Swami’s Pal- Lama Wangdu Calls on Evil Ghosts; Alleged to Steal Virginity – Must Be First

Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche was born in Tibet, near the Mt. Everest region, in 1936. He began studying with his guru, Naptra Rinpoche, at age 8.

After years of practice, his guru sent him on a retreat where he practiced Chod at 108 cremation grounds. Chod is a tantric practice performed on cremation grounds. With a drum, bell, and thighbone trumpet, the practitioner tries to summon evil ghosts. He offers them a feast of his own body. 

Since most ghosts do not have teeth, feeding them with one’s flesh is difficult.

When the Chinese closed the Tibetan border in 1959, Wangdu settled in the Kathmandu Valley, in a Tibetan refugee camp in Jawalakehl. He was a Nyingma practitioner.

The Nyingma practitioner tries to see ghosts, gods and goddesses. Some have expressed concern that ghosts have deceived many Nyingmas by pretending to be gods. 

Besides his guru, and various ghosts and possibly gods and goddesses, Rinpoche received “transmissions” from human lamas. These include men who use titles before their names. They include: 

His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama

His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche

His Eminence Urgyen Tulku

His Eminence Chatral Rinpoche

The Extremely Venerable Trulshik Rinpoche

Rinpoche also studied the Longchen Nyingthig teachings. This consists of “mind-mandated transmission.” In it, the guru controls the mind of his disciple and plants thoughts there for the present and future. 

Comparisons are odious, of course. But the guru implanting thoughts in the disciple is like the Vulcan mind meld and just as true.

Under this mind control of the guru, at least one practitioner claimed to fly through the sky, riding a white lion. 

Swami Chetanananda and Lama Wangdu

In 1997, Swami Chetanananda met Wangdu during a trip to Nepal. They both described their first encounter as the meeting of two currents. 

And one feather.

They recognized the value of promoting the authenticity of each other’s work. Since then, they have spent extensive time together, sharing knowledge, experiences, and women.

In August 1999, Rinpoche visited the United States, traveling to Bloomington, Indiana. He attended the Kalachakra initiation.

This 12-day ceremony allows people to donate money and see a geometric symbol made of sand.

Usually, only ashram workers are seen making the sand mandalas. But 722 invisible gods and goddesses participate. Much like the cloth on the loom of the weavers in the Emperor’s New Clothes, only those who are wise, like the Swami and Wangdu, can see the gods and goddesses.

After the laborers finish making their intricate mandalas, they put the sand into urns and dump it in a nearby body of water.  As they dump the sand out, they chant and say prayers. All who donated time or money experience the perfect peace of timelessness.

After this lucrative event, Wangdu went to The Movement Center in Portland. 

He spent several months each year in Portland. During his visits, he got access to The Movement Center’s students. He gave teachings and initiation, and allowed students to offer free labor for their spiritual welfare.

As we shall learn in a later post, Wangdu offered special teachings to young female students.

In March 2003, the Dalai Lama asked Wangdu to establish a monastery in Kathmandu. The monastery, Pal Gyi Dingri Langkor Jangsem Kunga Ling, was consecrated in 2004. 

Swami Chetanananda was among those designated as a VIP in attendance. 

In March 2003, the Dalai Lama asked Wangdu to establish a monastery in Kathmandu. The Pal Gyi Dingri Langkor Jangsem Kunga Ling Monastery opened in 2004.

Swami Chetanananda was among those designated as a VIP in attendance.

In 2018, Wangdu retired as abbot of the monastery. He continues to serve as a guru for people in Nepal and the United States. Wangdu’s autobiography is One Hundred Thousand Rays of the Sun.


The following is not found in his autobiography.

Cindy Travis had this to say about Swami Chetanananda, who, in turn, had something to say about Wangdu.

What the good Swami had to say was Lama Wangdu must be first. He has to introduce his daughters and granddaughters to sex.


I remember being invited to Swami Chetanananda’s apartment for an “energy treatment.”
During the craniosacral treatment, he informed me that “Mr. Wangdu” had initiated ALL of his daughters and granddaughters into sex.
He said, “it was normal in other cultures for the father or grandfather to be the first sexual experience for most girls.” And he knew that my own father had sexually abused me.
I got the hell out of there shortly after. Fuck you, Michael! You don’t fool me anymore! Evil incarnate!! With a spectacular CON JOB!

Of course, Chetanananda lies. He might have made this story up to have sex with Cindy. But Wandu and Chet are too alike to discount the beast’s claims.

His Eminence Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche plays the thighbone trumpet to call wicked ghosts.

He uses his magical skin flute to end the virginity of his offspring. And others too.

Come one and all and learn from the holy man. Bow and grovel at his feet. Surrender and debase yourself for his crazy wisdom.

The feather of the birds, Shoemaker and Wangdu, are identical. Fat, rich and greedy, without control of their senses. Crazy wisdom? It is unbridled, reckless disregard for other human beings.

In the name of wisdom, they deceive. They will ignore your health. They will ignore your future, your hopes your aspirations. They will always be aware of their own needs.

With their teachings, they will enslave you. With their selfishness, they will order your life.  With their wickedness, they will take over your life.

To gain wealth and satisfaction, they will mislead you. Every excuse for disaster is crazy wisdom, and you failed.

It is the road to hell for those who follow, and for those who offer it, it is the road to wealth, sex, and adulation.

It is their living. You are their carrion prey. It is a delicacy of evil.

  • I don’t know anything about the swami.. But the moron who wrote clearly has no comprehension of Buddhism, let alone any kindergarten knowledge of Vajrayana….

    I am always suspicious of articles that are completely based upon accusations without providing any evidence to support their damnation… so, I have to take this as mostly BS regarding Lama Wangdu

    • I’m the moron who wrote it. If you want to call spirits in a cremation ground, more power to you. But I think you will like the next article about Wangdu even less.

  • I was also refeared to Wangdo ( in Nepal), by a Tibetan in Denmark. My impression of…was horrifying. Tibetan Buddhism. All of it is a cult.

  • Hey Ginzo!

    Stop posting articles about this stupid lowlife goddamn Tsinker and start posting what’s important, *PATRIOT GOD’S ARTCILES*!!!!!!

    Get moving!


  • According to Buddha there are only holy places and no holy people, only holy moments, only moments of wisdom.

  • https://www.amazon.com/Fallout-Recovering-Abuse-Tibetan-Buddhism-ebook/dp/B07SBJ8J4B/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

    When eight students wrote a letter accusing Sogyal Rinpoche, author of the best-selling Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, of decades of physical, emotional and sexual abuse, Tahlia Newland set up an online support group for abuse victims and students of his Tibetan Buddhist community, Rigpa. Appalled by the lack of ethics, the group undertook a journey of discovery during which they uncovered the depth of the trauma suffered by victims, and the fundamentalism and cult behaviour at the heart of Rigpa. They learned about destructive cults, trauma and recovery, narcissistic abuse, co-dependency, institutional betrayal, and the methods of mind control used by Rigpa, who had covered up and enabled the abuse for decades.

    Fallout, Tahlia’s memoir of this time, reveals the consequences of spiritual abuse for an ordinary member of an abusive, high-demand religious group and the psychological processing required for healing and cult recovery. Fallout is a cautionary tale for students and potential students of any guru-centred spiritual group. For Buddhist teachers and scholars, it also provides valuable insight into areas of the teachings which can easily be misunderstood and misused. For psychotherapists and counsellors, it’s an important case study for anyone working with cult survivors, particularly in a Buddhist context.


    • “One who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities”

      Mystical belief systems are poison to rational thought. Ethics is to be found in Humanism, not supernatural fairy tales spun millennia ago by our bronze-age ancestors who believed in gods, devils and spirits out of ignorance.

      So I applaud everything you write except this:
      “For Buddhist teachers and scholars, it also provides valuable insight into areas of the teachings which can easily be misunderstood and misused.”

      It’s all fantasy, none of it is true. Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Taoism, Mormonism, all of it. There is no misunderstanding it or misusing it because it’s all made-up bullshit. NONE OF IT IS REAL.

      It’s fun to read about, this religion stuff. It’s interesting to read about other cultures and other times.

      But anyone who looks to this ancient make-believe as a template for living his life today best look out & grow the fuck up.

      It’s 2022. Time to stop believing in mystical nonsense.

  • Imagine a religion that believes in ghosts! Hinduism sure is ridiculous.

    As a Catholic kid I was instructed how to pray to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

    These days I think the Holy Trinity is called the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. What are spirits? Ghosts.

    I gave up believing in this stuff about the same time I stopped believing in the Easter Bunny.

    Christians believe the most ridiculous stuff. It amazes me. Rational, educated people who believe in a virgin birth and a god who let himself get nailed to a post, died and came back to life like some kind of friendly zombie. He watches everything you do too, so you better not wank off or he’ll send you to burn in Hell for all eternity. Because he loves you. And one day soon he’s coming back! Christians have been waiting over 2,000 years and we haven’t seen hide nor hair of this invisible god but just keep believing!

    This is what’s known as “mainstream religion” in the modern Western world.

    Is it really surprising that people join cults, when they’ve been raised on such superstitious nonsense?
