European Press Critically Exams the Dalai Lama and Kalachakra Rituals While the American Press Naps in Washington, D.C.

Comments on a Press Release

Monday, July 11, 2011

I just ran across a press release that gives some vital information on the Kalachakra Initiation that is occurring in Washington, DC. Here it is. It  provides very critical insights on what appears to be happening in Washington, DC. Hope you find it of assistance.

‘The Kalachakra Initiation in Washington DC is the one of the largest and most spectacular events Tibetan Buddhism ever has performed in the West. Nearly all high ranked Lamas are present from around the globe including the young Karmapa, who seemingly is being billed by the D. L. as his spiritual successor. So estimate that 100.000 participants will be attending the Kalachakra ceremonies over the ten day period (July 6-16,2011) including some high ranking political figures.’ Although the Dalai Lama recently resigned from his position as King of the Tibetan-Government-in-Exile and boasts of “separation of Church and State, he has already had political meetings with US top politicians including Speaker of the House John Boehner, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA), and several other representatives.

Because of the complexity and potential consequences of the initiation, it is imperative that this  issue be discussed into an open and critical debate.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to find journalists that are not Tibet-o-philes blogging at the ceremony.  While they provide interesting observations, the difficult analytical work of the investigative journalist is missing. Take a look below at the list of hard hitting European articles. What a difference. Where are the Aikman’s and Woodwards?  JCS

The Kalachakra-Tantra

A Ritual of Peace or a Totalitarian Temptation?

From July 6 through 16, 2011 the XIV Dalai Lama will offer a Kalachakra-Tantra-Ritual in the heart of the U.S. capital, Washington, DC. In Sanskrit, Kalachakra means “The Wheel of Time.” The Kalachakra Tantra, as well the sacred text used in its ritualistic performance, is considered to be “the pinnacle of all Buddhist systems.”

Included in the Kalchakra Tantra are: the construction of a so-called Sand Mandala, which symbolizes the cosmos, an apocalyptic prophecy known as the Shambhala Myth, and several top-secret initiations.

This complicated mystical ritual is presented by the Dalai Lama and the organizers of the event as a dignified and uplifting contribution to world peace, which fosters compassion with all living beings, inter-religious dialog, interracial tolerance, ecological awareness, sexual equality, inner peace, spiritual development, and bliss for the third millennium (Kalachakra for World Peace). One of the Dalai Lama’s mottos for the whole performance is: “Because we all share this small planet earth, we have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature.”

But are the Kalachakra Tantra and the Shambhala Myth truly pacifist? Do they really encourage harmony and cooperation among people? Do they make any real contribution to freedom and justice, equality of gender, religious tolerance or ethnic reconciliation? Are they a comprehensive, politically humanist, democratic and non-violent contribution to world peace?

Andrei Znamenski, Associate Professor of History at Alabama State University and author of an exciting book about the Shambhala Myth in Bolshevist Russia (Red_Shambhala – Magic, Prophecy, and Geopolitics in the Heart of Asia) came to another conclusion:

“It might be shocking for many readers, but let me start by saying that the Kalachakra Tantra has nothing to do with peace, compassion­, and freedom. In Tantric Buddhism it was a misogynist­ic quest performed by male initiates to accumulate sacred power of particular Buddhist deities (the lower seven initiation­s are open for all) and, through blending male and female fluids (top secret initiation­s that involved sexuality)­, to eventually turn themselves into superhuman androgynou­s beings. Moreover, part of the Kalachakra teaching was a militant Shambhala prophecy, a call for a Buddhist holy war against enemies of Buddhism.”
.

Andrei Znamenski is not alone in this assessment. The Kalachakra Tantra and Tibetan Buddhism are coming more and more into focus by critics. (See: Critical Links to Lamaism) In their groundbreaking work The Shadow of the Dalai Lama – Sexuality, Magic and Politics in Tibetan Buddhism, German cultural philosophers, Victor and Victoria Trimondi, not only provide surprising, previously ignored research but also undertake a well-founded interpretation of Lamaism, rendering the Tibetan-Buddhist worldview understandable for Western readers through a comparison with European religious traditions.

The text pays particular attention to an extensive analysis of the Kalachakra Tantra and its political, ideological, and spiritual implications. (The book appeared in 1999 through the reputable German publishing house Patmos Verlag. The English version is online. It became the standard work on the critical examination of Lamaism and the metapolitics of the Dalai Lama.

In the eighties Victor Trimondi did support the Tibetan religious leader, organized several international congresses and other events with him and featured books about him in his own publishing house, the Dianus-Trikont-Verlag.) In their book the two authors describe in detail the secret rituals of sexual magic in the higher initiations of the Kalachakra Tantra (The Public and the Secret Initiations); they have shown the religious-political intention of the Tantra to establish a world-wide Buddhocracy with a sacred world-ruler (The ADI Buddha); they discuss the intolerance of the Tantra vis-à-vis the monotheist religions, its militant and aggressive warrior-ideology, and its vision of a religious end-time battle against Islam (The Aggressive Myth of Shambhala); and they show how the Tantra is interpreted by the Dalai Lama spokesman Robert Thurman as a symbolic and meta-political instrument to conquer western culture by Lamaism (The Buddhocratic Conquest of the West ).

The Trimondis came to very similar conclusions as their American colleague Andrei Znamenski and other critical authors on the topic: “The teachings of the Buddha have so many treasures and wonderful insights, but the philosophy, the vision and the practices of the Kalachakra Tantra are neither compatible with fundamentals of Buddha’s teachings nor with basic principles of Western Enlightenment. Therein are included an apocalyptic war of religion, the aggressive application of super-weapons, radical transgressions of a humanistic moral code, the dissolution of the ego and the soul of the participants of the ritual, the totalitarian subjugation under the will of the guru, the idea of an imperial and global lama-state (Buddhocracy), and the concept of an absolutist world ruler, the Chakravartin.

The sexual rites in the higher initiations of this occult ritual have to be designated as a manipulation of erotic love and a misuse of female energy to produce spiritual and worldly power of men and monks. So the equality of the sexes, democratic decision making, and ecumenical movements are in themselves foreign to the nature of the Kalachakra Tantra.”

The two German cultural philosophers created the Critical Forum Kalachakra to open a wide-ranging debate over the hidden “dark sides” of the Tantra, and  published many other articles, including a pamphlet, Eight Questions to the 14th Dalai Lama on the Topic of the Kalachakra.

During the public Kalachakra Initiation in Graz/Austria directed by the Dalai Lama (2002), the German-speaking media picked up these critiques from the Trimondis and other authors  to discuss the controversial ritual.

  • The Austrian state TV & Radio ORF broadcasted a feature called, “Critique of the ‘Peace Ritual’ of the Dalai Lama in Graz.” ‘Peace Ritual’ has been written in quotations marks to emphasize the ambivalence of the term in this context.
  • Der Standard (The “New York Times” of Vienna) published a cover article with the title, “A Warrior Ritual of the Dalai Lama: The Kalachakra,”
  • The conservative German Weekly Der Rheinische Merkur wrote: “Extremely wild warriors: what is hidden behind the Kalachakra – Thousands have attended the peace ritual of the Dalai Lama. But the ‘Religion of Happiness’ has also its dark sides.”
  • Georg Schmid, Prof. for Religious Studies at the University Zürich (Switzerland) called attention to the fact that the Kalachakra Tantra was the product of the religious war between Buddhists and militant Moslems in India around the turn of the first millennium.  It was under this influence that the Tantra changed fundamental Buddhist principles. “In this time,” said Professor Schmid, “Buddhism had adopted the law of its enemies and had developed a Buddhist concept of a holy war, a forthcoming apocalyptic conflict between friend and foe of the Buddha-way and a future Buddhist world dominium.”
  • Alexander Berzin, a designated Kalachakra expert of the Dalai Lama [JCS comments Berzin is the Dalai Lama’s apologist. So what’s needed are several different perspectives], also confirms that the Tantra proclaims a holy war: “A careful examination of the Buddhist texts, particularly The Kalachakra Tantra literature, reveals both external and internal levels of battle that could easily be called ‘holy wars.’ An unbiased study of Islam reveals the same. In both religions, leaders may exploit the external dimensions of holy war for political, economic, or personal gain by using it to rouse their troops to battle. Historical examples regarding Islam are well known; but one must not be rosy-eyed about Buddhism.”
  • In the meantime, dozens of books, articles, and discussion groups in German and French have carried forward these criticisms and have expanded them–without sparing the person of the Dalai Lama.
  • A lot of the critical voices came also from the Buddhist camp. See, for example, comments to an article about the Kalachakra Initiation 2011 in the Huffington Post.

 

  • The latest high point of this critical wave in Germany was a cover story in Germany’s biggest magazine “Stern” (2009): The two faces of the Dalai Lama – The soft Tibetan and his undemocratic Regime (trans. in English). This article was written by Tilman Müller, the same journalist who uncovered ten years before–with his Austrian colleague Gerald Lehner–the Nazi past of the Dalai Lama’s teacher, Heinrich Harrer: Dalai Lama’s friend: Hitlers Champion (trans. in English). Their sensational discovery caused a protest movement in the Jewish community against the film adaptation of Harrer’s autobiographical book Seven Years in Tibet, with Brad Pitt as Harrer.
  • Very accurately the historian Andrei Znamenskis calls the Kalachakra Tantra “a totalitarian temptation.” In his book Red Shambhala he recounts the story of political and spiritual seekers from West and East who used the Tibetan Buddhist prophecies of the Kalachakra Tantra (the Shambhala Myth) to promote their spiritual, social, and geopolitical agendas and schemes. Red Shambhala proves that people in the Left were no strangers to the occult, and they were equally mesmerized by the Tantra. But even more mesmerized have been people of the far Right.
  • In their second book, Hitler-Buddha-Krishna – An unholy alliance from the Third Reich to the present day (2002) which received international attention, Victor and Victoria Trimondi show how influential Fascists and Nazis used the philosophies, mythologies, visions, and dogmas as well as the religious practices and texts of the spiritual traditions of Asia for glorifying war, and for the deification of the “Führer” and the white race. Some of them have been electrified by the Kalachakra Tantra and the Shambhala-Myth.
  • The Trimondis uncover how the Nazi-Orientalists who prepared the SS Tibet Expedition of Reichsführer Heinrich Himmler have been interested in the ritual, and how members of the SS Ahnenerbe (the brain trust of the SS) wanted to spare the Kalachakra Temple in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) during the siege and barrage of the city by the Deutsche Wehrmacht (1941 – 1944). The Shambhala Myth of the Kalachakra Tantra and its militant ideologies are a topic in the occult literature of the international Neo-Fascist and Neo-Nazi scene. One example is Miguel Serrano, the recently deceased leader of the Chilean National Socialists.
  • Another is Ernesto Mila, former chief of the Spanish National-Socialists, who writes about the Kalachakra-Ritual in his article, The envoys of Hitler in Tibet: “The Kalachakra Tantra and its initiation is not a normal ritual. . . . It is the ‘supreme initiation,’ that ‘assured the renaissance in Shambhala’ at the moment of the last battle against the powers of evil. . . . It is the initiation which is appropriate for the warrior caste.”
  • Another example is the accredited expert on the Orient (and Hitler admirer) Jean Marquès-Rivière who after WW II was convicted in absentia and given the death sentence for turning Jews and Free Masons over to the Gestapo and SS in France. He was the author of a Kalachakra interpretation once popular with some fascist elements. He wrote in his book that the Dalai Lama personally gave a ring to him with the Kalachakra Emblem to demonstrate that he is part of the inner circle of Shambhala adepts. (Kalachakra: Initiation Tantrique du Dalai Lama)  Last but not least, the Japanese Doomsday Guru, Shoko Asahara must be mentioned. He intended a Shambalization of our planet by means of nuclear terror. Asahara was responsible for poisonous gas attacks on Tokyo’s metro in 1995, killing 12 and leaving hundreds injured. The terrorist sect’s leader met the Dalai Lama on several occasions. Even weeks after the first assault, the Dalai Lama called him a “friend, yet not a perfect one.” Only later did the Dalai Lama distance himself from the sect leader. (The Doomsday Guru Shoko Asahara and XIV Dalai Lama).
  • So the “totalitarian temptation” which streams out from the Kalachakra Tantra for all sorts of political and religious fanatics makes it absolutely necessary that the text, commentaries, and the ritual itself are discussed and disputed openly and honestly, especially at this time when the ritual is performed in a place where the power of the world is concentrated: Washington DC. The organizers are very conscious of this political acupuncture point when they write, “The Kalachakra for World Peace 2011 will unfold in a world capital where local actions deeply and globally affect the lives of so many.”

A statement from the Capital Area Tibetan Association, which is putting on the event, also stressed the significance of having it in Washington: “If there is a seed of spirituality in this very city, that seed when it grows is bound to have an effect.” The ritual is to be carried out in the Verizon Center approximately mid-way between the White House and the US Capitol Buildings, just a short stroll from the National Mall.

A Washington Post article states, “Many still see huge significance in his [the Dalai Lama’s] picking the capital of the world’s superpower as the place for a ritual about how to reconcile disunity. Some believe the Kalachakra’s hopeful explanation about how to deal with differences literally will spread through meditators to area bigwigs coping with national debt, wars, environmental disasters and terrorism.”

The article cites Clark Strand, former editor of Tricycle, a Buddhist magazine: “The most significant thing about this is the time and place, 10 years after 9/11, and in a place where big decisions are being made about the planet.”

Yes,10 years after 9/11! But what did happen exactly ten years before 9/11? In 1991 in New York City a so-called Kalachakra Sand Mandala was constructed, then destroyed by the Dalai Lama, and the sand was poured into the water near the World Trade Center. Two years later in 1993 another Wheel of Time (Kalachakra) Sand Mandala was built by Tibetan Monks in the lobby of Tower One. For over thirty days, many of the World Trade Center workers and visitors were invited to participate during the construction of this Mandala. Although these coincidences may be accidental, they prove that these two Kalachakra events were not a remedy for “national debt, wars, environmental disasters and terrorism.” If they did have any magical effect at all, it was to produce exactly the opposite.

RED ALERT WDC ~ The Fear of the LORD

The Fear of the LORD

by James Stephens

Friday, July 15, 2011

A nation drinks a cup it has filled with  its own sin and iniquity. We are all guilty. None of us is innocent. Why do the nations conspire against YHWH and against YESHUA His Anointed One? Nationalism aside. Patriotism aside. Partisanship aside. Kiss the Son, less you perish.

Today, ask yourselves, whom do we serve? This day you must choose. Friday, July 15, a full moon is the half way mark of 2011. The Nation is divided as the President and Congress claim time is running out and face a potential  “economic Armageddon.”  While nearby at the Verizon Center the XIV Dalai Lama, the Kalachakra Master,  sits as the “time god” on the Shambhala Kingdom’s Throne empowering over 10,000 initiates from around the globe, including oracles, shamans,  lamas, an American judge, a former Catholic Bishop. The pluralist pope of peace  invokes over 722 deities, we would call demons, and conducts the Kalachakra (time god) Tantra for the thirty first time (1,500,000  initiates),  ritual rites of possession over the land,  to empower the Adi Buddha, the universal religious emperor, aka the XIV Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Where are the consecrated prayer warriors of old engaging the purveyors of idolatry on our soil in Washington, DC? They cry out from their brittle bones,

“There are giants in the land! BUT FAR GREATER IS HE WHO SITS ON HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN. We are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus our LORD and ask for a release the FEAR OF YHWH UPON WASHINGTON, DC.

Please pray for us in these hours. I need my arms lifted up. I am weary in this battle. 10,000 initiates, including oracles, shamans, and  lamas wage a dark ritual of devilish design in Washington,  DC. Release wisdom and the FEAR of YHWH.

“Standing with you. YHWH raises up a standard against the enemy.”

“Where are the young warriors?

Where two or three are gathered before Your Throne Yeshua, You are there. We agree whatever is bound on earth it shall be done in heaven. Bind these imposters, these principalities and powers who are keeping Your Tibetan, Mongolian, Bhutanese, Nepalese, Sinhalese, Indian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean in bondage. Set the captives free!

“Jesus is LORD. Fear not and fret not. Though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”

“I see Mt. Carmel. I see the thundering rivers of living water that come from His mouth, sweeping and cleansing that which the enemy would seek to flood the nation with. Father we release the Living Waters from Your Throne. We and the atmospheres of the earth reject what the enemy would seek to release. LORD we release Your mighty warrior/binding angels to seal and hold and lock shut every demonic portal open and that they’d seek to open. We loose Your light and salvation over every human soul trapped by the lies of Buddhism.”

“Remember Eagle Rock. Proclaim that He is mightier. “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Behold all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing, and will perish.”  Isaiah 41:10-11

“Thus you shall say to them, “The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under the heavens.” Jeremiah 10:11.”

“Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge; Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; For his molten images are deceitful, and there is no breath in them. They are worthless, a work of mockery; In the time of their punishment they will perish.”

I don’t have many visions, am conservative, but the LORD does give me assignments and at times reveals great things. I had a vision sometime back. I was out on a ledge laying out prostrate on a high place.  On my left from below there were all sorts of foul demons, dragons coming at me. All of the sudden, I looked before me and saw a supernatural, transparent cross and from on high heard amazing thunder from the heavens. And then I was filled with the awesome FEAR OF THE LORD. It flooded my being and I was in absolute AWE of HIS MAJESTY and in Esctasy. The demons fled His PRESENCE immediately. They could not behold HIM. There is NOTHING to Fear, EXCEPT YHWH. He then opened my eyes to the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, the Miracle Mile, Downtown Los Angeles, Glendale, Universal City. Immediately a remarkable shimmering cloud of glory was over the entire area. I then awoke, trembling and full of His awesome Presence. I will never forget the vision.

“There is much prayer being lifted along with the binding here on earth of the demons that have already been bound in heaven. I’m standing beside you.”

“EL ELYON, EL CHAY, we stand with You. You and Your desire to release the Living Waters of Your Creative Voice on the earth and as those to whom You have given authority over creation, we reject which Satan would desire to release unto the earth. We say, NO! But as we are seated with You now in heavenly places in Christ, we come into agreement here on the planet with Your desire in Him and we say, COME! COME! COME! Have Your Way. Have Your Rule.

“And we step by the Spirit into Him and lay hold of DC and the Nation and those moving in the power of darkness. We lay hold of Your Light, Righteousness, Peace, Joy, Holiness, and Love. And we wrap it around them. We invite it in and about them.  We release the vibration of the sound of Your Voice and we welcome You, Ruach Ha’Kodesh at a HOLY higher level to come and brood over that gathering and all its global participants. We release the testimony of the blood of Jesus.”

On Wednesday night there were 1304 lightning strikes on Washington, DC after the National Gatekeepers asked for a release from HIS storehouses, an open display of His displeasure that many Buddhists would be convicted of their sin and be brought to repentance.

Be not be partakers of her plagues. They drink a cup, not His cup. A cup filled with their own designs, greed, avarice, and lust for power. They do not have an ear to hear. They play to crowds saying whatever pleases them. A Golden cup.  A golden calf.

Moses descends with two stone  tablets engraved by the Finger of YHWH to offer  Torah to the people.  In his absence, they instead choose to worship a god of their own making.

15And  Mosheh  turned  and  went  down from  the  mountain,  and  in  his  hand  were the   two   tablets   of   the   Witness,   tablets written on both their sides, written on the one and on the other. 16And   the   tablets   were   the   work   of Elohim, and the writing was the writing of Elohim engraved on the tablets.

19And it came to be, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. And Mosheh’s displeasure burned, and he threw the tablets out of his hands  and  broke  them  at  the  foot  of  the mountain.

And  he  took  the  calf  which  they  had made, and burned it in the fire, and ground it into powder, and scattered it on the face of  the  water  and  made  the  children  of Yisra’el drink it.”

If you will not have communion with the LORD, you have chosen to take the cup of wrath filled with the abominations of your own choosing.

In 2003, I attended the International Buddhist Film Festival at the LA County Museum of Art.  Most of the festival had seemed to be fairly typical as far as film festivals went, except the films and cartoons were built around Buddhist themes. That was until the showing of the documentary film on the Kalachakra directed and produced by Werner Herzog. The crowd that turned out that night was seriously dark. I had arrived later than I anticipated and as I was walking towards the back of the line had occasion to pass by those who were attending that evening. Well dressed, many in black, it seemed that I had stepped into another dimension of darkness. What was it? It was as if I was experiencing, not in myself, but sensing the total absence of the Holy Spirit.  Many in the crowd had already attended the Kalachakra Ceremony in various places around the globe and were gathering to watch one of their own. I was alone.

BUT, what will it be like for them who worship Tibet’s Golden Calf and are partakers of the vile tantric cup of demons, when they stand before the THRONE of the LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH?

Satan, Principalities, Powers, and Demons flee before the PRESENCE OF THE HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, SET APART ONE, BY THE PERFECT SACRIFICE OF  YESHUA HA’MOSHIACH, JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. BY HIS BLOOD WE ARE SAVED.

…YHWH…
