"So if it has been kept a secret for 1200 years why bring it into the open now? They get bored with all the cloaks and daggers?"
According to them, it's the "Earth Change" a term that has NEVER been officially defined by Dechan Jueren, and this is why the lineage is now no longer one master->one disciple only. The problem is the discontinuity on the teachings from Dechan Jueren to the other disciples. The other disciples lie to each other in order to tease, scare, garner favor, and appear greater than they really are. here's an example, they disciples take instruction form Dechan Juren, however Dechan Jueren can't speak English, and relies on a translator. The translator's exploits his master in adding his own spice and appending his own (of what i call ) "attainment commentary" to the teachings, little micro lessons on the curtials of the master, that were in no what what dechan juren said. Here's a link to a video of Dechan Jueren giving a lecture at the LA temple in regards to the fukushima nuclear radiation incident back in 2011, and makes plenty of references to the "Earth Change." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fanNCc8n ...

here's the translator's personal website:http://esotericschool.net/
It's filled with tons of lies to the other disciples, where the translator claims to have all these siddhi, and special powers, w/o any proof. The translator pretty much makes his claim to fame from this website, and does so by claiming that Dechan Juren gave him these special under the table dharma transmissions, that were exclusive only to him. ie, being able to to transmit the Ucchusma transmissions to others.
The disciples all also complain that Dan Kendall made himself the abbot of the "highest American Hanmi Temple" the one in LA, however he's only the custodian there, but he also leverages the language barrier to make himself look bigger/more important than he really is. Out of the disciples i've spoken to, they're all afriad of each other and have been taught that Dechan Jueren's the only entitiy on this planet with the ability to see this earth change, and there's really only one of them who could display any siddhi, or attainment, and he's now running around in the mountains and horse ranches of northern canada. I personally saw him take a cup of water and nudge it across the surface just by stareing at it. He could also emit lights, sometimes as a stright vertical line from his body, or other times as little dots either in the space in front of him, or like a little tiny fireball from his forehead. He said that he made his life so that all he does is do these tantras, he barely ever does anything else, he says that at times, even shopping for groceries is hard from him as items will continually ring up wrong, or the cashier can't talk to him properly, and he says he has to put his mind back into his pocket. (this is somewhat frivolous, however, i know what i saw, and to see this from a Caucasian westerner, makes me so shamed that Dechan Jueren could mismanage so many of his own American disciples like this. The disciples are all very very strange with a schizophrenic way of looking at things. For example, i talked to a couple that, when i had them over, seamed very level headed, and even were celebrating their new child. When I asked them about certian questions about the earth change, they froze. they were new people, with new refrence points on their life. for example, they told ME that they were even unshure about their newborn b/c of haveing to transport it/take care of it during the flux of this earth change. When i asked them about killing, they pulled out these small 5-7 inch long pairs of dagger they both had, and told me they were empowered to rip apart the "rings?" of any sentient being and that they would collect the merit. i know they were talking metaphorically, however that they couldn't even explain it to me if they themselves understood it.
