Dalai Lama says China’s efforts to destroy Buddhism will fail


The Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader, has harshly criticized China’s efforts to eradicate Buddhism, claiming that China is attempting to target and kill Buddhism but will fail.

On the third and final day of the teaching program at Kalachakra Maidan in Bodh Gaya on Saturday, the Tibetan spiritual leader accused China of viewing Buddhism as poisonous and waging a systematic war against it by destroying its institutions, but that this effort had been completely ineffective.

“We have strong faith in Buddha dharma, when I visit trans-Himalayan regions, I find local people very devoted to dharma and it is the case in Mongolia and China too though the system (Chinese government) sees dharma as poison and tried to destroy it, they are not successful. Buddhism harmed by the Chinese government. Buddhism could not be destroyed by China. Even today, many people believe in Buddhism in China,” at the Bodh Gaya event Dalai Lama said.

Despite the Chinese government demolishing several Buddhist Viharas, the Dalai Lama claimed that the country’s Buddhist population has remained stable.

He claimed that China still has a significant number of Buddhist monasteries and that its people are deeply religious.

The high-ranking monk wished that the Dalai Lama would go to Sri Lanka and assist in resolving the economic problems that the nation has been experiencing lately.
