Ogyen Trinley Dorje accused of collaborating with China’s occupation of Tibet

Picture of Ogyen Trinley Dorje instagramed by the old man to illustrate the following discussion by the Naropa Prairie Dog Players of the young man’s role in repatriating the Traleg line of Tulkus to Thrangu Monastery in occupied Tibet, if he worked with the Chinese to make this happen as he appears to have done, the Karmapa Yangsi’s faction of the Karma Kagyy sect has some serious explaining to do as far as we in the West of the greater Karma Kagyu sect are concerned

According to the old man’s source on this subject Thrangu monastery in occupied Tibet is not Traleg Rinpoche’s monastic seat.

That’s from on the ground in Australia.

Therein lies the rub, if what he is being told is in fact so.

In a nutshell, as far as Traleg Rinpoche’s students are concerned he established his monastic seat in Melbourne, Australia, his home in Australia, the place where he chose to pass into Parinirvana as such, if you believe that as a lama he had the ability to choose where and when he died, as the old man believes.

Sally replies.

“What I’m finding online about Traleg Rinpoche’s life is that he didn’t just live in Australia.”

Sally adds.

“Without question Rinpoche was Australian, and his Yangsi should have been if not an Aussie, at the very least been enthroned there.”

If true, clearly, Ogyen Trinley Dorje has some explaining to do.

“According to my research it was Ogyen Trinley Dorje that notified Thrangu Rinpoche that the Chinese government had selected a Traleg Yangsi.”


The old man believes it was Thrangu Rinpoche who made this happen given his long standing relationship with the Chinese Communist party dating back to its recognition of Ogyen Trinley Dorje as 17th Karmapa.

“He could have but the narrative as told by the Karma Kagyu sect online has Ogyen Trinley Dorje writing a letter to Thrangu Rinpoche with the news.”

The plot thickens.

Jonathan replies.

“If true this means a level of cooperation between Ogyen Trinley Dorje and the United Front Work Department.”

Sally replies.

“Come on, just say it, Ogyen Trinley Dorje is a collaborator in Tibet’s occupation.”

Jonathan continues.

“Well, His Holiness obviously had to have worked directly with the United Front Work Department, the Chinese Communist Party, to make this happen.”

Sally replies.

“The Communist Party has published a book on Thrangu Monastary which I was directed to if I wanted to learn more about Traleg Rinpoche’s love for his homeland.”

This is all news to the old man but it doesn’t look good for Ogyen Trinley Dorje if he indeed collaborated with the occupiers of Tibet to repatriate the Traleg line of Tulkus to Thrangu Monastery in Occupied Tibet.

End scene. Fini.
