This is a quote from their website:

We want to help all living beings to be liberated from sufferings. Just like the sun and moon, throughout day and night, sweep away darkness and defilements and brighten up the whole world. Also like a huge tree blocking away our sufferings of body and mind and allowing us to become peaceful and enter nirvana.

I'm not a member of their tradition, but I don't think anyone would have a problem with this. If anyone says that their practice is controversial, it's just politics.

From the point of view of the exhibition, they simply have the freedom to exhibit whatever they want, surely?
In joining Dharma Wheel you agree to abide by the ToS here.

I have been as flexible as I can with this topic. The ToS here are based on the advice of HHDL with respect to organisations which practice Shugden. Your view on HHDL's judgement is not relevant.

Since it seems impossible to persuade some members to refrain, rather than delete or edit posts, I am locking this topic and will discuss with other staff how we may best move forwards.
