I'm in two minds about this guy. Apparently Tibet was a serfdom with the monks on top of society before the Chinese took over, basically indentured servitude.

The Dalai Lama has also made some comments that have raised my eyebrows such as calling Indians lazy compared to Chinese people, that's pretty rich coming from a Buddhist monk who has never tolled away in harsh conditions and gets to fly first class around the world. Not a good thing to say about your host country. He also said that if there was ever a female Dalai Lama she must be good looking not ugly, which makes me think he sleeps around and isn't a celibate monk.

I also think he was a western stooge to get back against communist China and now that the west somewhat relies on China they have abandoned him and you hardly see him on TV these days.

Having said that, I've been to McLeodGanj/Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh and it's a great place. Well worth a visit, it's a 4 hour drive from Amritsar and Jalandhar, breathtaking views and the Tibetans are nice friendly people.

Some say he's the herald of the antichrist. ?

Dalai Lama: “I Admire Sikhism, Never Seen a Sikh Beg

His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s pilgrimage to the Golden Temple that stands in the centre of the ‘sarovar’, the tank of holy water, at the centre of 

the Harmandir Sahib, the holiest place of worship in Sikhism in Amritsar, Punjab, India on November 9, 2019.
The Buddhist leader had this to say about Guru Nanak, 

“Guru Nanak he himself took a pilgrimage to Mecca. That shows religious harmony. Also, imagine his followers, no caste system, that’s a great thing. So I whole heartedly admire Sikhism: No caste system. Then the ‘sardar ji’, wherever they live they are hard working. I never saw a Sardar ji as a beggar. No, all are hard working. Wonderful. So please carry this tradition continuously. The world needs this kind of strength “

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
