    Re: Down With The Dalai Lama

    I think it's refreshing to hear that even highly revered citizens have flaws. The Dalai Lama has admitted he's not divine. He also suggested that the Tibetans go back to drawing the name of the next Dalai Lama out of a jar. Since then he's said he might not reincarnate again, to which the people freaked out and reminded him it's not up to him, it's up to them.

    On the other hand, it's important to know if the idolization factor allows people to commit terrible acts due to selective blindness of the followers... like with Mother Theresa increasing the suffering of her patients for her own religious purposes... and potentially with the Dalai Lama encouraging Tibetans to return to Tibet to get his little Lama system back in place.

    Buddhism is not meant to be turned into a personality cult... that's just a tangent that the objects of the cults would put an end to if it doesn't corrupt them.
