NOTIFICATION to Ven. Dhammananda

Case 25-2017: Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society

NOTIFICATION to Ven. Dhammananda

On January 18, 2018, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights communicates with Ven. Dhammananda following the Judgment that was made against the Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society for the crimes of Violation of Buddhist Law and Complicity with Spiritual Fraud and False Buddhism, which was sentenced as of said institution has refused to cancel a prize given to the scammer named “Ronald Lloyd Spencer”. Although the Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society was offered to make a Conciliation Agreement, this institution decided to break the agreement, deciding to keep the award given to the criminal “Ronald Lloyd Spencer”, who has used said prize as well as the image of Ven. Dhammananda to revalidate himself and continue to cheat hundreds of naive people.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights clearly considers that Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society is violating the sacredness of Buddhism through complicity with criminals. In fact, after receiving the Judgment, Dr Milind Jiwane President of Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society stated that he only follows “the Law of India” and that he won’t follow the “illegal way” of Buddhist Law. Obviously, these demonstrations demonstrate Dr Milind Jiwane’s profound lack of respect for Buddhism, ignoring that, according to International Human Rights Law, the Sangha has the right to maintain its own legal norms and traditions.

In this sense, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights declares nullity of all the prizes awarded by Ashwaghosh Buddhists Foundation Nagpur (India) & Jeewak Welfare Society, such as the “Sakyamuni Buddha International Award”, requesting Ven. Dhammananda to destroy or return the prize she has received from this institution that is Responsible for Violation of Buddhist Law and Complicity with Spiritual Fraud and False Buddhism.

Finally, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee provides full solidarity with the quest for equal rights for Buddhist women, something that has been explicitly pointed out in the Buddhist Convention on Human Rights during the Eighth Buddhist Council. Thus, all the Bhikkhunis of the world are offered access to full scholarships to study advanced courses, and there is even the possibility of presenting complaints in the Ethics Committee when they are discriminated because of their status as women.

With a spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

President and Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
