The Cruelty of the NKT Cult

The New Kadampa Tradition Report web site published this report (see link below) in June 2019 written about psychological (eg. PTSD) and physical damages (eg. burnout) experienced by ex-NKT (New Kadampa Tradition) students. It is emotionally difficult to read, so only take a look if and when you have the mental space to get into some difficult topics (see article attached). It includes some damning commentary on the NKT organisation and their practices, as well as the sentiment of ordained community and senior students. This is somewhat understandable because of the focus of the NKT on specific practices and NKT teachers simply do not receive the training of other traditional Buddhist schools. The article describes how cruel the NKT organisation and NKT teachers can be.
