Dat zou ook kunnen, ja

Ik hang al tijden niet meer rond op E-Sangha, wegens teveel roddel, achterklap en fanboys die precies weten wat hun heilige Lama Yogi Dorje Pema Rinpoche Tulku (een authentieke wrathful mahasiddha) bedoelt met elke wind die hij laat, maar soms logt men per ongeluk nog's in en komt iets vet tofs tegen. Zoals deze anecdote van ene Hermit Yeshe Dorje:
Once an American, who was a former member of Trungpa's vajradhatu sangha, was studying with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. Tulku Urgyan had just given an entire seminar of students the Pointing Out Instructions and other meditation advice up at Nagi Gompa. This American explained to Chokyi Nyima an elaborate plan for setting up big tents for people to sleep under and to provide meals and so forth in the future so that the event could become more sophisticated and draw bigger crowds and charge more money.

Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche listened to the entire intricately detailed plan and then said, "Yes, we could do that. Then again, we could just sit back, relax and see what happens!"
