Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s reorganization of KTD is bad for America

“Screw it,” Osel says, “let’s run with our own understandIng of the Gyalwa Karmapa in America based on our experience with the lineage from Trungpa to present.”

“Instead of as Tibetans see us” he continues, ” which is insulting given their history as a people.”

“Thanks to Trungpa, Khenchen Thrangu, and Khenpo Karthar, our three men from Kham,” Japhy responds, “we have everything we need to proceed on our own without Tibetans.”

“That which Khenpo Gangshar introduced our three men from Kham to at Thrangu Monastery before they fled Tibet,'” he continues, “the true nature of their minds, this tradition lives on in those of us they chose to transmit it to as such.”

“Regardless, it’s not like we have any choice in the matter at this point,” Japhy adds, “based on Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s current reorganization of his sect’s governance of its monastic seat at Woodstock, New York.”

    It’s true. We haven’t any choice.

    As if we were rats, the Tibetans have backed us into a corner. As a result there is nothing left to do than defend ourselves and our interests.

    But let us remember that even though the “Three Men from Kham” gave most of us all that we need to recieve the lineage, most of those who are only coming on the scene these days don’t have access to the same practice.

    Instead, our current overlords and masters prefer to keep many in the dark these days unless of course one comes from means.

    If you have money, people are taken from the fields and allowed in the house. They are still not allowed to use the same china and silverware, but they are of a slightly higher status.

    Once a slave to Tibetans, always a clave to Tibetans…
