Evidence 1: Judgment on State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee & Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa

BUDDHIST TRIBUNAL ON HUMAN RIGHTS: “Dear Prosecutor, Public Defender, Ambassador and Jury Members of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR), regarding the case against the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na), hereby, on August 23, 2016, it is set down on record that the Case 18-2016 of the Buddhist Tribunal has concluded to analyze the Human Rights violation carried out by the accused. This case has been conducted as a result of previous cases as is the Case 02-2015 against the government of Myanmar, but also from the Case 01-2015 against Ashin Wirathu where it was determined that the PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION OF MYANMAR (MA BA THA ) acted with the complicity of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na).  Having analyzed the presentation of the case and validation of the vast amount of evidence, it has proceeded with the unanimous vote of 7 members of the Jury, all of whom have sentenced the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) as “Responsible” for the serious crimes of FALSE BUDDHISM and VIOLATION OF THE BUDDHIST LEGAL CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION and ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST THE BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILD, VIOLATION ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF TRIBAL and INDIGENOUS PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE and ETHNIC CLEANSINGThe actions of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) have produced enormous damage against Buddhism, but also against autochthonous communities like the Rohingya People, by promoting oppression, discrimination, violation of human rights, authoritarianism, corruption, impunity, kidnapping, torture, unlawful imprisonment, censorship, social segregation, cultural cleansing and even mass killings. These terrible actions prove that members of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) have breached both the ethical and spiritual precepts of the Buddhist People as well as international Human Rights instruments. Even though nowadays the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) has publicly distanced itself from the PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION OF MYANMAR (MA BA THA) due to a change of government occurred, justice should not operate according to the swaying of the political circumstances, neither the facts of the past may remain unpunished.  In accordance with the organization Human Rights Watch, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights confirms that many of those who have generated violence between Buddhic People and the Islamic Community have been fake monks (singang woot), being rather soldiers or governmental agents disguised as bhikkhus, as is the case of Ashin Wirathu. However, it is also clarified that many others have been members of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na). By allying with the dictatorial government of Myanmar, which was responsible for carrying out genocide and crimes against humanity, the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) has totally perverted the Buddhist Spirituality, just as Christianity did it when it allied with the Roman Empire. The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights considers that spiritual movements should never be allied with military governments, since this fact inherently contradicts the pacifist position of the great spiritual masters of history, like Gautama and Jesus. As a result of this ethical perversion, State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) has co-participated with the military dictatorship in Myanmar in violating the human rights, betraying the teachings of Gautama and the Buddhist Law (Vinaya). Buddhist Spirituality has the mission and Purpose (Dharma) to save the whole world, creating a Pure Earth of justice and love, so that any movement that threatens this humanitarian objective and is based on greed, hatred and delusion is a False Buddhism. Therefore, any Buddhist group that is related to the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na), even if it is only on an intellectual or academic level, will remain a silent accomplice to these heinous violations of Buddhist Ethics and Human rights, which have unfortunately led to the first Buddhist genocide in the history of humankind. Certainly, the worst of all possible hells is that in which a Buddhist individual systematically inflicts damage to other living beings.  The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights recognizes that Buddhism should maintain the purity of its community, defending its autonomy, self-determination and freedom, because when States politically influence or economically control the Buddhist commune (sangha) it is started a Path of a cultural perversion, whose consequences are the Buddhist leaders’ complicity with governmental acts. Only by maintaining the strength of political, legal and cultural institutions of Buddhic People is that it can be avoided to fall into the perversion of governmental control or interference over the spiritual commune (sangha). Thus, the case of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) is a great teaching for humanity, because it shows perfectly what the fate of Spirituality is when it allows to be governmentally controlled. Instead, when Spirituality remains itself independent from governmental control it can then deploy all the libertarian power of compassionate wisdom (prajna-karuna).  Following the Way of Master Gautama, who created an autonomous and revolutionary community, the task of the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is to be the ethical supervisor of the world, ensuring that the Buddhist commune (sangha) at international level is not perverted, so that the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) has been denounced and sentenced for the charges of FALSE BUDDHISM and VIOLATION OF THE BUDDHIST LEGAL CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION and ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST THE BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILD, VIOLATION ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF TRIBAL and INDIGENOUS PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE and ETHNIC CLEANSING.  This Ethical Judgment is evidence that the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na) attempts against the Buddhist Ethics and Human Rights, constituting the highest perversion and attack against Buddhist Spirituality in 2600 years of history.”

 

Evidence 2: Notification to International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

BUDDHIST TRIBUNAL ON HUMAN RIGHTS: “On July 29, 2017, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is communicating with Lama Lobzang Secretary General of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) following the news that Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar) is an IBC “Patron” member, being recognized by the IBC with the rank of “His Holiness”. In the face of this terrible news, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights informed the IBC that on August 23, 2016 the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar was sentenced for the serious crimes of FALSE BUDDHISM And VIOLATION OF THE BUDDHIST LEGAL CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION AND ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, VIOLATION OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS AND TRIBAL PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING. Faced with this situation, Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa clearly has no ethical legitimacy to become a Patron Member of the IBC, which is why we officially request a response by Secretary General Lama Lobzang within the next 7 days to the Buddhist Tribunal and urgently initiate a Formal procedure in order to expel Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, otherwise the IBC would be endorsing these crimes committed by the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar, which would be disastrous for the spiritual legitimacy of Buddhism at a global level. In case Secretary-General Lama Lobzang decides to ignore the Notification made by the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, it will be considered an act of Complicity with the crimes committed by Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, being a clear Violation of Buddhist Law. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) all necessary support in this matter linked not only to violations of the Buddhist Ethics of the Sangha but also linked to violations of International Human Rights Law.”

 

Evidence 3: Legal Requirement to Spiritual Patrons of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

BUDDHIST TRIBUNAL ON HUMAN RIGHTS: “Dear His Holiness the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness Thich Pho Tue, His Holiness Master Jinje & His Holiness Sanghanayaka Sudhananda Mahathero, As a result of the lack of response by Lama Lobzang, Secretary General of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), to a formal Notification dated July 29, 2017 where he is requested to initiate a process of expulsion of the IBC Patron named “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), we inform Their Holinesses the terrible situation of violation of Buddhist Law that is being committed by the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the immediate suspension and expulsion of the Patron “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” 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 International Human Rights Law. Indeed, the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar was previously sentenced in 2016 as Responsible for the serious crimes of FALSE BUDDHISM and VIOLATION OF THE BUDDHIST LEGAL CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION and ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, VIOLATION OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS AND TRIBAL PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING.  Maintaining criminals within the Buddhist Community (Sangha) is an attack on the sacredness of the Spirituality founded by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha 2600 years ago. Therefore, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests Their Holinesses to require Lama Lobzang to urgently initiate the suspension and subsequent expulsion of the Patron named “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa “(Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), since this individual does not deserve to be a member nor a Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). In case the Lama Lobzang continues to fail in his functions to maintain ethical and moral purity of the Great Buddhist Commune (Maha-Sangha), then we will be obliged to be faithful to Truth and Justice by ruling the Complicity of Lama Lobzang with violations of Buddhist Law and Human Dignity. As Patrons of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), we urge Their Holinesses to advise Lama Lobzang to behave properly, following the most appropriate and correct standards of Buddhist Spirituality, which should never be involved in genocidal acts and international crimes violating Human Rights.”

 

Evidence 4: Resolution on Lama Lobzang – Secretary General of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

BUDDHIST TRIBUNAL ON HUMAN RIGHTS: “Recalling the principles of Buddhist Law, human rights and fundamental freedoms established by international instruments, such as the Buddhist Legal Code (Vinaya) adopted by the spiritual commune (Sangha), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the UN, and Universal Declaration on the Rights of Buddhist Peoples and Spiritual Communities adopted by the United Buddhist Nations Organization (UBNO); Whereas such rights and freedoms include political, economic, cultural and environmental rights, among which religious liberty and the supreme human right to peace are found; Aware that the Buddhist Nation possesses a spiritual distinction with regard to the rest of the international community, and this is not due to racial issues but to the possession of a higher ethic and a mission of Liberation of all beings that it should never be violated; Reaffirming the Sentences of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights in the Case Ashin Wirathu, the Case Myanmar and the Case of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee; Deeply concerned about the systematic and widespread situation of human rights violations occurring in Myanmar through military regimes and democratic governments that persecute the Rohingya People, subjecting hundreds of thousands of people to an oppressive situation of Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against humanity, as demonstrated in the jurisprudence of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights; Deploring that this terrible situation of violation of human rights in Myanmar is supported by corrupt bhikkhus grouped in the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na), who have been sentenced for the serious crimes of FALSE BUDDHISM and VIOLATION OF BUDDHIST CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION AND ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, VIOLATION OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS AND TRIBAL PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING; Taking into consideration that the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) has Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar) as its Spiritual Patron, and that the IBC has not responded to the legal requirements and notifications produced by the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights where it is urgently requested the expulsion of Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa; Examining that the intent of Lama Lobzang Secretary General of the IBC to ignore this serious violation of human rights, as IBC Spiritual Patrons were previously advised, constitutes an act of Complicity with violations of Buddhist Law, since the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar has participated in the worst crimes that can be committed in Buddhist Law: murder (manussaviggaha), which is a reason for immediate expulsion within the Buddhist Commune (Sangha); Bearing in mind that the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights initiated a legal case against the WORLD PEACE PRIZE AWARDING COUNCIL, since this institution gave a Peace Prize to Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, which would constitute a possible Act of Complicity with Crimes against Peace; Expressing concern at the fact that this criminal False Buddhism propagated in Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand, which conveys fascist visions and contrary to the pacifist principles taught by Gautama, is being supported by one of the most important organizations of Buddhism around the world, as is the IBC, which constitutes a Violation of Buddhist Law by Lama Lobzang; States that the Buddhist Spirituality is the first movement in the history of humanity that regulated the practice and theory of the human rights as a defense of the intrinsic dignity or dharmic nature of beings. Recommends that IBC not to depend on government funds, since it corrupts the independence of the spiritual commune (sangha) and links it to corrupt political interests. Calls on the IBC to immediately cancel the condition of Spiritual Patron held by Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), also requesting that it ceases to be called with the rank of “His Holiness” to someone who has participated in the most terrible crimes of International Law. Solemnly stipulates that any kind of violence in the realm of thought, word or acts is completely contrary to Buddhist Law, so that both criminals who commit these acts as well as those who are accomplices and endorse these immoral and illegal behaviors will be punished. Expresses that any spiritual recognition to whatsoever Peace Prize delivered to Dr Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa is illegal and immoral. Declares that the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar must be immediately closed for having participated directly or indirectly in Genocide, Crimes against Humanity and Crimes against Peace, having the duty to create a new organization that is not an accomplice of the human rights violations committed by the government of Myanmar, thus providing justice and purity to both people and the governors. Calls upon all the members of the Buddhist International Community (Maha-Sangha) not to abandon the Path of Righteousness, Detachment and Compassionate Wisdom developed by Gautama two thousand six hundred years ago.”

 

Evidence 5: Proclamation on Dhamma Vansanurakhitta Association – Buddha Dhamma Charity Foundation

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “Considering that in Case 01-2015 the International Buddhist Ethics Committee sentenced Ashin Wirathu and the 969 Movement for the crimes of Discrimination, Social Segregation, Apology of Violence and False Buddhism; Recalling that due to international pressure the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee superficially sanctioned the 969 Movement, only generating that this Islamophobic group changed its name to Ma Ba Tha (Organization for the Protection of Nationalism and Religion); Aware that Ma Ba Tha and the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee have actively assisted and collaborated with the Myanmar military regime led by former de facto President Thein Sein, actively supporting the Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against humanity against the Rohingya People; Deeply concerned because Myanmar’s new civil-military government led by de facto president Aung San Suu Kyi is worsening and continuing the genocidal policies against the Rohingya people in the eyes of the entire world, carrying out High Crimes against Peace; Deploring the fact that de facto president Aung San Suu Kyi carries out acts of Negationism, not only affirming that there is no kind of genocide, but also accusing the Rohingya people of terrorism; Analyzing that even the UN, through the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), has denounced terrible human rights violations committed by the government of Myanmar against the defenseless civilian population, such as torture, mass sexual abuses, forced disappearances and extrajudicial executions of children and babies, all of which is considered by Aung San Suu Kyi as fake news; Taking into consideration that the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee presided over by Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa was sentenced for False Buddhism and Violation of the Buddhist Legal Code, Oppression and Illegal Detentions against the Buddhist Sangha, Complicity with Discrimination, Violation of the rights of women and children, Violation of freedom of expression, Violation of the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples, Crimes against Humanity and Peace, and Complicity with Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing; Examining that Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee has received a Peace Prize from the criminal organization called WORLD PEACE PRIZE AWARDING COUNCIL (WPPAC), reason why the institution has been sentenced for the charges of Complicity with Crimes against Peace, Complicity with Violations of Buddhist Cultural Heritage, Defamation, Discrimination and Ethnocentrism, Threats and Violation of Human Rights, Corruption, Fraud and Organized Crime and Complicity with Genocide and Islamophobia; Bearing in mind that Lama Lobzang of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) has been asked to remove the status of Patron to Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa and to expel this individual for his international crimes, something that has been disobeyed by Lama Lobzang despite the warning that this would imply a violation of Buddhist Law; Expressing consternation at the fact that the extermination plan against the Rohingya People is still happening, with thousands of children and women killed, while the international community has not yet demanded Aung San Suu Kyi to stop her international crimes; Reaffirming the critique against the genocidal role of Buddhist Bhikkhus controlled by the government of Myanmar, among whom one can find Ashin Wirathu and the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee presided over by Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, being preachers of hatred, apartheid and genocide; Confirming the fact that due to the Judgment of the Buddhist Tribunal, the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee has banned the Ma Ba Tha group, although it has not banned its Islamophobic ideology, which is why Ma Ba Tha continues to exist under the name of the Dhamma Vansanurakhitta Association or Buddha Dhamma Charity Foundation; It is expressed absolute solidarity with the millions of innocent lives of the Rohingya People that are being systematically and widespreadly annihilated by the illegal government of Myanmar, being persecuted, stigmatized, discriminated, dehumanized, violated, segregated, raped and exterminated in a way as evil as the Holocaust carried out by Nazi regime. It is stated that the Dhamma Vansanurakhitta Association or Buddha Dhamma Charity Foundation is responsible for Complicity with Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity, and Violation of the Buddhist Law and Human Rights. It is declared that Lama Lobzang will be judged for Violation of Buddhist Law. It is manifested that people like Ashin Wirathu, who exist in Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Thailand, are destroying Buddhism through character assassination, attacking the intrinsic dignity of Spirituality. This Ethical Proclamation is invoked as an act of justice in the face of violations of Buddhist Law and Human Rights carried out by Ashin Wirathu, the State of Myanmar and the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee. It is recalled once again that the Buddhist Path is the Salvation of humanity and of the world through spiritual love.”

 

Evidence 6: Judgment on Ven. Lama Lobzang

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “Dear Prosecutor, Public Defender, Ambassador, Secretary and Jury Members of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR), regarding Case 41-2018 against “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche”, on April 1, 2018, it is hereby recorded that the trial of the Ethics Committee has been concluded to analyze the violation of the Buddhist Ethics carried out by the accused. After analyzing the presentation of the Case and the validation of proofs, the Committee has proceeded with the voting of 9 members of the Jury, confirming that there were 1 vote of “Insanity”, 1 vote of “Innocent” and 7 votes of “Responsible” for “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” for the serious crimes of Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law. When interpreting and giving voice to the vote of the Jury members, it is concluded that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” do not have any valid excuse to justify their Violations to Buddhist Ethics, because although they have recently publicly apologized, the acts of Sogyal Rinpoche are not the product of a mistake but constitute a deliberately pattern of criminal behavior chosen for more than 40 years, even being a behavior supported by the RIGPA Sect for more than 20 years since the first legal demand for sexual abuse came to public light. In this sense, the accused party, “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche”, has made a systematic plan of physical and psychological abuses through manipulations and frauds that swindled thousands of people to maintain a selfish lifestyle of sexual and labor exploitation. Sogyal Rinpoche systematically carried out coercion and sexual abuse, even creating a harem of young female sex slaves to obtain personal gratification to his promiscuity, causing enormous pain and confusion in his victims, who also received psychological mistreatment and physical violence on a daily basis. Sogyal Rinpoche has fraudulently promised to cure his students, by manipulating and sexually exploiting them, using his position of power in order to betray the ethical duty to help and release his students, so that his total lack of Compassionate Love perverts all values and ethical principles, causing many of his victims to doubt or disbelieve the sacredness and veracity of Buddhism. In this way, it is confirmed the fact that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” have illegally taken advantage and have subjected a large number of people seeking to learn Spirituality, using violence, brainwashing, forced labor, threats and multimillion dollar swindle as a part of their organized crime behavior. Evidences from the Case has shown that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” formed a criminal organization or illicit association, violating women’s rights and also violating the fundamental ethical principles and precepts of Buddhist Law, by reducing women to mere objects of sensual pleasure. Sogyal Rinpoche has had a totally contradictory behavior with regards to the Buddhist doctrine, establishing a personality cult that carried out million dollar swindles and covered up systematic sexual abuses in the name of Buddhism, claiming a Crazy Wisdom or non-conventional teaching to justify terrible violations to Buddhist Ethics, such as mental manipulation, physical violence, sexual abuse and hedonistic materialistic lifestyle. As the whole RIGPA organization was intended to satisfy the criminal behavior of Sogyal Rinpoche, along with his materialistic and lustful lifestyle, by systematically covering-up his fraudulent millionaire abuses and expenses, it is confirmed that RIGPA is not a Buddhist Community (Sangha) but a Criminal Sect having total ignorance of what Spiritual Love (Metta) means. Actually, True Wisdom should always be Compassionate and Sane, so that any master who speaks of violent or “crazy wisdom” will be committing spiritual fraud. Wisdom transmitted through a “non-conventional way” is undoubtedly the pacifism, social justice, advanced knowledge and ecology, because in a materialistic and destructive world, where it is normal for there to be war, poverty, ignorance and contamination, then Buddhism should adopt the “non-conventional way” of active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics, which is essentially love the fellow beings, never resorting to the ills of greed, violence and deceit. The awakened mind, the sane mind, is intrinsically “non-conventional”, always humble and serene, so that those people considering promiscuity and violence as non-conventional ways are actually maintaining the same conventional, pathological and perverse way of the rest of society. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee establishes the possibility of reaching a Post-Judgment Conciliatory Agreement with RIGPA in case they wish the annulment of the charges against them. In order to do good, to stop doing evil, and to purify oneself spiritually, following the Way of all the Buddhas, it is ruled that RIGPA should meet the following requirements: 1) Donate all its millionaire material possessions to Sogyal Rinpoche‘s victims; 2) Declaring Sogyal Rinpoche as a Non-Enlightened False Buddhist Master. Until this possible conciliation agreement does not happen, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” are Responsible for Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law. On the other hand, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee confirms that it is not possible to establish the legitimacy of an enlightened Buddhist master from the analysis of his celibacy. This is because there are some Buddhist lineages and schools that do not require their masters to be celibate, thus following Siddharta Gautama’s Middle Path that transcends both asceticism and hedonism. In this way, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee, as an organization that respects and incorporates the ancient knowledge of all spiritual traditions, affirms that Buddhist masters may certainly practice sexuality as long as they comply with the fundamental ethical precepts, practicing a righteous and appropriate love (samma pema) which does not hurt the fellow beings. This means that there should never be any kind of manipulation, deception, violence and debauchery, but that there must be Pure and True Love in a climate of reciprocal union. In this sense, following the international jurisprudence on cases of therapeutic relationships, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares as illegal the practice of genitality between master and student for being a practice very susceptible to be used for manipulation and abuse. However, there are two exceptions to this rule: 1) When the person who decides to establish a sexual relationship is not a current disciple of the spiritual master it will not constitute any kind of manipulation or abuse, since relations with friends or with former disciples lack any possible master-slave dialectic; 2) When the Buddhist master who established a spiritual marriage with his dharmic partner decides to practice a relationship of mutual support, mutual learning and growing-in-love it will not constitute any kind of manipulation or abuse.   Accordingly, in 2011 the Maitriyana established that Spiritual Love is that which teaches to tolerate Emptiness, not feeling fear or bitterness because what is shared is something Pure and Real; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to contemplate flowers, mutually learning from each other and growing-in-love; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to Awaken, calming the mind and lighting the spiritual Fire in the core of the Being; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to realize the Project of Freedom; Spiritual Love is that which saves forever in all the ways a person can be saved. The Buddhist Law teaches that, in order to cultivate a better world, an altruistic and harmonious civilization, it is necessary to cultivate and radiate the practice of Spiritual Love (Metta) to all beings. Only on this wise and compassionate foundation is that society can experience a life of happiness, goodness, peace, honesty, kindness, mutual support, humility, intelligence and detachment. This means that spiritual masters not only teach the individual to attain the Awakening (Bodhi), but also teach the community to live without anger, hostility and animosity, becoming a free and enlightened society. Following the path of masters Gautama and Jesus, the Maitriyana shows that the key to the Salvation and Evolution of humanity is Unlimited Spiritual Love (Agape) toward everyone, cultivating a reconciling spirit to all beings in the same way that the mothers and fathers care for their own children.[1] Therefore, the apprentice is required to practice Mindfulness in the here and now, valuing each moment of life as if it were the last one, and valuing the fellow being as if he or she were oneself, including the enemies, since the one who lives an Existence with virtues and clear vision understands that the path of greed, hatred and deceit leads to Self-destruction of humanity. In this sense, the Buddhist Law proclaims that True Spiritual Love (Metta) must have a spirit of self-sacrifice, so that one must renounce to protect one’s Ego, Ideology and State, in order to begin to defend Life, Spirituality and Mother Earth. This means that the Reconciling Love (Maitri) and the Supreme Compassion (Mahakaruna) promoted by the Free and Enlightened Beings (Arhats-Bodhisattvas) are expanded to all the humankind, to the whole nature and to the entire Multiverse. Thus, the Maitriyana shows that active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics are based on the understanding that the whole reality is interrelated and interdependent. The Buddhist Law has the Purpose (Dharma) or guiding principle of creating a wise and compassionate civilization, a friendly and altruistic world. This implies that the individual should go beyond the limits of romantic love in order to enter the unlimited field of Sublime and Spiritual Love (Metta) that constantly purifies and enlightens emotions, thoughts and actions. In effect, the apprentice who abandons the attachment to ordinary love is able to resacralize everyday life, living a free existence in the world. The Maitriyana confirms that romantic love is nothing but a primitive kind of affection that should be transcended if an individual decides to become a spiritual master and live without jealousy, resentment and illusions. The Free and Enlightened Beings (Arhats-Bodhisattvas) even transcend maternal love, because their commitment is not with the defense of a son or relative in particular, but rather with the protection of all sentient beings. In this way, Spiritual Love (Metta) is the highest Purpose (Dharma) by which a person can live, and therefore this is broadly related to the Love for Truth and Art, since Dharmic Passion always helps others to be cured from suffering and to live a real happiness. Therefore, there is a deep commitment to Goodness and Beauty, providing intelligence and empathy in relationships with others. According to Buddhist Law, the spiritual master must always be a good friend (kalyanamitta) who respects and helps people to achieve Awakening (Bodhi), instead of being a bad friend (papamitta) who dishonestly uses and manipulates others through greed, hatred and deceit. The Maitriyana then confirms that the force that awakens the mind and transforms the internal world is the same force of love that saves society and pacifies the external world. This pure and unconditional Spiritual Love (mahametta) not only does not produce suffering, but is an essential part of the path of Liberation, turning the apprentice into a Companion of the Way. While erotic love is based on attachment and is imperfect, impermanent and insubstantial, however, Spiritual Love is developed as the healthiest and most powerful force in the Universe, maintaining humility, transformation and openness at all times. In fact, the Reconciling Love (Maitri) constitutes the fourth pillar on which every individual should take refuge, along with the pillars of the Awakened Being (Buddha), the Purpose (Dharma) and the Spiritual Commune (Sangha). Therefore, the Buddhist Law recommends couples wishing to live happily that they should not be based on sex and material consumerism, but should share a common framework of conducts, beliefs and values. Precisely, the one who practices the Art of Contemplative Love never converts the loved one into an object that satisfies his or her needs, but actually honors him or her in every moment and place respecting his/her presence as a miracle, seeking he or she can be free of all attachment, waking up to the Truth of life, learning and growing-in-love. While erotic love is rebelled against what is Real and tries to keep people with attachment and egoistic desire, on the other hand, Spiritual Love (Metta) is an associate of Truth and tries to liberate others in a totally pure and unconditional way by means of a Sublimated Desire. In this sense, the Maitriyana totally criticizes those false spiritual masters, such as Ricardo Javier Ocampo, Adi Da and Sogyal Rinpoche, who have totally broken the ethical precepts of the practice of Spiritual Love (Metta) by means of harmful behavior to others, because they have carried out abusive and coercive behaviors instead of honoring the mission of Spirituality: to heal and liberate humanity. Thus, in order that there are no manipulations or distortions, the Buddhist Law describes what Pure Love (Metta) really is: reconciliatory, enjoyable, equanimous, wise and compassionate, non-violent, unconditional and universal. It is a Spiritual Love (Metta) free of attachment and selfishness, which turns the loved one into a Companion-of-Way on the path of Awakening of the internal world and Liberation of the external world. This is why the Maitriyana’s model of Super-Integral Buddhism (Mahapurna) evolves the Noble Eightfold Path of Gautama, incorporating the appropriate and righteous love (samma pema) as part of a Noble Fourteenth Path also composed of righteous understanding, righteous thought, righteous speech, righteous conduct, righteous livelihood, righteous effort, righteous attention, righteous concentration, righteous knowledge, righteous liberation, righteous peace, righteous justice and righteous Spirituality. In conclusion, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee has the Purpose (Dharma) for the Buddhist Spirituality to be pure and true, not being perverted by abusive criminals, so that anyone who attempts against the sacredness of Wise and Compassionate Love will be denounced and prosecuted. Thus, for having violated several of the fundamental rules of Buddhist Law, such as not sexually abusing and not swindling, it is established that Sogyal Rinpoche is a False Buddhist Master. Undoubtedly, although he has resigned after having been publicly exposed by a group of students, this does not necessarily imply that the accused is now doing good and that he is spiritually purifying himself, because in order to achieve that it is not only required that the damage caused to all his victims is repaired by the accused but also he needs to learn Buddhism under the guidance of genuine spiritual masters. In this way, the Case on the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” constitutes a great lesson, so that anyone who makes sexual abuses and scams is aware that he or she will not be able to do so with impunity. Following the Path of Master Gautama Buddha, who created and developed a Path of True Love 2600 years ago, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee oversees that Buddhist masters and spiritual communes around the world do not violate Buddhist Law, so that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” has been sentenced Responsible for Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law.

 

Evidence 7: NOTICE to His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “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.”

 

Evidence 8: Judgment on RIGPA Cult & Sogyal Rinpoche

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “Dear Prosecutor, Public Defender, Ambassador, Secretary and Jury Members of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR), regarding Case 41-2018 against “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche”, on April 1, 2018, it is hereby recorded that the trial of the Ethics Committee has been concluded to analyze the violation of the Buddhist Ethics carried out by the accused. After analyzing the presentation of the Case and the validation of proofs, the Committee has proceeded with the voting of 9 members of the Jury, confirming that there were 1 vote of “Insanity”, 1 vote of “Innocent” and 7 votes of “Responsible” for “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” for the serious crimes of Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law. When interpreting and giving voice to the vote of the Jury members, it is concluded that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” do not have any valid excuse to justify their Violations to Buddhist Ethics, because although they have recently publicly apologized, the acts of Sogyal Rinpoche are not the product of a mistake but constitute a deliberately pattern of criminal behavior chosen for more than 40 years, even being a behavior supported by the RIGPA Sect for more than 20 years since the first legal demand for sexual abuse came to public light. In this sense, the accused party, “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche”, has made a systematic plan of physical and psychological abuses through manipulations and frauds that swindled thousands of people to maintain a selfish lifestyle of sexual and labor exploitation. Sogyal Rinpoche systematically carried out coercion and sexual abuse, even creating a harem of young female sex slaves to obtain personal gratification to his promiscuity, causing enormous pain and confusion in his victims, who also received psychological mistreatment and physical violence on a daily basis. Sogyal Rinpoche has fraudulently promised to cure his students, by manipulating and sexually exploiting them, using his position of power in order to betray the ethical duty to help and release his students, so that his total lack of Compassionate Love perverts all values and ethical principles, causing many of his victims to doubt or disbelieve the sacredness and veracity of Buddhism. In this way, it is confirmed the fact that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” have illegally taken advantage and have subjected a large number of people seeking to learn Spirituality, using violence, brainwashing, forced labor, threats and multimillion dollar swindle as a part of their organized crime behavior. Evidences from the Case has shown that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” formed a criminal organization or illicit association, violating women’s rights and also violating the fundamental ethical principles and precepts of Buddhist Law, by reducing women to mere objects of sensual pleasure. Sogyal Rinpoche has had a totally contradictory behavior with regards to the Buddhist doctrine, establishing a personality cult that carried out million dollar swindles and covered up systematic sexual abuses in the name of Buddhism, claiming a Crazy Wisdom or non-conventional teaching to justify terrible violations to Buddhist Ethics, such as mental manipulation, physical violence, sexual abuse and hedonistic materialistic lifestyle. As the whole RIGPA organization was intended to satisfy the criminal behavior of Sogyal Rinpoche, along with his materialistic and lustful lifestyle, by systematically covering-up his fraudulent millionaire abuses and expenses, it is confirmed that RIGPA is not a Buddhist Community (Sangha) but a Criminal Sect having total ignorance of what Spiritual Love (Metta) means. Actually, True Wisdom should always be Compassionate and Sane, so that any master who speaks of violent or “crazy wisdom” will be committing spiritual fraud. Wisdom transmitted through a “non-conventional way” is undoubtedly the pacifism, social justice, advanced knowledge and ecology, because in a materialistic and destructive world, where it is normal for there to be war, poverty, ignorance and contamination, then Buddhism should adopt the “non-conventional way” of active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics, which is essentially love the fellow beings, never resorting to the ills of greed, violence and deceit. The awakened mind, the sane mind, is intrinsically “non-conventional”, always humble and serene, so that those people considering promiscuity and violence as non-conventional ways are actually maintaining the same conventional, pathological and perverse way of the rest of society. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee establishes the possibility of reaching a Post-Judgment Conciliatory Agreement with RIGPA in case they wish the annulment of the charges against them. In order to do good, to stop doing evil, and to purify oneself spiritually, following the Way of all the Buddhas, it is ruled that RIGPA should meet the following requirements: 1) Donate all its millionaire material possessions to Sogyal Rinpoche‘s victims; 2) Declaring Sogyal Rinpoche as a Non-Enlightened False Buddhist Master. Until this possible conciliation agreement does not happen, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” are Responsible for Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law. On the other hand, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee confirms that it is not possible to establish the legitimacy of an enlightened Buddhist master from the analysis of his celibacy. This is because there are some Buddhist lineages and schools that do not require their masters to be celibate, thus following Siddharta Gautama’s Middle Path that transcends both asceticism and hedonism. In this way, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee, as an organization that respects and incorporates the ancient knowledge of all spiritual traditions, affirms that Buddhist masters may certainly practice sexuality as long as they comply with the fundamental ethical precepts, practicing a righteous and appropriate love (samma pema) which does not hurt the fellow beings. This means that there should never be any kind of manipulation, deception, violence and debauchery, but that there must be Pure and True Love in a climate of reciprocal union. In this sense, following the international jurisprudence on cases of therapeutic relationships, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares as illegal the practice of genitality between master and student for being a practice very susceptible to be used for manipulation and abuse. However, there are two exceptions to this rule: 1) When the person who decides to establish a sexual relationship is not a current disciple of the spiritual master it will not constitute any kind of manipulation or abuse, since relations with friends or with former disciples lack any possible master-slave dialectic; 2) When the Buddhist master who established a spiritual marriage with his dharmic partner decides to practice a relationship of mutual support, mutual learning and growing-in-love it will not constitute any kind of manipulation or abuse.  Accordingly, in 2011 the Maitriyana established that Spiritual Love is that which teaches to tolerate Emptiness, not feeling fear or bitterness because what is shared is something Pure and Real; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to contemplate flowers, mutually learning from each other and growing-in-love; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to Awaken, calming the mind and lighting the spiritual Fire in the core of the Being; Spiritual Love is that which teaches to realize the Project of Freedom; Spiritual Love is that which saves forever in all the ways a person can be saved. The Buddhist Law teaches that, in order to cultivate a better world, an altruistic and harmonious civilization, it is necessary to cultivate and radiate the practice of Spiritual Love (Metta) to all beings. Only on this wise and compassionate foundation is that society can experience a life of happiness, goodness, peace, honesty, kindness, mutual support, humility, intelligence and detachment. This means that spiritual masters not only teach the individual to attain the Awakening (Bodhi), but also teach the community to live without anger, hostility and animosity, becoming a free and enlightened society. Following the path of masters Gautama and Jesus, the Maitriyana shows that the key to the Salvation and Evolution of humanity is Unlimited Spiritual Love (Agape) toward everyone, cultivating a reconciling spirit to all beings in the same way that the mothers and fathers care for their own children.[2] Therefore, the apprentice is required to practice Mindfulness in the here and now, valuing each moment of life as if it were the last one, and valuing the fellow being as if he or she were oneself, including the enemies, since the one who lives an Existence with virtues and clear vision understands that the path of greed, hatred and deceit leads to Self-destruction of humanity. In this sense, the Buddhist Law proclaims that True Spiritual Love (Metta) must have a spirit of self-sacrifice, so that one must renounce to protect one’s Ego, Ideology and State, in order to begin to defend Life, Spirituality and Mother Earth. This means that the Reconciling Love (Maitri) and the Supreme Compassion (Mahakaruna) promoted by the Free and Enlightened Beings (Arhats-Bodhisattvas) are expanded to all the humankind, to the whole nature and to the entire Multiverse. Thus, the Maitriyana shows that active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics are based on the understanding that the whole reality is interrelated and interdependent. The Buddhist Law has the Purpose (Dharma) or guiding principle of creating a wise and compassionate civilization, a friendly and altruistic world. This implies that the individual should go beyond the limits of romantic love in order to enter the unlimited field of Sublime and Spiritual Love (Metta) that constantly purifies and enlightens emotions, thoughts and actions. In effect, the apprentice who abandons the attachment to ordinary love is able to resacralize everyday life, living a free existence in the world. The Maitriyana confirms that romantic love is nothing but a primitive kind of affection that should be transcended if an individual decides to become a spiritual master and live without jealousy, resentment and illusions. The Free and Enlightened Beings (Arhats-Bodhisattvas) even transcend maternal love, because their commitment is not with the defense of a son or relative in particular, but rather with the protection of all sentient beings. In this way, Spiritual Love (Metta) is the highest Purpose (Dharma) by which a person can live, and therefore this is broadly related to the Love for Truth and Art, since Dharmic Passion always helps others to be cured from suffering and to live a real happiness. Therefore, there is a deep commitment to Goodness and Beauty, providing intelligence and empathy in relationships with others. According to Buddhist Law, the spiritual master must always be a good friend (kalyanamitta) who respects and helps people to achieve Awakening (Bodhi), instead of being a bad friend (papamitta) who dishonestly uses and manipulates others through greed, hatred and deceit. The Maitriyana then confirms that the force that awakens the mind and transforms the internal world is the same force of love that saves society and pacifies the external world. This pure and unconditional Spiritual Love (mahametta) not only does not produce suffering, but is an essential part of the path of Liberation, turning the apprentice into a Companion of the Way. While erotic love is based on attachment and is imperfect, impermanent and insubstantial, however, Spiritual Love is developed as the healthiest and most powerful force in the Universe, maintaining humility, transformation and openness at all times. In fact, the Reconciling Love (Maitri) constitutes the fourth pillar on which every individual should take refuge, along with the pillars of the Awakened Being (Buddha), the Purpose (Dharma) and the Spiritual Commune (Sangha). Therefore, the Buddhist Law recommends couples wishing to live happily that they should not be based on sex and material consumerism, but should share a common framework of conducts, beliefs and values. Precisely, the one who practices the Art of Contemplative Love never converts the loved one into an object that satisfies his or her needs, but actually honors him or her in every moment and place respecting his/her presence as a miracle, seeking he or she can be free of all attachment, waking up to the Truth of life, learning and growing-in-love. While erotic love is rebelled against what is Real and tries to keep people with attachment and egoistic desire, on the other hand, Spiritual Love (Metta) is an associate of Truth and tries to liberate others in a totally pure and unconditional way by means of a Sublimated Desire. In this sense, the Maitriyana totally criticizes those false spiritual masters, such as Ricardo Javier Ocampo, Adi Da and Sogyal Rinpoche, who have totally broken the ethical precepts of the practice of Spiritual Love (Metta) by means of harmful behavior to others, because they have carried out abusive and coercive behaviors instead of honoring the mission of Spirituality: to heal and liberate humanity. Thus, in order that there are no manipulations or distortions, the Buddhist Law describes what Pure Love (Metta) really is: reconciliatory, enjoyable, equanimous, wise and compassionate, non-violent, unconditional and universal. It is a Spiritual Love (Metta) free of attachment and selfishness, which turns the loved one into a Companion-of-Way on the path of Awakening of the internal world and Liberation of the external world. This is why the Maitriyana’s model of Super-Integral Buddhism (Mahapurna) evolves the Noble Eightfold Path of Gautama, incorporating the appropriate and righteous love (samma pema) as part of a Noble Fourteenth Path also composed of righteous understanding, righteous thought, righteous speech, righteous conduct, righteous livelihood, righteous effort, righteous attention, righteous concentration, righteous knowledge, righteous liberation, righteous peace, righteous justice and righteous Spirituality. In conclusion, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee has the Purpose (Dharma) for the Buddhist Spirituality to be pure and true, not being perverted by abusive criminals, so that anyone who attempts against the sacredness of Wise and Compassionate Love will be denounced and prosecuted. Thus, for having violated several of the fundamental rules of Buddhist Law, such as not sexually abusing and not swindling, it is established that Sogyal Rinpoche is a False Buddhist Master. Undoubtedly, although he has resigned after having been publicly exposed by a group of students, this does not necessarily imply that the accused is now doing good and that he is spiritually purifying himself, because in order to achieve that it is not only required that the damage caused to all his victims is repaired by the accused but also he needs to learn Buddhism under the guidance of genuine spiritual masters. In this way, the Case on the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” constitutes a great lesson, so that anyone who makes sexual abuses and scams is aware that he or she will not be able to do so with impunity. Following the Path of Master Gautama Buddha, who created and developed a Path of True Love 2600 years ago, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee oversees that Buddhist masters and spiritual communes around the world do not violate Buddhist Law, so that the “RIGPA Sect & Sogyal Rinpoche” has been sentenced Responsible for Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law.

 

Evidence 9: Notification to Matthieu Ricard and Karuna-Shechen

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “On April 2, 2018, an international Notification to Matthieu Ricard & Karuna-Shechen is issued due to the criminal actions of RIGPA & Sogyal Rinpoche, who have been sentenced Responsible for Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of Women’s Rights and Violation of Buddhist Law. This Ethical Judgment is the karmic consequence of the systematic criminal behavior of sexual abuses and forced labor carried out by Sogyal Rinpoche and his illegal RIGPA sect, which constitute Crimes against Humanity according to the International Human Rights Law. Although His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso was aware of the crimes of Sogyal Rinpoche and the RIGPA sect for more than 30 years, not only did he not denounce such criminal behaviors and maintained a code of silence, but even supported and participated in activities carried out by this organization and its criminal leader, as when in 2008 he inaugurated the Lerab Ling temple in France. In fact, Sogyal Rinpoche and the RIGPA Sect have repeatedly used the figure of the Dalai Lama to validate themselves in the face of the accusations of sexual abuse, continuing to abuse and swindle many people thanks to the ethical and spiritual legitimacy that they claimed to receive, which involved nothing more and nothing less than saying to be under the guidance and patronage of the Dalai Lama. Obviously, in addition to the economic contributions that RIGPA made to Tibetan projects, the code of complicit silence between Sogyal Rinpoche and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is due to an incorrect attempt to protect the Dharma. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee has noticed that this pattern of behavior of the Dalai Lama, which has also been evident in his silence facing the violations of Buddhist Ethics committed by Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, Lama Lobzang and the Karma Kagyu Lineage, resembles the behavior of the Catholic Church in the face of thousands of cases of sexual abuses of children, considering that it is better to cover up the complaints, trying to preserve a good and pure image of the spiritual tradition in the face of public opinion. Thus, the Dalai Lama would be ignoring the fact that when there is corruption within a government or community the best thing that can be done is to purify such organization through ethical and legal means, even requiring the expulsion of those members who commit violations, otherwise an individual act tarnishes the entire community. However, instead of resorting to the ethical and legal procedures of Buddhist Law, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso has recommended the victims of abuse that all what they should do is make the abuses public through the newspapers and the radio. This represents a great ethical failure that prevents all kinds of restorative ethical justice. The Great Master Siddhartha Gautama established ethical and legal procedures that should be followed by all Buddhist apprentices and masters, such as the expulsion of members who commit sexual abuse or homicidal acts, so that every Spiritual Commune (Sangha) ignoring accusations of serious criminal acts will be totally betraying and violating the Buddhist Law, as is the case of the IBC (International Buddhist Confederation), which not only has the genocidal criminal Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa as its Spiritual Patron, but also had the very criminal Sogyal Rinpoche as a member of its Supreme Dhamma Council. On the other hand, in relation to the words expressed by Matthieu Ricard in July 2017, it is confirmed that he overstepped his functions and knowledge by stating that some victims of Sogyal Rinpoche were guilty of misrepresentation for having suggested that the Dalai Lama has not reacted publically to the testimonies concerning Sogyal Rinpoche‘s abuse for financial reasons or out of a misguided attempt to protect Buddhism. In fact, if Matthieu Ricard would be right and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso were strongly allergic to any kind of duplicity and pretense, then after hearing about the abuses he should have declared Sogyal Rinpoche as a non-enlightened false Buddhist master, and he never had to have supported him spiritually or having shared any activity with this criminal who fouled the legitimacy of the entire Tibetan Buddhism. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee makes a total repudiation of Matthieu Ricard‘s words when he defended the complicit silence in the face of Sogyal Rinpoche‘s crimes against humanity, by saying that it is not Dalai Lama’s role to act as an international Buddhist policeman. This very poor excuse has a structural hypocrisy bias, since the Dalai Lama has made public criticisms against China, the U.N. and even the Sea Shepherd organization, without it being considered to act as a Buddhist Policeman. The fact of criticizing some people while keeping complicit silence and protecting some others shows great duplicity and double standards of morality on the part of the Dalai Lama. According to the International Buddhist Ethics Committee, whose role is indeed to act as an International Buddhist Justice, this kind of bad excuses show that Matthieu Ricard, even though he is a great activist for the rights of animals, does not constitute an adequate ethical point of reference, for lacking the compassionate wisdom (karuna-prajña) that is necessary to have empathy with the victims and to be an enlightened and humanitarian Buddhist master. At the same time, since in 2015 Matthieu Ricard & Karuna-Shechen received a donation of 5426 Euros coming from the RIGPA Criminal Sect, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee gives the order that this money is returned as soon as possible for having spurious and illegal origins, such as fraud, forced labor, psychological manipulation and sexual abuses carried out by Sogyal Rinpoche. In case of breaching this legal requirement, Matthieu Ricard & Karuna-Shechen could be incurring acts of corruption. The Buddhist Law requires that apprentices, Buddhist masters and spiritual communes practice active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics, performing acts of Purification and Enlightenment. Therefore, it is confirmed not only the repudiation against those communities and masters -such as RIGPA and Sogyal Rinpoche– who have practiced False and Criminal Buddhism, but are also repudiated all those who keep complicit silence in the face of crimes that attempt against purity and integrity of Spirituality, as is the case of sexual abuse, violence and fraud. Ergo, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee again rules that every spiritual commune (sangha) carrying out acts of direct support or acts of silence in the face of international crimes will be absolutely violating the Buddhist Law, even in the case of millionaire and famous organizations with politic contacts. Finally, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee recalls that in 2005 His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso publicly stated that if science proves some belief of Buddhism wrong, then Buddhism will have to change. Therefore, since the legal sciences show that Tibetan Buddhism led by the Dalai Lama has been wrong in maintaining complicit silence in the face of the physical and psychological abuses of Sogyal Rinpoche, then it is inevitably proven that Tibetan Buddhism has to change and the Dalai Lama should apologize publicly for his mistakes.”

 

Evidence 10: Legal Act on Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “On April 3, 2018, an International Repudiation Act is issued regarding Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, who in August 2017 publicly stated that if the students were previously warned that it was a Vajrayana initiation then there would be nothing wrong with the crimes against humanity perpetrated by Sogyal Rinpoche. While it is recognized the fact that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche states that Vajrayana Buddhism does not allow masters to sexually, emotionally and financially abuse their apprentices, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee makes this repudiation because, precisely, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche has stated that after receiving an initiation it is a big mistake to analyze or criticize the guru.  At the same time, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche has also stated that the fundamental vision of Vajrayana cannot be modified just because it does not fit the minds of some liberal, puritanical, abrahamic and individualist activists. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee considers that this vision not only totally lacks active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics, but also contradicts Dalai Lama‘s position that if science proves that any belief of Buddhism is wrong, then Buddhism will have to change. Therefore, the legal science of human rights, together with the millenarian system of Buddhist Law, confirms that every illegal vision of Vajrayana must be changed. Thus, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche‘s vision is completely rejected for stating that the criminal aspects of Vajrayana cannot be changed just to adapt it to the XXI century.  The International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche as a false Buddhist master, since he has stated that the crimes against humanity for which Sogyal Rinpoche is criticized and accused are based only on the projection of his critical students, even affirming that he cannot see anything wrong with what Sogyal Rinpoche did if the students were aware of the theory and practice of the Vajrayana to which they voluntarily entered. Unlike the complicit silence of the Dalai Lama, in this case, the public demonstrations of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche constitute an act of active complicity with crimes against humanity, since they justify and support such ruthless acts such as Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, and Violation of Women’s Rights. In fact, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche has recognized that the Vajrayana possibly is a way contrary to the accepted laws and perhaps even criminal, which implies going beyond all kinds of values such as morality, the rule of law, accountability and transparency. But what this false Buddhist master is not recognizing is that Sogyal Rinpoche‘s actions not only violate the laws of the XXI century but are also a profound Violation of Buddhist Law.  On the other hand, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche lacks empathy, solidarity and spiritual love (Metta), questioning the victims of Sogyal Rinpoche for not examining their master before enrolling, even declaring that he cannot understand the reason why the victims waited so many years before saying something. This enormous lack of respect for the victims of Sogyal Rinpoche ignores the profound fact that RIGPA Sect systematically coerced and manipulated the students, washing their brains and making them believe that the Buddhist Spirituality allowed and endorsed the criminal and insane wisdom of Sogyal Rinpoche, covering up the fact that his actions were not the product of an enlightened master but were simply the actions of a sexual abuser and torturer.  In fact, even Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche himself seems to agree with RIGPA‘s cover-up pattern, stating that he does not believe that legal punishment is the answer to solving the problem.  Obviously, if Vajrayana Buddhism is Ole Nydahl‘s Islamophobia, if it is Lama Lobzang‘s Violation of the Buddhist Law, if it is Sogyal Rinpoche‘s Crimes against humanity, and if it is the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso‘s Complicit Silence, then undoubtedly the current situation represents the starting point of the way toward the decline and death of Vajrayana Buddhism. The maximum proof of this terrible fact is the words of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche for whom Islamophobia, the Violation of Buddhist Law, Crimes against humanity, and complicit silence, do not constitute the degeneration of Buddhist Spirituality, because for this false master the great deterioration or threat faced by Buddhism would be the Western promotion of Mindfulness and a version of the Buddhadharma without reincarnation, which has the potential to destroy Buddhism and to be the devil incarnated. This kind of essentially illusory and misleading ideas ignores that the only thing that can destroy Tibetan Buddhism is the Islamophobia of Ole Nydahl, the indifference towards genocide of Lama Lobzang, and the Crimes against humanity of Sogyal Rinpoche. Even the Dalai Lama‘s terrible complicit silence in the face of these facts totally delegitimizes Tibetan Buddhism in front of the rest of society, destroying its legitimacy of ethical leadership in the world. Only the lack of compassionate wisdom (karuna-prajña) facing the suffering of others can destroy the Buddhist Spirituality. Precisely, the lack of empathy and solidarity is what has led Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche to affirm that Sogyal Rinpoche has contributed to the world and to Buddhism with many more benefits than harm.”

 

Evidence 11: Legal Requirement to the de facto Leader of Tibetan Buddhism

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “Following the lack of response from the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee establishes once again a fundamental communication in order that the de facto leader of Tibetan Buddhism solves the ills affecting the spiritual tradition that he represents, considering the fact that continuing to evade the resolution of conflicts and violations of the Buddhist Ethics is nothing more than an act of immorality. In the first place, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, Spiritual Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), is again required to demand the expulsion of Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa (Patron of the IBC and Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), because this individual has been found Responsible for Crimes against humanity and peace, Complicity with Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing, among other charges. Secondly, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, Spiritual Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), is required to demand the expulsion of Lama Lobzang, Secretary of the IBC, for having been found Responsible for the violation of Buddhist Law, since he has contributed to Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa‘s impunity. Third, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, Spiritual Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), is required to demand the expulsion of Sogyal Rinpoche, a member of the Supreme Dhamma Council of the IBC, who has been found Responsible for having committed Torture and Slavery, because he has committed Inhumane Treatment against women, all of which constitute Crimes against humanity. Fourth, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, Spiritual Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), is required to demand the expulsion of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, a member of the Supreme Dhamma Council of the IBC, who has been challenged as a false Buddhist master. In addition, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is currently being investigated for possible acts of complicity with crimes against humanity, so that if Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and his disciples continue to commit violations of Buddhist Ethics and if the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso decides not to intervene, then this will be considered an act of complicity on the part of the de facto leader of Tibetan Buddhism. Fifth, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to demand Matthieu Ricard & Karuna-Shechen to refund 5426 euros which they received in 2015 from the Criminal Sect RIGPA, since the origin of this money comes from illegal sources, such as fraud, forced labor, psychological manipulation and sexual abuse. Sixth, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to demand both Thaye Dorje 17th Gyalwa Karmapa and Ogyen Trinley Dorje 17th Gyalwang Karmapa to expel Ole Nydahl from the Karma Kagyu lineage, since this individual has been found Responsible for Discrimination, Violation of Buddhist ethical precepts, Political Persecution and Attack on the Human Right to Freedom of Expression. Seventh, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to return his “U.S. Congressional Gold Medal “, which was delivered by President Bush of the United States of America, who has been judged Responsible for War Crimes during a trial conducted by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal. In addition, during the UN Case, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has been able to verify that the USA participated in acts of genocide, crimes against humanity, and crimes against peace in Iraq. Eighth, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to hand over all information he has about international violations and crimes committed against the Tibetan People, because such crimes cannot go unpunished before International Justice and the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights.  Finally, in ninth place, the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso is required to cease the meetings with movie stars and music celebrities in order to spend that valuable time in trying to solve the enormous problems that are destroying the ethical and spiritual legitimacy of Tibetan Buddhism.”

 

Evidence 12: Official Statement to the FBI

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “The International Buddhist Ethics Committee, on April 26, 2018, decides to communicate officially with the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) following the arrest of Keith Raniere and Allison Mack, who lead “Nxivm”, a self-help cult linked to celebrities that is an international group accused of turning women into sexual slaves, carrying out crimes such as sex trafficking and forced labor, which are prohibited by the International Human Rights Law. In this sense, William Sweeney, director of the investigation for the FBI, said that Keith Raniere has made a disgusting abuse of power through the denigration and manipulation of women considered sex slaves, which would constitute horrifying and disconcerting crimes against humanity. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee confirms that the crimes committed by Keith Raniere of the “Nxivm” cult are practically identical to the crimes committed during around 40 years by Sogyal Rinpoche of the “Rigpa” cult, who have been sentenced as Responsible for the serious crimes of Torture and Slavery, Fraud and Organized Crime, Violation of women’s rights, Violation of Buddhist Law and Crimes against humanity. Therefore, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee requires the FBI to investigate with the same weight of law to both the “Nxivm” and “Rigpa” cults, which seem having been dedicated to swindle thousands of people to maintain a system of sex trafficking and forced labor in order to satisfy the lusts of Keith Raniere and Sogyal Rinpoche respectively. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee recalls that the “Rigpa” cult is based in the USA, so it is within the jurisdiction of the FBI. The fact that this cult has strong political ties does not merit that it can commit crimes against humanity with total impunity. On the other hand, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee shares with the FBI the ethical conclusion reached during the “World Peace Prize Awarding Council Case”: Wan Ko Yee, who calls himself “HH Dorje Chang Buddha III”, would have bribed US congressmen and senators in order to receive awards and recognitions endorsed by the USA government. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee requests the FBI to investigate this fact of corruption in order to bring those responsible to justice.”

 

Evidence 13: Legal Notice to the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “On May 2, 2018, this Legal Notice is made due to the fact that Nobel Peace Prize winners have publicly accused Myanmar of committing genocide against the Rohingya People, since Aung San Suu Kyi, de facto president of Myanmar, has led an ethnic cleansing and forced expulsion of 700 thousand people by means of sexual abuse and systematic and widespread murder of girls, women and unarmed men, very often by decapitating or burning them alive. In 2018 Tawakkol Karman, Mairead Maguire and Shirin Ebadi have requested that those responsible for these international crimes of genocide against innocents be brought before the International Criminal Court. On the other hand, in 2017 and 2018, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Yanghee Lee, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, stated that the crimes committed by Myanmar against the Rohingya People would constitute acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide, calling on the international community to conduct investigations and trials before international courts. Precisely, not allowing impunity to exist is what the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has been doing in 2015 and 2016, when sentencing to the de facto leaders of Myanmar, Thein Sein, Aung San Suu Kyi and Min Aung Hlaing, for the crimes of genocide, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, high crimes against peace, violation of international human rights law and violation of Buddhist law; and also sentencing the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee and its de facto leader Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa for the crimes against humanity and peace, complicity with genocide and ethnic cleansing, violation of the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples, violation of the freedom of expression, violation of the rights of women and children, complicity with discrimination, oppression and illegal detention against the Buddhist Sangha, and violation of the Buddhist Legal Code. For having blatantly ignored this terrible situation, the IBC Secretary General, Lama Lobzang, was sentenced as Responsible for Violation of Buddhist Law. Consequently, it is confirmed the fact that when keeping the genocidal criminal Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa as its Spiritual Patron, the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) is not only validating Violations of Buddhist Law, but it is also being an accomplice to crimes against humanity, since it provides shelter or covers up an international criminal to revalidate him ethically and spiritually, which provides impunity for crimes committed in the past and also allows to continue carrying out crimes in the future. In case of not resolving this scandalous situation, by not expelling Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa in the next 5 days, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights will initiate legal actions against the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). Finally, as the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso has been previously informed, the expulsion of Sogyal Rinpoche, who is a member of the Supreme Dhamma Council of the IBC, is ordered within the next 5 days, since he has been found Responsible for having committed Torture and Slavery, Inhumane treatment against women, all of which constitutes a Violation of Buddhist Law and Crimes against humanity. It is expected that the IBC will comply with the Buddhist Law, ceasing to do evil, beginning to do good and spiritually purifying itself.”

 

Evidence 14: Judgment on Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

INTERNATIONAL BUDDHIST ETHICS COMMITTEE: “Dear Prosecutor, Public Defender, Ambassador, Secretary and Jury Members of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee (IBEC) and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights (BTHR), regarding Case 43-2018 against “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche”, on May 09, 2018, it is hereby recorded that the trial of the Committee has been concluded to analyze the violation of Buddhist Ethics by the accused. After analyzing the presentation of the Case and the validation of the evidence, the Committee has proceeded with the voting of 6 members of the Jury, confirming that there were1 vote for “Insanity”, 1 vote for “Innocent” and 4 votes for “Responsible” to “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” for the serious crimes of Complicity with Crimes Against Humanity and Violation of Buddhist Law. In interpreting and giving voice to the voting of the Jury members, it is concluded that “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” has no valid reason to justify his Violations of Buddhist Ethics, which are an affront to the victims of sexual abuse and crimes against humanity by Sogyal Rinpoche. In this regard, the accused “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” has publicly stated that there would be nothing wrong with the terrible international crimes of Sogyal Rinpoche if they would have occurred in the context of initiations of Vajrayana Buddhism, even stating that the guru should not be criticized or analyzed. Thus, “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” positions the Vajrayana Buddhism beyond the fulfillment of Law, ignoring that the International Law has established that the tribal and indigenous juridical systems -within which the Buddhist Commune (Sangha) is found- can function autonomously and independently from State Law as long as they comply with the essential requirement of not violating the human rights, as established in the ILO Convention No. 169 on Indigenous Peoples. This means that the illegal practice of Sogyal Rinpoche and “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” that oppresses the rights of women is totally immoral and must be changed, not because it is not according to a liberal, puritanical, abrahmic or individualistic mind, but because it violates the International Human Rights Law. Precisely, the Buddhist Law has liberty and self-determination to exist and develop itself as long as it does not violate fundamental principles, as established by the excellent jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of Colombia in its Judgment T 349/96, where it is established that the right to cultural survival and the principle of ethnic and cultural diversity have legal limits, since indigenous communities have legal autonomy but simultaneously cannot practice actions that violate the right to life or the prohibition of slavery and torture. The International Buddhist Ethics Committee, as a Community practising the Buddhist Law as well as the Human Rights, has ruled that the actions of Sogyal Rinpoche supported by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche constitute acts of torture and sexual slavery, so that they violate both the Buddhist Ethics and the International Law. In this way, when Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche states that these criminal aspects of Vajrayana cannot be changed just to adapt to the 21st century, he not only demonstrates ignorance and lack of solidarity and remorse when he attacks the victims, but it also constitutes an apology of crime, being specifically an apology of crimes against humanity. Even if it is recognized that the students of Sogyal Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche have voluntarily entered the Vajrayana practices, this does not provide legitimacy or legality to systematically suffering crimes against humanity, such as torture, sexual abuse and forced labor. Unlike the apology of crimes against humanity that has been expressed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee confirms that the Buddhist Law is not a criminal pathway contrary to accepted laws and beyond morality, the Rule of Law, accountability and transparency, because actually the Buddhist Law is the maximum liberator and defender of the sacredness of life in the history of humanity. Indeed, since the Buddhist Commune (Sangha) has been an example of empathy, mutual support and spiritual love (metta) in the world, then it is stated that the acts of psychological manipulation and cultural distortion carried out by Sogyal Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche constitute a Supreme Offense against International Morality and the Sanctity of the Precepts, trying to destroy and delegitimize the best ethical and spiritual legacy of humanity. However, this lack of altruism towards the victims of Sogyal Rinpoche is not a new act in Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, who has kept 30 years of silence and inaction to the ethnic cleansing carried out in Bhutan, country which, according to evidence, forcibly expelled more than 100,000 citizens of a minority ethnic group, something which would constitute crimes against humanity in the eyes of International Law.  On the other hand, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee establishes the possibility of reaching a Post-Sentence Conciliation Agreement with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche in case the accused wishes the annulment of the charges against him. In order to do good, to stop doing evil, and to purify oneself spiritually, following the Path of all the Buddhas, it is ruled that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche should meet the following requirements: 1) Publicly apologize and subsidize therapeutic and spiritual assistance to the victims of Sogyal Rinpoche; 2) Declare that he will abandon and will condemn the illegal practices that usually occur in the name of Vajrayana and that undermine the rights of women; 3) Commit to fulfill the Buddhist Law at all times and places, and never again validating or legitimizing crimes; 4) Actively denounce crimes against humanity that occur in his native country Bhutan. Until this possible Conciliation Agreement does not happen, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declares that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is Responsible for Complicity with Crimes against Humanity and Violation of Buddhist Law. Two thousand six hundred years ago the Spiritual Commune (Sangha) was born as a People where men and women enjoyed full equality. This is what the Buddhist Law defends as a Spirituality of Liberation, where there are no discriminations based on race, gender or social class. Thus, the Maitriyana denounces the False Buddhism of all those institutions showing patriarchal and sexist traits, because they would have betrayed the founding spirit created by Master Gautama. The Buddhist Law revalues women and never reduces them to a mere sexual object, leading humanity toward Liberation and Self-determination and never toward oppression and slavery. In short, the Maitriyana concludes that the existence of a Spiritual Commune (Sangha) with sexist and hedonistic characteristics represents the total decline of Buddhism. Therefore, the Buddhist Law must be feminist anywhere and anytime, carrying out a Dharmic Feminism that defends the rights of women but without incurring immoral and criminal misalignments that violate human rights, as is the case of neoliberal defense of the decriminalization of abortion that violates the human right to life of the child. In conclusion, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee has the Purpose (Dharma) for the Buddhist Spirituality to be always on the side of the victims and never endorse abusive criminals, so that anyone attempting against active contemplation, compassionate wisdom and humanitarian ethics will be condemned. Thus, for having violated several of the fundamental laws of Buddhist Law, such as providing ethical and spiritual support to practices of sexual exploitation and torture, it is established that the accused must be expelled from Buddhism, unless he publicly repents and decides to practice and learn a Genuine spiritual Path. In this way, the Case of “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” is a great lesson for anyone who carries out complicity with sexual abuse to know that it will not be done with impunity. Following the Path of Master Gautama Buddha, who created and developed a Path of protection and defense of women two thousand six hundred years ago, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee supervises that the Buddhist masters and spiritual communes from all over the world do not violate the Buddhist Law, so that “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche” has been sentenced as Responsible for Complicity with Crimes Against Humanity and Violation of Buddhist Law.
