Is Diamond Way Buddhism a CULT??

typing_sound wrote in buddhistgroup
I think this is quite an important topic, since one of our members is thinking of going to a Diamond Way Buddhism centre. I did a little searching, and there are some testimonies of women being sexually harassed, and a lot of claims that the tradition is inauthentic and a cult. If you guys could help me, by either doing some research or sharing what you know about the tradition, that would really help me out! We don't want one of our members taking the poison cool-aid mixture, am I right?! It's time for Community Action! Dun-duh-duuhhh! Lol

Re: For what it's worth

No need to be quiet! Feel free to share more; this is exactly what I wanted when I started this post. If you could tell us more about what the tradition is like for you personally, that'd be great.

Re: For what it's worth

Ok, then great; thanks. Actually there was one more question I should have answered:
I've been a member for no more years than you can count on one hand. I can say that to really know what Diamond Way people are like, it's good to go not just to your small local centre, as one does in the beginning, but to a big international course. Try and figure out what all these people from different cultures have in common, and these will be the qualities that Diamond Way meditations develop. If those qualities are ones that you want to develop, then you know you're in the right place - huzzah! If you think the folks are wierd, or you freak out for whatever reason, you've made a valuable discovery: it's not for you. Also rejoice ;-)
