Picture of Ponlop Rinpoche whom for years has been presumed to be the champion of our cause in Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s inner circle but whom when we needed him most, when KTD banished Bardor Tulku, he claimed to have no pull with the powers that be, the inner circle that advises OTD in such matters
“Correct me if I am wrong but he is the son of a made man, Rangjung Rikpe Dorje’s fixer, the 16th Karmapa’s much feared Secretary General Dhamchoe Yongdu.”
“His father was the 16th Karmapa’s labrang, his brother currently holds the very same position, so if he isn’t in Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s inner circle I want to know is.”
“If you want to play who’s who in Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s inner circle, if you stipulate that Ponlop Rinpoche isn’t in that circle, here’s a clue as to who is.”
“If you want to be in Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s inner circle you better be connected to the people that got him out of occupied Tibet, one of them, that’s the ticket.”
“HHDL claims he had nothing to do with the extraction, Ogyen Trinley Dorje was choppered out of Chinese held territory, so we can presume Tibetans weren’t the ones that made this happen, the people with the money to make all the pieces of what happened come together like they did.”
End scene. Fini.
