    That’s terrible.

    I have no words.

    Get some rest, there is still quite a fight ahead of you if you want to advance the retirement of OTD as the head of the Karma Kagyu.

    May the long life goddesses bless you, Bill.

    My basic goodness, what a shame. Best wishes for a quick recovery of the heart attack! Gerd

    You are a practitioner of mahamudra.

    You are not easily phased.


    Rest up and keep up the great work. You are certainly up to something that scares the rank-and-file. This is important.

    Honestly, it might be, or it might be something along those lines. Its not at all that I think Vajradhara or Milarepa or Trungpa Rinpoche or the lineage in general would be wanting to pull the trigger on you, but if you are ruffling enough feathers, then sorcery might be in play. Here’s to a speedy recovery.

    • SB,

      For two minutes and thirty seconds this morning I was as close to death as a person can be and live to to talk about the experience.

      It was incredible.

      I’m in the ICU presently, it has been a long day.

      I’ve been asked repeatedly today in the hospital the same question.

      “Did you lose consciousness?”

      I did not.

      I meditated through it all, all thanks to the blessings of the Karma Kagyu lineage, and my guru, Khenpo Karthar.

      I came through with flying colors as a dharma practitioner.

      This isn’t my first heart attack.

      After I survived the widow maker in 2009 Khenpo Karthar did me the honor of bowing to me when I recounted for him what it was like for me.

      I did Rinpoche proud, yet again.

      Lama Kate is a creature of a Khenpo Karthar I know nothing of as his disciple.

      She and her ilk give this Khenpo Karthar money and in return he gives them permission to call themselves a lama of the Karma Kagyu sect.

      It’s a shameful practice and the sooner we can put an end to it the better.

      Three years at Karma Ling does not make you a lama.

      The blessings of the lineage are not for sale but must be earned as I have done so myself through daily practice not in retreat but in the world of the appearance of things from which I have realized them to be none other than the true nature of my mind.

    Glad you are keeping your spirits up! I would eat a lot of avocados if I were you. Check these foods that are said to unclog arteries: http://www.davidwolfe.com/10-foods-unclog-arteries/
