"So from a tibetan buddhist perspective ...one could argue that these young women caused this by thier own bad karma ,because of what high buddhist lama told me that "people collectively create causal karma,cause and effect" or to put it more clrealy for wetsren minds "theres no smoke without fire" and that might well be true but fortunately for future no existent victims of this man what remains clear that in the eyes of british and american criminal law ,is that rape and sexual assault do so happen to be criminal offences......noty to be slighly ignored and brushed under the carpet so to speak....may the highest forces of justice prevail.....amen"
If your "high buddhist Tibetan lama" told you that any of these women brought rape or sex abuse on by themselves as a type of "causal karma" you are not speaking to a compassionate nor wise individual, or in my opinion a buddhist lama that is in fact "high". You are most likely speaking to a sexist man who doesn't want to admit that sex abuse happens amongst Tibetan Buddhist clergy to their students and to monks themselves.
It is totally insane to think that any of these women, some who were raped repeatedly by Mohan and held hostage and harassed for years by his so-called "devotees" brought any of this on by themselves. Mohan is a criminal, a sociopath and someone who will go on trial in September and went on trial in 2003 for the same exact crimes. He is a repeat sex offender this is absolutely not a matter of karma or guru worship. That is not even the true definition of karma, but an excuse to brush crimes under the rug of religious power.
Here is some information for you about what rape does to a victim:
After being raped it is common for the victim to experience intense, and sometimes unpredictable, emotions, and they may find it hard to deal with their memories of the event. Victims can be severely traumatized by the assault and may have difficulty functioning as well as they had been used to prior to the assault, with disruption of concentration, sleeping patterns and eating habits, for example. They may feel jumpy or be on edge. In the month(s) immediately following the assault these problems may be severe and very upsetting and may prevent the victim from revealing their ordeal to friends or family, or seeking police or medical assistance. This may result in Acute Stress Disorder. Symptoms of this are:
Feeling numb and detached, like being in a daze or a dream, or feeling that the world is strange and unreal
Difficulty remembering important parts of the assault
Reliving the assault through repeated thoughts, memories, or nightmares
Avoidance of things, places, thoughts, and/or feelings that remind the victim of the assault
Anxiety or increased arousal (difficulty sleeping, concentrating, etc.)
Avoidance of social life or place of rape
It can also cause Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However while the effects of rape can be truly horrible, and can impact some survivors' ability to function, it is important to remember that a survivor's response to rape is as unique and different as every person is. In fact a survivor may not have any of these responses to the rape, or they may have them, but not immediately following the assault. It's important to remember that there is no one correct way for a survivor of assault to respond to it.
Rape has been regarded as "a crime of violence and control" since the 1970s. Psychological analysis literature identifies control as a key component in most definitions of privacy:
"Privacy is not the absence of other people from one's presence, but the control over the contact one has with them." (Pedersen, D. 1997).
"Selective control of access to the self." (Margulis, 2003)
Control is important in providing:
what is needed need for normal psychological functioning;
stable interpersonal relationships; and
personal development. (Pedersen, D. 1997)
Anger rape is characterized by physical brutality with the rapist using far more force than is necessary to subdue the victim. The experience for the offender is one that is of conscious anger and rage. He/she expresses his/her rage both physically and verbally upon the victim during the attack. His/her aim is to hurt and debase his or her victim. He/she often shows his/her contempt through abusive and profane language. The anger rapist considers rape the ultimate offense he/she can commit against the victim. Such a rapist strikes sporadically and infrequently, because the attack will discharge his/her anger and relieves his/her frustrations for a time. But eventually he/she will reach his/her boiling point once more and offend again. His/her need is to hurt and degrade his/her victim, his/her weapon being sex and his/her motive is revenge. The research on convicted rapists has found several important motivational factors in the sexual aggression of males. Those motivational factors repeatedly implicated are having anger at women and having the need to control or dominate them. In one study, it was found that rapists had less empathy toward women that had been sexually assaulted by an unknown assailant and more hostility toward women than nonsex offenders and nonoffender males/females.
The objective of the power rapist is to control the victim, not to harm them. Sexuality becomes a way to compensate for their underlying feelings of inadequacy and feeds their issues of mastery, control, strength, authority and capability. The power rapist relies upon verbal threats, intimidation with a weapon, and only uses the amount of force necessary to subdue his victim. The power rapists tends to have fantasies about sexual conquests and rape. They may even believe that even though the victim initially resists them, that once they overpowers their victim, the victim will eventually enjoy the rape. The rapist needs to believe that the victim enjoyed "it", and they may even ask the victim for a date later. Because this is only a fantasy, the rapist does not feel reassured by either their own performance or the victim's response. The rapist feels that they must find another victim, convinced that this victim will be "the right one". Hence, their offenses may become repetitive and compulsive. They may commit a series of rapes over a short period of time. The feminist theory of rape theory is summarized by Susan Brownmiller's statement: "rape is nothing more or less than a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear". It asserts that what feminists see as the male domination of female in socio-political and economic domains is the ultimate cause of most rapes, and considers male-female rape to be a crime of power that has little or nothing to do with sex itself. Social learning theory of rape is similar to the feminist theory and links cultural traditions such as imitation, sex-violence linkages, rape myths (e.g. "women secretly desire to be raped"), and desensitization to the core causes of rape. The focus is on male-female rape with no explanations offered for male-male or female-perpetrated forms of rape.
Warren Farrell took issue with the feminist idea that rape has nothing to do with sex by noting that (male-female) rape statistics show young and sexually attractive females are raped far more often than older, less sexually attractive females.
In the sadistic rape, the rapist transforms anger and power so that aggression becomes sexual and thus eroticized for them. The rapist finds intentional maltreatment of their victim sexually gratifying. The rapist takes pleasure in the victims torment, distress and anguish. Sadistic rape usually involves torture and restraint. Sometimes it can take on ritualistic or other bizarre qualities. The victim's injuries will be primarily focused on the sexual areas of her body; there may be mutilation of these areas. The rapist may use some type of instrument or foreign object to penetrate his victim. The sadistic rapists' assaults are deliberate, calculated and preplanned. They will often wear a disguise or will blindfold his victim. Prostitutes or other women whom they perceives to be "promiscuous" are often the sadistic rapists targets. The victims of a sadistic rapist may not survive the attack. For some offenders, the ultimate satisfaction is gained from murdering the victim.
Though anger and power are believed to be the primary motivation for most rapes, Richard Felson and James Tedeschi contend that sadism is a significant motivation to rapists. Felson believes that rape is an aggressive form of sexual coercion and the goal of rape is sexual satisfaction rather than power. Most rapists do not have a preference for rape over consensual sex. In one study, rapists evaluated with penile plethysmography demonstrated more arousal to forced sex and less discrimination between forced and consensual sex than non-rapist control subjects, though both groups responded more strongly to consensual sex scenarios.
its funny how truly blind this young lady is......so she had this beautiful experience.

I'm not sure what you are referring to here, Bob in this line. What beautiful experience? Who is blind here? I'm starting to think that you are one of Mohan's devotees and that people on this board should ignore you. If you still need proof, contact Nicholas Giles at UK Metro Police in London or Sarah Hunter they are handling the prosecution and the trial in September of Mohan. I have spoken to both of them personally as have many other people. If you believe that detectives and policemen and women lie about criminal trials and arrests, then I can't help you. Good luck. I'm sorry you have suffered as a result of being "treated" by Mohan. You are not alone.
