His Holiness the Dalai Lama on military parade?

I can’t imagine the Buddha of Compassion assisting in a Military Parade in Mexico where the c. The president intends to hand over Public Security to the Army.

On the morning of this Wednesday, September 7, the C. president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador unveiled on the screen in the room the list of 11 special guests who are supposed to accompany him on the Cry of Independence and the military civic parade of 16 of Septemberwhere it intends, if everything goes according to plan, to formally hand over the National Guard to the Secretary of National Defense, regardless of whether it violates the Constitution that governs us

Among the special guests is the philosopher Noam Chomsky – he is very old he says AMLO-, the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi; John and Gabriel Shipton, father and brother of Julian Assange, with what it implies for Washington; the former president of Bolivia, Evo Morales; the former president of Uruguay, José Mujica; Aleida Guevara, daughter of the legendary “Che”; the family of Dr. Luther King; the family of Nelson Mandela and perhaps the daughter of César Chávez, Leader of the Chicano movement.

And surprise! on the list released Lopez Obrador in the morning – on the screen -. there are two religious leadersthe Jesuit priest James Martin SJ, who, as we know, exercises a very particular ministry dedicated to those he calls “LGBT Catholics and close to Pope Francis, and His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lamathe Buddha of Compassion.

There is nothing confirmed about that invitation!

We immediately go to the official website of religious leader and report that His Holiness will be at the Main Tibetan Temple in Dharamsala giving “two days of teachings on Chandrakirti’s Entrance to the Middle Way.”

Why make that announcement of the C. President?

Just draw attention not to address security issues, such as the unfortunate events in Sonora.

Maybe note. Let’s imagine the religious leader dressed in his maroon and gold monk’s robes witnessing a scream and a Military Paradeand free to annoy China.

I must specify that I admire and have always welcomed the Dalaiwhich if confirmed would be the fifth visit to Mexico.

The Dalai he has come to Mexico four times; the first one in 1989; the second time was in October 2004, he participated in his capacity as Leader of buddhism Mahayana in an ecumenical meeting with 9 leaders religious in the Metropolitan Cathedral; In addition, he had meetings with the faithful and sympathizers, as well as with some personalities from public life; no one from the government dared to receive him, except Mrs. Martha Sahagun, the president’s wife.

I remember that on October 6 it was announced that I would be in the plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies, but the pressure from the Chinese embassy was harsh and the legislators backed down. they hardly dared to greet him out of courtesy in a small room.

The third time the Dalai He came to our country in September 2011 and President Calderón received him on a private visit at the official residence of Los Pinos. There was a brief official statement that read: “In the framework of this meeting, the President reiterated the adherence of the Government of Mexico to the principle of ‘one China’ and the recognition of the full sovereignty of the People’s Republic of China over the Autonomous Region of Tibet.” That did not please Beijing.

At that time, relations with the People’s Republic of China were damaged. Proof of this was the cancellation of commercial exchange programs, such as the one for pork.

Things were put back together with the entry of President Peña Nieto, especially with the state visit in June 2013 of Xi Jinping, the new president of China.

And now, AMLO launches the special invitation?

So that?


Until this moment there is no confirmation; but what if it materializes?

What will China say?

Last year, Xi Jinping became the first Chinese president to pay an official visit to Tibet since 1990.

It must be said that the Dalai it’s a religious leader and moral figure that brings a message of peace. But he takes advantage of his popularity as a Nobel laureate to denounce the genocide of the Chinese government that oppresses his people.

In March 2011, he resigned from all political positions held by the Tibetan government in exile, to remain only as Leader spiritual; They were replaced by the lawyer Lobsang Sanjay who was elected by 27 thousand 51 votes, 55% of the total electorate.

Who is he Dalai?

He is 87 years old and was born on July 6, 1935 into a peasant family in Takster, a small town in northeastern Tibet, and his first name is Lhamo Toinzhub or Tenzin Gyatso, he is 14 Dalai LamaUntil a few years ago, he was the highest earthly and spiritual figure of the Tibetan government in exile, based in Dharamsala, a city in northern India.

He is the fourteenth reincarnation of Buddha of Compassion for more than 10 million Tibetans and followers.

At two years of age he was recognized as the reincarnation of his predecessor and as such was anointed at age 5.

His monastic education began a year later and at the age of 16, in full religious preparation (he had 9 years left), he had to assume political power when Mao Tse Tung’s people’s army invaded Tibet in the name of socialism and freedom, repressing thousands of people. of citizens to their culture and traditions, prohibiting the use of monasteries and any religious manifestation.

I recommend watching the film “Seven Years in Tibet” released in 1997 and directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud with performances by Brad Pitt and David Thewlis.

At the age of 23, he obtained a graduate degree in philosophy. buddhistand in March 1959 he fled – it is said with the support of the CIA – from the Chinese occupation together with thousands of his compatriots, and since then he has not only managed to keep alive the cause of Tibetan rights his fight for autonomy, but above all its traditions, but it has popularized the buddhism in the West.

Since then he has lived all over the world, and also in Dharamsala, at the foot of the Himalayas in India, the seat of the Tibetan Government in exile, a constitutional democracy since 1963.

To say that he lives there is symbolic, since he spends his time traveling around the world, lecturing, receiving honorary doctorates and regularly publishing books that are read all over the world.

In 1989 he received the Nobel Peace Prize for the coherence of his pacifist convictions. It’s one of the few religious leaders who have been recognized with the award, the others are Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu.

But Dalai he does not behave like a medieval monk, but on the contrary, he remains well informed and attentive to the different political changes in the world, he also sent condolences for the death of Mikhail Gorbachev, “I pray from my heart for my friend and offer my condolences to her daughter, Irina Virganskaya, to members of her family, and to her friends and supporters,” she wrote, congratulating Liz Truss on her election as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom: “Historically, we Tibetans have enjoyed a long and unique to Great Britain.

Who made the invitation? Dalai?

If we come to Mexico, we will welcome His Holiness, but with all due respect, I cannot imagine him witnessing a Military ParadeIt goes against his principles.

I think the Dalai It’s not serious. Years ago, the current Minister of the Court, Loretta Ortiz, then Human Rights adviser to the virtual president of Mexico, dared to confirm that Pope Francis would participate in the pacification forums to be held in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke immediately denied that Pope Francis had any involvement in such forums…

P.S. The ministers cannot leave things as they are in terms of informal preventive detention. There are more than 92,000 people awaiting sentence in Mexican prisons.

They all agree that informal preventive detention is “disproportionate -criminal!-, and automatic”, in contravention of the constitutional principles that govern preventive detention, (such as) the presumption of innocence and the principle of proportionality.

But how to amend this matter, without touching the Constitution?

This Thursday the issue will be taken to the plenary session, the rapporteur minister Luis María Aguilar will perhaps withdraw his proposal and redo the project to harmonize it… He cannot leave it like that…
