བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེར་བུད་མེད་གཞན་ཞིག་གིས་ཉེས་འཛུགས་བྱས་འདུག

བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ།

 

མི་སུ་ཞིག་བཙན་གཡེམ་གྱིས་འཁྲིག་སྤྱོད་བྱེད་མཁན་དེ་ཚོ། ཆོས་ཉམས་ལེན་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། དེ་ཚོའི་གནས་ཚུལ་གསར་འགོད་པའི་བརྒྱུད་ནས་མི་མང་ལ་གསལ་པོ་ཁྱབ་བསྒྲགས་བྱེད་བཅུག་དགོས་རེད། སངས་རྒྱས་ཀྱི་ཆོས་དེ་ལོག་པ་བེད་སྤྱོད་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་རེད། དེ་ཚོའི་གདོང་པ་གསར་འགྱུར་དང་དྲ་ཐོག་ལ་མངོན་པ་བྱེད་དགོས་རེད།

དེ་ཡང་ཟླ་༥ པའི་ཚེས་༣ ཉིན་རྒྱ་གར་བུད་མེད་གཅིག་གིས་ལྡི་ལི་ནས་དྷ་སའི་ཉེ་འགྲམ་གྱི་གྷ་གྷལ་བར་གནམ་གྲུའི་ནང་ཡོང་སྐབས། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཁོང་ལ་ཚུལ་མིན་གྱི་རེག་ཐུག་བྱས་སོང་ཞེས་ཉེན་རྟོག་པར་སྙན་སེང་ཞུས་ཡོད་སྐོར་དང་། སྐབས་དེར་ཉེན་རྟོག་པས་ཁོང་འཇུ་བཟུང་བྱས་ཡོད་པའི་གནས་ཚུལ་རྒྱ་གར་གྱི་བརྒྱུད་ལམ་ཁག་ཏུ་སྤེལ་ཡོད་པ་རེད། སྤྱི་ཚོགས་དྲ་ལམ་ཁག་ཏུ་ཁོང་གིས་གཏའ་དངུལ་སྤྲད་ནས་ཉེན་རྟོག་པས་གློད་གྲོལ་བཏང་ཡོད་ཁར། གནད་དོན་ལ་མུ་མཐུད་ནས་ཞིབ་འཇུག་བྱེད་བཞིན་ཡོད་སྐོར་གྱི་གནས་ཚུལ་ཁྱབ་བཞིན་ཡོད་པ་རེད།

ཡི་གེའི་འདྲ་བཤུས། ཆེ་རུ་གཏོང་ན། འདི་གནོན།

ལྷན་རྒྱས་ཚང་མ་ལ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས། བདག་ཛ་ཀི་ངོས་ནས་ལྷན་རྒྱས་ཡོངས་ལ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས་ཞུས་ཀྱི་ཡིན། ངའི་བོད་པའི་མིང་ལ་ཀུན་བཟང་ཟེར་གྱི་ཡོད། ངའི་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་འདི་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་གནད་དོན་སྐོར་བཟོ་བཞིན་ཡོད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། བདག་ལ་ཕེ་སེ་བུཀ་(ངོ་དེབ་)ཁ་བྱང་མེད། དེར་ཁྱེད་རྣམས་ལ་གནད་དོན་འདིའི་སྐོར་ཞུས་པར་ཐབས་ལམ་འདི་མཐོང་བྱུང་། ངའི་ཡུ་ཊུབ་(youtube) གཞན་གྱི་རྗེས་འཇུག་པ་རྣམས་ལ་དགོང་སེལ་ཞུས་ཀྱི་ཡིན། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། ཟླ་འགའ་ཤས་སྔོན་དུ་ངའི་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་ཞིག་གཡར་ཡོད་པས། དང་པོ་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་དེ་ཁྱབ་སྤེལ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན། དེ་ལྟར་བྱེད་དགོས་པའི་རྒྱུ་མཚན་དེ་ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པས་མཁྱེན་གྱི་ཡོད་པའི་རེ་བ་ཡོད། ངས་གནས་ཚུལ་འཐུང་འཐུང་ཞུ་ཐབས་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན། ཁྱོད་རྣམ་པས་དགོངས་པ་གནང་རོགས་གནང་། མང་པོ་ཞུས་ཀྱི་མིན། མང་པོ་ཞུས་ན་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་དེ་རིང་པོ་ཆགས་ཀྱི་རེད། དེར་གནད་དོན་གཙོ་བོ་སྐད་ཆ་ཞུས་ཆོག་པ་གྱིས།ངས་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་འདི་བཟོས་དགོས་པའི་རྒྱུ་མཚན་དེ། ལོ་བཅུ་སྔོན་དུ་ང་རྡ་སར་ཨ་ནེ་ཡིན་སྐབས་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་སེམས་གནག་བྱེད་པ་རེད། དེ་དུས་ག་རེད་བྱུང་བའི་སྐོར་ད་ལྟ་གསལ་པོ་ཞུས་ཀྱི་མེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། བརྙན་འཕྲིན་དེ་རིང་པོ་ཆགས་ཀྱི་རེད། དེ་བཞིན་གནད་དོན་དེ་ཞེ་དྲགས་ཀྱི་སྡུག་བསྔལ་ཅན་གྱི་གནད་དོན་ཡོད་རེད། ཡིན་ཡང་། ཁོང་གིས་ང་ལ་གང་བྱས་པའི་སྐོར་ཤེས་འདོད་ཡོད་ན། བདག་གིས་ཀང་རྭ་བརྩོན་ཁང་དུ་གནད་དོན་དེའི་སྐོར་སྤྲོད་ཡོད་པའི་གསལ་བསྒྲགས་ཀློག་ཆོག་རེད། དེའི་སྐོར་ཤོག་གྲངས་བཞི་ཡོད་པ་དང་། ངས་ཀྱང་ཁྱབ་སྤེལ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན། ཁོང་གིས་ང་ལ་ལག་པ་འཆང་བ་དང་། ངའི་གོས་ཕུད་པའི་ཐབས་ཤེས་བྱས་པ་སོགས་ཀྱི་གནད་དོན་ཡོད། གནད་དོན་རིང་པོ་ཡོད་རེད། ཤོག་གྲངས་བཞི་ཡོད་རེད། ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པ་གཟིགས་རོགས་གནང་།དེ་ནས་དེ་རྗེས། ངས་གསལ་བསྒྲགས་འདི་ཁྱབ་སྤེལ་བྱས་རྗེས། འདི་བྱེད་པར་ང་ལ་ཡུན་རིང་པོ་ཞེ་པོ་གོར་བ་དེ། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ལོ་འགའ་ཤས་རིང་མི་མང་ཚོས་ང་ལ་འདིས་གང་ཡང་མ་འབྱུང་བའི་ཡིད་ཆེས་སྟེར་ཐབས་བྱས། དེར་མ་ཟད། ང་ལ་ཕུར་མཉེ་གཏོང་བ་དེ་སྙིང་རྗེ་ལ་འདས་པ་ཞིག་འབྱུང་། དེ་ནས་དེ་དག་ཐམས་ཅད་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཚོད་དཔག་བྱེད་ཐུབ། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཚོད་དཔག་བྱེད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་ངས་ཤེས། དེར་མ་ཟད་ང་རང་ནང་པ་སངས་རྒྱས་པའི་ཨ་ནེ་ཞིག་ཡིན་ཞིང་། དེ་ནས་འདི་ནི་ཞེ་པོ་བློ་ཕམ་ཅན་གྱི་གནས་སྟངས་ཆགས་པ་རེད། དེ་ནས་འཁྲིག་སྤྱོད་ཀྱི་གནོད་འཚེ་རེ་རེ་བྱས་རྗེས། ང་རང་སོ་སོ་ནག་ཉེས་ཅན་གྱི་འཚོར་བ་བྱུང་། གཅིག་ནི་མགོ་རྙོག་བྱུང་། གཅིག་ནི་སོ་སོས་སྐྱོན་བརྗོད་བྱེད། ངས་གང་བྱས་ནས་བཤད་པ་ཡིན་ནམ། ངས་ཁོང་ལ་ང་འགྲམ་དུ་ཡོང་ཆོག་པ་གང་ཡིན་ནམ། ངས་ཁོང་ལ་དེ་བཞིན་དུ་ང་ལ་ལག་པ་ཐུག་རེག་སོགས་བྱེད་བཅུག་པ་གང་ཡིན་ནམ།

དེ་ནས། འདི་འདྲ་བྱུང་ནས་ལོ་མང་པོ་སོང་ཚར་བ་རེད། དེ་ནས་འདི་འཆར་ཅན་དུ་འགྱུར། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ཚུལ་མིན་དེ་བྱས་རྗེས་ཁྱེད་ལ་ལོ་མང་པོ་དགོས་རེད། དུས་ཡུན་གང་འཚམས་སུ་ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་མི་ཚེ་གང་མཚམས་དགོས་རེད། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པས། འགོ་འཛུགས་པར། ད་དུང་འདི་སྤྱིར་བཏང་གི་བསམ་བློ་གཏོང་ཐུབ་པར། ཡིན་ནའང་ང་ལ་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་བྱེད་མཁན་མི་འགའ་ཤས་ཡོད་པས་དེ་ཚོས་གསལ་བསྒྲགས་དེ་བྱེད་པར་ལམ་སྟོན་བྱས་པ་དང་དེ་ནས་ངས་བྱས་ཡིན། ང་ལ་བདེན་དཔང་དུ་ཚད་ལྡན་ཤོག་བུ་གཉིས་རག་བྱུང་། གཅིག་དེ་ངས་ཏཱ་ལའི་བླ་མའི་ཡིག་ཚང་དུ་བཏང་བ་ཡིན། དེ་ནས་གཅིག་དེ་FPMT ལས་ཁུངས་སུ་བཏང་བ་ཡིན། དེ་ནས་ཁྱེད་ལ་ངས་གང་བཤད་དགོས་རེད། གང་ཡང་བྱུང་མ་སོང་། ངས་བཤད་དོན་དེ་ནི་ཏཱ་ལའི་བླ་མའི་ཡིག་ཚང་དུ་ང་དང་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་བར་གྱི་ཚོགས་འདུ་ཅིག་གྲ་སྒྲིགས་བྱས་པ་དང་། དེ་ཁོང་གིས་ཟློག་ཐབས་བྱས། ཁོང་གིས་ཐབས་ཤེས་བཏང་། བྲག་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ཚོགས་འདུ་དེ་མ་འཛོམས་པའི་ཐབས་ཤེས་མང་པོ་བྱས་པ་དང་། དེ་ནས་ཁོ་ཚོས་ཚོགས་འདུ་ཅིག་གྲ་སྒྲིགས་བྱས། ཚོགས་འདུ་དེ་ངས་སྒྲ་ཐོ་བཀོད་ཐབས་བྱས་པ་ཡིན། ཁོ་ཚོས་ང་ལ་དེ་འདྲ་བྱེད་བཅུག་མ་སོང་། དེ་འདྲ་སོང་ཙང་ཉེན་མེད་ཀྱི་ཆེད་ངས་ཀློག་སད་དགོས་བྱུང་། ང་ལ་ཚོགས་འདུ་འདིའི་སྒྲ་ཐོ་གང་ཡང་མེད། གློ་བུར་དུ། ཚོགས་འདུ་སྐབས་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ང་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས། ང་ལ་ཁོང་གིས་ཚུལ་མིན་དེ་འདྲ་གང་བྱས་པ་དེ་སྙིང་རྗེས་ལས་འདས་པའི་ལས་ཀ་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད་བྱུང་། ད་ནས་བཟུང་ཁོང་གིས་དེ་འདྲ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་མེད་ཅེས་བཤད་བྱུང་། ཁོང་ནུབ་ཕྱོགས་ཀྱི་བུད་མེད་ཚོའི་འགྲམ་དུ་སྤྱོད་ལམ་གང་འདྲ་བྱེད་དགོས་པའི་སྐོར་ཟབ་ཟབ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན་བཤད། གནས་ཚུལ་འདི་ཐམས་ཅད་ཁྱེད་རང་ཚོས་ཤེས། ཆ་ཡང་གཏོང་བ་དེ་དག་རྣམས་དང་ཚུལ་དེ་རྣམས་ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པས་ཤེས།

དེ་ནས་ངས་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས་པ་དེ་ངོས་ལེན་བྱས་ཡིན། དེ་ནས་ང་ཉེན་རྟོག་པར་ཡོད་སར་འགྲོ་མེད། སྒྲིགས་པ་བྱེད། དེ་ནས་དེ་རྗེས་FPMT ལྟེ་ནས་འགའ་ཤས་ཀྱིས་བཤད་པ་དེ་ལ། བྲག་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཚོགས་འདུ་བསྐོང་བ་དེ་ནི་ང་རང་གི་ཁོང་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས་པའི་དོན་དུ་ཚོགས་པ་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད། དེ་ནས་དེ་ལ་ང་ངུ་འབོད་བྱེད་ནས་ཁོང་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས་བཅུག་པ་རེད། ངས་ཡིད་ཆེས་བྱེད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་མི་འདུག འདི་དངོས་གནས་སྨྱོན་ལས་རེད། དེ་རྫུན་མ་རེད། དེ་ནས་དེའི་དོན་ནི་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་མགོ་རྟིང་སློག་མཁན་གཙོ་བོ་རེད། དེ་ཡང་མ་ཟད་ཁོང་རྫུན་ཆེན་བཤད་མཁན་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ངས་ཁོང་ལ་ནམ་ཡང་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས་མ་མྱོང་། ངས་ཁོང་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུ་དགོས་པའི་རྒྱུ་མཚན་གང་ཡང་མེད་པ་དང་། དགོངས་སེལ་ཁོང་གིས་ཁོང་གི་མི་ཚེ་ནང་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་བྱས་ཡུལ་བུད་མེད་ཐམས་ཅད་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུ་དགོས་མཁན་ཞིག་རེད། དེ་ནས་དེ་༸རྒྱལ་བ་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ཚོགས་འདུ་རེད། ཁོང་གིས་དགོངས་སེལ་ཞུས་ཤིང་དེའི་སྐོར་ཁོང་གི་རྫུན་བཤད་སོང་། མཐར་ཁོ་ཚོས་གང་ཡང་བྱས་མ་སོང་། རེད་བ། དེ་ནས་FPMT ལྟེ་གནས་ནས་ཡང་དེ་གང་རང་གང་ཡང་བྱས་མ་སོང་། དངོས་དོན་དུ་ངའི་དོན་དག་ཁོ་ཚོའི་གང་ཡང་བྱས་མ་སོང་། དཔེར་ན། ཨ་ལེ། ཁོང་སྒྲིགས་བསྡད་བཞག ཁོང་གིས་ཁྱེད་ལ་སྙིང་རྗེ་ལས་འདས་པའི་ཕུར་ཉེས་གཏོང་བཞིན་འདུག དེ་ནས་ད་ག་རེད། ཁོ་ཚོ་སྐད་ད་ག་རང་དུ་མགོ་སྐོར་ནས་བསྡད།

ངས་མི་མང་པོ་ལ་འབྲེལ་བ་བྱེད་ཐབས་བྱས་པ་ཡིན། འགའ་ཤས་ཀྱི་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་གནང་སོང་། ཡིན་ནའང་སྡེ་མཚན་ཁག་གིས་དེའི་སྐོར་གང་ཡང་བྱས་མ་སོང་། རྗེས་ལ་ང་གཅིག་པོ་མ་རེད། སྔར་བུ་མོ་མང་པོ། བུད་མེད་སྐྱ་བོ། ཨ་ནེ། ནུབ་ཕྱོགས་པ། བོད་ཀྱི་བུ་མོ། རྒྱ་གར་གྱི་བུ་མོ་ལ་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཚུལ་མིན་གྱི་རེག་ཐུག་བྱས་ཡོད། འདི་ཡང་ནས་ཡང་དུ་ང་ཚོས་ཇི་ལྟར་འགྲེལ་བརྗོད་བྱེད་དགོས་ཀྱི་སྐོར་ང་རང་མི་ཤེས། ངའི་གནས་སྟངས་སྐབས། ངས་འདི་བཤད་ནས་ལོ་བཅུ་ལས་མང་བ་སོང་ཚར་བ་རེད། ལོ་བཅུ་ལས་མང་བ། འཚོ་བ་མང་པོ་གཏོར་བཤིག་བཏང་། འདིས་ཆོས་ལ་ཡིད་ཆེས་དང་དད་པ་བྱེད་མཁན་མང་པོའི་དད་པར་ཚབས་ཆེན་གྱི་ཐོག་ནས་གནོད་ཡོད། མི་མང་པོའི་ཆོས་ཀྱི་འཚོ་བ་དེ་ལ་གནོད་སྐྱོན་ཤུགས་ཆེན་པོ་བྱུང་ཡོད་པ་དང་། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་བྱས་པའི་གནོད་ཡུལ་མི་མང་པོ་དེ་དག་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་ད་ལྟ་བར་དུ་སེམས་ནད་བཤད་ཐུབ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། དེ་ནས་ངས་ལྷག་པར་དུ་ནུབ་ཕྱོགས་པའི་ཨ་ནེ་ལོ་ཆུང་བ་ཞིག་གི་སྐོར་བཤད་བཞིན་ཡོད། ལོ་ཆུང་ཨ་ནེ་དེ་ངས་ཤེས་ཤིང་མི་གཞན་གྱི་ཡང་གསལ་པོར་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་རེད། ཡིན་ནའང་ད་ལྟ་བར་དུ་ཁྱབ་སྤེལ་བྱེད་པའི་བློ་སྟོབས་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད།

དེ་ནས་འདི་ཚོ་ཐམས་ཅད་བྱུང་རྗེས། ངས་བཤད་པས་གནས་སྟངས་འདི་སྡུག་ཏུ་སོང་བ་རེད། དེ་ནས་ང་མི་སྡུག་ཅག་ཞིག་དུ་འགྱུ་བ་རེད། ཨ་ཡིན་ནམ། ངས་བཤད་འོང་དུས། ངས་བཤད་བཞིན་པའི་སྐབས་ང་ལ་ང་རང་སྨྱོན་པ་ཞིག་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད་བྱུང་། ང་ཚད་ལས་བརྒལ་ཏེ་སྨྱོ་བཞིན་འདུག་པ་དང་། དོ་སྣང་ཚུར་འདུ་བའི་ཆེད་བཤད་པ་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད། ང་ལ་བསམ་ཞིབ་ཀྱི་ཐོག་ནས་ཚུར་གཟིགས་རོགས་གནང་། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་པར་མཐོང་མྱོང་ངམ། ཁོས་མི་དེ་ཚུར་གང་བྱས་ནས་འདུ་དགོས་སམ། དེ་ལྟ་བུ་སྐྱེས་པ་ཞིག་གི་དམིགས་གཏད། ད་དངོས་གནས་ཤོག མི་མང་པོས་ཁོ་ལ་རྒྱབ་རྟེན་བྱས་ཤིང་ད་ལྟའང་ཁོ་ཚོས་ཁོ་ལ་སྲུང་སྐྱོབ་བྱེད་བཞིན་འདུག འདི་ཚོ་ཚང་མ་སྨྱོན་པ་རེད། ཡིན་ནའང་ངས་ཧ་གོ་བ་དེ་བཤད་འདོད་ཡོད། ལྷག་པར་ཁོ་རང་གིས་རབ་ཏུ་བྱུང་བའི་གྲྭ་བ་ཚོ་དང་ཨ་ནེ་དེ་དག་གི་སྐོར་ངས་གོ་བཙུགས་ཀྱི་ཡོད། དེ་ནས་མི་མང་ཚོ་ལ་ཞུ་ཡར་དེ་ཁོ་ཚོར་དགོངས་ཡང་གནང་རོགས་གནང་ཞིང་མཁྱེན་པ་གནང་རོགས་གནང་ཞེས་ཞུ། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པའི་མི་ཚེ་ཐམས་ཅད་རྫུན་མ་ཡིན་པ་ཚོད་དཔག་བྱེད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་ཡོད་མ་རེད། མ་རེད་པས། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ལས་རབ་ཏུ་བྱུང་མཁན་རྣམས་ཀྱི་སྐོར་ཚོད་དཔག་ཞིག་བྱེད་རོགས་གནང་དང་། ཚོད་དཔག་བྱེད་ན། ནང་པ་སངས་རྒྱས་པའི་ལམ་ལུགས་ནང་རབ་བྱུང་གི་སྡོམ་པ་ཐོབ་པར། དགོན་པའི་བསླབ་ཁྲིམས་ནང་། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་འདི་ཚོ་སྡོམ་གཙང་ཅན་གྱི་རབ་བྱུང་བ་རྣམ་པར་དག་པ་ཞིག་ལས་ཐོབ་དགོས་པ་ནི་ཞེ་པོ་གལ་ཆེན་པོ་རེད། དཔེར་ན་ཁྱེད་རབ་ཏུ་བྱུང་ཞིང་དེ་ནས་ལོ་འགའ་རྗེས། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་གཅིག་བྱས་ན་དེ། གཅིག་བྱས་ན། ཁྱེད་སྡོམ་པ་ཡང་མ་ཐོབ་པ་འདྲ་བོ་ཆ་བཞག་ན། ཁྱེད་གྲྭ་བ་རབ་ཏུ་བྱུང་བ་དང་ཨ་ནེ་གང་རུང་མ་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ཁྱེད་ལ་ཐོབ་པའི་སྡོམ་པ་དེ་སྡོམ་གཙང་དགེ་སློང་ཞིག་ལས་ཐོབ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། (དགེ་སློང་རྣམ་དག) གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱེད་ཆོས་ལ་དད་པ་བྱེད་མཁན་ཞིག་མ་ཡིན་ན། ཡང་ནང་པ་སངས་རྒྱས་པའི་གྲྭ་བ་དང་ཨ་ནེ་མ་ཡིན་ན་དེ་ངས་མི་ཤེས། ངས་མི་ཤེས། ཞེ་སྣང་ཚ་ཞིང་སེམས་གཅོང་ཅན་གང་འདྲ་ཞིག་ཡིན་པ་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཤེས་ཐུབ། ཡིན་ནའང་འདི་སོ་ཐར་གྱི་སྡོམ་པའི་སྐབས་སུ་གཅིག་པོ་མ་རེད། ཁོ་རང་བརྒྱུད་ནས་བྱང་སེམས་ཀྱི་སྡོམ་པ་དང་གསང་སྔགས་ཀྱི་སྡོམ་པ་ལེན་མཁན་ཚོ་ཡང་རེད། ཁོ་ཚོའི་དངོས་ཡོད་དེ་གདོང་ལེན་བྱེད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་མ་རེད། འདི་ཞེ་པོ་ཟུག་རྔུ་དྲག་པོ་ཅན་རེད། དེ་ནས་གལ་སྲིད་ཁོ་ཚོའི་ཁོ་ལ་སྲུང་སྐྱོབ་བྱེད་ཐབས་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་ན་ཁོ་ཚོ་ལ་ཆག་ཡང་གཏོང་ཤོག བདེན་པ་མཐོང་ན་ཞེ་པོ་གནོད་འཚེ་ཅན་རེད།

དེ་ནས་ད་ལྟའང་། རྐྱེན་དབང་དེའི་རྗེས། FPMT ལྟེ་གནས་ཀྱིས་བཤད་ཚུལ་ལྟར་ཁོ་ཚོས་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ལྟ་ཚུལ་ངོས་ལེན་བྱས་ཚུལ་ངས་གོ་འབྱུང་། དེ་ཁོང་གནམ་གྲུ་དེ་ནང་དུ་ཡོད་པའི་བུ་མོ་ཕྱོགས་ལ་ལྟ་ནས་འཛུམ་བག་གི་རྣམ་འགྱུར་ཙམ་སྟོན་པ་དང་དེ་ནས་ཁོང་འཛུམ་བག་གི་རྣམ་འགྱུར་སྟོན་པས་མོ་རང་བློ་ཕམ་པོ་འབྱུང་། ལྟས་ད། ང་ཚོ་གང་འདྲ་ལྐུག་པ་འདྲ་བོ་འདུག་བསམ་བློ་གཏོང་དང་། གང་འདྲ་ལྐུག་པ། དངོས་གནས། འཛམ་གླིང་ནང་གི་མི་མང་ཚོ་ལྐུག་པ་ཡིན་ཚུལ་ཇི་ལྟར་བསམ་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་ཡོད་དམ། དེ་ནས་བུད་མེད་དེ་ལ་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་བྱས་འབྱུང་བ་དང་། དེ་ཚོས་ག་ཚོད་བར་དུ་འདི་གང་ལ་བཟོད་སྲན་བྱེད་ཐུབ་པའི་སྐོར་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་གང་དྲན་གྱི་འདུག ཁོང་སྔ་མ་ནས་ལོ་དྲུག་ཅུ་རེ་ལྔར་གྱི་རྒན་གོག་རེད་ཚར་བ་རེད། ཁོང་གི་མི་ཚེ་ནང་བུད་མེད་ག་ཚོད་ཙམ་ཚུལ་མི་བྱས་པ་ཁྱེད་ལ་བསམ་འཆར་གང་རུང་ཡོད་དམ། ཁོང་གིས་འདི་ལ་སྣང་མེད་གཏོང་བཞིན་འདུག གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ཁོང་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཞིག་རེད། དེ་དྲང་པོ་མ་རེད། དེ་ཡིན་ཙང་གནམ་གྲུ་ནང་བུ་མོ་དེ་ལ་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་བྱས་པ་རེད་ཅེས་ཙམ་ཞུ་འདོད་བྱུང་། ཐུག་རྗེ་ཆེ། ཁོང་ལ་སྙན་སེང་ཞུས་པས་ཐུག་རྗེ་ཆེ་ཞུས། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ང་རང་ཚོ་མང་པོ་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་བྱེད་མ་ཐུབ་པ་དང་མ་བྱས་པ་དེ་བྱེད་ཐུབ་སོང་། བློ་སྟོབས་སྤེལ་མི་དགོས་པར་ཙམ་གྱི་བྱས། ཐུགས་རྗེ་ཆེ། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། ཁྱེད་རང་ནང་པ་སངས་རྒྱས་པ་ཞིག་མ་རེད། ཁྱེད་རང་ནུབ་ཕྱོགས་པ་མ་རེད། དེ་ནས་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཁོང་ལ་འདི་སྔོན་ནམ་ཡང་མཐོང་མ་བྱུང་། དེ་ཡིན་ཙང་འདི་འདྲ་བྱེད་དགོས་པས་རྒྱུ་མཚན་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། ཐུགས་རྗེ་ཆེ། ཁྱེད་ལ་གནས་སྟངས་གང་བྱུང་བ་དེར་ང་རང་བློ་ཕམ་པོ་བྱུང་། ཁྱེད་ལ་གནས་སྟངས་དེ་འདྲ་འབྱུང་བ་ངས་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད། དེ་ནས་གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱེད་ལ་ཁྲིམས་ཁང་དུ་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་དང་འབྲེལ་བའི་གནད་དོན་ཐོག་ལ་རོགས་པ་གང་དགོས་ང་ལ་འབྲེལ་བ་གནང་རོགས། ང་ལ་ཡོད་པའི་གནས་ཚུལ་ཐམས་ཅད་ཁྱེད་ལ་ངས་བསྐུར་ཆོག ང་ད་ལྟ་རྒྱ་གར་ནང་མེད། ཡིན་ནའང་གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱེད་ལ་དགོས་ན་གྲ་སྒྲིགས་བྱེད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་ཡོད། ངས་ཀང་རྭ་ཉེན་རྟོག་པ་ཚོར་ཡང་བཤད་ཀྱི་ཡིན། རྩོམ་བྲིས་འདི་བྲིས་མཁན་གསར་འགོད་པ་ལྷན་དུ་འབྲེལ་བ་བྱེད་ཐབས་བྱེད་བཞིན་པ་ཡིན། དེ་བཞིན་གྷ་གལ་ཉེན་རྟོག་པ་དང་ཀང་རྭའི་ཉེན་རྟོག་པའི་ལྷན་དུ། ཡིན་ནའང་འབྲེལ་བ་བྱེད་ཐུབ་མ་བྱུང་། ཡིན་ནའང་གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱེད་ལ་དགོས་ན་བཅའ་ཁྲིམས་དགོངས་དོན་གྱི་ཁྱབ་བསྒྲགས་དེའི་འདྲ་བཤུས་འདིར་ཡོད། གལ་སྲིད་འདི་དག་གི་ཐོག་ནས་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་དང་འབྲེལ་བའི་གནད་དོན་ཐོག་ལ་རྒྱབ་སྐྱོར་གང་བྱེད་དགོས་ན། ངས་དེའི་ཆེད་དུ་གང་དགོས་པ་དེ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན།

དེ་ནས་ངས་བུད་མེད་གཞན་དག་ལ་བཤད་འདོད་བྱུང་། རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ནས་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་བྱུང་བའི་བུད་མེད་དེ་དག་རྣམས་ལ། ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པ་ལ་ཁོང་གི་ཚུལ་མིན་ཐུག་རེག་དང་སེམས་གནག་བྱས་པ་ངས་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད། དེ་བཞིན་དེ་དག་རྣམས་ངས་ཧ་གོ་ཡི་ཡོད་པ་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཡང་ཤེས། ཁྱེད་རང་ཚོས་བརྙན་འཕྲིན་འདི་ལྟ་བཞིན་པ་ངས་ཤེས། དེ་ནས་ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པ་ཚོ་ལ་སེམས་གནག་བྱས་ཡོད་པ་ངས་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད། དེ་ནས་ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་གང་ཡང་བཤད་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཤེས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པས། ངས་ད་སུས་སྐོར་ལ་བཤད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པའི་སྐོར། ངས་ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པའི་གསང་རྒྱུ་ལ་དད་གུས་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན། ཐམས་ཅད་ཀྱིས་ཁྱེད་རྣམས་གསང་རྒྱུ་ལོ་བཅུ་རིང་སྲུང་སྐྱོབ་བྱས་ཡོད། ད་དུང་འདི་ལས་ཀྱང་མང་བ། ད་ལྟ་དུས་ཚོད་འདི་ནི་བཤད་རྒྱུ་རེད། ལྟས་ད། ད་ལྟ་ཁོང་ཡོངས་གྲགས་སུ་ཁྱབ་སོང་། ཁྱེད་རྣམ་པ་ཞེ་དྲགས་ཉེས་ཅན་བསམ་དགོས་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། ཁྱེད་རྣམས་ཞེ་དྲགས་ངོ་ཚ་དགོས་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། མ་རེད་པས། བཤད་ཤོག གཅིག་བྱེད་དགོས་རེད། བརྙན་འཕྲིན་བཟོ་ཤོག གསར་བསྒྲགས་བྱེད། ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་ཆོས་ཚོགས་སུ་འགྲོ། བླ་མ་བཟོད་པ་ལ་ཡི་གེ་བྲིས། དྲ་ཐོག་ཏུ་གོ་བཙུགས། དགའ་ལྡན་ཕོ་བྲང་དུ་ཡིག་གེ་གཏོང། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་ཚོགས་པར་སླེབ་ན་ང་རྒོལ་བྱེད། བཀག་སྡོམ་བྱེད། ཆོས་ཚོགས་སུ་འགྲོ་བཅུག གལ་སྲིད་ཁོང་དེ་ལ་ཡོད་ན་གཅིག་བྱེད་དགོས། ངོ་ཚ་དགོས་རྒྱུ་ཡོད་མ་རེད། བདེན་པ་བཤད་ན་བསྟན་པ་གནོད་སྐྱོན་ཤོར་གྱི་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད་དགོས་མ་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་བསྟན་ན་རྒྱུན་དུ་དྲང་བདེན་དགོས་རེད། དེ་འདྲ་སོང་ཙང་དེ་ལ་གལ་སྲིད་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་བདེན་པ་བཤད་ན་བསྟན་པ་ལ་གནོད་པ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། བདེན་པ་བཤད། གལ་སྲིད་དེ་ལོ་བཅོ་ལྔ་སྔོན་གྱི་ཡིན་ནའང་གཅིག་བྱེད་དགོས་རེད། དེ་ནས་ང་ལྟ་བུ་ལ་ཆ་བཞག་ན་ལོ་བཅུ་སྔོན་གྱི་རེད། དེ་ལ་ཁྱད་པར་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། འདི་ལ་རྗེས་ལུས་ཞེ་དྲགས་ཤོར་ཡོད་མ་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ཁོང་གིས་ཁྱེད་ལ་ཚུལ་མིན་སེམས་གནག་བྱས་པ་དེ་ཚོ་ད་དུང་འགྲོ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། མ་རེད་པས། དེ་ནས་འདི་བྱེད། གཅིག་བྱེད་དགོས་རེད། དེ་ནས་FPMT ལ་ངས་འགའ་ཤས་ཞུ་འདོད་བྱུང་། ད་ལྟ་ཁྱེད་རྣམས་གང་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན་ནམ། ད་ལྟ་ཁྱེད་རྣམས་གང་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡིན་ནམ། ཁྱེད་རྣམས་པས་ཁོང་ལ་འདི་སྐབས་སུ་ད་ལྟ་ཡང་བསྐྱར་དུ་སྣང་མེད་དུ་གཏོང་གི་ཡིན་པས། གནོད་འཚེ་ཕོག་ཡུལ་ག་ཚོད་ཡོད་དམ། སློབ་མ་ཚང་མའི་དཀའ་ངལ་ཡོད་ཚད་ནི་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ཚུལ་མིན་སེམས་གནག་ནས་བྱུང་བ་ཡིན་པ་དང་། ཡང་ན་ཆོས་མཐུན་གྱི་མི་ཚེ་ནང་གནོད་འཚེ་འཕྲད་ཡོད་པའི་རྒྱུ་མཚན་ནི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཁོ་རང་གི་བྱེད་སྟངས་ལས་བྱུང་། མི་དེ་དག་ཐམས་ཅད་ཀྱི་དཀའ་ངལ་རྣམས་ནི་ཁྱེད་རང་སྒང་ལ་རེད། གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཁོང་གི་དེ་འདྲ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པའི་སྐོར་ཤེས་བཞིན་དུ་ཁོང་ལ་མུ་འཐུད་ནས་ཆོས་ཚོགས་སུ་ཆོས་ཁྲིད་བྱེད་པར་གདན་འདྲེན་ཞུ། དེ་ནས་ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་བུད་མེད་དེ་དག་ལ་ཡིད་ཆེས་བྱས་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། དེ་ནས་FPMT ཁྱེད་ཀྱིས་ད་དུང་ཁོང་ལ་གདན་འདྲེན་ཞུ་བ་དེ་མཚམས་འཇོག་མ་བྱེད་ན། སློབ་མ་དེ་དག་རྣམས། ཆོས་བྱེད་མཁན་དེ་དག་རྣམས། བུད་མེད་དེ་དག་རྣམས་ཀྱི་དཀའ་ངལ་དེ་ཚོ་ཚང་མ་ཁྱེད་རང་སྒང་ལ་རེད།

ང་ཇ་ཀེ་ར་པེ་རེཛེ་ཝལ་དི་ཝེ་(Jakaira Perez Valdivia)ཡིན། རང་ལོ་ ༢༦ ཡིན། ང་ཕ་ཇུན་པི་ཛ་(Juan Perez)ཡི་བུ་མོ་ཡིན། པ་སེ་པོ་ཊོ་ཨང་། XD549842 སི་པན་ནས་ཡིན། གཤམ་གྱི་གནས་ཚུལ་ཚང་མ་དངོས་གནས་ཡིན།ཕལ་ཆེར་ཕྱི་ལོ་ ༢༠༠༨ ཕྱི་ཟླ་ ༡༠ ནང་ལ་རེད། ༸གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་གསུང་ཆོས་འདུག ང་ཏྲུ་ཤི་ཏའི་ཆོས་ཚོགས་ལ་བསྡད་པ་ཡིན། ཐོས་བསམ་གླིང་བརྒྱུད་ནས་ཡར་མར་འགྲོ་དགོས་དུས་མ་བདེ་བ་ཞེས་དྲགས་ཡོང་གི་འདུག ང་ལ་སྒལ་རུས་ཀྱི་ན་ཚ་ཞིག་ཡོད། ངས་གོ་ཐོས་ལ་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་དེ་པ་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཡིན་པ་དང་། ཁོང་རྡ་སར་ཡོད་པ་གོ་ཐོས་བྱུང་། ང་ཁོང་གི་སར་བཅར་རྒྱུ་ཐག་གཅོད་བྱེད་པ་ཡིན། ཨེ་ཊ་ལི་ལ་ངས་ཁོ་རང་ཚར་གཅིག་མཇལ་མྱོང་། རྗེས་སུ་ང་རྒྱ་གར་ལ་འབྱོར་དུས་ཁྱུག་ཙམ་མཇལ་བ་དང་། ངའི་དགེ་རྒན་རྒན་བྱམས་པ་རྒྱ་མཚོ་ཕྱི་ལོ་ ༢༠༠༧ ལ་དགོངས་པ་རྫོགས་རྗེས་སུ་དགེ་ཕྲུག་མང་པོ་ཞིག་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ལ་བཀའ་སློབ་ཞུས་པ་རེད། ང་ཡང་གཟུགས་པོ་བདེ་པོ་མེད་ཙང་ལམ་སྟོན་བཀའ་སློབ་ཞུས་སར་བཅར་བ་ཡིན། ལོ་དེའི་འགོ་ཙམ་ལ་ང་ཞེ་དྲག་གི་གཟུགས་པོར་ན་ཟུག་དང་། ན་ཚ་ངོས་འཛིན་ཆེད་བརྟགས་དཔྱད་བྱེད་རྒྱུ་དང་། གཤག་བཅོས་བྱེད་རྒྱུར་གཡོལ་ཐབས་བྱེད་པ་ཡིན།

ང་རང་ཞོག་པ་ཁོང་གི་ཁང་པ་རྣམ་རྒྱལ་གྲྭ་ཚང་གི་རྒྱབ་ལ་ཡོད་ས་དེར་འབྱོར་དུས། ཁོང་གི་ཕྱག་རོགས་ཞིག་ཡོད་པ་ཁོས་མིང་དྲན་གྱི་མི་འདུག དེ་དུས་བོད་སྐད་ཡག་པོ་མ་ཤེས་དང་སྐད་བསྒྱུར་མེད་པར་མཇལ་ཁ་འགྲོ་རྒྱུ་མེད་པ་དང་། ངས་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ལ་འབུལ་བ་ཆུང་ཆུང་ཞིག་ཕུལ་བ་ཡིན། ང་གཟུགས་པོ་བདེ་པོ་མེད་པའི་སྐོར་ཞུས་པ་ཡིན། ངའི་མི་ཚེའི་སྐོར་དང་། སློབ་སྦྱོང་གི་སྐོར་བཀའ་དྲིས་ཞུས་པ་ཡིན། དེ་དུས་ཉིན་གུང་བཞེས་ལག་གི་དུས་ཚོད་རེད་འདུག ཁོང་གིས་ང་ལ་ཉིན་གུང་ཁ་ལག་ལ་སྡོད། ཁ་ལག་ཚར་ནས་ང་དང་མཉམ་དུ་དྷ་རམ་ཀོ་ཊི་རི་ལ་(Dharamkot mountain) ཁོ་རང་དང་མཉམ་དུ་སྦྱིན་བསྲེགས་ཆོ་ག་བྱེད་དགོས་གསུང་བྱུང་། ཞབས་ཕྱི་ཞིག་ནས་ང་ལ་ཤ་མོག་མོག་དང་རུས་ཐང་(soup) ཉོས་ནས་སྤྲད་བྱུང་། ཁ་ལག་ཚར་རྗེས་སུ་ཞབས་ཕྱི་ནས་ལྟོ་སྣོད་རྣམས་བསྡུས་ནས་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ནས་ཁོ་ལ་ཁྱེད་རང་ཁང་པ་དེ་བཞག་ནས་རྒྱུག་གསུང་སོང་།

ངས་བསམ་བློ་ལ་ང་ཚོ་ཡང་ཁང་པ་དེ་བཞག་ནས་འགྲོ་དགོས་ཡོད་ཀྱི་རེད་བསམ་བྱུང་། ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེ་ཕྱིན་ཚར་བའི་རྗེས་སུ། ཁོང་གིས་ང་ལ་ཞ་ལའི་ཐོག་ལ་མར་ཉལ་ནས་གོས་ཕུད་བཅུག་སོང་། ངས་ག་རེ་བྱས་ནས་གོས་ཕུད་དགོས་རེད་ཞུས་པ་ཡིན། ཁོང་གིས་ཁྱེད་རང་སྒང་ལ་ལས་དེ་འདྲ་ཡོད་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་ངས་གཟན་དང་སྟོད་འགག་ཕུད་པ་ཡིན། དངུལ་ལེན་དང་གཤམ་ཐབས་གོན་ནས་བསྡད་པ་ཡིན། ངས་བསམ་བློ་ལ་ཁོང་གིས་ངའི་རྒྱབ་ཐོག་ལ་ཆོ་ག་དེ་འདྲ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད་བསམ་བྱུང་། དེ་ནས་ང་ཞ་ལའི་ཐོག་ལ་ཉལ་བ་ཡིན། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་མཆོད་གཤམ་ཆུང་ཆུང་ཡོད་ས་དེར་ཕྱིན་ནས། ཤེལ་ཕོར་ཞིག་ལག་པར་འཁྱེར་ནས་སླེབས་བྱུང་། ཁོ་རང་གིས་འདི་ཞེ་དྲག་གི་རྩ་ཆེན་གྱི་རྫས་ཞིག་རེད། ཁོ་རང་གིས་ཕྲན་བུ་ཞིག་འཐུང་སོང་། ཡང་སྐྱར་དེ་བསྐང་ནས་ང་ལ་དེ་ཚང་མ་འཐུང་ཤོག་གསུངས་བྱུང་། ངས་འཐུང་དུས་དེ་ཨ་རག་གར་པོ་ཞིག་རེད་འདུག དེ་ནས་ཁོ་རང་ཡང་ནས་ཡང་དུ་འཐུང་གིན་འཐུང་གིན་བྱེད་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཡང་བསྐྱར་ངའི་གོས་དེ་དག་ཕུད་སོང་། ས་ལ་ཉལ་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག ངས་གོས་ཆ་ཚང་ཕུད་མེད། མར་ཉལ་ནས་ས་ལ་ཁ་བསྟན་ནས་བསྡད་ཡིན།

ཁོས་འདོན་པ་འདོན་སྔགས་བགྲང་ནས་ངའི་རྒྱབ་ལ་ཨ་རག་བླུག་ནས་བརྡུང་སོང་། ཁོས་ངའི་གཤམ་ཐབས་དེ་ཐེན་ནས་ལྷུག་ལྷུག་བཟོས་སོང་། ཁོས་ལག་པ་དེ་ངའི་གཤམ་ཐབས་འོག་ནས་རྐྱང་བྱུང་། ངའི་ལུས་པོའི་སྨད་ཕྱོགས་དང་མཚང་ར་ལ་འཕུར་གྱི་འདུག ངས་གཤམ་ཐབས་དེ་མགྱོགས་པོ་དམ་པོ་དཀྲིས་པ་ཡིན། ཁོ་རང་ལ་ངས་དེ་འདྲ་བྱེད་ན་ང་བདེ་པོ་རྩ་ནས་མི་འདུག་ལབ་པ་ཡིན། ཁོས་སེམས་བྲལ་མ་བྱེད་སྐྱོན་གྱི་མ་རེད། ང་ཚོ་རང་གཅེན་པོ་རེད། དེ་ནས་ཡང་བསྐྱར་འདོན་པ་བཏོན་ནས་ཨ་རག་ངའི་གཟུགས་པོར་འཕོ་ནས་ཕུར་སོང་། རྗེས་སུ་ངའི་མོ་མཚན་ལ་ལག་པ་འཆང་བ་སོགས་ཐག་ཉེ་རུ་ཉེ་རུ་བཏང་སོང་།

དེ་ནས་ཁོས་རྐང་པ་ངའི་གཟུགས་པོའི་སྟེང་དུ་བཞག་པ་དང་། ངའི་མཚང་རའི་ཐོག་བསྡད་སོང་། ཁོས་གཟུགས་པོ་ང་ལ་ཚར་མང་པོ་གནན་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ཁ་གྱེན་ལ་བསྟན་ཤོག་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུགཁོས་དེ་ནས་གཟུགས་པོར་ཐུག་པ་དང་། ཕུར་བ། ཨ་རག་ངའི་གྲོད་ཁོག་ཐོག་བླུག་པ་དང་། ནུ་མ་དང་མཚང་ར་ཕུར་བ། ཡིན་ནའང་ངས་ལག་པ་གཅིག་གིས་དངུལ་ལེན་དམ་པ་བྱས་ནས་ཟིན་ཡིན། ལག་པ་གཞན་དེས་གཤམ་ཐབས་དམ་པོ་བྱས་ནས་འཇུས་པ་ཡིན། ཁོས་ཐ་མ་དེ་ལ་གད་མོ་དགོད་ནས་ཁྱེད་རང་ཨ་ནི་ཡག་པོ་ཞིག་རེད་འདུག བསམ་བློ་གཙང་མ་རེད་འདུག་ལབ་བྱུང་།

དེ་དུས་ངའི་གཟུགས་པོ་ཚང་མ་ལ་ཨ་རག་གིས་ཁྱབ་ནས་འདུག དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ང་ལ་བསྡད་ལབ་བྱུང་། ངས་ད་ཚར་བ་ཡིན་གྱི་རེད་བསམ་བྱུང་། ངས་གྲྭ་ཆས་ཆ་ཚང་ཡག་པོ་བྱས་ནས་གྱོན་པ་ཡིན། ཡིན་ནའང་ཁོས་ང་ལ་སྒུག་ཨ་ཞེས་ལབ་བྱུང་། དེ་དུས་ངས་གདོང་པ་རྩིག་པ་ལ་བལྟས་ནས་ཡོད། ཁོ་ངས་རྒྱབ་ལ་ཡོད་རེད། སྔགས་དེ་འདྲ་བགྲང་བཞིན་འདུག དེ་མ་ཐག་ཁོས་ང་ལ་ཐམ་བྱུང་། རྒྱབ་ནས་ཁོས་ལག་པས་ངའི་ནུ་མ་ཕུར་གྱི་འདུག ངས་ལག་པས་ང་རང་གི་ནུ་མ་བཀབ་པ་ཡིན། ཁོས་ལག་པ་གཞན་པ་དེས་ངའི་གཤམ་ཐབས་བརྫེས་ཀྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་ཐ་མ་དེ་ཁོས་ཕོ་མཚན་དེ་ངས་རྒྱབ་ལ་གཏུགས་ཀྱི་འདུག

དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ང་ལ་ཁོ་རང་སྒེར་གྱི་གསང་སྤྱོད་ནང་ལ་གཟུགས་པོ་ཁྲུས་ཤོག་ལབ་བྱུང་། ངས་ལུས་པོ་ཆ་ཚང་ལ་ཨ་རག་གི་དྲི་མས་ཁེངས་ནས་འདུག ཁོས་གསང་སྤྱོད་ནང་ལ་ཁོ་རང་གི་ལག་ཕྱིས་དེ་ང་ལ་སྤྲད་ནས་གཟུགས་པོ་སྐམ་པོ་བཟོས་ཞེས་ལབ་བྱུང་། ངས་མགྱོགས་པོ་བྱས་ནས་གཟུགས་པོ་ཁྲུས་ནས་ཕྱི་ལ་ཡོང་དུས་ཁོ་རང་ཉལ་ཁྲིའི་སྟེང་སྡད་འདུག བཞུགས་ཁྲིའི་སྟེང་ལ་བསྡད་པ་ནང་བཞིན་བྱས་ནས་ཁོ་རང་གི་ཤག་གི་ནང་ལ་བསྡད་འདུག ཁོས་ང་ལ་ཁོ་རང་འོག་དེར་སྡོད་ལབ་བྱུང་། ཁོ་རང་དཔེ་ཆ་ཞིག་ཀློག་ནས་བསྡད་འདུག ཁོ་རང་གི་ལྡིང་བ་དེ་གཡས་ཕྱོགས་སུ་འཐེན་ནས་ང་ལ་གདན་ཁྲིའི་ཟུར་ལ་བསྡད་དང་ལབ་བྱུང་། དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ང་ལ་ཁོས་ལག་གཡས་པ་ལ་འཆང་བཅུག་ནས་ང་ལ་བསྐུ་མཉེ་བྱེད་དང་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག ངས་ང་བསྐུ་མཉེ་བྱེད་ཤེས་ཀྱི་མེད་ལབ་པ་ཡིན། ཁོས་ལག་པས་ངའི་ལག་པ་དང་བླ་ཤ་ལ་ཕུར་སོང་། (ང་ཁོས་གདན་ཁྲིའི་ཟུར་ལ་རླ་གཅིག་གི་སྟེང་ལ་གཅིག་བཞག་ནས་བསྡད་ཡོད།) དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ང་ལ་སྔགས་ཁ་ཤས་ཞིག་འདོན་བཅུག་སོང་། ཁོས་ངའི་རྩ་འཁོར་དེ་དག་ལ་བྱིན་གྱིས་བརླབས་ཀྱི་ཡིན་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་ཁོས་དབུ་ཐུག་བྱས་བྱུང་། དེ་རྗེས་མགྲིན་པ། ངས་ལག་པས་ནུ་མ་དང་གྲོད་པ་ལ་འཐམ་ནས་བསྡད་པ་ཡིན་པས། ཁོས་ལུས་པོའི་སྨད་ཕྱོགས་ཀྱི་ཆ་ཤས་ལ་ཐུག་ཐུབ་མ་སོང་།

དེ་རྗེས་སུ་ཁོས་ང་ལ་ཁང་གཞན་པ་དེ་ལ་འགྲོ་ཤོག་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག དེ་ལ་ཞབས་སྟེགས་ཁ་ཤས་ཞིག་འདུག ཕྲན་བུ་ཞིག་གུག་ནས་ཞལ་འདོན་ཚར་བ་དང་། ཁོས་ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེ་ལ་ཁ་པར་བཏང་ནས་ད་ག་ལེར་ཤོག་ཅེས་ལབ་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེ་ཁང་པའི་ཕྱོགས་གཞན་ཞིག་ནས་སླེབ་བྱུང་། ང་ཡར་ལངས་པ་ཡིན། ཁོ་ངའི་འགྲམ་ལ་ཡོང་ནས་ཁོས་འགྲམ་པ་དེས་ངའི་འཇིང་པར་ཐུག་ནས་གདོང་ལ་བལྟས་ནས་ངའི་རྣ་བར་སྐད་ཤུགས་ཆུང་ཆུང་བྱས་ནས་ང་ཚོ་རང་གི་གཅེན་པོ་རེད། ངས་དངོས་གནས་ཀྱི་གཅེན་པོ་མ་རེད་ཞེས་ལབ་པ་ཡིན།

དེ་ནས་ཁོ་རང་མཆོད་གཤམ་ཡོད་སའི་ཁང་ཆུང་དེའི་ནང་ལ་ཕྱིན་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཡང་ཚུར་ལ་ཡོང་ནས་ཁོ་རང་གི་ལག་པར་ཆུ་ཤོག་ནག་པོ་ཞིག་གི་ནང་ལ་གཅིག་བཅུག་ནས་སླེབ་བྱུང་། ཁོས་ང་ལ་འདི་ནང་མཆོད་རེད། ཉིན་ལྟར་ཕོར་ཆུང་གང་རེ་འཐུང་ཨ་ཞེས་ལབ་བྱུང་། དེ་ནས་ཡང་བསྐྱར་སྔགས་བགྲང་ནས་འཐུང་སོང་། ཡང་བསྐྱར་དུ་བཀང་ནས་དེ་ཁྱེད་རང་གིས་འཐུང་དགོས་ཡོད་འདི་ནང་མཆོད་རེད། ངས་འཐུང་བ་ཡིན་ཏེ་དེ་ཨ་རག་རེད་འདུག ཁོས་གད་མོ་དགོད་ནས་ཨ་ནི་ལགས་ཟབ་ཟབ་བྱེད། ཁྱེད་རང་ར་གཟི་འདུག ཁོས་མང་པོ་འཐུང་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཁོས་ང་ལ་འགྱིག་ཤོག་ནག་པོ་དེ་སྤྲད་ནས་ནང་ལ་འཁྱེར་རྒྱུགས་ལབ་སོང་། དེ་ནས་ཁོས་དེ་ཚོའི་སྐོར་དེ་མི་གཞན་དག་སུ་ལའང་མ་བཤད་ཨ། ནང་མཆོད་དེ་གཞན་སུ་ལའང་མ་བསྟན་ཞེས་ལབ་བྱུང་།

དེ་ནས་ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེ་ཡོང་ནས་ང་དང་མཉམ་དུ་རྡ་རམ་ཀོ་ཊོ་(Dharamkot)ལ་སྦྱིན་སྲེགས་འབུལ་ས་ལ་འགྲོ་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག ངས་ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེ་ལ་ད་ང་ཕྱི་པོ་ཆགས་འགྲོ་འདུག ང་ཊུ་ཤི་ཏ་ཆོས་ཚོགས་ལ་ལོག་དགོས་ཡོད། ལས་ཁུངས་ལ་དེབ་བསྐྱེལ་བྱེད་དགོས་ཡོད་ལབ་པ་ཡིན། རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ཁོང་ཚོས་ང་ལ་དམིགས་བསལ་བཏང་གི་རེད་གསུང་བྱུང་། དེ་ནས་ང་ཚོ་ཕྱི་ལ་ཕྱིན་པ་ཡིན། ཞབས་ཕྱི་དེས་གླ་འཁོར་ཞིག་བཀག་སོང་། ང་ཚོ་རྡ་རམ་ཀོ་ཊོ་བར་མཉམ་དུ་ཕྱིན་པ་ཡིན། དེ་ནས་གླ་འཁོར་མོ་ཊ་དེ་ཊུ་ཤི་ཏའི་སྒེར་གྱི་ལམ་དེར་འབྱོར་སྐབས། རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ནས་ངས་ལག་པ་འཇུས་ནས་སྒོར་ལྔ་བརྒྱ་ཐམ་པ་ངའི་ལྟོ་པད་ནང་བཅུག་སོང་།

Second woman alleges molestation by Dagri Rinpoche

10th May 2019 | Tenzin Gaphel | 76 Views

DHARAMSALA, 9th May: In yet another molestation allegation against Dagri Rinpoche, a Spanish woman has alleged that she was molested by the senior Tibetan Buddhist teacher ten years ago when she was a nun.

In a video posted on YouTube on Tuesday, Jakaira Perez Valdivia has alleged that Dagri Rinpoche had molested her 10 years ago at his residence behind Namgyal Monastery when she visited him seeking advice for her back problem (pain).

She has stated that it took her a long time to come out in the open to tell about her ordeal because people tried to convince her otherwise, that the Rinpoche did it out of compassion.

She further claimed that there are many other women who were also molested by Dagri Rinpoche.

“Many girls and women; laywomen, nuns, Western, Tibetan, Indians have been molested by Dagri Rinpoche,” the Spanish women alleged while urging them to come forward and tell their stories.

Jakaira’s allegation follows a similar allegation levelled against Dagri Rinpoche about a week ago by an Indian woman who accused the Tibetan Buddhist teacher of molesting her on a Dharamsala bound flight from Delhi.

A 30-year-old woman from Kinnaur has accused Rinpoche of molesting her on a morning flight from Delhi to Gagal (Dharamsala) on an Air India Flight on 3rd May”, reported several Hindi language news papers citing an FIR lodged at the Gagal Police station.

The 65-year old Rinpoche was reportedly detained by the police for enquiry after which he was said to be released on bail.

Dagri Rinpoche, as one of the touring lamas(title for a teacher of the Dharma in Tibetan Buddhism) of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), conducts extensive teachings across Europe and Asia.

Attempts made by Tibet Express to get a response from Dagri Rinpoche through his Facebook and personal e-mail address were met with no response at all while numerous attempts to send e-mail to the international office of the FPMT and its President/CEO through the foundation’s webpage were unsuccessful.

Dagri Rinpoche is the reincarnation of Pari (Dagri) Dorje Chang, a great Buddhist scholar from Lhasa. He was born in Tibet in 1958 and grew up during the Cultural Revolution of 1966 – 1976. After his escape from Tibet in 1982, he studied Buddhist philosophy for 17 years and received the Geshe Lharampa degree.

The Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama has consistently denounced ‘irresponsible and unethical behaviours from Buddhist teachers.

“People who commit sexual abuse don’t care about the Buddha’s teaching,” the Dalai Lama had said while addressing on a similar issue in Ladakh in 2017 and encouraged Buddhists followers to make the behaviours of abusive teachers public by approaching media.

“Make it public through media, though they may not pay heed to Buddhist teachings on ethical behaviour, they will likely take notice if their face appears in the media” the Dalai Lama had stated.

ཡི་གེའི་འདྲ་བཤུས། བོད་ཡིག་ཏུ་བསྒྱུར་བ། ཆེ་རུ་གཏོང་ན། འདི་གནོན།

ཚང་མ་ལ་བཀྲ་བཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས་ཞུ་རྒྱུ་ཡིན། ང་ད་རིང་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་སྐོར་ལ་སྐད་ཆ་ཉུང་ཙམ་བཤད་དགོས་བསམ་བྱུང་། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ངའི་དགེ་རྒན་མ་རེད། ང་དང་འབྲེལ་བ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། ཧ་ལམ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད་ལབ་ན་སྒྲིག་གི་རེད། ད་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་ངའི་གྲོགས་མོ་ཞིག་ལ་སྡུག་ཅག་གནང་འདུག ལོ་བཅུ་སྔོན་ལ། དེང་སང་མི་ཚང་མས་ཕལ་ཆེར་མཁྱེན་གྱི་ཡོད་ས་རེད། ཡིན་ནའང་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་དེ་རིང་ཡིག་གེ་ཞིག་བྲིས་ནས་སེ་ར་ལ་གསལ་བསྒྲགས་གནང་འདུག དེ་ནས་ཡིག་གེ་དེའི་ནང་ལ་ཁོང་གི་རྙོག་དྲ་ཚ་པོ་ཅན་གྱི་སྐད་ཆ་མི་འདྲ་བ་འགའ་ཤས་བཤད་ཀྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་ངས་དེ་སྐོར་སྐད་ཆ་ཉུང་ཙམ་བཤད་དགོས་བསམ་འབྱུང་། དང་པོ་དེར་ཁོང་གིས་གནམ་གྲུའི་ནང་གི་གནས་ཚུལ་གྱི་སྐོར་ལ་བཤད་ཀྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་གནམ་གྲུའི་ནང་ལ་བདུན་ཕྲག་ཞིག་གི་སྔོན་ལ། རྒྱ་གར་བུ་མོ་ཅིག་ལ་ལག་པ་འཆང་བ་དང་། དེ་ནས་རྒྱ་གར་བུ་མོ་དེས་ཉན་རྟོག་པར་སྙན་སེང་ཞུས་ཤིང་། བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་བཙོན་ཁང་ནང་བཅུག་འདུག དེ་ནས་དེའི་སྐོར་ལ་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་གང་བཤད་ཀྱི་འདུག་ཟེར་ན། ཁོང་གིས་བུ་མོ་དེ་ཉིད་ཁུག་འདུག་པ་དང་། རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཁོ་རང་གཟུགས་པོ་བདེ་པོ་མེད་པས། མར་བསྡད་དགོས་དུས་ཁོང་གིས་བསམ་བློ་མ་གཏང་ནས་གང་བྱུང་ལག་པ་འཆང་བ་ཡིན་ས་རེད་བ། དེ་ནས་རྒྱ་གར་བུ་མོ་འདི་ལ་ཐུག་འདུག དེ་ནས་རྒྱ་གར་བུ་མོ་དེ་གཉིད་སད་རྗེས་སྐད་ཆ་མང་པོ་བཤད་འདུག ད་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ཁོ་རང་རྒྱ་གར་སྐད་ཧ་མ་གོ་ནས་གང་ཡང་གོ་ཚོས་ཀྱི་མི་འདུག་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག དེ་ནས་གང་ཡང་མགོ་མ་ཚོས་ནས་འཛུམ་ཡིན་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག

ཡང་མེད་ན་རྒྱ་གར་གྱི་བུ་མོ་དེའི་སྐད་མགོ་ཚོས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་རེད། ཡང་ན་མགོ་ཚོས་ཀྱི་མ་རེད་བ། གཉིས་ཀ་ཡིན་སྲིད་ཀྱི་མ་རེད་བ། གཅིག་མ་ཡིན་ན་གཅིག་ཡིན་དགོས་རེད། རྙོག་དྲ་བྱུང་ས་གནས་ཚུལ་གཉིས་པ་དེ་གང་རེད་ཅེ་ན། ད་ངའི་གྲོགས་མོ་དེ་སྔར་ཨ་ནེ་ཞིག་རེད། ཡི་གེའི་ནང་ནམ་རྒྱུན་ཨ་ནེ་བྲིས་སྲོལ་ཡོད་པ་མ་རེད། གུས་ཞབས་བྱེད་ན་ཚིག་བཙུན་མ་ཞེས་བྲིས་དགོས་རེད། དེ་ནང་ཁོང་གིས་གུས་ཞབས་མེད་པའི་རྟགས་རེད།

དེང་སང་སེ་ར་དགོན་པའི་བླ་མ་བཟོད་པ་རེན་པོ་ཆེ་ཡང་དེ་ག་རང་རེད། དེ་ཚོ་དཔེ་རེད། ད་ཁོང་གི་སྐད་ཆ་འདི་ནང་ལ་ཁོང་གིས་གང་བྲིས་ཡོད་ཅེ་ན། ཨ་ནེ་དེ་ལུས་སེམས་ལ་དཀའ་བསྔལ་བྱུང་བ་དེ་ཅེས་བྲིས་བཞག ཤུགས་ཀྱི་གོ་བ་གང་ཡིན་ཟེར་ན། སྨྱོན་མ་ཡིན་པ་ཤུགས་ལ་གོ་བ་ཅིག་སྟོན་གྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད། དངོས་གནས་བྱས་ན་ཨ་ནེ་དེ་སྒལ་པ་ན་ནས་འགྲོ་ཡིན་ཞེས་བཤད་འདུག ད་ང་བློ་གཟུགས་མེད་ནས་སྐད་ཆ་བཤད་ཐུབ་ཀྱི་མ་རེད། ད་ཨ་ནེ་དེ་སྔ་མ་ནས་དེང་སང་བར་དུ་ངའི་གྲོགས་མོ་རེད། ཡིད་ཆེས་བྱེད་དགོས་པའི་རྒྱུ་མཚན་མེད་པ་མ་རེད། རྒྱུ་མཚན་མང་པོ་ཡོད་རེད། ད་ཡིག་གེ་དེའི་ནང་བྲག་རི་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་མོའི་སེམས་བདེ་པོ་མི་འདུག་ཞེས་བཤད་འདུག དེའི་ཤུགས་དོན་ནི་སྨྱོན་པ་རེད་ཅེས་སྟོན་གྱི་ཡོད་པ་རེད། ཁོང་གི་བཤད་པའི་སྐད་ཆ་དེ་བདེན་པ་མ་རེད། དེ་ཀུན་སློང་བཟང་པོ་མ་ཡིན་པའི་རྟགས་རེད། དེ་བཟང་པོ་མ་རེད། གནོད་སེམས་ཀྱི་དབང་བྱེད་ནས་ཆགས་སེམས་ཀྱི་དབང་དུ་བྱེད་ནས་དེ་བྲིས་ཡིན་ས་རེད་ཅེས་བསམ་གྱི་འདུག མ་གཏོགས་གཞན་གང་བྱས་ནས་དེ་འདྲ་ལབ་ཀྱི་རེད། ཡིན་ནའང་ང་ལ་མ་ཡོང་བ་མ་རེད་བ། ཡིན་ནའང་ཁོང་དེ་འདྲ་ལབ་དུས་སེམས་ནང་དམིགས་ཡུལ་གཞན་པ་ཡོད་པ་ལྟ་བུ་སེམས་ནང་སྐྱེད་ཀྱི་འདུག གཅིག་བྱས་ན་འདི་ངའི་རྣམ་རྟོག་རེད། དེ་ནས་ཁོང་ལ་རྙོག་དྲ་གཞན་པ་དེ་གང་འདུག་ཟེར་ན། གསལ་བསྒྲགས་དེའི་ནང་ལ། ཨ་ནེ་དེ་མཉམ་དུ་ང་ཚོ་ཐུག་ཡོད་རེད། ལོ་མང་པོ་སྔོན་ལ། དེ་ནས་དཔང་པོ་མི་སྣ་དྲུག་དང་མཉམ་དུ་འཛོམས་པ་རེད་ཅེས་བཤད། མི་དྲུག་ཡོད་རེད། འཛོམས་དུས་མི་དྲུག་དེ་ག་རང་ཡོད་རེད། ཨ་ནེ་དེ་གཅིག་དང་། ངའི་གྲོགས་མོ། རིན་པོ་ཆེ་དང་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་གསོལ་དཔོན་ཡོད་རེད྄། དེ་ནས་ཁོའི་གྲྭ་ཚང་གི་ཆེན་མོ་ལགས་ཡོད་ཟེར་གྱི་འདུག དཔང་པོ་མ་རེད་བ། ཁོང་གི་ཕྱོགས་ཁས་ལེན་གྱི་མ་རེད། ཁོང་གི་ཕྱོགས་ཁས་མ་ལེན་མཁན་དེ་ཚོ་ལ་སོ་སོའི་དཔང་པོ་ཇི་ལྟར་བཞག་གི་ཡིན་ནམ། ཁོང་གི་ཡི་གེ་འདི་ནང་གང་བྱས་ནས་འདི་འདྲ་བྲིས་ཀྱི་ཡོད་དམ། སོ་སོ་བསམ་བློ་གཏོང་དགོས་རེད་བ།

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE: FPMT FINALLY “TEMPORARILY” SUSPENDS DAGRI RINPOCHE

Nearly a week after Dagri Rinpoche was arrested for molesting an Indian lady on a Delhi-Dharamsala flight, FPMT International finally released an official statement announcing that they have suspended Dagri Rinpoche from their list of official teachers. This means that Dagri Rinpoche will no longer be allowed to teach in or visit any FPMT centres. The suspension shows that FPMT believe the allegations of the women who are speaking up against Dagri Rinpoche.

Click to enlarge ཆེ་རུ་གཏོང་བར་ནོན། (Source: https://fpmt.org/fpmt-community-news/unpublished/update-regarding-dagri-rinpoche/)

In the statement, FPMT admitted to having prior knowledge of the serious allegations against Dagri Rinpoche as far back as 2011, that the Dalai Lama’s Office were fully aware of Dagri Rinpoche’s sexual abuse, and that Dagri Rinpoche had been sternly warned to avoid similar situations in the future. FPMT also claims to have warned FPMT centres of the potential dangers of inviting Dagri Rinpoche (i.e. the dangers of Dagri Rinpoche making sexual advances on their female members and students).

Given that FPMT had such foreknowledge, the big question is, why did FPMT remain quiet for so long after news of the Indian lady being molested was announced? Why didn’t FPMT give more stringent warnings to all their international members when complaints about Dagri Rinpoche began circulating again a year ago? Why was FPMT so irresponsible to not remove Dagri Rinpoche from their approved teachers list a year ago, or eight years ago? Why did FPMT try to cover up the situation for so long until now when all hell has broken loose? Shame on you FPMT for being another religious organisation that covers up sexual scandals and allows your members to be exposed to abuse by sexual predators in positions of power. FPMT will now and forever be seen as an organisation that knowingly harbours sexual predators and does nothing about it.

It is unbelievably sad that so many nuns and women needed to be accosted by Dagri Rinpoche before FPMT finally decided to break their silence. FPMT should have suspended and disqualified Dagri Rinpoche a long time ago instead of sending him all over the world and allowing many more women to become victims. Dagri Rinpoche is a sexual predator of the highest degree. Now, victims and their friends are speaking up and even more victims will emerge from the woodwork. They are no longer keeping quiet. FPMT’s lame suspension of Dagri Rinpoche will not placate the public. The Dagri Rinpoche issue will not simply go away but will continue to grow and keep coming back to haunt FPMT again and again.

Strong actions are what is needed now to show that FPMT are sincere and serious about making up for their mistakes. For their part in covering up Dagri Rinpoche’s sexual abuse, FPMT must issue a public apology. What Dagri Rinpoche did is a crime punishable under the law with jail time. It is high time that FPMT stop sitting on the fence to protect themselves but actively support the police investigations into Dagri Rinpoche and cooperate to the fullest extent in order to not lose even more credibility.

 

LAMA ZOPA RINPOCHE’S SOLUTION TO DAGRI RINPOCHE’S CHARGES OF MOLESTATION
AND SEXUAL ABUSE

Weeks after the FPMT’s silence on Dagri Rinpoche’s molestation charges, Lama Zopa Rinpoche finally addressed the issue, in what became a ‘teaching’.

In fact, Lama Zopa only touched lightly on the Dagri issue before his talk meandered to other topics inviting listeners to forget about Dagri Rinpoche’s offences.

Essentially, Lama Zopa’s explanation is that the women who were abused by Dagri Rinpoche should view him as a deity because Dagri had a couple of dreams that he went to Gaden Heaven and was in fact an extraordinary being. No, you didn’t hear it wrong. To be sure, Lama Zopa advised that because Dagri Rinpoche had dreams that he, Dagri, was extraordinary, the women should just let him do whatever he likes to them.

If Lama Zopa’s view is to be accepted, then we can all do away with the law, monastic rules, vows and everything that has kept the practice of Buddhism on the straight and narrow. Everyone who commits a crime should not be required to be brought to justice, provided the perpetrator has had a couple of dreams of being a deity. According to Lama Zopa, Dagri Rinpoche’s victims are to accept this explanation and deal with the crime inflicted upon them happily. This is precisely the kind of medieval thinking, used to justify slavery and serfdom.

Having said all that, this explanation is convenient because if all Dagri Rinpoche’s victims were to behold him in this ‘pure view,’ then Lama Zopa and the FPMT would have no need to deal with a very thorny issue and the inconvenient fact that they have been caught covering up for him. On his part, Dagri Rinpoche would be completely unshackled and it is frightening to think what he would do with this unrestricted immunity.

Lama Zopa had a choice, to take the bull by the horns and deal with a dangerous predator’s exploits in a logical and conventional way so that everyone can see that the FPMT does not condone misconducts by members of it’s teaching fraternity, or throw the burden back on the victims and ask them to deal with it.

If indeed Dagri Rinpoche is special and extraordinary it would have been easier for him to act responsibly and lead more people to the dharma and to increase the faith of Buddhist aspirants. Why ask ordinary people to think in extraordinary ways when supposedly extraordinary lamas cannot abide by even common codes of decency? However special the explanation sounds, the fact remains that the victims are human beings and experience sufferings as ordinary people do. To throw the burden back to them is to add to their suffering.

If we are to accept Lama Zopa’s reasoning, then we should now inform all future victims of Dagri Rinpoche to start seeing him as an extraordinary being and to welcome being molested and touched inappropriately. Everyone, and there will be a lot of them, should be informed ahead of time, that they should just expect Dagri to sexually assault them, use them however he likes and it is their responsibility to deal with this attack and feel “blessed”. Victims of Dagri Rinpoche’s offences should be told now not to waste time and emotional energy trying to get justice in future. Imagine if we apply this explanation to all aspects of life, there would be no need for anyone to behave at all and all we would need as we like is to have dreams.

[TRICYCLE] Nuns Push for Investigation into Molestation Allegations against
Teacher Dagri Rinpoche

Click to enlarge (Source: https://tricycle.org/trikedaily/dagri-rinpoche-abuse/)

This is the first time Tricycle, a prominent Buddhist publication, has published criticism of Lama Zopa. The first criticism came in the form of a powerful letter written by a group of prominent nuns addressed directly to FPMT and calling for an independent investigation. This letter is significant not only because of the nuns’ reputations but because it mentions there are more women who were molested by Dagri Rinpoche who are still anonymous. Being that these nuns already dare to speak up, if an independent investigation begins, it is likely that they will encourage the anonymous victims to come forward and aid in the investigation.

The reality is that these nuns would not compose an open letter to FPMT if they were not absolutely sure that Dagri Rinpoche is guilty of his crimes; they would not lend their names to a campaign or movement that they did not have evidence or a basis for. They also would not call for an independent investigation if they were not already sure of the outcome.

JAKAIRA REPLIES

Tricycle also received a statement from Jakaira Perez Valdivia which they published. In her scathing reply, she systematically refutes and criticizes Dagri Rinpoche’s statement, FPMT’s statement and Lama Zopa’s response. In particular, she says that Lama Zopa’s response is an attempt to use karma and religion to excuse Dagri Rinpoche’s crimes. Elsewhere, Lama Zopa’s response has also been met with widespread derision for being tone deaf, out of touch and lacking in compassion or sympathy for the victims.

It is time for FPMT to do more, and to agree to an independent investigation or it will appear as though they are once again attempting to conceal the truth and deceive the public. Unless FPMT comes clean and are honest with what really happened, the Dagri molestation case will forever be a stain on Lama Zopa’s and FPMT’s reputations since they have spent the past decade covering it up.

BURNING NEWS: How to protect yourself from lama murta?

Ordinary Tibetans are now coming forward to offer advice to non-Tibetans on how they can protect themselves against sexual abuse and how they can prevent it from happening. This is unlike Lama Zopa and FPMT who expose vulnerable students to abusive characters like Dagri Rinpoche, by continuing to promote them as a valid source of teachings. Furthermore, FPMT and Lama Zopa have also chosen to sweep the issue of sexual abuse under the rug, and advise victims how to view the abuse AFTER they have experienced it. Clearly ordinary Tibetans like Mila Rangzen understand that prevention better than cure.

It is precisely because of organizations like the FPMT that these days, students have to be warned against abusive lamas. It is precisely because of organizations like FPMT that these days, students have to be taught how to force their teachers to tell the truth. If FPMT had a culture of transparency, teachers like Dagri Rinpoche would not be allowed to get away with their abuse.

TRANSCRIPT (click to expand)

Hi,

Welcome to Tibet Star. Today, the topic I have is on how to fight lama molestation. This video is especially for non-Tibetans who face this kind of problem. First thing first, never enter into a room alone with a lama, or Tulku or Rinpoche. It’s a big no-no, no. If you have to be in a room with a lama, make sure there’s a witness. Two, any time a molestation occurs, make sure you have a photo or an audio, or the best would be a video to prove your claims and also keep a diary or a journal. Write everything down with dates, timing, everything. Now, number five, make sure you go and blog about it, and then go to Youtube and talk about it, and share it on Facebook, and take the molesting lama to the media and challenge, now, this is very important, challenge him to do all of the following.

Number one, challenge him, challenge him to make a statement, a press statement, a written statement. Two, challenge him to come to YouTube and defend himself. Then challenge him to do a press conference, not just a written statement where you cannot see his face and facial expression, and body language. These are very important to get some sense of whether the person is telling the truth, when people could ask questions and find out what really happened. And then challenge him to go through a lie-detector test.

Now, these two are somewhat traditional. Nevertheless, they are very powerful in the Tibetan world. Challenge him to swear upon his root guru and other high Lamas that he respects. Challenge him to swear upon their lives that his claims are true, that he is telling the truth. For those non-Tibetans, this will freak out most of the Tibetans, including lamas, Tulkus and Rinpoches. When you challenge them to swear upon their root guru. Because their fear of hell is real, 18 realms of hell, to them is real, and you talk about Vajra Hell, it will scare the shit out of them. 99% of them will not be able to swear upon their root guru, and that can give you an idea whether the person is telling the truth or not. If he’s innocent, he shouldn’t have any problem in swearing upon his root guru. But if he’s guilty, 99% of the time he will not do it. 99% of the lamas, Tulkus, Rinpoches will not do it if they are guilty, because their fear of hell is real.

Then, challenge him to meet you at Nechung and Palden Lhamo temple in Dharamsala. It could be done anywhere else where you have a statue of Nechung and Palden Lhamo, but do it in Dharamsala. This is symbolic, this is far more powerful. Challenge him to come, and both of you will swear before Nechung, the oracle Nechung and Palden Lhamo. This will again freak out the lama, Rinpoche, Tulku, if he’s guilty because their fear of the hell is very real. What they fear is one, the belief is that as soon as you go to, go before the Nechung and oracle is claiming to be telling the truth. So whoever is guilty, whoever lies, what happens, the belief is that within a month or so, the one who is guilty, the one who is lying will throw up blood and die. This is one fear they have. Two, while they are dead, they’re afraid that they will be reborn in hell, one of the 18 hells, or Vajra Hell.

Now, what kind of signs will show if the person, the guilty person is lying is that a misfortune will strike him in the next 30 days, or sometimes 90 days, max one year. Either he could lose his limbs in an accident, or he catches some terminal disease, or he dies. Now, this fear is real, so it’s pointers. Now, when you go about it, to go about it in an ascending order, not in a descending order because that will destroy the climax, because there will be no climax at all. And so, take your time. It could be a week between each move that you take, or sometimes it could be between a couple of days between each move that you make. So make your move accordingly. Don’t throw all the 15 moves that I’m talking about on his face in a single day. Don’t do that. One at a time and build up momentum, and finally come down to Nechung and oracle, and that will scare the shit out of the lama, trust me.

Now, what do you do after that? Usually when Tibetans have this kind of problems or similar problems, they take it to Nechung and Palden Lhamo, and it gets decided right there and they do not go to the court. Now, in this case, take him to the police, hire a lawyer and challenge him in the court. I know most of the points that I raised here are pretty obvious to many of the women who go through molestation, but as an insider and someone who belongs to the inner core once, these swearing in, challenging him to swear upon his root guru, and meeting at Nechung and Palden Lhamo to decide the outcome, these are unbelievably powerful. So use them. Basically what you do at the temple is you swear, you prostrate, probably three times before the statue of Nechung and oracle, and swear that you are, both of you will swear that you’re telling the truth, and whoever lies, whoever is guilty should meet with an unfortunate incident anytime soon. So, that could be losing a limb in an accident or could be an actual death, and then you part from there. Now everything is decided by the Nechung Oracle. That’s the belief system, so exploit it, of course, for your good purpose.

 

The FPMT’s second statement on Dagri Rinpoche’s
exposé shows bad intent

Just over a week after the FPMT’s initial statement regarding Dagri Rinpoche’s molestation charges, the FPMT has come up with a second statement.

Firstly, it should be noted that this second FPMT statement would not have been necessary if the FPMT had been sincere in addressing the Dagri problem from the start. Clearly, the FPMT tried to sidestep taking responsibility for its senior teacher’s abuses of innocent victims, and that sparked a huge public outcry making this second statement necessary.

In its first statement, the FPMT did not even acknowledge the pain and sufferings of Dagri’s victims, which it now does after considerable arm-twisting and pressure from the public.

If anyone is wondering if the FPMT is sincere about finding a proper remedy for Dagri’s victims, they should have the answer now. The FPMT now claims that it understands how difficult it has been for the victims to speak out publicly. Again if this were true, the FPMT would have provided a safe platform for Dagri’s victims to surface confidently and facilitated investigations by now. This was in fact what senior nuns like Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo called for, but to date apart from lip service, this has not happened.

After a casual and almost perfunctory mention of the feelings of Dagri’s victims, the FPMT spends the bulk of its second statement explaining its Ethical Policy as if to say that its commitment ends there and beyond that, it does not owe a duty of care to anyone who comes to the FPMT for the dharma, nor is it truly interested in preserving the Mahayana tradition.

A number of points need to be highlighted. This is the FPMT in the raw. Have a good look.

POINTS (click to expand)

  1. The FPMT acknowledged that the Office of the Dalai Lama notified it of Dagri’s sexual assault against Jakaira Perez Valdivia in 2011. The fact the Jakaira Perez had to lodge a complaint with the Dalai Lama’s office is proof that she could not get anyone in FPMT to take her seriously and therefore had to resort to seeking help elsewhere. This culture remains seeing how weeks after news of Dagri’s sexual abuses broke, the FPMT is still dodging blame and toying with semantics.
  2. The FPMT had the audacity to state that the assault on Jakaira Perez did not take place at an FPMT centre, and it implies that because of that, they do not have to take any responsibility. This is a shocking statement because it reveals the FPMT’s true character, not whether the organization and its people are doing the right thing but how it can escape liability. The fact that the assault was conducted by one of its senior teaching staff did not matter to the FPMT. In other words, it doesn’t matter what Dagri does and who he harms. The FPMT is prepared to ignore all that so long as it can escape liability and this is supposed to a centre that preserves the teachings of the Buddha? This is not an organization that is socially responsible, and its behaviour is more akin to the mafia than an organization that claims to uphold the Buddha’s teachings.
  3. In the FPMT’s second statement, it also acknowledged that it was quite happy to shrug responsibility of its staff and expect someone else (in this case, the Dalai Lama’s office) to clean up after it. Presumably the weight of the Dalai Lama’s office come in handy to sweep the issue under the rug. What is critical is the FPMT’s acknowledgement that it did not conduct its own investigation into complaints against Dagri. This is important to note because it goes to show that the FPMT is not seeking for truth and facts to be revealed. It is not interested in protecting victims. It is not interested in rectifying flaws in its system and to make sure that further damage to innocent people are avoided and those who have been harmed receive the help they need.
  4. We can also safely gather that the FPMT knew about Dagri’s predatorial ways, but continued to let him be on the prowl. The FPMT shows that it is not truly interested in what Dagri does, nor is it truly interested in the wellbeing of its regional centres. All it is interested in is to protect itself and hence all the FPMT did was to ‘remind’ its regional and national coordinators of complaints against Dagri but at the same time, promoting him as a credible teacher. We also see how Lama Zopa refers to Dagri as a holy being. Therefore the FPMT’s warnings are hollow and put in place for exactly situations like this so they can avoid culpability. In the FPMT’s second statement, it also confirmed that Jakaira Perez’s matter was still not dealt with adequately in 2012. A number of things become clear – the FPMT had no intentions of getting to the bottom of the Jakaira Perez incident. It is also clear that the FPMT must have continued to receive complaints about Dagri, which is why it became necessary to issue reminders to its regional and national coordinators in 2018. Why this 2018 reminder was necessary is suspicious. The pattern of serial sex offenders is almost all similar. They are habitual offenders and will continue to assault women so long as they are shielded and protected like the FPMT has been protecting Dagri. We know for sure that Dagri abused Jajaira Perez in 2011. We know of a 2013 case, and we know that FPMT felt it necessary to remind its regional and national coordinators about Dagri in 2018 and we know that Dagri molested a woman on a plane in 2019. The way Dagri brazenly attacked a woman on a plane in public indicates that he is unafraid and already out of control, thanks to the FPMT’s protection all these years that have emboldened him.
  5. The FPMT’s second statement also makes it very clear that they will not allow an independent investigation. The FPMT is awaiting results of the Indian investigation. In other words, the FPMT is waiting to see if they can get away with liability. The investigation by the Indian police will not cover Jakaira Perez’s case or any cases of Dagri’s abuses in the past. For all intents and purposes, this is history to the FPMT and something they have managed to get away with. As to the “professional assistance” the FPMT alluded to, it will not be a stretch to guess that experts have been engaged to spin the FPMT’s reputation out of the dirt and also the lawyers are ready to defend FPMT. Never mind if people continue to be hurt.

 

Lama Zopa’s attempts to wriggle the FPMT out of
the Dagri mess is nothing but a cheap trick

In an orchestrated move, Lama Zopa the head of the organization issued a second statement on the Dagri Rinpoche scandal. This took place on the same day as the FPMT’s second statement on the same issue.

Characteristic of spin doctors at work Lama Zopa’s first statement was, in essence, telling Dagri’s victims to rejoice that they were sexually abused by a ‘holy being’ by virtue of Dagri’s self-declaration and Lama Zopa’s endorsement.

It would have been difficult for Lama Zopa to change his story after such a bold claim and so in his second statement, Lama Zopa launched into a series of stories, which infer Dagri to be on par with the Buddha Shakyamuni, the Mahasiddha Asanga and the great Getsul Tsembulwa. This itself is designed to silence Dagri’s critics and victims by continuing to imply that they are persecuting a holy being.

But in his second statement Lama Zopa goes further and now directly tells victims and Dagri’s accusers that they have to subdue their own mind. Basically, it is repeat of Lama Zopa’s first statement that is, Dagri is holy being and although he has harmed innocent women, it is the victims who have to subdue their own minds rather than point out the crime and the criminal. Lama Zopa preaches monastic practices that forbid anyone from retaliating to harm inflicted upon them but as to why he would ask lay people to follow monastic rules when monks like Dagri do not have to abide by his vows, is a complete mystery. If anything this reeks of trickery.

To insult victims and Dagri’s critics, Lama Zopa insists that because Dagri’s victims and critics are not enlightened, they are not entitled to investigate Dagri. According to Lama Zopa, Dagri is enlightened and therefore he is exempted from having to obey the laws of the land and observe common standards of ethics. Lama Zopa doesn’t spell it out but the assumption is that he is also enlightened and therefore he knows better about Dagri than anyone else. In Lama Zopa’s world so long as one declares himself to be an enlightened being, he is above the law.

In what is no longer a surprise, Lama Zopa then brought in the Dorje Shugden issue with his own version of Tibetan Buddhist history. Over the past weeks as news of Dagri’s sexual exploits became public, FPMT personnel have attempted to blame Dorje Shugden for the mess the FPMT has dug itself into, but many people saw through the ruse. But right here, we see how mundane a trick Lama Zopa has had to resort to, attempting such a cheap sleight of hand more expected of suburban circus acts than of a supposed high lama, which is to distract attention away from Dagri’s crimes and the FPMT’s complicity by reigniting an old debate about the Dalai Lama’s Dorje Shugden controversy.

It would have been easy enough for Lama Zopa to instruct for an independent investigation to be commissioned. That would have shown good faith and integrity. But instead, Lama Zopa launches into a malformation of facts and issues that basically says that Dagri’s victims have no rights because Dagri is a Buddha and can do as he pleases and Lama Zopa another Buddha endorses his crimes. In Lama Zopa’s world, there is no need to obey laws. When in trouble, blame a deity. Interestingly Lama Zopa fails to explain how a ‘common ghost’ that Dorje Shugden is supposed to be, managed to get Dagri supposedly a Buddha to commit depraved sexual acts on victims, none of whom have any connection with Dorje Shugden.

Both Lama Zopa and the FPMT have now had weeks to take proper remedial actions regarding the Dagri scandal. But with this second statement, it is clear the truth is not going to see the light of day if the FPMT and Lama Zopa can help it. And yet they say Dorje Shugden is destroying the dharma.

 

Dagri Rinpoche is charged!

The State of Himachal Pradesh will be prosecuting Dagri Rinpoche (Dhagri Rinpoche Thuptein Jungchup). They have named him as a defendant, charging him under Indian Penal Code Section 354A for Sexual Harassment and Punishment for Sexual Harassment. The offences are listed as follows:

  1. Sexual harassment of the nature of unwelcome physical contact and advances or a demand or request for sexual favours or showing pornography which is punishable with rigorous imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both.
  2. Sexual harassment of the nature of making sexually coloured remark which is punishable by imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year, or with fine, or with both.

The first hearing was on 23 May and the next hearing is scheduled for 12 June. The case details can be viewed by the public via India’s ecourt services (https://services.ecourts.gov.in/ecourtindia_v6/) by searching for the case or CNR number (HPKA120015502019).

On social media, news that Dagri Rinpoche is being charged with sexual offences has been met with positive response. FPMT should take heed that strong, decisive action against sexual offenders is always well-received by the public, and covering up (as they are doing now) is not only deeply unpopular but morally and ethically wrong.

Update on Dagri’s Case

Dagri Rinpoche’s matter is up for hearing on 12th June 2019 (tuesday). This is following the Indian Police laying formal charges on Dagri under the Indian Penal Code 354A.

It was learned that Dagri’s lawyers sought leave of the court to conduct the hearing ‘in camera’ meaning to say that the hearing would not be open to the public. Obviously Dagri and the FPMT are trying to minimize publicity surrounding the case and hearing.

Dagri’s case has been classified a high profile case due to his connection to the Office of the Dalai Lama and Indian news media are keeping a close watch on proceedings.

 

Dagri Rinpoche stalls court hearing, case adjourned

Dagri Rinpoche’s case was heard in court today (12th June 2019). The hearing, which was scheduled for 10am (North Indian time), was delayed until later in the day.

Dagri Rinpoche has been charged by the Indian Police under the Indian Penal Code 354A for Sexual Harassment and Punishment for Sexual Harassment after he was arrested on 3rd May 2019 for molesting a woman on board an Air India flight from Delhi.

The delay in the court hearing was due to Dagri’s transparent attempts to stall. Amongst other spurious reasons, Dagri insisted that he should have his own Hindi translator, stating that it was necessary for him to defend himself adequately.

Dagri Rinpoche’s next hearing is scheduled for 18th July 2019, over one month away. That should give him enough time to prepare for such a serious hearing.

Evidently, that was a ploy to delay the proceedings as Dagri is well-known to be fluent in Hindi, having lived in India for decades. Dagri could also have prepared for the case beforehand, either informing the court ahead of time or bringing his own translator. After all, it is not like the hearing was scheduled at the last minute, with no time for him to prepare beforehand.

The fact Dagri did not take the court seriously and adequately prepare for his hearing by bringing his own translator, was nothing more than a boldfaced attempt at manipulating the Indian courts. Dagri Rinpoche clearly disrespects the Indian justice system, alongside his total lack of respect for women’s rights. His are not the actions of someone who would be able to prove their innocence in court, where he would be able to get the charges against him dismissed.

At the end of the day’s shenanigans, Dagri Rinpoche’s case had to be adjourned, with the next hearing scheduled for 18th July 2019. Over one month away, that should give Dagri enough time to prepare his own translator.

Dagri Rinpoche has tried very hard to keep the public out of his court hearing, presumably to keep the media away from reporting more news of his crime but it has failed. There are many interested parties, from women’s equality groups to monastic communities and Tibetans-in-exile around the world. Everyone is now watching Dagri Rinpoche’s case to see that justice is served.

 

Mila Rangzen released his video on Dagri case


Or watch on server | download video (right click & save file)

Well-known Tibetan activist and commentator Mila Rangzen, who is based in New York City, USA recently published this video updating Tibetans on the latest news related to Dagri Rinpoche’s court hearing. It is a strong indication that Tibetans remain very interested in the case and will continue to observe its proceedings, outcome and FPMT’s reaction.

FPMT should have monitored Dagri Rinpoche when they first learned about it over a decade ago, and they should have immediately stopped promoting him once allegatons of sexual abuse came to light. If they were the responsible organization that they pretend to be, they would have distanced themselves and disassociated from him, and advised their students not to go for teachings with him or create a connection with him.

Instead, FPMT did none of that, thereby exposing potentially hundreds of women to this sexual predator. The truth is that FPMT harbored and promoted a sexual predator for over a decade and now everybody knows.

 

Dagri Victim Jakaira’s exclusive exposé
to Tibet Star


Or watch on server | download video (right click & save file)

Recently, Tibetan alternative news media contacted Jakaira Perez Valdivia, the sexual assault victim of Dagri Rinpoche and in a tell-all letter, she exposes the emotional difficulties that she has suffered as a result from her standing up to the sexual abuse from Dagri Rinpoche.

Jakaira, who signed off as Jaki, gives an emotional account of how she lost everything, with all her years spent studying to be proficient in the Tibetan language wasted when she got blacklisted by the FPMT, thus losing her career as a translator. She also lost her position in the nunnery, her teachers, friends and worst, her self-esteem.

The letter also repeats her earlier accounts of her knowing of other sexual assault victims and that the FPMT has been continuosly covering up for Dagri Rinpoche.

Transcript of Jakaira’s letter

Dear Tibet Star,

As I mention in the video description,
I didn’t enable the comments
because I am tired of hearing people defending him all these years and I’m just not putting up with this nonsense anymore,

I have already gone through all this before and it wasn’t easy.
I don’t have the physical time
or the emotional space
and energy to deal with people
who want to shame me again and again.

There’s enough harm already
and exposing myself like this
was already a very big step.

I need to protect my emotional stability
and carry on with my own life,
this issue is very absorbing,
for the first three weeks after the news,
I didn’t even have the time to do normal tasks of my daily life.

I need lots of energy at my work,
I need to concentrate,
even kind comments stir up my emotions a lot.
You must understand that that person ruined my life.

Because of the slander I lost everything,
I couldn’t work as a translator in the FPMT centers
after all those years of studying Tibetan.

I could not stay in the nunnery,
my abbess didn’t support me,
and betrayed me by presenting her apologies to him,
like if I was an embarrassment.

I didn’t have much money and
I finally had to give back my vows
to get a normal job in the west,
also, because I couldn’t see myself anymore
as a representative of a system that had failed me.

I lost friends, teachers, and many of the best years of my life.
I became an outcast, my self-esteem was destroyed
and I’m still a bit damaged.
Even though I’ve rebuilt my life from scratch, it wasn’t easy.

I’m lucky to have a new life now,
but most victims are still too traumatized to speak up.
From the other two victims I know of,
one has completely shut down and disappeared,
and the other one has been working on cancelling his teachings here and there (Australia and New Zealand) for years,
but not publicly.

I guess they saw what happened to me at the time
and couldn’t handle it.

I know a total of 6 concrete victims,
5 of which I know personally,
but the trauma is too deep,
they won’t expose themselves like I’ve done.

That is why the nuns from the petition
have requested a private investigation,
so that victims can speak up anonymously
and have their identity protected.

I guess my friend Adelaide has a similar feeling,
she was the only nun at IBD
with 30 monks in her class for almost 13 years.

She was going to be the second geshema after Kelsang Wangmo,
but she had to quit.
She was abused multiple times by monks,
almost raped once, good she knew martial arts.

Yours,
Jaki

 

Nuns send second appeal letter urging
FPMT to conduct an investigation

In an update posted on Change.org’s petition Call for investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Dagri Rinpoche, a second letter was sent to FMPT’s CEO Ven. Roger Kunsang and the FPMT board calling the FPMT to open an impartial investigation of sexual abuse by Dagri Rinpoche in FPMT centers.

Click to enlarge

The senior nuns who started the petition wrote in the update that they “have heard of other women with stories to report, so it is clear that there is a need for third-party professional persons who are experienced in such procedures, and with whom these women can share their experiences anonymously.”

The letter to the FPMT’s CEO and board was ended with them saying, “the Buddhist sangha is entrusted by the Buddha to safeguard the Dharma, and we would be remiss in our duty if we did not continue to call on the FPMT board to take immediate steps to protect the Dharma, restore people’s trust in Tibetan Buddhism, and behave with the compassion and ethical integrity that the world expects of the Buddhadharma. Nothing short of an independent investigation will be sufficient to do that at this point.”

The petition has nearly 3,000 signatures, but since the FPMT’s second update on Dagri Rinpoche on 24th May, there is no news or action announced by the FPMT on what they will do to protect the safety and dignity of women.

 

Dagri stalls court proceedings again today
by asking for another adjournment

Dagri Rinpoche appeared in the Kangra Court No. 2 again today (18th July 2019) supposedly to defend himself against Indian Police’s charges for Sexual Harassment and Punishment for Sexual Harassment (Indian Penal Code 354A).

Click to enlarge

This case was first listed to be heard on 12th June 2019 and then again on 18th July 2019 after Dagri feigned not to understand Hindi and English and begged to have a translator. Clearly that was just a ruse because for years the FPMT has facilitated Dagri’s travels to FPMT centres worldwide to teach in English. He is also well known in Dharamsala to be able to converse in Hindi.

Today, Dagri’s court hearing was stalled again when it became a problem that the Prosecutor did not bring along a translator. The case was made that both parties – Dagri’s side and the Prosecutor’s side – should each have a translator to avoid any mistranslation. Why this was not raised previously is dubious.

In any case, Dagri’s lawyer Mr Neraj Mehra was instructed to agree to the postponement. The next hearing is now set for 26th August 2019.

This itself shows that Dagri is not confident of his own innocence.

More information will be posted here in due course so stay tuned.

 

FPMT Board says YES to third party investigation into sex harassment allegations, Lama Zopa (still) says NO

Inside sources within FPMT have revealed that the FPMT board at their recent Board meeting had resolved in favor of conducting independent third party investigations into Dagri Rinpoche’s sexual abuse allegations. Insiders also say that FPMT’s CEO Ven. Roger Kunsang defied the FPMT’s Board resolution and approached Lama Zopa, who is the organization’s spiritual head, for a mo (dice) divination.

Click to enlarge

Lama Zopa’s mo divination showed that the third party investigation would be “VERY BAD” for FPMT and because of it, the FPMT CEO defied the Board’s decision and vetoed the investigation.

What it really means by Lama Zopa’s mo divination is that Dagri Rinpoche IS guilty of sexual harassment which the third party investigation would reveal and confirm, and that is why the investigation would be very bad for FPMT.

As a leading Buddhist organization with centers around the world, FPMT has a moral responsibility to keep the public and their members safe and therefore FPMT should not continue to cover up cases of sexual harassment and protect FPMT teachers who abuse their positions.

FPMT CEO and Lama Zopa’s decision to withhold a third party investigation is a decision that will allow FPMT teachers who are sex predators to continue, putting FPMT’s female members and the public in danger of more sexual harassment.

    Will the FPMT Stand by its Code of Ethics?

    Saturday, 11 May 2019
    By Joanne Clark

    For those of us who have held hope that the Foundation For the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) might provide some leadership in resolving troubles of abuse within Western Tibetan Buddhist Centres, this has been a hard week. We have held hope because the FPMT’s code of ethics, signed by all teachers teaching at FPMT centres, has demonstrated a clarity about students’ needs not seen in other Tibetan Buddhist institutions.

    Here is an example:

    “FPMT is committed to promoting safe environments wherein the dignity of every individual is respected. Everyone participating in FPMT-related activities has the right and shall be free from harassment of any type, be it sexual harassment, intimidation, bullying, or other forms of harassment. Everyone coming into contact with the FPMT network shall be treated with dignity and respect.”

    And this:

    “Sexual relationships between Dharma teachers and students while a student is attending the teacher’s teachings, course or retreat are prohibited, and are strongly discouraged at all other times as long as there is a Dharma teacher-student relationship. Please see below for a policy specific to Dharma teachers. Others in positions of authority are also strongly discouraged from entering into sexual relationships in situations where there may be a real or perceived power imbalance. As well, no teacher, volunteer, staff member, or other representative of the hosting center shall make sexual advances to any participant during a teaching, course or retreat.”

    This is the clear language students have been seeking from other Buddhist organizations. Sadly, however, a woman has recently claimed that the FPMT failed to honestly and appropriately address her allegations that Dagri Rinpoche, a teacher at FPMT centres, sexually assaulted her while she was a nun at Thosamling some years ago. This claim followed a recent allegation made to police in India by a woman who claimed that Dagri Rinpoche molested her while on a plane. According to The Tribune Newspaper (India), “the Gaggal police detained him before he was released on bail.” There are also claims that more women have been abused by him, though these have not been made public or verified.

    In the first testimony, that given by Jakaira Perez Valdivi on Utube video, there is a disturbing description of the effort made by Dagri Rinpoche and the FPMT institution to undermine her story, effectively silencing her. She claims that Dagri Rinpoche lied to others about having apologized to her and that the FPMT labelled his actions as “compassionate massage” and not sexual at all. According to Jakaira’s story, his actions included fondling her breasts and pushing his genitals against her—not something that can be called “compassionate massage.” According to her, he apologized to her, but then lied and claimed that she apologized to him.

    At best, the FPMT has failed to validate her concerns and failed to resolve a situation that has badly damaged her wellbeing and spiritual path. At worst, they are covering up a crime. At best, Dagri Rinpoche’s actions, as described by Jakaira and the recent allegation from the woman on the plane, disqualify him from ever teaching in an FPMT centre. At worst, they are criminal. Will he continued to teach at FPMT centres? Why has nothing been done to resolve the situation for Jakaira and why has he continued to teach at FPMT centres?

    The FPMT say that these two incidents did not occur at an FPMT facility, project or institution and so the ethics policy does not apply. However, he has continued to teach at FPMT centres and the failure of this institution to act responsibly in the context of carefully screening their teachers and hearing the needs of survivors demonstrates a lack of fiduciary care and due diligence in my opinion. These problems are not fixed by simply finding loopholes.

    And this is the big problem. In the current climate, with students from Rigpa, Shambhala and other Buddhist institutions still traumatized from disclosures of sexual abuse by their leaders, every Buddhist institution is called upon to be diligent regarding the behaviours of teachers. There should be no compromising on this, no finding loopholes or making excuses or quick fixes. It is one thing for a student to come to terms with the fact that a well-respected Dharma teacher is abusive. However, when the harm becomes institutionalized, when Tibetan Buddhist institutions fail to come forward with appropriate measures of validation, compassion and resolve, and continue to validate the integrity of that teacher, then the situation turns critical. This has happened in Rigpa, Shambhala and too many other Buddhist centres who are scrambling only now to put together flimsy codes of ethics.

    The following letter from within the FPMT, from the Center Services Director of the FPMT International Office in Portland Oregon, reflects this sentiment. It appears that there is little appetite within the International Office for simply finding those loopholes in the Ethics Policy:

    Dear Friends,

    It has come to our attention that there are newspaper stories and social media accounts circulating stating that a lady in India has made a report to the Indian police accusing Dagri Rinpoche of molesting her on a flight in India.

    As Dagri Rinpoche is currently an FPMT registered teacher, we at International Office are following this story closely and awaiting any additional updates and reports about the outcome of the accusation.

    We understand that Dagri Rinpoche believes he is innocent of the accusation and is preparing a personal statement in response to the accusation.

    Although the alleged event did not take place at an FPMT center, if the investigation results do determine that the accusation is correct, then we would follow the guidelines described under Administering the ETHICAL POLICY, in the ETHICS AND ETHICAL POLICY section of the Affiliates Area and it could impact Dagri Rinpoche’s inclusion on the FPMT registered teachers list, as per the FPMT Ethical Policy.

    While we are awaiting any conclusions on this story, we send our prayers for all parties involved in and affected by this story.

    We are sure that this will remind all of the importance of our responsibility to uphold ethical behaviour, especially by those of us who manage and teach at FPMT centers, projects and services.

    Warmly,
    Claire

    Claire Isitt
    Center Services Director

    Statements such as this from within the FPMT’s establishment are encouraging. Indeed, the FPMT statement on the need for centres to take strong measures in instances of abuse is clear and strong within their ethical policy, though perhaps it can be amended to account for this situation. If it had been followed, Jakaira might have received the validation she needed. Here is how they describe those measures:

    Misconduct on the part of persons in positions of power or trust can undermine the integrity of the organization, causing demoralization and loss of faith. Hence, the behaviours described in the Ethical Policy below are prohibited, and a center, project, or service’s grievance procedures should be put into effect if a breach occurs.

    Each individual in a position of authority, within their area of responsibility in the FPMT organization, is also required to act on any appearance or complaint of misconduct. It is crucial that such individuals identify and express concerns about conduct that may be harmful, so that procedures for dealing with problems can be implemented.

    FPMT’s Ethical Policy applies to all activities, interactions, or communications including those on-line, on social media, by telephone, in person, or by any other means as long as the activity, interaction, or communication in question concerns or pertains to FPMT-related actions, duties, or responsibilities.

    We also need to be clear that we should have very little reason to doubt Jakaira’s story. In fact, if we hear FPMT make such a statement as to the “compassionate massage” of a monk alone with a nun (as she alleges they said), that should be enough to cause us to question their viewpoint! And statistics show that false allegations of sexual assault are rare and that most victims of sexual assault choose not to report — because they fear not being believed and becoming re-traumatized by a brutal system. These statistics are important because until women are believed and validated, there will be no change to a very widespread culture of abuse in institutions both East and West. We are in a “MeToo” movement where the problem will simply not go away without institutional change, without acknowledgement from all concerned that there is a systemic, serious problem.

    Last November, some 130 former and current students of Tibetan Buddhism signed a letter addressed to over forty lamas from all four lineages. We translated this letter into Tibetan. Attached to this letter was a translation into Tibetan of another letter, that written by eight former senior students of Sogyal Lakhar, in which they outlined his serious physical, psychological and sexual abuses over decades. We asked only one question in the letter. We simply wanted to know whether or not lamas found these behaviours acceptable—e.g. behaviours of beating and sexually abusing students, using student donations to live a lavish lifestyle etc. As of this writing, six months later, we have had only two responses.¹

    We wrote that letter with the intention of receiving better clarity on how we, as long-time Dharma students, could move forward on our spiritual paths after abusive situations—and how we could insure better safety within Western Dharma Centres. We neither want to be abused on our spiritual paths nor do we not want to practice in an environment of abuse. Many of us sat silent while Sogyal Lakhar spent hours of his teaching time viciously maligning and insulting students. We are horrified that we turned our back on harm as we sat through these tirades. The letter was written sincerely, from our hearts, with no ulterior motive other than stopping harm and knowing where safety lay. To many of us, the lack of response from forty lamas is in fact a very brutal and non-compassionate response. A lack of caring.

    Tahlia Newland and I also wrote a letter to HH Dalai Lama in which we told him that we had written these letters to lamas and why. We explained also that the Vajrayana had been used to justify abusive behaviors and to silence students with threats of hell if they objected. We explained that many were questioning the Vajrayana now and many needed better clarity. We asked him to please bring the matter up at the meeting scheduled for Tibetan Buddhist leaders last November. We received a response from his office two days later, asking us to forward the matter to the Kalon of Religion and Culture and to CC His Holiness. We did that. Shortly after, the meeting was postponed and we fear that now, there will be little hope of this topic being raised if the meeting is ever held. The kalon has not responded to us either.

    I believe that abusive behaviors within the context of the Vajrayana make this situation particularly critical—and particularly in need of strong leadership that can provide clarity. Though some FPMT teachers are amongst those who haven’t replied to our letter, many of us have nonetheless held out a hope for this organization because of its strongly worded ethics code—and because of the responsible and thorough approach to Dharma in the FPMT educational programs, their responsible approach to the Vajrayana.

    I would like to add to this my desire that FPMT seek now to sincerely and compassionately reach out with support to Jakaira Perez Valdivi and others who might have made similar claims of harm from FPMT teachers that are not known to us. Publicly, a statement from the FPMT on how they intend to address this situation and others like it would be very helpful towards insuring that a growing group of disillusioned Dharma students do not lose trust in the good intentions of the FPMT. Trust demands better transparency and this has been lacking. Most of all, I truly believe that the code of silence that has ruled within Tibetan Buddhist culture in the West needs to end if the Dharma in the Tibetan Buddhist Tradition is to thrive.

  4. In this video Adelaide Foster counters Dagri Rinpoche’s letter rebuking the sexual allegations against him. But as she says clearly in Tibetan, he is not telling the truth in what he wrote.

  5. Looks like there are now a lot of activists taking notice of Dagri Rinpoche’s molestation of women for decades and FPMT’s cover up of the situation. This letter is a call for action to be taken to protect others. Comment taken from here: https://www.dagririnpoche.com/dagri-rinpoche-fpmt-cover-up/#comment-2

  10. More victims and witnesses are speaking up against Dagri Rinpoche. Attached here are two more testimonies in support of Jakaila (Kunzang), the Spanish lady whom Dagri Rinpoche molested years ago.

  11. FPMT’s Head Office has finally caved in to public pressure and issued a statement, which is very interesting because it shows clearly that Jakaira Perez Valdiva (a.k.a Kunsang) of Spain was correct. She filed a report with the Dalai Lama’s Private Office and they held a meeting to mediate between her and Dagri Rinpoche (a.k.a Thupten Lhundrup Tenpai Gyaltsen / Thupten Jangchup). So, Jakaira Perez Valdiva was molested by Dagri Rinpoche and both the FPMT and Dalai Lama’s Private Office knew about it and they hushed it up.

    Nearly a week after Dagri Rinpoche was arrested for molesting another woman, an Indian lady on a Delhi-Dharamsala flight, the statement was released announcing that they have suspended Dagri Rinpoche from their list of official teachers. This means that Dagri Rinpoche will no longer be allowed to teach in or visit any FPMT centres. The suspension shows that FPMT believe the allegations of the women who are speaking up against Dagri Rinpoche.

    1. It is one thing to know about it, but it is another thing to hush it up and keep it quiet. The horrible thing about this whole issue is that the FPMT, instead of eliminating him from their list of teachers at an earlier time, continues to send him all over the world, allowing many more women to become his unsuspecting victims. For this, FPMT is wrong and they should issue a public apology and own up. In the truest sense of the word, what they are doing is a crime, punishable by law and in some countries punishable by sentencing to jail.

    Because it was in India and they know that India is somewhat corrupt, they were able to pay off certain authorise and keep it quiet, after all Ms. Jakaira did report it to the police. Now that everyone is back in their respective countries and there is the power of social media, FPMT has been shamed into acknowledging everything they knew happened. But they continue to send him on their teaching rounds at their centres.

    2. FPMT should have long ago suspended and disqualified Dagri Rinpoche from teaching, which they did not. And it is surprising that they would allow their own members around the world to be subjected to this type of blatant sexual abuse. It was reported in Dharamsala that many western nuns were molested and accosted by Dagri Rinpoche, but the FPMT and Dalai Lama’s Private Office kept quiet about it. Now more women, victims and friends are speaking up and not keeping quiet anymore. It is extremely bad news for FPMT and is something that will not go away in the near future but continue to grow. FPMT from now on will be seen as an organisation that harbours sex predators and does nothing about it, but covers it up and keeps it hush-hush.

    3. The very fact that FPMT Head Office has suspended Dagri Rinpoche from their list of teachers, it shows they believe the allegations made by these women who are speaking up against Dagri Rinpoche. Although FPMT said they temporarily suspended him, it has to be a permeant suspension instead. And FPMT better go to the respective countries that the offenses were made in and make official reports with the authorities there, if they want to save themselves. If FPMT continues to do nothing to placate the public they will lose even more credibility. So far FPMT have already lost a lot of credibility, I wonder if they risk losing more? Dagri Rinpoche is a sexual predator of the highest degree and more victims are going to speak out if the FPMT sits on the fence or tries to protect themselves. It will all be revealed. FPMT better take harsh measures to show they have done something and perhaps when the victims hear this, the healing process may begin.

  12. Two more close friends of Jakaira Perez Valdiva (a.k.a Kunsang) have come out in support of her and have decided to speak up. Ms. Jakaira, a woman of Spanish descent, recently published a tell-all expose of her abuse at the hands of Dagri Rinpoche (a.k.a Thupten Lhundrup Tenpai Gyaltsen / Thupten Jangchup) over 10 years ago in Dharamsala, when she was a nun.

    These two friends are credible witnesses and they were present when Ms. Jakaira spoke with the Dalai Lama’s Private Office, FPMT and Dagri Rinpoche. This shows that Ms. Jakaira, when she was a nun, was really accosted, molested, and sexually manhandled by Dagri Rinpoche. These two women have come out to stand for their friend’s rights, and to speak about a crime. This proves that Ms. Jakaira did indeed tell the truth.

    The FPMT and Lama Zopa covered all this up, along with the Dalai Lama’s Private Office and this is quite despicable. The Dalai Lama’s Private Office and FPMT rely heavily on western donations to survive and pay their bill all these years. Western donations allow FPMT to live in the lap of luxury and have their big temples and golden statues. Yet, when one of their registered teachers abuses a westerner, instead of paying back the kindness of westerners by terminating Dagri Rinpoche and ensure that he is taken to the law, they hide it. Lama Zopa is coming out with advice for Dagri Rinpoche’s students outside of the monastery on how to view him now, amidst the revelation of the scandal. Why would Lama Zopa teach people how to view Dagri Rinpoche if Dagri Rinpoche was not guilty? You can see that Lama Zopa believes that Dagri Rinpoche is guilty. More witnesses will come out of the woodwork to further the truth which has been revealed and it will only get bigger.

  15. If Lama Zopa Rinpoche did not believe that Dagri Rinpoche was guilty of sexually abusing his students, why did he then issue a statement of advice to all his students on how to view the offender?

    In response to a swell of complaints about Dagri Rinpoche’s molestation charges and the FPMT’s cover-up, Lama Zopa dictated an eloquent Dharma talk.

    But if you listen to it very carefully, after a few lines, Lama Zopa is already distracting you away from the real issue, which is the fact that Dagri Rinpoche has been exposed for molesting and abusing women for a long time.

    Lama Zopa wants us to view Dagri Rinpoche as an extraordinary being and close our mind to what really happened. However, if we viewed all sexual predators as extraordinary beings and keep up that faith, then we don’t need the law at all. Everyone who commits a crime is henceforth to be regarded as being ‘extraordinary’ and we are just simply to hold them with a good view. Then people like Dagri Rinpoche can continue to commit more crimes without any limits or restrictions.

    But the truth of the matter is, whether Dagri Rinpoche is an extraordinary being or an ordinary being, is not the issue. The issue is that he inflicted criminal acts upon ordinary beings who only have ordinary views and, as a result, suffer very much like all ordinary people do when they are harmed. How can you tell ordinary people to have extraordinary views about a sex crime that has hurt them and shames their family?

    So Lama Zopa should address the actual problem and “call a spade a spade”. And he must address the issue at hand directly, that is, Dagri Rinpoche is dangerous and he has harmed many people. Lama Zopa should advise his students and all victims to speak up and report what has been done to them. Lama Zopa should create a compassionate environment for the victims to speak up and receive support at a difficult time. Victims should not be told to view Dagri Rinpoche’s actions as extraordinary and just forget the whole thing because this will allow Dagri Rinpoche to continue doing what he has been doing and harm more women. I shudder at that thought of Dagri Rinpoche having complete immunity for all the things he could do to female students and nuns.

    Shall we now apply the logic in Lama Zopa’s speech to all future victims of Dagri Rinpoche’s exploits that he will commit eventually and say, “Hey, when he molests you, you just think about it this way, okay?” “You just view him as an extraordinary and allow him to abuse you because he had two dreams about himself going to Gaden heaven and being some deity.” “Because of these dreams, he is an extraordinary being and whatever sexual molestation that he inflicts on you should be taken happily.” Shall we say this to all future victims of Dagri Rinpoche to pre-empt them?

    If so why not send this letter to all future victims of Dagri Rinpoche, because there is going to be a lot more of them?

    Why not send this letter to every female Buddhist aspirant who will become Dagri Rinpoche’s student through FPMT, and tell them that when they get molested next time, to just think about his sexual assault in this way and not get angry. Don’t report him. Just keep offering yourself up to Dagri Rinpoche because whatever he’s doing to your body is beneficial to you! Shall we say this to all future female students of Dagri Rinpoche? No, we should not. Lama Zopa’s advice to students is not appropriate towards the victims and their families. The onus of responsibility should be on lamas to behave properly, not to harm their students physically and spiritually. It should not be on new and aspiring Buddhists to accept being abused and then told to maintain a pure view of their abuser.

    Lama Zopa Rinpoche's Advice to Students of Dagri Rinpoche

  16. Facebook Users Reacted to Dagri Rinpoche’s Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Since Dagri Rinpoche was reported to the Indian police earlier this month for molesting an Indian lady, two other victims have decided to speak up. Dagri Rinpoche’s history of sexually harassing women has attracted many negative comments from social media users such as Facebook. Not only they condemn Dagri Rinpoche’s inappropriate conduct, but also FPMT cover-up of the issue.

  17. Is Lama Zopa’s Response to Dagri Rinpoche’s Sexual Misconduct Allegations Acceptable?

    Lama Zopa’s response to Dagri Rinpoche sexual misconduct allegations disappointed many. Instead of consoling the victims and addressing the confusion, chaos, and heartache caused by Dagri Rinpoche’s inappropriate behavior, Lama Zopa discussed Dagri Rinpoche’s spiritual attainments. Please find below the reaction to Lama Zopa’s advice on the matter.

  18. The Public React to Dagri Rinpoche Sexual Misconduct Allegation

    Things look bleak for Dagri Rinpoche. After Ms. Shin Young Sun, Dagri Rinpoche’s third victim shared about how Dagri Rinpoche molested her ten years ago, his upcoming teaching sessions in London and Leeds are canceled.

    In the meantime, Sera Jey Tsawa Khangtsen, where Dagri Rinpoche came from, tried to deflect from the issue by claiming that this is a Shugden issue. Another evidence that Sera Jey Tsawa Khangtsen does not have any intention to console and address the victims of that. Their main concern is looking good.

    Alison Ong originally posted this comment below to the Facebook fanpage of the Vajrayana Buddhist Council of Malaysia (VBCM). They purport to be the council of Malaysia for all Vajrayanists but very few people in Malaysia believe in them, and even fewer support them.

    Alison’s comment was in response to Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s statement which used the Dharma to whitewash and cover up sexual abuses committed by Dagri Rinpoche, a registered teacher in his organization Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).

    VBCM have traditionally been extremely discriminatory towards others but in this Dagri incident where he has been found to sexually assault women, VBCM have been silent. They have not spoken up against Dagri Rinpoche or the FPMT who covered it up for 10 years.

    In response to Alison Ong’s comment above, Nicole Sia Mei Yee, one of VBCM’s members and supporters posted this comment below.

    [[NICOLE'S RESPONSE]]
    If you think you are so smart, reveal yourself. Don’t create phantom profiles ( 1 person create multiple profiles on social media ) with the intention to insult. This is the attitude of a coward. Characteristics of coward people,

    1) Create phantom profile with a Lama picture or some bombastic Tibetan name.
    2) Used an innocent person’s picture as profile picture
    3) Raised concern over certain issue. Pretending to be civic minded but with bad intention in their cow brain
    4) Attention seeker. Always strive to be in the limelight
    5) Dare not show themselves in public or be brave to comment fearing they will be hit or cannot bear the humiliation

    its obvious you have low self esteem.

    You this kind of people, you forget the root teachings of Buddhism but try to claim like you are very concerned over social moral crimes. Internally you know nuts. In your heart, when you see innocent lives being claim by ISIS, you think

    - oh my! i wonder where they will be reborn next life
    - why don’t they have dharma inside them
    - i wish i can help the innocent victims

    but you fail to understand, you yourself is planting the seed of hatred. You yourself is planting negative imprint in people. You think you are doing a great job alerting the public but have you analyse yourself what you see and read on social media, it it verified? Have you think from all directions? Is the news real or just false claim?

    Buddhist organisations and women leaders all over the world like Tzu Chi, Fo Guang, Haitao Life, Tenzin Palmo, Plum Village, Srawasti Abbey and many more are striving to inspire and educate young adults to ease their mind. Alleviating the burden in their heads. Help them from depression, suicide, family issue via their programs and social work. And here you are waking up every morning checking out whats the best way to inflict hurtful comments and finds it amusing. Think about your actions and look at yourself in the mirror. Compare your face with people from the positive side.

    People like you, when you can’t achieve what you want, when your actions goes out hand and you land yourself in deep trouble, you think “aisk…i think Buddhism is not the suitable religion for me, the centre is not suitable for me to practice, Nobody help me when i am in trouble. So corrupted and unfair. Not only that, my boss and colleague in office also abuse me. Why am i suffering all this? I think i better switch to another religion and start all over again.”

    Trust me, people like you will never find happiness in any religion you embrace as long as you have a negative intention inside you. Besides that, you wont even find happiness in your love relationship or smooth undertaking in your career or business. Think about it.

    Lastly, to be fair. VBCM is a non profit organisation run by volunteers. They don’t receive any form of salary and also like any lay person have a family and career to look after. VBCM don’t receive any strong support from government like Fo Guang Shan or Maha Vihara. Don’t expect them to take lead in whatsoever moral issues and act like an activist. If they run into sticky situations, are you there to help? You ask yourself personally, are you a good leader yourself in your personal life, as a partner, as a parent and career before you insult organisations for their poor leadership. VBCM is just a representative of a small Buddhist minority group within Malaysia with His Holiness, The 14th Dalai Lama and many more leaders from the 4 traditions as their guide.

    Alison penned the comments below in response to Nicole Sia Mei Yee’s attempt to protect the VBCM’s refusal to speak up against Dagri Rinpoche although the Indian police arrested him for sexual assault.

    To Nicole,

    I am a real person. Whether you know me or not doesn’t matter. What matters is what I have to say, which is of value, to protect our sisters and daughters from bad people regardless of what their titles are.

    Things have happened to me before in Dharma centers but when we speak up, they silence you. You tell me to reveal myself but I am not the one hiding. Why don’t you reveal more about yourself on your Facebook account? Why not? Why can’t everyone see your profile or any details about you?

    But most importantly, and let’s not distract from the issue at hand, but this is not about me. The issue is about the Vajrayana Buddhist Council of Malaysia (VBCM) and why it failed to do the right thing, and why the VBCM promoted a sex offender and could not tell a proper monk from a sex offender. THAT’S the issue.

    You are right, VBCM is only a very small group. The VBCM is a group of lay people who have very little real knowledge of the Dharma. They have no spiritual qualifications and no training and background whatsoever to be deserving of being a “Buddhist council”. And yet, the VBCM does not behave humbly or beneficially but instead has a history of having a big mouth, poking into the business of other centers and hurting many people in the past. Why is the VBCM even trying to control Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia when it has no right and no qualifications to do so? No one is asking VBCM to regulate, watch over, mediate, police, comment, update and govern on Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. No one asked them to do it and they are just doing it on their own. Anyways, they are not even doing a good job because they are not qualified. There is no need for VBCM in Malaysia whatsoever. People do not even have enough time to run their own centers, find donations to pay bills, upkeep and so forth, so why should they donate manpower to VBCM? They already have enough to do in their own centers.

    The VBCM committee is always the same, with the same people voting each other into the committee all the time and this has been witnessed firsthand, that is why VBCM never grows. VBCM’s current committee wants to hold on to their damaging policies and the way they are now, and never allow change or growth. Hence they keep the committee members rotating just among themselves. This is how they conspire with one another to hang on to what little “power” they wish to exercise. Don’t forget Losang Dragpa Center’s (LDC) Pek Chee Hen is also involved with VBCM and LDC. Of course you only promote each other.

    You are also wrong to say they are volunteers. People like Ms. Tee have been paid a high salary by the Kuan Yin Contemplative Order (KYCO)/Tony Wong for many decades now, including travel expenses. So in fact, none of them are working for free unless they have some way of making money fall out of the sky for them. And what do they do to earn this money? What do they do to deserve being a “Buddhist council”? Absolutely nothing except to cover up for sex monks, discriminate against teachers, centers and practices.

    VBCM covered up the sex monk Shi Zhao Liang who was proven to be guilty of his sexual assaults on young boys. The VBCM did nothing and said nothing. First, they said Shi Zhao Liang is not a Vajrayana monk so it’s not their business. But protecting young and innocent children should be EVERYONE’S business so that was just a lame excuse. Now they also do not say anything about the Dagri ‘Rinpoche’ sex scandal. Isn’t Dagri ‘Rinpoche’ a Vajrayana monk? So how come the VBCM is still quiet? How come the VBCM did not hesitate to promote a sex offender on their Facebook page and when the person they promoted was exposed for his sexual offences, VBCM just remained quiet and hid? Why didn’t the VBCM take responsibility for promoting the wrong person? Why do they not apologize? Look how little ‘likes’ and comments they get on their Facebook page and their name is the VAJRAYANA BUDDHIST COUNCIL of ALL Malaysia? Why is that? Because they have not been doing a good job and people see through that and do not support. We see that and we do not support, and we save everything they do and watch them carefully.

    You say so much and yet clearly the intention is to deflect attention from the fact that Dagri ‘Rinpoche’ is a confirmed molester of women. Three female victims have come out. They and their witnesses have all spoken publicly and are confident enough to show their faces to back up their testimonies. If what they said were untrue, would they have shown their faces and opened themselves up to be sued? FPMT is rich and a big organization and can sue easily so this is not something made up or imagined. Lama Zopa and the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) knew about all the many reports regarding Dagri and kept it quiet for many years. Lama Zopa even told people not to talk about it. Dagri has given initiations, teachings, commentaries and transmissions and so many people are now lost and don’t know what do. They have lost faith in Dagri because they trusted him, took refuge with him, donated to him, donated to his monastery and his khamtsen (Tsawa Khamtsen) and now they are lost. Think of them. There are many more victims in the spiritual sense besides the three women who have come out. All these invitations, empowerments and teachings carry no blessings because Dagri broke his vows and so everything he has given is void and invalid. Dagri is simply not trustworthy. So the issue here is Dagri and why FPMT, LDC and VBCM covered for him. Just to let you know, there are other monk teachers in FPMT organization that have had inappropriate relationships with female students and touched female members, that have been hushed up. FPMT Amitabha Buddhist Center (ABC) in Singapore has had many students leave due to this happening with their resident teacher and it was hushed up. Many of them are very angry and now looking for ways to make this public.

    So you should not be asking me why I am speaking up. You should be asking VBCM and LDC why they wanted to bring this type of monster into our country to molest our sisters and daughters. Are you agreeable to sex predators coming to our country and assaulting our sisters and daughters? Is that what you want? Of course we dare to speak up. And it does not matter if how we speak up is agreeable to you or not. In this Internet age, everything we say can be easily verified if you do some light research. Lama Zopa even came up with a statement of how to ‘view’ Dagri’s offences in the last few days. Why? Because Dagri is guilty and Lama Zopa knows that. But to avoid liability in spiritual, legal and reputational terms, Lama Zopa has to advise victims and concerned people how to conveniently ‘view’ the situations or it will become a massive PR disaster for FPMT and LDC. He has to advise people in a way to placate their anger, hurt and loss of faith. It is not working though. Many are speaking up against Lama Zopa unfortunately. Just go to his Facebook page and read the comments, if they have not been deleted by now.

    [[Continuation of Alison Ong's reply]]
    On the Dagri scandal and on promoting a sex predator, VBCM is as quiet as mouse. But in the past, they tried to act like ‘authorities’ of Tibetan Buddhism. What gives the VBCM the right to say who is good and who is not good, and which center and teacher is genuine or not genuine? Which practice is blessed or not? What is the VBCM’s so-called authority or expertise based on? Just because they have attended a few teachings and taken a few pictures with the Dalai Lama does not give them the right to do anything in Malaysia. Many people take pictures with the Dalai Lama but that does not mean they immediately become qualified authorities in Tibetan Buddhism. The Dalai Lama has taken pictures with mass murderers like Shoko Asahara who is also a cult leader. The Dalai Lama has also taken pictures with Keith Raniere, another cult leader. Both are now in jail. As I said, just because you take photos with Dalai Lama does not authorize you to govern the Tibetan Buddhist followers in Malaysia. It also does not give you instant wisdom. You make mistakes too. VBCM likes to splash their pictures taken with the Dalai Lama all over their unsteady website (sometimes it exists and sometimes it’s gone) and Facebook pages. They do this all the time to fool the Malaysian public into thinking that they are so holy, so learned and have the Dalai Lama’s backing. Well they are not holy, not learned and the Dalai Lama will take pictures with everyone, even his security guards. Splashing their pictures all over the place on social media does not convince the public that VBCM has any authority to judge and sanction any teacher, tradition, center, temple, practice and tradition. VBCM committee are just ordinary lay persons who are not Dharma teachers and not knowledgable. It will do them well to remain silent and just practice the Dharma they claim to protect. Even the great monks of Brickfields who are learned masters from Sri Lanka meet all monks of all traditions, peoples, centers, traditions and do not discriminate nor do they criticize, and they are real sangha and learned. If they do not discriminate, who are VBCM to do so? Ms. Tee Siew Seet, Mr. Pek Chee Hen and so forth are the core of VBCM and Ms. Tee likes to hide behind other committee members of VBCM to do the dirty works for her so she does not get into trouble and make her Sifu Tony Wong look bad.

    VBCM has no knowledge, learning and authority to be the VAJRAYANA BUDDHIST COUNCIL OF MALAYSIA. You are right, they are not backed by any of our Government Departments because they are not qualified to be backed up. The VBCM is not backed up by anything and even you can see that it is nothing but a shell. Many of us will not keep silent about VBCM because they have no authority to judge other teachers, centers and lineages in Malaysia. They have no right to say who is bad and who is good. I have as much right as the VBCM but I don’t interfere in matters that do not concern me. The VBCM has in the past opposed centers inside and outside Malaysia and have tried to sabotage teachers trying to come into Malaysia or within Malaysia. What gives them that right? If they have the right because they are a member of the public, then so do I. I don’t need a ‘big’ name and big banner to say what is right and wrong. I only need to speak the truth and without fear. Anyway, on what basis does the VBCM decide which lama is good or bad? On what grounds and guidelines? And with what qualifications do they judge by? Just a few committee members ‘certifying’ and ‘authorizing’ which lama and center is good or bad in Malaysia? That’s absurd and fake. And we are supposed to follow what these unqualified fellows dictate and ignore our rights as citizens of our free nation? But when a lama is found out to be sexually molesting women and VBCM has promoted these lamas past and present, they remain quiet. Cowards that they are.

    The people behind VBCM only dare to say things anonymously on Facebook. They only post as VBCM and do not reveal who is doing the postings. This is why none of the committee post the same things on their own Facebook pages. And why is there no transparency? Which of the committee have been deleting critical comments, which one of them have been hiding comments they don’t like? Which one of them deleted comments that shared facts that the VBCM doesn’t want the public to know? Which one of the committee is promoting this lama or that center? No one knows which person from within VBCM is doing this on their Facebook page, so they are anonymous and act while hiding behind anonymity. They should identify themselves at the end of each post and state who they are and take responsibility and be ready to be held accountable. So they are the ones that are anonymous and they have a banner of being a council? How can council members hide?

    VBCM acts like a commercial marketing company and all they do is promote lamas on their Facebook pages without any care or screening. On the one hand, they presume to tell others who is a proper lama and yet evidently some have turned out to be sex offenders but VBCM keeps quiet. VBCM is not qualified to manage Vajrayana Buddhism in any way. No one is qualified in Malaysia to do so and no center should do so, lest people start looking deeper into them. Even if VBCM is claiming to carry out the Dalai Lama’s wishes, they are not qualified to do so. The Dalai Lama’s advices, wishes and concerns do not need to be enforced by anyone. It is up to the individual to follow them or not. Buddhism is an open religion and not militaristic or controlling so don’t make it that way. Buddhism is not like the Vatican where the Pope controls everything. The Dalai Lama is not the Pope and he has no Vatican. We Malaysians have full religious freedom and the Vajrayana teachings we follow are up to us. Although I respect the Dalai Lama very much, I do not have to follow everything he says. I have my own discerning wisdom, intelligence and free will. By not following everything that the Dalai Lama says does not make me his enemy. So don’t make me his enemy. It just simply makes me a proud citizen of Malaysia who exercises my free choice.

    The question everyone should ask over and over again is who authorized the VBCM to judge who is good and not good. Just because they claim they follow the Dalai Lama’s teachings does not give them the right or qualification to be a moral compass. If VBCM are such good followers of the Dalai Lama and REALLY PRACTICED WHAT HE TAUGHT, the committee of the VBCM would be highly attained already. They should be healing people, they should be advanced in their meditations and they should be teaching the Dharma to many people by now. None of that is happening. That means the people in the VBCM don’t practice well and they are just like the rest of us. NOT PERFECT. In that case, they should not pretend that they are better than the rest of us and tell us what gurus we should follow or not follow.

  23. (Part 5)

    Alison penned the comments below in response to Nicole Sia Mei Yee’s attempt to protect the VBCM’s refusal to speak up against Dagri Rinpoche although the Indian police arrested him for sexual assault. VBCM and their co-conspirator Losang Dragpa Center have traditionally been extremely discriminatory towards others but in this Dagri incident where he has been found to sexually assault women, they have been silent. They have not spoken up against Dagri Rinpoche or the FPMT who covered it up for 10 years.

    The original comment exchange may be found on VBCM’s Facebook Fanpage but be warned, VBCM has a history of deleting or hiding posts because they do not believe in speaking the truth: https://www.facebook.com/ONEvbcm/posts/10156597455989335

    [[Continuation of Alison Ong's reply]]
    If the VBCM had any qualifications or if had any decency or sense of civic responsibility, it would not have promoted a dangerous sex offender like Dagri. What the VBCM did was just wrong. It was dangerous for the VBCM to do that. How can anyone trust the VBCM and what they say now? VBCM making that mistake shows they are not qualified to screen teachers coming into Malaysia. They are not qualified to be a council of any sort. They should keep quiet and practice Dharma deeply instead of trying to be a council and assume to tell the rest of us what to do. Dangerous. They told us to get teachings from Dagri and look how that worked out. It worked out badly. More and more witnesses are speaking out. Dagri is a molester and preys on innocent women while hiding behind maroon robes. Dangerous. Because the VBCM makes dangerous mistakes, I as a member of the public will speak up and report. In fact, everyone should be asking the VBCM why it promoted a sex predator and then when exposed, just turned away instead of acting responsibly? Why did FPMT’s Malaysian branch LDC promote this molester? They should apologize and be honest and not just change their advert regarding Dagri’s coming quietly and not say anything. Shame.

    Instead of doing the proper thing, the VBCM deleted and hid posts by the public that warned others of Dagri. On the one hand the VBCM claims to be a council and to be a source of accurate information, but on the other hand they hide and delete important posts and comments. The VBCM should never delete posts unless they are vulgar. I have personally screenshot many posts they have deleted and hidden so there is a record of the VBCM’s cover-ups. They even block accounts so where is the transparency and honesty? Why not let the public exercise the right to say what they like especially when it is on important issues like this dangerous Dagri? VBCM’s Facebook page has so little interaction already so why block people, hide and delete comments? How come they can tell the public what they want but the public cannot respond and tell them what the public wants and feels? We can be telling the truth too even if we don’t ADVERTISE our photos taken with the Dalai Lama, you know?

    You asked why I speak up and monitor the situation? It’s because the VBCM failed to perform its job and duty to inform the public. In fact VBCM is not qualified for any duties in regards to Vajrayana Buddhism. So we the public have to stand up and make a stand. I repeat, the VBCM failed. Remember, FPMT has suspended Dagri. Why suspend him if the allegations are not real? After all the public outcry, the FPMT became afraid. They have always known the allegations are real. Dagri was arrested in North India by the Indian police and that is real. It is real. He did molest the Spanish lady and that is real. He did grab the breast of the Korean lady and that is real. Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo said to speak up as she is aware of Dagri and what he did. The Dalai Lama said, “People who commit sexual abuse don’t care about the Buddha’s teaching. Make it public through media, though they may not pay heed to Buddhist teachings on ethical behaviour, they will likely take notice if their face appears in the media.” That is why we are speaking up. But why isn’t the VBCM speaking up? Why use the Dalai Lama as their claim to ‘authority’ but ignore the Dalai Lama when it is their own loss of face at stake? And how come you and VBCM do not even think about the damage done to Dagri’s victims? Where is your moral compass? What about the poor ladies who came to Dagri in full faith and trust and were horribly molested and it destroyed them? What about them? Do you have any sympathy for them? They have sworn statutory declarations and witnesses to this. They have gone to the police. They are open about it. They are not asking for compensation or money but just an admission, an apology so they can heal, so that potential victims will not become victims. FPMT, LDC and VBCM must think of the victims.

    VBCM is covering for Dagri because the LDC is a part of VBCM. VBCM should disclose openly that the LDC invited a ‘teacher’ of doubtful character, exposing the public to danger. Why does VBCM protect the LDC instead of the Malaysian public? Very biased. Is it because you have members of LDC in the VBCM? Doesn’t this show that the VBCM only acts in its own self-interest? Why scold me when you should scold VBCM and LDC?

    It is strange you and VBCM attack those who do the right thing and defend those at fault. Dagri has touched many women without their permission. That is wrong. For sure, we are not speaking up because we are disgruntled with our centers and teachers and giving up on the Dharma. We are very happy with our lives and our spiritual practice. We don’t have to be in any center to become spiritually evolved. We are speaking up because we haven’t given up on the Dharma. We are stopping monsters hiding behind religion to victimize women. Why don’t you think about the women, the victims? Why must the victims suffer more to protect VBCM and LDC’s face? Why? Think of the victims.

    When you stop to think about it, the VBCM’s ONLY claim to fame is that some of them have taken photos with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. So have I and I have also donated many times to his causes and teachings and will continue to donate. But that does not mean the Dalai Lama is perfect. He is a good person, good monk and knowledgeable but he makes mistakes too. Just look at the people he has endorsed such as Shoko Asahara and Keith Raniere. If you have no idea who they are, just Google those names and the Dalai Lama and you will see that the Dalai Lama has also made mistakes. And the Dalai Lama himself said that if he has made a mistake, I do not need to follow along the mistake but take his other teachings and apply it. The Dalai Lama has said, “If the spiritual master is following a wrong path, which is contrary to mainline teachings, the student should be able to take a stand and not blindly follow that path.” It is not improper to tell your guru he is wrong when he is wrong. It does not affect guru devotion. So Lama Zopa has made mistakes but that doesn’t mean I no longer regard him as a good person. I don’t need to follow men in robes blindly. But I must be discerning and open my eyes and be alert always. High lamas can make mistakes and they will continue to. That is fine, but they must own up to it.

    The bottom line is, LDC has promoted a sex offender and is still promoting him. I, as a good member of society who values the truth and who understands the importance of the situation, am simply bringing this to their attention and to the public’s attention. Why does it have to be this way? Because if you bring it to their attention in an open and direct way, they will brush you off to save their own skin and face and because they do not want to lose revenue and income from events such as the one they wanted to bring Dagri in for. Of course having Dagri at LDC will bring money, new members and more resources, or so they hoped. Too bad.

  24. Public Outcry Against FPMT’s Cover up of Dagri Rinpoche’s Sexual Misconduct

    FPMT’s reputation as an organization that protects and promotes sexual predator is growing, and the members of the public are disturbed with what FPMT has done.

    In the online petition titled “Call for investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Dagri Rinpoche”, more people are calling for FPMT to stop covering up Dagri Rinpoche’s sexual misconduct, protect the victims, and investigate Dagri Rinpoche’s misbehavior.

  25. In 2011 + 2012, FPMT’s branch in Malaysia (LDC) invited Dagri ‘Rinpoche’ to give pujas, oral transmissions and initiations. Now how do they feel? So many people have gotten empty transmissions, false teachings and rotten initiations from a sex offender teacher Dagri Rinpoche? What do they do now? Ask for a refund? How about when they lose faith in him? Do they go to vajra hell? It’s inevitable isn’t it due to FPMT’s negligence. How do FPMT make up for sending a dangerous sex monk to give teachings and initiations to the public when they knew about him and covered up all the victims complaints. Lama Zopa knew about Dagri Rinpoche victims’ complaints. Now it will get bigger and bigger. Karma is coming back to FPMT for all the lies and coverups. Shame. Shame. Shame.

  26. A group of prominent Buddhist nuns has asked the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) to launch an independent, third-party investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Tibetan Buddhist teacher Dagri Rinpoche.

    Signatories include well-known Western Buddhist nuns such as Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, Bhikshuni Karma Lekshe Tsomo, and Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron.

    Dagri Rinpoche, a teacher in the Geulgpa tradition, based in Dharamsala, India, has played an important role in the FPMT. The FPMT has already suspended him from teaching following multiple allegations. The group of Western nuns has now asked for an “objective and impartial investigation of the charges.”

    Lion Roar

  27. These harassments seem to never stop! What is going on?

    How can you behave like that!?! And now everybody around the world knows about it. Good!! But what is next?!!

    It is very correct that the molestations are known and everyone should be aware and keep their eyes open!!

  28. Have you guys seen this?

    I have been reading up with all that had happened with the latest Dagri Rinpoche molestation case. I cannot believe there is so much going on, especially with the way FPMT, their spiritual head, Lama Zopa Rinpoche and the monastery had responded. They are clearly downplaying the abuse, which is uncalled for in this day and age.

    You guys should read what Jakaira, one of the victim’s responded to these parties. It is obvious that she is quite upset with the way they had dismissed her and the other abuse victims. This is quite shocking to read about and does not put FPMT, Lama Zopa or the monastery in good light. As Jakaira has said, they are all liable to the damages inflicted on the victims because they choose to side with the abuser, Dagri.

    Very shocking and sad…

    Do read her letter….

    Nuns Push for Investigation into Molestation Allegations against Teacher Dagri Rinpoche

    The prominent Tibetan Buddhist monk has been suspended from teaching over abuse allegations, and now senior nuns are calling for an independent probe into his behaviour.

    After becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against the prominent Tibetan Buddhist teacher Dagri Rinpoche, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) suspended him from their list of teachers, the international Buddhist group said in a statement on their website on Tuesday. The following day, ten senior Buddhist nuns—including Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, the founder of Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery, and Thubten Chodron, the abbess of Sravasti Abbey in Washington—sent a letter to FPMT calling for a third-party investigation into the accusations.

    Dagri Rinpoche—a tulku [reincarnated master] in the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism and a touring teacher who regular visits centers in the United States, such as Sravasti Abbey, where he had been listed as a spiritual advisor—was suspended after being accused in a formal complaint of molesting a woman onboard an Air India flight on May 3. Following media reports of the charge against him, a former nun, Jakaira Perez Valdivia, posted a video on YouTube entitled “Dagri Rinpoche is indeed a serial molester,” in which she claims that Dagri Rinpoche molested her ten years ago while she was living in Dharamsala, India. Soon after, another woman, Shin Young Sun, stepped forward, writing in a Facebook post on May 13 that Dagri Rinpoche groped her breast while she was a student at Sarah College in Dharamsala between 2005 and 2009.

    Dagri Rinpoche has denied any wrongdoing.

    In their letter to FPMT, the senior nuns said there are even more women who have remained anonymous, “Some of us personally know other Western nuns who have reported that they were molested by Dagri Rinpoche,” they wrote. The letter continues:

    We urge the FPMT to commission an independent, third-party investigation into these allegations, and to make the conclusions of this investigation public. This investigation should be conducted in such a way that plaintiffs and/or witnesses feel safe to come forward and tell their stories confidentially—and anonymously, if they so wish . . . Holding an independent investigation sends a clear message that this behavior will not be tolerated and there will be repercussions for perpetrators. This is crucial in order to ensure an environment in which students’ trust can be rebuilt.

    Along with the letter, a group of practitioners and nuns have also started an online petition to urge FPMT to “find the truth.”

    In a statement released on May 13, Dagri Rinpoche reasserted his innocence. In the case of the Air India flight, he said he was only steadying himself on the armrest of his accuser, who was sleeping at the time. When she woke up, she “appeared angry” and said something to him in a language he did not understand, he wrote. He was later told that she had filed a complaint to the police.

    In his interaction with Perez Valdivia—whom Dagri Rinpoche characterizes as “a nun who experienced some physical and mental problems”—he wrote that he only “performed Jabtru, a water purification ritual, and Kakgo, a ritual to remove obstacles” to help with her with those issues. He adds, “After about three years, she used these rituals as a reason to accuse me of inappropriately touching her.”

    Perez Valdivia responded in a statement sent to Tricycle on May 16, saying, “instead of apologising he’s blaming and discrediting the victims, the oldest method proved effective to get away with abuse.”

    She added that he has spent his “entire life getting away with molesting students and devotees around the world due to the silence and complicity of some institutions and of the Tibetan system itself.”

    In her social-media post, Shin Young Sun also described a culture of ignoring or silencing women whom teachers have allegedly abused, saying that those in positions of power have turned a blind eye, including the office of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. She explained that although she has personally forgiven Dagri Rinpoche, she chose to speak out in solidarity with Perez Valdivia. “I write this post for other victims. Because they . . . still experience the hardships,” she said.

    Related: Sex in the Sangha . . . Again

    FPMT head Lama Zopa Rinpoche, meanwhile, has received criticism for an open letter he sent to Dagri Rinpoche’s students. He wrote:

    Dagri Rinpoche is a very positive, holy being—definitely not an ordinary person . . . Therefore, I want to tell the students who have received initiations and teachings from Dagri Rinpoche that you should definitely one hundred percent rejoice, no matter what the world says, no matter if some people criticize him. Even after Buddha became enlightened, he showed the aspect of having pain in his foot when a piece of wood went through it. Buddha said that the suffering was the result of sexual misconduct with a woman in one of his past lives, a long time ago.

    In her statement, Perez Valdivia called the advice “embarrassing and outrageous” and said it “excuses the abuser from any ‘appearance’ of misconduct that he may manifest.”

  32. Disgusting. This is the example and tone that FPMT have set for their people, which is to EXCUSE SEXUAL ABUSE. Embarrassing that this Western organization allows their people to use cultural differences as a justification for abuse or a lack of reaction. This reaction is so illogical because:

    (1) FPMT are Western-based so they should know how to react and that is, to not sweep it under the rug

    (2) The first victim is an Indian and Dagri spent most of his life in India so what cultural difference is there??

    (3) Not to forget but its ILLEGAL to abuse women so the point on cultural differences is irrelevant. It’s ILLEGAL, plain and simple.

    Really embarrassing that FPMT would go along with this. It’s not human, let alone Buddhist.

  33. There is a new update from the FPMT and Lama Zopa just published (on 24 May) and it’s so sad that even now, neither FPMT and Lama Zopa are doing anything to take these allegations seriously. Quite the opposite, Lama Zopa is still protecting Dagri Rinpoche, still saying that he is “a holy being” and asking people to accept that him sexually molesting people is some form of divine act for the good of the victim.

  35. Unlike 5 years ago, Tibetan leader Lobsang Sangay is not invited to Prime Minister Modi’s swearing-in ceremony this time. It is clear that PM Modi of India snubs the Tibetan leadership once again in favour of deeper ties with China. The Tibetan leadership finds itself increasingly isolated as nobody wants to offend China by lending any support to the ungrateful Tibetans.

    PM Modi snubs Tibetan leadership for swearing-in ceremony
    By Tenzin Dharpo
    May. 30, 2019
    DHARAMSHALA, May 30: The Indian Prime Minister who is fresh off of a massive win in the Indian Lok Sabha elections has done a U-turn by not inviting exile Tibetan government’s President to the swearing in ceremony due to be held later today, in a bid to not anger Beijing.
    The President of the exile Tibetan government, known officially as the Central Tibetan Administration, Dr. Lobsang Sangay’s absence today at the Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi marks a stark contrast to 2014 when the elected Tibetan leader was seated in the former rows at the ceremony when PM Modi was sworn into office the first time around.
    The invitation to Dr. Sangay in May 2014 drew strong objection from the Chinese government who lodged an official protest censuring New Delhi’s disregard for the so-called ‘One-China policy’. Many said at the time that the invite was posturing at most, of Modi’s intent to India’s neighbor and biggest rivals both in Asia and global arenas.
    The New Delhi-Beijing relations post the Doklam stand off and Wuhan summit has meant that India has given a cold shoulder to the exile Tibetan set up, thereby taking a step back in using the much-touted ‘Tibet card’. The shift in policy has markedly been seen on the ground with New Delhi issuing an advisory to senior leaders to avoid His Holiness the Dalai Lama or pushing the CTA to shift the “thank you India” ceremony from New Delhi to Dharamshala last year.
    The head of the Tibetan polity who extended pleasantries to PM Modi on his win, however may have anticipated the snub. Days after Modi’s historic election win, Sangay flew to the United States and is scheduled to return on June 5 to India next week.

  36. Finally, Dagri is being brought to the court. The first hearing was done on 23rd May while the next hearing is scheduled for 12th June. I wonder if the FPMT is paying for his court case and if they will deny the law further by saying he is an emanation of some high being and settle it outside of court. I wish victim number 4 step forward to bring this case to the next level too!

    No one who is innocent will behave like that, he is surely guilty! I hope the Indian courts will serve the women he molested justice and put him in prison!

  39. You are being molested, put down, being called as crazy woman and blacklisted, just because you stand up against injustice and speak the truth. How SAD>

  40. Lama Zopa’s advice has made a lot of people lose faith in him regarding Dagri Rinpoche’s molestation victims.

  41. It’s pathetic that FPMT are trying to cover up the truth by pressuring people to shut down their Facebook groups. What’s wrong with people having good, open and honest discussions about something that HAS to be talked about? The culture of silence that they enforced allowed Dagri Rinpoche to keep abusing more people over 10 years, and now they’re doing it again. FPMT really hasn’t learned their lesson. Or did they pressure the group to shut down because there is something they want to hide so FPMT would rather stop the discussions now, just in case something is inadvertently revealed?

    Looks like there’s no freedom of speech in FPMT. Looks like FPMT don’t care about justice for the Dagri’s victims. Looks like FPMT only care about their financial bottomline. How ‘Buddhist’.

    Under Pressure

  42. Lhungtok Choekhorling has updated their website with announcement of Dagri Rinpoche being suspended from FPMT

    Lhungtok Choekhorling DR Announcement

  43. According to this senior student of FPMT, there are still traces of Dorje Shugden within FPMT and he says Lama Zopa Rinpoche is just like Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. The ban has really messed things up. No one is good enough because everyone has a Shugden history 🤦

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
