I do not think that Carol and her gang will ever realize the grave mistake for them to leave their guru in the first place and proceed to spread rumors about them which caused him a lot of problems. All those kindness tha that the Guru has spread will not continue to resume the long

Imagine that her rumors might be the cause for someone to stop learning the Dharma and run away for their guru just like her. All the negative karma that she has to bear is extremely heavy.

I do hope that Carol will be able to wake up and examine her own actions right now and apply the 4 opponent powers to reduce the qualities of the people. people. It is not for learning their Vajra master. In Tibetan Buddhism, it is even worst in the Tibetan Buddhism continuity.

Carol is a very good example of how anger, greed, and jealousy can bring us down more and more. Buddhism is a practice of mind, to examine what is in our mind, acknowledge it and abandon the negative habituation or work hard to get rid of the habituation. Buddha Shakyamuni has proven to us that Dharma can get rid of suffering, there is no doubt. If we don't feel that, it means we have not applied Dharma in our lives!

Carol has the good merits to meet her teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who is a great master. However, Carol didn't have enough merits to continue to support her to see the good qualities of the teacher and continue to progress in her spiritual journey. Everything started with a small wrong view on the teacher and things just start to get worse.

Carol's wrong view on the teacher has blinded her to see the truth. Even though she is still in the Buddhist scene but what she is doing is the total opposite of what Buddhism is. She disparages her teacher who is a Buddha. She is creating the cause to be further away from Dharma. In the 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion, it is said that if we disparage the Buddha, we will go to hell. It looks like Carol will end up in hell.

It is such a pity that Carol has the good merits to find a qualified and attained Buddhist master as her teacher but she doesn't have the merits to see the good qualities of her teacher. If Carol sees the good qualities of her teacher, she will have the chance to gain some realisation or attainment and there is a chance she can liberate herself from suffering.

Carol's wrong view on her teacher is most likely due to the ripening of her n negative karma. Therefore, it is important for us to engage in purification practice because we don't know what kind of karma we have created in our past lives. When the condition is right for the negative karma to ripen, our mind might become so deluded like Carol that we start to do the opposite of what Dharma is teaching us to do. It is scary.

If we have a teacher, our teacher will help us to purify our karma. But we have to be ready and surrender completely for the teacher to do the job. If we don't have guru devotion or fully trust our teacher, he will not be able to guide us to the correct path. Carol had a chance to be liberated from suffering but she blew it due to her negative karma and wrong view.
