Osel said, “I believe the Trungpa Tulku was ‘left’ in Tibet by Shambhala International.”
For the record the repatriation of the Trungpa succession to Surmang happened before Shambhala Buddhism was even a thing.
“It was the Karma Kagyu sect which put the Trungpa Yangsi on his throne at Surmang monastery.”
Sumang Monastery got what it wanted.
“Much to the dismay of the late Trungpa’s students in the West that had hoped for an outcome more to their benefit.”
The Chinese Government got what it wanted.
“The re-establishment of the traditional role China’s rulers had previously enjoyed as arbiters of succession in Tibetan Buddhism.”
As did the Karma Kagyu sect.
“The repatriation of the Trungpa succession to Surmang Monastery in what once was Tibet.”
It would be as if the late Chogyam Trungpa never made a life for himself in the West.
