    Subject: Acknowledgement

    Dear [Israeli Recipient],

    This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter regarding Geshe Michael Roach.

    For your information, Geshe Michael Roach is very controversial and whatever he does contradicts the basic Buddhist teachings. I am copying below two letters which were sent by our office to Geshe Michael Roach and these may help you to know more about him.

    With best wishes,

    Yours Sincerely,

    Tsultrim Dorjee

    Dear Rev. Michael Roach,


    We have recently learnt that you are planning to come to Dharmsala during the June teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama with a large group of Western Buddhists. We also understand that you plan to give separate teachings on the "Essence of Eloquence" to this group in the evenings following His Holiness's teachings in the afternoons.


    On your Diamond Mountain website it is stated "that Geshe Thupten Rinchen is ill. As you may already know, he has tuberculosis in the past, and now he is having a recurrence, which is likely to require surgery. Geshe Thupten Rinchen has strongly encouraged Geshe Michael to conduct these teachings himself. Geshe Michael, knowing how many of you had already made their travel plans, has graciously agreed to do so."


    We have made inquiries about what you have said and find that it is not strictly true, because Geshe Thupten Rinchen did not ask you to give the teachings on his behalf. Moreover, we have become aware that there is an unresolved controversy over your current observation of the Vinaya vows and your keeping company with women. We have received inquiries and letters of concern about your status and conduct from many people.


    We have seen a photograph of you wearing long hair, with a female companion at your side, apparently giving ordination. This would seem to conflict with the rules of Vinaya, and as you know, the Gelug tradition makes a point of upholding these very strictly.


    This unconventional behavior does not accord with His Holiness's teachings and practice.


    Under the circumstances, keeping the greater interest of the purity of Buddhist tradition in mind, we advise you not to come to Dharamsala on this occasion.

    Dear Rev. Michael Roach,


    This is to thank you for your letter of May 30, addressed to Chhime Rigzin-la both in English as well as Tibetan. Chhime-la is presently away with His Holiness and I am responding to your letter on behalf of our Office here.


    We have gone through your long explanation but still do not support your coming to Dharmsala. If you have reached the path of seeing, as you claim in your letter, you should then be able show extraordinary powers and perform miracles like the Siddhas of the past. Only then will the followers of Tibetan Buddhists be able to believe and accept your claims. 


    Otherwise, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the Spiritual and Temporal leader of Tibet having responsibility over the welfare of Tibetan Buddhism many have often complained to Him that He should be strict with those who are not adhering to the general norms of discipline according to our tradition. And your coming to Dharmsala will be seen by many as His Holiness condoning your behavior and practice. 


    In view of all these we advise you not to visit Dharmsala in the greater interest of the purity of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition as clearly indicated in the letter of Chhime Rigzin-la dated May 24, 2006. However, as for the other members of your group those who are interested are welcome to attend the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

    To: "Office of H.H. the Dalai Lama"

    Subject: Request for advice and permission regarding a Hebrew blog on the Geshe Michael Roach controversy

    Dear Precious Teachers of Tibet, 

    I have begun translating the website regarding the Geshe Michael Roach controversy, www.Diamond-Cutter.org, into Hebrew.  I would like to anonymously post the Diamond-Cutter.org web site contents on a local Israeli blog site.  

    There are currently two organizations associated with Geshe Michael Roach in Israel, led by Lama Dvora Tzvieli, a student of Geshe Michael Roach: Buddhist Classics in Israel and The Israeli Center for Karmic Management. 

    My thought is that the blog will come up on Internet search engines with the appropriate search terms, and therefore be accessible to people seeking information in Hebrew about Lama Dvora Tzvieli and these two groups. 

    Lama Dvora Tzvieli, as her students call her and as she is widely known here, translates Geshe Michael Roach's texts into Hebrew and teaches in Israel.  Her teachings are especially popular for Israeli students who find the translated texts and Hebrew instruction accessible. Her students and newcomers to her groups are unlikely to encounter or read information in English regarding the controversy.

    Lama Dvora Tzvieli and her students are currently fundraising $195,000 USD for a new house in Arizona for Geshe Michael Roach. Lama Dvora Tzvieli also teaches "Tibetan Buddhism" for business success, business management, good karma, and success and abundance in life. 

    I am writing to request advice and permission to carry this project to completion, and to verify that my actions are in accordance with the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  

    An official letter, directed to the Israeli community of practitioners, to post together with the Diamond-Cutter.org material in Hebrew, would be most greatly appreciated, if His Holiness so wishes.  

    I will await your kind advice and guidance before proceeding further with this project.  

    Thank you very much.

    Losar tashi delek!  May this year be a year of peace, for Tibet, for China, and for the world.  

    May His Holiness enjoy long life and health and may all His wishes be immediately realized.
