No Sangha due to Dalai Lama’s ban, and general ignorance issues

Dear Ven. Geshe-la, Gen-la Khyenrab, Gen Rigpa, and Gen Jampa,

I am writing you this Christmas Eve, to sincerely thank Geshe-la and the others of you that I have had teachings with, and also Gen-la Khyenrab, for teaching valid dharma.

I would like to point out, as this is the 2nd year my family has been completely cut off from all Sangha, that we will not be attending OSG tomorrow.  As I wrap presents for my 5 year old daughter (6 in January) I think, well, I want to give her the real helpful stuff— not just material objects.  Unfortunately since we became NKT people we were shut off from the rest of Buddhism, more or less.  Then, when I told that we (truthfully, before all the Buddhas of the three times and 10 directions, yes I am 100 percent truthful) have a lot of Dalailama,anti-Shugdens in the NKT, we have had no contact at all with anyone, though I did try.  We have been shunned and ostracised from our supposedly Shugden community for saying we have Dalai Lama people.  That’s odd, if we are supposed to be an open democracy.

Everyone came up with different excuses, but none would hold up under scrutiny if they were being slightly Buddhist or truthful.  They are all treating us very badly.  I do not care at all about seeing them from just my own personal wanting to be around people— they have treated us so badly I doubt I will ever trust them again.  However, the issue I would like to raise is that I am completely shut off, no one knows I exist, as a Shugden Buddhist, but thinks the imposters represent the NKT.  Furthermore, it is destroying the cohesion of the community, because we cannot be accepted if I spoke the truth, and my daughter and I neither one have good access to dhama (Rigpa’s FP correspondence often has a substitute who is clearly a fake NKT (really a Dalai Lama person).

So I just wanted to say, that this is no way to allow your school to be represented.  I consider myself a Kagyu at this point, who has a heart commitment to Dorje Shugden.  I can’t consider myself Buddhist otherwise, because the NKT is mostly following the Dalai Lama, who is not a Buddhist, but a cult leader.

Ven. Geshe-la, I hope you will do something.  I consider the treatment people who are genuine will receive at your school will not be as you intended it, but they will be treated worse than dogs and outcastes by the Dalai Lama take-over crew.

I am including, for the sake of contrasting hypocrisy of some “NKT” students/teachers, Geshe-la’s holiday wishes vs. Kelsang Choki’s order for my silence and Steve Cowing, who I am assured speaks with Geshe-la’s voice, order for my never to write him either.

I think your lineage is a fake right now, because it follows the Dalai Lama.

Subject: Letter from NKT Education Council

To Kelly Inman

So far you have written for over 2 years to Gen Jampa, Gen Rigpa, Gen-la Khyenrab, myself and many other people criticising the NKT’s GSD Gen-la Dekyong, without saying one single truthful word. Your letters are filled with your own hallucinations. The NKT has over 1000 Dharma Centres throughout the world and all the people of these Dharma Centres are our witnesses to prove that Gen-la Dekyong is a pure Dharma practitioner especially a sincere Dorje Shugden practitioner. She is the most qualified Dharma Teacher of both sutra and tantra. Her good heart, teachings and her way of showing a good example are unequaled. All NKT people understand this. We can say the same for Gen-la Kunsang. The reason why we did not previously reply to your letters is that we believe from your way writing you appear to have a mental problem so we didn’t want to cause you more suffering.

However now I would like to suggest that you must please stop writing letters like this in the future. We have the collection of all your previous emails. So now you have a choice either please stop writing these kinds of letters or we will pass your previous emails with your information to the police.

Kind regards
Steve Cowing
NKT Education Council


Kelsang’s Chokyi’s message from two years back, in which she lies, and which was her move to rid her Sangha of Shugdens

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
