An open letter to HH Dalai Lama from Ursache\Wirkung publisher Peter Riedl.
Office of H.H. the Dalai Lama
McLeod Ganj – 176 219
I write to you to convey my grave concerns. I believe that at this time, there is a possibility that harm could befall Tibetan Buddhism and the people who believe in it.
Ole Nydahl incites his disciples against people of Islamic faith. Sogyal Rinpoche and Mipham Rinpoche have materially and spiritually abused their students.
In the system of Tibetan Buddhism, there are complex and subtle ways in which practitioners should follow their lama.
In this current atmosphere, it is of utmost importance to tell all people, especially the followers of these teachers, that it can never be Buddhist practice to incite hatred or to harm people.
