In a recent blog post on Digital Tibetan Buddhist Altar, William Cassidy aka Tenpa made more unfabricated statements in his dark war against the Dharma. Here are the facts.
From Post: Back a couple of months ago, Alyce Louise Zeoli (she calls herself “Jetsunma,” and claims she is a “living Buddha”) called police near her Barnesville, Maryland home to report that, “a team of intruders” were observed “stalking the perimeter.” Nothing wrong with that — can’t be too careful these days.
Jetsunma is the honorific conferred on Akhon Lhamo by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche when he enthroned her as a Tulku in 1988.
Jetsunma does not refer to herself as a “Living Buddha” but others do. Since His Holiness’ recognition of her, she has also been recognized by other lamas. To learn more, click here
There was sign of intruder activity. Security saw people on Jetsunma’s property in the middle of the night and called the police. A police report was filed.
From Post: Trouble is, as the investigation progressed, we are informed that the “intruders” were subsequently identified as undercover narcotics investigators conducting a surveillance.
This is a fabrication on the part of William Cassidy.
From Post: As previously reported elsewhere, on February 3, 2008, a personally owned vehicle registered to Alyce Louise Zeoli was stopped by police near Vega, Texas, carrying a quantity of narcotics from the KPC center in Sedona, Arizona to the KPC center in Poolesville, Maryland. Two arrests were made.
The vehicle had been pulled over for a moving violation, and the young man driving the car, being honest,without being asked told the officer that he had in his possession a small amount of marijuana. For this, the young man and his mother who was also in the vehicle were arrested. They were in the process of moving from Arizona to Maryland, and Jetsunma had lent them her car to be able to move their large rescued dog.
From Post: Although both Alyce Zeoli and her organization, Kunzang Palyul Choling (KPC) made attempts to sweep this one under the rug, the incident somehow came to the attention of narcotics intelligence officers in the Washington, D.C. area.
This is a fabrication. Alyce Zeoli and KPC had nothing to do with the situation.
The rest is a story in which Cassidy makes a lot of implications that are mean spirited and unfounded.
