Just as NKT gets one review for its new book, The Great Deception, booted from amazon.com, another is posted.
NKT's elves are busy though, so it may not last long. Thus, here it is...
"This book is disgusting.
It is unlike any other book written about the Dalai Lama, who escaped from Tibet in 1959 following Tibet's overthrow by Mao Zedong as part of his expansion of his communist revolution in China.
According to the book's authors, "Achieving...(the book's)...aims depends solely on whether the present Dalai Lama will accept the four points set out at the conclusion of Chapter 4 of this book." The book seeks to change what it calls political policies of the Dalai Lama.
The book is marketed as a spiritual solution to a political problem - the Dalai Lama's role as historical spiritual and political leader of Tibet, i.e., until 1959. However, there is nothing spiritual, or positive, constructive or inspiring, about this book.
The book attempts to grind away everything positive about the Dalai Lama's life-long trek to teach and practice compassion and call attention to his homeland (Tibet). This year, the Dalai Lama will be 76 years old.
About half of this book appeared before as a free pamphlet, titled The Tibetan Situation Today, distributed at political protest rallies against the Dalai Lama. The book is structured as a destructive exposé, calling the Dalai Lama a falsified Tibetan leader (chapter 2), a dictator (chapter 3) a hypocrite (chapter 4) and a collaborator with Nazis (through pictures and text).
The book claims "in February 1998 posters of the Ten Most Hated Enemies of the Dalai Lama and Tibet were circulated throughout Tibetan settlements in India and Nepal...they were complete with photographs and biographical information, and encouraged Tibetan people to kill these ten innocent Dorje Shugden practitioners. Since they were first published, this list has been distributed to Tibetan communities throughout the world."
The book claims that Kelsang Gyatso was the first name on the list (this individual presides over a British cult, principle authors of this book). The book adds, "if in the future any of these ten people is killed then the Western Shugden Society will automatically recognize the principal perpetrator as the Dalai Lama himself and will pursue necessary investigative and legal action to ensure his eventual conviction under criminal law."
Dorje Shugden is a controversial spirit or ghost that the book claims began with the 1656 murder of Dragpa Gyaltsen by the Fifth Dalai Lama. According to the book, "Having destroyed the life of Tulku Dragma Gyaltsen and established his religious authority over Tibet, the Fifth Dalai Lama then moved to establish his political authority."
The book holds the Dalai Lama responsible for the historical Mongol feudal legacy in Tibet since the time of Genghis Khan (1162-1227).
I wonder if amazon.com realizes the horrible false allegations in this book aimed at the Dalai Lama. None of the other books sold on amazon.com about the Dalai Lama or written by him contain such disgusting material."
NKT charges the Fifth Dalai Lama with murder (no one else does) and charges the current Dalai Lama of inspiring 10 murders, with NKT's founder number one on the list (no one else does)!
Someday, amazon.com may be held accountable for distributing NKT's attacks.
NKT's elves are also busy rationalizing NKT's hotels in Holland, Spain and Italy.
"One of the main aims of the New Kadampa Tradition is to ‘exemplify Buddhist practice through public service’ and a hotel is a perfect medium to accomplish this."
NKT exemplifies its weird brand of public service in this way,
"Wake up with a wholesome free breakfast in the bright World Peace Cafe and plan your day at leisure. The lounge of the Cafe is a comfortable environment for relaxing at the fireplace with a book and a cup of tea or coffee. Weather permitting, the river side garden is a great place to sit out and unwind in the sun.
Spa treatments include Facial treatments (Cleansing, skin analysis, peeling, removal of impurities, eyebrow depilation, cooling vapour, massage and algae or cream mask), Anti-stress treatment, skin-firming treatment for the throat, waxing, body treatments (Body peeling, Algae body pack, Revitalizing treatment, Frigi treatment, Slimming), Hand care, Foot care, massage, thermae pulsing, hot stones, pressure point massage, floating bath and Affusion 2OOO.

Romantic Package for Two: With this package, the second person pays only half of the regular price. Choose out of Body peeling, algae body pack and "mini treatment" (available Monday to Thursday only).
Hotel Kadampa Holland provides an ideal way to play the standard golf course you require as well as experiencing and benefiting from tranquil accommodation and facilities. This is specifically ideal if you have any non-golfers in your party as they can enjoy the hotel's location and spa town nearby with health and wellbeing centres while the golfers are out on the golf course. This way there is something for everyone."
NKTites like NKT's businesses. For example,
"I must admit, when I first heard the idea of Kadampa Hotels I had lots of doubts and wondered if this was the right direction to be going in, but having thought about it quite a lot subsequently, it makes perfect sense and is really a great gift to everyone. Just feeding the hungry, clothing the poor and so forth is not as meritorious (strange as that might seem) because it doesn’t give people the opportunity to connect with the path to liberation."
NKT might be congratulated though. It has arrived as one of the world's notorious cults.
