Does anyone know of this place? http://www.acidharma.org/aci/index.html

I am wondering if these classes are a good resource and such.

Google "Michael Roach scandal." Also:


Dalai Lama's Private Office tells Roach he is not welcome in Dharamsala


News of the planned teachings...reached the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who immediately cancelled the booking at TIPA.

The following correspondence ... took place between the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Geshe Michael Roach:

May 24 2006 - Chhime Rigzin from the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote to Geshe Michael Roach informing of the cancellation of TIPA as a venue, and requesting him to cancel his teachings in Dharamsala.

May 30, 2006 - Geshe Michael Roach sends a long letter to the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, in both Tibetan and English, explaining that his "realisations" qualify him to teach in such a manner and justify his behavior with Christie Mc Nally. The letter was signed Rev. Michael Roach.

June 5, 2006 - Tenzin Geyche Tethong, Personal Secretary to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, replied to Geshe Michael Roach by email informing him that he was not welcome in Dharamsala, either to teach, or to attend the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Diamond-Cutter.org has been forwarded a copy of this letter, which is presented verbatim below. The letter speaks for itself. It is an unequivocal denouncement of Geshe Michael Roach, signed by the personal secretary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Caution would be warranted here.

Look instead to the FPMT and others like that.
"Things are not what they appear to be: nor are they otherwise." --Surangama Sutra

Phenomenon, vast as space, dharmata is your base, arising and falling like ocean tide cycles, why do i cling to your illusion of unceasing changlessness?
