[1] This link is broken. From the content only the following PDF copy is available at the moment: A Brief Opposition to Shugden – Department of Religion & Culture of the Central Tibetan Administration

[2] Though they have been asked by certain Lamas to take off their images from that site because they don’t practice Shugden any more, the website owners’ response was that this doesn’t matter to them because who once practiced Shugden would still be a Dorje Shugden practitioner.

When this blog refers to “Sera Expulsion Letter” it refers to this letter To the Tibetan Buddhists around the World…. The “Sera Expulsion Letter” has no date.
