Picture from April 19, 2015 taken of guests at an invitation only event at KTD held for Ogyen Trinley Dorje’s supporters the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss how both Karmapas have allowed their respective Karma Kagyu sects to call for a holy war against Muslims based on their literal interpretation of the Kalachakra…
“Neither Ogyen Trinley Dorje nor Thaye Dorje have spoken out to date against their followers regarding the Kalachakra’s supposed call for a holy war against Muslims.”
“Neither Karmapa Yangsi is in a position to challenge the status quo of their respective sects as such.”
“I thought Thaye Dorje was supposed to be different.”
“Apparently not in this regard.”
“I’m against war as a matter of principle.”
“Is it enough to be against war as a matter of principle in a time of war?”
“That neither Karmapa Yangsi has spoken out on this issue is a thing for me as a Buddhist.”
“I welcome the opportunity to question both Karmapa Yangsi in all things as a matter of principle.”
“This is who I am as a Karma Kagyu.”
“It isn’t our place to question enlightened beings like they are just anyone.”
“We will just have to wait and see which Karmapa Yangsi breaks with their followers on this issue.”
End scene. Fini.
