Listen to a fine summary of Buddhists cults. NKT's review begins at about 40 minutes into the audio.
Also, read through the conclusions "Angry White Buddhists and the Dalai Lama: Appropriation and Politics in the Globalization of Tibetan Buddhism."
Respectable audio and print echo in 2015 what this web site has reported for seven years. Mainstream media and journal coverage of the NEW KADAMPA TRADITION's extremism is voluminous over the past twenty years. Newsweek, Tricycle etc. For example, examine these publications by Dr. David Kay in the Journal of Contemporary Religion in 1997 and by Dr. Robert Thurman in The Huffington Post in 2014.
Note the parallels with Scientology in HBO's August 2015 documentary, Going Clear: Scientology.
New Kadampa Tradition extremist anger, especially intense in person
Consider that supporters of the New Kadampa Tradition have posted hundreds of extremist comments on the internet. A few have emailed this web site, example. Consider the dark places that leaders inside the New Kadampa Tradition have published, example.
According to the police in India (Newsweek, 1997), Shugdenites murdered three of the Dalai Lama's closest advisors (the Dalai Lama was not present at the time, otherwise would have likely been included; police have made no connection with the New Kadampa Tradition).
