An NKT nun, 'ordained' 10 years ago, wants to spend at least $5,000 to benefit NKT. She is disabled and seriously sick.

As of September 18, 2019, she has been pleading for help for 135 days, over 4 months.

She has raised $195, or $1.44 per day. Only 10 contributors have responded. She is at 4% of her $5,000 goal.

In exchange, she is offering about $200 in perks for each of her contributors, eg an ebook for the visually impaired, an ebook about making your life and career a success, an online meditation and relaxation course and an online stress relief course.

No help from Gyatso/NKT to help support their nun's plea for help to purchase NKT festival recordings, attend a festival for her 'Highest Yoga Tantra' empowerment, to attend a 'foundation program' and to purchase NKT books/CDs.

Gyatso/NKT have no use for anyone unable to afford 'membership' in their cult.

This nun, and everyone else, would do far better staying close with friends and family.


Editors Note
Mistakenly, there was a time when we would have gladly funded this nun. We did so for other NKT clergy. But, finally in 2008, we learned about Gyatso/NKT's assault on Buddhism and its clergy and survivors.

Why attend NKT when its own founder, Gyatso, wrote this to his first named heir caught sexually assaulting NKT nuns? Why didn't Gyatso, marketed as having infinite omniscience and infinite wisdom, protect this and other nuns from sexual assault inside NKT temples?

"I have received your email message. You have destroyed the NKTs reputation and the power of all NKT Resident Teachers. Through your actions so many ordained Teachers have disrobed following your view which is opposite to Buddhist view – you tried to spread a sexual lineage which you yourself created. Even in society a Teacher cannot have sex with students. 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. Because the NKTs reputation and power of the Resident Teachers has been destroyed by your activities now the future development of the NKT will be difficult both materially and spiritually. However, I myself and all my students are working hard to recover the damage you made. We will never allow your sexual lineage to spread in this world. I have no connection with you."

This 'monk' responded to Gyatso.

"Under the guise of service to the Spiritual Guide, the Tradition is being misdirected, even subverted. As senior practitioners continue to meet with a similar fate, it is being left in the hands of the ambitious, who abuse their authority. A crack has formed within our Tradition, weakening it. With only compliants allowed to assume or remain in any position, with priorities upside down, and with methods of management unacceptable in modern society, I dissociate myself with what will eventually become evident to all."

Sadly, there have been many reports of sexual abuse and an array of other forms of abuse since. Cults simply cannot stop their abuse.
