Oriental Pagans Welcomed at Benedictine Monastery Teach Worship of False Gods

Editor:   Tibetan Buddhism has nothing to do with Catholicism.  Catholic Missionaries to the country were not always met with open arms., and even endured terrible persecutions to bring the Gospel there.  Of course, since the Dalai Llama said he was a Marxist, it does make sense that some of his co-religionists would arrive at the Modernist Monastery to teach their false religion.  The following excerpt is an advert for an event which took place in June for a retreat.

Exploring the Nature of Mind
A Path of Liberation Meditation Retreat
with Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche
May/June 2011

This practice retreat presents a rare opportunity to receive in-depth teachings on the nature of mind from Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche. The nature of mind teachings are drawn from the paths of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, the highest and most profound meditative teachings of the Kagyü and Nyingma Schools of Tibetan Buddhism. The retreat is a practice intensive. Each day will include 6-8 hours of formal meditation practice, along with a daily teaching and periodic small group discussions, led by Tergar instructors.

Tsoknyi Rinpoche will lead the retreat from May 28th to June 3rd, during which time he will give daily teachings and offer small-group interviews. The first and last weeks of the retreat will include video teachings by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, along with instruction and group practices led by Tergar instructors and lamas.
