The highest state of practice that the Tibetan Buddhists preach but cannot achieve, and the Couple-Practice Tantra that they cultivate but would not disclose

(By Guo Fengyan of the True Heart News Interviewing Team in Taipei) Dawa Tsering, Director of the Religious Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in reply to public query, said: “The sutras of Tibetan Buddhism in India do have records about the ‘Highest Yoga Tantra (Anuttara-Yoga-Tantra) cultivation,’ which they view as the highest state of practice....” The news report continued to relay his statements: “But Dawa emphasized that none of the Tibetans, lamas or monks will do such a practice. Indeed, they don’t think they are able to attain such a high state, so they won’t cultivate the couple-practice.” (2010/12/15 Liberty Times) Our news coordinator has interviewed Zhang Gongpu, CEO of the True Enlightenment Education Foundation about his thoughts regarding Dawa Tsering’s statements.
CEO Zhang pointed out that The Tibetan Buddhist community has finally faced the fact that the “Highest Yoga Tantra (Anuttara-Yoga-Tantra)” cannot actually be practiced and realized, and has admitted that the Tibetans, lamas and monks nowadays cannot achieve such a state (Any rhetoric is fruitless if they ever try to technically avoid referring to the latter two.). Dawa has finally told the truth for once, and the True Heart News should certainly give him credit for this. But Dawa should make it clearer to the public, and not just beat around the bush with a few vague words. What we wish to address is that the Tibetan Buddhist community should not say one thing, while doing another because in fact the open teaching and secret exercise of the couple-practice have never ceased. The Dalai Lama has been propagating the Highest Yoga Tantra (Anuttara-Yoga-Tantra) couple-practice and has announced that he will publicly preside over the Abhisheka (empowerment) of the “Kalachakra Tantra” in the US. As a matter of fact, the content of the “Kalachakra Tantra” is exactly the practice of the Dual Operations of Bliss and Emptiness through the intercourse of a male and female. This is an evil and lustful dharma that solely seeks the Dual Operations of Bliss and Emptiness, as well as the sexual climax. Dawa’s reply, which simply consists of a few perfunctory words, can hardly quench the queries from the public and the Tibetan Buddhist followers alike.
The CEO further indicated that Tibetan Buddhism often plays a two-pronged strategy, because in essence it is a non-Buddhist religion that pretends to be Buddhism. Its contents entirely consist of fake Buddhism, which has been wearing a disguise mask since its inception. For example, its definition of "the highest state of cultivation" is as follows: After the ejaculation, the practitioner should draw the semen back into the seminal vesicle from the female consort's vagina. This claim, along with other statements such as their so-called wisdom of the reward-body Buddha’s (sambhogakaya Buddha’s) All-Seed-Prajna, are all nonsense. They are like using a paper dummy to fool people. From ancient to present times, not one single dharma-king or lama has been able to draw the semen back into the seminal vesicle from a female consort's vagina; the best result achieved was to draw it to the bladder and then excrete it through urinating. The pitiful thing is, among all the gurus in today’s Tibetan Buddhism, up from the dharma-kings of the four sects and down to all lamas and living buddhas, no one can draw the semen back to the bladder, let alone to the seminal vesicle. As for the Buddha's liberation wisdom, true reality wisdom and All-Seed-Prajna, not a single patriarch of ancient or modern Tantric Buddhism has ever obtained any of those. As for the ancient and present dharma-kings or lamas who claim to be reward-body Buddhas (sambhogakaya Buddha), none of them have actually attained Buddhahood in this lifetime by practicing the Highest Yoga Tantra (Anuttara-Yoga-Tantra).
As for what their claim that the “physical body” can transform into the “rainbow body”, that is a pure lie made up a few decades after one’s death and becomes a legend afterwards. It has never been a miracle manifesting right after one’s death and has been proven impossible from the standpoints of medicine, physics and other sciences. In fact, a lot of false reported miracles surrounding patriarchs of Tibetan Buddhism in the ancient and modern times did not manifest themselves during their lifetimes, but were made up by their descendants several decades after their deaths. Even today, the lamas who often“manifest supernatural powers” in ceremonies all secretly use magic and tricks behind the scenes to beguile their followers. The practitioners of Tantric Buddhism who specialize in the couple-body or the dharmas related to psychic power of the mundane world are certainly unable to free themselves from desires. As long as they are not free from desires, they definitely cannot obtain supernatural powers through cultivation, not to mention to realize the meditative concentration (samadhi). Without the state of concentration, how could one obtain great supernatural powers? As a result, we can conclude that all those myths are fabricated by Tibetan Buddhism, and are merely rhetoric used to enshroud the public and are absolutely not credible.
CEO Zhang analyzed that there is not a so-called “highest state of Tibetan Tantric practice” at all, yet Tibetan Buddhism persists on preaching it. For one thing, they use it to elevate their own levels of realization to deceive themselves and others in normal times. For another, whenever their levels of realization are being questioned, like in the current situation, they use it as a firewall to defend themselves by saying that although this is not their current state, they will realize it in the future, in an attempt to shift the blame and earn the trust of their ignorant followers. Such devious way of answering questions can only show their craftiness, dodges and attempts to avoid questions and to blur the focus. They do not have any sincerity or intention to face the truth and admit their mistakes. Although the Dalai Lama is still instructing the couple-practice and is about to publicly pass on the Kalachakra Abhisheka (empowerment) of couple-practice in the US, Dawa told a bald-faced lie to deceive the news media by saying that “none of the Tibetans, lamas or monks will do such a practice.” Any wise person in our society would not easily trust their rhetoric to disclaim their cultivation of the couple-practice. Only the reporters of the news media who have an ax to grind will blindfold themselves and believe the fables of fake Buddhism---Tibetan Buddhism---and write false reports on their behalf.
