If it is just a matter of seeking sexual partners, everyone involved presumably is a consenting adult.
An adult can have sex with a child of 16 in Canada as long as that person is not in a position of authority. I say this because of the knowledge that people in authority have an unfair advantage in getting sexual consent .
Whether it is liberating activity or just sex is not something we actually have the capacity to perceive with our limited samsaric vision.
Is this statement to justufy that maybe having sex with soygal can be liberating in a Buddhist sense of some sort...it's like a quick route to enlightenment...or his pure land?
I don't hear any mention of Karma Mudra from anyone who is complaining about what went on between them. and that includes not ejaculating. did he ejaculate is a question if one is going to justify his actions in a tantric sense.
If Sogyal was forcing his women student to have abortions after he impregnated them, for example, then this would be entirely different, of course. Therefore, this is none of our business, in absence of other information.
actually any abuse put out from a person in authority is everyone's buisness, especially in an organization of this size..
Physical assualt is a criminal act, either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on how severe the resulting harm. A punch in the stomach is likely a misdemeanor unless there is some damage to an organ. However, the proper forum adjudicating this is the courts, not DW
Please tell us you are not setting up a defence of this horrible human being who punched nuns in the stomach..please for the love of my future reading of you...
Hence my observation that Sogyal has become the OJ of Tibetan Buddhism.
you are kidding us right...that is like the worst deflection i have ever seen ..if it wasn't about some guy in authority over people in a religious setting dealing with people who would do anything to better their miserable lives...i would ...no i won't say i could lol..i can't ...
