Bouddhisme, la loi du silence

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcbpwOzoejw

Abus sexuels, manipulations mentales et détournements de fonds : le bouddhisme tibétain est secoué par de graves scandales. Un récit fouillé qui lève le voile sur les dessous peu spirituels d’une religion vénérée en Europe.

Il s’appelle Ricardo Mendes et, très jeune, il a vécu l’enfer dans une communauté bouddhiste à Castellane, loin de l’idéal de sagesse prônée par son fondateur, Robert Spatz. Désormais en quête de justice et s’étant constitué partie civile dans un procès, Ricardo raconte comment le lama belge incitait ses disciples à lui abandonner leur progéniture, lui laissant le champ libre. Sévices corporels, privations de nourriture et de liberté ou viols subis par les filles furent le lot quotidien d’enfants sans protection. Ces abus ne relèvent pourtant pas de l’exception : depuis que le bouddhisme tibétain s'est imposé comme un phénomène de mode dans les années 1960, notamment en Europe, les scandales sexuels et financiers se multiplient, tandis que ses maîtres en exil prospèrent. Icône internationale, le dalaï-lama a lui-même longtemps couvert les agissements secrets de ceux qui servaient l’expansion de sa religion : avec une économie fondée sur la charité, celle-ci doit éviter les affaires trop tapageuses... Le lama Sogyal Rinpoché, à la tête d’un empire après la publication de son best-seller Le livre tibétain de la vie et de la mort, finit pourtant par être dénoncé par de nombreuses victimes pour son goût immodéré du luxe, son autoritarisme violent et ses dérives sexuelles. Il symbolise ainsi ce que le dalaï-lama nomme du bout des lèvres "les problèmes éthiques"...

Dans les arrière-salles des monastères
"Les gens prennent le charisme pour une qualité spirituelle." Grâce à ses révélations et à la qualité de ses intervenants, ce documentaire édifiant contribue à dessiller le regard occidental "fleur bleue" sur l’exotique bouddhisme tibétain. Il rappelle notamment que cette religion requiert une dévotion totale de l'élève, lequel doit certifier à son maître de garder le secret sur les initiations auxquelles il doit se soumettre : un terreau idéal pour couvrir d’une chape de silence les abus de toute nature. Les recherches menées par la journaliste Élodie Emery et le documentariste Wandrille Lanos affinent la perception de cette spiritualité qui se pare de tant de vertus, dont la pauvreté. Car le bouddhisme, véritable multinationale, se déploie avec ses têtes de gondole, ses produits dérivés (dont la méditation), ses filiales (les centres bouddhistes pour public aisé), ses stratégies de communication et agences spécialisées dans la gestion de crise. Fort de nombreux témoignages, dont des chercheurs et des adeptes abusé(e)s qui racontent l’envers du décor, ce récit fouillé lève le voile sur les impostures du bouddhisme, si prisé en Occident pour... sa quête de la paix intérieure.

Buddhism, the law of silence

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sg-5CDOcsTM

Sexual abuse, mental manipulation and embezzlement: Tibetan Buddhism is shaken by serious scandals.

An in-depth account that lifts the veil on the unspiritual underbelly of a religion revered in Europe. His name is Ricardo Mendes and, as a young man, he lived through hell in a Buddhist community in Castellane, far from the ideal of wisdom advocated by its founder, Robert Spatz.

Now in search of justice and having filed a civil suit, Ricardo tells how the Belgian lama encouraged his disciples to abandon their offspring to him, leaving him free to do as he pleased. Physical abuse, deprivation of food and freedom or rape of girls were the daily lot of unprotected children. However, these abuses are not an exception: since Tibetan Buddhism became a fashionable phenomenon in the 1960s, particularly in Europe, sexual and financial scandals have multiplied, while its masters in exile have prospered.

An international icon, the Dalai Lama himself has long covered up the secret dealings of those who serve the expansion of his religion: with an economy based on charity, the latter must avoid too flashy a business...

The Lama Sogyal Rinpoche, who became the head of an empire after the publication of his bestseller The Tibetan Book of Life and Death, was nevertheless denounced by many victims for his immoderate taste for luxury, his violent authoritarianism and his sexual excesses.

In the back rooms of monasteries, "People take charisma for a spiritual quality.

Thanks to its revelations and the quality of its contributors, this edifying documentary helps to unravel the "flowery" Western view of exotic Tibetan Buddhism.

It reminds us that this religion requires total devotion on the part of the student, who must certify to his master that he will keep secret the initiations to which he must submit: an ideal breeding ground for covering abuses of all kinds with a blanket of silence.

The research carried out by journalist Élodie Emery and documentary filmmaker Wandrille Lanos refines the perception of this spirituality which is adorned with so many virtues, including poverty. Buddhism, a veritable multinational company, has its own head offices, by-products (including meditation), subsidiaries (Buddhist centres for the wealthy), communication strategies and agencies specialising in crisis management.

With numerous testimonies, including researchers and abused followers who tell the story behind the scenes, this in-depth account lifts the veil on the impostures of Buddhism, which is so popular in the West for its quest for inner peace.

@PeljorTenzin Tenpel, you're going to have to stop this permanent whitewashing of the @dalailama, it's been 6 years now, it's been decades since 93, whatever you "Buddhists" invoke to justify this men legacy is a fallacy in itself, you have to stop LYING, monks are not supposed to lie, TENPEL aka Michael !

If you want to keep lying, disrobe yourself, and at least stop pretending you have any integrity when it comes to the entire question of abuses inside Buddhism.

It's over, You, Mary, you can bark all you want, this purulent abscess needs to be exposed for what it is, a systemic collective failure of Tibetan Buddhism. Until it does not acknowledge it, until it keeps pretending that whatever the fuck it did in the last 40 years is enough, this initiative will keep hammering it frontally and along with it all the dogs guarding the temple.

"It uses a recording of the meeting (the meeting was agreed by both parties to not be recorded)." <<<<--- THIS IS A LIE
3 people present at the "making off of this meeting" corroborate that there was no such agreement, it wasn't even raised.

1) there was absolutely no agreement between none of the parties that the meeting was not supposed to be recorded.

2) there was no agreement between anyone about doing or not doing a recording.

The DL "team" dealing with the "meeting" never talked about any recordings, by the way, they also took pictures of us and got a book, with 11 unknown, unpublished, stories of abuses inside Tibetan Buddhism, this book, I bet the DL never read it, you know why ? Because the institution is broken by design.

3) the recording was improvised, done on top of the minute, by Ricardo, because Ricardo decided to keep a record of this historical moment that the DL was USING as a way to get his "version" plastered in the entire English-speaking information space. The recording was made in the case the DL broke his promise and did precisely nothing or the opposite of what he announced to the 4 survivors at the meeting.

4) Ricardo "collaborated" with the propaganda that the DL made after the meeting by saying "you have given me ammunition to do something" by engaging himself and his office to actual action against this systemic issue, Ricardo purposely decided to give him a chance to actually do something, but he was very acutely aware the whole media operation was a way to contain the problem and to control the communication out of this visit in Amsterdam.

5) nobody is being fooled here, there was absolutely no agreement to not record the meeting, if there was, Ricardo never signed it, the group of 4 never mentioned it, nobody talked about it and Ricardo in front of the DL, took out his phone to SHOW a photo of the DL with Robert Spatz while the phone was recording the DL right in front of him, so let me make this clear :

If you are going to use this recording, and it's "legality" as a weapon against us, you're going to find us in your way and this time you'll not be able to control the narrative, neither anyone here doing damage control for the "Buddhists".

Your time is over. ya'll had decades to "take a posture", whatever TB took as a "posture" is the weakest demonstration of actual "Buddhism" that I have seen from ANY of the other religions concerned by the same drift, there is not such thing as Tibetan Buddhism Exceptionalism and we're about to smash what remains of it, precisely because for decades, the dogs guarding the Temple have been more concerned by their beloved cult figure than by the abuses themselves or the victims.

it's over.
