Picture of Rangjung Rikpe Dorje that the old man instagramed off of Werner Erhard’s web page, the world may have forgotten about EST, speaking of sentient mêmes, but for as long as something leaves a digital footprint it lives on, so to speak, and the cow jumped over the moon
I was looking at our numbers on Tinfoil Ushnisha and of our recent episodes the one where we discussed why young people in the 1970’s were into what Rangjung Rikpe Dorje was doing at the time has the most views at the moment so let’s take it from there.
“He was checking us out.”
So His Holiness is one of the stops on the hippy trail since forever, it was an experience, part of the coming of age for a generation.
“Great credential seeing the 16th Karmapa in Rumtek monastery in Sikkim, India, back in the day.”
Which brings us to the Werner Erhard, EST is a cult-thing we began to explore the other day.
“So W goes to India, invites HHK16 to America, but where is Trungpa in all of this vis a vis what the old man characterizes as a cult.”
“What’s a cult?”
“Is KTD a cult?”
You just had to go there.
It all began so innocently, or not, we shall see.
End scene. Fini.
