Tibetan Buddhism today is a dictatorship friendly rebranding of Gandhi’s doctrine of non-violence but instead of promoting civil disobedience it promotes fraud and sexual abuse

Tire-toi une bûche,

One need look no further than China’s 17th Karmapa.

Lama Norlha, the Harvey Weinstein of Tibetan Buddhism, is still a Karma Kagyu in good standing, thanks to “His Holiness”.

And let us not forget how the Panama Papers caught “His Holiness” laundering money for the Chinese.

All the peace and harmony in the world but instead of equality and justice won by non-violent civil disobedience Buddhism offers instead fraud and sexual abuse with inequality and injustice for all, our Tibetan Buddhism today.

His followers in America now have their 17th Karmapa at KTD but Buddhists here shun “His Holiness” since his being busted by the Panama Papers laundering money for the Chinese

Tire-toi une bûche,

Nobody wants to associate themselves with Asian Buddhists these days.

We want nothing to do with Buddhists that don’t share our values.

The Buddhists of Myanmar whom rape and murder Muslim women an children.

Buddhists such as China’s 17th Karmapa caught by the Panama Papers laundering money.

These are Buddhists leader whom no self respecting Buddhist here want to associate themselves with, obviously.

The honeymoon is over for these Buddhists in Western Buddhism.

“Revealed: Dalai Lama’s ‘personal emissary’ suspended over corruption claims”

Tire-toi une bûche,

“Dhonden, 53, strongly disputes the allegations. In a move that shows how seriously he regards the potential impact of the claims against him, the quiet monk, who is respected in Dharamsala, the hill town in India which hosts the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, has contracted Patterson Belknap, a major New York City law firm to defend him.

Attorneys for the law firm said in an email that the allegations against their client relate to events that “occurred nearly a decade ago, are largely inaccurate and otherwise relate to conduct that is not unlawful, unethical, or even inappropriate”. They added in the email the allegations have been “designed to falsely and unfairly tarnish” Dhonden’s reputation. A source close to the monk said any payments he received were for legitimate work done and business expenses.

Those lawyers are now locked in a behind-the-scenes battle with Daniel Kranzler, the Seattle businessman and philanthropist who claims that for several years he felt pressured into making payments to the monk, including some he alleges were made in cash to avoid leaving a trace. theguardian.com

Karmapa Thaye Dorje’s statement on the Rohingya crisis

Tire-toi une bûche,

“In life, it is normal to experience misunderstandings and doubtful feelings. When those experiences arise, we must not try to cover them up or suppress them – they are unstoppable. And so when they arise, we should let them rise on their own, and then let them fall on their own.

The more we try to resist emotions and postpone them from rising, the worse they get – they fester. It is this aspect of postponing emotions that causes real anxiety, and as a result one could ruminate more and more, and this then has the potential to transform into something violent.
In this situation people may even use the name of religion, philosophy, science or even race to justify acting on those emotions. Therefore, we must find the courage to let our emotions rise and fall naturally, just as a storm rises and sets on its own. For a storm never acts with an agenda or intention.

So, when emotions arise, we must never act upon them, for then we are caught in the storm. Instead, we can observe them, and let them settle on their own. In this way, we will help prevent any further suffering.” Karmapa.org

China’s 17th Karmapa supports the Chinese position. Birds of a feather flock together.

In India money laundering disgraced Chinese Karmapa back in court for hiding stash of dirty money in suitcases in Dalai Lama’s Monastery 

Tire toi une bûche,

”The matter was discussed at length among the various government departments and it was decided that in light of the Karmapa’s importance and in order not to upset relations between India and the Tibetan Government-in-Exile, the state would withdraw prosecution against the leader,” Senior advocate JS Attri – representing Himachal Pradesh, said. dnaindia.com

He’s guilty but the Indian Government is deffering to the Tibetan Government in exile. Clout. This is petty criminality compared to his laundering money for the Chinese. His career as a criminal began with him using the Dalai Lama’s money to hide suitcases of foreign currency like a Tibetan Tony Soprano.

Disgraced Tibetan Buddhist teacher finds amusement in the sexual abuse of women 

Tire-toi une bûche,

“Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, often addressed with the honorific “Rinpoche” and also known as Khyentse Norbu, is a well known Buddhist teacher, writer, and filmmaker from Bhutan. He caused ripples in the Tibetan Buddhist communities in August when he wrote a rambling 10,000 word-long letter both defending Sogyal Lakar’s abusive actions from within the Vajrayana context and questioning the very credentials that Lakar claimed to hold.”

“Karmapa’s office clarifies rumours about US asylum”

Tire-toi un bûche,

The Office of Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje issued clarification concerning a rumour saying he is seeking asylum in the United States and not coming back to India.

The Karmapa has been on a four-nation tour since 17 May, to the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, and the US, where he is currently.

While in Germany, the Karmapa had to cut short his visit and return to the United States due to the illness and hospitalisation in New York of his 80-year-old senior attendant, Gelek Kunchok, who has cared for him since his childhood.

In the United States, the Karmapa himself went through a comprehensive health check-up which revealed new health concerns. His physicians have advised him to take time for further treatment and full rest and recovery.

“This is difficult in India because of his busy schedule. Therefore, His Holiness has decided to extend his stay in the United States until he recovers fully,” the statement released by his office said.

“Tsurphu Labrang has come to learn that there are various rumours circulating about the reasons for extension of His Holiness’ stay in the United States. These are false and should not be heeded. His Holiness is in the United States purely for medical reasons.”

As reported here before he arrived in the UK this Springnthe fact of the matter is that India gave China’s 17th Karmapa his walking papers. As also previously noted here in 2016 the 17th Karmapa was caught laundering money for the Chinese thus blowing his cover as such as far as the Indian Goverment is concerned. Shamar Rinpoche was correct. The 17th Karmapa is a Chinese active measure. When India and China clashed this Spring the Indian Goverment sent China’s 17th Karmapa packing. Thanks to the Panama Papers there was no Karmapa Foundation teaching tour schedueled for 2017. Neither Ringu Tulku in Europe nor Ponlop Rinpoche in the United States dare risk it. There is no denying the narrative that the 17th Karmapa is a Chinese active measure. He was caught laundering Chinese money in India. It remains to be seen whether the Indian Government will ever allow China’s 17th Karmapa to return to India.  We have seen the last of China’s 17th Karmapa’s high profile Karmapa Foundation sponsered teaching tours in the West. The Chinese have taken control of the 17th Karmapa’s properties here in the United States, KTD, and an estate in New Jersey, where they have been keeping him since his arrival here. Any narrative to the contrary is disinformation from the 17th Karmapa’s Chinese handlers and should be regarded as such.

Leader of the Buddhist world China supports genocide in Myanmar while Buddhists of the world dare not criticize Buddhist monks raping and murdering their neighbors in the name of Buddhism

“One country, however, has expressed unwavering public support for the country. China supports Myanmar’s efforts to “uphold peace and stability,” a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson said. To show support for the regime, Beijing opened a liaison office in Naypyidaw, the capital — a step other powerful nations have been reluctant to take because of the city’s isolation and its association with the former ruling junta.” newyorkpost.com

That China’s 17th Karmapa refuses to speak out against this crime against humanity in deference to his Chinese benefactors speaks volumes.
