Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Labrangs ‘Sean Spicer’ worthy attempt to flip the script back to his Karmapa’s favor.
Meanwhile, the office of Ogyen Dorje has refused to comment on the fresh development. However, common Tibetans feel that Thaye Dorje was never a rightful successor to the title of Karmapa. “One cannot be a practitioner and a married person at the same time,” Lobsang Wangyal, the director of Miss Tibet pageant. said, adding that in Tibetan Buddhism only accomplished spiritual masters can marry and yet claim the spiritual authority.
So Lobsang Wangyal, the director of the Miss Tibet pageant, says so.
For us that Ogyen Trinley Dorje can’t ‘disrobe’ rules him out as 17th Karmapa as such.
A ‘living Buddha’ can’t disrobe and marry but a Karmapa can.
A Karmapa can ‘disrobe’ and marry.
