I believe it is the right and moral thing to do. These actions should never go un investigated whomever is accused of committing them.

If you want Buddhism to survive, you must take these accusations seriously. Many no longer trust Buddhist organizations to do the right thing after all the multiple scandals in many lineages and the vilification of victims of abuse by clergy. Failing to act causes people to lose faith. Investigate and remove teachers who abuse their sacred trust by abusing their students.

I fully support these senior nuns in their request for transparency and accountability from FPMT in response to the numerous credible allegations of misconduct by Dagri Rinpoche. As the senior nuns state, when Buddhist organizations fail to accept responsibility for harm done by their leaders, the reputation of the Dharma is tarnished by their inaction.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am signing because abuse of power must stop. I believe Buddhism can cure many of the ills of society but it must be a safe and trustworthy vehicle for that to happen. Investigation will shine a light on the truth.

Im signing this petition because these allegations are serious and we need clarity and compassion around them. Behaviours such as this call into question for many the whole validity of the Buddha Dharma so it is important that not only are the complainants allegations examined independently and openly for their sake but also for the sake of preserving the Buddha's teachings for the benefit of all beings.
