Subject: Fight smears against the New Kadampa Tradition
You may have heard that the NKT has broken away from the main Tibetan Buddhist traditions, including the Gelugpa.
The NKT is a Mahayana Buddhist tradition with historical connections with Tibet, rather than a Tibetan tradition. The reason for this is that Geshe Kelsang wishes NKT practitioners always “to present Dharma in a way appropriate to their own culture and society without the need to adopt Tibetan language and customs”.
This allegation is part of a smear campaign to discredit Geshe Kelsang and the New Kadampa Tradition.
Learn more about this and other smears and help push back with the truth:
Together we can make sure these negative and divisive attacks don't harm this beautiful Buddhist tradition.
Thanks for your help.
