Mainstream media avoiding reports that Dalai Lama is terminally ill?

By Indy Hack
I’ve spent the past few years covering human rights issues within segments of the Tibetan community. At times when people were demonstrating outside the Dalai Lama’s public appearances, it looked as if the mainstream media was starting to shift a little bit, sensing his potential fall from grace, but certain key figures would run to his aid and back him up.
According to sources from within the Tibetan exile leadership the Dalai Lama has prostate cancer!

The Dalai Lama, 82, has a bedrock of support within some of the older elements of celebrity society and they, in turn, have contacts and influence within organisations such as the Associated Press. Although there isn’t a systemic or organisational support of him there are key proponents that help him. This makes the Dalai Lama a very hard target to criticize.An aspect I’ve found quite interesting is his approach to his health problems. I’ve known for some time that the Dalai Lama has been undergoing treatment for prostate cancer and it’s progressed to further parts of his body. Now he’s in advanced stage 4 and the prognosis is bleak. He’s not expected to survive beyond the end of the year.

 The Dalai Lama on March 18, 2018

Despite this, he maintains he is in good health, or has no specific health problems – those are his own statements and the public statements of his office. Yet at the same time he’s cancelling overseas travel and even canceling some public appearances in India.

When you see footage of him rather than the stage-managed photos of specific events, it’s also very obvious how limited his movement is. Just watch the way he walks or the way he tries to bend over. He’s got no back strength at all because the tumors are progressing throughout his lower spine.

If you contrast the way he appears and the spate of cancelled public appearances with the statements that he’s in good health it’s obvious that he’s lying. More obvious than at any other time. This goes to the very heart of why he can’t be criticized – he’s lying, the main media outlets know he’s lying, but no one has the courage to publish the fact that he’s dying.

The Dalai Lama’s gov’t knows that he is dying which is why they’re celebrating 60 years of exile 1 year too soon. Do they know that he won’t be alive to celebrate it in 2019?

As soon as one of them starts, the rest will join in, but that will probably only be in his final week. They’ll ignore the fact that he’s been giving them a load of BS and then just run weeks and weeks of the stock footage of all his wonderful humanitarian deeds. It’s not that the main outlets are protecting him, it’s simply that they’re too risk averse. That’s how he gets away with it, the same way all powerful media figures get away with abusing their position.


The Phayul report today stated that the Dalai Lama has been declared fit by his physician:

According to the story, the Dalai Lama was flown to Delhi for an intensive physical check up because he was suffering from a minor throat irritation and common cold. Can you recall the last time, or any time for that matter, that you heard of someone being flown across country for a sore throat and cold?
If you watch him on 18th March trying to place medals over students heads at the Jammu University in India, it is obvious that he has serious physical problems
The surprising thing isn’t that the Dalai Lama is dying of cancer, it’s that the mainstream outlets aren’t reporting it at all.

  • This is the biggest joke of the year. This person surely has to be crazy to write such a fake article about someone as great as H.H Dalai Lama, who is a living Buddha. H.H Dalai Lama spent his entire life spreading messages of love and compassion for the whole world without caring for his own life, for he knows that this life’s pleasures are temporary and transitory, we all are here in this world just to give a test. Hence he is smart enough to invest his time towards the real everlasting future for himself and for all sentient beings. He couldn’t care less about such petty comments. He would laugh it off and instead will say” Have pity on this guy, he must be sick in his mind”. Ha Ha Ha !

    So a negative person like this can keeping sending negative messages and gain temporary pleasure. But dude your future looks r…e…a…l bleak ………. in hot hell.

  • Just as the the name suggests – just a hack. A tool for opponents to exploit for personal gains. Nothing investigative or journalistic here.


  • Indy Hack, you seem to get enjoyment out of speculating about the Dalai Lama’s future death. I feel sorry for you, as you are clearly sick in the head. Normal people don’t do things like this. May you find some peace one day.

  • Whatever you’re trying to achieve here is really sad… i have a lot of compassion for you because you’re clearly in the dark as to wtf you’re doing and how that will impact your future lives. I do wish all the best luck for you for purifying your mind.

  • This person’s claim to be an “Independent UK journalist” is an outright lie. He has gone to extreme lengths to protect his real identity, because it is widely believed that he is none other than a leading member of an organisation called “The New Kadampa Tradition” (NKT) which is a cultish, so-called “Buddhist” group, with a long history of allegations against it of exploiting, abusing and threatening its members and former members. The NKT has been at the forefront of a decades-long campaign to vilify and demonise the Dalai Lama because of some absurd spiritual dispute over the legitimacy of a practice the NKT favours, involving the worship of an arcane, medieval Tibetan deity called Dolgyal Shugden. I know – it’s barking mad, especially when the Buddha himself never ever advocated worshipping anyone or anything anyway!

    For an insight into the viciousness of this person calling himself “Indyhack” please see the link below which reveals how he attempts to use tactics like blackmail, threats and intimidation to coerce people into doing as he wishes and to punish them for criticising his beloved NKT. As for his allegations that Tenzin Peljor is a “spy” working for the CTA – well it hardly even merits a response. It beats me how anyone could warrant being called a “spy” for the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) when they are openly supportive of the Dalai Lama, have been critical of the CTA and have no role at all within the NKT or its subsidiary organisations, on which he is allegedly spying! In what way can he be a “spy”?! It’s just nonsense. The only thing Indyhack’s allegations prove about Tenzin or the Dalai Lama is the deceptive lengths to which the NKT will go to twist facts, attack and slander people who criticise the NKT and to further their own nonsensical agenda of spreading the worship of a Tibetan medieval deity. Utterly bonkers.

  • Indy Hack! You really, really, really don’t know what you are talking about when you say these untruthful things about HH the Dalai Lama. Why don’t you try coming to India … just once … and meet HH face to face. It might be life changing!
    HH has problems with his knees. If you don’t frequent him you will never know the truth!
    Just as all the other lies you spread around about his “banning” your beloved Dorji Shugden. He has never BANNED it. He is in no position to BAN.
    Have you EVER been to India or do you just do this sitting at your computer???

  • Oh Indy, still wishing harm on His Holiness, haha. How eaten up with spite you are! Keeps you busy when you aren’t writing your dumb blackmail letters, I suppose.

  • Hello Tenzin Peljor, aka Michael Jaeckel, aka Mick, aka “Indy Luck”.

    For readers unfamiliar with your Stasi background, your ordination by the Dalai Lama, and your work to promote the Central Tibetan Administration they can look here:

    No ‘alternative facts’ here Tenzin, that’s more your style from your East German intelligence background.

  • Why do the main stream media avoid to tell “that Dalai Lama is terminally ill”? Because it is an “alternative fact” or just fake news as so much Indy Hack has reported. A “journalist” who hides behind a pseudonym, spreads rumours and twists the facts, how seriously can you take such a guy?

    Maybe the Dalai Lama survives Indy Hack, lets see 😉
