Will the real 17th Karmapa please stand up

Picture of Traleg Rinpoche, a diaspora Rinpoche, whose Yangsi has been condemned by Ogyen Trinley Dorje to live the very same fate he claims to have risked his life to escape, which makes absolutely no sense if you think about it really

“Since 2008, Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s first visit to America, much about who he is as a person has come to light, red flags, that need to be addressed moving forward.”

Carol continues.

“We’ve reached that point in our relationship with him where we need to take a hard look at where this is going, whether we have a future together, so to speak.”

Amy replies.

“Item number one on my list is his repatriation of Traleg Rinpoche, a teacher near and dear to me personally, to Thrangu monastery in occupied Tibet of all places.”

Amy continues.

“That’s some cold shit, dude, given your claim that you yourself escaped occupied Tibet, which appears to not be true in retrospect.”

Amy pauses.

“Try to get your mind around how Ogyen Trinley Dorje could bring himself to go there, if he really did in fact escaped Tibet like he claims to have done.”

Amy adds.

“I can’t.”

End scene. Fini.

    Not sure what the Tibetan strategy is. They should Do Unto Others …. Senior rinpoches had the same plan to keep Karmapa locked away in Tsurphu.
