“What about the financial side of Shambhala?” And other Tibetan centers?

Of particular interest to me is whether the various Shambhala organizations have been violating tax laws. The Ladrang, for example, says on its provincial registry that it is a “church,” and yet the money raised appears to benefit only one person — Sakyong Mipham, and I suppose his family. And the Shambhala Canada Society was previously registered as the Vajradhatu Buddhist Church; I don’t know why the name was changed. It appears that licensing or other fees collected from the Shambhala centers are run through Shambhala International, but I don’t know if that income is declared as business income or of a charitable nature.

In his lengthy teaching on samaya, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche said things like: Beating removes obstacles and brings blessings.
Beating hard increases wisdom. When a lama has mastered great primordial wisdom, everything he does is for the benefit of sentient beings; whether it corresponds to Western ideas or not, if he kills someone, no problem. When you feel hurt, there is no point to turn against the teacher because the real reason is that you don’t have enough merit. The people who wrote the letter had wrong views and have broken their samaya with their teacher, who loved and cared for them.

Plucked out, suddenly and permanently, from the darkness at the heart of Tibetan Lamaism

When we got to the Center that fateful day, we went down to his residence to pay our respects, and for Donald to give him a $2,000.00 donation from one of our friends and benefactors, his annual sponsorship for orphan children in Kimshul’s ‘Orphan Children Fund’*. Our friend had donated $1,000.00 the previous year, which had sponsored two ‘orphans’ for a year (at $500 a year per child, this is a small fortune in Sikkim). Our friend told Donald he wanted to sponsor four children for a year with this $2,000.00 donation… Then Kimshul told Donald that the $2,000.00 would be used for two children, not four (an even larger small fortune, $1,000 for the care of one child in Sikkim).

More Vajrayana (Lamaist) Mind-Control Doublespeak to Create Cognitive Dissonance, Confusion and Self-Doubt

This ‘guru-yoga’ fanaticism is intended to create unquestioning subservience in the students, so that they believe that all actions (good and evil) of their ‘higher-realized being’ teacher are enlightened, and are for the students’ highest good. And to prevent them from exposing the bad actions of their teacher, they are taught that the punishment for ‘breaking samaya’ to their teacher and revealing the truth to others is to be thrust into a Vajra hell a million times worse than any hell they could imagine, and this hell is spelled out in great horrific detail in the Lamaist texts – ‘sadhanas’ – which these students are supposed to chant millions of times (in phonetic Tibetan with English translations just below on the pages), along with the mantra “May I always obey my master and never reveal the secrets of Vajrayana, or may I be relegated to the hell realms for all eternity.’)
