True Buddhists can't be proud of Dalai's record

An ancient Chinese saying has it that few people live to their 70s (in those times). If I remember correctly, the Dalai Lama is 73 this year, which means he is an old man now.

For many years the Tibetans have treated this Dalai Lama, who has been away from Tibet physically and spiritually for decades, as a deity like their forefathers did all previous Dalai Lamas throughout history. However, this deity has lost his halo in people's minds, especially after they realized he does not possess any divine spirit or a heart of Bodhisattva, and nor has he done anything good for Tibet and Tibetans.

The Dalai Lama officially succeeded to the religious title and position in 1939 after the Kuomintang government back then approved his selection. According to Buddhist tradition, he should have followed Buddha's teachings to seek the ultimate enlightenment by helping people understand and accept Buddhism and by doing whatever good he could for all Tibetans. Instead, he acted as a double-dealing opportunist.
