Dr Michelle Haslam (https://newkadampatraditionreport.org) Joins me to discuss how she was seduced by the idea of living in a peaceful intentional community, only to find out the group's main focus was expansion and encouraging cruelty.

- Who is (Was?) Kelsang Gyatso
- The differences between New Kadampa Tradition and mainline Buddhism
- The hypocritical belief system
- What it's like to live on site
- Why some say NKT encourages sadistic behaviour
- How NKT is like NXIVM and Scientology
- And more...
