This is actually a terribly odd video -- he basically openly talks about some cult-like behaviours (slapping followers, ignoring them and not speaking to them for a year etc) and rationalizes them.

Wow, that video, that's is really classically manipulative talk...

If he is a monk, how can he dress like that without breaking one of his precepts?

Would someone please explain to me or one of the moderators what Tsem means by the distinction between "yellow" and "beige" in that video Caz posted, by PM if appropriate?

Thank you.

He talks about "yellow" as something he does, his lama did and his lama's lama did, etc. Then someone for some reason comes along and says "yellow is not good anymore, do beige instead."
Given his lineage and his lamas, I don't think it takes that much knowledge to work out why zach posted it and that discussion of what he is talking about breaks DW TOS.

The video is very interesting. He pretty much seems to be revelling in his role as cult leader, saying everything he thinks, then saying that of course that's not what he really thinks because if he did he wouldn't get the money and adoration of the "stupid" Malaysians, which he obviously does get. He seems almost psychopathic.
