Tibetan Buddhism is often called *Lamaism*. To avoid confusing Tibetan Buddhism with other forms of Buddhism, Lamaism is a term that will be used here.The history of Lamaism among the Mongols is long and sometimes violent. It is important to know this history so people can better understand the root of some sentiments between Shamanism and Lamaism. It is also important to remember this history so the atrocities do not repeat themselves.
Since the time of Chinggis Khaan, only people who were of his royal lineage were allowed to rule Mongolia. This frustrated many would-be rulers who were not of this line. Altan khan was the most destructive of these usurpers. He perceived that through the Buddhist faith he could gain legitimacy by claiming to be a reincarnation of Khublai Khaan.

Tibetan voodoo believes each life has its source called La. La doesn’t have to be located within the body, but can be situated anywhere - on a hill, in a lake or within a beast. One person may have more than one La. Moreover, a family, a tribe or a nation also has its collective La. If you want to destroy your opponents, according to Tibetan Lamaism, the easiest way to achieve the goal is to find out through divination where this person’s La locates and then destroy it.

The 5th Dalai Lama is known to be completely obsessed with Black Magic, and exploited some allegedly extremely powerful voodoos to eliminate his political rivals.

One of such super measures to efficiently kill people in a large scale and is Eight Teeth Wheel, which is said can slay hundreds of thousands of people in the blink of an eye.[1]

Another powerful killing machine handed down by the 5th Dalai is so-called “Devil’s Grinding Mill” made of two round stones. It is said that the 5th Dalai Lama held voodoo rituals for the purpose of killing periodically and on every special occasions, and he was convinced that his triumphant over his political rivals had to be attributed mainly to, not the force of the Mongols, but the power of his voodoo. According to Kagyupa document, the lama in question once released five vicious demons from hell to seduce Mongols into a Tibetan trap to meet their doomed fate. [2]

The 14th Dalai has acknowledged that he draws inspiration mainly from 5th Dalai, so how good is this current lama at using the black magic? This is a closely guarded secret in the Tibetan government-in-exile, but still there are traces all over that can help us to gain some insight into his murky world. In Dalai’s autobiography there is a reference on how his black magic caused the death of China’s late leader Mao Zedong. In the book he gives a detailed description of a three-day voodoo ritual taken place with Kalachakra Tantra - a time machine in Lamaism. Following the instructions by the 5th Dalai, the 14th Dalai held a weeks-long prayer session in solitary prior to the ritual. On September 8, 1976, a process to manipulate the “time” began. When the ritual entered the second day, September 9, Mao died. The Dalai described how in the morning of the third day, he found the heaven was in tears, then in the afternoon, he witnessed a most beautiful rainbow in the sky that he ever seen in his life. [3]

Whether it is a true story or a fiction, in the circle of the Tibetan Lamaist followers, the cause of Mao’s death is commonly credited to Dalai’s black magic. And not just Mao, even the death of another Chinese supreme leader Deng Xiaoping is attributed to the power of voodoo, this time it was executed by Dalai’s brother Gyalo Thondup. Deng died on February 12, 1997. Just days before his death he met with the master of the black magic, thus a link between the meeting and the death is conveniently established according to the Lamaist tradition. [4]

Reportedly the 14th Dalai Lama also used this “Devil’s Grinding Mill” in his battle against an army. He drew the La of the enemy troops into mustard seeds, when he learned through omens that he successfully did so, he placed the seeds in the Devil’s Mill and ordered the lamas to grind them into powder. Allegedly the force of destruction was so potent that the lamas who grinded the mill all died soon after the ritual. The mill is still kept in a Yellow Hat Lamaist Monastery KardoGompa outside Lhasa.
