Shugden Cults Exploiting Language Barriers to Secure Funding From Unknowing Demographics

As a particular Shugden cult seeks out further funding they have begun to redirect their attention to non-English language demographics that are unable to investigate the cult in their native language due to language barriers. Thai, Indonesian, Iranian, and Chinese Buddhists are particularly at risk.

In the past, shugden cults have misrepresented themselves as friends and followers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in order to defraud unknowing groups of Buddhists of donations. This has occurred in modern Tibet and, until recently, in Malaysia and Singapore.

For that reason, I would like to ask speakers of more than one language to translate material concerning shugden cults and describe in several languages your experience with shugden sectarianism.
