Lama Buddhism is also a dugpa religion.
Dalai Lama has his dugpa's and red cap rituals too.
So what do you think people need????????????????
Christian,Roman Catholic and satanic rituals????
No, I think not.
That is why TS try to teach eye openers to the people.
And as I wrote before Krisnaji and also Rudolph Steiner have had
there own way for teaching us; an importable way of living.
Not that only Krishnaji or Steiner have truth, but all together sure
And it is up to US what we need!!!!!!!!
Or is there one want to be the holy Spirit by himself???>
That will be a lot of responsability.
Better you than me,
