Richard asks,”How do we disrupt the Karma Kagyu sect’s control over the Karmapa in America?”
Disrupt the flow of money to the sect’s landlords.
“When I began with Khenpo Karthar in 1981 his landlord, Tenzin Chonyi, couldn’t legally as us for donations.”
KTD wasn’t a 501c3.
“Let 2015 be Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s last visit to America on behalf of the landlords of the Karma Kagyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism.”
We make where Ogyen Trinley Dorje comes from an issue for the American public at large.
“The landlords of the Karma Kagyu sect can’t account for where their money comes from.”
Literally, they can’t account for their money, where it comes from or where it goes.
“Let Ogyen Trinley Dorje be the last Karmapa dependent on the landlords of the Karma Kagyu sect.”
We insist that Ogyen Trinley Dorje, as we do ourselves with our future generation, provide today’s young Rinpoches with the education necessary to support themselves.
“Disrupt the flow of money to the sect, disrupt the lineage’s dependence on the sect.”
This is how we disrupt the control of the Karma Kagyu sect over the Karmapa in America.
