Karmapa gets his karma 'cleansed'


Karmapa Ugyen Trinley Dorje
New Delhi, Feb 17: After numerous flip-flops from the Indian authorities on the Tibetan leader Karmapa Ugyen Trinely Dorji and his illegal stash of foreign money found in his monastery raised a lot of eyebrows; the Centre has given a clean chit to Karmapa against allegations that he was a Chinese spy.
The Government also found that the money was indeed donations and offerings from the Karmapa's followers who are spread across the world. The news brought considerable relief to the large number of followers, who were rallying for the fact that the Karmapa was innocent.

The Government also advised the Karmapa to seek the advice of chartered accountants after irregularities were found in the way the cash was maintained in the monastery. However, the Government also added that no laws of the land was broken in this issue. Concerns were raised on the land allotment to the monastery as well.

The Government has revealed that the monastery and its donations would fall under the purview of the Foreign Currency Regulation Act. A delegation of Karmapa's followers had met with Union Home Secretary, Gopal K Pillai, earlier and had made him aware of the various facets of the case as well as the innocence of the Karmapa. They also assured that all help would be given from their part to help with the probe.

Pillai also took the opportunity to sensitize the Karmapa through the delegates on the existence of specific laws on foreign currency, on appointing a chartered accountant to manage the large amount of funds and to register the monastery and trust under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act.
