Is Ogyen Trinley Dorje right about us “Some people are ready to become serious practitioners, and some are not” or is he just full of shit?

Dear readers,

Salut mes amis !

I call bullshit on Ogyen Trinley Dorje for this insult to our intelligence.


“Some people are ready to become serious practitioners, and some are not. Some just like Buddhist teachings, but are not ready to become a follower.”

Voilà !

This is not a path to liberation.

It’s the normalization of tyranny.

Courage !

    Ken McLeod’s weird need to “clarify” Dzongsar Khyentse’s already clear statement on tulkus:

    Well, it is true that some people become practitioners while others consume teachings as an intellectual exercise or as a kind of jewelry to wear when they look in the mirror. (Im guilty of the latter myself, and I must say, the dharma does look good on me.) If someone receives teachings but fails to take the step to become a practitioner, is it because that person is “not ready?” I’m not sure, but I could definitely see it that way.
