Picture of Tibetans practicing Buddhism which includes much which we want nothing to do with in our practice of Buddhism notwithstanding the belief of those post-diaspora Tibetans today whom believe we have no right to do so
“Even if it is true that Rangjung Rikpe’s people did murder a child and blinded his father for putting his son forth as the reincarnation of the Fifteenth Karmapa.”
“It isn’t our place to take issue with anything whatsoever as it pertains to how Tibetans practice Buddhism, if it is Tibetan as Westerners we have no right to question it.”
“Chogyam Trungpa not only respected our right to question Tibetan tradition in our practice of Buddhism, in fact he encouraged us to do so.”
“As long as we brought that which we took exception to as it pertains to how Tibetans practice Buddhism to our practice.”
“And didn’t get hung up over how Tibetans practice Buddhism in the process.”
End scene. Fini.
