【TBSN True Buddha Foundation Announcement】
Grandmaster's Written Instructions
I am asking the Purple Lotus Society of USA (PLS) and all True Buddha School (TBS) units to please put aside personal opinions and stop fighting among each other. Each side cultivates on their own, has their own freedom, and is equal.
Effective immediately PLS is no longer a cultivation venue recognized and chartered by the True Buddha Foundation (TBF) of TBS. Lianhua Lihui (蓮花麗惠) will be in charge of the PLS cultivation venue on her own. This venue's dharma activities, such as dharma propagation, fundraising etc., no longer have any connection with TBS.
PLS shall no longer criticize Grandmaster, Shimu, TBS, units within TBS, TBS disciples, etc. Online attacks shall also cease immediately and completely.
As Lianhua Lihui has already established her own organization, her speech and conduct will no longer be part of TBS and her organization will no longer be recognized as a TBS cultivation venue. Any current TBS cultivation venue which intends to follow Lianhua Lihui, or invite her to give a dharma talk or preside over a ceremony at their venue, will be considered ''naturalized'' by Lianhua Lihui of PLS. Such cultivation venue will no longer be considered an authorized TBS cultivation venue.
Should Lianhua Lihui of PLS intend to utilize any registered intellectual property of Grandmaster she must follow established TBS procedure to apply for authorization.
