UPDATE: We have received plenty of emails objecting to the source that suggested "other Tibetan factions" may be "fanning" the story. This is entirely unsubstantiated and pure speculation. There is no reason for us to believe this is true and we regret including the quote that suggested otherwise.
Indian police raided the monastery of Ogyen Trinley Dorje, 17th Karmapa, on Friday, seizing large amounts of cash—donations from followers that have been saved over the years. According to one source, "the Indian media has been incredibly irresponsible, suggesting that the Karmapa is a Chinese spy, etc. These stories are probably being fanned by other Tibetan factions."We are keeping an eye on the situation and ask that anyone with any particular insight into what's going on share their knowledge here or to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
