The earlier Dalai Lamas were known to seize monasteries who didn’t belong to their sect, party, lived lavishly, and have destroyed Buddhist writings that contradicted their sayings. The history of the Dalai Lama was riddled with decadent hypocrisy.
The Tibetan monks of the 1950s first and foremost feared the communist principles of egalitarianism more than anything else, which would have put them out of power.
Tibet was sexist, and had an extremely rigid, feudal class system, which left the majority of the population living in deplorable conditions. There was bitter poverty everywhere, and much of this was justified by “Buddhist principles” such as “Karma.”
The Chinese abolished Tibetan slavery and serfdom, heavy taxes, and reduced unemployment. They also established schools, electrical systems, and running water, and even distributed land. Meanwhile, Tibetan monks continued to resist progress, including the Dalai Lama.
The Dalai Lama then claimed that the Chinese communists wiped out 1.2 million Tibetans, but the official records prove otherwise. Had 1.2 million really been killed, Tibet would have been virtually empty, and furthermore, Chinese troops in Tibet were actually spread about thinly.
The Dalai Lama admitted he received millions of dollars from the CIA in the 1960s, and was payed over $180,000 himself.
The Dalai Lama has warmed up up to reactionaries, and pro-Nazis numerous times.
The Dalai Lama called for Pinochet, the Chilean dictator, to be released from British imprisonment.
The Dalia Lama owned slaves, and lived in a wealthy palace.
He asserts that Marxism is based on the principles of morality, but that is not true.
When he did assert he was a Marxist he also made sure to say: “Those who live in abundance, it is a good thing to be rich. Those are the fruits for deserving actions, the proof that they have been generous in the past,” and he said to the poor: “There is no good reason to become bitter and rebel against those who have property and fortune. It is better to develop a positive attitude.”
The Dalai Lama also claimed that World War II was justified, as was Iraq, US intervention in Afghanistan, and Yugoslavia.
He attempts to fuse idealism with Marxism; Marxism is strictly dialectical materialist.
He also denounced Leninism. If anything, he is a Tibetan quasi-“red” nationalist.
The Dalai Lama spent many years of his exile from Tibet calling to destroy socialism. It was primarily when the US government stopped funding him in the 1970s that he began to declare he was a socialist, no doubt to gain support from the revisionist Soviet Union.
He has never contributed to any form of Marxian theory.
