RE: Kawa Lhundrub
Oh yes, this is used as to keep people in line.
Also once you either leave on your own or are
expelled, members of the group in general will
cease any contacts with you as to not be
"contaminated" by your opposition to the problems
in the group. Which is a classic cult mechanism.
That's true. They cease contacts with ex members.
this fake pure vision :D
Yes, that's fake pure vision. That is also a violation of a bodhisattva vow that Ole Nydahl teaches. Moreover it turns the concepts of refuge and samaya into travesty.
I met several of Ole´s students who got fire arms license and regularly train at the shooting range in order to "defend themselves from immigrants".
I have heard about that. Some of Ole's students are apparently militarized.
to demonstrate that it is in reality not a Buddhist group, but a personality cult
Yes. The point I am making is that the cornerstone of a personality cult is the scapegoat mechanism. I remember that people were citing on this forum a French philosopher who in his works described how a personality cult emerges and how scapegoating and exclusions from “religious” (or rather para-religious) communities are a necessary and founding mechanism of such cults.
Shortly after this discussion unfolded on Rick Ross Forum, the Wikipedia web page of this philosopher was taken down. The references to his work previously existing on other Wikipedia web pages, were also deleted. It is a common knowledge that diamond way Buddhists are actively and openly encouraged by Ole to become Wikipedia editors and they exercise an active influence on the content of Wikipedia.
We are talking here not only about violations of Buddhist samaya, vows and precepts. We are talking about violations of human rights and existing legislations.
Ole Nydahl makes sure that the people who become scapegoats are vulnerable enough not to be able to defend themselves. It is a ruthless practice.
Earlier someone on this forum has recalled an incident when Tomek Lehnert
broadcasted an email to all Diamond Way centres (they have 700 of them) letting everyone know that a particular person from Russia was excluded from the Diamond Way and was not supposed to be let in to any of Ole’s centres. Not only was a full name and family name of this person included in this letter. Tomek also included a photo of the excluded man. That’s how it is done. This is not a trivial matter.
As we can see these types of emails with explicit or implicit threats of exclusions are regular communications and are deliberately designed to trigger certain social mechanisms and reactions.
A friend of mine remembers that shortly after Tomek sent this email, the diamond way sangha that he was a member of, viciously expelled another man from the centre. For nothing really. He has done no wrong. They have just followed the example from the top.
