I am not new to this board even though I never posted here. I am a Lama Shenphen student since 2001 and I am posting this on a board because I want to see various oppinions on the matters that disturbed me for the past days.
First of all, I never knew that Chögyam Trungpa has died from severe liver failure due to alcohol. It would never bothered me if the official site of Naropa University from US stated that clearly. Instead, I found out on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%B6gyam_Trungpa).
Furthemore, his disciple ösel Tendzin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%96sel_Tendzin) contracted HIV and had sexual intercourse with several students and aparently some of them died because of this (Osel Tendzin died of AIDS in 1990). I understand as good as I can the crazy wisdom doctrine, but I cannot see any benefit in giving HIV to others, since Tendzin was aware of his illnes. To me, it looks like murder.
I was also shocked to find out that Dilgo Khyentse and the 16th Karmapa supported Chögyam Trungpa's behaviour.
Now, I want to talk about another characther that was recognized as a high reincanation by Penor Rinpoche. It is the american actor Steven Seagal. Who was in my country, Romania, for a few months to shot some movies.
All this time, Seagal was running around with at least ten women and he attented a fashion festival here, organized by a man who, in Romania, is connected (in the public consciousness) with drugs and prostitution. In fact, the man I am talking about lives offshore since the last elections (in Ibiza) and it constantly under the surveilance of the romanian secret services.
At this fashion event, Seagal said nothing but good words about Nicu Gheara, the man I was writing above. Here is a link in english for those who are not from Romania and obviously have doubts about what I am saying (http://18.104.22.168/search?q=cache:G7D1VtuO1ykJ:www.crji.org/arhiva/e_030526_1.htm+nicu+gheara&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1)
I have no questions. I just want to share this with you and wait for your oppinions.
