Is it time for China’s Billionare Karmapa to step down as head of his Karma Kagyu sect?

  

Dear readers,

Since 2007, not once, but twice, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, China’s Billionare Karmapa has been implicated in schemes to defraud the people of India as head of his Karma Kagyu sect.

As head of said Karma Kagyu sect, the buck stops with His Holiness.

A fish rots from the head, which begs the question, is it time for Ogyen Trinley Dorje to step down as head of his Karma Kagyu sect and enter retreat for the foreseeable future until this matter is resolved to our satisfaction.

  1. Bill whoever you are! this is outrageous he is not NOT China’s Karmapa He is the international Karma Kagyu’s Karmapa and you’d better have more than an empty, libelous charge to back your accusations or else karma’s gonna get you and I hope it does what the hell does “implicated” mean? ron leifer

  2. bill you are a coward or else you’d give your last name

    • Ron, Everyone here knows who I am. My name is Bill Schwartz, senior disciple of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, founding member of Chicago KTC,, and so on.

      I’ve been doing this for a decade now.

      I have a Shorty Award for the best of Buddhism on Twitter.

      I was also a Blogisattva finalist for my 2010 blog on the KTD’s banishment of Bardor Tulku.

      I have been called many things over the years but never a coward.

      Bill

        ” you’d better have more than an empty, libelous charge to back your accusations or else karma’s gonna get you and I hope it does ”

        Do these sound like the words of a published Buddhist psychotherapist?

        I think not.

        Thanks for your courage, Bill!

  3. Yes the time is near but I imagine there are still some unanswered questions, like the whereabouts of the black crown, Situpa’s influence, and that of the Dalai Lama’s meddling.

    • Karmaguyurmeygyamtso,

      Situ Rinpoche’s role in this was as Thrangu Rinpoche’s creature.

      The Dalai Lama was presented by a fait accompli, China’s choice for 17th Karmapa, to which he had no choice but to accept as such.

  4. Thank you Bill, may you never be known as a coward. Maybe a bit odd but brave. 🙂

    Bill, I am kinda amused that you are telling OTD to go into retreat. I second that! I mean, how many of the so-called spiritual teachers truly practice nowadays? Going into a real retreat might be more inspiring than collecting money from devotees for glitzy books and recycling awareness videos.
