What was presented to the world about Tibetan Buddhism, actions and intentions to benefit all sentient beings, and holy men in crimson robes committed to peace, seemed to be a good fit, in 1992, for the authors’ personalities, altruism, and their continuous uplifting of others. Until, that is, the dark underbelly of Tibetan Buddhism tried to swallow them.
Many previous authors have written about the harm done by Tibetan ‘Lamaism’ (known as Buddhism), and the hidden agenda behind the Dalai Lama’s message of Wisdom, Compassion and Love, but in this memoir the Rubbos bring an urgency to their testimony, updating other’s warnings with their personal experiences.
It was the hand of God, the authors came to realize, that plucked them out in November of 2006, and it has taken them more than ten years to write this exposé on the violent roots of Lamaism, which is a cult of priest-worship founded on the shamanic, indigenous sorcery of Bön, and the subjugating tantric sex rituals of Hinduism, lightly covered over by a veneer of Buddhism. All of these characteristics of Tibetan Lamaism/Buddhism are still in play today, and has created great harm in the world. The testimony in this book aims to rectify this by shining the light of Truth upon the darkness.
Testimony by victims of the sexual abuse by Vajrayana teachers, both Tibetan and Western, is exploding, but other types of abuse are being ignored. Psychological abuse is rampant also, and is based on the sociopathic guru/student relationship in Vajrayana Lamaism. Trauma based mind-control is used by many Tibetan and Western teachers, along with thought and emotion projection, dream penetration (spiritual rape), and multiple teachings on how leaving your teacher or breaking samaya will bring the student to the hell realms forever.
In Lamaism, there is also ritual harm, intentional pujas and rituals done to control and manipulate the students, one deity they use is Kurukulle. Ritual harm is just as harmful as the other forms of abuse, but no one is talking about this. If the lamas believe that doing prayers, pujas, empowerments etc, to get desired results such as ‘world peace’ and ‘liberating sentient beings’ is effective and manifests in reality, they also believe that doing these to control others and harm their ‘enemies’ (other people!) is also effective.
It’s time to widen the discussion of all forms of abuses in Lamaism, and stop all the harm to innocents.
