The Dalai Lama exposes a part of Tibetan Buddhism that is rarely seen to the outside world, when he abuses a small child by asking him to ‘suck’ his tongue.
In a video that has now gone viral, a young boy appearing to be younger than ten years old approached the microphone and shyly asked the Dalai Lama, “Can I hug you?”
The Dalai Lama allows the young boy to approach and give him a hug. The boy timidly wraps his arms around the religious icon in a very sweet hug. Then shockingly, the Dalai Lama points to his lips, and says, “then I think finally here also.”
The boys seems to be a bit confused and moves his head cautiously towards the Dalai Lama, but then the boys face is pulled up and in for a full kiss on the lips with the 87 year old leader. Not yet satisfied, the Dalai Lama then shockingly demands the boy, “And suck my tongue,” poking his tongue out for the boy to suck as commanded.
This open abuse of an innocent young boy has shocked the world, but this abuse of young boys happens regularly and unreported in Tibetan Buddhist temples. It has been hidden until now.
In his earth-shattering biography, LEAVING BUDDHA, former Buddhist monk, Lama Tenzin Lahkpa, rips the cover off and reveals this dark child-abusing secret hidden deep in the religious culture of Tibetan Buddhism. Tenzin studied directly under the Dalai Lama and saw first hand the abuse that older men had on their dakinis. A dakini is often the term for someone who is used for sexual pleasure, like a young boy, by Tibetan lamas.
“I had heard my brothers use the word before, but I hadn’t heard many people use it since I had been living at the temple.” Tenzin shares in his book, “Many of the lamas at our temple had secret wives that they would sneak out to meet, while others had dakinis, but I never imagined they would use the boy monks for this.”
Tenzin’s fellow monks also commented on the practice, “These lamas think they can do whatever they want and get away with it. They walk around like they are so holy and enlightened, but so many of them are child rapists.”
The Dalai Lama’s Twitter account gives the reason for asking the boy to suck his tongue with, “His Holiness often teases people he meets in an innocent and playful way, even in public and before cameras.”
Tenzin, who is now a Christian, highlights why the Dalai Lama thought he could do this in public when he said, “The lamas are powerful individuals, and their power goes largely unchecked because they answer to no one outside of ecclesiastical authority. The Tibetan temples deal with sexual fantasies as they see fit and answer to no one on the outside about their practices.”
Tenzin’s redemption story in LEAVING BUDDHA is the only known Tibetan Buddhist lama who has come to Christ and openly shared his testimony. He was almost murdered for becoming a Christian and has risked everything to tell the world the truth about Buddhism.
