ICYMI From the “Empowerment of Ösel Tendzin” published by Vajradhatu, 1977


In retrospect we can say that it was at this paricular point in our relationship with Tibetans that they began to fear for the future of Tibetan Buddhism.

Even fourty years later that this happened here, as if you can make someone a lineage holder, is problematic for me, that some of us actually considered going in such a direction.

It’s common enough for Tibetans to engage in such public displays of religiousity but for us to so steal their thunder as such had to have alarmed the powers that be of the time.
