in thread A Level Playing Field
Okay, I am the same Monk who pointed out that Dalai was not a holly man. To make two things clear:
1) I am fully aware of the procedure how Dalai is picked to every detail, but as blazer pointed out, that was not I talked. I didn't talk about the religious procedure, but how the western countries used Dalai as a political figure. And I am particularly talking about THIS Dalai, although several earlier Dalai were used by the western countries in the same way.
2) Whether Dalai is the holly figure of his religion does not make him a holly man according to the moral standard that is widely accepted today. The way this religion is practiced in front of the world today, for public relationship reason, is totally different from what it did 70 years ago back in Tibet, before the Chinese government brought Tibet back to China. It is true that lots of other religions did evil things way back, but not last century.
Have you ever visited Tibet with your eyes wide open?
