Autumn 05 Cover: First ever known picture of the Dalai Lama, the great Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, age three.

Via on Oct 1, 2008

OUR COVER- From elephant autumn 2005.

Five years back, a childhood friend of Waylon, Markell Kiefer, asked him to write a play about Chögyam Trungpa, the great Tibetan Buddhist meditation master. He did so. After she added a few scenes and a ton of edits, she directed the play several times to rave reviews in NY society press. Then, a few years ago, she asked Waylon to write one on the Dalai Lama, the great Tibetan Buddhist meditation master. He did so. After she added a few scenes and a ton of edits, she directed the play several times to rave reviews in NY society press. Thanks to additional finetuning courtesy of some of her fancy playwright friends and the authentic power of Markell’s vision—you know how it is when you see someone doing exactly what they ought to be doing?—the ‘Buddha Prince’ ain’t half-bad.

    Here’s an interesting story about how the 14th Dalai Lama was found. You’re not likely to hear about this in Boulder. :)

  2. Thank you for the Gossip Lobsang. It reads like a news tabloid article, I was suprized not to find a mention of Paris Hilton and how the Dalai Lama secretly left all of the ethical and moral decisions of his life to a small chiwawa named Frankie Yeshe Dorje…

    I am sure there is something true in the article, it seems that many of the reincarnations are chosen for political reasons (never the twain shall meet…) however my teacher has always recommended, as has my common sense. To look at the qualities of a persons, body, speech and mind as evidenced by their actions. I think that the Dalai Lama has proven himself a very compassionate, kind and ethical spiritual leader, so I chose to take the good and bad opinions with that little pinch of salt.
    Anyway, peace out to the Shugden crew, may your temporomandibular joints never tire.
