Dorje Shugden Controversy - Claims of Chinese Government Involvement

Claims of Chinese Government Involvement

It is claimed that the Chinese Communist Government has used the Dorje Shugden issue to split the Tibetan people and counter the influence of the 14th Dalai Lama. Although the English version of one of the main Dorje Shugden website does not reveal any linkage to the Chinese Government, the Chinese language version of the same website claims that Manjusri, of whom Dorje Shugden was a reincarnation, was originated from the Shanxi Province in the People's Republic of China, and regularly reports news such as "Gyaincain Norbu received by the premier Wen Jiabao".

It means acknowledging that the teenager is growing up and has the right to participate in decisions that affect his or her life.
    Laurence Steinberg (20th century)
