September 13th, 2022 the network Arte (France, Germany) will broadcast a documentary by French documentary makers Elodie Emery and Wandrille Lanos: ‘Abuse in Buddhism: The Law of Silence‘ [previous working title: ‘Buddhism: The Unspeakable Truth’].
The German version is titled ‘Buddhismus: Missbrauch im Namen der Erleuchtung‘ [‘Buddhism: Abuse in the Name of Enlightenment’]. For a general idea of its content, translate the announcements using Google Translate or Deepl.
The makers filmed in several countries in Europe and Asia. I contributed to this documentary myself, and I thoroughly recommend watching it. I’ve gathered that the broadcast will be the international version, [previously titled:] ‘Buddhism: The Unspeakable Truth,’ with English postsynchronisation and subtitles. [The documentary can now be watched online here.]
The Tibetan Lama pictured in the announcement is Namkha Rinpoche, who’s currently based in Spain. He has been accused of sexual abuse by female ex-devotees in Switzerland and the Netherlands.
