Subject: Fight smears against the New Kadampa Tradition
You may have heard that sexual intercourse is a legitimate spiritual practice for ordained practitioners in the NKT.
This is not true. NKT practitioners are followers of Je Tsongkhapa, who taught that ordained Kadampas must maintain the outer example of the Pratimoksha vows, which includes refraining from all sexual activity. It is clear from all Geshe Kelsang’s Sutra and Tantra commentaries and teachings that sexual activity is not permissible for any ordained person under any circumstances. Anyone who states otherwise is misinformed.
This allegation is part of a smear campaign to discredit Geshe Kelsang and the New Kadampa Tradition.

Together we can make sure these negative and divisive attacks don't harm this beautiful Buddhist tradition.
Thanks for your help.
