Karma Dorje, thank you for your respectful tone towards ani-la. A pooh-fight is no way to join a forum, but I'm not going to let her walk into this alone.
Karma Dorje wrote:Is she (Ahkon Lhamo) capable of bestowing the wongs, lung and tri for the lineage's teaching?
Tri -- Yes, she's been given the authorization to give commentary from 1987 on.
Likewise, in 1987, her Bodhisattva and Lay Renunciate vows were authorized by HH Penor Rinpoche as belonging to the lineage. I'll have to ask Ani Aileen for the videotape to get the exact phrasing.
Lung -- Yes, she's given lung many time for ngundro, shower of blessings, and most of the temple practices.
Wang -- You'd have to ask HH Karma Kuchen Rinpoche.
She was enthroned, she's done ngundro (Gyaltrul Rinpoche), tsa-lung (Gyaltrul Rinpoche), trekchod (HH Kusum Lingpa), togyal (HH Kusum Lingpa), and dzogchen (His Holiness Penor Rinpoche). I don't see why not. The main problem is Tibetan. She has a passing knowledge of Tibetan, some vocab, I don't know how much grammar. She took classes way back when, but I don't think it's enough to do the ritual manual without a translation.
* Here's the text of her Bodhisattva Vow:
I dedicate myself to the liberation and salvation of all sentient beings. I offer my body, speech, and mind in order to accomplish the purpose of all sentient beings. I will return in whatever form necessary, under extraordinary circumstances to end suffering. Let me be born in times unpredictable, in places unknown, until all sentient beings are liberated from the cycle of death and rebirth.
Taking no thought for my comfort or safety, precious Lama (Buddha), make of me a pure and perfect instrument by which the end of suffering and death in all forms might be realized. Let me achieve perfect enlightenment for the sake of all beings. And then by my hand and heart alone, may all beings achieve full enlightenment and perfect liberation.
His Holiness Penor Rinpoche liked it.
I'm seeing a lot of loose accusations about Jetsunma's "behavior" but frankly, Mujushinkyo brought the FBI on himself.
He Tweeted things like "I'm coming tulku k-k-k-kill you" to @jalpalyul (her Twitter account) while there was an ongoing investigation of Bill Cassidy, a convicted felon indicted for rape (pled down to assault), who was also threatening her. Why say stuff like that?
