Picture of Ogyen Trinley Dorje the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss the possibility that the Karmapa’s silence is actually his response to the Paris attacks…
“Ogyen Trinley Dorje is the 17th Gyalwa Rinpoche, my root guru.”
“Let this be a teachable moment for us in the West.”
“Are you suggesting that His Holiness is teaching us a lesson.”
“It is worth noting that Tibet sat out both WWI and WWII.”
“I just don’t know what lesson the Karmapa could be teaching us.”
“You’ve lost me.”
“Think of it as a Buddhist virtue.”
“His Holiness is modeling for us an affect of resignation in the face of the shortcomings of samsara.”
“This is Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s statement in response to the Paris attacks.”
“Turn the mind to the dharma.”
“Typical lama talk.”
“I don’t know what to think.”
End scene. Fini.
