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…
“David Bowie was a very private person so if there is a connection between the two appearances it is none of our business.”
“It would be fitting if there was a connection though.”
“In 1967, as the story goes, David Bowie visited Chogyam Trungpa at Samye Ling in Scotland with the intention of becoming a monk.”
“And Rinpoche advised him to pursue his career as a musician instead, again, as the story goes.”
“Talk about auspicious coincidences.”
“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.”
“Apparently David Bowie spent his final days, reportedly, at his home there.”
“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.”
“How poetic, unlikely, but poetic.”
“I like it better than the suggestion that His Holiness was at KTD for a secret board meeting.”
“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.
