Sorry if this is off topic - but Dzongsar Jamyang Khentse is hardly a reliable person to quote about anything, since he appears to have been excusing Sogyal Lakar's abuse of female students over the years, as well as Sogyal's more recent punching of a nun in the stomach, which has resulted in him being expelled from the Tibetan Buddhist Rigpa organisation.Dharmasherab wrote: ↑Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:30 pm
Lol. I know right? I dont understand why a certain group needs to get more privilage than the rest. It brings into mind what Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse said about this -
" I suspect that many liberals, atheists and much of the Western media would be delighted if news of a Jain suicide bomber now hit the headlines, because it would prove their point that all religions have a dark side and harbour extremists. How can we not be discouraged when Germany’s largest daily newspaper, the Süddeutsche Zeitung with a daily readership of more than one million, publishes a lead article about the Sogyal Rinpoche scandal under the section heading ‘Buddhism,’ and entitled “Abuse.” Imagine the outcry if the Western press were to report every Muslim bombing and massacre under the heading ‘Islam!’" - Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
Such unacceptable behaviour needs to be exposed, rather than hidden.
