My Spiritual Journey
My Spiritual Journey Personal Reflections, Teachings, and Talks By Bstan-ʼdzin-rgya-mtsho Book - 2010

For most people Buddhism is a religion of tolerance and peace. So, when the Buddhist monk Dalai Lama speaks against injustice, people listen with respect. But this icon of peace hasn’t uttered any word of wisdom or compassion about what is happening to the Rohingya community in the Rakhine province under the brutal siege of Buddhist monks on the street and atrocities committed by the Burmese military. No disrespect intended, but his definition of 'oneness of humanity' sounds feigned, because apparently he is unable to make his own people practice what he preaches. Undisputed myths are fascinating and ironically always had a good market in the West.
