Don't play play

Ok, I am biased on this issue.
Invited by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (which is pro-independent Taiwan), His Holiness Dalai Lama is now on a humanitarian visit to Taiwan's Hsiaolin village where 571 people have died in Typhoon Morakot, to pray for peace for them.  Taiwan's China-friendly President Ma Ying-jeou has decided not to meet the Dalai Lama in a bid not to infuriate China further. However, as expected, China is still angry. 

In fact, China is not happy and opposes whichever countries the Dalai Lama chooses to visit. I would think, instead of making all these surface vehement objections,  China should instead, focus on giving more than necessary aid to Taiwan at this moment, with no strings attached.
Nonetheless, to me personally, it is never wise to trifle with someone who is God-equivalent, as such actions do have serious consequences. In this case, Dalai Lama is a Living Buddha, being the emanation of the Thousand-Armed Chenrezig (Guan Yin), the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
It's like a man being robbed of his own house.... the robber chased the man out of his house, the robber continued to stay in the man's house, and YET at the same time, kept stalking and haunting the poor homeless man!

Live and let live lah, China.

"We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves." ~ His Holiness Dalai Lama


  1. i can never understand why china is so peeved at HH Dalai Lama after so many years. He has already declare that he sought autonomy for Tibet but china is obviously still very sore over historical issues.

    I think it is because HH Dalai Lama "embarassed" china to the world with her communist atrocities committed against Tibet ?

  2. BTC, I think it's a matter of "face" that China has to continually harass HHDL. I could not believe the shabby reception HHDL received in Taiwan eg. 15,000 audience capacity reduced to 1,500 and press interviews cancelled. Most countries would give an arm and leg to have His Holiness visit their country. To China and Taiwan, I would say... holy shit. :P
