Kashag

Tashi delek, :)

What would you thinks about a democratic system in the Kashag?

Or about which Tibetan Tradition would rule after the death of the Dalai Lama 14?
My suggestion would be that every Tibetan Traditionwould rule during 5 years.

Best wishes for our individual practice

Dear Friend

om svasti

The Jonang have never been interested in the exercise of political power. It is not consonant with our View, nor does it bode well for the Dharma, as experience shows.

It is up to the Tibetan people how they wish to be governed. I am not Tibetan, and therefore will not offer any suggestions.

I do wish for them, as i do for all peoples, freedom and happiness.

Tashi delek Tashi Nyima, :)

Thanks for your reply.

Yes it is very good from you and Jonang, not to be enggaged into political affairs, i do repect that opinion very much.
A Buddhist should not be active into political affairs.

Allready the Buddha Shakyamuni did show this to us by leaving his palace and to become a monk. :bow:

Considering that the 14th Dalai Lama has worked incredibly hard to move the Tibetan exile community toward a democratic system it would be pretty terrible if they went back to some kind of "ruling tradition" scenario.
Since there isnt a single ruling religious lineage now I dont see why anyone would ever want to go back to such a problematic system, unless of course they had some kind of agenda.
