Thank you, to Constance Cumbey for her research that connected
the dots between the Dominionist Christians and their odd-alliance
with new-age, forged in 1987, at the Gold Lake Ranch near Boulder,
Colorado, presided over by Barbara Marx Hubbard with Paul Temple
of the “Family,” the C-Street Christians, that Jeff Sharlet exposed.6 This
meeting in Colorado was to accomplish the “merging and blending and
coming together,” to do the “one work.”7 It was still theoretical in 1987.

Thirty years later, it is a dangerous reality that I experienced for myself, in
Crestone, Colorado.

Lamaism: Chris Chandler acknowledges the work of Dialogue Ireland

Acknowledgement

“A big thanks to Dialogue Ireland,3  and its moderator, Mike Garde, one of the few anti-cult experts who “got” what I was saying about Tibetan Buddhism: that it was Lamaism not Buddhism; a Tantric cult whose institutional exploitation, including sexual exploitation of its students, is justified by the Tantric teachings, themselves, and not the result of a few rogue lamas, here and there; the so-called “exception rule.”
A special thanks to Lily Chao, and her Taiwanese True Enlightenment
Foundation 4 whom I was introduced to through Mike Garde. Through her
foundation’s exhaustive and scholarly work, studying the original teachings
of Tsongkhapa of the Dalai Lama’s Gelugpa lineage, and understanding that
these teachings were not Mahayana Buddhism but a sexually abusive distortion
of the historical Buddha’s principles, her group has been fearlessly trying
to warn the Taiwanese people about the sexual “couples-bliss practices”
of these Tibetan lamas in Taiwan, a place where the lamas have been actively
building monasteries and centers, attracting many Taiwanese students over
the last decades.”

4 “True Enlightenment Foundation” is a Taiwanese Buddhist organization concerned about
the corruption of Buddhism by the Tibetan Lamas’ Tantric Lamaism, See: http://foundation.enlighten.org.tw/trueheart_en/14

 

 

It is great to see that Chris Chandler’s book, “Enthralled,” on The Guru Cult of Tibetan Buddhism has been published. She kindly acknowledges the role Mike Garde of Dialogue Ireland and Lily Chao of the Taiwanese, True Enlightenment Foundation in writing the book.

This book needs to be read widely……….

The Guru Cult of Tibetan Buddhism

Authored by Christine A. Chandler, M.A., C.A.G.S.
Edition: 1

Here we in Dialogue Ireland have for many years now been aware of the inside track of Lamaism through the writings of Christine A. Chandler. We were made aware of how extremely dangerous this Lamaism project is for the rational western mind. Chris has here put together the total package, not one Lama who like Sogyal is abusing women but rather we have been shown how this about a whole system. This is a systematic unpacking of the future plans of the Lama Religion with it is consort sex and unreformed Hinduism of a Tantric nature. Continue reading

Full statement exposing Sogyal by present and former members of Rigpa on a number of abuse fronts

https://dialogueireland.wordpress.com/2017/07/24/20477/

Why the western psychology profession,and other academic professionals, who have been covering up for a sexually abusive lama, like lama Sogyal must be called to account:

Every sexually abusive situation, system and cult religion, requires the perpetrators, the deniers, and the enablers. No professional group has been more enabling of these Tibetan lamas and Lama Sogyal than the celebrity psychologists, like Daniel Goleman and Joseph Goldstein, and the numerous other Tantric psychologists, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and others in human services, along with the western Tibetan Buddhist teachers, who have been sitting on the boards with Sogyal Rinpoche, whether at the Dalai Lama’s Mind and Life Institute, or at the Tibet House of the Dalai Lama or on Lama Sogyal’s board, at his new Tendzin Gyatso Institute”; blessed and approved of by the Dalai Lama and named after His Holiness, to train more Tibetan lamas in our midst, in the heartland of the United States, to accomplish the final dumbing down of young westerners.

Sogyal Lakar,

http://openboeddhisme.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Letter-to-Sogyal-Lakar-14-06-2017-.pdf

The Rigpa Sangha is in crisis. Long – simmering issues with your behaviour can no longer be ignored or denied.

 

As long time committed and devoted students we feel compelled to share our

deep concern regarding your violent and abusive behaviour. Your actions have hurt us

individually, harmed our fellow sisters and brothers within Rigpa the organization, and by extension Buddhism in the West.

 

We write to you following the advice of the Dalai Lama, in which he has said that students of Tibetan Buddhist lamas are obliged to communicate their concerns about their teacher:

If one presents the teachings clearly, others benefit. But if someone is supposed to propagate the Dharma and their behaviour is harmful, it is our responsibility to criticize this with a good motivation. This is constructive criticism, and you do not need to feel uncomfortable doing it. In “The Twenty Verses on the Bodhisattvas’ Vows,” it says that there is no fault in whatever action you engage in with pure motivation. Buddhist teachers who abuse sex, power, money, alcohol, or drugs, and who, when faced with legitimate complaints from their own students, do not correct their behaviour, should be criticized openly and by name. This may embarrass them and cause them to regret and stop their abusive behaviour. Exposing the negative allows space for the positive side to increase. When publicizing such misconduct, it should be made clear that such teachers have disregarded the Buddha’s advice. However, when making public the ethical misconduct of a Buddhist teacher, it is only fair to mention their good qualities as well.

 

The Dalai Lama, Dharamsala, India March 1993

This letter is our request to you to stop your unethical and immoral behaviour. Your public face is one of wisdom, kindness, humour, warmth and compassion, but your private behaviour, the way you conduct yourself behind the scenes, is deeply disturbing and unsettling. A number of us have raised with you privately, our concerns about your behaviour in recent years, but you have not changed.

Those of us who write to you today have firsthand experience of your abusive behaviours, as well as the massive efforts not to allow others to know about them. Our concerns are deepened with the organizational culture you have created around you that maintains absolute secrecy of your actions, which is in sharp contrast with your stated directive of openness and transparency within the Sangha. Our wish is to break this veil of secrecy, deception, and deceit. We can no longer remain silent.

Our deep and heartfelt hope is that this collective note might yield a more tangible result than any of our individual discussions with you have. We hope that long lasting and sincere changes may come about rather than shortlived pledges.

Our primary concerns are:

 

  1. Your physical, emotional and psychological abuse of students.
  2. Your sexual abuse of students.
  3. Your lavish, gluttonous, and sybaritic lifestyle.
  4. Your actions have tainted our appreciation for the practice of the Dharma.
