    And here are two commentaries about this that put the entire thing into perspective:

    From Tahlia Newland, a former Rigpa leader and author of Fallout: Recovering from Abuse in Tibetan Buddhism

    From the Beyond the Temple blog:

    And the homage being paid to this abusive person:

    Thanks Lise

    I thought there were some wise words from Tahlia Newland in the video, and from Sel Verhoeven at the 'Beyond the Temple' link.

    I agree, both Tahlia and Sel presented their thoughts with skill and wisdom.

    Noted: Some small relief for those who live in recovery from sexual abuse. May both the abused and abusers let go of their attachments and find peace.
