If KG's teachings are so good, where are the advanced practitioners showing the benefits?
Certainly, Lucy James was an advanced practitioner, her NKT accomplishments were legendary. Shocking most NKTites, Gyatso fired Lucy James for her lack of allegiance.
Late April 2008, Gyatso emailed Lucy,
"...You know that not one single student of NKT Dharma Centres in Florida joined the demonstration in Hamilton, NY, and this week the Admin Director of KMC Florida has resigned saying: 'Since the beginning of our involvement with the NKT we have been repeatedly told that the NKT was not involved in politics. Now that the NKT has opened up with its political position and begun demonstrating I can no longer be a part of the organization. This complete lack of honesty about the NKT's involvement in Tibetan politics is the reason for my departure.'
This clearly shows that the students have seriously misunderstood the demonstrations through receiving wrong information from you – their Resident Teacher.
...I am very sorry that you have not trusted me. Because you do not trust me I cannot work with you therefore my conclusion is that you should resign from being an NKT Resident Teacher. From 1st May 2008 you will no longer be an NKT Resident Teacher. I will prepare a new Resident Teacher for KMC Florida and Parbawatiya Center."
A day earlier, Gyatso emailed NKT centers around the world,
"...as the representative of the Western Shugden Society, I personally will organise demonstrations against the Dalai Lama directly. I requested Kelsang Pema and Kelsang Thubchen to do this job for me and they have accepted. "
Other high ranking NKT leaders, such as Samden (Gyatso' heir before the current one due to takeover this summer), have been disgraced by Gyatso. For example, Gyatso wrote Samden,
"You have destroyed the NKTs
reputation and the power of all NKT Resident Teachers. Through your
actions so many ordained Teachers have disrobed following your view
which is opposite to Buddhist view – you tried to spread a sexual
lineage which you yourself created. Even in society a Teacher cannot
have sex with students. After you left many people confessed to me
that you had had sex with them. You had sex with so many students and
through your deceptive actions one nun tried to commit suicide because
of your sexual behaviour towards her.
Because the NKTs reputation and power of the Resident Teachers has
been destroyed by your activities now the future development of the
NKT will be difficult both materially and spiritually. However, I
myself and all my students are working hard to recover the damage you
made. We will never allow your sexual lineage to spread in this
There have been several other instances of high-level sexual misconduct at NKT.
Why was Gyatso's purported infinite wisdom not able to protect the victims or the disgraced perpetrators? Or, was there some sort of premeditated Gyatso lesson or strategy at work?
NKT, yet another con, though this one is aimed at Buuddhists and young idealists joining NKT's problematic monastic life too early.
Following the parochial, distorted vision of Gyatso's westernized, watered-down, excessively promise-laden derivative of Tibetan Buddhism NKT has produced no Geshes, no Lamas, no Rinpoches and no credible Buddhist leaders.
