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.

The humanitarian situation in the [occupied] Lugansk Region is catastrophic - the bodies of the

said the head of the Luhansk military administration, Sergei Gaidai. An infection is spreading in
Severodonetsk, probably due to the consumption of water from the wells with the
