Regarding Brahma Chellaney’s Feb. 6 article, “ Lama drama and intrigue“: The facts of the matter (in which Indian police recently seized large sums of Chinese currency from the Indian monastery of the Karmapa Lama) is that most of the money, about 70 percent, was in U.S. dollars. Yet, no one sees fit to call the Karmapa Lama a U.S. spy on the lam.

Since the largest number of Buddhists are in China, and the largest number of Tibetan Buddhists are in Tibet, which is in China, does it surprise anybody that there are yuan donations?
