What is the Karma Kagyu project?

Picture of Ogyen Trinley Dorje doing his thing the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss what they think the Karma Kagyu project is…

Virginia replies.

“Our project as Karma Kagyu is to preserve Karma Kagyu tradition for future generations of Karma Kagyu.”

Caroline replies.

“I beg to differ.”

Sally replies.

“The 16th Karmapa came here to preserve Tibetan tradition?”

Sally adds.

“Why here?”

Jonathan replies.

“It served our government’s interests.”

Jonathan pauses.

“It was the Cold War.”

Jonathan continues.

“China’s Tibetan exile community, of which the 16th Karmapa was a leader, was an American peoject of.”

Jonathan adds.

“This was the relationship we had with His Holiness and his people up until he died in 1981.”

Caroline replies.

“What I take issue with is the conflation of the Karma Kagyu sect with the Karma Kagyu lineage.”

Virginia replies.

“The Karma Kagyu sect and the Karma Kagyu sect are one in the same thing.”

Caroline replies.

“Is the Karma Kagyu lineage a thing to you?”

Caroline pauses.

“It isn’t for me.”

End scene. Fini.
