Dear Chokyi,

I told you everything I told Gen-la Dekyong and Gen Jampa; however, you dismissed it and asked me to speak to no one else about it.  I understand about not speaking to the Sangha generally, but if my resident teacher, who is new, will not listen, then of course I will email other lamas within the NKT.

I do not feel we need to discuss this further; this is in Dorje Shugden’s hands, not yours.

Dear Kelly,

Gen Samten, who is the Resident Teacher at KMC NY, gave me good advice this year. He said, “deal with facts not opinions.” It reminded me of the scriptures that say, ” appearances are deceptive and my opinions are unreliable.”

Kelly, if you can prove to me with facts what you are saying is true, I am happy to receive this information and access it. However, I am unwilling to continue to listen to opinions. You have written to Kelsang Dechok, Gen Atisha, Gen Rigpa, Gen Jampa and Gen-la Dekyong on this issue rather than coming to me about it. Please Kelly watch your actions. There are so many facts that you are unaware of about Gregg Lane and Stephanie Gatschet. Facts that are about helping you and the Center thrive.

Dorje Shugden is a wisdom Buddha. Please use your wisdom and rely upon him instead of your opinions which are driving you to try and create disharmony—know that it will not work because Dorje Shugden is protecting this Center and the actions that I am relying upon him to make.

You and Kristen are in my thoughts and prayers. I do hope that we can resolve this so you can come back to the Center. Please present facts. Please discontinue writing others—this issue is between you and me.

With love and the Guru at my heart,


Kelsang Chokyi

Resident Teacher
Vajrarupini Kadampa Buddhist Center
