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.
“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.
Kalu Rinpoche was straight up gang raped by monks as a child.
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.
Our poster children for the Tibetan tradition of child trafficking, endangerment, and abuse.
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?
