  1. Indian media reports of this Karmapa story is a scam and racket against the Indian people. Indian police are so corrupt. It is well known that Buddhists donate to their gurus, this does not make them a Chinese spy, a recycled charge. Just look around to see who would benefit from this smearing of the Karmapa’s good name: check out the Sharmapa’s deep connections to the Indian establisment.
    India should rid itself of corruption and its press should do a better job.
