Was OTD at KTD the day David Bowie died in Woodstock, New York?

Picture of David Bowie who passed away on Sunday, January 10, 2016 in Woodstock, New York, the old man instagramed to illustrate this episode of Pulp Buddhism in which the Naropa Prairie Dog Players discuss whether or not this had anything to do with rumors that OTD was at KTD on the very same day of his passing…

Virginia replies.

“David Bowie was a very private person so if there is a connection between the two appearances it is none of our business.”

Allen replies.


Jonathan replies.

“It would be fitting if there was a connection though.”

Sally replies.

“How so?”

Caroline replies.

“In 1967, as the story goes, David Bowie visited Chogyam Trungpa at Samye Ling in Scotland with the intention of becoming a monk.”

Allen replies.

“And Rinpoche advised him to pursue his career as a musician instead, again, as the story goes.”

Jonathan replies.

“Talk about auspicious coincidences.”

Virginia replies.

“It is unlikely that the increased security noted at KTD by a reader at the time in question had
anything to do the passing away of David Bowie at his home in Woodstock.”

Sally replies.

“Apparently David Bowie spent his final days, reportedly, at his home there.”

Sally continues.

“Given his history with Samye Ling as a young man I’m fascinated by the possibility that he may have somehow taken advantage of his proximity to KTD at the end of his life.”

Virginia replies.

“How poetic, unlikely, but poetic.”

Virginia pauses.

“I like it better than the suggestion that His Holiness was at KTD for a secret board meeting.”

Virginia replies.

“Or that OTD was at KTD for the young Tulku that is supposedly being raised there as also has been suggested here.”

End scene. Fini.

    No, he wasn’t there, but I’m sure he was cranking up some Rebel Rebel, Space Oddity, and Life on Mars live everyone else.
