Dalai Lama accepted $1M bribe to endorse NXIVM sex cult

NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”) is a marketing organization that offers self-help personal and professional development seminars. Founded in 1998 by former computer programmer Keith Rainere in Albany, NY, NXIVM’s president is Nancy Salzman, the two are referred to, respectively, as “Vanguard” and “Prefect”.

More than 12,000 people have attended NXIVM’s seminars between its founding in 1998 and 2010. The organization claims to have worked with more than 16,000 people in 30 countries. Among NXIVM’s clients are notables such as actresses Linda Evans (always a sucker for cults) and Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack of the Smallville TV series; UK mogul Richard Branson; BET co-founder Sheila Johnson; former U.S. surgeon general Antonia Novello; Stephen Cooper of Enron; Ana Cristina Fox, daughter of former Mexican president and rabid anti-Trumper Vicente Fox; and Seagram heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman who have plowed millions of dollars into NXIVM. In addition, the director of NXIVM in Mexico is Emiliano Salinas, son of former Mexican president Carlos Salinas.

But former members have exposed NXIVM as a sex cult. According to an  exposé by Barry Meier for The New York Times, members of a “secret sisterhood” of 70-80 women within NXIVM, including actress Allison Mack, are branded with Raniere’s initials (KR), referred to as “slaves”, blackmailed, and beaten with paddles. Women who wish to join the “sisterhood” are required to provide nude photos or other potentially damaging information about themselves.

NXIVM sex cult branding

Ryan Parry reports for the Daily Mail, January 24, 2018, that none other than the Dalai Lama was paid $1 million to travel to America to speak at a NXIVM event in Albany, New York in 2009. Attended by 3,000 of the cult’s followers, the Dalai Lama’s appearance was trumpeted by NXIVM as an endorsement and a “victory”. The Dalai Lama even honored cult leader Keith Raniere with a khata — a traditional Tibetan ceremonial scarf that symbolizes purity and compassion.

Daily Mail uncovered how NXIVM plotted to get the Dalai Lama to speak at the event, a scheme that involved Seagram heiress Sara Bronfman and Lama Tenzin Dhonden, the Dalai Lama’s effective ambassador (“personal emissary of peace”) to the U.S., who are said to have had an illicit affair. Tibetan monks are supposed to be celibate.

Dhonden arranged for Sara Bronfman and her sister Clare, as well as NXIVM president Nancy Salzman, to meet with the Dalai Lama in Dharmsala, India. There the women offered to make a contribution of more than $1 million, and invited “His Holiness” to New York to meet NXIVM leader Raniere.

However, after local media in Albany, NY, reported that the Dalai Lama was planning a four-day trip to the U.S. visiting prestigious colleges alongside “cult” leader Raniere, the Dalai Lam canceled the visit, concerned over the negative media attention. The Bronfman sisters flew back to India, this time with NXIVM leader Raniere in tow, to convince the Dalai Lama the press coverage was inaccurate. The Dalai Lama then agreed to attend a one-day NXIVM event as part of an already scheduled trip to the U.S. to visit Harvard University in Massachusetts.

On her blog, Sara Bronfman called the Dalai Lama’s change of mind a success: “After an onslaught of negative articles and powerful local personalities voicing their lack of support for his proposed visit, His Holiness postponed until the truth became evident. In the end the truth prevailed, but in the process we lost participants, money and good faith.”

In a YouTube video of the event held at the Palace Theater in Albany on May 6, 2009, the Dalai Lama was asked by someone in the audience about his canceled visit. “His Holiness” said about Raniere and NXIVM: “If you have done something wrong, you must accept, you must admit, change, make correction. If you have not done (anything wrong), make clear all these allegations (are untrue), truthfully, honestly, openly, transparently.”

Having said that, however, Raniere was called on stage and the Dalai Lama draped the khata — a symbol of purity and compassion — around the cult leader’s neck.

In February 2018, the Dalai Lama Trust removed Dhonden as its executive secretary, amid accusations of corruption, pending an investigation. Nor is there any report that the Dalai Lama has returned the $1+million “contribution”.

  2. Only newborns are free of impurities, sometimes not. Celibacy Is not totally embraced by men, the call of the flesh is so strong it can overpower the most “pure” of the mind, we are HUMANS. The mind controls the desires -to posses money is a power tool to the most pure of the believers. Only the Son of God, Jesus Christ overcame Satan.

  3. I am never been impressed by the Dalai Lama. For decades every bookstore promoted his books by putting them front and center so we coudln’t miss his face.I picked the books up and read a few pages and did a big yawn, and thought to myself, why was everyone fawning over this guy? He’s up to his ears with intelligence agencies, and more so I would have to say this is no innocent mistake on the lamas part participating in this thing.

    • At least in part, Christians try to apply their standards to Buddhists. We should remember, they don’t apply, or aspire, to those standards themselves.

      I’m not sure what Alma’s comment regarding celibacy has to do with this, but sex, per se, isn’t sinful for Christians or Buddhists. Some have implied that it is a “higher” state to be celibate, mostly based on St. Paul’s writings.

      I see the Dalai Lama as the “Trickster”. He doesn’t take the world, or himself, all that seriously. If you want to offer him a bribe he’ll most likely take it. Sometimes I find that offensive, he doesn’t.

      His philosophy seems to be that he is in this incarnation and will probably see another. If he doesn’t get it “right” this time, better luck in the next.

      • “His philosophy seems to be that he is in this incarnation and will probably see another.”

        According to Tibetan Buddhists, it has always been the same Dalai Lama. The current one is simply the 14th reincarnated version.


  4. Another cultural icon falls right in front of us. I always gave some respect to the Dalai Lama for his symbolic position as a promoter of peace. Yes, I realize now how gullible I have been, about the Dalai Lama, and a whole stage full of other false heroes.

  6. Well, Hello Dalai!
    Who is this faker, and whose side is he on? He seems to be like the levitating man in the Warner Brothers cartoon: Always in the background doing something, always insidious.
    Who does he work for—the CIA? China? The KGB? The Queen of England? And what does he stand for? Because the Prince of Nebulosity has never, to my mind, ever said anything that was memorable. He has never done anything specific, as in getting two warring sides to shake hands. In fact, the only thing he has ever said that I can remember is his admission that he is a “Marxist.”
    The Dalai Lama is that sort of character the late, great Samuel Beckett could have written a play about, “Waiting for the Dough.” Sigh…

    • I’ve read but not confirmed that he’s endorsed the globalist, one-world United Religions Initiative, intending to provide quasi-religious and pseudo-philosophical pantheistic justification for the total enslavement of mankind. No more wars because no more anything but atomized identity with the total state. On the quasi-religious side, these pop spiritual leaders will be promoting Teilhard’s noosphere of a single human consciousness-except for our leaders of course, whose excellence is enhanced and not tarnished by unrestricted self indulgence. Should be a fun world. I believe the Vatican’s on board, too.


      • I wrote my reply shorty after waking up (after I tied one on last night. That’s all right—I only drink when I see a snake—which I also keep handy!)
        This said, I am glad you brought up the disgraced Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin (a charlatan!) and the noosphere. It’s all New Age crap, brought to us by Madame Blavatsky and Alice Bailey. So as hungover as I was, this didn’t come to mind!
        And Yes, Dalai is a globalist, and, Oh Yes, I do remember he said—about six years or so back (?)—that “Matreiya” or the Anti-Christ is alive on Earth now. So my next question is, is he speculating, or does he possess any solid knowledge?
        Yep. The Big Faker, famous for NOTHING!

  7. I just read an article where the actress Catherine Oxenberg is trying to get her daughter away from this group. She knows it is a cult, but her daughter refuses to listen to anyone. Very sad.
    I know of one couple from Colorado that were consumed by a cult in Co. Years ago and the family has never gotten them back. They signed everything over to the cult. Another one lost to one of these groups is my brother in laws daughter, he isn’t even sure where she is and has no contact with any family member. I wish there were laws against these groups.
    I feel this group is just another one.

  9. Unfortunately, had a family friend who was married to some jerk that sent one of the kids off to a NXVIM proxy group, this lead me to read up on it a bit… although nauseatingly atheist, cultnews.net does have a lot of articles about NXVIM, it might be worth checking, though I imagine they’ll ignore the branding etc.

    As far as the claimant dalai lama (because there are 4 or 5 other people also claiming to be the dalai lama, this jerk just seems to be the one who cut the most deals.) I’d point folks here to “the shadow of the dalai lama” http://www.trimondi.de/SDLE/Contents.htm Which, if true, (emphasis on the If as I don’t know the religious standing or integrity of the trimondis, although considering what I’ve seen, it is decidedly plausible, I’ll get into that in a minute.) it wouldn’t be surprising that he’d accept a bribe from a sex cult, as it would appear, according to the trimondi’s texts anyway, that buddhism is such itself… the flowery image it has cultivated for decades is likely a farce, the mask comes off when you read how it militantly exterminated the native religions in the countries it came across, this is why china didn’t have very many “deities” left by the modern era, and why only a hollowed out version of shinto remains in japan, on top of this the mask further falls when one notices the history of monks being sought out to deflower women, and the relegating of “Love” to the class of “desires” which, to buddhism, are considered “evil” and a hinderance that causes suffering, compare this with what God has taught us about Love. Additionally, what other religion on earth has more than 100 “hells” of various sorts of suffering (called by the japanese buddhist sects “naraku”, including but not limited to people being frozen to death, torn appart by dogs, etc.) and what does this say about their system?

    More than this however, I’ve noticed that there is a disturbing similarity between kabala and buddhism, consider the “adi buddha” image vs kabala’s “adam kadmon”, and also another point of curiousity why were occultist types like blavatsky et al so enamoured of it, to the wanton promotion of it along with hinduism in the occult boom of the 1800’s? It’s false doctrines even shaped modern cults pretending to be christian, such as “christian science” (the mahayana sect of buddhism being responsible in part for eddy’s false doctrine of evil/dieseases being an illusion, as I understand it). My own suspicions is that buddhism is from the same source as kabala, and both are nothing more than gnosticism/satanism with regional “versions”, we should also note another similarity, buddhism promotes the ego (its all about how “you” can use others to clear your own karma so that “suffering” can end via nihilism, relegating the participant to a identity-less wad of energy to be consumed by “the universe”), while claiming to be a system to be free of it, seeing the highest form of existence as eradicating the self (individuality is given of God, after all) terminating independent existence, and being consumed by the nebulous “universe” as a form of recycled energy. This is similar to satanism’s “do what you want” system as promoted by crowley. (where “you” can do what “you” want for your own ends arguably, although it is actually doing what the devil wants you to do, ending up ruining the individual so that they can be used for satan’s purposes & goals and ultimately throwing away their individuality.)

    We should also take note of the cultures that embraced it, japan’s culture was already not very good (the native Ainu were driven out and demonized, per usual.) and in present day is most notable for it’s pseudo-respect, while actively promoting adultery, child pornography (so-called ‘lolicon” and “shotacon”) and social isolation (they don’t communicate because “face” is more important to that culture, risk of embaressment is considered a greater threat than death.) china is now a bolshevik proxy, etc. This is why I consider buddhism as much a threat as satanism’s other “regional” chapters, like kabala, neo-gnosticism, etc. If perhaps more pernicious, for it tries to appear to be the most unjudgemental, and pious religion on the face of the earth, adopting an image that the luciferians likely approve of wholeheartedly.

    As far as NXVIM goes as well, it may well be partially based off this malarkey at some level, (the “training” undergone might be the tip-off pf connection…) it might be worth examining

    • ” why were occultist types like blavatsky et al so enamoured of it”

      And the German Nazis as well. It is noteworthy that the Nazi swastika symbol is actually an ancient religious icon in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.


      • Indeed Dr. Eowyn, as I recall blavatsky and the theosophical society cult were using it well before the nazis were, and it was her garbage that lead to the whole aryan malarkey (Did you know the extended arm salute was an american practice well before the nazis adopted it? As documented by one rex curry, although it seems some of his other research regarding secret societies seems to be a bit flawed). I find it disturbing that these people don’t bother to look at the roots of the things they choose to throw themselves into, I certainly wouldn’t want to go identifying with some group that I didn’t personally vet myself by examining inside and out and finding every spec of dirt or skeleton in the closet possible. All these garbage things tie together though, I find, from cults/secret societies to the occult, to gnosticism/satanism and the new age, the connections aren’t hard to find, and anyone can dig them up with due research, patience, and a good “BS Filter” so to speak… like finding out the antifa logo is the same as the german communist party from back during the world wars era.

        These are what the old chinese curse (masked as a blessing) calls “interesting times”, it would seem.

  10. UPDATE:

    Federal prosecutors announced today that Smallville actress Allison Mack, 35, has been arrested for her alleged role in the NXIVM sex-slave cult, on charges of sex trafficking and forced labor.

    Mack was cult leader Keith Raniere’s direct “slave” and had a sexual relationship with him — but also acted as a “master” to other slaves, who were forced to have sex with Raniere and get his initials burned into their pubic region with a cauterizing pen, according to the criminal complaint.
