It would probably be cheaper for them to find a new building to move into.

I think with the new elaborate property in Sedona, unless Jetsunma can spend more time in Maryland, it will be hard to attract people to keep it vibrant. Most of the very dedicated followers seem to have moved to Sedona to be closer to their teacher.

It's a beautiful building. I've never attended a teaching there, but I have spent time at the stupa park on several occasions. The Mingyur Dorje stupa is exceptional.

I wonder what has motivated Montgomery County to inspect the site and evaluate it in this way. Has there been a change in code? A sprinkler system was not required before, but is required now...?

Maybe I'm out of the loop... Do any of her students post here?

In the past she has gone back and forth between Sedona and KPC. It may say on her website where she is.

Interesting.

arsent, the material on that blog posting dates back to April of 2010. Are you saying that this is a sequel to that event or a repetition of the same three years on?

You're right, it's certainly controversial.

arsent,

Please let me clarify my earlier post a bit. The blog post you cited appears to be about an event that happened in 2010. This thread is about something going on right now (2013). Are you certain the two events are related? If so, how are they related?

thanks

I sincerely hope that if people are going to donate USD $1 000 000, they will do it directly to the Palyul lineage and not to a lady that has been an unmitigated disaster from day one.
