Boy… I am sure am shocked that a lot of dumb people are being so serious that Coco is ripping off Book of Life when it’s NOT! Also I am still hoping this will be the better PIXAR film of year than (uggh) Cars 3. Also in fact I will think Coco will be way better than Book of Life because looking at the trailers for it, Coco won’t try to have painful modern talk or songs and a miscast Ice Cube in it. It will tell a nice original story about a already done idea in a new way and with nice animation/art and not relaying on modern culture to be hip.
What I find is that Rigpa is stating that the letter itself is a cause of suffering and not the actions that accumulated over decades until we students felt it irresponsible not to bring this to a level where it could be heard once and for all. Sogyal Lakar has remained undetered from his “lifestyle” which he feels is nobodies business but his own for a long time even though it has brought on many public efforts to expose the clear imbalance of power and sexual demands of students which are by their nature a system of abuse. The stories that come do not sound like experienced students engaged in some kind of pure ritual of tantric nature. They are stories of someone who has such high views that he feels he can do anything and just assume it benefits anyone he does it to harmful or not because he professes to only do it with the intention to help. The more excuses and distractions come the worse this looks and I hope it is all resolve by confronting the bad actor and not by using his resources as a kind of public legal defense fund because he fears prosecution.
