Author: Dalai Lama reportedly aware, secretly supported lamas’ Tantric sex cult practices

The following is the opinion of author, Christine Chandler. She wrote ‘Enthralled,’ a book about the alleged secret Tantric sex practices of Tibetan Buddhist ‘monks.’ The writer’s views are her own.
NXIVM is a cult that brands women on their pubic region as a mark of slavery to its leader, Keith Raniere. Frank Report/Artvoice broke the story of their branding, which subsequently became worldwide news.
In 2009, the Dalai Lama came to Albany NY, where Raniere operated NXIVM, to give a speech. He was hosted by Raniere and two followers, Clare and Sara Bronfman, heiresses of the Seagram Liquor fortune. There was a great deal of controversy about the Dalai Lama’s visit. He was accused of supporting a cult.  Raniere, however, used the Dalai Lama’s visit as a de facto endorsement of NXIVM. The Dalai Lama also wrote a preface to one of Raniere’s books, The Sphinx & Thelxiepeia.
As part of our reporting on NXIVM, Frank Report/Artvoice discovered that one of the Dalai Lama’s emissaries, Lama Tenzin Dhonden, allegedly had an affair with Sara Bronfman. This caused a scandal for Tenzin since he was publicly posing as a monk.
By Christine A. Chandler, M.A., C.A.G.S.

Artvoice recently reported on the Dalai Lama and his corrupt monk, Lama Tenzin Dhonden’s involvement with NXIVM.

This was not a fluke or an aberration, because what lies beneath a cult like NXIVM,  is the cult of Tantra that the Dalai Lama and his sexually abusive monks have been importing into our country since the days of Trungpa Rinpoche:  Tibetan Buddhism is not Buddhism as it pretends,  it is a thousand year old cult of sexual abuse that uses women for their Tantric practices. That is why the Dalai Lama was willing to take money from Keith Raniere’s group:
Here is the news, reported all over Europe, about the favorite lama of the Dalai lama,  Lama Sogyal of Lakar, that is being purposely repressed in the U.S.
The Dalai Lama and his vast organization, (it is not true that these lamas operate independently; they are all under the Dalai Lama umbrella now) are trying to do damage control on many fronts, keeping this news from the public that reveals that this is not a rogue lama, but they are all corrupt, and are practicing sexual Tantra.  That is why Keith knew he could get the Dalai Lama to come to approve of his group.
Hollywood, journalists, certain parts of academia, have been protecting this cult of the lamas, some of them becoming practitioners, vowing to keep their secrets.  Now that Lama Sogyal has been outed and is hiding somewhere in Thailand with his harem,  the women, just like those enablers of the cult of NXIVM (sexual abuse organizations always have female enablers)  and the other corrupted Lamas, are infiltrating into many institutions to create chaos and havoc with their Tantra.  What Keith Raniere is practicing is Tantra that nails all female energy down in a misogynistic paradigm, that these Dalai Lamas and the other Lama sects all practice, while putting on their grand theatre and using traditional Mahayana Buddhism, and humble monk personas to fool people in the West.  The Dalai Lama’s Tibetan Buddhism has been the biggest hoax on the Western world, and is here to create havoc and chaos, immorality and confusion in all our western institutions.
How do I know?  Because I was a western Tibetan Buddhist, who escaped their net of thought-control inside their sanghas.  Few do.  It is how they kept their own country in poverty and misery for the last  1000 years, and are now China’s soft power to destroy the fabric of our country. Theirs is a civilization jihad  that operates by stealth,  and comes with a smiling face and peaceful, happy rhetoric when they were, in fact, the religion of the wrathful  Khans.  That  history is purposely repressed.
Someone sent me your material when it was reporting about the Dalai Lama and I thought that you might want to know what Lies Beneath their masks:
My Blog:
Thought you might be interested that the Dalai Lama’s behavior and support of NXIVM was not a simple mistake. Anything that ‘nails all female energy down” is what the Dalai Lama would be behind and support, just as he supported this Lama Sogyal for the last 40 years, who kept harems of Western women, whom he beat and treated like slaves:

  • After reading about the lamas’ Tantric sex cult, this old joke-post starts to sound plausible:

    “My sources say the real reason D. Lama came to Albany was for a chance to meet Kristin Kreuk.”

  • Very informative, thank you! And thank you for the link to Mick Brown’s work, every word is a must-read, as is all his work on the topic. The parallels between Sogyal Rinpoche and Keith Raniere are stunning.

    In 1996, thanks to the NYS AG, Raniere needed a new direction (“Buyline, Inc., Keith Raniere, Pamela Cafritz and Karen Unterreiner are permanently enjoined from promoting, offering or granting participation in a chain distributor scheme in the State of New York in violation of GBL § 359-fff” discussed here: ). By the mid-1990s Rinpoche had a bestseller and was written up everywhere.

    Raniere’s word salads are “rational” spins of Rinpoche’s words and bring him all the same wealth, power, and sex. L. Ron Hubbard (“If you want to get rich, you start a religion”) would be impressed!

  • I’m sorry to say it, but the Dalai appears to be a fraud. That’s why he accepted money from the Aum Cult of Japan. That’s why he accepted money from NXIVM. I don’t buy the notion that the Dalai is ignorant when it comes to such activities.

    The problem with asceticism when it comes to the sexual desire is that it is very difficult to achieve. The only thing – and I mean the ONLY thing – that could motivate an individual to voluntarily subjugate it is true and sincere devotion to God. This is not to say that subjugating such a desire makes one more spiritual or having a sex drive makes one less spiritual. It is a “in the nature of things” desire for the vast majority of mankind and is one of the reasons why marriage exists. I think it is just good judgement to be skeptical of people who are often “in the news” ascetics because those who are true among them are aware that even the tinge of fame is something that can be corrupting and so they have a strong distaste for it. They are intellectual, moral, and spiritual, and their motivation is only to please the Absolute.

    These fake “gurus” are among the worst of people because they are supposed to be exemplars, i.e., representations of the best of humanity. Instead they use their power and status to defraud the people while they engage in hypocrisy behind the scenes.

    “And keep yourself patiently with those who call on their Lord morning and afternoon, seeking His Face; and let not your eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp and glitter of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our Remembrance, who follows his own lusts, and whose affair has been lost.”

      • There was nothing mentioned about the practice of Islam in the above so I don’t know what you’re referring to. Regardless, Islam doesn’t practice anything. Islam is a set of beliefs and its people practice it. Since Islam has no clergy, or no single authority, and it has various different sects – even more sects than Christianity and Judaism – this means its people practice it in different ways, some more in line with the majority and more correctly than others based on their understanding from its main sources, the Qur’an (not in dispute) and its classical Arabic language, and what others deem authentic (a matter of debate) from its secondary sources.

  • Keith is a simulacrum of a certain Tibetan.

    Vajrayana Buddhism was no easy path. In order to slip the shackles of the ego, a student needed to give total obedience to the teacher, no matter how unreasonable or irrational the teacher’s behaviour might seem. “Crazy Wisdom” was the name given to this form of instruction, where a guru could employ all sorts of outlandish methods to challenge a student’s ego.

  • Lama Tenzin is a predator and Sara Bronfman was served up to him like fresh meat by Keith, Nancy, and Clare while her so called BFF Alex Betancourt watched and said nothing. It’s despicable. In the three years leading up to meeting Lama T. Sara had been sexually abused and discarded by Keith and psychologically beaten down by him and Clare, as well as being defrauded of $35 million, She was desperate for redemption (because she blamed herself for all) and easy pickings for Lama T. When rumor of their affair came out on the Saratoga in Decline Lama T. dumped her hard in 2010. No one in NXIVM cared one iota as the leadership surrounds Sara and are conscienceless liars who will go to any length to use and abuse her and others to get what Keith wants. Unfortunately for Sara, she was so lost in the cycle of abuse, like most women in her situation she couldn’t or wouldn’t see it. The Bronfman’s have been accused of a lot of evil things in the media and this blog, make no mistake, it’s all Clare.

    Sara, hopefully you can find happiness in your hotel business with Basit and your life in Europe. Don’t let these people abuse you anymore and crush your dreams.
