Shadow of the Dalai Lama, vs nineteenth century occult fascism

I am having a hard figuring out why I didn’t come across The Shadow Of The Dalai Lama sooner. I have been aware of its rough idea for decades, but without anything to back it up.

Without fully endorsing that book, I would say, nonetheless, that it resolves the many suspicions I have had for a long time about Tibetan Buddhism, springing originally from a warning given by Rajnesh over thirty years ago on Buddhist fascism.

However, I do give the Dalai Lama a break, up to a point: he is a secondary effect here. The real problem lies in the action of a group, suspected to be Buddhist and/or Hindu (in quotation marks), that generated some western fascism. This previous generation is clearly detectable in the backwash literature, e.g. various junk New Agism themes like Ariosophy by those who overheard ‘occult whispers’, but understood nothing.
Nonetheless the text of The Shadow Of The Dalai Lama makes a new independent set of charges, which should be examined with care.
But I don’t think the Dalai Lama is full aware of his own place in the larger context.
