Indian Trained Buddhist Monks Banned From Teaching Buddhism in China

Why are Indian Educated Buddhist Monks banned from teaching Buddhism in China? According to a Chinese official, Buddhist Monks who are wrongly educated in India are banned from teaching Buddhism in many parts of China including the Litang county in the Sichuan province.

With Anti Islam Drive, Muslims in China Under Severe Threat and Persecution

The country promotes nationalistic education for those educated and awarded Gexe Lharampa – the highest academic degree in Tibetan Buddhist studies in India, a Chinese official from ethnic and religious affairs bureau told the Global Times.

Those Monks who acted inappropriately at the patriotic classes or exhibited “any signs of separatist intent” are strictly monitored and eventually forbidden from teaching Buddhism, stated the Chinese official.

China has its own standards to award Gexe Lharampa, and all the monks have to clear Chinese Buddhist tests. Those monks who are conferred with a degree outside China, are not recognized by Beijing and are thus not eligible to teach Buddhism in China.

Mellowed China Seeking Trilateral Partnership with India and Japan?

Some 105 Buddhists Monks in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) have been conferred the Chinese Buddhist version of the degree since 2004, according to the Xinhua News Agency.

As many Buddhists Monks received education in India from the teachings of 14th Dalai Lama – whom Beijing considers as a separatist – it is essential to tighten monitoring to avoid Indian trained Buddhists Monks lay seeds of separatism, added the Chinese officials.

Is Indian Military Preparing for a War with China?

This move is a regular practice every year, said the official, in response to the county’s critical separatist condition. Litang county is home to prominent Buddhists including the Seventh and Tenth Dalai Lama.
