Gyatso's Falsified Lineage

The 752-page book, published October 2019, 'Mind Seeing Mind: Mahamudra and the Geluk Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism (Studies in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism)' reviews Kelsang Gyatso's reputation, concluding that Gyatso is a highly controversial figure with a disputed Geshe credential. (indeed, he never received the Geshe degree/title) The book does not address Gyatso's denial of involvement with the brutal murders of three close associates of the Dalai Lama, fake NKT clergy, massive book ban, misappropriating true Kadampa Buddhism, illicit psychotherapy business or the full scope of Gyatso's global political protest rallies.

The book notes that Gyatso split from Tibetan and Gelug Buddhism due to personality and philosophical conflicts, a sound conclusion since Gyatso announced many years ago that they are corrupt and only he is the true savior.

The book notes that Gyatso was expelled from his Tibetan monastery.

Notably, the book also notes that Gyatso substantially falsifies the lineage of Buddhist tantra, removing Shakyamuni Buddha, his disciples (most notably King Sucandra of Shambhala), the 7 kings of Shambala, the 21 Kalki kings of Shambhala, Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa, Buton, Atisha (the founder of real Kadamap Buddhism), several notable others, and in modern times Ling Rinpoche and the 14th Dalai Lama.

Egregiously, Gyatso replaces these lineage holders he removed with himself!

And, he is the last in his listing of lineage holders, indicating, in his distorted view, the end of Vajrayana (see his book Great Treasury of Merit. And, because Gyatso claims to be a Buddha, Gyatso announced that he will not reincarnate.

Notably, Gyatso's list came from direct transmission for Gyatso's demon god Shugden to at the request of Gyatso's "faithful disciples."

Such blithering hogwash.

Notably, while Gyatso claims that Tibetan Buddhism is corrupt, all his books are based on Tibetan Buddhism, at least the parts he does not fabricate.


Editors Note
We wonder if anything about Gyatso and NKT is legitimate.
