We cannot rewrite history. If it is baseless name-calling and tar and feathering like in the "Public Announcement", then it could be construed "pabongkha-bashing". If it is a recounting of historical events and sectarian language in Pabongkha's own works, it is simply a relaying of information. We cannot re-write history in order to be respectful of lineage gurus.As I go back over the pages of this thread, there is a lot of Pabongkha bashing going on.
I encouraged Caz, who is young, many many times to learn some basic written Tibetan so he could read the collected works of Pabongkhapa for himself as well as the relevant historical documents, or at least plug them into a dictionary. That way he would have an informed opinion, rather than simply going on "Gen so-and-so told me Geshe so-and-so said this" and using that as a basis for what he believes.
My feeling (correct me if I'm wrong) is that Caz would not be encouraged to learn Tibetan within your organization, because then he might be in a position to know more, or have more access to resources, than the leadership.
All I'm asking Caz to do is cast a wider net to develop his opinions rather than going on blind faith and emotional devotion. That is just fundamentalism.
