I addressed this Dalai Lama reincarnation issue over a year ago. Whether he is talking obliquely about him reaching NIRVANA or whether he is just playing politics (as he is WONT to do) the Dalai Lama really has no say as to whether reincarnation, per Buddhism, happens or does NOT happen. His statement about it possibly being ‘voluntary’ is sheer, utter bunkum! I have talked about reincarnation in this blog — before. It is a subject I do know quite a lot about and have devoted a lot of mental energy thinking about.

Let’s PLEASE get one thing straight about this Dalai Lama. He is NOT the Buddhist equivalent of the Pope. He is not even the equivalent of the Archbishop of Canterbury. He is, at best, equivalent to the Patriarch of Alexandria. There are about 490 Million Buddhists worldwide (and I am not one of them). The Dalai Lama ONLY represents the at most 20 Million ‘Tibetan’ Buddhists and at least 40% of these are WESTERN cafeteria Buddhist who believe Buddhism is all about meditation, yoga and avoiding beef. So, the Dalai Lama has no authority (unlike say the Pope) to talk about Buddhist dogma or doctrine. This Dalai Lama is really nothing but a Western celebrity — the Ben Carson of Buddhism.

Though not a Buddhist now, I find it wrong when the Dalai Lama tries to, using his media creds, to mess with very fundamental Buddhist precepts. To me it is like Donald trump saying that there was no Virgin Birth (and that he would know). China is right. The Dalai Lama should stop talking about reincarnation and just do what he is best at doing — making money for himself.

Yes, there are 3 separate Orgasm-related holidays.

Yes, we had ‘National Orgasm Day‘ on July 31.
This is a DIFFERENT holiday — with an emphasis on Worldwide PEACE.

So more special & significant this year than ever.

OK. Here, I explained it all in my “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia” book.

Yes, I will confess. It is becoming a BLUR even for me! I have to, nearly every day, step back for a second in my mind, to work out which book I am working on right now and what is happening to the others.

Yes, I have published 6 eBooks this year — and with this paperback, one traditional, good ol’ fashioned real, printed on paper, book.

Another real book, the paperback of the ‘Last 10 Conclaves‘ is in the work, at 85% done — and a large eBook, about an intriguing asteroid, is 80% done. Yes, I am multitasking. I work on one one day and the other the next, just to make things difficult for my brain.

I don’t like eBooks! I will never read an eBook! But, eBooks are supposedly the future and I have no choice but to do them. Now that I know how to churn them, I will admit that they are trivial to produce! And that is why I hate them. eBooks by nature and design have to have ‘no’ formatting. It is essential straight text, with some headings and a Table of Contents (and Word does that automatically for me). I resent the lack of formatting. I love painstakingly formatted printed books with tables, sidebars, embedded text boxes and lots of images.

So it was gratifying to publish a paperback — my first in 18 months.

So, of the 17 sole-author books I have 12 are available in paperback. 15 are available as eBooks. I think that is right. It gets bad when you can’t keep track of the books you have. This happened to me with my publications. I assiduously kept track of my first 250 publications — because that was my goal. I hit 250 in early 1998, after 10 years of writing like a crazy man (sometimes getting up to 7 -8 articles printed in different publications a month). Then I became lax at keeping track. Since I continued to publish till about 1997, I know that I wrote at least another 150, but I have no idea of my complete opus. Doesn’t matter. Google Books has tracked down many of them. So I am cool. They have 3,290 records for my name! Well, even I know I wasn’t that prolific, but I do get quoted by others and Google lists those too.

Check out my 1st publication in 1978. That is the genesis of those dreaded ‘type in your license code‘ software authorization schemes you encounter today with Microsoft, Adobe and others. That was my idea. But, I was working for IBM and they, quite rightly, had total rights to it. I have no regrets.
