President of Kultchara Looney Bin Association Malaysia
Board of Directors
Wow… Just wow…
The only thing “unbecoming” about this whole affair is the fact that any group/organization would make such a ridiculously childish public statement to defame (what they are good at accusing others of doing) an individual disclosing many personal and private details such as their legal and commonly referred to names, The equivalent to an American Social Security number, and address of activity/residence!
And YES – it sure is defamation when you circulate false accusations such as this via social media. Yeah right, “trying to poison his lama”! With Kultchara’s track record of over dramatizing and lying, JJ most likely “tried to poison” Scam Rinpoche by feeding him salad instead of a cheese burger!
Regarding the points made above, here are our thoughts in bullet points.
- Now that JJ had some fallout with the Kult Org he automatically is unauthorized to carry on performing the activities that Kultchara not only allowed, but had entrusted him to do previously? JJ was definitely deemed fitting to be a representative of the organization at the time and documented in Scam Rinpoche’s blog.
By the way, the Kult’s definition of the duties of a ‘Pastor’ is laid out as follows:
In fact, the organization even assigned him to act on behalf of Kultchara when receiving visitors from curious ordained Buddhist groups. The “Vietnamese Sangha Visit” album of their Facebook clearly documents this.
Let’s also not forget about JJ being one of the key members leading the puja and assisting the Shugden oracle during his visit to their retreat center that Kulchara is so proud of.
*Delete this video if you want Kultchara, but unless you want to stop showing off to the public how you so pompously invited the Shugden oracle over and delete all videos completely, we’ll find other ones.
And who authorized JJ to teach here? ‘JJ’s First Public Dharma Talk (Setrap Retreat)‘.
So does a university graduate automatically become a non-graduate and unlearns everything if he/she had a fall out with the Vice‐Chancellor? Or does a person stop knowing how to drive a car if the license issuing authority did not like that person?
Funny how Kultchara uses the exact same rhetoric to their advantage. Why can’t we be friends?
Quoting the wise words of Scam Rinpoche himself with slight adaptations…
“May the ban against JJ’s spiritual practice away from Kultchara end soon so that there will be unity, harmony and friendship again based on compassion, acceptance and universal freedom of religious choice without discrimination or recriminations of any kind. May all be harmonious soon.“
- The long term teacher-student relationship between Scam Rinpoche and ‘Pastor’ JJ is undeniable. Scam Rinpoche has openly wrote praises to JJ on his blog, such as on the ‘Dream Manjushri‘ whereby Scam Rinpoche affectionately thanks JJ for his offering of this so called “Dream Manjushri” statue.
Also the fact that JJ did hold the title of a ‘Pastor’ meant the following:
After assessing the above points, and yet if we were to believe Kultchara’s president’s claims that JJ with such close proximity to their kult leader, seniority within the organization “has received no empowerments from H.E. Scam Rinpoche, or Kultchara House and/or any endorsement or recognition from H.E. Scam Rinpoche, Kultchara, or its affiliates”… Doesn’t it make you wonder where all the other ‘Pastors’ stand and how qualified they are to perform these religious activities for followers at a pricey charge nevertheless?
Although we would agree with the point about JJ not being an authentic Master, Rinpoche, Tulku or Geshe, since his teacher Scam Cuckoo are none of the above neither.
- Simply summarized…
But it’s not my fault!
- With His Eminence’s ever so graceful, mature and empathetic blessings…
Thanks Scam Rinpoche and Kultchara for reconfirming. Surely these people too appreciate disassociating with your group and the feelings of love is totally mutual.
