Thanks to the Panama Papers we today know that the 31 year old 17th Karmapa was caught last year hiding the money he used to pay for his million dollar Kagyu Monlam in an offshore bank account funded by members of the Chinese Buddhist community whom support China’s occupation of Tibet.
Yes, it is time for 58 year old me to protest said Karmapa’s Kagyu Monlam Prayer Festival to be held February 13-19 this year in India.
I can’t believe this is still a thing in 2017.
What’s wrong with kids these day?
22 year old me would have been all over this bullshit.
According to the Lion’s Roar the Chinese declared HHDL’s 2017 Kalachakra illegal.
This actually happened.
Let us therefore take China’s prohibition of Tibetans attending HHDL’s Kalachakra to be our benchmark here.
If China prohibits Tibetans from attending the Kagyu Monlam this year I am wrong to question the 17th Karmapa’s claim to be the 16th Karmapa’s legitimate successor.
If China doesn’t prohibit Tibetans from attending the Kagyu Monlam this year I am right to question the 17th Karmapa’s claim to be the 16th Karmapa’s legitimate successor.
To date the Chinese have yet to declare the 31 year old Karmapa’s Kagyu Monlam to be illegal.
