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…
“If you were in retreat you would not know what happened the other day in Paris.”
“Okay, you’ve got my attention.”
“It really depends on who your retreat master is.”
“I can only imagine.”
“I bet Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is ready to go back into retreat about right now.”
“I’ll take that bet.”
“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.”
“Why go into retreat then?.”
“To work on his chill.”
“He wasn’t on vacation.”
“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.”
“I just said that.”
End scene. Fini.
