10 Facts About Tibet The Dalai Lama Doesn't Want You To Know

FACT ONE: Tibetans practiced a spiritual form of medicine. One of the more bizarre beliefs, were the mystical healing powers lamas possessed. Just being able to touch a holy person was enough to cure a raft of diseases. And for those unable to get close to a deity like the Dalai Lam, the god-man came to them, in the form of urine and excrement (the later was dried & made into a pill, for swallowing)Spittle from a lama was similarly treasured for its healing powers.

FACT TWO: Without basic sanitary conditions, hygiene, rubbish-collection, running water, modern medical care like hospitals & preventive medicines, pre-Chinese Tibet was beset with chronic health problems. Small pox was rife enough for the 13th Dalai Lama to suffer its rages. Cataracts, leprosy, tuberculosis were also prevalent. But, the most widespread affliction suffered by the general population was venereal disease.

Misogyny under the Dalai Lamas

FACT FOUR: The old Tibetan word for woman is Kiemen (or kye-mi) The literal translation of this is ‘inferior birth' of ‘lower birth'. Tibetan Buddhists believed only males could achieve ‘nirvana'. A Buddhist prayer commonly recited went along the lines “may I reject a feminine body and be reborn a male one”. (source)

FACT FIVE: Prior to the Chinese invasion there were only two small schools operating in the whole of Tibet (using the term school in the modern secular interpretation of the word) These schools educated teenage boys starting at age 14. Eligibility was confined to nobility, families of high ranking monks and government officials.

FACT SIX: At any one time 15 to 20 per cent of the male population were monks. Rendering a large percentage of the work-force effectively ‘redundant' was a large economic burden on an already fragile economy. Feeding and clothing this vast monastic empire fell to the serfs & peasants who were not only subservient & bound to the local monastery, the state, but also the aristocratic lord, whose lands it was, they were tenant-farming.

FACT SEVEN: Serfs, who made-up around 80% of the population (again figures vary) were ‘tied to their master’s’. Under the Tibetan feudal system, peasants were rendered virtually powerless. They couldn’t travel, marry, trade etc, without permission or consent of their masters. About 500 families controlled 80% of the countries wealth.

FACT EIGHT: With so few jails operating, a more summary form of justices was employed, which may have been a blessing considering the Government Jail operating in Lhasa was part cesspit, part prison, from which inmates were released from their squalor for just two days a year. At the disposal of the law administrators (read; rich lords, religious fraternities and government officials) were a whole range of crude medieval type torture devices: manacles, red hot irons, implements to gouge eyes out, hanging by thumbs, crippling, sewing the guilty party into a sack and throwing them into a river, spikes under finger-nails, forcing pepper into the eyes – were all a realities of the pre-invasion justice system for the ‘docile' Buddhist peoples of Tibet.

Dalai Lama chosen Randomly, and at an inappropriate age: Young boys from ages 2-6 are chosen as the next Dalai Lama by the Tibetan government and the High Lamas (more info). If a situation arises where there are more than one Dalai Lama prospects, their names are dropped into a container and lots are drawn to determine the next leader of the nation. This is in contrast with the concept of democracy where people of a nation are allowed to elect mature experienced leaders on the basis of their past successes.

Fact of the Day: "1,000 arms" - The current Dalai Lama is the 14th reincarnation of an "enlightened

being" called

Avalokitesvara who according to one promiment Buddhist story, was rumoured to have 1,000 arms and 11 heads. This story was not meant to

allegorical or symbolical in nature. This 1,000-armed creature actually existed according to well known Buddhist accounts (read more).

Comment: Doing a 40lb bicep curl for each of the 1000 arms of Mr. Avalokitesvara (just say

Alka-Seltzer; its easier and sounds the same) would mean lifting 40,000 lbs. 11 heads would mean Mr. Alka-Seltzer could kiss 11 of his girlfriends all at the same time. One might wonder if he possessed 11 ... well, nevermind.

Parallels between Christianity and Buddhism: "Saving" Humanity

Buddhism:

One prominent Buddhist story tells of Avalokiteúvara (reminder: The current Dalai Lama is the 14th reincarnation of this 11 headed 1,000 armed creature) vowing never to rest until he had freed all sentient beings from samsara. Despite strenuous effort, he realizes that still many unhappy beings were yet to be saved. (read more from Wikipedia; content in brackets my own)

Christianity:

Salvation is the very purpose for Jesus coming into the world. We have been saved are being saved and are yet to be saved. (Source: The Power of the Cross)

BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) -- Raidi, a former Tibetan serf and vice chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, has called the Dalai Lama and his political backers the "chief representatives" of the theocratic, feudal serfdom of the old Tibet.

"They have confronted the fundamental interests of the mass of working people who make up the majority of the Tibetan population and they have irreconcilable contradictions with the requirements of social development and progress and the development trends of human society," said Raidi in an article.

Eye gouging in Tibet formalized as law under the first 12 Dalai Lamas

"Judicial mutilation - principally the gouging out of eyes, and the cutting off of hands or feet - was formalized under the Sakya school as part of the 13th century Tibetan legal code, and was used as a legal punishment until being declared illegal in 1913 by a proclamation of the 13th Dalai Lama." (source)

Note: Cutting of hands and feet is part of Sharia law in Islam (source).

Hello, long time no talk, how are you doing and how is life treating you. I do however have a question for you and was just wondering why it is so very important to you how others feel about the teachings of the Dalai Lama.
In life there will always be those who believe as we do and those who do not and I find it interesting that you have made it your mission to try hard to slander the insights of a man who is just in fact a man...It would be like everytime the pope said something you would contradict it, or each word that came out of a preacher like Billy Graham would get you going. I was just wondering why this is and if you even know why? But than again, its not my business and if it makes you happy than i should just mind my own bees-wax 🙂 any-who, take care and know that I am not trying to start a fight with you just thought I would ask.Hope your well and are still finding some inexpensive dinners. Love in recovery, Peace4all

Because I cant stay silent when fraudulent men and silly beliefs are paraded as heros and wisdom respectively.

Search "Dalai Lama fraud" and just see how many people in the world believe that he's a fraud. There must be a reason. Serfdom that happened in Tibet under the rule of the Dalai Lamas was one reason.

Silly beliefs = 1,000 armed and 11 headed monster goes out to "save humanity" (in his own words) and Dalai Lama is the 14th reincarnation of that monster. Is this belief silly or not? I think it is.
