The Dalai Lama says that he has long been aware of stories about sexual abuse by Buddhist teachers. “I already knew these things. Nothing new”, he replied to the question from the NOS about what he learned from his conversation with four victims of yesterday. Follow-up questions and other questions about the subject could not be asked at a short press conference in the Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.

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.
