NOTICE to His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

CASE 37-2017: Ven. Lama Lobzang

 

NOTICE to His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

 

On February 03, 2018, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights communicates with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso as a result of four issues compromising Buddhist Ethics and Tibetan Buddhism.

The first issue is the Judgment that has been carried out against Ven. Lama Lobzang of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) for the crime of Violation of Buddhist Law, which was sentenced based on inaction and complicit silence by Ven. Lama Lobzang in the face of the participation of the criminal “Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar) as Patron of the IBC. Even though Ven. Lama Lobzang received multiple legal acts, notifications and legal requirements on this matter, he decided to ignore the rulings and opinions of the Committee and Tribunal.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights recalls that on August 05, 2017, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, as Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), also received a Legal Requirement to intervene on this matter that compromises the integrity of the entire Buddhism. In said legal requirement, the charges for which Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa was declared responsible were: Complicity with Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing, Crimes against humanity and peace, Violation of the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples, Violation of Freedom of expression, Violation of the rights of women and children, Complicity with discrimination, Oppression and illegal detentions against the Buddhist Sangha, Violation of the Buddhist Legal Code (Vinaya) and False Buddhism. Also, in said legal requirement, His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso was requested as follows:

  • that the immediate suspension and expulsion of the Patron “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” be carried out because this individual has been involved in genocidal activities and Crimes against Humanity in Myanmar, which constitutes not only a violation of Buddhist Law but also the worst violation of the International Human Rights Law.
  • that he should require Lama Lobzang to urgently initiate the suspension and subsequent expulsion of the Patron named “ Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa “(Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), as this individual neither deserve to be a member nor a Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC).
  • to advise Lama Lobzang to behave appropriately, following the most appropriate and correct standards of Buddhist Spirituality, which should never be involved in genocidal acts and international crimes in violation of Human Rights.

This issue has been totally ignored by the high officials of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), even in face-to-face requests submitted at meetings of this organization. Therefore, such organization accumulates legal ethical judgments against two of its highest members: Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa and Ven. Lama Lobzang. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights clearly considers that the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) should be on the side of the oppressed peoples, such as the Rohingya People and the hundreds of thousands of women and children who have been persecuted, violated and killed by the civil-military regime of Myanmar of which Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa is a member. For this reason, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is urgently requested as a Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) to initiate a process of purification of this institution that has been spiritually corrupted by keeping genocidal and corrupt members in it, by requiring this institution to follow the highest ethical standards and that it be cleansed of all complicity with the mundane powers that are destroying the world. In case that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso does not wish to be involved in this matter, he is requested to resign publicly as Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC); otherwise there would be complicity with the violations of the Buddhist Ethics carried out by this organization.

The second issue that is required to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is about his “U.S. Congressional Gold Medal “, which was given by the government of the United States of America led by George W. Bush. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights considers that the act of receiving this award represents an indirect endorsement of the American government, being a violation of Buddhist Ethics in the context of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes against peace carried out by the USA against the people of Iraq, as evidenced by the proofs analyzed during the “U.N. Case” by the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, and also as shown by the judgment made by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal against the ex-presidents George W. Bush and Tony Blair. For this reason, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee asks His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso to please return this prize, given that it constitutes an endorsement of human rights violations, which undoubtedly violates the Buddhist Ethics. In the event that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso does not wish to return the prize, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee thinks that he should at least donate it to the Tibetan Government in Dharamsala, which would allow Buddhism to be free from the implications of being associated with a prize coming from a government that commits international crimes.

The third issue to inform to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is about the judgment received by Lama Ole Nydahl of the Karma Kagyu lineage. In 2015, he was found 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. As a result of such events, Thaye Dorje 17th Gyalwa Karmapa and Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa have been publicly required to expel Ole Nydahl from the Karma Kagyu lineage due to the continuous acts of Islamophobia from this individual who violate the sacredness and purity of the Buddhist Spirituality. Given that Ole Nydahl brings millionaire financial resources, so far he enjoys total impunity within the Karma Kagyu School, which is why His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to protect Tibetan Buddhism and publicly require Thaye Dorje 17th Gyalwa Karmapa and Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa to carry out an appropriate ethical sanction against Ole Nydahl and against all those who practice Islamophobia within this Tibetan school, as it is a practice that violates the Buddhist Law and the International Human Rights Law. Ole Nydahl is a false spiritual master who dishonors not only Tibetan Buddhism, but all Buddhist schools in the world.

The fourth issue to discuss with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is about Sogyal Rinpoche, who recently resigned in 2017 due to multiple complaints of sexual harassment from his female students that flooded the media. However, in the public evidence that is being studied by the Prosecutor’s Office of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee there are strong indications that the Rigpa School of Tibetan Buddhism already had full knowledge of the sexual abuses of Sogyal Rinpoche for more than 20 years. For this reason, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee decides to question His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso about whether he was aware of these abuses, and in case the answer is affirmative, it would be essential to know the reasons why he remained silent before these serious violations against the rights of women. It is recalled that in the advanced jurisprudence of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, any kind of silence in the face of violations of human rights constitutes an act of complicity.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights respectfully requests His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso to respond urgently to the four points required. At the same time, it is made clear that there is no kind of animosity against His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, since these four points are required for the sake of Buddhism. In addition, several institutions that are part of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights in the past have sent several shows of affection and recognition to, such as letters of support, Honorary PhDs degrees and Spiritual Recognitions, although each of those actions have been ignored. In addition, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is invited to submit all proofs he may have on violations carried out against the human rights of Tibetan People.

 

With spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

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