Chris Farmer has kindly added further comments on [christopherhansard.blogspot.com
] do please stop by and appraise yourself of his position concerning the speculation and concern surrounding Tibetan Way. Meanwhile, here is Chris's response (featured below in RED with emphasis added) to the questions I presented, I am most grateful for his taking the time to furnish such revealing information:
"At which Tibetan Medical Institute did Tibetan Way, or individuals associated with it, study Tibetan medicine?"Answer: I don't know I am only a freelance developer and not privy to that information.
"What did the course syllabus comprise of?"Answer: I don't know I am only a freelance developer and not privy to that information.
"Which dates did any empoyee or associate of Tibetan Way (or individuals asociated with it) study Tibetan medicine at such an institute?"Answer: I don't know I am only a freelance developer and not privy to that information.
"What was the name of Tibetan Doctors who administered and taught either Tibetan Way, or any persons asociated with it?"Answer: I don't know I am only a freelance developer and not privy to that information.
"Can Tibetan Way provide any qualification or certification documenting that it (or persons associated with it) received an authentic and formal course of study in Tibetan medicine at a recognised Tibetan institue of medicine?"Answer: I don't know I am only a freelance developer and not privy to that information.
"Will he, or others asociated with Tibetan Way, please make publicly available a formal written statement affirming that Christopher Hansard has no past, current or potential future involvement with Tibetan Way?"Answer: I have already stated here, and in the Forum, that CH is not involved with Tibetan Way. That reply is effectively in writing and the forum is a public place so why do you keep asking the same question? What do you expect me to do to make this anymore public? Waste my time and money taking out full page adverts in every national newspaper or producing a 30 second advert for all the TV channels?
Curiously it would appear that Chris perceives my enquiries and speculation about Tibetan Way, and its possible association with Christopher Hansard as harrassment
and has suggested that he may well take the matter up with the Police. If that is the case there is a sadness that Chris may have allowed, possibly personal feelings, to cloud his intelligence, experience and understanding? Well,for the record please note that I hold no malice or ill-feeling towards your person whatsover, my efforts have simply been to make speculative enquiries and contribute to the discussion and concerns which have been raised regarding Tibetan Way. Specifically whether it has any recognised qualification or authentic training in Tibetan medicine. Moreover, like others on this forum I am most curious to examine what, if any, is the relationship between Tibetan Way and Christopher Hansard? To that end my enquiries have speculated upon such themes and presented relevant, reasonable and important questions, which it would appear from your response above, you are unable to address. Apart that is from your assertion that Hansard has no association with Tibetan Way.
While your efforts to respond to such enquiries have been acknowledged and welcomed, with respect they do not of themslves constitute formal, definitive or verifiable information, which is why there is a vacuum filled by continuing speculation. hence my appeal that you and/or Tibetan Way provide a formal statement on Christopher Hansard and written evidence of its credentials in Tibetan medicine.
I am confident you will appreciate that this matter will not simply recede into the mists, there is too much interest and concern for that to happen, nor will such enquiry be deflected or diluted by those who may seek to misrepresent, what is a reasonable and legitimate speculation, as some form of defamation. As I have stated on this forum and elsewhere I would welcome an opportunity to examine, under the full and enquiring glare of legal scrutiny and media publicity, the claims and activities of Christopher Hansard. Who knows what may be disclosed.
