Context Matters

There are many reasons why so many have been harmed by Gyatso/NKT.

Lies, abuse, sexual assault, fraud, stolen from, financial hardship, mindfulness scams, cult brainwashing, pathologic ego enhancement, being thrown out of their rental room, retribution, defamation, lack of caring or protective mechanisms, bogus psychotherapy and more.

This NKT slide from a recent NKT video exemplifies NKT nihilism.

It's Gyatso's ultimate rationalization for professing innocence in the harm he does and causes others to do in his name. (his innocence does not exist)

He or his cult followers can harm you in any way they desire...only to claim that they harmed someone who does not exist. Therefore, the harm they caused does not exist. Things in the past do not exist. The terror of rape, separating you from your family, assaulting your reputation, conning you out of thousands of dollars/pounds/euros and more does not exist. It's all in your deluded mind. It's your fault for being harmed.

And if you report their harm to you, they attack you, threaten you, claim they will sue you, denigrate you with your employer and unleash Internet attacks against you. They will call you mentally disturbed. One NKT survivor even had a dedicated web site created against her...using her full name in the web site url. And then they will say that none of this exists because it is in the past while concurrently claim that it happened because of your karma. All harmful Gyatso/NKT gibberish.

Some have been seriously scarred and some have been permanently scarred. Some lose themselves down a rabbit hole when they are told they and the adverse effects of Gyatso/NKT, their families, their love and their suffering do not exist.

Gyatso/NKT's response, so what. You are on your own. Get over it. Shut up, or else we will come after you. We will squash you...while we profess you do not exist. What we did to you did not happen because it happened in the past, which does not exist. Gibberish, their ultimate defense for their harm. After all, they have to keep their revenues flowing. (somehow, their revenues exist!)

Addendum: In 2010, for a month, a web site was created by 'puremindpureworld' to assault this web site, nktworld.org (see 2010). Years later, Lucy James (thrown out in 2008 by Gyatso though later to return to Gyatso) wrote an article 'Pure Mind, Pure World', in which she says "I had a splitting headache the other night and I was able to remember that there was no head there to grasp at."

Lucy James relies on this gibberish in her article,

'Reality is not reality' is a recurring 'teaching' of Gyatso. A headache is not a headache. What happens in your dreams is real but what happens when you are awake is not real. Appearances, which do not exist, in your dreams teaches you that appearances when we are awake do not exist. Our (Gyatso/NKT) abuse of and retribution against you does not exist. They are merely non-existent appearances. The sexual assault you experienced, perpetrated by the highest ranking NKT 'monks', was not real even though we threw them out for their attempt at a sexual lineage AFTER their crimes and your devestation were made public (alleging the sexual lineage, Gyatso claimed one of them destroyed the NKT). [Gyatso wrote, "You have destroyed the NKTs reputation and the power of all NKT Resident Teachers...you tried to spread a sexual lineage...After you left many people confessed to me that you had had sex with them. You had sex with so many students and through your deceptive actions one nun tried to commit suicide because of your sexual behaviour towards her." Notably, in 2004, this Gyatso heir dismissed in 2007 after his NKT sexual lineage became public, said to the LA Times that before NKT he led “a fairly degenerate lifestyle.”]


When we use to listen to Lucy James in class, including a tantra retreat, she was so much better than this. We also agreed with her refusal in 2008 to comply with Gyatso's order to produce soldiers for his political war, and we were deeply saddened by Gyatso's caustic remarks against her as he threw her out.


Editors Note
Fine commentary from an NKT Survivor,

"This is one of the areas where the NKT is truly dangerous. This mixing of the Buddhadarma with amateur psychotherapy has potentially disastrous results. Trauma is not just "in your head", it leaves a real, physical imprint on your body, jarring your memory storage processes and changing your brain. Untreated past trauma can have a big impact on your future health. The emotional and physical reactions it triggers can make you more prone to serious health conditions including heart attack, stroke, obesity, diabetes, and cancer, according to Harvard Medical School research. Therapy can help in unlocking or processing the traumatic memories, releasing them from being trapped in your system. When the traumatic memory is reintegrated in the mind, the brain can begin to heal. Trying to just letting it go as if it didn't exist or had happened to someone else, will only exacerbate the problem, in the long run. No wonder so many people in the NKT admit openly of being depressed, not feeling successful at the path."

Correct. A past trauma does not stay in the past, its 'scars' carry forward. Likewise for Gyatso/NKT-induced and -exacerbated trauma.

Please, do not allow the fake Gyatso/NKT clergy and psychotherapists treat your trauma OR cause your trauma OR worsen your trauma (inside NKT or outside through its retributions, threats and defamations).

Governments, on behalf of public welfare, should step in to eliminate Gyatso/NKT's dangers.

Gyatso/NKT's pattern of harm should be addressed through class-action litigation. There would be at least hundreds of plaintiffs and several millions of dollars/pounds in damages as partial compensation.

Gyatso/NKT's board of directors should be counseled and respond to end Gyatso/NKT's pattern of harm. They have responsibilities to address the adverse effects of Gyatso/NKT.

Gyatso/NKT attempt to claim that the trauma they produce does not exist is yet another fraud.

Gyatso/NKT followers and survivors have rights not to be harmed.
