There is word going around here that the Dalai Lama is going to attend the long life puja the villagers are doing up at Namgyal tomorrow. I don’t believe it. How impossible would that be? Seeing the Karmapa AND the Dalai Lama? I couldn’t … can’t… it’s amazing. Walked around Dharamsala a little, and it just seems so… comfortable. I don’t know. I just… I like it here. Sure, I’m a little ‘different’, but luckily for me, at least a couple of people ‘get’ that here. I think most of us are changing… and visibly. Several aren’t–which surprises me. How one can come somewhere so… unbelievable and stay stoically the same. Like a rock.
