Someone just posted this info as a comment on my blog:
The latest news I have received is not very long but quite important on many levels from very reliable sources. The Abbots of Sera Je, Sera Mey, Gaden Jangtse, Gaden Shartse, Drepung Gomang and Drepung Loseling were summoned to Dharamsala by Prime Minister of Exile Tibetan Govt Professor Samdong Rinpoche very recently. Samdong Rinpoche scolded the Abbots for PUSHING THE SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN OF ALL MONKS TO RENOUNCE SHUGDEN IN THREE GREAT SEATS OF SERA, GADEN AND DREPUNG!!!
He said that their insistence on the signature campaigns has made personal difficulties for H.H. the Dalai Lama. (I would presume the court case and also the bad media regarding religious discrimination)
The ironic fact is that HH himself pushed for it through the Abbots. We can see the videos of HH praising the monasteries who has expelled the monks who wish to continue the practice and encourages more of it.
So perhaps this is a sign that the ban by HH is starting to have a negative effect on his reputation? extracted from dorjeshugden.com forum
