Legal Requirement to Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa

Case 05-2015: Lama Ole Nydahl

Legal Requirement to Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa

 

January 24, 2018

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, after concluding an ethical trial in 2015, sentenced Ole Nydahl as Responsible for Discrimination, False Buddhism and False Spirituality, Violation of Buddhist ethical precepts, Political Persecution and Attack on Human Right to Freedom of Expression. Then, in May 2017 an Act of repudiation against Thaye Dorje 17th Gyalwa Karmapa was issued for his continued support of Ole Nydahl, requiring him to take action against this individual, because his Islamophobic teachings are a betrayal of the Buddhist Path, by warning that inaction and passivity before these facts would constitute an Act of Complicity. However, Thaye Dorje 17th Gyalwa Karmapa simply replied that he hoped that the work of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee serves to cool emotions and help all sentient beings on the Path to Enlightenment.

Due to the fact that on January 18, 2018 the International Buddhist Ethics Committee issued a LEGAL WARNING to the Karma Kagyu Lineage requesting the immediate expulsion of Ole Nydahl as a member of that Buddhist School for teaching Islamophobic ideas that undermine the sacredness and purity of Buddhist Spirituality, Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa is immediately informed about the violations against Buddhist Ethics committed by both Ole Nydahl and those spiritual leaders who are endorsing him.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee agrees with Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa that the Islamophobic and genocidal actions of certain Bhikkhus of Myanmar affect not only their own reputations but the reputation of all Buddhists. For this reason, it is requested that the same criteria be applied to Ole Nydahl, Responsible for Discrimination, False Buddhism and False Spirituality, Violation of the Buddhist ethical precepts, Political Persecution and Attack on the Human Right to Freedom of Expression, having to be expelled from the Sangha, otherwise his permanence would affect the ethical and spiritual reputation of all the Buddhists of the Karma Kagyu Lineage.

Therefore, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee asks for wise and compassionate support from Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, requiring him to support an expulsion process against Ole Nydahl with the aim of purifying these acts of misbehavior and corruption that undermine the spiritual mission of the Karma Kagyu Lineage. The only reason why Ole Nydahl still belongs to the Karma Kagyu Lineage is a monetary reason, although corruption violates the principles established by Buddhist Law.

Always with a spirit of reconciliation (maitri),

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

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