For those who may wonder if the arrest really occurred here is a glance at a public record. It is freely available for viewing from this website:


Marshall Duncan aka William Cassidy writes the Fire Marshal

A Buddhist temple recently received an unexpected visit from the fire marshal as the result of an online complaint. The following complaint was submitted by Marshall Duncan, an alias of William Cassidy:

“There are literally hundreds of open flames in the building, candles, oil lamps and so forth. Meanwhile, dozens of people are sleeping upstairs, and the ingress and egress points are narrow. I directly asked somebody there how the Fire Marshal felt aboI ut all of this, and was told, “We’re lucky they never go upstairs when there is an inspection.” There are zip cords and cheap heaters all over the place. This is a DISASTER waiting to happen! Somebody needs to go out there and bring that place into full compliance before there is a terrible tragedy.”

Based on this inaccurate information, the fire marshal brought along two police officers to inspect the premises. What they found when they arrived were Buddhists praying and candles offered on the altars which is of course a traditional offering. Once the fire marshal saw the temple, he sent the cops home. He described what needed to be done for the building to be in compliance. The Buddhist temple is following his suggestions and working with the fire marshal to bring the building into compliance.

Current Activity Update

We have received some material from contacts at Kunzang Palyul Choling which indicate Cassidy is not only propagating slander and liable on his various blogs, but has also posted what members of their community are concerned may be “veiled threats.”

They have reported that he is using his radiofreepalyul blog to communicate messages to their teacher. His pattern now, after they have taken action with both blogger and wordpress to have liablelous material removed, is to post a message for a day or two and then take it down.

Below is a screenshot sent of a post he did the day after the funeral of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, one of the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism in modern times. His complete focus was not on the religious event, but on the absence of Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo.

For all those who may be tempted to follow Cassidy’s “Digital Tibetan Altar” blog on blogspot, and who may be persuaded by his presentation as an authority on Dharma, please be aware he is also the author of the above material and much more defamatory content on his other blogs. Sources have confirmed this as he continues to post private material he took without authorization from their Sedona Center.

KPC has asked that we share this information with the public in order that others may not fall prey to Cassidy’s cunning deceptions. We wish also to point out we have not shared anything in this post that he did not himself publish on his own blog.

Buddhist and Religious Organizations Beware!

Please beware! William L Cassidy has a registered business in Nevada, the business he says, is “religious organization.”

As the posts on this blog demonstrate, Cassidy has masqueraded as a Tibetan Tulku in order to gain entry into Buddhist organizations and collect not only offerings, but uses the knowledge he gains from the organizations to begin turning people away from the Dharma.

Here is a link to his business listing:

For those of you who do not know who he is, or his ex-nun girlfriend, here are some photos:

Please do not be fooled by these two. If they attempt to enter your center to offer advice, for the sake of Dharma turn them away.

From Jetsunma Akhon Lhamo

Anyone who turns the mind of a sentient being away from the profound blessings of a living Buddha, like His Holiness Penor Rinpoche is either insane, stupendously ignorant or demonic.

This has gone too far. The sangha should pick up pen and paper and write about His Holiness. His Holiness is peerless; nobody has done what he has done. The extent of his Dharma activity is unmatched anywhere in the world; the loving care which he has provided for his students is unmatched, and the sublime purity with which he has kept his three levels of vows; outer, inner and secret cannot be denied.

Christianity says, and I would like to borrow the phrase, “…by their fruits you will know them.”

Those who would put him down are dealers of hate. They speak hate, they breathe hate, and the vile pus of their hatred is their nectar.

At the time of their death they will see what they have done.
