Moved from Rigpa Cult Practice Testimonies / Chris Chandler
When you are still in the cult of lamaism, whether half in, or totally in, you will not be able to tolerate the evidence of reality of who these lamas really are, you will not read the books that are referred to, you will have given up your critical intelligence for the group think culture that is what all cults have in common, the dismissal of contradictory evidence and demonizing or dismissing anything that pops the bubble of cult think … You will not notice that it is a master slave paradigm with this ‘living deities ‘ on thrones, and you will not read the real history of Tibet, and the repressive theocratic regimes, that kept their own people illiterate, and in drudgery with superstition and fear of varja hells, And accepting of gross poverty, as ‘their karma”.
The only thing cuckoo is the wish to give up 500 years of western progress and return to the misogyny of a 14th century, superstitious slave paradigm and continue to bemoan the sexual predator of one lama, when he is supported, aided and abetted by the whole misogynistic edifice of Tibetan Lamaism. In 22 years, and two million dollar lawsuits , Sogyal is still going strong, teaching this month at Connecticut College as though nothing can penetrate him, because western Tibetan Buddhists still have one foot in the cult of lamaism, they think it will be different with this or that lama, or another scene, when it is a cookie cutter paradigm, cultivated over centuries of suppressing its people, in particular women.
And since, western Buddhists still want to believe and hold on to their fantasies, that this superstitious, Hindustani Brahmanism is really Buddhism, and can’t really extricate themselves and call out Sogyal’s abuse unequivocally, by taking a Violence Against Women suit against him, for example in the U.S. you are unable to make a dent in it, because you cannot see the forest, for the trees. You just want to keep one part of it ‘special” and the exception. Sogyal is not an exception, he is supported by the misogyny of Tibetan lamaism that kept their own people as serfs and slaves for centuries.
