In general in Buddhism, having sex is seen as a serious monastic transgression for the ordained Buddhist monks and nuns. According to the Buddhist law for monastic life, the rules command celibacy and prohibit sexual relations for the monks and nuns. However, there are many Buddhist monks who although being on vows of celibacy, nevertheless do engage in sexual orgies in secret as per Siddhartha’s recommendations for attaining “enlightenment.” As Siddhartha said to Ananda:
- “Ananda, do not conceive of a holy person, someone practicing the Greater Vehicle correctly, as being faulty. Ananda, this is how you should understand it: A person of the vehicle of the auditors, in order to be absolutely peerless in maintaining meditative calm, will seek uninterruptedly to exhaust the outflows. In the same way, Ananda, the Bodhisattva great hero who is skilled in means, who is endowed with the thought of omniscience, will seek uninterruptedly for omniscience, even to the point of abiding among a holy retinue of women and enjoying, playing with, and taking pleasure in it. [The Skill in Means (Upayakausalya) Sutra]
Siddhartha Gotama/Gawtama was the human being who is commonly referred to as the Buddha. Siddhartha was a second class citizen in ancient India before he founded the religion known today as Buddhism. And Ananda was his closest disciple.
The above quoted sutra is practiced secretly by all the schools of Buddhism. Particularly, strictly observant of this practice is the Vajrayana branch of Buddhism, which is the Buddhist school to which the Dalai Lama belongs. There are many books by Buddhist monks and scholars on this.
From a website we can read the following:
The Buddhist ritual of indulging in orgies is a secret practice of the Buddhist monks, and we (outside observers) can corroborate what happens behind their closed doors through the testimonies of the myriad Western women who had been abused by these Buddhist monks. Many Western women have been abused by these so-called “spiritual guides.” I give two testimonies of these women below, and the references to such testimonies can be corroborated by reputed Western media coverage.But the “Most Honorable” Tsongkhapa, a patriarch of the Gelug lineage of Tibetan "Buddhism," gives this sort of teaching in his book:
The last secret empowerment, which is transmitted to enable the disciple to expound the sutras, means the teacher and the nine female consorts aged from 12 to 20, attain the state all together. The Vajra, possessing the seeds, is put into the mouth of his disciple; in this way, the empowerment is performed. It is the third empowerment, or the former stage, in which the teacher and a female consort receive the wondrous joy together; then, in the latter stage, the teacher attains the state together with the nine female consorts. The wondrous joys arise from them together. …(Tsongkhapa, Extended Treatise on the Progression of the Esoteric Path, translated into Chinese by dharma-master Fazun, Wondrous Favor Publishing Co., 1986, p. 399-400)
The lama teacher, the so-called living “Buddha,” needs to copulate with all nine sexual partners one by one; those sexual partners are called female consorts, aged from 12 to 20. They achieve orgasm of the fourth joy all together and contemplate the Union of Bliss and Emptiness; then, the lama teacher ejaculates semen into the vagina of each female consort and collects all the fluid mixtures. The mixture is called “nectar,” which is given to the disciples during the secret empowerment.
1. Mimi abused by Sogyal Rinpoche
The following link leads to a very informative but also a sad and shocking life story of one of the many young western women named Mimi who was abused by the Vajrayana Buddhist monk Sogyal Rinpoche: https://buddhism-controversy-blog.com/2 ... er-dakini/
Mimi wrote in the article:
Mimi wrote:I was exhausted but I was passing the tests. His demands became more and more excessive, but I didn’t say anything. The rule was that one had to be devoted in order to achieve enlightenment. Most of all, I think the fact that I didn’t have time to reflect gave me emotional relief. I was in mourning, and I thought that these responsibilities were helping me keep my mind on more important things. But in fact I was extinguishing myself.
The first time we touched sexually, I was cut off from a certain consciousness of myself. He told me to lock the door. There was a whole delegation waiting in the cars. The only ones missing were him and me.
I had been sleeping very little for two months. I had gotten used to being abused by demands and words. We accepted everything. I no longer listened. I did what I had to do, no longer asking any questions. I was running on the adrenaline of constant desperation and fatigue. After the first sexual relations, he made very explicit threats, prohibiting me from talking about it to anyone.
Mimi said: "I had gotten used to being abused by demands and words. We accepted everything. I no longer listened. I did what I had to do, no longer asking any questions." This is psychological warfare tactics that was used on Mimi by Buddhist monk Sogyal Rinpoche to break her in order to be able to fornicate with her. At that time Mimi had just lost her grandmother, and thus she was in a weak psychological condition, and Sogyal knew about it. Psychological warfare tactics are very effective against individuals who are emotionally and psychologically vulnerable, for example like existentially depressed individuals.Mimi wrote:And yet, the community consisted of people who were often educated: doctors, magistrates, lawyers, businessmen or pilots … Buddhist masters don’t go looking for Tibetans living in India on three dollars, but rather for white people with money, in the West.
The adults submerged in this environment have to readapt reality in order to survive. They talk of compassion all day long while witnessing public humiliations. They question and repress every form of instinct or feeling. They share a common resentment and anger at living a life of unresolved deceptions. In order to ease this frustration, the master encourages them to eliminate their empathy for their families and immediate friends. And he then fills that void with a different form of compassion, for a state of humanity reduced to a concept: abstract and distant.
And there are many other stories like that where Buddhist monks have been following the explicit “teachings” of Siddhartha of how to attain "enlightenment" by fornicating with several young women in secret sexual orgies! As already mentioned and quoted, one such "teaching" of Siddhartha is found in the Buddhist scripture the "skillful in means" (Upayakausalya) sutra, but there are also many other such scriptures.
2. June Campbel abused by chief Buddhist monk Kalu Rinpoche
Another story is that of a Scottish woman named June Campbell who was abused by another Buddhist lama (priest) named Kalu Rinpoche. She wrote a book about it but there is a very informative article in the Independent here: https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-ente ... 69859.html
In this story again we can witness how a lot of these lazy parasitic Buddhist monks are liars and hypocrite scumbags. Kalu Rinpoche was one of the most revered yogi-lamas in exile outside Tibet. He had supposedly taken vows of celibacy and was celebrated for having spent 14 years in solitary retreat. Among his students were the highest-ranking lamas in Tibet. However, in secrecy he was fornicating with many young women. In the seventies, after June Campbel had become a personal translator to Kalu Rinpoche, he had requested to her that she become her sexual consort and take part in secret sexual activities! And all that while he was on his vows of celibacy.
Excerpts from the Independent:
Here, I find interesting to emphasize the horrendous statement of Buddhist lama Beru who was saying something about the guru "mirroring" the fault of the disciple in order show the disciple's apparent flaws! Interestingly, I got a great opportunity very recently to witness this pathetic and desperate behavior of some stupid and ignorant Buddhist who was trying to mirror or rather "echo" (as he said) some of my eloquent statements back to me, vainly hoping that it might "reverberate back to me!" It seems that this is a common practice among Buddhists along with fornicating in secret sexual orgies with young women in order to attain "enlightenment."The Tibetan Buddhists developed the belief that enlightenment could be accelerated by the decision "to enlist the passions in one's religious practice, rather than to avoid them".(...)
Monks of a lower status confined themselves to visualising an imaginary sexual relationship during meditation. But, her book sets out, the "masters" reach a point where they decide that they can engage in sex without being tainted by it. The instructions in the so-called "secret" texts spell out the methods which enable the man to control the flow of semen through yogic breath control and other practices. The idea is to "drive the semen upwards, along the spine, and into the head". The more semen in a man's head, the stronger intellectually and spiritually he is thought to be.
The combination of religion, sex, power and secrecy can have a potent effect. It creates the Catch 22 of psychological blackmail set out in the words of another lama, Beru Kyhentze Rinpoche: "If your guru acts in a seemingly unenlightened manner and you feel it would be hypocritical to think him a Buddha, you should remember that your own opinions are unreliable and the apparent faults you see may only be a reflection of your own deluded state of mind... If your guru acted in a completely perfect manner he would be inaccessible and you would be able to relate to him. It is therefore out of your Guru's great compassion that he may show apparent flaws... He is mirroring your own faults."
The psychological pressure is often increased by making the woman swear vows of secrecy. In addition, June Campbell was told that "madness, trouble or even death" could follow if she did not keep silent.
"I was told that in a previous life the lama I was involved with had had a mistress who caused him some trouble, and in order to get rid of her he cast a spell which caused her illness, later resulting in her death.
