I came across this photo just now.
It was Photoshopped by one Domo Geshe Rinpoche, [aka Marjorie Wangchuk, aka Tara Wangchuk,
aka Marjorie Tara Dadak (Marjorie Quinn)] . If you try to find an impartial biography or even an account of where she allegedly trained to become a Buddhist teacher, you will strike a large empty information space. Apparently she dreamed she was a reincarnation and has a lot of people believing it. Has someone from the Gelukpa school actually condoned this? Well no. There are some questions…Here, here-competing claims, and of course there is the actual authorized person Domo Geshe Rinpoche sanctioned by HH Dalai Lama. Let’s not let facts get in the way of The Mission, hmmm..
From the Facebook page of the officially recognized person with this title:
We Tibetans will never recognize any other fake reincarnation of the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche which is against His Holiness the Dalai Lama and six million Tibetans.
We request all concerned authorities, organizations and individuals to be alert and not to fall in the net of false claims
I don’t really want to get into that whole situation. I realize I’ve already ignited the troll attracting incense just by mentioning it.
This American person, and this fake photo, are indicative of a trend I can only call:
Let’s Just Make Shit Up To Forward a Buddhist Scented Agenda or ends justify means, etc. etc.
Having gone into this more times than I want to count and am pretty tired of it and also busy with other things…but it merits a mention again if nothing else.
