On the surface the quote is all sweet, simple, and syrupy, designed for ingestion by a generation brainwashed by humanism and universalism. And coming from a Nobel Peace Prize winner, the political and spiritual leader of six million Tibetan people, it certainly seems credible. Other notable quotes of the Dalai Lama include:

  • “The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s own reason . . . “
  • “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”
  • “My religion is kindness.”
  • “All major religious traditions carry basically the same message . . . “

First some facts: The Dalai Lama is believed by his followers to be the reincarnation of those Lamas before him (in effect a god), and each successor is chosen by divination/sorcery. The current Dalai Lama is thought to be one in a line of 14 successive incarnations. Tibetan Buddhism teaches that this lineage is protected by a hideous female guardian spirit/demon, named Palden Lhamo (aka Lilith, Jezebel), pictured here:

The Dalai Lama is feted by world religious and political leaders, always beaming with his ever-present, beguiling smile. He may be a nice guy, but he’s dead wrong about religion. To reference the quotes above: 1) Our own hearts are not a temple, but our hearts are desperately wicked without Christ (Jeremiah 17:9); 2) the ultimate authority is Jehovah and His Word, not any individual; 3) The purpose of our lives is to glorify God (1 Cor. 10:31); 4) Kindness is a virtue, but not a saving grace, and 5) All religions do not carry the same message (John 14:6). These are but a few reasons I say, the Dalai Lama lies.

 


An encouraging word:  WHAT IS TRUTH?“What is truth?” That cynical question posed to Christ by Pilate (John 18:38) has puzzled philosophers for ages. Few who ponder its meaning bother to check out the answer Jesus gave to Thomas (John 14:6): “I am the truth.” Some truth may be found in the ethics of world religions and in the investigations of science. There is a measure of truth in philosophy and sociology. But ultimate spiritual truth can only be found one place, in the person of Christ, His life and teachings and revelation. Most important, He declared himself to be the only way to God. That is exclusive, and that is Truth.
