Does Ogyen Trinley Dorje really support China’s occupation of Tibet?

Picture of Ogyen Trinley Dorje from back in 2011 when his people were floating the idea of his succeeding HHDL as the leader of the Tibetan people the old man instagramed to illustrate this issue of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss whether or not, as the leader of his faction of the Karma Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism, he betrayed the people of Tibet, oh how the fortunes of the young Karmapa Yangsi have fallen since those heady days

The old man was asked by a reader of this blog if his recent characterization of Ogyen Trinley Dorje as a collaborator in Tibet’s occupation were fact or fiction.

He thinks it a fact.

Reasonable people can disagree with him.


Sally replies.

“I googled it and found a piece in the Guardian from back in 2011 which discusses the issue.”

Is the Karmapa an agent of Beijing or a political scapegoat?

Sally continues.

“There appears to be a basis for the accusation.”

Virginia replies.

“According to the Guardian.”

Virginia adds.

“The Tibetan people obviously think otherwise.”

Karl replies.

“You say that like you think how Tibetans think of Ogyen Trinley Dorje is a good thing.”

Karl adds.

“Perhaps it is time for Tibetans to think differently about this subject for a change.”

Sally replies.

“I personally don’t care what Tibetans think about anything.”

Sally adds.

“What good has how Tibetans think of anything done them over the past fifty plus years of Tibet’s occupation?”

Caroline replies.


Caroline adds.

“OTD is soft on China.”

Virginia replies.

“Ogyen Trinley Dorje is the future of Tibet.”

Karl replies.

“As part of China.”

All of which brings us back to whether or not Ogyen Trinley Dorje supports China’s occupation of Tibet.

End scene. Fini.
