Hearing the Voice of Internal Reform in Tibetan Buddhism Through Kalu Rinpoche II's "Broken Hearted in France"(Reproduced)
Published:2012/11/28 08:00

(By the True Heart News interviewing team in Taipei)In his video “Confessions of Kalu Rinpoche,” the Second Kalu Rinpoche spoke from his personal experience and exposed the inside stories of how lamas sexually abuse young boys and engage in fierce power struggle among themselves. He even wrote an article in his blog entitled “Broken hearted in France.” On 19 April, 2011, he succeeded to the title and wealth of the first Kalu Rinpoche. The Second Kalu Rinpoche voiced his thoughts, “I am tired of Dharma politics. I am tired of Dharma business.” He told his readers that he needed support to change “the system for a system that doesn’t involve abuse of power or abuse of money” to one that “is respectful of people and students.” His sincere confessions are written as follows:
As a matter of fact, many people have come to me and informed me about the misbehavior of some of the lamas over many years; moreover there is a deep unhappiness and disharmony among the residents. In the interest of protecting the center and the Dharma I requested the lamas there to step down. Shamelessly, in response, those lamas have decided with a lawyer to deny my authority as spiritual head of the lineage and this center.
Many times lamas talk about devotion. Devotion, devotion, devotion, but when I need to make a change that counters their plans, there is no agreement, no devotion. I am tired of Dharma politics. I am tired of Dharma business.
Since all those years, sincere practitioners have come, many have left, many have been disillusioned, many are sad, it is time to reconnect and put things back on track.
I want to change the system for a system that doesn’t involve abuse of power or abuse of money and is respectful of people and students. I want to keep Dharma safe. I want to keep Dharma pure. I want to keep Kagyu Ling safe.
I need prayers and support from all of you to put it right. Please join us in prayer and action during this difficult time. Sorry to bother you with bad news. I know that you have professional and family obligations, but at this time I really need you. (http://www.paldenshangpa.net/2011/04/broken-hearted-in-france/)
Chairman Zhang of the True Enlightenment Education Foundation remarks that this is indeed the Second Kalu Rinpoche’s sincere voice of confession. He has had firsthand experience since his childhood that lamas “appeared to be Buddhists” but acted ruthlessly rather than with compassion and modesty. He was sexually abused by his fellow lamas who studied in the same monastery; his teacher tried to kill him with a knife; a senior lama tried to control him to gain power over his authority and money.
After 3 years retreat, all the people are interested because you know they kind of think that I have this great qualification and something which I can remember about my past life and it's nothing like that. (http://youtu.be/z5Ka3bEN1rs)
I was recognized as the reincarnated late Kalu Rinpoche, for this title I have gained full respect from all dharma Buddhists. To be honest, I don’t believe the whole issue, why I say so?.... If I were his incarnation, I should naturally have known all the dharma at birth. In fact, I had to put much effort and study very hard by myself.

Chairman Zhang says that if we pay closer attention, it is not difficult to understand why Kalu Yangsi would make the following remark: “I see all these Buddhist people who are not Buddhist. They look like a Buddhist and they sound like a Buddhist and they act like a Buddhist and I am so confused.” (http://youtu.be/z5Ka3bEN1rs)
In reality, the inner circle of upper-level lamas is full of power-craving criminals. Their so-called cultivation is all for the purpose of acquiring control of worldly power. This is the underlying motivation that dictates all their actions. Chairman Zhang states that in the Second Kalu’s confessional video “Confessions of Kalu Rinpoche,” he directly exposed the shocking criminal acts within the system of Tibetan Lamaism. Lamas appear to be compassionate, philanthropic, and protective of the Buddha-dharma in front of the public. Yet, behind the facade, they were ruthless toward the young tulku. They had only one purpose: control the so-called reincarnation of the First Kalu Rinpoche and thereby gain control over the politics and resources of the sect, in particular money and power.
What the Second Kalu Rinpoche has gone through is not an isolated incident. Similar incidents are abundant in the recorded and verified historical accounts of Lamaism by historians: ruthless power struggles and clashes between different sects of Tibetan “Buddhism,” bloodstained violence, murders, and assassinations. Nevertheless, we should applaud the Second Kalu for his courageous exposure of his own horrible past within the tulku system and unveiling the dark and ugly truth of Tibetan “Buddhism” to the world. He intends to benefit others and he has a feeling of responsibility and determination to reform Tibetan Buddhism into “a system that doesn’t involve abuse of power or abuse of money.”
