Dharamshala — "Bliss & Wisdom's main problem is that the Chinese Communist Party has infiltrated Bliss and Wisdom, using the Bliss and Wisdom leadership to distort Buddhism in favor of Chinese interests. They have diverted overseas Chinese disciples of His Holiness the Dalai Lama into the arms of the Chinese-sanctioned Panchen Lama lineage," asserts Ven Fan Yin, First abbot of Bliss and Wisdom sangha.
New Delhi — "As far as the historical status is concerned, Tibet was an independent country. Any country including India or whoever says Tibet was historically a part of China is wrong, and we cannot accept that," Tibetan President said during a press conference in New Delhi, the capital of India on Thursday.
Dharamshala — "This claim is completely unsubstantiated. Bliss and Wisdom has never had any ties to any political party in any country. We have never and will never undermine any religious figure. In addition, the other party has extensively exaggerated and made an issue of Bliss and Wisdom's relationships with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism," asserts Ven Shi Ru-wei, Public relations for the Bliss and Wisdom.
