Subject: Fight smears against the New Kadampa Tradition
You may have heard that the NKT is an offshoot of the FPMT.
The NKT is not an off-shoot of the FPMT. Geshe Kelsang was not asked by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa but by his (and Lama Yeshe’s) Teacher, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, to become resident teacher of Manjushri Institute in 1977.
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.
