Subject: Fight smears against the New Kadampa Tradition
You may have heard that the NKT is a degeneration of Buddhism.
The NKT is not a degeneration of Buddhism. Since the NKT follows the Mahayana Buddhist teachings of the great Buddhist Masters Atisha (982-1054 AD) and Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419 AD), which are traced back to Buddha Shakyamuni himself (500 BC), it is neither false, nor unorthodox, nor a degeneration.
This allegation is part of a smear campaign to discredit Geshe Kelsang and the New Kadampa Tradition.
Learn more about this and other smears and help push back with the truth:
Together we can make sure these negative and divisive attacks don't harm this beautiful Buddhist tradition.
Thanks for your help.
