"Who’s the most progressive Lama in exile? I can’t hear you!"
Can Hillary Clinton prove herself worthy of shepherding sentient beings across countless kalpas of confusion to the nirvana of total awakening? She might wanna bone up on the Four Nobe Truths, ’cause the current Dalai Lama claims he’s got no problem with a woman becoming the most holy figure in Tibetan Buddhism. And she doesn’t have to be from Tibet, either. From the Buddhist Channel:
"If a woman reveals herself as more useful the lama could very well be reincarnated in this form," the 14th Dalai Lama told reporters in Milan, where he arrived for a private visit on Wednesday.
The Contrarian Media Group was unable to reach Clinton for comment.
The Dalai Lama’s feminist declaration comes hot on the heels of his pronouncement that he may upend centuries of tradition by placing the Lama-pickin’ before a popular vote.
This guy is just plain awesome.
