The Guardian published a story today: Controversial monk and Dalai Lama aide replaced amid corruption accusations.
The story mentions NXIVM and Lama Tenzin’s ‘friend’ Sara Bronfman.
[Lama Tenzin] built a network of wealthy supporters, including … the Seagram heiress Sara Bronfman.
Some critics also blamed Dhonden for organising an event in Albany in 2009 hosted by Nxivm, a controversial self-help organisation that has been compared to a cult, a description adherents reject. The event was initially cancelled after an outcry but then went ahead, giving a misleading impression that the Dalai Lama endorsed Nxivm, according to Dhonden’s detractors.
Leading Nxivm adherents include Sara Bronfman, a wealthy heiress with a longstanding interest in Buddhism whom Dhonden has befriended, according to several sources.
The word “befriended’ is an understatement. According to multiple sources, Sara and Lama Tenzin were lovers even though monks are prohibited from having sexual relations.
