I have been very disappointed by the Dalai Lama in the past couple of years. Actually, I have no respect for the man whatsoever. Why, because of the way he presents himself in the media. He has totally reduced whatever higher consciousness he had, if any, by becoming a media darling and letting himself be courted and touted by shallow celebrities. As far as I'm concerned the Dalai is just another empty title. I sincerely hope there are people in the world who are mystics in the higher or true sense of the word, in the spirit of Meister Eckhart or Teresa of Avila or the great Hindus, Buddhas, or Moslems who had absolutely no interest in fame or celebrity, or the trappings of Western civilization.
As far as meat goes, perhaps it is a deterrent to true mysticism; but it appears to me that flash, tinsel, and money is worse.
