A Karmapa is a horrible thing to waste: This happened in Paris, France, June 5, 2016

Dear Readers,

Here’s a nice piece about Ogyen Trinley Dorje having a moment during his recent visit to Paris, France, “The Power of Compassion: Four-Armed Avalokiteshvara Empowerment,” which I submit for your consideration as a reminder of what is at stake in our effort to hold the Karma Kagyu sect to account for collaborating with China’s genocidal occupation of Tibet, that which has been obscured by the infamy of having done so, the opportunity to spend some quality time with a Karmapa.

We have been fortunate that it served China’s interests to have Ogyen Trinley Dorje in India rather than at Tsurphu Monastery in Occupied Tibet.

If the Karma Kagyu sect had its way he would still be there.

Thankfully China had other plans for His Holiness.

Karmapa Chenno!

  1. tinfoil you’re missing the whole point buddhism isn’t about politics it’s about you!! your mind!! watch China become aBuddhist nation my Sinophile friends tell me that China is full of closet-Buddhists in temples far up in the mountains ron leifer (ask me, i’ll point you to the point)

    • Ron,

      Thank you for not posting all caps.

      Have we seen our last Karmapa that is not a creature of China?

      Yes, thanks to the Karma Kagyu sect, we have.

      The Karma Kagyu must be held to account for collaborating with China’s genocidal occupation in my opinion.

      This is my thing.

      Blessed be the disciple that suffers their guru.

      My Rinpoche, my guru, Khenpo Karthar collaborated with China’s occupation of Tibet.

      This happened.

      I remember how I felt about his doing so.

      I’ve struggled with for over thirty years.

      He has brought shame on the Karma Kagyu lineage the moment he returned to occupied Tibet.

      This is not what the 16th Karmapa tasked him with when His Holiness sent him to America to teach us.

        It’s just getting a little old. Surely you have something else to say.

        • Rob,

          As long as there is a Karma Kagyu sect in America I will speak out against what it did.

          Not your thing?

          When we as Karma Kagyu address what happened then perhaps I’ll have something else to share with you.

          Bill
