Having been at KPL today for a teaching by Bardor Tulku Rinpoche, and having this come up a bit in the question and answer section, I just want to reaffirm that there's really no ill will directed at KTD by him in any way. When I asked him about the situation, he said that it really wasn't a KTD vs KPL problem, as they have both been around for quite some time now. Rather, it is more of a problem that needs to be worked out between KTD and the KTCs.

I still really hope and pray that the situation is quickly resolved, so KTD, the KTCs and KPL can all work together towards benefitting sentient beings, and that all the students of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche and Bardor Tulku Rinpoche don't need to be divided or estranged by these goings on. We're all dharma brothers and sisters together in this one.

Byron Coulter, who was fired by President Tenzin Chonyi for refusing to order a staff member to mow President Chonyi's lawn, (which event lead to Bardor Rinpoche's resignation and resulting turmoil at KTD), has written an article:

Very interesting windoverwater, thanks for this update.

I'm wondering if this Tibetan aristocratic mentality is present in all the lineages of Buddhism.

Can we take this down?

How much longer are we going to hear about this he said she said, I have been there for 10 years and I have been here for 15 years. Go take a pill or as your teacher would say, go meditate on impermanence ... those so call long time students, after so many years of studying and practice still carry so much attachment ...

Mr. Moderator, can we move this thread to another place.

I see no issue with this thread, but if enough people would like to move this to "Dharma-free-for-all", that can be arranged.

The topic has some relevance to me. There is some chance I will take refuge within Kagyu and if there is a schism in progress then I need to decide who to go to.
