There are many people who claim that the New Kadampa Tradition wishes to harm the Dalai Lama and that some of our practices shorten the duration of the Dalai Lama’s lifespan. However, this is completely untrue. There is absolutely no evidence to support these accusations. If anyone within the NKT is developing anger or resentment toward the Dalai Lama, they are not practicing the teachings taught at NKT Dharma Centers.
The refutation of this smear on the New Kadampa Truth site:
Truth: This is not true. The Dalai Lama is not our enemy. Harming other living beings goes against the teachings of Buddha and every precept in the Kadampa tradition. Our only enemies are the delusions in our minds, such as ignorance, anger and attachment. Dorje Shugden practitioners like those in the NKT are simply asking the Dalai Lama to stop harming himself and others by suppressing religious freedom. We have never expressed a single malicious intent toward him. We only ask of him that he practice what he preaches (tolerance, respect for differences, unity in diversity, etc.) by lifting his ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden.
