They attack anywhere The Dalai Lama appears with ugly hate-mongering protests that negatively portray the core tenant of Buddhism, compassion. They assault Buddhists on the Internet with a dozen web sites and thousands of blog posts, against anyone recognizing that NKT is openly and strategically mocking Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who emanates in The Dalai Lama.
NKT's aim - to 'purify' Buddhism with its higher-ranking deity, Shugden. Because Shugden-worship invites so little respect in view of Pabangkha's deployment exemplified in The Yellow book, many consider NKT's founder, Gyatso, demonically possessed (by Shugden perhaps; most consider Shugden a wrathful frustrated spirit).
(produced by a Buddhist organization in Germany August 2008)
The Yellow Book chronicles injuries, unending disasters and 2 dozen assassinations at the hands of Shugden against those straying from Shugden extremism. The Yellow Book describes Pabongkha's recovery from strange dreams and poisoning caused by Shugden. Accordingly, Shugden serves to harm perceived enemies of a militant Shugden fundamentalism.

NKT members and leadership protesting against The Dalai Lama
Gyatso (falsely) promised in 2002 that "I can guarantee that the NKT and myself have never performed inappropriate actions and will never do so in the future, this is our determination," and that he and NKT had "completely stopped being involved in the Shugden issue at any level" since 1998. Notably, Gyatso threatened legal action against the Washington Times. (click here for Gyatso's letter)
In that same time frame, Gyatso (falsely) asserted:
"Some small group in our NKT society engage in meaningless activity on the internet, not only Sangha, some lay. This is incorrect. We are Kadampa practitioners, Kadampa Teachers. Why are we enjoying meaningless activity, discussion? We can have a meaningful discussion with pure practitioners or senior practitioners, Teachers. There is no meaning in talking about silly things publicly on the internet. Instead, make meaningful discussion with our pure practitioners, senior Teachers. Please give my message to the individuals of this group. Stop this kind of actions. Gen-la Khyenrab, give my message in email or writing. Stop meaningless discussion on the internet. If you wish, do meaningful discussion with senior Teachers or pure practitioners, or meaningful discussion with your Teacher. No meaning engaging in silly question and answers on the internet. Please Gen-la Khyenrab, pass my message. I am telling you for your purpose and our society's purpose. In this way, keep individuals and society pure and show very good example."
Obviously, in view of actual protests and introduction of a dozen web sites and thousands of blog posts in 2008 directly contradicting Gyatso's (bogus) assurances, Gyatso and NKT see Gyatso's 'godliness' merely a convenient charm for the gullible. For example:
And, Gyatso's heir, Khyenrab (who also appears yelling and shaking his fist over his head in the video at the top of this page and in the second photo above). Khyenrab (below) is posing with NKT's 'bible', The Tibetan Situation Today (about as ugly a treatise as it gets). (click here for the document)
