Western followers of the deity Shugden have the right to worship if they wish, the Dalai Lama
has never told them not to do so. However,
when they are extremely aggressive towards His Holiness the Dalai Lama, it
naturally concerns the six million Tibetans. For example, a few days ago a
white woman in Tibetan Buddhist robes verbally attacked the Dalai Lama, the 78
year-old leader of Tibetan people who had just arrived in San Francisco after
tirelessly traveling from continent to continent, and city to city with no time
to rest. Any other politician would have ignored her, perhaps offering her a
fake smile. Not for the Dalai Lama, faking emotions is not in his blood. He
spoke to her, trying to explain things in a way any Tibetan lama or monk who
went to debating school habitually would, in, what he often calls, his broken
English. Yet, the woman kept reciting her mantra, "you are lying,"
right to his face.
