Picture of Adam Yauch and Dalai Lama the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism which has the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discussing the politics of Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s faction of the Karma Kagyu sect
The old man has a snow lion tattooed on his neck.
“I’m not a big fan of his neck tattoo.”
“It makes him look like a Hells Angel.”
This is apparently a thing in Quebec.
The old man’s mother had a cow.
She refused to be seen in public with him when he visited St Bruno.
“Rock on, grandpa.”
“I can only imagine what his son’s bride’s family made of him at the wedding.”
They’re from South Carolina.
“The idea of a Free Tibet was a thing for his generation.”
The Beastie Boys, Ill Communication, Sabotage.
“I never understood the connection between the Beastie Boys and the Dalai Lama.”
“The Vinaya prohibits singing and dancing.”
“Rinpoche just got back from visiting Thrangu monastery.”
“I want to know how that is possible.”
“Rinpoche accepts that Tibet is part of China.”
“And all the better for it.”
The old man never understood this.
“He’s all about Thrangu monastery.”
“Rinpoche is a practical man.”
“So am I.”
The old man thinks HHDL made a mistake when he signed off on China’s approval of Ogyen Trinley Dorje as its choice for 17th Karmapa.
“Credit, or blame Akong Rinpoche, depending on your politics.”
End scene. Fini.
