Do You Believe in the Reincarnation Stories Fabricated by Tibetan “Buddhism”?
(By Guo Fengyan of the True Heart News Interviewing Team in Taipei) In Tibetan “Buddhism,” there are many legends of dharma-kings and living “Buddhas” who claim to be reincarnations of Buddhas and bodhisattvas. The Dalai Lama even claims to be the reincarnation of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. Do you believe all these legends or do you have doubts in mind? Zhang Gongpu, CEO of the True Enlightenment Education Foundation says, putting aside that these reincarnation legends are all just lies and fallacies, you can ask yourself honestly: How could it be possible that these dharma-kings and living “Buddhas” all gather in Tibetan “Buddhism” and none in orthodox Buddhism? If the Dalai Lama were really the reincarnation of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara as he claims, he should have great merits and virtues, great wisdom and great supernatural powers. Neither ordinary people nor any mortal can harm him. And yet, many generations of the Dalai Lama in history died before the age of twenty with unknown causes. Why? Doesn't this strike you as strange? Do you believe these reincarnation legends based on judgment from the true facts? Or is it just superstition from media propaganda reports about the Dalai Lama?
CEO Zhang further points out: Taking the current Dalai Lama as an example, Tibetan “Buddhism” has always claimed that the Dalai Lama is the reincarnation of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. The Dalai Lama himself makes this declaration in public and does not deny it at all. He obviously gives tacit consent to this legend. However, Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is the “True Dharma Enlightenment Tathagata,” who became a bodhisattva in reverse order and appeared in our Saha world as a bodhisattva of Wondrous Enlightenment out of compassion. He is the well-known Avalokitesvara Mahasattva. As a bodhisattva of Wondrous Enlightenment, he does not lose knowledge of his previous lives. That is, the real Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara definitely knows his own identity at rebirth. And this identity is not to be exposed readily. If exposed, he would leave immediately to avoid slandering from ordinary people. The Dalai Lama, on the contrary, was completely ignorant of his identity at birth. He was even chosen by mortals of this mundane world to be the reincarnated Dalai Lama. After being chosen, he was given enormous publicity to gain reputation and profit. This is just the exact opposite of a Bodhisattva-Mahasattva.
Zhang Gongphu points out that all the Dalai Lama has done with his so-called Buddha dharma is to "love" all the women in the world. If any woman catches his fancy, he will express his "love for all." By contrary, the real Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara aims to liberate all sentient beings from lust and desire. How could Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara behave like the Dalai Lama, who publicly encourages followers of Tibetan “Buddhism” to carry out sexual practice and seek extreme pleasure throughout the whole body in his books? All Bodhisattva-Mahasattvas are extremely busy salvaging all sentient beings to eliminate self-view, to stay away from the desire-realm, and to attain the fruition of enlightenment. They are so busy that they don't even have time to take a break. How could they be the same as those lamas who claim to be reincarnated ”Buddhas and bodhisattvas,” who walk around leisurely hand in hand with female followers in the daytime, and who get in bed with female disciples to practice the “Highest Yoga Tantra" at night. Bodhisattvas of Wondrous Enlightenment are Bodhisattva-Mahasattvas who have attained an extremely high level of practice and have long eliminated the lust and desire. By contrast, those lamas, who walk around and hold the female's hand tightly, practice copulation tantra frequently; the Dalai Lama, who advocates the Couple-Practice Tantra in his books, also secretly practices copulation tantra; they all fall into the states of the conscious mind. Do you think they have eliminated their desires? Do you think they have detached themselves from the greed of the desire-realm or eliminated self-view and realized the First Fruit? The answer is loud and clear: NO!
CEO Zhang further indicates that for anyone who does not attain actual enlightenment but drops hints that he is a saint, he basically violates the Buddhist precept of no severe deception. Anyone who often has affairs with different women also violates the precept of no sexual misconduct. Based on the Buddhist monastic precepts, these people shall fall into hell after death. In fact, all the lamas are only non-Buddhist ordinary people and they should not pose as lofty “saints” and accept money offerings from their followers. Even worse, they use expedient false speech to deceive others into thinking they are saints.
CEO Zhang points out that whoever violates good social customs or sexual morality can never be reborn in the human realm, let alone reincarnated as the next Dalai Lama. The whole truth is that the next Dalai Lama would be someone else elected by the ordinary people. He can never be the successor of the current Dalai Lama because the current Dalai Lama has no way to be reborn as a human. For those who truly wish to practice the Buddha dharma should fully understand the Buddhist teaching of the unchangeable causality law in the Three Realms. As the Dalai Lama has already committed numerous unforgivable wrongdoings, do you really think he can decide to be reincarnated as the next Dalai Lama? The answer is a clear NO.
CEO Zhang states sincerely that not only the Dalai Lama but also the gurus, rinpoches, dharma-kings, and living “Buddhas” of Tibetan “Buddhism” are no exception. On the other hand, great bodhisattvas manifest themselves as human beings in order to save all those who have a karmic connection with them. It is certain that bodhisattvas would help practitioners to eliminate self-view and attain the First Fruit, or even get enlightened and become real bodhisattvas. In contrast, lamas of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism constantly fool around with female followers, practicing the “Highest Yoga Tantra” day after day. How could you believe such men would be the reincarnations of great bodhisattvas? Moreover, there are “tens of thousands” of dharma-kings and living “Buddhas” among the four sects of Tibetan “Buddhism,” namely the Gelug, Kagyu, Nyingma, and Sakya. There is no better way to say that these self-proclaimed titles are merely a set up, and those dharma-kings and living “Buddhas” are all “being selected” within the Tibetan Buddhist system with a view to accepting offerings of fame and profit.
Finally, CEO Zhang suggests that we should have wisdom as our guidance for learning the pure and orderly Buddha dharma but not the evil and filthy practice. Therefore, we should use wisdom to judge what is the correct Buddha dharma and what is merely counterfeit Buddhism that we ought to stay away from. (Reported by Guo Fengyan) 20111021
