An Honoured Visitor

Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak, a Tibetan designated by China as a 'living Buddha' in the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism which mysteriously identifies "reincarnated soul boys", very young boys who appear somehow to be imbued with the spirit of the living Buddhas that have gone before in a long tradition that produced the Dalai Lama, is on a visit to Canada.

Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak happens also to be a deputy representing Tibet in China's National Peoples' Congress.

He is there because he is at one with China's determination to suppress Tibet's heritage, history and traditions, complacent with China's claims that Tibet is but a province of China. He owes his 'living Buddha' status, after all, to Chinese invention, that sought to undermine the legitimacy of the true 'living Buddha' and replace him with their carefully selected representative.

"We have agreed to respect each other's sovereignty, territorial integrity and abide by the principle of one China" he commented, speaking in his official capacity, in explaining precisely why Canada and more specifically Prime Minister Stephen Harper erred catastrophically when he met officially with the Dalai Lama, as a sign of respect from one head of state to another.

"When your prime minister met with someone engaged in separatist activity aimed at splitting China, it was a gesture showing support", he complained. He appeared in Ottawa to lead an official Chinese public-relations delegation on a tour of Canada and the United States. The purpose being to persuade both countries to forget about the dreadfully misguided claims of the Dalai Lama and the people of Tibet.

Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak observed that Canadians would be equally as offended as China is, should Chinese government elites ever have met with separatist activists from Quebec, lending credence to their 'splitism'. Equating Quebec's move for independence with that of Tibetans agitating for a return to autonomy. Inferring a relativity that doesn't in fact, exist.

This is China's way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the exile of the Dalai Lama, and coincidentally conducting a media event introducing "Tibet Serf Liberation Day", for China most certainly did not invade Tibet, a historically self-contained and autonomous nation and country. Rather China liberated the people of Tibet from the oppressive thrall of a hideous theocracy that enslaved them.

Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak owes his position to China's strictures against Tibetan tradition. The next in line to the Dalai Lama had been identified and groomed, as the Panchen Lama, following the traditional course of identification and grooming. That young boy somehow disappeared from view. He was replaced by illustrious China's choice of replacement as Panchen Lama.

Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak, who is indebted to China for the great honour bestowed upon himself as a Buddhist luminary, obviously knows nothing of the plight of thousands of Tibetans who have been imprisoned without charges, legal counsel and fair trials.
