David McCarthy's letter a disservice to the followers of either Karmapa
by Cameron Hahn, Burlington, The Buddhist Channel, Aug 22, 2005
I find that the posting of David McCarthys letter is a disservice to the followers of either Karmapa. To dismiss western followers of the Karmapa as naive is painting a complex issue with a broad statement.
We are very fortunate to have two Karmapas to teach us and should show respect to the students of either one. Even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is taking a more neutral stance on this issue.
Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon but the posting of negative letters can only yield neg ative results.
