Judaism and the Occult

An interesting take on the occult from a Jewish Perspective.

Judaism and the Occult

I am wondering if certain aspects of Buddhism might be considered idolatrous according to this perspective. I hear Western Buddhists bragging about how "Buddhism is atheist" or that You can be a Atheist and be a Buddhist.

That was never a big selling point for me, when I was initially interested in it. Maybe that is why I like the Bhagavad Gita so much, because it basically comes down to Krishna worship vs. Buddhim's Nothingness.

No wonder Fascists like Eagles so much

This is a Cultural legacy IMO of the Original Barbarian rulers of the Old World. These are modern day Kyrgyz of Central Asia roaming the Steppes on Horseback hunting wolves with Golden Eagles.

They train these Egles to kill marmots, then small foxes, then full grown foxes, then wolf cubs and finally full grown wolves.

If that isn't a barbaric passtime what is? Its like the height of barbarism and refined skill. I mean what is more bad ass than that? Invading and conquering China, India and Europe I guess.From the Wikipedia Entry on Kyrgyz:

V.V. Bartold cites Chinese and Muslim sources of the 7th–12th centuries AD that describe the Kyrgyz as having red, sometimes blond hair, blue or green eyes, and white skin.[10] These features were markedly different from those of modern Kyrgyz, which led Ibn al-Muqaffa to suggest in the 8th century AD that the Kyrgyz were related to the Slavs.[10][11]

The descent of the Kyrgyz from the autochthonous Siberian population is confirmed by recent genetic studies.[12] Remarkably, 63% of modern Kyrgyz men share Haplogroup R1a1 (Y-DNA) with Tajiks (64%), Ukrainians (54%), Poles and Hungarians (~60%), and even Icelanders (25%). Haplogroup R1a1 (Y-DNA) is often believed to be a marker of the Proto-Indo-European language [13] speakers.

Because of the processes of migration, conquest, intermarriage, and assimilation, many of the Kyrgyz peoples that now inhabit Central and Southwest Asia are of mixed origins, often stemming from fragments of many different tribes, though they speak closely related languages.[8]

Before they became Muslim they proacticed Shamanism. I can see the Eagle playing a role similar to a powerful Totem, which as these Barbarians conquered people to the South East and West later became a symbol of the Imperium.

What is a Redneck?

Basically they are the descendants of the Scots Irish. Which appear to be the original blueprint of what Army Officers of the British Empire came to refer to as Martial Races

Here are some articles about this ethnic group and the significant inflence its had on American culture Wikipedia entry on the Scots Irish

Born Fighting. How the Scots Irish shaped America

These are the people who for the most part all supported the American Revolution, killed off the Indians and settled the Appalachians, and the Frontier, fought bravely in two world wars and worked as laborers in the industrial revolution.

Their ethnic character was shaped by living in a state of continual warfare in the border region of Scotland.

I would say most of them vote Republican today, the guy that wrote the book though is a democrat. They are Republican because they value individualism. Many today may be so called working class, but they are never going to become aligned with socialism, because they aren't collectivists.

Be that as it may there is a long history of the British manipulating these folks and maintaining the upper hand.

Arguably they are being manipulated even more today, because "The British" for all intents and Purposes have retaken America, through the Federal Reserve system, and the Corporate Capitalist Military Indistrial Complex.

18 year old Rednecks just love to join the fucking army and thus directly support the Empire their ancestors fought to become independant from.

Still though you gotta respect them for how they are able to survive. They are a hardy bunch.

Another interesting article: The Scotch Irish Vote

Case in Point

Pretty much, I left Alaska for Seattle, because of the whole rednecky vibe of Alaska. Thats the culture that dominates out there. Its a bunch of drunk rednecks with guns and like six junked cars on their land in front of their residence. They enjoy the outdoors not so much as nature lovers but in the sense of shooting everything. They are a noisy bunch always shooting guns and running chainsaws and loud atvs and snow mobiles. They love to tear shit up, cut down trees and move dirt. They hate the indians for the the most part.

That's pretty much the typical rural Alaskan.

So I think thats a case in point. Here is the most extreme place to live in America in terms of survival and its dominated by rednecks. They even wear cowboy hats and listen to Country music.

All the shit you see on the Travel Channel is a fiction. The reality is that its a bunch of rednecks, for the most part with redneck values.

I have a grudging respect for these people, but I am not one of them. So that's basically why I left for Seattle.

In Seattle there is much more opportunity for "cultural enrichment" Art, ethnic food, Indy movies and Music etc. which I value.

I mean I am exagerating to make a point to the point of being insulting. I admit that. But the fact remains rednecks are a lot more durable a segment of the population in terms of a "crash" or whatever than some Indy dude with a piercing on his dick that knows all about Camus and Nihilism and existentialism and maybe how to play the guitar and beyond that not much else. Even though this guy might be more informed about "peak oil" and so fortth, ironically he has no channce of surviving it. Rednecks, more or less ignorant of these complex social factors probably will.

Thats the way I see it

If the Shit Ever Hit the Fan

Looking around, I kind of feel like I know who would survive. Its guys like this:
Picture a guy that grew up on a Farm, or something like that, and now owns a Construction Business. He enjoys hunting and Fishing in his free time and owns a lot of guns. He is considered an alpha male in his little circle with people relying on him, close family, relatives, employees. He is a leader and knows math and basically how things work. He is a generalist. Politically a bit conservative, maybe even a bit of a bigot. That's not his public face, but deep down he's a bit of a bigot.

The fact that he owns so many guns reveals much about his politicl outlook.

So when the shit hits the fan, people like this are going to be in charge a lot more. They already know how to negotiate with government, police, etc. Other business owners, because that is what they do. These are skills you need to be a successful business owner. They are connected through various relationships to other people that know how to do things also, Redneck type people that fix shit for a living.

So if society breaks down and you get a bunch of black people and minorities running around in the streets, looting, this thin vaneer of sociability is going to go away fast. The gloves are going to come off. They will be shot dead in the street.

Even if urban gangs hold sway for a while, eventually they will systematically be destroyed. Because in essence they are parasites. They sell drugs, basically. That is their sole livlihood.

So if people have to go back to hunting and farming for a living, the people in charge are going to be Rural White people that already know how to hunt, fish and farm and build and fix things. They are going to form into tight knit communities and a lot of slack is going to be removed from the system.

Picture going to a lake to fish and being met by Armed white dudes, telling you to fuck off, this is their lake. That's what it will be like. You will have a male dominated society once again. It will be like the Wild west, everyone travelling with guns. Unlike the Wild West, there will be lots more people.

What I call "slack" are all these elements that are considered "social" The types of sentiments Sociology and Humanities majors value. Diversity, multiculturalism, Art and literature, Liberal Urban culture, basically.

Picture some queer androgynous looking college students, with tattoos and piercings, walking around filled with ennui and contempt for mainstream society spouting philosophy and constantly listening to endless varieties of music.

When the shit hits the fan these people will become extinct. They are a decadent form of humanity. Same thing with many more mainstream looking professional yuppie types. Anyone with an office job: dead. Anyone that relies on public assistance: dead.

Unless they can adapt.

But the people in the best position to adapt are the people that resemble most an earlier stage of Civilization. Rural people that own guns and know how to work with their hands, Farm, hunt and fish. Also these people that have values of being suspicious of outsiders. So when resources get so limited that they haver to choose who to help and who to turn away they won't waste time deciding. They will help people just like them. People they already know.

Possibly there will be little enclaves in various areas of more self sufficiient type immigrants Like Asians, because they too have values that hearken back to an ealier closer to the brass tacks form of existence. The southwest will probably be dominated by enclaves of Mexicans.

And probably in the South there will be enclaves of rural blacks. I think Black Churches will exponentially become more important to blacks. That's the only hope they will have really, organizing through their Churches.

But Liberal Urban culture will be gone Because its too far removed from bare bones survival. Its all based on seeking novelty. Its slack. Its extra. These environments are created in times of prosperity. Its all fluff. Its a segment of society that exerts a lot of influence on America as a whole, but only goes so deep. Its all very ephemeral, though, like fog.

When the fog dissipates it reveals a more concrete reality. Armed rednecks. That's who settled America. That's who killed or drove off the Indians. That's who settled the frontier and established farms and built the infrastructure.

There is a Foundation stretching all across the country, a bedrock, of these type of people, and over this foundation is built this massive decadent superstructure.

Stripping away the superstructure reveals the bedrock.

I'm not saying its good. I'm not saying its bad. But that's how I see it going down. Personally, I can't relate to rednecks. I don't like country music, I'm not handy. I don't hunt and fish much. In theory I support hunting and fishing, but I relate more to the REI crowd than the Cabellas crowd.

Go into a Cabellas sometime and feel the vibe. Look at all the dead animals on the wall, look at all the trucks out in the parking lots. Look at all the guns. There is a specific vibe there. There is a particular flavor or people there, that are all over the country and all over the country they have this same flavor.

Its a very masculine flavor. Not very intellectual, not very touchy feely, pretty conservative. You know the type I am talking about.

I see them surviving. I see them surviving because they are a stable rather than chaotic system they way I look at them.

Buddhism, Tigers, Michael Moore etc.

Ok, so, I had a dream that I was a tiger and so was the Dalai Lama, and so was Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Kind of in the "Animal Farm Sense" you know? Like the book by George Orwell. "All animals are equal but some are more equal than others?" 10 times out of 10 the pigs and the dogs are going to exercise power over say, the horses.

So I have this Spirit Animal, aspect, where in dreams I am a tiger or a lion. Tigers and Lions are remarkably simmilar, the difference being lions are more social, wheras tigers are loners. Lions are social in the sense of forming coalitions for the sake of various violent activities like hunting and fighting. So they are really not so social as gregarious herd animals like zebras, or wildebeest.

So in the natural scheme of things, big predators like lions and tigers prey on the herd animals. So to a herd animal, lions and tigers are the enemy.

That doesn't however imply that all tigers are friends with each other. Its actually the reverse. All tigers are enemies. Recent studdies have shown that lions actually team up mainly for protection against other lions and actually not to increase hunting success.

So this is my totem. Everyone has a different totem, but on the surface we all look alike. Except, I think Tigers can recognze each other, maybe others can recognize tigers too. Everyone is a bit psychic after all.

But I definately think tigers can reconize each other. Its a negative reaction. Its not like "Hey, you are a Tiger just like me, cool!" No. Its more, like "Fuck, this person is dangerous."

There is some projection that goes on. But where do these qualities come from that we project onto others? They come from within, so obviously they are qualities we have.

So let me add another dynamic here. We aren't literally, wild animals living on the Serengeti or in the jungle. We are people, but in a sense we are wild animals hunting and eating each other. There is also kind of a sexual aspect, like BDSM, which stands for "Bondage Discipline, Sadism and Masochism." So some people are antelopes and actually want to be preyed on by people who are lions/tigers. It gets them off.

So in a way tigers can get along a lot better with herd people than with each other. Two male or two female tigers will always fight. Lions, can co-operate for the purpose of preying on others. But lions in the outgroup are enemies of lions in their respective in group.

So the point is Tibetan Lamas, are human lions/tigers. They are predators. All Aristocrats are savages. That's what Aristocracy is. Its Brutal Barbarians taking over and organizing weaker people to aggrandize themselves. Its organizing people below you into a machine that concentrates power and siphons wealth to your social class at the top.

So in the history of Tibet you have all these factions of Lamas, fighting and assasinating each other. That's just like prides of lions fighting over territory.

I can see all this for what it is because I am a lion too. I am not a herd animal that wants to get off by being abused, while tricking myself into thinking something else is going on. That's not my thing.

But I haven't always been clear on who I am. Its taken a while for me to acknowledge these messages from my unconscious that I am a predator. Mostly I have just projected this predator aspect onto others in authority. The thing about projection though, that many people seem to miss, is that its often accurate, even though it eventually points back to yourself.

Its not like I am wrong, about these Gurus being human predators. I am right. Its just that I know because I am one myself. Which brings me to my next point.

The Tibetans have this institution of Tulku Which, is the idea that lamas keep reincarnating over and over again. They could be born as a peasant and then some other Lamas will "recognize" them and raise them to be a Lama.

So lets just say this is true and not bullshit, which of course is dubious because is an Arisocrat living in luxury really a Boddhistava? It would appear to be preposterous, but maybe the reincarnation aspect is true.

So concievably, you could have a kid, who was an Aristocrat in a former life, a real tyrant, getting born into a peasant family. So what if these bickering lamas, never found the kid? What if for political reasons, they picked this other kid and made him a lama?

So you would have this Lama growing up as a peasant. What would he be like? If he had his past life memories even partially intact, giving him a sense of identity that was incongrous with his humble state, I would think he would be pretty pissed off. He would also begin to identify with his fellow peasants, being one himself now, and he would really resent their treatement at the hands of their overlords.

So, He'd probably become a subversive, maybe even a revolutionary champion of the "comon man" instead of a predator of the common man, which he would be had he been born into a higher station in life.

But deep down he would be a predator. And the fact that he wants to "fight" for the common people would reval his predatory nature. Because really, wild herd animals don't hunt their predators down. Domestic herd animals even revere and submit to their human predators. The most they will do is complain of their treatement, if it becomes especially harsh and degrading. That's the essence of a peasant. They are sychophants to authority figures.

I see these qualities in my self and as I recently watched Michael Moore's "Roger and me" I saw them in him as well. He felt like a misfit growing up, among factory workers, saw that occupation as beneath him from a young age, yet made a career out of attacking the factory owning Oligarchs. He's smug, perhaps even narcissistic, as he stars in his own movie hunting down, mega rich CEO Roger Smith, presumabley to confront him about laying off 30,000 factory workers.

He seems to relish barging in on Rich Country Clubbers and asking them embarassing questions. How altruistic are his motives really? Does he just like to attack and ridicule people in power? A lot of it is pretty funny, but he does have that edge. He no doubt likes the adrenaline rush he gets from it, and the(self)righteous indignation.

And here is another thing I find about Muckraking journalism and Conspiracy theories: Most people don't give a shit. How do you really help the type of person that would work at a factory owned by a bunch of rich Oligarchs and bank your whole future on the dubious premise that these people will take care of you?

If its your lot in life to be a peasant, maybe you should just except it in the hope that things will be better for you in the next life.

There are two types of people that understand conspiracies. There are people expressing moral outrage that they exist, and the other type are the conspirators themselves. There is really only one type. People that can figure them out.

If you can see through propoganda, you have the potential to be a propagandist yourself.

Wise Words

Monica Pignotti (1989) then opined, after spending half a decade in Scientology:

I know that no one is going to give me the answers to life. I now realize that I have a mind that is fully capable of guiding me through the decisions I make in life and I will never put anyone or anything above what I know and feel. I now know the techniques that are [allegedly] used to control people’s minds and that people exist in this world that have no compunction about using these techniques to manipulate people.... My life and my mind are now my own and I will never give them up again.

from Stripping the Gurus

No such thing as enlightenment

What I mean is, There could be such a thing, in the sense that perhaps "enlightenment" could be described as the cause of people being kind to each other and making wise decisions. So in that case it might be rare, but its not that rare.

Its definately not something you can buy. But there sure are enough people selling it. Its the perfect con really. Lots of people want it. You can't really describe what it is, supposedly, because its beyond words. So how do you get it? You make yourself subservient to one of these gurus, do whatever they ask of you, even if they ask you to give up your ass, and they will tell you when you have gotten there. Its not up to you apparently. Only they know.

So imagine you are the Guru. You have something to sell, and the way people buy it is by paying you for them to be allowed the privelege of worshipping you. Pretty good deal, eh? Yeah, if you are a psychopath.

I think what happens though, is the way this stuff gets passed on, is that One con artist recognizes another and teaches him the con. That's the foundation of these "lineages."

People just keep sucking it up. Even after these Gurus get exposed. They don't want to let go of their image that these people were enlightened beings. You're Guru died of cerrosis. He had alcaholic dimentia before he died and a serious cocaine habit. He sexually assaulted people.

"Well, that's just crazy wisdom! You can't judge his actions unless you have his mind.

Crop circle Phenomena goes mainstream

More than meets the Eye

repeating patterns

We could all be San Bushmen, right now. In a way we once were according to analysis of our MtDNA. I once saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" where he ate an Ostrich egg with some Bushmen prepared in the traditional way.

I'm pretty sure it tasted like shit. It had sand and bits of ash in it. He said as much but was careful to say he had respect for their traditional way of life and so forth, which I do too.

The fact remains though, that these people are not Epicurians. You aren't going to find many of the "finer things in life" like Literature, Fine wine, gourmet food, High culture, among the Bushmen.

So where do all these things come from?

It comes from the development of an Aristocracy through the development of intensve Agriculture. Basically feudalism.

There is no doubt in my mind that a cultured Feudal lord lived a better life than a bushman and that a peasant lived a far worse one.

Sure a Bushman owns little, but he has the freedom to do as he pleases. He is a free man living with dignity, beholden to no one. He eats a healthier more diverse diet then the gruel that was peasant fare. Weston A Price proved that hunter gatheres the world over enjoyed superor health from their varied diets than the western starch based diet.

So I am sure that was even moreso, in midieval Europe. But the point I am trying to make here is that the majority of people took a step down from how they lived as hunter gatherers in order for an elite to make advances that eventually filtered down to a broader segment of mankind.

The Old regime of Tibet seems to have been a form of the Midieval Period of Europe, frozen in time. The many slaved away in lives of hunger, toil and deradation so that a privelidged few could live lifes of high culture gorgeously attired in Saffron robes playing with Gold trinkets raping the woman and young boys. See Buddhism is Corrupt

They Monopolized the Literacy and knowledge and trade with outside world.

They obviously had some kernel of Knowledge. This is What Spiritually curious Westerners have been all excited about learning.

But there have been lots of statges of development beyond fudealism that happened outside of Tibet prior to the 1950's such as Human rights, democracy, industrialization, that have brought freedom and prosperity to porportionately greater numbers of people.

There is an Hegelian Dialetic with this stuff, with relative freedom vs. relative servitude going back and forth through history. In many ways Advanced Corporate capitalism resembles Fuedalism. On a Global scale it, perhaps be argued that the billions of people subsisting on less than a dollar a day are serfs to powerful Wealthy Interests in the West. The World Bank and the IMF emplot debt slavery to create uneven trade balances and siphon wealth from the third world.

Still I think on balance there is progress.

I no longer have doubts about Buddhism

I'm convinced its Bullshit.

These two paragraphs from the Michael Parenti article "The Myth of Tibet say it all"

In 1959, Anna Louise Strong visited an exhibition of torture equipment that had been used by the Tibetan overlords. There were handcuffs of all sizes, including small ones for children, and instruments for cutting off noses and ears, gouging out eyes, breaking off hands, and hamstringing legs. There were hot brands, whips, and special implements for disemboweling. The exhibition presented photographs and testimonies of victims who had been blinded or crippled or suffered amputations for thievery. There was the shepherd whose master owed him a reimbursement in yuan and wheat but refused to pay. So he took one of the master’s cows; for this he had his hands severed. Another herdsman, who opposed having his wife taken from him by his lord, had his hands broken off. There were pictures of Communist activists with noses and upper lips cut off, and a woman who was raped and then had her nose sliced away.23

Earlier visitors to Tibet commented on the theocratic despotism. In 1895, an Englishman, Dr. A. L. Waddell, wrote that the populace was under the “intolerable tyranny of monks” and the devil superstitions they had fashioned to terrorize the people. In 1904 Perceval Landon described the Dalai Lama’s rule as “an engine of oppression.” At about that time, another English traveler, Captain W.F.T. O’Connor, observed that “the great landowners and the priests… exercise each in their own dominion a despotic power from which there is no appeal,” while the people are “oppressed by the most monstrous growth of monasticism and priest-craft.” Tibetan rulers “invented degrading legends and stimulated a spirit of superstition” among the common people. In 1937, another visitor, Spencer Chapman, wrote, “The Lamaist monk does not spend his time in ministering to the people or educating them. . . . The beggar beside the road is nothing to the monk. Knowledge is the jealously guarded prerogative of the monasteries and is used to increase their influence and wealth.”24 As much as we might wish otherwise, feudal theocratic Tibet was a far cry from the romanticized Shangri La so enthusiastically nurtured by Buddhism’s western proselytes.

Everything the Dalai Lama has learned about freedom, democracy, social activism, he learned since exile (while on a CIA payroll I might add) from the same sources availabe to everyone else. There is no wisdom inherent in Tibetan Buddhism of a program to make the World a better place. Had there been ostensily, they would have employed it to make Tibet a better place.

I dentity Theft

Because I'm tired of maturity, airport insecurity
Runnin' from the Thought Police, fightin' with the go-betweens
Hold up, let me steal a breath
'Cause we're dealin' with identity theft

(You need an education)
I don't see why I got to
(You need a good degree)
As to assimilate

So little time, so much to be bored by
If no one trod along Harvard lawn, no one'd make a nuclear bomb
They don't teach you how to care, empathisin' if you dare
Euthanize your sense of fair play, better to obey

No child is free, oh, why, it's queasy to see
Is that an elementary or a penitentiary

Huh, geez, get off my back
Beat it, take it to town, man
Idiots go to college to get dumbed down

Ooh, it leaves you bereft
Ooh, identity theft
I may be wrong, I don't know why
I may be wrong, but I'll try

Because I'm sick of the insanity, watchin' horny manatee
Feelin' like a libertine, dealin' with the death machine
Hold 'em up, it's a street arrest
And we're dealin' with identity theft

(You need a publication)
I don't see why I got to
(You need a press release)
As to assimilate

Journo-fascist profiteers, pornotastic pioneers
Bombobastic puppeteers, get away from me
How can you write what we read, that ain't my reality
You disabuse humanity, humility and fealty

Oh, you guess you got an edge
Hiding your head from the feds
Puttin' down the little veg
(Ignorance is a right, not a privilege)

I'm finished, done, and had it
And while you fucks are at it
As far as I'm concerned, Pluto's still a planet

Ooh, you die a quick death
Ooh, identity theft
I may be wrong, I don't know why
I may be wrong, but I'll try

Because I'm sick of all the sabotage, where's my female entourage
Lookin' for some kind of closure, all I'm findin' is Ray Bolger
Hold up, hell yeah, I'll confess
'Cause we're dealin' with identity theft

(You need an occupation)
I don't see why I got to
(You need a boss to please)
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, you're late

Yakety yak, don't look back, Nellie, you're a heart attack
Murder, murder, on the wall, who's the butchest one of all
(Where'd you get that vegan dress, a flea market)
Oops, I forgot, you design for Target
Shun violence and religion, don't ever play with nuns

But I punched a man on Broadway just to watch him cry
Every guy I went to try said I fight him but I can't think why

Bent unhinged and singed
I cringe to watch the main event
But in the end, there's no success like revenge

Ooh, it leaves you bereft
Ooh, identity theft
I may be wrong, I don't know why
I may be wrong, but I'll try

Because I'm tired of hypocrisy, is it them or is it me
If Jesus Christ is left in ruin, Satan, buddy, how you doin'
Hold 'em up, it's a street arrest
And we're dealin' with identity theft

Because I'm tired of being sweet and nice
Fuck you once and fuck you twice
Show your passport, get that stamp
Funny like a nazi camp
Hold 'em up, hell yeah, I'll confess
'Cause we're dealin with identity theft



All this info is available on the internet. Its not opinion. its FACT. If you go up high enough into the Buddhist Hierarchy it all comes down to raping little girls. That's what it ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO with these religious hierarchies. That is what TANTRA is. Converting eroticism into POWER. Its RAPE plain and simple.

These people are all vampires. They feed on your SOUL ENERGY. Have you taken vows? If not, seriously, DON'T DO IT. Its the Vampires bite. It will create a psychic link between you and these vampires.

Don't take my word for it. Research it your self:

The raping of little girls by Tibetan Lamas:

“In the rite of ‘virgin-worship’ (kumari-puja)”, writes Benjamin Walker, “a girl is selected and trained for initiation, and innocent of her impending fate is brought before the altar and worshipped in the nude, and then deflowered by a guru or chela” (Walker, 1982, p. 72). It was not just the Hindu tantrics who practiced rituals with a kumari, but also the Tibetans, in any case the Grand Abbot of the Sakyapa Sect, even though he was married.

On a numerological basis twelve- or sixteen-year-old girls are preferred. Only when none can be found does Tsongkhapa recommend the use of a twenty-year-old. There is also a table of correspondences between the various ages and the elements and senses: an 11-year-old represents the air, a 12-year-old fire, a 13-year-old water, a 14-year-old earth, a15-year-old sound, a 16-year-old the sense of touch, a 17-year-old taste, an 18-year-old shape or form, and a 20-year-old the sense of smell (Naropa, 1994, p. 189).

How 1950's Tibet was a Corrupt Mideival Oligarchy, with serfs slavery, torture, dispicable poverty and servitude etc. :

Drepung monastery was one of the biggest landowners in the world, with its 185 manors, 25,000 serfs, 300 great pastures, and 16,000 herdsmen. The wealth of the monasteries rested in the hands of small numbers of high-ranking lamas. Most ordinary monks lived modestly and had no direct access to great wealth. The Dalai Lama himself “lived richly in the 1000-room, 14-story Potala Palace.” 11

Secular leaders also did well. A notable example was the commander-in-chief of the Tibetan army, a member of the Dalai Lama’s lay Cabinet, who owned 4,000 square kilometers of land and 3,500 serfs. 12 Old Tibet has been misrepresented by some Western admirers as “a nation that required no police force because its people voluntarily observed the laws of karma.” 13 In fact. it had a professional army, albeit a small one, that served mainly as a gendarmerie for the landlords to keep order, protect their property, and hunt down runaway serfs.

Young Tibetan boys were regularly taken from their peasant families and brought into the monasteries to be trained as monks. Once there, they were bonded for life. Tashì-Tsering, a monk, reports that it was common for peasant children to be sexually mistreated in the monasteries. He himself was a victim of repeated rape, beginning at age nine. 14 The monastic estates also conscripted children for lifelong servitude as domestics, dance performers, and soldiers.

In old Tibet there were small numbers of farmers who subsisted as a kind of free peasantry, and perhaps an additional 10,000 people who composed the “middle-class” families of merchants, shopkeepers, and small traders. Thousands of others were beggars. There also were slaves, usually domestic servants, who owned nothing. Their offspring were born into slavery. 15 The majority of the rural population were serfs. Treated little better than slaves, the serfs went without schooling or medical care, They were under a lifetime bond to work the lord's land--or the monastery’s land--without pay, to repair the lord's houses, transport his crops, and collect his firewood. They were also expected to provide carrying animals and transportation on demand.16 Their masters told them what crops to grow and what animals to raise. They could not get married without the consent of their lord or lama. And they might easily be separated from their families should their owners lease them out to work in a distant location. 17

But Hell, I just started with Wikipedia:

shambala buddhism

Thats where the trail started that led to all the corruption at the top. The alcaholic womanizng Lama Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, with the $40,000 a year coke habit and his HIV positive successor who continued to have sex with his male desciples even after knowing he was HIV positive because he felt that a Guru is without sin and the victims only got AIDS due to bad Karma and their part.

NONE of this is OPINION.

This takes nothing away from meditating and Spiritual practice. in fact that's the point, we can do all this stuff without the 'help" of these SPIRITUAL VAMPIRES.
