The Dalai Lama’s Recognition of HH Ogyen Trinle

Dear Dharmafriends,

one of the most often heard argument why Ogyen Trinle was the “real” 17th Karmapa ist the fact that the Dalai Lama acknoledged him and nobody else. Already we have to recall that he was mislead by Situpa and Gyaltsab who told him that all the regents would agree in the choice of Ogyen Trinle. Than he had a prophetic dream, which indeed fits on many tibetan valleys – it is not precise at all.

On top of it unlike as so many rinpoches, lamas and true devotees of Tibetan Buddhism I have no confidence in the Dalai Lama’s statements about reincarnations. Why? Because since the third Dalai Lama he claims to know about reincarnations in order to reach his political aims. As we find in the book “The Story of Tibet: Conversations with the Dalai Lama” by Thomas Laird on page 145: “The Third Dalai Lama publicly proclaimed that he was a reincarnation of the priest Phagpa and that Altan was a reincarnation of Kublai Khan.” That’s Politics of reincarnation! Don’t think that the statements of the Dalai Lama about reincarnations are always true, otherwise he would be the reincarnation of the Sakya’s regent Phagpa…
