That is my point.
In Drepung Loseling Univeristy where they would know if this guy is a tulku, he is well known and his work there is everywhere, so I too started with researching thru the internet and found little,but after coming to Drepung while I was in India made a world of difference.
He is not only well known but he has been elected to the office of senior Rinpoche at the Lubum Khagtsen, and all I can say is this guy is not a fake or trying to delude anyone with false claims that everyone I have spoken to in Drepung only tells one story after another of how this guy Ron Spencer who they call H.H. Buddha Maitreya or Lama Dorje Rinpoche.
I do not understand why the west has so little awareness of this american Tulku who Drepung in India has know for over 9 years!
I guess it is because few people actually investigate his claims, like the Monasteries he says he is in charge of, or his claims to enthroned as a Tulku.
I am going to Dharmsala in 3 days and intend to ask around to see if I can find the Buddhist Center that he claims he is the Teacher of and the Stupa he claims to be building at the residence of the Dalai Lama for all the Tibetans who Died for Tibet freedom.
I will see if it is true and share what I find.
I am very open to Lama's telling me he is a fake.
I have asked if other people have made claim's and try to buy recogition from tibetans for there on ego or profit, like many have claimed was the case for Steven Seigal who has been dealing with this negative attck on his character since a famouse rinpoche made the recognition, and High lama's are very aware of this, and all westerners are always doubted by Lama's when they claim to be a tulku, especialy if someone claimed to be there Buddha Incarnated , this is wrong to them and they get very aggressive in avoiding this problem.
Anyway I hope someone else take some time and really check this out with Lubum Khagtsen and why do they beleive this western Tulku is Buddha Maitreya.
Mr.Thurman's teacher is Gelek Rinpoche who knows of Tulku Buddha Maitreya according to Nargy Khagtsen in Drepung, the Kagtsen Gelek Rinpoche comes from. I am not sure if Mr Thruman Knows of Tulku Buddha Maitreya, but I am sure his teacher does.
You should check with Gelek Rinpoche at the Jewel Heart in Michigan.
The picture I am including was given to me and is a copy of the picture on many of the alters in Drepung India of Tulku Buddha Maitreya from America. This was Taken in Tibet at a very large Enthronement ceremony in the Gelupa sect. They have pictures of him with the same Hat the Dalai Lama wears when he teaches.
