Is Ogyen Trinley Dorje fit to continue to serve as 17th Karmapa?

Our poster children for the Tibetan tradition of child trafficking, endangerment, and abuse, Jamgon Kongtrul, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, and Kalu Rinpoches

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

Are you an enabler of the trafficking, endangerment, and abuse of children that is Tibetan tradition?

If need be, if this is Tibetan tradition, I say Tibetan tradition and anyone who supports it be damned.

Regarde !

“Religion has the capacity to silence critical thinking and create blindness in entire groups of people. It can infect the minds of followers so completely as to allow the most egregious sexual acts against children and others to go unchallenged for centuries.” Darrel Ray

Jamgon Kongtrul was trafficked as a child.

It happened.

Kalu Rinpoche was straight up gang raped by monks as a child.

It happened.

Ogyen Trinley Dorje parents were bullied into giving him to the Karma Kagyu sect, monks, all in the name of Tibetan tradition, without question a text book example of child trafficking, endangerment, and abuse.

It happened.

Violà !

Our poster children for the Tibetan tradition of child trafficking, endangerment, and abuse.

Donc !

Given what we know of Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s responses to both the Kalu Rinpoche scandal, His Holiness never made an issue of what happened to Rinpoche as a child, and his ongoing cover up of the Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche scandal, all in the name of preserving the Tibetan tradition of child trafficking, endangerment, and abuse.

I ask you this, if I may.

Is Ogyen Trinley Dorje fit to continue to serve as 17th Karmapa or should he step down as the head of the Karma Kagyu sect and instead commit himself to the life of a dharma practitioner in retreat?

Courage!

Bill

    Meanwhile in Sikkim:

    “BUDDHIST ORGANIZATIONS TO BOYCOTT INDEPENDENCE DAY

    Various Buddhist organizations have decided not to observe Independence Day on Aug 15, 2016 out of protest to the governments for not allowing Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to visit Sikkim

    Lending support to the Denzong Lhadey, who have been carrying on a hunger strike for the last one month, the Denjong Monasteries Chogchen (DMC) say, “When our dharma itself is not at safe hand, there is no point in feeling proud on such occasion as this. When we are suffering, we cannot rejoice ourselves with such observation.”

    They go on to add, “It is very unfortunate to see the adamant stand of the Indian government which now makes us feel regret to be Indian. We call upon the Indian and Sikkim governments to immediately start all exercise necessary to pave the much anticipated visit of the Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to Sikkim. We request the Indian government to make our living in India easy and with dignity if it considers Sikkimese buddhist as its citizen. It is very disgusting that it do not trust us and our dharma as Indian.

    Meanwhile, National Sikkimese Bhutia Organization (NASBO 371 F) informs, “This organization has decided to boycott this year’s Independence Day celebration in view to Indian authorities condemning attitude to disrespect our Buddhist dharma by not allowing His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to Sikkim to bless his devotees.””

    “In fact, the Indian authority has left no reason for us to observe the day in the absence of our dharma guru. Owing to the adamant attitude of the Indian authorities, we now propose our Buddhist brethren to knock the door of the United Nation Organizations and its various forums for this inhuman treatment being meted out to us.”
