One of the persons being abused said, »It was abuse of trust really, because I was a very sincere, perhaps naïve young man wanting to practise Buddhism.« One man said he was under the legal age of consent for homosexual sex at the time.
While some followers believed that the leader of the group made a sacrifice in engaging with his students in a sexual relationship, Elie Godsi, a clinical psychologist who has been an expert witness on a number of high-profile abuse cases, said: »This is all about the sexual gratification of a person in a position of authority or power within the group.«« documentary in which Jo Taylor examines allegations of historic abuse at the Padmaloka Buddhist Retreat Centre (Triratna Retreats For Men) (first 10 minutes).
Imagine a whole lifetime of ethics, morality, compassion. In changing people’s lives, from self-ingratiating activities that bring harm and unhappiness to themselves and the ones they love, to benefit for themselves, and others and everyone. Some examples of the power of speech of a Buddha, which you can get into more detail in the Lamrim, is when they speak, although they speak one subject, one word, whatever your level of intelligence, it will penetrate your mind and it will hit you.
And imagine, the altruistic side forget it, just one day of discipline, of cutting out our delusions and illusions, one day of that. Imagine three days of that, imagine four days, one week, one year, one month. Not lying will, in short, will create a type of speech that when you talk, people will listen. Not only a good speaker – a good speaker is not enough – but a type of speech that transforms people’s minds, transforms people’s lives, transforms people’s inertia, people’s delusions and illusions, and the type of speech that motivates them from doing self-cherishing acts that bring them to more sufferings, to acts that bring them to happiness. It is a type of speech that has the power of truth and altruism from lifetimes, or a life of practices, and a lifetime after lifetime, that when this person speaks, it profoundly moves another person. So that type of speech becomes very very very powerful. Imagine a person with good motivation, good intention, and they speak to benefit others, and they use their speech, their tongue, their teeth, their mouth, their vocal cords, they use their speech in what?
Anyone who recites these holy words can tap into their source and connect with sacred energy that helps to transform our minds. Yes I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait, I just can’t wait… Now, I’m going to hit on two main reasons, on a profound level, that we do mantras and I’m going to hit on a few general meanings that we do mantras. That is the power of speech of an enlightened being or an advanced being, or a Buddha.
Tsem Rinpoche Or view the video on the server at: Words Of Power.mp4 There was a book called by John Blofeld when I read when I was like, 9 or 10 and boy, I memorized every mantra in there. Very famous Sinologist, he was a very great scholar in China and China arts, and a very great devotee of Guan Yin and Tara. He just like, Tara, Tara, Tara, that’s all he talked about. In any case, that is why in the future we have to have a Tara Mystical Treasures. General meanings…no, general purposes that we do mantras that will help us so you can condense this writing into a short one, you can also make it a long one because it will be information for you. One day, if someone tells us, “No meat, you’re gonna be vegetarian for one day”, you’re like, “Ughhh”. She’ll go to the Yoshinoya beef stands and moon them. So when they speak, it isn’t just nice words to pick up a pretty girl.
One good thing in that context is that at least FWBO/Triratna is beginning to acknowledge the power and sexual abuse and is talking about initiating steps to prevent future abuse.
I read some reports in the past from men being abused by Sangharakshita and responses by FWBO/Triratna members.
And that whole day is filled with light and love, compassion, clairvoyance, skills, great planning for others, skillful speech, skillful action and not self-cherishing mind. It may be cute for a puppy to fight for his food and fight for a bone, but it is not cute for a person to fight other people for their money. And using the speech not to get money, sex, rock ‘n roll, drugs, fun and increase attachments, but using the speech to increase people’s happiness, increase people’s mind, increase peace, increase love, increase altruism. Even people who have excellent motivation, but they do not speak well or correctly, they can create wars.
Also Namdrol la you mentioned these things are going to be published. I don't know the source, probably Namdrol knows, but I think you should understand that it could be anything that make a sudden sound could be used.
I heard Lama's using clapping their hands, slapping the table and many other sounds.
Then, NNR make the Song of the Vajra into a Semzin too. I'm curious about the source of the semzin and direct introduction of these things.
Since I don't yet read Tibetan I can't do any research into the tantras themselves.
