PY the martial arts teacher Many thanks to anon27 for his comprehensive debunking of PY’s supposed claim of superiority and teaching ability in martial arts (and by extension, Buddhism), in response to a question from me. It is important and beneficial for ex-students’ recovery. Text has been slightly edited to correct typos and maintain anonymity. Dear anon27, In the forum you state

This is the testimony of "Chime", who was a student from 2009-2012. Text has been slightly edited for grammar and readability. I met Peter Yeung (PY) and his entourage back in April 2009 in Athens where I was living at that time. It was a very difficult period for me — I was sad and with no motivation in my life, a girl in her late 20s who was trying to find her place in the wo

Reposting a recent message from another ex-student, with his permission. QuoteBen Hi there, Pretty random how I found as I was looking for some incense. I was a student of PY from the late 90’s moving to live in Newcastle in 2000, I stayed there and experienced much of what had been described by others on your site until my “Buddha nature” spoke to me to leave in 2004, ironic as PY would h

How PY financially exploits his students Having extracted myself from Pathgate before completely depleting my financial resources, and before completely losing my connection to mainstream society, I can’t help but feel immense relief. I spent much time reacquainting myself with authentic Buddhist teachings and filtering out PY’s distortions, in order to free myself from his brainwashing around

A Timeline of PY This is anon27's timeline of PY. He was a student at Pathgate for 20 years. 1993 PY was a small-time martial arts teacher, with about 6 dedicated students and 20-40 casual students spread across London and Newcastle. He was just trying to break into the alternative healing / wellness world. He'd bought a large house with a pool in the basement with the first, a

I have wondered over the years why Peter Yeung (PY) didn’t have more students from his local area in Newcastle, or the UK for that matter; international students make up the bulk of his current following. PY brainwashed these students by explaining that locals lack the merit to learn from around an authentic lama. But a simple examination would reveal the more straightforward truth — locals ha

Peter Young (PY) has been barred from entering Australia during his attempted entry in January 2019.

Peter Young’s relationship with Palyul and H.H. Penor Rinpoche Peter Young (PY) has no official connection to Nyingma, Palyul or Namdroling. Past emails to Namdroling verifying his authenticity were unanswered. This is the Tibetan way of saying "he is nothing to do with us". They refuse to acknowledge PY. I have never seen any real connection with Palyul. PY puts their name on the Pa

Misteaching the Middle Way Peter Young openly reminds his students not to think, and not to read Buddhist texts. What we have come to realise as we free ourselves from his influence, is that if anyone actually utilised their critical minds, done their due diligence and investigated Buddha’s teachings, they would discover that PY does not have the deep understanding of Buddhism he claims to pos

We have set up a website to include information to educate everyone on Peter Yeung's (PY), and to provide resources to help ex-students recover from the their traumatic time in Pathgate. We would like

I represent a growing number of ex-students of Lama Dondrup Dorje (Peter Yeung / Young) from Pathgate Institute of Buddhist Studies headquartered in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Some of us were long-time committed and devoted students who have left or forced out of his community due to his pattern of ethical misconduct over the past 30 years. Following recent revelations about other teachers who
