The Cult of Trungpa’s Shambhala Integrating into Canadian Military?


I know that Canada has gone somewhat mad, since Trungpa moved his harem-keeping, cult, and his army of the most fanatic devotees, with make-believe medals on their British-style Colonial uniforms to Halifax,, after his leadership-style was reported by  the U.S media in  The Nation in 1980.

When 10 years later, his AIDS-infecting Regent was featured in The New York Times, the rest of the obedient members, hightailed it to Canada, later changing its public name from Vajradhatu to Shambhala International, to declare its global ambitions and to avoid lawsuits after at least one young dharma brat died; after contracting the deadly disease from his guru. All the cult members were taught to believe ,by their gurus, that the magic practices of Tantra would protect both him and the hundreds of heterosexual students he seduced into unprotected sex  to prove their devotion to him. Besides, AIDS doesn’t exist. Not to these experts and  ‘researchers’ on the ‘scientific’  benefits of mindfulness. They are taught that facts don’t exist and reason must be abandoned to reach the higher consciousness of Shambhala Enlightened Warriorship.

Having Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister has probably not helped Canada, much,  but it sure has  helped the cult of Shambhala International, since Justin seems to live in a permanent state of make-believe, himself.

But I didn’t think the military in Canada could be this fooled. Maybe they are only being ‘nice.’  But do they know the roots of this mindfulness? That is comes from a guru-worshiping cult who felt they would be safer in Nova Scotia; which Trungpa described as possessing  a bigger dose of ‘primordial ignorance?’ Meaning not paying attention as much with  your rational mind.  Therefore, a  better place to secretly work on infiltrating into every cultural aspect of our western civilization, thus  able to slowly undermine the western reason and ethics in our democratic societies,  to be able to overturn it?  Does Canada yet know that Trungpa’s members all take vows to their Asian gurus to ‘perpetuate’ their Tantric, occult medieval world?

Does Canada have an intelligence community actually doing intelligence work anymore?  Does North America? Does anyplace in the West?   Or are these high-placed government employees all doing mindfulness these days;  all learning ‘not to judge?’

Had the first-response team,  in Florida, whose leadership couldn’t decide whether to go into that school shooting in Broward County, to save those children,  been doing mindfulness?  Police departments in Florida, and throughout the United States have integrated mindfulness in their training, brought to them by mindfulness trainers and  cult devotees of Tibetan Tantra, who are taught that facts and hard science should be replaced with scientism and feelings. That facts don’t really exist. Yet, they are taking the word of these guru-worshipers of Tantra,  that mindfulness will be the panacea for all the world’s sins.

Hesitation is what mindfulness eventually creates. Then cowardice, and fear of speaking outside the herd-mentality. BIG MIND is what mindfulness will create. In order to become unable to do what is right, ,BIG MIND will determine how to act, and speak.

China must be so please.

Now that Trungpa’s make-believe army, his seemingly silly, but dead-serious, make-believe military Vajra Guard,  originally Trungpa’s bodyguards, but now his ‘change agents to change the world,’ to 1230 A.D., have made inroads into the Canadian Military with its ‘mindfulness’ techniques’ and anti-democratic views.

Surely this can’t be true?  That Canada is this far down the rabbit hole of Trungpa’s ‘crazy wisdom’ influence?  That its military is listening to second-generation members of a medieval, misogynistic cult,  pretending to be  ‘secular’ ecumenical, and the ‘future of the world.”

A cult group whose leader kept a harem of his favorite sexual consorts, and his ‘advanced students’ in a mindfulness trance, that creates so much confusion, hesitation and ‘non-judgmentalness, over time, that the parents in these groups aren’t able to protect their own children from abuse, and themselves from  this exploitation.  In fact, the one thing that goes, with too much mindfulness, is the ability to decide a correct course of action in life and death and survival situations.

The arrogance of this Shambhala group is  still quite mind-boggling. But more unbelievable is that Canada is taking them seriously enough to even considered entertaining their advice on military view, strategy and tactics,  instead of  investigating  and prosecuting them for being a cult of organized abuse.


Is it politically incorrect  to let Canada and the United States know that  Shambhala International,  advising the Canadian military, is part of the Karma Kagyu sect lineage of  Tibetan lamas, headed by the 17th Chinese Karmapa; a sect realigned and promoted these days by the  “State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA), part of the State Council (the Government), and on the other hand, the United Front Work Department (United Front), one of the four main bodies of the Central Committee of the CPC?”

For the Shambhala member’s advice and report to the Canadian Military see:

An update from a reader who posted this recently to inform me that  cult members of Shambhala, and members of their faux-military, are hoping to wheedle their way into the Canadian Military giving advice.  This was a YouTube video, that was subsequently taken down:”

Shastri Carolyn K:

” I’m Carolyn K….., I’m a business executive and I’ve been a Shambhala practitioner for over 30 years, I’ve made a leap recently into working in a high tech company that interfaces between the military and large defence contractors and I’ve brought the view of basic goodness and the trust in the goodness of society right into the negotiations and contracting work that we do on some very challenging war fighter focused programs and the result of that has been that our company, ah, has been welcomed in to the situation in a way that people feel they appreciate our understanding of them and that we are not looking at them as aggressors but rather as people who are actually trying protect the people who defend this country so that has been recognized as a diferencial and has been good for our business too.”

Shastris are titles the Sakyong King, of the Imaginary Kingdom of Cult Shambhala, gives to those, who are the most fanatic change agents in the social/political realm, obeying  Trungpa’s command to ‘save the world’ with his enlightened dictatorship of  Shambhala teachings.

These inner circle cult members believe they are actually affecting a situation. Even though this is  just another  public relationship stunt so their membership will believe their guru’s Shambhala Enlightened Society and its delusional ‘elders’ are actually penetrating into the military.

Can silly be dangerous?  Can the ‘Mouse that Roared”–the  Shambhala administration-who abuse  their membership,  be given a voice in the Canadian military?

  1. Thank you, Christine for your brave and selfless work. The history of Shambhala International connection to the U.S. military industrial complex is much deeper and profound than touched on today. It has played a significant role in military strategy along the importance of color revolution technology and hybrid warfare techniques . Thank you for including the link to the 130 page presentation by Shambhala Dorje Kasung teacher. one such report titled ” Beyond an Enemy” was presented also to the Royal United Services Institute one of Britain’s oldest military think tanks.
    It is interesting to consider the author’s translation of the term Dorje Kasung and the exceptional liberties taken in the translation from tibetan into english. If we applied this approach to any language translation anything and everything can be rewritten to change all traditions and history to suit any pogrom.
    It has been said the difference between enlightenment and insanity is insignificant and in this regard consider where the desired outcome of Shambhala military training would measure on the Hare Report. When defending one’s family friends and loved one’s it is not necessary to have psychopathic leanings. These are left to the tool’s of agresor states with imperialist intentions as the ‘New World Order’ and globalization .Interesting how Adam Lobel borrows this expression when offering teaching online video for anniversary for the ‘stroke of ashe’.

    1. Yes, the ability to take liberties, is one of the skills, besides abject devotion, that a western Tibetan Translator must learn. You wrote: “It is interesting to consider the author’s translation of the term Dorje Kasung and the exceptional liberties taken in the translation from tibetan into english.”

      Once you are a Vajrayana students of these lamas, as all translators are, than lying for the lamas would be considered ‘bodhisattva activity.’ This is in no small part why such lying is now being accepted in our western societies. Because of this mindlessness ‘no-right-no-wrong’ view.

  2. For those interested in truth perhaps this video will set you free.

    Also may consider google shambhala ukraine maidan riots and the involvement and training of shambhala participants at Karma Choling Vermont. How they framed the struggle and the current state of affairs. Erica Chender would have you believe there is such a thing as non-violent revolution. She promotes color revolution technology along the lines of Otpor of Serbia , connected to Stratfor in addition to the Sakyong’s participation at Aspen Ideas Festival sponsored by large pentagon contractors Booz Allen Hamilton and Altrea the flags should be flying at half mast for all those compassionate and highly empathic individuals searching for peace love and understanding only to be swallowed and twisted by the machine with their machine hearts and machine minds; “they mine the mind of the individual like they mine the earth” (John Trudel).

  3. correction : “erica chender would have you believe…….should say “erica chenoweth would have you believe…… and John trudell quote is from his speech titled “I’m Crazy” and quote ” they mine the energy of the being threw how they imprint the human to perceive reality…………; the same way they mine the oil the same way they mine uranium; they mine the being of the human threw all these things how they imprint our perceptional reality and how they manipulate our intelligence. ,…..they mine the mind of the being like they mine the earth.

  4. Very interesting , it only took about one day for recommended video of Shastri C.K. to be deleted. I made several recordings for posterity. You can run and you can hide, as it seems for some openness is not the essential point.

    1. Yes, Peter, they are starting to take a lot of links off, ( Lama Mingyur’s for example, who, like so many of these lamas, is now in Chinese SAR territory, aligned with the Motherland.

    2. Hi Peter, as you can see I put the posts up again. As you suggested.

      C.K. is now heading the Trust Fund of the 3 little faux-princesses. Can you believe these people? They must know they have the most totally duped left, who would still be in this cult of Trungpa after negligent death, harems, pedophilia and the exposure of the sexual abuses of all these dharma brats in Shambhala by lamas and their western inner circle of teachers. Of course, they have surrounded Andrea Winn, to confuse her with the belief that they care about the sexual abuse being addressed. Are you kidding? These are same people donating to her Go Fund Me endeavor to address the sexual abuse by pretending they haven’t been the enablers of it for the last forty years. As though you could address it inside the cult instead of taking criminal charges, immediately. Who is letting these lamas and their inner circle of enablers get away with 60 years of abuse? When someone like Warren Jeffs, a polygamous is in jail? Lamaism’s sexual abuse that has influenced Hollywood to be the sexual abuse pit that it now is, thanks to Richard Gere, and all those Hollywood Shangri-la Directors and their Cover-Up Movies that dumbed down more generations? Did the former CIA-funded Dalai Lama fund, that turned into the National Endowment for Democracy, considered a CIA front, that continued to fund this kleptocrat for the last 60 years?

      That is the real question that should be on everyone’s mind, now. Again, it should be demanded of the CIA that they release the real history of Tibet and Lamaism, under these despots and cruel dictators, bred out of the violence of the Khans and the Asian Steppes. They must be afraid of the backlash. Even though it has been over 60 years, and the Sunshine Act should be in effect. Billions in Free Tibet monies while the Karme Kagyu, Trungpa’s group, has been colluding with China for the last 30 plus years! These Shambhalians are singing praises to their Chinese Communist Karmapa, and putting him over their head as their GURU. Whaaaaat? And no one notices, or comments? While they let delusional cult members of a Chinese- supported Karma Kagyu cult give military advise to Canada?

      So Carol K is now Carolyn K. the Shastri who will continue her abject service and devotion to within the Pillar of Economy ( i.e. Pillar of the Kleptocracy of Lamaism) and as the co-founder of the Mukpo Dong ( I could make a blue joke here but I will not) Princesses Education Trust, committed to the higher education, cultural heritage, and spiritual lineage training for our three Shambhala Princesses.”

      How many fake royalty can you put on a Shambhala Stage? As many snowflakes and mandala-crayoning cry-babies one can find to believe this nonsense.

  5. here is a transcription of video posted to youtube re 2013-2018 by shastri carolyn krusinski under the “shambhala in my life ” offerings to which I find it curious only one comment on youtube reflected a distaste for this mentality after four years of being offered to the shambhala community in an open youtube format. in my mind it speaks to a group think and cowardice that sours of a complete absence of bodhichitta. I am reminded of the Shambhala teacher fallback: “lets sit for five minutes”; great way to end a potential discussion.
    Don’t let anyone tell you I’m bitter, I like olives . Bye bye baby diana!

    Shastri Carolyn Krusinski:

    ” I’m Carolyn Krusinski, I’m a business executive and I’ve been a Shambhala practitioner for over 30 years, I’ve made a leap recently into working in a high tech company that interfaces between the military and large defence contractors and I’ve brought the view of basic goodness and the trust in the goodness of society right into the negotiations and contracting work that we do on some very challenging war fighter focused programs and the result of that has been that our company, ah, has been welcomed in to the situation in a way that people feel they appreciate our understanding of them and that we are not looking at them as aggressors but rather as people who are actually trying protect the people who defend this country so that has been recognized as a diferencial and has been good for our business too.”

    Hey David , say something stupid.

  6. Natalie Portman recently refused award from Genesis Foundation over Gaza events. What are the chances Shambhala humanitarians , fearless acharyas and shastries all, will post this news on their chosen social media platforms . I suspect the fear to question and communicate openly will be as representative as Shambhala commentary on this blog. Profound fear of communicating the Shambhala cocoon that encapsulates the group mind. Boy yonder and up and yawning Ethan Nichtern regularly victure signals his online students but dare he mention and name a fearless gesture Portman. Unnaming is in his nature along with missed-communication. Osel Tingsen yearly ‘Harvest of Peace’ lecture rarely mentions war. In ten years of perpetual war perhaps only twice in 2018 lecture. Available online until the regular Shambhala readers of this blog report this comment and self censor . Within the social justice movement mentioning the 800 pound guerrilla in the room makes it difficult to receive pentagon and NGO funding.

    1. Dear Peter,

      I didn’t feel any pressure but my own to temporarily remove them. I felt there was too much of “me’ replying. I have put them back up, as you suggested because there is lots of interesting material from others there.


  7. This Dr. Carloyn Kusinski worked for Solidus Techology Solutions in Boston alongside two of my acquaintances, one of whom oversaw the Human Resources Department until her retirement last year. The firm is the one to which she refers as supplying the US military. My two acquaintances, her former work colleagues, are still instrumental in failing to report my attempted murder at a Shambhala residential retreat centre in 2014. The former HR Manager in fact recommended the Director of that facility and replaced him when forced to do so as a result of my formal internal Complaint. So I call bullshit on guiding the military in protection. They couldn’t organise a pissup in a brewery.

  8. You keep talking about Trungpa’s harem’s Christine. Are you hurt because you were not asked to join in. Is that what all this is about? I think if you looked inwardly you might see that it is.

  9. To clarify ,Bruce

    What I found so comical is the base stupidity of your attack. More interesting however is your connection to the propaganda of the military industrial media complex and again how this keeps rearing it’s head within the environs of sham-bhala. Your production ‘Searching For Home, Coming Back From War(2015) as well as your earlier piece as line producer for Homecoming ; A Vietnam Vets Journey places you in a unique position to explain Sham-bhala ‘dharma-brat’ teacher and Kusung Amanda Hester’s explanation and teachings on fourth generation warfare and the promotion of this civilian focused war approach to the military industrial media complex.

  10. Let’s explore Acharya Marty Janowitz’s connection to Lockheed Martin. For all you haters out there…. think,; Barrett Brown.
    Marty applied the same technique all U.S. imports to Nova Scotia applied to which any local fisherman can attest. Lobby the ignorant local assembly and leave the locals without, prior to declaring less than. Piggy backing less than transparent ‘Clean Nova Scotia Foundation” to a VP job at Lockheed Martin ie: Stantec Consulting. Same building- same owner. Dartmouth Nova Scotia new construction to which I was in before Marty; contains two businesses under one roof ; Lockheed Martin and Stantec Consulting. So while Lockheed Martin places a certain effort in hiding the truth it has a more than intimate relationship with Stantec Consulting to which Marty is a glorious member and promoter of the MIC.

  11. In a Time article by Rep. Kay Granger March 17, 2014 titled ” How Women are Reshaping The Defense Industry “,it says ” Women currently hold a little over four percent of the Fortune 500 CEO positions. However ,in the defense industry, women are at the helm of 50 percent of the largest firms.”
    The CEO of Lockheed Martin is female. The CEO of General Dynamics corporation is female and the head of BAE Systems is female.
    Defense at four of the EU’s five largest economies is overseen by women as ministers of defense.
    Some psychopaths are female and some psychopaths are male .

    Beyond an Enemy: Exploring the need for mindfulness training in a new generation of warfare.

    Amanda Hester

    Fighting for Peace

    War and peace are two ends of a spectrum, intrinsically connected. The forward strategy employed by the United States, and by many western industrialized countries, has become a multi-headed beast, of peace enforcement, humanitarian intervention, and counter insurgency operations. It has developed a new kind of warfare, one that embodies the co-emergent nature of conflict and peace, whereby western soldiers on foreign soil rush in as medics to try and save the life of men they just gunned down. War is waged so that we can have peace, so that others may have peace……….Mindfulness practice , which develops peace within the individual , has become necessary in order to efficiently engage the mandate of this new warfare. ”

    Joaquin Flores:
    “Peace-loving people the world over are failing to mourn the death of the US’s war loving , vile US Senator John McCain , who thankfully died on Saturday at age 81. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..He was an untried war-criminal, and a perpetrator of crimes against humanity. Any number of his pro-war public proclamations , geopolitical projects , and lobbying efforts for war, were in direct violation of international law, the UN founding charter , and the Geneva Convention.

    ” Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it . To mock it .

Stories that are different from the ones that we’re brainwashed to believe.”- Arundhati Roy

    Debating the very existence of/for shame: Ethan Nichtern w/ Ponlop Rinpoche
    vimeo discussion titled “Shame and Culture with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche” ethan refers to shame as a’ blockade against mindfulness’
    As an aside;
    I met Ponlop Rinpoche in person at Gampo Abbey in the early nineties and he is no Arundhati Roy.


  14. Ponlop Rinpoche is really the Western societies useful idiot in that he provides a viable excuse for our binality.

    1. Mr. Rebel Buddha. All he wanted to know when I picked him up at the airport for a ‘dharma talk’ ‘gig’ as a ‘new fresh lama face’ at Karme Choling ( all the second-generation ( and old Tibetan) lamas from Nepal and India came there to try out their chops on the easiest to fool, the Shambhala /Vajradhatu cult members) was what Western music were young people in America listening to? It was clear he wanted to know, so he could appear as one of the new ‘hip and cool lamas’; this son of a bursar ( i.e. money-counter bureaucratic lineage holders) for the 16th Karmapa, and were the money counters for their guru tulkus labrangs, i.e. family lineage trust funds. Where the Sakyong, Osel Mukpo, Trungpa’s son, when not sexually abusing women, was stashing all the donations away in case he had to do a runner.

      The Bursar lineage of Tibetan lamas in Tibet were the governmental official lama lineage. They collected the taxes from the taxed-to death serfs. Akong Rinpoche, the bursar who ‘escaped’ with Trungpa, worked for the Chinese Communist party for decades( since the early 80’s) before mysteriously being recently assassinated, probably for being a traitor to the Free Tibet cause;the Tibetans not knowing that all these Tibet lamas are now in bed with the CPC.

      Few of his Western students know, and I wonder if Ethan Nichtern, that now, old dharma brat who promoted Ponlop, told them that Ponlop was just another dallying lama who got a celebrity pregnant and married her. And not the first one pregnant by one of these lamas.

  15. Excellent article on understanding the violence of 4th generation soft power techniques as taught by Kasung Amanda Hester and Shambhala International influence and violence of Shambhala Ukraine in preparation before, during, and after the 2014 riots and following destruction of Ukraine by Ollie Richardson titled ” Understanding America’s ‘regime change strategy in Russia’. June 19, 2019 at ‘’ blog. The precise violence of ‘soft power’ technology is clearly explained in the article and interview with Evengy Federov.

  16. Perhaps 4th generation ‘soft power’ ‘color revolution’ ‘hybrid warfare’ technology can be seen as a manifestation of matriarchy.
