Dunno; I'll withhold judgement, for sure. Too much to read, and I read only 128 bytes. Or so. Not many chars. Thinking of Dinner. --Joe

It is kind of weird that Junpo Sensei (Denis Kelly) raised ethical issues at the meeting with the Dalai Lama, given his relationship with Shimano and his own self-announced “teaching” style of violence and sexual entanglement. I see that ZFI alumnus (and recent participant here) Kim Katami made the page.

It is a pity that the list is not exhaustive. All students should remember “Caveat emptor.”

I wonder if there's a Christian version for dodgy Catholics :hide:

Yes, although such lists are usually dominated by Protestants as the Catholic church has several investigative groups of its own.

And there’s Sarlo’s Guru Rating Service: http://www3.telus.net/public/sarlo/Ratings.htm
“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”
