I spent nearly thirty years under the thrall of the Tibetan lamas, with many thousands of other, well-educated professionals, over the last forty years, who were hooked by Chogyam Trungpa and other Tibetan lamas and their ‘mindfulness meditation.’ This led into their other ‘contemplative’ practices, rituals, endless chanting and visualizations, that eroded and changed our western values, ethics and reasoning abilities. These practices were not, as the lamas pretend, to ‘quicken a spiritual path’ that would lead to greater wisdom and compassion. Quite the contrary. It led to narrow and fanatic guru-worship of these lamas in order to create their ‘change agents’ to fulfill the Tibetan lamas Adi-Buddha World plans; plans not based on compassion for others and peace for the world, but the usual greed, exploitation and power they exerted over their own people (and still do in exile) in Tibet.
It didn’t matter that I had three postgraduate degrees in psychology and family systems. That only made those of us, in these Lamaist groups, more vulnerable to the lamas’ esoteric teachings, since our profession was purposely targeted by the lamas to become their change agents to infiltrate into academic and other soft sciences to influence our western cultural institutions and who believed we were too clever to be fooled.
Our psychology profession, in particular, was purposely targeted by the Tibetan lamas, through Trungpa’s Naropa Institute and his ‘contemplative psychology’ program started in 1975; the first of its kind that has now spread to other universities, thanks to the graduates of Naropa. These graduates obediently infiltrated into academic departments at other more prestigious and influential colleges, starting other ‘contemplative psychology’ and ‘contemplative social work’ programs. As Trungpa and the other lamas ‘commanded’ them to do.
Once out from the Tibetan lamas’ pervasive influence, that took over all aspects of my former life, It took all my courage and strength to write this book.
There were others, who came before me, who have spoken out, willing to go against the tsunami of false narratives about who these lamas are and what is their true purpose in our Western countries. But, their voices continue to be drowned out with the Shangri-la false narrative, supported by mass media, global corporatism, the entertainment industry and Hollywood, who have also come under the lamas’ spell.
Our western democratic governments also remain complicit, until they release the true history of Tibet and its people and the factual conditions about life under the lamas’ thrall, for over a millennium. This Shangri-la narrative needs to be exposed for the egregious lies that the lamas have been allowed to perpetuate, by simply releasing the official documents about Tibet under Lamaism and begin to tell the world the truth: that it was a despotic, misogynistic tyranny over its own people that kept them in a state of semi-starvation, poverty and forced indentured serfdom and, yes, slavery (about five percent of the population) for over a thousand years.
As others begin to disentangle themselves from the lamas’ siren call and enthrallment and the thought control these lamas have had over our Western minds and hearts, for the last forty years, stealing our natural compassion, our money, our labor, our academic credentials, to give credibility to their Tantra as a legitimate religion, we can begin to end their infrastructure build-out and influence ; an influence that is here, among our western democracies, to create chaos and confusion with each generation who becomes fooled by the siren call of Tantric eastern practices and the promise of ‘enlightenment.’
We can only hope, by speaking out, and telling our stories, that we can warn the West, and that others, who have been harmed by these lamas, exploited for their money, their bodies, for the lamas’ ‘couple bliss’ occult practices, and for their free labor, will join this movement to expose Tibetan Tantric ‘Buddhism’ for what it is: Lamaism, that eventually turns mindfulness meditators into cult-controlled obedient devotees, les idiots utiles du system, who appear to be bringing a form of ‘relaxation’ and peace to others, when they are the lamas’ obedient change agents, to help the lamas perpetuate their medieval world of superstition, misogyny, occultism and Brahminical elitism, to undermine our western democracies, with the hope that there will be no Western world of ours left.
Many, who are still in these Lamaist cults, are terrified of our voices being heard. They are doing all they can to dismiss what we are saying as ‘paranoid,’ or simply the rantings of disgruntled members who are singling out a few bad-apples, in order to protect the institutionalized sexual abuse of their gurus, their masters, whom they believe are ‘perfect’ and without any fault, and with whom they have taken vows to keep their secrets. These are members who are still under the Lama’s thumbs and thrall. But present themselves as Hollywood stars, celebrity ‘scientists,’ Tibetology scholars, gender-studies experts, even western psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists and ‘feminists.’ Their Tantric teachings and their vows to ‘perpetuate’ their gurus world overrides any sense of decency, secular ethics and compassion that they all claim to represent.
You will find them trolling on the comment sections of the few books and articles about the rampant sexual abuses of Lamaism and its true history and agenda. They are helping these lamas to keep from facing criminal charges and/or rebukes and public outcry. The mainstream media has been more than obliging to keep these victims stories out of the public’s view.
I will continue to add the growing links of more ex-Tibetan Buddhists and an ex-Enthralled public and their websites, as these voices keep speaking out.
