Looks like someone asked about Lynch's credentials on his student's blog
Paul was given inka and transmission by Ji Bong. He has all the appropriate authorization papers and I have personally seen them. More importantly, he's a wonderful teacher who gives of himself and his time without asking for anything in return.
So...what's the truth?
Truth is he forges papers and uses modern methods to give false ordination as he did me. Your paperwork means nothing anywhere but under Paul Lynch, he never received any transmition and he was ask to leave and is not aloud to formally teach. He just ordained into another tradition, when you take ordination it says and you swear with your life while under that tradition you can not follow another masters teaching without the approval of said master. His master in the Korean tradition is who? And where was he at last weeks ordination into the Vinaya Vietnamese tradition for-which he changed yet again his dharma name. He gave me ordination into the FMZO in June of this year when I started the college of the Ven. Karuna Dharma`s, i excepted his fake and made up paperwork dated back to 2010 of Feb. when i was at IBMC taking real Precepts under the Vinaya with the Ven. Karuna, but it was the only way i or he would let me into the Zen college of my teachers that he took over some how and all of IBMC is waiting to hear how he did that, its news to them at the temple. His fake paperwork i have ordains me at within days of my true ordination. Hehas no paperwork to prove anything that he has not technically made up himself as he did mine. i just said okay to play along so i could go to my teachers school the Ven. Karuna and I even talked to a real Heir in the Korean tradition about it and he said to learn what I can and that even the path of a crooked figure leads to the moon, for me not to feel like i made a mistake or guilty for it that it is his karma. So all t hat paperwork crap is just that crap, he makes it up and if you want me to show you I have no problem. i will cut and past to this site and post and all of you can see the dates for yourselves. He says he was ordaining me in " this is to certify that on the 2nd day of February in the year 2010,
Travis Lee Adams (Original Name), Mùjīn Cíbēi 穆金慈悲(Buddhist Name), --------------NOTE:" he even took it to change my name with even asking here"
was granted authority as a Zen Priest (Sunim) and took Sixteen Precepts
at the International Buddhist Meditation Center
in the Five Mountain Zen Order.
