Sex Rules at NKT

In 1991, Kelsang Gyatso distributed letters announcing that Kelsang Thubten Gyatso (Neil Elliot) would be his heir upon his death.

In 1996, Kelsang Gyatso announced that Elliot was the first qualified tantric master in Britain.

Shortly thereafter, Neil Elliot was forced to 'disrobe' (relinquish his NKT monk status). He was banished by Kelsang Gyatso for using tantra for sex with nuns and laypersons inside NKT, announcing that NKT was ruined.

Kelsang Samden (Steve Wass) was then announced as Kelsang Gyatso's heir. He too was caught for having sex inside NKT, disrobed and banished by Kelsang Gyatso, again announcing that NKT was ruined.

When victims of Elliot, Samden and other NKT sex predators shared their experiences of sexual predation inside NKT, Kelsang Gyatso announced that they were ruining NKT too.

Being ruined is a repetitive theme inside NKT (attempting to divert attention from the lives NKT has harmed) dating back to at least 1996. NKT even informed this web site that it too was ruining NKT.

Protective sex rules are nominal at NKT.

Example, NKT claims that someone disrobed cannot teach.

Well, Kelsang Gyatso's first sex predator, Neil Elliot/Kelsang Thubten, began teaching again by 2015 and got his robe as well as Gen-la title back (following years of directing Kelsang Gyatso's protest rallies and machine).

Here is Elliot during recovery managing NKT protesters (right side of photo in white; current leader in photo at far left).

In 2018, Elliot directed a TANTRA retreat in Spain, costing participants 120,00€ – 700,00€.

Tantra training is often delivered in NKT centers. An upcoming NKT event is particularly luxurious, held at NKT's Swiss mountain-top retreat center....SNOW MOUNTAIN RETREAT 2020, Blissful Union, The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra. Six weeks of secret tantra training.

"Immerse yourself in this supreme opportunity to enjoy the sublime practices of Tantric Mahamudra of the Ganden Oral Lineage. Based on the unsurpassed teachings from the book ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra’ by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, engage in each of the four great preliminary guides (approx 3 weeks) and then absorb into the five stages of the actual practice of Mahamudra (approx 3 weeks) which are the actual methods to attain full enlightenment in this lifetime. This beautiful practice will take place within the qualified retreat conditions of the exquisite environment of Kailash IRC – a quiet and joyful place located in the beautiful Swiss mountains."

From Kelsang Gyatso's book 'Mahamudra Tantra', "We begin by penetrating our own body...Penetrating another's body means relying upon an action mudra, or consort, and engaging in sexual intercourse. The bliss explained by Buddha in completion state Tantra is unequaled among all other typed of bliss and is therefore called 'great bliss'." This is the technique to attain enlightenment in this life time. Egregiously, NKT heavily markets this 'quick' enlightenment and urges all followers to participate. A quarter of Kelsang Gyatso's books focus on this subject. This is what Elliot, Wass and other NKT teachers tried but instead predictably harmed their tanta sex partner as well as violated Tsongkhapa's teachings on the subject (by the way, Tsongkhapa did not engage in consort completion stage, and almost no one is authorized to do so).

It should be noted that Kelsang Gyatso's lineage with Mahamudra was broken by 1996, when his connection was severed as explained by Sera Je Monastery August 1996. Thus all the tantra 'empowerments' and 'transmissions' sold by NKT are illegitimate, and thus are sure to fail and harm. Accordingly, many NKT survivors have described their abuse.

So tantalizing. All for about 4,000€ plus transportation. Totally sold out by November 2019. An NKT cash machine.

Marketing 'blissful union' and quick enlightenment through sexual penetration. No wonder so many have reported sexual abuse inside NKT.

An abused NKT nun shared her experience in 2015.



Editors Note
Kelsang Gyatso outrageously claims that only NKT holds the lineage to Mahamudra, and without NKT Mahamudra will die, when in fact Kelsang Gyatso both distorts 'his ' lineage and is broken from 'his' lineage.

 Neil Elliot proclaimed on behalf of Kelsang Gyatso, "And we can say these days, previously you could find the practice of the Mahamudra outside this Tradition; other Traditions held this practice. But these days we can say definitely it doesn’t exist outside of our Tradition. Only this Tradition holds the lineage, the pure lineage, of the Vajrayana Mahamudra. So this is what we need to preserve, this is what we need to protect."

However, based on the experiences of victimized NKT survivors, Kelsang Gyatso's lineage is better seen as a sex obsessed and sexual perversion lineage.

At any sign of sexual pressure find the nearest exit.
