Updated ToS regarding Shugden practices

Post by Dan74 »

The management of this forum have decided to clarify the board’s position on the subject of Shugden to avoid any possibility of misinterpretation.

All the heads of the Tibetan Buddhist schools have explained how negative the practice is - both because of its highly sectarian nature and its serious detrimental effects to a person’s well-being.

As per the Terms of Service, practices and material related to Shugden/Dolgyal are explicitly prohibited on Dharma Wheel by the management of the website since we follow the recommendation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The discussion of or linking to material from groups and individuals that promote them, such as Geshe Kelsang Gyato's 'New Kadampa Tradition' (NKT) or Tsem Tulku Rinpoche's 'Kechara' are not welcome and will be removed.

In addition, topics critical of these organisations and teachings will also be removed because "bad publicity is also publicity". Furthermore the common advice is to ignore them instead of nursing the bad energy by attention.

If you have any relevant information, please don't start a topic but write a PM to our team. Thank you. :namaste:
