MIT Hires Buddhist Chaplain

monk with ibook

An interesting article about MIT’s new Buddhist chaplain:

Tenzin Priyadarshi’s path to becoming a Buddhist monk began when he was just 10 and he ran away from home in pursuit of the recurring “vision” he saw in his dreams of a monastery and an old man.

Tenzin, who grew up in an upper-class Hindu family of intellectuals and bureaucrats, slipped away from his boarding school one morning with the equivalent of $5 in his pocket. He left a note for his parents that he was embarking on a “spiritual quest.”

After a 24-hour train ride, he found himself at the foot of a mountain in Rajgir, India. It was at the top of that mountain where he found the very same monastery he had seen in his dreams, he said. He recognized the face of one of the monks who greeted him as the same man he had seen in his vision.

Totally used me for money all along the way…always said he would pay me back with some bullshit that he was going toget a lot of money from an investment in Colorado.

  3. Also forgot to mention his suppossed High Level Father who is supposedly a Minister in India which he conveniently name drops is actually listed on numerous Indian corruption and fraud sites. Now we get to see on this site he believes he is some kind of remarkable spirtual teacher too?
