That thing is unreadable and I'm only on the second paragraph. How could Roach have gone so completely off the rails? And leading other people in this complete nonsense! What complete morons!
what are you reading??
In the post I clearly quoted what I was reading so this shouldn't have been a question:
http://www.michellemyhre.com/2012/04/se ... pened.html
I was referring to this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
However I just checked that link again and now that blog post has been somewhat modified with the author spinning their knowledge at the time of writing of the detailed facts around the situation.
Specifically, the beginning paragraphs of the original blog post found here (this was the original link)
Lama Christie practices the art of Spiritual Partnership. It's a Buddhist practice of seeing your partner as a holy enlightened being. She and Geshe Michael Roach posted lots of free audio teachings of their lectures on this topic, and I listened to each of these talks dozens of times.
A few years ago, Lama Christie fell in love with she & Geshe's attendant, Stanford grad Ian Thorson. I remember a moment of concern in 2009 when post-break-up Geshe Michael hit the clubs.
This stuff is unreadable. It is unimaginable that Roach and his group developed along these lines. This is the reason it is unreadable. This group is really no different that some clips from YouTube where people have created their self-styled form of what they imagine tantra to be. It's unreadablely offensive.
Lama Christie? He recognized her as a lama? I suppose since he apparently thought that she really was VY in the flesh, so perhaps an emanation as opposed to perceiving her as VY? Perceiving her as VY is correct but that doesn't mean that she is literally VY or a being with any fruition of wisdom and qualities at all. Spiritual partnership - again with them they took the principles behind this off the rails. Then - she fell in love with the attendant? Roach hitting NY clubs with one or more models in tow? It is unimaginably offensive to read that a person styling himself as a monk is going this (Buddhist teachers at clubs isn't - I could rattle off a few - but they aren't monks).
Anyway, I find all the essays, blogs, etc. surrounding this to be unreadable because so many violations are being enumerated as having taken place.
in the thing you quoted i didnt see GMR speaking at all?
He doesn't have to speak - I haven't read anything from Roach on this at all. It's his recorded behavior and the complete degeneration and failure of the original intention of their retreat/university project.
