Letter from the US: HOW DID THUVIENHOASEN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF BUDDHISM SHADOW? HOW DID THEY AVOID PAYING TAXES AND EXPOSE THEIR NATURE OF A FAKE GENTLEMAN?

Dear Guru,

I am happy with the enormous amount of information provided by Song Nguyen Tantra House’s brothers as well as by many readers. We has been working together as communities to denounce the lack of transparency of thuvienhoasen.org website. The spirit of vigilance over falsehood, respect and protection of the truth is also the spirit of the Buddha’s teaching: “Do not hurry to believe something even though it is often heard. Do not trust anything that is considered a custom that past thousand years. Do not trust dogma or anything that people talk too much for their forever lives. Do not trust anything, even though it has been said by the old saint’s. Do not believe anything even if it is under the power of a teacher or a missionary. All truths, in their own discernment and after clear confirmation, in accordance with righteousness should constitute their own happiness and all beings’ happiness. That is the only truth and do try to live by that truth “(Kalama-Sutta I). In the same spirit, I would like to continuously provide chanhtuduy.com’s readers a closer view on Thuvienhoasen’s (TVHS) truth, dedicated to the encouragement of being against the wrong views and fighting for the right view of Song Nguyen Tantra House, followed the shining example of our Guru, our deities and Dakini.

Letter from the USA: The true color of Thuvienhoasen’s boards of management

To the audience of chanhtuduy.com,

whether the Boards of management have been truly shared all the financial burden or in stead of that, what really has been shared is the benefits from the website.

I am Mat Nhat Nguyen, my secular name is Le Duy Tri. I am a disciple of Guru Thinley Nguyen Thanh.

By thorough investigation on many of their public activities, I have come to realize that all the criminal behaviors of Thuvienhoasen (TVHS) which were mentioned in my earlier complaint is not everything. I believe that though I haven’t figured out all the true color of THVS yet, these below evidences should be beneficial to conclude on their real dirty business purposes.

Just by reading the official guidelines and purpose which posted on THVS website, most readers certainly admire the benevolence by such charitable men from THVS’s board of management that: ”TVHS is directly managed by the Writing Committee who are lay devotees and the website has been running independently by their own volition without any profitable purpose. The operation cost for the website has been shared by the boards of management themselves”. However, the lack of transparency moves from THVS in their business lines led me to a doubt that whether the Boards of management have been truly shared all the financial burden or in stead of that, what really has been shared is the benefits from the website.

Legally, it is difficult to prove the profit or loss of TVHS on paper because it is not a legal business. It hasn’t publicized its activities with the US Government and of course the boards of management did not pay any tax for their unlicensed business scope accordingly (my earlier complaint #12404328 has presented in detailed on this issue). But in reality, it can be easily referred that the website did create a profitable online business and it has been benefited its Boards of management, with following details:

1.Tam Dieu (Nguyen Xuan Quang – a layman): An organization named Ananda Viet Foundation (AVF) which can be considered as a money-making machine is the representative publisher of many official members from THVS included Tam Dieu. Tam Dieu is the head of THVS’s Writing Committee and was registered himself as the secretary for AVF. THVS, on the other hand, has been acting as the media agency for AVF, promoting many profitable activities such as book sales, fundraising and organizing variety of contests. TVHS had directly recruited a Graphic designer for the scope of designing books’ cover, are there any reasons which lead them not to publish any book by their natural (human) resources? Why was Tam Dieu chosen to be AVF’s secretary? Despite their separated legal names, are these two organization just working as one business only? It is doubtful that THVS did make efforts on legalizing its businesses while still being considered as a “non-profit” organization.

This address is also a mooncake distributor stall

2. Bao Trung (Pham Luyen – a layman): The operation costs of THVS (including labor, network maintenance, infrastructure costs) has been shared by both VNVN and AVF. Headquarters for these 3 organizations located at the same address which is 14902 Moran Street, Suite B Westminster, CA 92683. This address is also a mooncake distributor stall as I introduced in my last report. VNVN is a company specialized on creating design for web registered by Pham Luyen as the position of CEO. The company dissolved in 2012 officially, however it is still working at the present. This is possibly an illegal company as well. Pham Luyen has been concurrently having many appointments at the same time as the deputy management of TVHS, AVF’s treasurer and administrator for Viet Bao newspaper,thuvienhoasen.org and anadavietfoundation.org. In addition, lots of sensitive contents that was designed and managed by VNVN put a question mark on the Buddhist ethic of his deputy.

3. Nguyen Giac (Phan Tan Hai – a layman): Phan Tan Hai is the main editor of Viet Bao newspaper. He is also the managing director of AVF and has been known by many books. Many of his writings has been posted onthuvienhoasen.org. He is one of the lay devotees that has been very active in the political arena. The video that recorded the ceremony of releasing a CD named “Flying flower Meditation” on thuvienhoasen.org was full of hateful colors (watch here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nq3NAtgLaaA). That video is accordingly evoking the doubt of breaking Buddhist’s solidary spirit. It can be easily seen that besides receiving many financial benefits from TVHS and AVF, Phan Tan Hai also take advantage of media interest in plotting the transmission of political message, under the name of Buddhism.

From all the above mentioned points, I would like to affirm that Ananda Viet Foundation in which Phan Tan Hai is the director and layman Tam Dieu is the secretary is actually a political organization under the shadow of Buddhism

From all the above mentioned points, I would like to affirm that Ananda Viet Foundation in which Phan Tan Hai is the director and layman Tam Dieu is the secretary is actually a political organization under the shadow of Buddhism. As a Buddhist, I would like to ask Mr Tam Dieu to make clear about his relationship and connection between Thuvienhoasen and Ananda Viet Foundation, Mr Bao Trung to speak out the legality of thuvienhoasen. It is recommended that all related parties involved in printing, selling and publishing newspaper or supporting documents should cease their “Buddhist” activities until they can prove their legitimacy.

I pray for all beings to have a sense of humility and shame.

Mat Nhat Nguyen – Le Duy Tri.
