    22 August 2013, by Tenzin Nyinjey

    It was a bleak, rainy day. The air was filled with mist. Everywhere one looked, one found dampness and mud. Not a ray of sunshine. Nor even the yearning for it in people’s mind. Add to this the house that I live in, a house not my own, but rented, on a land that doesn’t belong to me – despite the humanity of my landlords.

That you believe in me as a reincarnation of a Boddhisatva is your superstition. In fact believing in reincarnation is the worst form of heresy." Mila Repa’s above comment is enlightening. It testifies the corruption of the Tulku system and the dangers of theocracy to human (...)
