Trump Says He Will Turn To Dalai Lama and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh For Spiritual Guidance But Not The Pope

 on Friday, 23 December 2016  

President Elect Donald Trump made yet another headline statement on Friday morning when he stated that he would rather seek guidance from religious leaders like Dalai Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh instead of Pope Francis.

Trump Says He Will Turn To Dalai Lama and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh For Spiritual Guidance But Not The Pope

The statement comes as no surprise to many as Pope Francis made several controversial statements questioning Trumps candidacy and his election win.  He once said Trump is not a christian, adding that ""a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,"

The rift between the two was evident from the beginning of the Election campaign and today's statement by Trump will not be last according to political analysts. 

"Dalai Lama is a great human being with a great sense of humor. I know he mocked me lightly once and that was entertaining to me" Said Trump. "He is a great teacher and spending time with him brings joy. Dalai Lama was wise not to get involved in US politics. In contrast to our Pope who was acing as if he was Hillary Clinton's campaign manager " Trump added with a satirical look on his face. 

"Many American companies including Apple and Microsoft have received amazing spiritual guidance from Zen teachers such as Thich Nhat Hanh and I look forward to talk to these Zen teachers to practice consciousness and mindfulness to better perform as the president to make America truly great again."

  1. The Dalai Lama is not a Zen teacher. (First of all, they are called "Zen Masters".) Rather, he is an incarnate, Tibetan lama who practices and teaches Dzogchen and Vajrayana Buddhism.

  2. Actually, Dzogchen belongs to the Ngyngma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Not to the Gelugpa school of H.H. the Dalai Lama.

  3. Sectarian nitpicking aside, Trump needs all the spiritual guidance he can get, from whatever source. He seems to be completely devoid of even rudimentary compassion or wisdom... he has nowhere to go but up.

  4. Actually Dzogchen is connected with both Bon and Dzogchen and Dalai also studied with Dzogchen masters. The Gelug Kagyu and Sakya Mahamudra are quite equivalent. 'Unknown's' point is the most important one. Engaging skilfully may be important. The Buddha said, You don't talk to a hunter about becoming a vegetarian. But it may be possible to find a way in to help. Even a cannibal may be dis=satifried.

  5. Focusing on all sentient beings, practice the four boundless qualities: love, which is the wish that they be happy; compassion, the wish that they be free from suffering; sympathetic joy, which is to feel happy when they are happy; and impartiality, which is to treat them impartially as equals, without attachment or aversion.

    ~ Kangyur Rinpoche
