The tax-exempt 501 (C) (3) ‘churches’ set up by Tibetan Lamaists, Tibetans and Westerners, rake in billions of tax-exempt American dollars in ‘donations’, and the individual Tibetan lamas in these organizations grow wealthier and wealthier.
- How many Tibetan Buddhist nonprofit ‘churches’ sell:
- texts and text holders for the teachings, rituals and empowerments, books, photographs, metal and wooden statues of Tibetan Buddhist idols – large and small, malas (strings of beads used to count mantras), thangkas (paintings on fabric of deities and demons of Tibetan Buddhism) and ritual items for altars and rituals (butter lamps, offering cups, drums, incense), clothing, prayer blankets, cushions, and many other items
- to their students and the public, and do not report this merchandise (business) income to the states they reside in and to the Federal government?
The Tibetan lamas decades ago found a legal way to have their American students support them, by creating tax-exempt organizations, and establish their harmful practices in the West. Then, a few years ago, when Buddhist centers were allowed to declare themselves ‘churches’, they went even deeper into secrecy. Churches are not required to file 990’s, which most of the Tibetan Centers had to do before they designated themselves as ‘churches.’
Tibetan Lamaism is a guru-worshiping cult based on a medieval sacerdotal Tantra culture of mind-control and sexual abuse, with countless demons, deities and spirits (sorcery?) that uses a veneer of Buddhism to fool the public. There is nothing remotely resembling the Buddhism of Siddhārtha Gautama in Tibetan Lamaism, and the teachings of Tibetan Lamaism do not promote love, compassion and altruism, in fact, Lamaism is in reality Hindu Tantric guru-worship which morphed over the centuries into institutionalized sexual abuse of women and little boys in the lamaseries.
It’s all about the MONEY:
Tibetan lamas rarely use their own money for their activities, and instead persuade their students, donors and the public that donating to them and to their ‘churches’ will bring merit to the donors, bring blessings and help to liberate sentient beings. But Tibetan lamas don’t believe in interfering in the ‘karma’ of others, in this lifetime or in ‘future lifetimes,’ and although they solicit money donations for sponsoring pujas and rituals for specific outcomes – Green Tara for protection, removal of obstacles and recovering from disease, White Tara for long life, Medicine Buddha for the sick and dying to purify and heal on all levels, Mahakala to protect ‘Dharma’ practitioners and remove obstacles to ‘Dharma’ practice – since their belief is that you are stuck with your ‘bad karma’ in this lifetime, and probably your subsequent lifetimes, you are throwing your money away.
It’s all about the money. And power. And control. And ‘enlightenment’ through Tantric sexual practices for the higher ranking males (has any Western woman or Tibetan woman reached ‘enlightenment’ through having ‘willing’ or unwilling sex with Tibetan lamas?)
Millions of dollars in cash donations Tibetan lamas receive have been tucked away, not deposited into the organization’s bank accounts, but taken overseas to lamaseries (Tibetan monasteries) and stored away. When Tibetan and Western lamas are invited to give teachings, empowerments and retreats at other lama’s Tibetan centers, they are presented at the end of the events with offerings of large amounts of cash, wrapped in katas (thin silk scarves), usually during a concluding ‘mandala’ offering ceremony.
With the explosion of women, men and children reporting their horrific experiences in this trauma-based mind-control cult, it is time to expose to the world the harm done by these anachronistic men in crimson robes, and re-examine whether their organizations really deserve the non-profit status.
An interesting error by Lodu Kimshul (some call him Lama Lodu) of Kagyu Droden Kunchab, in San Francisco, in identifying his Kagyu Droden Kunchab Church Corporation for the Internal Revenue Service Activity Codes was recently discovered. Kagyu Droden Kunchab Church Corporation is listed with the IRS as an X20, which is the National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities Code for a Christianity based church, and not the X50 which is the NTEE code for a Buddhist church. Why would they categorize their Tibetan ‘Buddhist’ organization as Christian?
I believe it’s time for the Internal Revenue Service to review the 501 (C) (3) non-profit ‘church’ statuses of many of these Tibetan corporations in America.
