Exiting the Vehicle

Along with millions of other loyal Americans, I recently watched, enthralled, as the immaculate reincarnation of Terton Chungdrag Dorje enforced the criminal code of the great State of Louisiana on his wildly successful reality television series, Lawman.

In one memorable scene, Rinpoche rushed to the open door of a stopped automobile, violently pulled out a recalcitrant black man by the scruff of his neck, and dashed him to the ground, screaming, "When we tell you to get out of the f**king car, get out of the f**king car!" This was of course done to the highest possible standard of police professionalism, arising from a wellspring of bodhicitta.

I want to emphasize that Rinpoche was not acting. This was filmed while he was carrying out his duties, under color of authority, as a duly sworn and credentialed peace officer in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana.

One cannot render opinion on the sublime play of the three bodies, or six cops and one suspect, as the case may be. Rinpoche understands this quite naturally, so he works with whatever testosterone arises at the time.

Isn't it wonderful....

What else is he suppose to do he is a Tibetan Buddhist Lama. Buddhism is only for males, unless you are Tara then you can show your bossoms. Emptiness is empty, so they claim.

I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate this sterling example of Right Speech.

I don't care about the TV series, "Lawman", and didn't know it existed until you decided to offer this comment.

Dropping your RSS feed as of now.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
the falcon cannot hear the falconer;
things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
the best lack all conviction, while the worst
are full of passionate intensity.
