From fellow reader “Kate” we have Rinpoche’s response via Facebook to the Karma Kagyu sect’s attempt to coverup his rejection of Tibetan tradition.
Here is a follow-up post from JKR in response to the official statement posted by the Labrang. https://www.facebook.com/nyima20/?fref=nf
“The people in the labrang has send that official letter but to all the monks and others they have said I left cause of a friend ! Well it’s easy to accuse me of running away because of a girl and most people instantly believe, they say this to hide the true facts to why I left and to cover their dirty tracks. My friends have been complaining about how they have been threatened by the people in the labrang and have been a victim of verbal abuse.
How long will they sustain this politics? They also have a life of there own why are they being dragged into this ? Few friends have left me cause of the way the people in labrang treated them after they supported me, some even sustained physical abuse.
The way they treated me and my friends how can they even expect me to return ?
As always I am true to myself and I don’t care what others spread rumour about me but spare my friends.
If you have any queries message me directly stop involving my friends and stop bothering them 🙏.
I am sick and tired of all these politics!
For those who support me in this difficult time thank you very much once again!
Tashi delek !”
