Ole Nydahl & Diamond Way accused of sexual abuse in Switzerland

Here is a newspaper article from Switzerland recently brought to my attention:

Lama Ole Nydahl missionaries are accused of abuse, sexual questionable and racism. The Diamond Way Buddhist church, which operates five centers in Switzerland, led by their leader, Lama Ole Nydahl, is a real cult. Now former members and leaders complain of the racism and abuse of power due to questionable relationships with students.
"I've seen the group as elitist, racist and sexist", says the 32-year-old communications consultant Marianne Huber (all names have been changed by the editor).
She was there two years. At first she was fascinated. "Lama Ole's charm is that he his followers full enjoyment of life, sex, success and enlightenment promises" says the cult expert and professor of theology at Zurich Georg Schmid. The ex-boxer Lama Ole likes driving fast motorbikes and sex. In the seventies, for drug deals he went to prison.

In Schawinski he boasted of having had sex with more than 500 women.

But the glory of Ole Nydahl quickly rubbed off for Marianne Huber. His handling of sex and women was intolerable to her: she has noticed in a summer training camp as Nydahl in addition to its two official women who take turns at the side of the Lama. In six months, he had sex with many of his female students. "These women should still be happy because they were in contact with him", Nydahl told her when she criticized him.

The same has also seen by ex-follower Anne Dietrich. "These young women were allowed to accompany him on his travels and sit at his feet when he lectured." Nydahl told her this would help their development. Dietrich accuses him of abuse of power, because such relations are problematic among equals, but inexcusable in a teacher-pupil ratio.

He is on the Internet photos showing him almost always surrounded by women - or in tight swimming trunks and brown burnt bodies. Nydahl escapades also criticized the German Buddhist Union (DBU). "Many dislike its dealings with women as simply scandalous."

Finally, Anne had enough after Nydahl claimed Africa's poverty was it's own fault and that sperm banks should be set up for white men to 'spread themselves'.
Baffled by those comments during Nydahl's tirade, she wrote to him about her discomfort. His answer: "We can now avoid that we have in a few years even larger ghettos of foreigners, which is undermining our society, which is a big win."

"He is almost following a Nazi ideology. Rhetorical racism, a coarse slogan, which also xenophobic statements in it are lying, "says Schmid.

The followers are repeatedly brainwashed. This was an important characteristic of a sect. The are told "Nydahl is also an elitist preacher of the best religion for the best people. It combines Buddhism with arrogance, judges Schmid. An example of an ego trip by Nydahl when asked about recent natural disasters: "It is their own fault" he said in an interview. And he added smugly: "As long as the women would be beautiful and no speed limits on the highways, nothing else matters".

One Year!

This blog has now been running for a year and has made significant progress in exposing Ole Nydahl and his Diamond Way cult! Thanks to all of you who have made this possible through protests, flyering, and other ways the word has been spread. Keep up the good work!

Also, a rather amusing blog:

Various Updates

There is now firm evidence that Ole Nydahl gets paid twice for every trip he makes. He is re-imbursed by the 'Diamond Way Foundation', run by himself and Caty Hartung, and yet still takes money from his cult's centres during his travels to cover 'travel expenses'. I have also been in contact with many women who have been sexually abused by Ole Nydahl or his cult's 'travelling teachers'.

I have also found a rather amusing trend of Ole Nydahl now starting to call himself 'Ole Nydahl PhD' to try and gain legitimacy , as the 'Lama' title he has been using since the 16th Karmapa's death is becoming increasingly known to be false. However, he never completed a PhD either! He dropped out and went smuggling drugs instead, for which he went to jail in 1969.

Also, thanks to Rick Ross for adding the two Diamond Way cult links to his site:

I today received a reply from the Charity Commission saying they will investigate the Diamond Way cult after recieving countless letters of complaint from people. This is great news!

Ole Nydahl attacks journalist!

An article was recently published by a Hungarian journalist who interviewed Ole Nydahl. Ole Nydahl didn't like the article, as he felt it portrayed a negative image of him, despite the fact there was nothing there he hadn't said himself. He responded by attacking the journalist in a peronal letter, accusing her of being "attractive, but mentally ill and anorexic." Unfortunately, the letter itself was also published by the journalist, exposing his tactics for all to see!

Thanks to Hannah for designing this flyer. Feel free to print and hand some out!

Also, an interesting response I have had recently:

"You are absolutely correct. I’ve attended the DW centre in Holborn.

Yes Diamond way is a cult, I've had extremely painful experiences with them. It took me the larger part of a year to recover from them.

I confirm every point you made. (And well written too). I classify them as dangerous and even evil.

They sell alcohol, (without a drinks license) in the centre despite the Buddhist precept which negates the drinking of alcohol. Yet Ole recommends they go out drinking!!

I've known a few people part with their money and regret it.

Buddhism seems to be getting freely hijacked these days."

Ole Nydahl in London

Ole Nydahl, the well-known fraud and leader of the Diamond Way cult, will be in London on the 25th-26th of April. Due to his spreading of hate-speech, the Home Office is looking into getting him banned from the country. If he does however manage to make it to London, his events will be picketed. Watch this space.

Legal threats

On top of the death threats, I now have Diamond Way cult members issuing legal threats against me. These would not stand up in a court of law, so grow up, and stop using tactics like the ones Scientology uses. It just makes you look more and more like a cult!
