Re: claim about Fifth Dalai Lama

Yeah the correction doesn’t indicate what Malcom’s point
was: that in the context of a communication with a dharmapala

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

Yeah, well... At least CTR didn't try to poison a whole county... As a point of information, I believe Shee...

(Not sure of the exact time he left the state of tukdam so will update once that’s clarified) Now that his meditation i...

CTR had a highly developed sense of fun. He also sent himself up frequently. As well as not taking various elements of Buddhist customs over- seriously. If he declared so and so to be a 'tulku' the possibility that he was making a point about others taking things too seriously should not be discoun...

While the letter does not specify, I am in agreement that it was most likely inspired by the intensity of the attacks on social media directed at Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, which were in response to a number of his own posts, beginning with the one he made about Sogyal. That said, it's open ended a...
