Case No. 31/2017: Ken Wilber
NOTIFICATION to Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi
On February 6, 2018, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is communicating with Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi, as a result of the Judgment that has been made against Ken Wilber for the crimes of Academic Dishonesty, Spiritual Scam and False Buddhism, Violation of Buddhist Law, Crime against Buddhist Cultural Heritage and Violation of Human Rights, which was sentenced for the fraudulent teachings of this writer. Although Ken Wilber has committed numerous violations of the Buddhist Ethics, he seems to be receiving public support from Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi, which is an act of complicity that must be immediately cancelled.
The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights clearly considers that Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi is violating the sacredness of Buddhist Spirituality by publicly stating that Ken Wilber is the perfect one, is unique and brilliant without parallel, all of which is a total offense against Buddhism, since this individual is a fraud, not only for resorting to plagiarism but also because for decades he has transmitted ideas that totally misinterpret Buddhism and Meditation, even endorsing gurus that are sexual abusers, violent, insane and corrupt. In addition, Ken Wilber not only shows pathological character traits of narcissism and sectarianism, but also transmits a pseudo-spiritual and pseudo-scientific system along with an ethnocentric and right-wing political system. Obviously, all these traits and ideas of Ken Wilber are a profound violation of the Bodhisattva ideal. Even, Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi has come to lie openly when saying that Wilber has 50 years of experience in Zen and Vajrayana. Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi has even said not only that Wilber is one of his great teachers, but also that his own Zen Master, Jun Po Denis Kelly, has not recovered from narcissistic tendencies, which is tantamount to confessing that he has not fully awakened, unconsciously invalidating his own Zen lineage, which is a school that comes from Eido Shimano Roshi, who has had multiple complaints of sexual abuse for several years.
Ergo, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi to immediately stop supporting Ken Wilber, this being an act of complicity with immoral ideas that undermine the dignity of Buddhism.
With spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),
