Perhaps OTR didn’t actually read the letter and its stories of suffering and harm.

What is your opinion: are there times when sexual relationships between a Buddhist teacher and their student could be appropriate?They were also acting out of a sincere desire to protect the Buddha Dharma in the West. I truly hope that other teachers who have taught at Rigpa will step forward now and help the sangha with better compassion and clarity.It was their (correct) belief that Sogyal Lakhar’s unethical and abusive behaviors were leading students astray and harming people’s understanding of the Dharma. But just to be perfectly clear about OTR’s brutal assertion about Sangye Ngawang’s samaya and karma, here is a wonderful instruction from HH Dalai Lama about this subject and about sexual abuse as well.A mistaken action doesn’t destroy their good qualities.If you criticize in this way, there is no danger of hellish rebirth as a result.Are there Asian methods for dealing with abuse and for helping the involved parties?

HHDL: In the case of monastics, if any of the four root vows—to abandon killing a human being, stealing an object of value, sexual intercourse (heterosexual or homosexual), and lying about one’s spiritual attainments—is fully transgressed, that person must leave the monastery and is no longer a monastic.

Further, the tone of the letter was measured and calm as they called for Sogyal to please hear them and help restore faith in the sangha. These instructions were given to a group of Western Buddhist Teachers (WBT) in 1993.

—the commitment and bond with their guru—if they speak openly about what they perceive to be abuse. We should respect the common perspective of the world in terms of what is right and wrong.

If an individual does not listen to the Buddha’s instructions, it is doubtful that they will listen to ordinary people like us.

Earlier I suggested that when a teacher is clearly acting unethically and students have tried to discuss it with them but without result, then the only recourse is to publicize it in the community.

I didn’t speak out of hatred or disrespect, but because I love the Buddhadharma and their actions went against it.
