Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

The question is: To him, was that despising women? To us, of course. Maybe it wasn't clear to him. Again, you’re suggesting that he’s an idiot. No, because (1) he doesn't read minds. Those women were suffering for sure, but we now know because they aired it out later. (2) sex with women is fine in ...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Just "married women" here. Again. Again. They all seem to be saying "untaken" women is fine. You should think about what it means to "despise women, who are the embodiment of wisdom". If you are even a Vajrayana practitioner. The question is: To him, was that despising women? To us, of course. Mayb...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

It is, in HYT. Oh, so when the Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche pushed that women's head towards his penis and told her to "finish it off" eve though she expressed that she did not want to engage in sexual activity with him (nevermind all the other women's allegations) he was engaging in teaching her dharma...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Do you peak at night in their rooms? No, but I’ve spent plenty of nights in the same house, adjoining room, serving them and years of practice along side them. I’d have noticed if something was off. And I was looking. Maybe they were doing a good job. :lol: They were, a good job of embodying the th...

By observing their conduct. This is quite simple really.

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Is what they teach even the dharma? A good chunk of it seems to be similar to play-acting. The notion of putting someone in a 'stockade' should be a red flag, especially post-Stanford prison experiment I feel this is nitpicking now. If there were no sexual allegations, you and PeterC probably would...

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Don’t flatter yourselves. I’m sure most “real teachers” do it too. "real teacher" means someone who doesn't engage in abuse. Kevin.... How would you know that they don't? By observing their conduct.

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Like father, like son. There is some really unpleasant material in that report, and unfortunately it’s very believable. So many aspects of their organization seem suspect - their constant fundraising, the “court”, the secrecy about their practices, etc. Is what they teach even the dharma? While the...

It's beginning to become very clear that you have absolutely zero experience in terms of the teacher/student relationship.

Re: Mipham Rinpoche channels Wienstein:

Disgusting.
Mipham deliberately stated that he wouldn’t be reborn in this world. I always thought it odd that this guy wore his name.

By your logic dharma teachers and celebrities are similar entities in relational dynamics.
Hint, they are different.
Not really.

Re: CTR, polygamy, cocaine, etc: Discuss

CTR was clear to everyone that that's what he did and asked first, Harvey manipulated and forced. We disagree on what "manipulation" is in this case. Trungpa used his position to influence women and that is clearly manipulation in my opinion. That behavior is at the very least unbecoming of a dharm...

Wasn't what? CTR was clear to everyone that that's what he did and asked first, Harvey manipulated and forced. The difference is that those women came to Buddhism because of their longings to be freed from suffering. There is something much more messed up about a person who claims they will lead yo...

Now, now, guys, let's not disturb Josef's mind with any inconvenient facts.
I appreciate your concern. It is, however, unnecessary.
It's quite clear that Trungpa was open about his sexuality.

No, I don't think He demanded or manipulated. I know at least two women He asked to go to bed with Him who said no and that was the end of that. One stayed His student to this day; the other decided that sangha/Teacher wasn't for her. Right. I understand he was very open about his sexuality. Now, n...
