You know, the more I take time to reflect on this, I do feel let down and bothered by it.
Isn't the whole philosophy behind being a spiritual leader someone of a higher caliber of moral character who guides the rest of us by steering us to higher values by doing the right thing?
With that in mind, isn't one of the fundamental beliefs in being a Buddhist monk disengaging in physical pleasures such as vices like smoking, drinking, and don't forget - it is illegal to gamble out of state sponsered casinos where they live, so they committed a crime of not only moral but a legal one. Where did they get all this money as well? That's a whole lot of "earthly" possessions for such a group, no?
Maybe its me, but its depressing to see people you would like to think is "above" it all to get caught living different from what they preach. Sign of the times I guess! Sigh..........
Spiritual mentorship can be really tricky. I've really only had one mentor in my life and I had to move on from him after about 5 years because I felt like he couldn't teach me anything more than what I already knew. I have travelled this path and learnt mostly from intuition and altered states of conscioiusness (my supreme self and disincarnate beings you might say).
I am of the opinion that most (self appointed) masters and spiritual teaches are either fakes or highly delusional. It is especially bad in the 'new age' movement.
