    Please google Domo Geshe fraud and you will see numerous websites that expose this woman Majorie Dadak also known as Domo Geshe Rinpoche a fraud, con artisr and cult leader.

    Please google and see the being of a 12 part series on Marjorie
    Dadek. They provide detailed evidence that this woman is a total fraud and cult leader.

    She is falsely claiming to be the reincarnation of Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

    No Tibet Buddhist sect has recognized her.

    Marjorie Dadak has recognized herself as the incarnation and no one else has.

    She claims that she is the reincarnation of Domo Geshe in the GELUPA tradion.

    The 14th Dalai Lama has recognized a small Tibetan boy as the reincarnation. You can email the private office of His Holiness at and they will confirm that Marjorie Dadak is not the reincarnation.

    His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche (Gelupa sect) has also recognized a small Tibetan/American boy as the incarnation. You can email H.H. Trijang Rinpoche at and they will confirm that she is not the incarnation of Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

    Marjorie Dadak is now illegally ordaining monks and nuns and giving empowerments.

    This fraud must be removed as an official advisor of the Kapilvastu Day Movement.

    Please google and

    You will find the two officially recognized reincarnations of Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

    One site is from H.H. the 14 Dalai Lama and the other is from H.H. Trijang Rinpoche.

    You will notice that Marjorie Dadak aka Marjorie Quinn aka Tara Wangchuk aka Domo Geshe Rinpoche is not listed on either of these websites.

    WHY, because no Tibetan Buddhist Sect recognizes her.

    Marjorie does recognize herself as Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

    Please remove this woman from your website.

    Nobody is in charge of reality.

  4. There’s a new website that exposes this woman as a fraud.
