Is Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche ready to go back into retreat yet?

Picture of Nepal the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss the suggestion that after the attacks in Paris Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche must be ready to go back into retreat…

Caroline begins.

“If you were in retreat you would not know what happened the other day in Paris.”

Virginia replies.

“Okay, you’ve got my attention.”

Virginia continues.

“It really depends on who your retreat master is.”

Sally replies.

“I can only imagine.”

Sally continues.

“I bet Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is ready to go back into retreat about right now.”

Caroline replies.

“I’ll take that bet.”

Virginia replies.

“On 9/11 he would have already have experienced all the emotions he is experiencing in the aftermath of the attacks in Paris the other day.”

Sally replies.

“Why go into retreat then?.”

Allen replies.

“To work on his chill.”

Virginia replies.

“He wasn’t on vacation.”

Virginia continues.

“In retreat Rinpoche rested in the true nature of his mind under circumstances that other than in retreat he otherwise would not have had the opportunity to do so.”

Allen replies.

“I just said that.”

End scene. Fini.
