Picture of HHDL the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss the Dalai Lama’s comments about people praying to God for divine intervention in the aftermath of the Paris attacks…
“So we have a new context for us to consider Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s non-response to the Paris attacks.”
“We’re at the edge of our seats.”
“There is a down side to how His Holiness is always available for comment.”
“Here’s my thing.”
“Ogyen Trinley Dorje is thirty years old.”
“HHDL is eighty years old.”
“Nobody told me there would be math.”
“It seems odd that we have the eighty year old Dalai Lama putting his foot in his mouth.”
“And the thirty year old Ogyen Trinley Dorje being wise beyond his years.”
“I agree with His Holiness.”
“I may find praying to a higher power as a response to a tragedy problematic.”
“I’m a Buddhist.
“Praying to God isn’t a thing for us.”
“But I know better than to criticize people for praying to their God for divine intervention in the aftermath of a tragedy.”
“I like that Ogyen Trinley Dorje has proven himself wise beyond his years in his non-response to the Paris attacks.”
End scene. Fini.
