Picture of Bryan Cranston as Walter White in Breaking Bad which the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss whether or not Samsara is really as bad as the Buddha taught us it was in the sutras….
“I taught myself how to read Tibetan.”
“Was that really necessary?”
“It was just him.”
“I wanted to know what Rinpoche had me reciting.”
“There was no translation of the text available?”
“I wanted my own translation.”
“He had his eye on a copy of a Tibetan dictionary at the Occult Bookstore.”
“My Chandra Das.”
“Rinpoche started him off with the Green Tara Sadhana.”
“My first ever empowerment.”
“He thought it auspicious that this book had appeared for him to purchase just when he needed to have it for his dharma practice.”
“Print is dead.”
“I beg to differ.”
“I have many a fond memory associated with that dictionary.”
“According to Trungpa nostalgia for samsara is nothing but a load of bullshit, his words.”
“You say that like samsara is a bad thing.”
“I didn’t see that coming.”
“According to the sutras…”
End scene. Fini.
