Lama is the spiritual (and political?) leader of a country which
was actually, in reality, one of the last slave societies on the planet Earth. The propaganda
that advocates this Dalai Lama always ignores slavery and fabricates total lies about the positions
and actions of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army under Mao Tse-Tung - a man who can be TRULY
SAID to have been a Bright Light in the midst of a society that was total hell.
Happily, I didn’t have to write too much of this - someone else did me the favor! Here it is.
Tibet is portrayed in much literature, including occult literature, as a peace-loving, non-violent
society, when it was in fact a brutal society of high Lamas owning hundreds of thousands of serfs.
The Dalai Lama’s family alone owned 4,000 people.(1) As one former serf told journalist Anna Louise
Strong on life before liberation: "I was not much different than a yak." (2) Of course,
everyone is supposed to believe that they can come back reincarnated as any creature, yak, dog,
rat, etc. Religion is used to stifle rebellion against one’s KARMA or FATE. In other words, if
you have the life of a slave, that’s your Karma. This is no different from Altar-Throne tyranny
that used to exist in the West before the Renaissance came to overthrow it in part. Serfs and
slaves believed it was God’s Will for them to BE serfs or slaves - and of course, Kings were Kings
by Divine Decree. It was the same in Tibet. Tatar society was NEVER like this! NEVER!
In complete contrast to the Buddhist Tatars whose Lamas were ordinary people that chipped in
and did work, that lived in yurts with the common folk, and that often visited and helped everyone
in any village, the high Lamas of Tibet lived wholly isolated from the people, and the young Dalai
Lama constantly watched "his people" from his palace with a telescope. He also had advisors
that kept the younger Dalai Lama even more cut off from the people.
Factual History: Prior to 1949, Tibet had been considered a part of China. According to
Strong, "No foreign power in seven hundred years has recognized Tibet as a separate nation
or sent an ambassador to Lhasa." (3) While Tibet was relatively autonomous in the period
immediately prior to 1949, so was most of imperialist-weakened China as it had broken up into
different pieces run by warlords. Lies and propaganda would portray the Communist Chinese who
were sent into Tibet as being rude to everyone, bossy, and (of course) trashing various and sundry
religions items including "peace" signs of friendship or as being fanatical ranters
screaming out Karl Marx’s saying: "Religion is the opium of the people." This is not
true. But it is true that religion was used by Tibet’s ruling classes to justify oppressive
systems and get the people to believe that they deserve their conditions because of Karma. Like
the Christian nonsense about "life will be better in the hereafter," the Tibetan version
told adherents that if they tolerated their position in society well enough, they might do better
in another life. Religion is a reactionary idea that Communists do speak against, but the
methods that the People’s Liberation Army are accused of using are not only historically inaccurate
but are known to Communists to be wholly ineffective at destroying superstition! Mao himself wrote
instructions in his "Report on an Investigation of the Peasant Movement in Hunan." It
was written 20 years before contact with Tibet. Mao wrote that the Communists should guide the
peasants in attaining a full measure of political consciousness, they should leave it to the peasants’
own initiative to abolish superstitious and other bad practices and should not give them orders
or do it for them."(4) Mao also explained that the nobility would otherwise use this
alienation of the peasants’ current ideology to rally them against the Communist Party and the
revolution. But with careful political work the peasants will become impressed by the honest ways
of the Communists and take up the revolutionary science of Marxism that puts the faith in the
masses’ own actions and not in gods or the location of their ancestors’ graves. Communists always
used reason, not force, in such matters because using force would backfire and cause people to
rally around religion instead of resisting it and seeing it for the fairy tale it was.
What about the PLA business: The PLA entered the city of Chambdo in 1950. This area plagued
by fighting between Tibetan and Szechwan warlords, was not, according to most maps, part of Tibet.
In 1950, however, the population was majority Tibetan. The PLA entry was anticipated by the Dalai
Lama, so Tibetan troops were sent to meet and fight the PLA. The PLA quickly defeated the Dalai
Lama’s army in Chambdo. Many Tibetans, including some of the leadership of the Tibetan army, went
over to the PLA side. The PLA was able to win support by explaining their intentions and through
sharing what was happening in [other parts of] China. The PLA did not advance into Tibet until
1951, when an agreement between the Dalai Lama and the Central Government for the ‘Peaceful
Liberation of Tibet’ was signed. The agreement set the terms of the transition for Tibet back
into being a functioning part of China. Claiming the support of the Tibetan people, the Dalai
Lama also claimed to support the agreement, in which China was to "leave unchanged the
political structure, the powers of the Dalai Lama, the income of the monasteries" and was
not to "use compulsion for reform." Instead reform was left in the hands of the local
governments and monasteries who had agreed to begin reforming themselves. These agreements included
things like abolishing debts the serfs had owed for generations to the monasteries.(5) As one
might imagine happens with such reforms, the Dalai Lama and the nobility dragged their feet at
the reforms, especially land reform, and staged a number of rebellions! After a 1959 nobility-led
rebellion, the Dalai Lama fled to exile in India. With the self-removal of the bulk of the
nobility and their invalidation of the 1951 agreement, serfdom was officially abolished and land
reform was carried out in earnest.(5)
"Kundun: The Amazing Story of the 14th Dalai Lama" "Seven Years in
Tibet." blah blah blah. Autobiography or Biographies of the Dalai Lama, pure hype: spiritual
and political leader of feudal Tibet. Pure saccharine: painting the Dalai Lama as a reformer,
and the People’s Liberation Army as horrible oppressors. The Dalai Lama had very little contact
with the common people of Tibet. The Tibetan Court tried to keep the Dalai Lama in the dark about
various political matters (palace intrigue, the existence of Tibetan prisons and the Tibetan army).
Why not tell the story of the People? Base it on the lives of the majority of the population
not on the top leader. Why not tell of the hard work and low standard of living of the serfs compared
to the nobility who sat on their cushioned thrones in palaces and "did yoga" and other
tripe but never once did one single day’s worth of WORK. Why not tell the story of the former
slave woman who became the leader of Tibet after the Dalai Lama fled. After all, it must have
been HER KARMA - right? Or tell the story of this former serf who said: "I think I was not
much different from a yak or any other draft animal for I could not read or write a word and knew
nothing at all. For generations my family belonged to a big serf-owner who had five hundred families
of serfs, working both in farming and in livestock. I wore the same sheepskin winter and summer
and it was my only garment. It was so old that there was no wool on it anymore nor any warmth
but only plenty of lice. I was always hungry."(6) And if after the Bright Shining Sun, Mao
Tse-Tung, came to be, this poor serf rose and now has a position of authority and eats well and
has clean clothes: IS THAT NOT THE KARMA OF THIS SERF??? What happened to the Doctrine of Karma?
Did it get lost somewhere along the way when the Dalai Lama fled? Or was it just abandoned? Or
did they NEVER BELIEVE IT IN THE FIRST PLACE? Like maybe the Czar never really believed that he
was put on the throne by God? Yeah? Well, if he DID believe it, surely the bullet put through
his head by one wonderful Bolshevik Comrade disabused him of his illusions.
The Dalai Lama, in fact, represents a slave society! In the almost 50 years since the
Dalai Lama took office, he has yet to denounce past serfdom or even say that restoring the Dalai
Lama regime will not mean restored slavery for the Tibetan masses. The Dalai Lama is always said
to have lamented the "Chinese invasion" because his reforms were about to take place.
OH? The only changes are in the way the Dalai Lama and his press agents TELL THE STORY! It is
said now that the Dalai Lama did not approve the 1951 agreement for the "Peaceful Liberation
of Tibet," which set forth the a slow pace of reforms by which the nobility would give political
power to the masses. Between 1951 and 1959, there were several rebellions of the nobility. In
1959, 4 of the 6 wealthy noblemen in the kasha (Cabinet of Ministers) united in rebellion. The
rebellion failed because the Tibetan people did not support it. According to the Dalai Lama at
the time, he was kidnapped and forced into exile. This claim is highly suspicious because the
Dalai Lama refused an offer of the Chinese Communist Party to return to power. Instead, the Dalai
Lama remained in India and denounced the 1951 Agreement. This allowed the Chinese Communist Party
to abandon the slow pace of the 1951 Agreement and instead speed up it’s reforms. The story gets
warped and changed to make claims that the Dalai Lama played no role in the rebellions but willingly
flees to India. It is said that Mao had a private meeting with the Dalai Lama. No such meeting
occurred! The only evidence anyone has of this meeting is the Dalai Lama’s word for it. In such
societies religion most definitely is a poison used to dupe the masses into accepting miserable
societies. Even in the Tibetan version of Buddhism, there is the "Buddhist" justification
for suffering. Instead of blaming the nobility for their poverty, any serf system wanted the people
to blame their ancestors. Instead of making a revolution and carrying out land reform, this form
of "Buddhism" wants the people to focus on their next reincarnation.
Where are they now? This nobility in exile serves as the nucleus of the "Free Tibet"
Lots of cash profit is made through various schools of yoga, enlightenment, meditation, etc.etc.
Why is this so expensive? And so: what would anyone think I’d "think of" this
Dalai Lama? Would I want to talk to him? Oh, I took photos for blood relatives. But would
I want to talk to this Dalai Lama? Would I want to talk to the CZAR? NO! I’d want to KILL the
god-damned Czar! To top that off, for a very long time no one that was European (white) was ever
allowed into Tibet. Blavatsky never went there, she’s a total fraud. Tibetans had a very negative
attitude toward the "White Devils." After the Dalai Lama and other Tibetans fled Tibet,
they became dependent on these "white devils" for sanctuary; after all, America is pretty
much a White Christian country. The resentment and self-loathing in some of the Tibetan common
people here is evident. The Tatars are NOTHING like this. Many Tatars loved Lenin and Stalin and
joined not only the Communist Party of the USSR, but became NKVD officials. VERY DIFFERENT EXERIENCE.
They, as Buddhists even, saw that Communism was a more advanced and more humane system for man,
it was universalistic and treated the workers as important, not as serfs.
The Hoolah: Western press coverage and New Age books on Tibet are goggle-eyed, one-sided
white-washes to the point of blinding ignorance on the subject of Tibet.
English conservative magazine "The Economist" said: "All the world, it seems,
needs Tibet, or more specifically Tibetan Buddhism. ... This perception of Tibet and its religion
is an extraordinary accomplishment for a nation of perhaps only 4 million people--2.6 million
of them in Tibet proper--scattered across the roof of the world. It appears most visibly in the
throngs of young hippies making their way to Dharamsala, the main Tibetan exile, hoping for an
audience with the ‘jewel of the lotus,’ and in a new espousal of Tibetan Buddhism by the Hollywood
chic."(7) Is this a sell-out of the formerly oral and sacred esoteric tradition of Vajrayana?
Now at least in Scotland, the Scotsman says, "If these freedom-loving hipsters had heard
some of the whispers escaping the heavenly state, however, they might have considered moving to
next year’s fad." The root of this opinion is a Lama Kundeling who says the Dalai Lama is
responsible for despotism and murder to this day.(8)
Although "The Economist" magazine chides the Tibet Buddhists mostly for not being Western
enough to keep out the Chinese communists, it has now admitted that the original reason for the
exile of the Dalai Lama was a lie of "febrile" junior Tibetan officials in March 1959.
Specifically they conjured a rumor that the Dalai Lama would be kidnapped by the central government
of China and this is what provoked the civil war that ended in the Dalai Lama’s exile.
Fact: the old system in Tibet was a slave-owning system into the 1950s. The Maoist central
government ended the slavery and brought a new economic system, but it was relatively respectful
of the culture of Tibet. Former Tibetan slaves were the heads of the Communist Party and government
of Tibet--not Han Chinese as the liars would tell everyone.
It is now also known that the CIA did indeed provide concrete military and financial aid to the
Tibetan reactionaries--as admitted even by "The Economist" now.
