Prowikipedians erased as "vandalism" my footnoted observation that Yeshe was married:
- In 1981 Lama Yeshe married an Australian disciple, apparently for the purpose of obtaining an Australian passport which, it was thought, might have allowed him to visit Tibet.  Their marriage is said to have been a celibate one (though this would still have constituted a serious violation of the vinaya).
And the source:
-  Paul Croucher, A History of Buddhism in Australia, 1948-1988; New South Wales UP, 1989; p. 93.
I submit that this is actually in important piece of information (though understandably embarrassing to Yeshe's followers), and that the source appears to be reliable. --Dawud —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:44, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
If you cited the source it's certainly not vandalism. What you don't cite is a source for the business of a celibate marriage being a vinaya violation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:13, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
I know of and have read a lot of Croucher's book: much of what is in it is complete rubbish; it is NOT an authoritative source. Croucher generally takes a very cynical and skewed view of many events. It would be good to find some other source for this claim. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:08, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
