Deconstructing the Current Controversy over Karma Kagyu Sectarianism in Tibet

Tinfoil Ushnisha

20140916-201537.jpgIn 1997 India’s Chief Secretary in Sikkim, K Sreedhar Rao, in a report to the Indian cabinet noted his concerns about Situ Rinpoche’s activities in China, including his recognition of the very same Rinpoches responsible for jamming up Ogyen Trinley Dorje over the forced conversion of Drukpa monasteries in Tibet.

It’s not like as Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Regent Situ Rinpoche ever made any secret of his efforts to, with the support of the Chinese government, re-establish the Karma Kagyu as a sect in Tibet. With this support he rebuilt Palpung Monastery in Sichuan province. And as this business with the Drukpa monasteries demonstrates there is no question who has the support of the Chinese government, the Karma Kagyu sect as stood up by Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s Regent, Situ Rinpoche.

Karmapa Chenno!
