claims which, if verified, would lead any serious Vajrayana practitioner to question Jetsunma/Catherine/Alyce's "qualities," not to mention her "qualifications."
I know I keep reiterating what HH Penor Rinpoche said from his Throne at Palyul Retreat, not once but during two different retreat years...that westerners want to argue with, question, doubt his recognition and enthronement as a lineage holder of Jetsunma. He commented that Tibetans would not do that, as having accepted the purity of Holiness himself (at one time Head of Nyingma-pa)and his own recognition, then they would honor, respect and trust his capacity to determine who or what is a pure Tulku.
I am not intending to create a Western/Tibetan debate, however as HH pointed out, it is westerners who seemed to have created and continue to perpetuate this debate.
As a serious Vajrayana practitioner, my judgement of qualities or qualifications becomes irrelevant as long as I ensure that recognised great Teachers honour and support the activities. That is to me the point of Vajrayana - to rely on that which is not ordinary in order to accomplish the state of pristine recognition and benefit beings. Until I have accomplished that, then my judgement (by definition) is flawed and unreliable.
It is also important review the actions of that Tulku or Teacher and ensure that it reflects the qualities of compassion and wisdom. I have done that, and have witnessed the support of other great Teachers, so there is no reason for me to perpetuate my ignorance in this way through doubt.
If it is a true letter, and not a forgery
Here you raise a critical issue....today's technology allows for things to be fabricated, which means we are living in a minefield where lies can be dressed up as Truth and create layer upon layer of confusion. Kaliyuga, here we are. Personally, I am very cautious about believing what appears online in this barrage against Jetsunma, so conveniently supporting that she is a sham and KPC is a "cult".
I will continue to rely on pure Teachers as the only source of Truth, knowing that a "letter" posted on-line could have been concocted by anyone.
I had the honor a few years ago at Palyul Retreat to act as chopon (sp?) serving both HH Penor Rinpoche and Karma Kuchen Rinpoche. I have no doubt in the purity of either of them. The purity of Palyul and the Dharma in order to bring benefit is essential to them. I do not believe they would allow a "cult member" and student of a sham to serve in this way, as it would damage the purity of the blessings they bring through wangs.
I will continue to trust in the decisions and actions of Pure Teachers as my guide through ordinary view.
