A PhD. western Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ and teacher skirted a law suit and possibly a jail sentence when in his New York sangha he decided to sleep with a ten-year old daughter of another sangha member . His defense was that the sangha mother colluded. The case was settled out of court for half a million and it never made the news.
This western Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ continued to teach and coördinate a Shambhala center for many years after his sexual abuse was quickly covered up in typical western, Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ fashion.
Instead of his being shunned by his fellow western Lamaists, it was denied that this was ‘abuse’ at all and he continued to be a respected member of the community. Being the scholarly type, his tantric practitioner colleagues probably just concluded he was ‘experimenting’ with the exhortation in their higher Hindu-based Tibetan Tantras that an outcast girl of ten or eleven years old makes the best sexual consort.
Most western Buddhists would have no doubt that the above behavior was clearly sexual abuse, but not western ‘Tibetan Buddhists.’ Any awareness of this being sexual abuse and very wrong would be suppressed, hardly reaching consciousness, the circumstances surrounding the sexual abuse would be idealized as ‘crazy wisdom’ in the tantric world where the belief in ‘no self’ , ‘all is an illusion’ and ‘emptiness of phenomenon’ becomes a formula for a dangerous amoralism, sweeping into western culture as this vajrayana tantric world view is now a socio-political movement, thanks to the Dalai Lama who is infiltrating by stealth into many aspects of mainstream western culture with most people having no knowledge that this is happening or awareness of the close connections with a corporate world plutocracy of billionaires, monarchies and Hindu nationalists like the conservative, reactionary nationalists in India, the RSS, a militant, anti-Muslim group.
This belief that ‘all is an illusion’ , the major Hindu and Tibetan Lama meme, is also extremely dangerous when applied to the relative phenomenal world around one, leading inevitably to a moral and ethical confusion, and a passive nihilism that eventually becomes indifference to suffering . That is why in India it is taught that to extend help , as westerners understand compassion, would be ‘interfering in a person’s karma’. Natural and spontaneous compassion is replaced with only the ‘rhetoric’ of compassion left. Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ talk a lot about compassion but you would be hard pressed to see anything charitable they do for others, other than to fund raise to spread their Hindu Tantra cult religion.
Within the inner circles of these Tibetophiled western sanghas of Lamaism, where worshipping the Lamas is the main ‘spiritual’ practice, one’s own western cultural values and inner compass of what is right and wrong by western standards is rejected as a Lama- induced , group mind is substituted, with everyone on the same page and speaking the same jargon with new words and a new language.. There is no room for debate and no criticism of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ or the Lamas is allowed , ever.
Confused and divided about ethics , free will, free speech, rejecting their own western canon by increments, these western Tibetan ‘Buddhists, while believing they are becoming more awake, are actually becoming more compartmentalized and infantilized, rejecting their own cultural values and denying the ‘shadow’ side of this ‘perfect paradigm’ of Shangri-La and the Lamas.
To be a Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ ‘ you have to ‘believe’in the devil’ as Stephen Batchelor, former Gelugpa monk and translator for the Dalai Lama, directly put it , before he apparently decided to go along with Lamaism once again, joining up with the ‘Dalai Lama ‘Mind and Life Secular and Scientific Show’ headed to Chiemsee, Germany this August, 2014.
Mr. Batchelor also said recently that if there was ever a religion that would support sexual abuse of women it would be Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ but apparently being part of the ‘Worlds Top Experts in their Fields’ at this faux scientific symposium of the Mind and Life Institute was too tempting for Mr. Batchelor and his wife Martine. Does he know or not know that this is another ‘front’ to spread Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ using his scientific spirituality mask by the Dalai Lama?
The Batchelors were featured in the 2011 Canadian documentary exposing Lama Sogyal of Lakar and his egregious sexual exploitations of women at his Rigpa centers entitled ‘In the Name of Enlightenment”.
One wonders if Mr. Batchelor will be discussing the ‘Devil and Sexual Abuses in Lamaism’ as part of the panel discussions at this secular and scientific event?
Hope springs eternal.
Stephen was helpful, nevertheless in pointing out that Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ was not what the Buddha taught, and one had to believe in the devil in order to be a Tibetan ‘Buddhist. ‘ It’s why he entitled his book ‘Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist’. He couldn’t tolerate the double think and double speak anymore from what was clearly a theistic religion.
It is really very hard to leave the ‘Lama net of enthrallment’ , all your friends are still there, all the reference points of a lifetime keep you connected. It is very hard to leave unless you separate from all past connections, true of all cults, if you wish to free your mind completely from the Lamas.
Lama Tsoknyi ‘the precious’ will also be a guest speaker at this ‘scientific and secular’ symposium in Germany this summer. Lama Tsoknyi , promoted by his western devotees, as a ‘westernized Lama’ would have a lot to say about ‘devils’ and ‘hell realms’ since he puts his students on serious solitary retreat, reading about Tibetan hells, and scaring them to death if they so much as ever again have even a negative thought about their Lamas . Since Tsoknyi is the number one protector of his pal Sogyal, the alleged sexual and physical abuser of hundreds of women in the west, this self-proclaimed Tibetan Lama ‘feminist’ knows a lot about the sexual abuses within Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ particular as perpetrated by his mentor, the Precious One from Lakar. Tsoknyi rinpoche has covered for and taught beside Sogyal for over two decades , while he and his devotees promote Tsoknyi as a ‘feminist’ Lama only concerned about the plight of nuns in Tibet. A clever cover for his continued cover-up and enabling of sexual abuse within Tibetan Lamaism. Create a ‘feminist facade’ that is the opposite of what is really taking place, set up a fund-raiser to funnel in lots of money for improving the plight of Tibetan nuns, even though much of that money the first year of fund-raising for the nuns went into funding his brother Mingyur’ Rinpoche’s Lama empire in the west, with now dozens of Lama centers of his own. That was the last year there was any accountability , since Tsoknyi, like so many other Lamas, are now ‘churches’ with tax free status and absolutely no financial accountability to anyone, not even the I.R.S.
In order to facilitate the Lama world of seamless mind control, doublespeak and groupthink in Tibetan ‘Buddhism, ‘ people who are individualists, who ask too many questions, or speak out directly against corruption inside their ‘sanghas,’ are literally and viciously first attacked by their fellow ‘compassionate’ sangha members and, if they don’t conform again to the groupthink and group speak, they are soon shunned and demonized , considered heretics to the fundamentalist view of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ that allows no criticism of itself, its leaders, and the Lamas.
Whistle-blowers inside these repressive sanghas are dismissed as simply neurotic , angry people and since any outrage or anger is completely rejected, no matter how appropriate, and fellow sangha members serve to control the rigid boundaries of what can be expressed- they become the Lamas ‘gatekeepers’ . Women who have been sexually abused and ‘whistle blow’ are dismissed as neurotic whiners, and ‘blaming the victim’ is the major strategy that these ‘compassionate’ modern western ‘Buddhists’ use to effectively silence any protest. Since the Lamas can never be wrong it has to be the ‘whistleblower’ that is condemned.
There is absolutely no open freedom of speech and thought in this radically anti-democratic world fast making theses western ‘Buddhists’ mental slaves and servants of the Lamas, without any awareness that this has occurred.
Instead they believe, as they are repeatedly told by their ‘precious ones on thrones’, including the Dalai Lama -who always tells westerners what they want to hear- that they are the karmically advanced beings of the world, with unimaginably great good fortune to have even encountered these ninth century despots, the Lamas, and their tantric occult ‘religion’. Some of the more well-known and influential western devotees are elevated to ‘luminaries’ on the ‘cutting edge’ of a new western-eastern paradigm’ such as Robert Thurman for the Dalai Lama who is one among many featured luminaries of the Shift movement, created by former Esalen Institute of Thought Control founder, Steven Dinan.
Now that all the new age ‘healers and channelers’ , life coaches and apparently many of our neoliberal politicians, along with corporately controlled news, have joined the Dalai Lama and his Lama ‘spiritual will to heal the world” and his ‘enlightened view’ and ‘ecumenicalism’ to spread his new ‘secular spirituality’ the sine qua non of an oxymoron and classic double speak, this New Age salesmanship, a ‘spiritual alliance’ of like-thinking ‘luminaries, are facilitating, they believe, an actual ‘shift in evolutionary consciousness’ for man’s greater good and for peace in the world. The underlying goal of the Tibetan Lamas in this, however, is a merging slowly into ‘communitarianism’ replacing western democracy with the religious ‘memes’ of the Godmen to facilitate this. A Hindu Oneness view of Unity, modeled on India, land of abject poverty, a caste system that calls itself a “democracy’ .
Just as in Old Tibet and the Dalai Lamas wanting to control all the other Buddhist sects, now his goal is far more ambitious, create an ‘Adi Buddha world’ a hegemony of Lamaism globally. . Robert Thurman, the Dalai Lama’s main representative ‘scholar’ and thought- controlled, western Lamaist and Luminary, is explicit about his belief that a Buddhocracy , Lama style, would be the best form of world government, i.e. an ‘enlightened theocracy’ headed up by the Lamas. Clearly Robert is one of those intellectual academics who doesn’t believe in history, particularly Tibetan History.
These cutting edge ‘paradigm shifters’ of western ‘buddhism’ , however, are helping to ‘shut down’ and narrow consciousness into atavistic paradigms more in tune with a medieval, illiterate peasantry that can be easily manipulated by power politics in no small part thanks to these ‘wisdom change agents’ who are actually unwittingly, and some not so unwittingly , supporting and promoting a cult of sexual abuse and a repressive theocracy that kept its own people in misery, poverty , slavery and serfdom in Old Tibet , exploited in every way by these Lamas for centuries, with no possibility of escape.
The Lamas have always had slaves and servants surrounding them, they cannot imagine a world without them.
A brief familiarization with Tibet under the Lamas, will give clearer picture .
In order to fully implement the Dalai Lama’s ‘spiritual will,’ as he now calls his propaganda extravaganza and ‘nonpolitical’ movement , the Mind and Life Institute was created for the ‘scientific and academic types’ . It’s sister affiliate, the Shift Movement , has been made a part of this ‘evolutionary ‘conscious raising’ for our planet and is for the equally naïve, brought to us by New Age ‘healers’ life coaches, and former CEO’s and western new age teachers, whose designated Luminaries List is no longer as visible as it once was, since you can’t view the total ‘Luminary ‘ webpage on Steven Dinan’s Shift link anymore without registering to be a Shift member . Not so long ago they were all beamingly proud to be ‘on the list’ with their bios and smiling pictures and canned ‘enlightened joy’. Nevertheless, just exploring the links, one soon quickly sees how considerable this network of influence has become.
The Dalai Lama and Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ is now spearheading the Shift movement, although this is being kept from the public eye . You can see the close connections with the Shift luminaries and the Dalai Lama in the film trailers” for ‘Dalai Lama the Renaissance” narrated by Hollywood’s Harrison Ford, however .
The Dalai Lama is also funding another massive propaganda movement for himself and Tibetan Buddhism, with the launch of his “peace , love and conformity” program for 2014-2015, declared the year of the Dalai Lama by the Tibetan Government in Exile, (Tibetans have a different calendar) created for the west , and a ‘Living History Experience’, a completely fabricated fairy tale about the Dalai Lamas, and their Shangri-Lai instead of the ‘living history experience’ of hell on earth for the ordinary Tibetan people under the tyranny of the Dalai Lamas. . Hollywood is the major propaganda tool for the ‘religion’ of the Lamas that Himmler and the National Socialists so admired . When Scorsese learned, at the end of Seven Years in Tibet, that his main character , Heinrich Harrar, the tutor to the Dalai Lama, had died an unrepentant Nazi , Scorcese, to save his film, makes up a fairy tale ending thus sealing off the Tibetan Lama National Socialist links from the public’s knowledge.
The Lamas, and their western ‘luminaries’ are now a multimedia- created movement , supported by wealthy plutocrats behind the scenes, billionaires like George Soros ,and his corporate news outlets like the Huffington Post. George and the Dalai are both members of the Club of Budapest, a spin off of the Club of Rome, started by David Rockefeller and other wealthy billionaire, neo Malthusians.
Being a billionaire and having success in the financial world makes you smart but not necessarily intelligent. That is the mistake ordinary people always make in a ‘capitalist world’ when the wealthy elite are elevated into all-seeing Gods . This is why billionaires and their fellow billionaires, like the Dalai Lama always hang out together. Birds of a feather…..
But western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ know none of this, they don’t want to know, and wouldn’t be able to comprehend it , ‘take it in’ since they are programmed to only have ‘positive’ thoughts about the Lamas and their Lamaism.
Even the ‘scholars’ and so- called cutting edge western researchers who have been seduced by the Dalai Lama’s charm, apparently don’t read history anymore, since ‘history’ the Lamas have told them and they now believe, is just a temporary perception, an ‘illusion’ as everything is an ‘illusion’. Nothing that ‘arises’ in the phenomenal world is anymore important than anything else that arises. Since there is nothing to learn from history, why bother to read Tibetan history or look at the photos and film of Tibet under these tyrants the Dalai Lama? “It’s all an illusion, it doesn’t matter”, they say, while programmed to knee-jerk the ‘Chinese Communist’ meme to prevent further investigation.
Not knowing that they are now part of the Dalai Lama, geo-political scheme to help spread his ninth century , androcentric priesthood worldwide, these scholars and ‘cutting edge academics’ , would never even consider reading the real history of Tibet or the archived film footage and photographic images of Lhasa under the Dalai Lamas, its despotic cruelty , a religious tyranny they could see with their own eyes, if they dared to look, if they could look. These ‘scholars’ have literally turned away , back -facing and programmed to reject anything negative about the Lamas, covering their eyes and ears in order to remain in a state of peaceful ‘not knowing ‘, and to dwell in the Hindu Tantra Net ( ‘Tantra’ means net) of ONE MIND which is not Buddhism.
“Knowing’ ,and the ability to discern ethical from unethical behavior and what to accept or what to reject, i.e. ‘discernment,’ is being massively obliterated by many streams that come out of this Hindu Tantric stream ‘Emotions and feelings’ are elevated as more important and critical thinking skills and the ability to discern right from wrong are replaced with knee-jerk emotional reactions and popularized memes. Cognitive skills and judgments , i.e. the ‘discerning mind’ is being rejected for a passive “peace , love, non-thinking’ promise of happiness if you just ‘let go’ and don’t ‘judge’ , don’t think’ ‘don’t get angry, not ever, not even righteous anger. What a perfect ‘religion’ for a Totalistic world shift.
A cloud of ‘unknowing’ is sweeping across the west and being deeply implanted into western culture, by these Hindu Gurus and their memes, and no one is even aware. It is like falling asleep slowly , in a poppy field .
Ignorance and Wonder is the state to which these spiritual ‘luminaries’ are attached and where they tell us it is best to go. ‘Not knowing’ is now the ideal state.
Ignorance is the Bliss they seek.
But ignoring evidence, i.e. a fuller picture and important information from the phenomenal world , is not ‘scientific’ nor secular. It is the exact opposite. .
How do the Lamas get seemingly sane westerners to give up their own culture and follow the Lamas? Tibetan Lamaism is the motherlode of this ‘Guru is Perfect’ meme
Since the main teaching of all of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ is Lamaism, i.e. Lama worship- this is Tibetan ‘Buddhism’s’ main teaching, and what it all boils down to in the end: worship of the Lamas who are seen in these sanghas as superhuman beings, incarnate realized beings and as perfect no matter what egregious behaviors these Lamas demonstrate right before their western devotees eyes.
Of course, this can’t but help create an extremely disturbing and dysfunctional cult of denial which exists in all these sanghas no matter what Lama or Tibetan sect of Lamaism they are following.
Guru Yoga , the practice of worshipping these Lamas as divine and ‘enlightened beings’ never having a negative thought about them, no matter what you ‘think’ you perceive, is the main teaching tenet of the Hindu-based Tantric Vajrayana of Tibetan Lamaism. It creates a group delusional field that is relies on enthrallment and extreme obedience to these Lamas as the source of all blessings, inspiration and guidance for one’s spiritual path,. It also creates a general moral relativism among an increasingly passive and profoundly conforming population within these western sanghas, whose members soon come to disregard their own western cultural values and codes of conduct and laws of their own culture and community and just parrot the words “compassion’, ‘peace’ and ‘heart’ .
They also only read and study the Lama spoon-fed fairy tales and hagiographic biographies of dead Lamas of the past , they celebrate Tibetan holidays, which are all about the Lamas, elebrating dead lamas, their birthdays, their parinirvanas’ everything becomes about the Guru, everything, while any healthy western skepticism or judgement that this might not be such a good view to have for a healthy society, is soon closed off inside the world of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and is replaced with a curious ‘infantilism’ as a member in your new perfect ‘family’.
If they did use their western critical reasoning again, westerners would discover the cruel and despotic history of Tibet under the Lamas , a history that the Lamas discourage them from reading, nor do they read about the scandals about the , torn from their families and ‘offered’ up to the Lamas for their mass monasticism. Even if they did read it? They wouldn’t be concerned about this at all ‘just an illusion’ they say. It must be ‘communist propaganda’, or Christian propaganda, western Tibetan Buddhist are particularly anti-Christian when just among themselves showing how much influence they are having in society to undermine traditional religions and elevate their own beliefs.
This sexual abuse of the little boy monks that almost all western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ ignore, has gone on for centuries, and is both institutionalized and accepted within Tibetan Lamaseries to this day, and where in the Gelugpa monasteries of the Dalai Lamas particularly, becoming a lover of an older Lama. a few rungs up the ladder, was the only way a lower caste neophyte lama could gain protection and a few more perks in the rigid, androgynous, Tibetan ‘Buddhist’world of the Potala Palace.
Sexual exploitation of women by the Lamas for their ‘bliss couple practices’ was also and still is ubiquitous and institutionalized within Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and is not only tolerated but actively encouraged in this Hindu vajrayana cult of tantric practices that these Lamas engage in.
Young women, throughout the centuries in Tibet and now all over the world, are told it will be a ‘great blessing’ to be a Lama’s sexual consort. Some of these Lamas have had hundreds of temporary liasons with their devotees , who are told to keep their special relationship with the Lamas a ‘secret’. Book deals in the Lamas’ publishing houses, and special status in the group as a Lama ‘dakini’ are just some of the strong inducements and incentives to keep a ‘modern’ western woman quiet .
Tibetan ‘Buddhism’, although it dons the cloak of Mahayana Buddhist concepts over its fundamental Hindu Vajrayana Tantric belief system, is not Buddhism, it is a Hindu Tantric ‘cult religion’ brought to the early Buddhism of Tibet and overlaid on Bon spirit worship. It is the worship of these Lamas as gurus on thrones whose every wish and indulgence is to be obeyed if ‘enlightenment’ is to be reached by a devotee, this is the fundamental and essential belief of all Tibetan Buddhists, whether they are well-educated professors from Stanford or illiterate nomads from Kham unceasingly twirling prayer wheels and reciting mantras to ward off the demons they have been taught to fear at every turn in the road.
This central teaching of Tibetan ‘Buddhism,’ this ‘guru worship’ is why someone like Sogyal rinpoche, with his many ‘Rigpa’ centers , despite having allegedly sexually exploited and physically beaten hundreds of western females, is still honored and feted despite now a second, multimillion dollar lawsuit for alleged sexual and physical abuse perpetrated upon a western student. Every celebrity Lama has circled the wagons around Sogyal to protect him, including the Dalai Lama.
Rather than being called out as a miscreant , as the Dalai Lama has deceptively told western Tibetan Buddhists to do, if they know about Lama abuses, the Dalai Lama is engaging in double speak , particularly for the western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ since he knows full well that the warning in Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ to “never see, think or say” anything negative about the Lamas will override this rhetoric for the western audiences.
Nothing will ever be done ‘inside’ these western Tibetan Buddhist sanghas, because the western devotees are not allowed to even have a negative thought about their perfect Lamas, the precious ones. If you are taught to never see, hear or even think anything negative about your Lama, how will the rampant sexual misuse of women inside these sanghas ever be stopped?
Sogyal’s multimillion dollar Rigpa empire is openly celebrated by the Dalai Lama and all the other sects who are now under the Dalai Lama’s hegemony, another doublespeak example, what are these devotees to do , when they see the Dalai Lama himself in 2008, along with the neoliberal plutocracy in France ‘honoring’ the number one alleged sexual exploiter and his opening of his center Lerab Ling.
Sogyal’s sexual conquests are not the only thing celebrated by all the Tibetan Lamas as Sogyal the precious is protected by powerful social political forces in the U.S. , France , Ireland and elsewhere in the west-its the amount of money he brings in to spread more Lamaism around the world that gives Lama Sogyal of Lakar his cover and protection within Tibetan ‘Buddhism.’
Sogyal has also boldly sat on panels at the Mind and Life Institute of the Dalai Lama and promotes the Dalai’s World Buddhocracy vehicle through Sogyal’s Rigpa site and at Lerab Ling France, where he discusses their ‘close connections’ and mutual goals and the ‘secular spirituality’ con of this new world wide movement to promote feudalism and ignorance with the rest of the cults on the U.N. Economic and Security Council with ‘advisory status’ .
Do these western ‘great thinkers of our times’ , these scientists and researchers bother to research who and what is behind this Mind and Life Institute of the Dalai Lama, that is fooling the intellectuals in a way not seen since the Vichy intellectuals in France?
Not at all.
Perhaps that intellectual lineage has been revitalized, since the connections between Tibetan Lamaism and the National Socialists are well documented and becoming slowly more exposed, despite the plutocracy and Hollywood cover-ups and the recent desperate attempt of the Lamas to put out ‘damage control’ regarding these connections.
As for Sogyal Lakar the little precious, his Lakar family is a lineage of ‘benefactors’ of Lamaism over the centuries. Not high lamas themselves the Lakars were part of the wealthy landholders and administrators , the 5% that weren’t slaves and serfs in Tibet kept in a state of semi-starvation and poverty. The Lakars financially supported Lamaism over the centuries. So anything Sogyal wants, he gets in the world of the Lamas . His flagrant and continuous sexual exploitation of young women who come to him for ‘spiritual advice’ continues, unabated.
In the Spring of 2013, Sogyal gave a ‘meditation retreat’ at Connecticut College, a prestigious female college in Connecticut, established to ‘empower women,’ to over a hundred young , naïve female undergraduates who probably do a little yoga and have decided to learn to ‘meditate’.
The U.S. news gave little coverage to Sogyal’s second multimillion dollar law suit in 2011, thanks to a corporately controlled media that protects the Tibetan Lamas, and much less than it did in 1994 when the first case against Sogyal, the precious, was settled for an ‘undisclosed amount’ also rumored to be in the millions. This news, so important to warn innocent young women, is censored in the U.S. even at the expense of these young, naïve female college students at Connecticut College.
This is the hidden and corollary dangers of the corporatized university and corporatized news, as a corporate ‘personhood’ without any ethics and certainly no moral compass , only concerned about profit and keeping the masses ‘dumbed down,’ protects and covers up, along with all the western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ and their Lamas, for a predator like Sogyal.
Even the American Psychological Association is enabling this sexually abusive cult of the Lamas by endorsing it and allowing it to spread and flourish through its many disguises but the motherlode of disguises of the Dalai Lama is his Mind and Life Institute started by himself, a wealthy businessman and a fanatic western Lama devotee . The Mind and Life Institute is a Trojan horse to implement Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ into every aspect of western culture by stealth until democracy is overturned from the inside.
The Dalai Lama, of course, has hooked up with the worst of Global Corporatism because the Lamas always seek out the power and money in every country they exploit, needing their wealthy ‘benefactors’ surrounding them , supporting and protecting them .
In turn the Lamas provide the same service as they did for the Khans and Imperial China : the mass institutionalization of Quietism. Traditional religions creat too many individualists, Lamaism will create ‘pod people’ who neither think rationally nor critically , but are obedient and passive, programmed into conformity and silence, to never speak out, never protest injustice or make a ‘judgment’ about what to accept or reject; ‘it’s all good’ these western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ say, no matter what the phenomenal world presents. It is a form of infantilism posing as spiritual advancement.
In the Lama sanghas are also now a critical mass of Lama-indoctrinated supporters and change agents for the infiltration of Hindu ‘Buddhist’ Lamaism into western culture, the psychobuddhists , i.e. psychotherapists and psychologists, journalists, and other academics who are also Tibetan ‘Buddhists, ‘ including one popular western psychologist, that is both a fanatic cult devotee of Sogyal and a vajrayanist who knows about Sogyal’s proclivities and yet promotes him as a ‘great master.’ Many Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ psychologists, however, recruit and use their western credentials unknowingly to spread what is really a sexually abusive cult of Lamaism and worship of Lamas, since the Lamas sexually promiscuous behaviors can be hidden even from their own larger sanghas.
Although undermining democratic principles by stealth and deceit is the hidden agenda of the Tibetan Lamas, Chogyam Trungpa , considered the father of modern western Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ was very open about his goal to ‘infiltrate western democracy’ and always spoke to us about an ‘enlightened dictatorship, ‘ i.e. a theocratic monarchy, as the best form of government.
Many who still follow him , under his son’s ‘enlightened leadership’ still adhere to that view, as does Osel Mukpo, whose ambitions, with his now over two hundred and fifty Shambhala centers world wide, is even more grandiose and Utopian than his father’s, and he quickly became the ‘cutting edge’ of Spiritual Materialism, a model for the other high and totally corrupted Tibetan Lamas to model. He immediately ‘signed up’ with the Peace and Love Train, something his father always scorned and made fun of, seeing the ‘currency’ potential in that ‘gravy train’.
Chogyam Trungpa’s infamous sexual exploits were also not exceptional and were totally supported and encouraged by the Hindu Tantras he studied since a young boy. He was only doing what was ‘normal’ inside the world of the polygamous Lamas and their ‘higher practices’ preserved for only them in Tibet.
His overt attempts to undermine democracy from the inside out by infiltration and ‘crazy wisdom’ tactics that had his Vajradhatu ‘pod people’ , as they were referred to in Boulder and environs, after ‘dropping out’ as hippies, and then encouraged by Trungpa to ‘drop back in’ as professors in prestigious universities, lawyers, real estate brokers, and the ubiquitous psychotherapists, i.e. any influential aspect of western society to implement a future ‘enlightened dictatorship’ for the west , calling it ‘Shambhala’ , the creation of an ‘Enlightened Society’. This missionary movement is completely congruent with the Dalai Lama’s busy ‘activities now’ all over the world and his Kalachakra Tantra teachings, which are about a future Shambhala, and is practiced by all the sects of Tibetan Buddhism , is ultimately about a millenialist’s holy war with other ‘religions’ to usher in a thousand years of ‘peace’ that has been ‘updated’ to be a ‘propaganda war’ with the new technology available to this fundamentalist, repressive and theocratic ‘religion’.
The only difference now is that Trungpa was open about his ambitions and goals, whereas the Dalai Lama is engaged in deception, with his many ‘masks’ and a massive Lama theatre of propaganda he is now displaying all over the world. Different masks for different nations and peoples. ‘Ecumenical’ for the other religious leaders, ‘feminist’ for the western women, ‘ecological’ for the environmentalists, ‘gender equality’ for the gays and lesbians, ‘peace and harmony’ for the naïve New Agers, any mask that is required to spread his mass monasticism by deception.
Many Lamas acted outraged by Trungpa’s behavior in the west, but not because it was unusual in the Lama’s world, only because Trungpa didn’t hide what he was doing as the rest of the Lamas do. Trungpa was completely open about his Theocratic Buddhist Monarchy ambitions and his sexual promiscuities with hundreds of western women . Trungpawasn’t as filled with hypocrisy and deceit as the rest of these Lamas now, who are building up their mass monastic hegemony ,even in China, and by stealth, all under the Dalai Lama’s megalomaniacal ambitions to create a world Buddhocracy right under western noses as they hand him the means and the ability to undermine democracy from the ‘inside out.’
Hypocrisy, deceit and double-talk fools the masses , including now the many religious leaders that believe that what the Dalai Lama says is what he really means, not knowing that in the Vajrayana Tantra ‘lying’ is perfectly acceptable to spread Tibetan Lamaism, and spreading Lamaism is considered the ‘highest bodhisattva act’ for a Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ devotee. So, as the Dalai Lama dons his ‘ecumenical’, ‘secular spirituality’ and ‘scientific masks’ on his whirlwind, non-stop, western socio-political propaganda tours declared to be ‘nonpolitical, ‘ other religious leaders, who know little about the Hindu Tantric Vajryana underpinnings of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ are completely fooled. They think that having their pictures taken with the Dalai Lama gives them much currency amongst their neoliberal , yoga and mediation practicing parishioners. To attract these new generations they are colluding with a leader who was a slave owner in 1959 and whose religion had more in common with the Aztecs than what the Buddha taught.
Trungpa, unlike the rest of these Young Turk Lamas from India and Nepal, pretending to be westernized, was right out there as dictator and sexual exploiter in his sangha, openly doing what the Vajrayana tantra of the Lamas allows and encourages of its adherents and the Lamas to spread Lamaism , i.e. that all social mores are to be turned on their heads to promote the Lamas’ obsessive goals to create a Tibetan Lama Buddhocracy.
Trungpa , however, never did trust the Dalai Lama or Lamaism for that matter, We were told to keep far away from the Gelugpas, which were considered , even by the other Lamas sects, to be the most political of all the sects in Tibet and the most repressive and tyrannical and whose hegemonic ambitions, which we can see in the Dalai Lama, always caused great suffering in Tibet. , His views on the ‘peace’ and ‘harmony’ purveyors that are part of this Dalai Lama ‘scientific and secular” entourage:
“For students who see the world in a very naïve way and have naïve attitudes toward spirituality, goodness is the issue, peace is the issue, euphoric states of Samadhi are the issue; therefore, they try to cultivate these things” CTR
“The only way to deal with spiritual materialism as such is to develop an ultimately cynical or critical attitude toward the teachings and the teachers and the practices that we’re involved with. We shouldn’t let ourselves be sucked in, but question twice, thrice, from the point of view, “Is this spiritual materialism to me, or isn’t it?” CTR
Nevertheless, Trungpa himself was a tragic victim of Tulkuism and could not escape the box that Lamaism creates, after all, this was his cultural context since he was taken from his family as a toddler, but he never trusted Lamaism and its trappings, and spoke of how cruel the Lamas were, including to his peasant mother when she stayed with him at Dudtsi-til. He wrote about the cruelty the monks engaged in , in his ‘unedited’ autobiography ‘Born in Tibet':
“One day I saw a man, probably a Moslem, being thrashed; he had killed a wild animal on the monastery’s protected ground. His hands had been tied behind his back and the monk was accusing him of all sorts of crimes while he belaboured him with a heavy stick. I felt great pity and asked another monk about it; he replied that this was the way to uphold the law. I said: Shall I have to do this when I am grown up and have charge of the monastery?’ His answer to this was: ‘You will be able to do what you like.’ ‘Well,’ I said, ‘I will never use punishment like that.’ CTR Born in Tibet ‘ pp 42-43
After Trungpa’s death the Lamas were free to carry on with their usual hypocrisy and deceit, and the Dalai Lama has taken Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ to a level of ‘spiritual materialism’ unseen or imagined before, exposing to what lengths these Lama hypocrites will go to create their mass monasticism, even hooking up with New Age charlatans , like Barbara Marx Hubbard, featured as a main player in the Dalai Lama ‘Renaissance’ propaganda film, to reach their long-range goals.
“We can quite safely say that hope, or a sense of promise, is a hindrance on the spiritual path. Creating this kind of hope is one of the most prominent features of spiritual materialism. There are all kinds of promises, all kinds of proofs. We find the same approach as that of a car salesman. Or it’s like someone demonstrating a vacuum cleaner and telling you how well you could clean your house if you would just buy it. If you would just buy that vacuum cleaner, how beautiful your room would be, completely free of dirt and dust, down to the last speck! Whether it is a vacuum cleaner salesman or a guru, we find the same level of salesmanship. That is why both are included in the same bag of materialists. There are so many promises involved. So much hope is planted in your heart. This is playing on your weakness” .

Trungpa, programmed by the Lamaism he distrusted but could not shake, was nevertheless driven by his own messianic grandiosity, fueled by his alcoholism, and he wrote, spoke and taught often about the failures of democracy . Trungpa’s ‘pod people’, made national news when Trungpa’s outrageous and tyrannical behaviors , enabled by his cult following of students and guards, at a Snowmass seminary he led were not whitewashed as they are today and when his celebrity students were openly proclaiming the destruction of democracy as part of their goals to create Trungpa’s ‘enlightened dictatorship’ headed by great ‘enlightened masters’ like himself, There were many journalists, very concerned about Trungpa’s political, social and cultural ambitions at this time, particularly since Trungpa and closer students like Allen Ginsberg were so outspoken about overthrowing democracy, as documented in the Great Poetry Wars at Naropa by Tom Clark . Of course those were the days we actually had a ‘fourth estate’ and real newspapers, with real journalists, Our own contemporary history indicates that there was great concern among a large portion of the poets, scholars and academics about the Lama Trungpa and his ambitions.
These ‘enlightened dictatorship’ ambitions of the Lamas went underground, however, as the Dalai Lama, over the last several decades, has managed to create a Tibetan Lama hegemony out of all the Lama sects, in order to deceptively undermine the western canon with the further spread of this Tibetan occult religion posing as ‘scientific’ and ‘secular’ mainly through the Mind and Life Institute and its many affiliates in the U.S. and now spreading into Europe.
Is this just more of the ignorance and naiveté of the west or is something more insidious going on, world wide, to spread this Tibetan Lama ‘Buddhism’ through these deceptive affiliations of the Dalai Lama and hooked up with Corporatism ?
Ruder Finn, number one Public Relations Firm for major corporations, has its own spin-off NGO based on these Hindu Tantra Buddhist memes called the “Global Peace Initiative for Women” . Why would a Public Relations firm representing pharmaceuticals, Boeing, the Oil Companies dictatorships like Maldives, and the Tobacco Company, who is hired to do damage control and public relations for all these groups, , spin out a Hindu based NGO with tantric underpinnings pretending to be about ‘empowering women?
GPIW actually used to talk about ‘Shakti’ a Hindu concept, on their NGO’s website, which, by the way no where lists that they are the NGO of Ruder Finn. A look at the GPIW Board of Directors, however, quickly reveals the One Dharma , Hindu -Buddhist underpinnings of Ruder Finn’s NGO. Again, ask oneself, why is a public relations firm, connected with major multinational corporations spinning out an NGO with these Hindi-Buddhist-Theravadan underpinnings, and why are they engaged in pushing a ‘spiritual agenda’ pretending to be ‘empowering women’ with their GAI, the Goddess, and these caste system, misogynistic religions as represented on their Board of Directors?
Whenever there is goddess worship in a culture, you can bet it is a misogynistic society on the ground and in the real lives of women. It is why Indian women have to take to the streets to protest the rape of women and little girls in their country, that continues unabated.
This is the same Ruder Finn, that was ‘hired’ to clean up the act of Maldives for the tourist industry until the world raised a hue and cry and they dropped the contract.
A cursory reading reveals the ‘philosophy’ of GPIW underneath. This is not about ‘empowering women’ if it is embracing the fundamentalists, misogynistic religions that have kept women ‘in their place’ for centuries. How could this empower women, since it is what has kept them at the bottom of the caste system in India for over a thousand years and counting?
Chogyam Trungpa may have paved the way for the ‘Buddhocracy Movement’ we see in the west today, but he didn’t have multinational , corporate backers and a wealthy plutocracy as the Dalai Lama does, with a much more hidden plan and goal in full force to implement this World Buddhocracy/Hindu Tantric movement that is causing chaos in the world, not peace , if we take off the blinders and just look clearly at the situation, factually , on the ground, what they are doing, how fast they are doing it, etc. and stop reading corporate controlled news outlets controlled by wealthy billionaires for our information on the Dalai Lama and Tibetan ‘Buddhism’.
It is also time to stop believing that because some individuals have a narrow skill for making a lot of money in finance it therefore makes them intelligent or wise or have a clue about what is best for the world. The opposite is usually true, since great wealth removes people from the ordinary world the rest of us occupy, and catapults them into a ‘god realm’ of their own delusions of power and ambition for a world domination of resources.
Here, for example, is Samdhong Rinpoche, a puppet for the corporate plutocracy that his lama kleptocracy depends on, and a ringer for the Thirteenth Dalai Lama himself, as this ex-pseudo-prime minister of the Tibetan Government in Exile speaks at Sogyal’s, Lerab Ling Temple , to a group of westerners. He warms up to his topic on the ‘downfalls and dangers of ‘democracy’ while quoting Krishnamurti, always anti-democratic and part of the Alice Bailey , World Theosophy movement, still another group of batty ‘intellectuals’ whose founding leaders ‘channeled’ Tibetan Lamas and paved the way for the live Lamas to infiltrate and spread into Europe and the U.S. during their diaspora.
Alice Bailey’s ideas are still alive and well at the United Nations through its influential Social and Economic Council with its ‘advisory status’ and hundreds of ‘new religious movements’ , some even designated as cults by their own countries, all with these Hindu-Tibetan Tantric influences, on the Council.
Now the ex-pseudo-Prime Minister of the Dalai Lama is out boldly demonizing the party-system of democracy at Sogyal’s Lerab Ling centers when he and other Lamas are not teaching their Hindu Vajrayana Buddhism, yet at the same time, presenting themselves to the larger western audiences as ‘democratically elected’ ministers of the Tibetan Government of Exile.
As if anyone in the Tibetan Government in Exile or any Tibetan under the Lamas’ thrall could even think, say or do anything without their God-King, the Dalai Lama’s permission and imprimatur.
Can there be a more insulting hate-filled gesture than to put down western culture and democracy and do it at the eight million dollar ‘temple’ paid for with western monies?
The same venue that little Sogyal, the Precious uses to allegedly abuse hundreds of western women, now using his same Lerab Ling center to take another brick out of a liberal democracy? How long will the west remain abysmally ignorant about who these Tibetan Lamas really are, believing only what they say and not looking at what they are actually doing?
The art of doublespeak has reached high art among the Lamas of Tibet. I wonder if the U.S. , French and other western governments and its people would appreciate that the tax exemptions for these Lamas, as they bring in millions of dollars and Euros , tax free, are facilitating the undermining of a liberal democracy by stealth, thanks to the Dalai Lama and his medieval representatives .
Just as the spread of the Hindu tantra vajrayana brought ‘chaos’ to Tibet and plunged it into the Age of Fragmentation, we are seeing the same chaos and amoralism develop in our own culture in the wake of the Lamas and their spread of the Hindu Tantric Vajrayana. The time of blaming the west for all the corruptions within Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ is over. That handy deception by the Lamas over the last decades won’t fly anymore as the veil is lifted on the true nature of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and its history.
Of course, there will always be western Tibetan practitioners with their own misogynistic agendas or confused beliefs that Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ has something to do with gender equality and/or sexual liberation, and these people will continue to gravitate toward Tibetan Lamaism on the basis of this primary confusion or other motivations.
These hedonists wouldn’t find the sexual amorality that prevails in western Tibetan vajaryana sanghas so wonderful, however, if they thought, ( even though Tibetan Lamaism discourages critical thinking among its practitioners) about what is already known about sexually abusive cults and groups, and that sexually abused little boys, (who are still being abused in Tibetan monasteries) can become sexually abusive adults and/or very confused about sexuality.
This article , written by a western Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ about the ubiquitious sexual abuse in Bhutanese Tibetan monasteries,who still can’t ‘connect the dots completely’ to see that Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ a.k.a. Lamaism is the problem , not this or that monastery or Lama. She doesn’t want to leave Lamaism itself so she quotes a popular Lama, Dzongsar Rinpoche to bulwark her article, who is pretending, in typical Lama doubletalk that he has been engaged in for decades, that he too shares her concerns about the exploitation of monks in these sanghas. Maybe he does, maybe he experienced it himself, but to quote this Lama is like quoting Warren Jeffs about the problems of sexual abuse in his own Fundamentalist, misogynistic Mormon Church.
Tibetan Lamaism’s Mayahana mask is being used to fool people that this is a ‘spiritual path ‘ of peace and being nice to each other’, while massively indoctrinating the world into Hindu Guru Vajrayana Tantra that is spreading chaos to undermine democracy and to resurrect one of the longest lasting and cruelest theocratic and sexually abusive kleptocracies on earth while calling it by other names that will fool the west: ‘peaceful’ , ‘ecumenical’, ‘gender equal’, ‘feminist’, ‘ecologically friendly’ and ‘non-violent’.
All western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ inside these sanghas, no matter how ‘rational sounding’ they appear, mentally straddle two centuries, the ninth and the twenty-first, having to ignore and compartmentalize their own social and cultural values to continue to pretend that what they are practicing has anything to do with Buddhism or what Shakyamuni Buddha taught. The Lamas, these naive westerners have been slavishly devoted to, however, neither studied nor comprehended what the Buddha taught because they and all their second-tier monks (the majority of Tibetans only twirled prayer wheels and couldn’t read or write in Old Tibet) have only been teaching and studying for centuries the Hindu based, vajrayana tantras of their own Lama lineages with the Mahayana layered over it to further ensure group conformity.
Tibetan ‘Buddhists have no translations of what the Buddha taught , only their own mumbo jumbo, Hindu Tantras, overlaid on Buddhist concepts of the Mahayana, yet Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ now outstrips Zen and the Theravadan in popularity among western students who alternate their Hindu Yoga sessions with their Tibetan chanting , thus seamlessly being soaked in Hinduism while believing they are ‘Buddhist’. In fact, factions of Zen and Theravadan Buddhism are now joining up with the Dalai Lama and Lamaism to promote their ‘One Dharma’, an amalgam of these three ‘streams’.
Creating a Lama Buddhocracy throughout the world is what the Lamas really mean by ‘compassion’ and ‘bodhisattva activity’ as their vajrayana teachings exhorts them to lie, steal, cheat, sexually indulge themselves, even kill or ‘liberate’ as justification for spreading Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and the spread of their mass monasticism. Assassinations were not an uncommon occurrence among the Lamas and killing would be justified, if done in the name of the Lamas’ particular form of ‘compassion’ that met their political agendas .
The Lamas have been raised without a western concept of ‘compassion’, i.e. empathy, concern for others suffering etc. Their view and long-range goal, as self-appointed and self-recognized great bodhisattvas, is to create a theocratic dictatorship, Lama style, to replace democracy, by infiltrating western society and its cultural forms to overturn democracy from the inside out. Period. This is why most of the Tibetan Lamas now have so many centers and temples they are building, with western monies and Asian monies, some Lamas have as many as two hundred and fifty centers, and even the ‘third stringer’ Lamas now have dozens of their own centers, that have suddenly sprung up all over the United States, Europe, Australia and now So East Asia. They have been building in China as well, while the Dalai Lama pretends to the world , with the help of a controlled corporate media, that China is ‘repressing’ Tibetan Lamaism. This is a lie. They have been rebuilding in China since the early nineteen eighties.
While trying to defend Tibetan Lamaism and the Vajrayana teachings, western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ have no idea that they have really been participating and involved in a Hindu Tantric cult of thought control by misogynistic, patriarchal priests who have always seen themselves as beyond the mere ‘human realm’ and at the top of the heap of their Caste System Brahminism. It truly doesn’t matter what sect a western Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ is participating in, most become shills for the Lamas, helping spread this sexually abusive priestly cult that they have been taught to believe is ‘Buddhism’ convinced they are creating a new world of peace, harmony, gender equality, ecumenicalism, and secular ethics, when they are doing the exactly the opposite.
A brief familiarization with the real Tibetan history under the Lamas, would quickly disabuse them of their delusions, but they are programmed inside these sanghas to never read ‘history’ not their own western history and particularly not of Tibet.
Every western Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ is taught to believe that anything critical said about the Lamas or Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ or the Dalai Lama is “Chinese propaganda’. Corporate news also helps with the cover-up of the Lama scandals.
What the Boulder, Colorado newspapers did to censor all the scandals at Naropa Institute that emerged throughout Trungpa’s reign their in the ’70’s and early ’80’s ( with the exception of the Boulder Monthly who followed the scandals at Naropa and with Trungpa diligently and documented them as though knowing there would need to be a record) has now been taken up by the corporate controlled news in the west, who now censor most things negative about Shangri-lai and the Tibetan Lamas.
Naropa Institute, now Naropa University since they were foolishly give accreditation, put Boulder, Colorado on the map, and it still exerts tremendous influence in this town as it spews out hundreds of psychobuddhists and ecobuddhists , avant garde artists, all steeped in new age cultism , world agenda politico-Buddhists, programmed in Hindu Tantra memes, whether they know it or not, while Naropa’s share of cult scandals and the latest tragic story of a Naropa graduate dance student’s suicide gets reported internationally, but hardly made the U.S. news and was quickly covered up.
Fortunately the parents of this tragic victim of one of the cult leaders at Naropa, and long term ‘guest teacher’ are not letting it remain covered up and have their own website to keep this tragedy above cover.
In the early nineteen eighties, U.S. journalists would have been all over this. This was big news, this cult scandal at Naropa , when we had real city newspapers with real investigative journalists, not the marketing journalists we have now at all major coporate news outlets , and even replacing city newspapers, trained to know what corporations like, so instead of waking citizens up about the charlatans that are in these ‘contemplative spiritual programs’, these neo ‘journalists’ write hagiographic material with hardly ever even a ‘hint’ of any balanced criticism against Shangri-lai.
The moral relativism and chaos sweeping our western countries and the explosion of these Hindu Lama ‘guru-cults’ is not coincidental. Charlatans often gather together for both protection and strength in numbers. None of these sexual abuses by the Lamas and their ilk are at all exceptional or rogue. It is the foundational teachings of these Lamas, their ‘bliss practice’ tantras and belief in medieval, alchemical ‘enlightenment transformation’ through the the transference of bodily fluids in the sexual act with a female ‘consort’ that drives all the Lamas and their behaviors. They are ‘exhorted in the Tantric texts’ to perform sex with as many women as they can for their ‘higher tantric’ sexual practices. It has nothing to do with reciprocal sexual union or bliss for both partners. It is about gaining power for the Lamas through the exploitation of female ‘energies’. A common complaint of western consorts was how boring it was for a westerner to be with a Tibetan Lama sexually. The sex act for the Lamas is very utilitarian and performed mechanically and quickly since ejaculating destroys the possibility of their version of ‘enlightenment’. Tibetan Tantra is not about a reciprocal, loving sexual union between equal partners, whatever the foolish New Age westerners might believe. The descriptions in the tantras are not exotic and titillating, except to those who are power hungry, mechanical and misogynistic.
These High Lamas are exploiters, par excellence, while appearing humble and self-effacing, except for the thrones of course, and everything they do is for themselves and their bliss, their comfort, their own peace and material prosperity, their Brahmin world of indulgence and material wealth and comfort, that is what matters to them, they have no feelings of empathy or concern for individual beings. These are men torn from their mothers and families when toddlers, raised in a superstitious belief system and medieval world that is autocratic, rigidly hierarchical, misogynistic and repressive , not exactly a formula for developing ‘compassionate individuals, who are wise and omniscient. Yet these Tibetan Lamas have convinced westerners, who project their own ‘compassion and wisdom’ onto the Lamas, that these boy-men are enlightened and humble bodhisattvas only here to save the world while compassionately bringing more peace and stability to the world.
How peaceful has the world actually become since these Tibetan Lamas unleashed their Hindu Vajrayana Tantric occult practices around the globe while cloaking themselves in the Mahayana Buddhist teachings ?
Since the Kalachakra has been given all over the world, by the Dalai Lama, (five times in the U.S. alone) to hundreds of thousands of people and touted as ‘bringing peace and harmony’, how peaceful and harmonious has the world actually become since the Lamas have been given free reign to infiltrate and spread their Hindu- based Vajrayana tantra?
When the real nature of this occult religion is revealed by a scandal here and there, western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ will occasionally point the finger at what they think is just another rogue and exceptional Tibetan Lama, engaged in their particular brand of ‘denial’ about Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and its Hindu Tantra in general, while letting their Lamas carry on, aided and abetted by these delusional, thought controlled, western sangha members, as the Lamas indulge in their various activities, unperturbed, believing that no one will stop them as they continue to call this sexual abuse of women their highest ‘bodhisattva activity’ and dispensation of their ‘higher teachings’ and ‘practices’ and of course a ‘great blessing’ for their victims, when the lamas are just using the women as sexual objects for their own so-called higher tantra practices.
Knowing that the Dalai Lama will always protect them with his massive propaganda machine used to confuse, conflate and coverup any and all scandals with the help of his wealthy friends all over the world and in high places, Lamas like Sogyal Rinpoche continue to sexually exploit young women knowing that he will be fully protected by all the other Lamas and Lama sects and the Dalai Lama and his wealthy benefactors in high places .
How can the these Lamas and their western devotees ever call out his behavior as sexual abuse when they know that this behavior is based on their own Hindu tantric Lama teachings?
Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ was not , still isn’t and never will be a gender equal religion . This is just more ridiculous institutionalized doubletalk that all cults engage in and the Lamas are the experts in doubletalk , given free rein to distort, lie and confuse to keep the public in the dark about who they are and what their true agenda is in the west. The Dalai Lama even creates a ‘limited hang out blog’ to lure in people who are confused by Tibetan Lamaism, started by a Dalai Lama Gelugpa monk , ‘Tenpel’, who is, interestingly, also a former Stasi . ‘Tenpel’ pretends to offer ‘neutral information’ about Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ . This fools people into going to this site, thinking it is a open forum where they can ask questions or express their confusion, anger and concerns about all the corruption they are experiencing with this or that Tibetan Lama or group , when really this site is to let out just a little of the Tibetan Lama scandals, while actually being a massive damage control site of the Dalai Lama to fool westerners with deception with doubletalk and obfuscation of the issues and particularly to do ‘damage control’ for the tsunami of sexual abuses by the Lamas that are now coming to light.
Tibetan Hindu Tantra, as the Lamas conceive it, performed with the lowest of their lower caste system participants, females, who, according to the Lamas can never be enlightened in this lifetime in a women’s body but can receive a ‘great blessing’ for a future life as a man if she sleeps with a Lama . Women were not allowed to cross the threshhold of a Tibetan monastery/shrineroom for fear of ‘contaminating’ it.
This pretense of gender equality is just that , another mask to fool the west. It is the religious superstitious stranglehold and its Hindustani Brahmin Guru Tantric caste system politics , that is keeping India the caste system it remains. Since women in India are at the bottom of the caste system’s hierarchy they have had to take to the streets over the gang rapes and the institutionalized misogynistic underpinnings in their multi-god realm and guru society, that religiously justifies the sexual abuse of children and women; it is the wheel that keeps this society mired in a superstitious, misogynistic quagmire of gross inequalities and caste system realities. Yet this is the religion now being embraced by so-called ‘feminists’ in the west. Have we gone mad?
Sexual abuse justified by religion is known to be the most difficult to stop. That is true, whether it is in a family system or a religious cult. The Lamas are never going to stop, because they are doing what their Hindu Tantra teachings tell them to do. To stop would require the whole edifice of the Lama tantric system to collapse.
The western Tibetan ‘Buddhists’ who are following these Lamas like mental slaves inside their sanghas are not going to stop these Lamas and their behaviors, they have been deeply indoctrinated into the medieval world of the Lamas, and programmed to see the Lamas as ‘perfect’ and without any fault,, while at the same time being told in their ‘spiritual practices’ with the Lamas to ‘not be political’ themselves, to ‘not read history’ and to pay no attention’ to the relative world around them anymore. This ensures that the scandals are sealed off from individual consciousness in the sanghas of true believers.
Every single Lama inside these sanghas is engaged always in turning westerners away from their own cultural values , instilling a subtle sense of ‘self-hatred’ , one of the first things a cult does , i.e. make a person reject their own culture and history in order to replace it with the frozen in time Tibetan Lama view of the world. All of these Lamas start their first retreats with ‘put-downs’ and jokes about the west, and soon these western groups, already hating their own culture, their heads filled with ‘globalization memes’ and idealized projections about more ‘primitive cultures’ as being somehow purer, and simpler, elevating poverty as something to aspire to, laughing right along with the Lama jokes in group unison, and unwittingly helping to promote a “third world ” World for the global ninety-five percent, with a One Dharma religious arm, that will brook no protest and will ensure there is no vehicle for justice or economic equality for the world. This is so helpful for a Corporate Plutocracy that learned so much by ‘outsourcing’ in countries where ‘karma’ and ‘reincarnation’ , a focus on future lives instead of this one creates a ‘cloud of unknowing’ of what is happening ‘on the ground’ and affecting one’s life now.
A war of propaganda, activated by the Dalai Lama’s ‘spiritual will’ as he calls his massive ‘nonpolitical’ ambitious agenda these days ( there is no separation between the ‘spiritual’ and the ‘political’ for the Dalai Lama) , is set to seduce, undermine and ultimately destroy traditional religions – his political agenda has already begun in the year of 2014, the year of the Dalai Lama – an agenda that is the opposite of ecumenicalism , freedom or ‘enlightenment’ and now the Dalai Lama has seduced and joined forces with other Buddhist streams and other naïve religious leaders, who have no idea of the true history of Tibetan and the real nature of the Tantric Vajrayana that always causes chaos and fragmentation wherever its spreads- what we are already experiencing in the west now- as a prelude to the ‘religiously supported’ Totalism that will result, if these despots are allowed to further their ambitions throughout the world. The Theravadan and Zen groups are quite enamored these days by the Dalai Lama and the idea of a One Dharma Buddhist path and yet nothing could be more dangerous for the world and for freedom.
Buddhism as a spiritual path is one thing but Buddhism and the State? Always a disastrous mix and becomes the religious justification and vehicle for profound conformity, misogyny and often supports and strengthens repressive dictatorships (Burma, Sri Lanka, Pol Pot’s Cambodia ). Imagine then what a World Buddhocracy would be like? Yet this what these western ‘peacemakers’ seem to have in mind, implementing their Tibetan Lamas’ One Dharma Plan for the rest of us, They must be ‘dumbest’ amongst us, while huckstering themselves as the ‘brightest’, the ‘luminaries’.
By bringing all the other Buddhist streams on Board, primarily Zen and Theravadan, and the ‘change agents’, the teachers, psychologists, and other academics on board with the Mind and Life Institute and the Dalai Lama’s other disguised affiliate organizations, the Lamas are actually now trying to implement their long range plan for a One World , One Religion with themselves at the top of the theocratic ‘heap’ and naming it , as they always do, the opposite of what it is: ‘Secular Spirituality’. Now Zen, Theravadan and Tibetan Buddhist teachers are making gestures of joining forces and calling it the “Three Rivers, ” merging, or “Integrated Dharma”.
Can anyone think of a more horrible vision than a world that was outwardly ‘Buddhist’ , but was actually a repressive, misogynistic, androcentric theocracy in reality?
Yet this is the dream of these Buddhist ‘religious sects’ now that are into power and money , with always the ‘priests’ in the middle of the ‘master-slave’ paradigm, Zen that brought us the Kamikaze and a military Buddhism, Burmese Buddhism, bringing us the lineage stream of 969 ‘s fanatic group who are hacking Muslim’s to death in Myanmar , both joining forces and led by the nose by the Lamas of Tibetan Buddhism, a religious dictatorship in itself, all three lineage streams coming together, teaching together, and merging into the One Dharma. These groups are now opening One Dharma Centers, to merge these streams to lay the foundation for the “One Dharma to Complete the Dumbing Down Process’ , and be the One Religion for the Corporate Plutocracy all over the world.
This is a geopolitical movement that has nothing to do with secularism or spirituality and more to do with economics and the sociopolitical imaginings of a wealthy plutocracy, that now wants a totalistic religious arm to keep people content and quiet, team players, group controlled, accepting their ‘austerity’ as their ‘karma.’
The list of collaborators who are ignoring the real history of Tibetan ‘Buddhism’ and its ‘occult nature’ tied into a repressive theocracy is noteworthy but not surprising when one considers the ‘corporatization’ of higher education as it slowly turns itself into a vehicle for ‘politically correct’ , religiously correct, One Dharma propaganda ‘host’ for this occult , superstitious ‘religion’ to create contented , conforming ‘workers’ accepting their ‘karma’ and ‘dreaming of a better life’ that awaits them in the next life, only if they are very, very good quiet and politically correct’. All the while still donning the tattered mask of a providing young people with a ‘liberal education’. The new globally ‘corporatized’ university.
Only the mask of ‘compassion’ will be left as the world becomes more about ‘gestures, rhetoric and appearances’ , while rationalizing their indifference with an ‘it’s all an illusion anyway’ meme, that is being deeply implanted into western society with each younger generation to create the ‘passive nihilism’ that has kept India in a caste system to this day.
