Ldab ldob

"Some aggressive young monks, as much as 10 percent of the population in the larger monasteries, become Ldab ldob. These seeming anti-monks take monastic vows, live in a monastery, and wear monkish dress, albeit in some distinctive ways; they are also recognizable because they do not shave their heads completely (retaining a lock of hair behind each ear that is wrapped around the ear), visibly carry weapons, and wear eye shadow to appear more ferocious. Harrer added that they wear red armbands, stick a huge (often knife-sharp) key in their belts, blacken their faces with soot, walk with a "provocative" gait, and "are quick to strike." [...]
"According to Goldstein('s informants) homosexuality "carries an extremely derogative stigma and is almost unknown" in the lay population of Tibet. Ldab ldob, however, have a general reputation for sexual relationships with boys."

These seeming anti-monks take monastic vows...

...and then break them all, apparently. Success!

Also: ...and wear eye shadow to appear more ferocious.

Aha! Much like the Gaythiopian Lion over here.

my question: how does this relate to, say, hedonistic-ascestism? (essentially the /opposite/ of what we typically understand asceticism to be...)

Maxims and minims for the wise and the foolish

  • LANGUAGE IS A HIERARCHICAL AUTHORITY
    A GOVERNMENT OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS — Tezcatlipoca
  • Whoever fights against the empire, becomes the empire. [or something along those lines] — Philip K. Dick [as told to Tezcatlipoca]
    • We’re not fighting the empire! We are the empire! Go away, or we'll smack you with this stick! — Tezcatlipoca
  • You don't have to be straight to shoot straight. — Barry Goldwater
    • Indeed, we must prevent life, which is frequently fatal. — Umunmutamku
      • There are also a number of legitimate scientific reasons for it as well (though I don't know what they are) — Tezcatlipoca
  • Instead of thinking of Scripture as a manual, I try to think of the Bible as ‘a boyfriend’. — punkrainbow
    • Your feelings are lying to you. — Jer 17:9
  • READ A BOOK, I'M SURE IT'S IN ONE OF THEM. — Tezcatlipoca
    • Books are full of bullshit and lies! — Tezcatlipoca
      • We will lie to you but we will lie to ourselves as well. You will, however, see through our lies and grasp the shining truth within. — The KLF
  • A Gnostic is by definition a knower, and since knowledge supersedes belief, a knower cannot very well be a believer. — Stephan A. Hoeller
    • talking about the great unknown is ridiculous. it’s THE GREAT UN-FUCKING-KNOWN — Anonymous
      • The enemy knows the system. — Claude Shannon
