Following the recent letter sent by some of Sogyal Rinpoche's students about his behaviour, I have been contacted by several media outlets.
I did not intend to intervene, considering that I have no qualification to be a judge in this matter. However, it has been insistently put to me that failure to respond meant a tacit approval of the acts described in the letter. So I did my best to present Buddhism’s point of view on the important relationship between disciples and a spiritual master. The magazine Marianne published excerpts from the letter I sent in response to their request. These excerpts contain some of the critical remarks that I have expressed, but do not include others points that place the matter in a wider context and give a more balanced view. Feed the Birds - FPMT. What Is Emptiness? — Study Buddhism.
Voidness (Skt. shunyata), more commonly known as “emptiness” in English, is one of the main insights of Buddha.
Buddha realized that the deepest source of everyone’s problems in life is their confusion about how they, others and everything exists. Their minds project impossible ways of existing onto everything. Unaware that what they project does not correspond to reality, people create problems and sufferings for themselves out of ignorance. For example, if we project on ourselves that we are losers and no matter what we do, we will never succeed in life, then not only do we become depressed with low self-esteem, but lacking self-confidence, we might even give up trying to improve our lot. We resign ourselves to a lowly position in life. Voidness means a total absence, an absence of an actual way of existing that corresponds to what we instinctively project.

Negi Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen – A preliminary account of the life of a modern Buddhist saint by Thierry Dodin. Thierry Dodin Institute of Central Asian Studies, Bonn University Summary Negi Lama (1894–1977) of Kinnaur, though never a monk, was one of the foremost Buddhist scholars of his time.
After mastering classical Tibetan so as to understand fully the classical philosophic texts, he went to Tashilhunpo and Lhasa, receiving teaching there and himself teaching Tibetan grammar. Professional jealousy drove him to Khams where he spent 19 years, partly at the royal court, mostly at successive monasteries and yogins’ retreats, studying in libraries and gathering tantric initiations. He then returned to Varanasi in India to learn Sanskrit, the original language of Buddhist philosophy.

Compared with the other creatures, the human population is a minority. In Buddhist teaching, we make a great effort to appreciate the human birth and also the Ten Endowments and the Eight Conditions.
