So many high lamas had been exposed to being sexual offenders and in this day and age, news such as this will be exposed and travels fast. These lamas used their positions of authority to take advantage of those vulnerable and dare not speak out. With so many already exposed, imagine what it was like when they were in Tibet where communications are still backward? Being in spirituality obviously does not means practice and imagine all the young lives who were entrusted into these sex predators' hands. Such violation of trusts and they will grow up thinking wrong as right. It really has to stop as these kinds of harm can be carried forward generations by generations. I am glad to see the Buddhist nuns had joined together in asking for an inquiry into the Dagri Rinpoche's case and for it not to be swept under the carpet. Will the Tibetan Leaders pay heed?

I believe the situation back in Tibet will be much much worse because the high lamas are very influential and powerful. Just look at what the Tibetan government had done in the past when Tibet is still a free country. They can do whatever they want in the name of the government and there is no one to stop them.

They can wipe the entire legacy of any famous lama out and accuse them of crimes that they did not do. The Tibetan government hold absolute power and will not be challenged by anyone and they will remove anyone that poses a threat to them. One of the most famous examples will be Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Luckily this is not Tibet anymore and bad Tibetan lamas will have to pay the price for acting inappropriately. The Tibetan government or His Holiness will not be able to bail them out anymore since the whole world is watching now.
