But clearly actual debate is not on the agenda.
You have your firm opinion.
It will of course change nothing .
The Aro has a small and dedicated Sangha who do not spend their time castigating other groups.
That will continue.
Each of its members is aquainted with all of the critiques both informed and otherwise aimed at them, and have decided to exercise their own judgement on the matter.
From time to time they will be joined by others who have weighed the issue.

By the way some years ago I pointed out in the discussion (probably here on DW) that Rangrig Dorje could not have been father of Aro lingma (the dates did not fit) and lo now they changed it to him being guru of her mother.

It seems he is quite adept at attaching himself to lamas in this way and using their esteemed reputations to bolster his own.
