Robert Thurman Meets Kelsang Pema
Robert Thurman met Kelsang Pema briefly while the Western Shugden Society was protesting outside the Dalai Lama’s teachings at Lehigh University in Bethleham, Pennsylvania. When she first approached him he said “You should be ashamed of yourself!” Pema said that she had heard the he had been saying that the Western Shugden Society was sponsored by the Chinese. Robert Thurman replied “Of course your funded by the Chinese.” Pema asked what proof he had to base his statements on. He said “You use the same terminology as the Chinese like ‘fuedalism’ and ‘theocracy’.” Can you believe that this is the kind of information that Robert Thurman bases his statements on? Is he really a bestselling author?
