Western Shugden Society – Unlocked? Or was it ever Locked?

This is another one of Tenzin Peljor’s smears refuted. Tenzin Peljor claims to have unlocked the secrets of the Western Shugden Society. He claims on multiple sites (one of which was barred from flickr for storing defamatory material) that the Western Shugden Society is really the New Kadampa Tradition in disguise and then goes through his usual routine of claiming the NKT is a cult (because it says so on the Cult Information Centre website). Interestingly, the main references (links) of the Cult Information Centre about the NKT are Tibetan Government in Exile websites and at least two sites created by or moderated by Peljor. You didn’t have anything to do with those links did you Peljor?

From the New Kadampa Truth website:

Truth: It is the Western Shugden Society (WSS) that is demonstrating against the Dalai Lama, not the NKT. The WSS is an ad hoc coalition of Dorje Shugden practitioners from many different countries, including more Tibetans than Westerners.

Some NKT detractors have created websites and posted on blogs to allege that it is the NKT that is demonstrating against the Dalai Lama because there are many prominent and senior NKT practitioners visible at the demonstrations. However, those who attend the demonstrations do so as individual Dorje Shugden practitioners, not as representatives of the NKT. Everyone who practices Kadam Dharma is a practitioner of Dorje Shugden so it is not surprising that there are a great number of Kadampas supporting the demonstrations.

Nor are they wrong to do so. For the reasons why Kadampa practitioners everywhere oppose the Dalai Lama’s ban of their Protector practice and attempted suppression of their religious tradition, please see www.WesternShugdenSociety.org and www.WisdomBuddhaDorjeShugden.org.”
