Buddhist Yoga Retreat Death Raises Questions on Ariz. Monk’s ‘Enlightenment’ Preaching.
Click here for link to video re Geshe Michael Roach and the tragedy at his retreat:
Three comments (after watching the video) of note:
“Honestly, all feelings about the cultish nature of this retreat aside, I don’t see how it was Roach’s fault. If he offered them ways to get back to civilization, he did his part. They’re both adults and should be responsible for their own safety.”
“The leader kicked them out for being crazy, then when they left and went and did something crazy, the leader is being blamed for it.
I am not saying the leader is a good guy or a bad guy, but this case is like firing an employee for stealing, then when he leaves the company goes down the street and robs a bank, blaming the previous employer who fired him. This article is extremely slanted.”
Some argue that Michael Roach is the one that made them “crazy.”
Does the responsibility of the guru end when the guru finds his/her student’s actions objectionable and wants to break ties?
