More Pulp Buddhism, “We attended the Black crown ceremony for ten dollars in 1979” —

Picture of Chogyam Trungpa hanging out with friends taken by Allen Ginsberg in Boulder, Colorado, June, 1976, for the folks at home this is what a teaching on equality should look like, if you are Ogyen Trinley Dorje please take note, this is how you do it

The Bears and Lions game is on the tv in the other room.

“I want to know how we got from making a donation at the door back in the day with Rangjung Rikpe Dorje.”

Sally continues.

“To Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s pay to play Buddhism.

Sally pauses.

“His Holiness teaching is a lesson about equality.”

The Bears game is on in the other room.

“By making us pay to see him at premium priced ticketed events.”

Caroline replies.

“Welcome to the club, darling.”

Takes sip from drink.

“Now there’s a teaching on equality for today’s generation.”

The Bears and Lions game is on the tv in the other room. Ugh.

“He’s my first Karmapa Yangsi, too.”

Overtime, the Bears just tied the Lions.

“Rangjung Rikpe Dorje died how he lived, penniless.”

Virginia replies.

“We gladly gave Rangjung Rikpe Dorje all that we to him.”

Virginia continues.

“It was love at first sight.”

And It sounds like the Bears have grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory.

Go Bears.

End scene. Fini.

A teachable moment brought to you by the Naropa Prairie Dog Players for your entertainment pleasure.
