Picture of the Tibetans who got Ogyen Trinley Dorje out of occupied Tibet which the old man instagramed to illustrate this performance by the Naropa Prairie Dogs in which they discuss what to make of the repatriation of the Traleg line of Tulkus to the very same place we are supposed to believe His Holiness escaped over fifteen years ago
It’s a gorgeous autumn day here in Chicago.
The radiators are on.
The old man likes the sound they make.
It’s so Chicago.
“I very much doubt Traleg Rinpoche’s students have any issue with Ogyen Trinley Dorje repatriating the Traleg line of Tulkus to Thrangu monastery in occupied Tibet.”
“They know the monastic seat for the Traleg line of Tulkus is Thrangu monastery, I don’t see how it is a monastery in China really matters to them as Australians.”
“After Rangjung Rikpe Dorje died we deferred to Tibetans and I suspect the same thing is happening in Australia at this point.”
“We made the trip to Tsurphu when Ogyen Trinley Dorje was enthroned, it was the trip of a lifetime.”
“That was with your second husband.”
Perhaps the old man has the wrong end of the stick and Traleg Rinpoche’s students don’t think it their place to have a say in such matters.
“The more I get into who Traleg Rinpoche was as a person, the life he made for himself in Australia.”
“It just doesn’t feel right what Ogyen Trinley Dorje has done by repatriating the Traleg line of Tulkus to Thrangu Monastery in Occupied Tibet.”
“If he really did escape occupied Tibet I can’t see him condemning another child to the same fate as he was as a child.”
When Ogyen Trinley Dorje escaped Thrangu monastery in occupied Tibet and showed up at the doorstep of HHDL in India the old man took it as a sign.
He thought it confirmed his belief that Ogyen Trinley Dorje was indeed destined to follow in footsteps of Rangjung Rikpe Dorje.
“That was over fifteen years ago though.”
End scene. Fini.
