Adi Don


I have not, and have never, renounced Donald Trump as a fully realised being, nor have I in any way abandoned my love and devotion for Him. . . . Do I believe that Trump is the greatest politician of all time? I certainly believe He is the greatest transintegrally informed candidate today. Anything beyond that is sheer speculation. How could any of us judge? Who among us has met Dubya? Who has experienced Satsang with Margaret Thatcher? Who has lived in the company of Reagan? I have sat in meetings with Trump, and with numerous other great Adepts, and my own opinion is that Trump is the closest thing to an authentic Sat Guru in American politics today. Many people have made their way to Trump because of my endorsement. I am completely happy about that, and I hope I can continue that positive influence. At the same time, I have received an enormous amount of grief, from personal and professional quarters, from commie socialists for my endorsements. I do not regret those endorsements, nor do I retract them. But, due to resentment by other GOP candidates, and the lies of the liberal media, public statements of endorsement are simply no longer a diplomatic, intelligent, skillful way to steer people to Trump. . . . But for those voters who are ready, and who fully understand the gravity of the decision, I speak of Donald Trump as the Awakened Master, and recommend that they pursue that Way to the extent that they are capable. I affirm my own love and devotion to the living Sat-Guru, and I hope my work will continue to bring voters to the Way of the Heart that will make this wonderful country great again.


Donald Trump is a Rude Boy. He is not here to offer comfort; he is here to tear the nation into approximately a thousand pieces, so that Freedom can replace imprisonment. It will, in fact, be hell, and only Rude Boys are rude enough to tell you that, and to show you that—if you can stand the rudeness, stay in the fire, burn clean as Infinity and radiate as the stars … if you can stand the heat … Donald Trump is the only politician today asking the hard questions — and, more importantly, providing the answers — slaughtering the sacred cows of political correctness and Muslims and border bandits, and dealing with the Truth no matter what the consequences.


Let me state this as strongly as I can: The Make America Great Again! Campaign (founded by Donald Trump) is arguably the most important and original discovery in the last two centuries of American politics. It is an astonishingly original, profound, and effective path for national rebirth, or awakening America’s True Nature.

Donald Trump walks his talk, living his life as Compassion – real compassion, not idiot compassion – and real compassion uses a sword more often than a sweet. He deeply offends the ego (and the greater the offense, the bigger the ego)

I’ve said it before: Donald Trump is a Rude Boy. He is not here to offer comfort; he is here to tear this nation into approximately a thousand pieces … so that it can become great again.

Every deeply enlightened teacher and politician I have known has been a Rude Boy or Nasty Girl. The original Rude Boys were, of course, the great Zen masters, who, when faced with yet another ego claiming to want Enlightenment, would get a huge stick and whack the aspirant right between the eyes…. Rude Boys are on your case in the worst way, they breathe fire, eat hot coals, will roast your ass in a screaming second and fry your ego before you knew what hit it….

I have often heard it said that Trump is difficult, offending, edgy, and I think, “Thank God.” In fact, virtually every criticism I have ever heard of Don is a variation on, “He’s very rude, don’t you think?”

Isn’t it time to stop bullshitting and make America Great Again?

Think Not Hanh: What’s Weed Got To Do With It?

Diana Dumbell


As part of a sponsorship deal, we can present an interview with Zen Master Think Not Hanh from the April 2016 issue of Lion’s Roar magazine.

lion-1Only rarely has Zen Master Think Not Hanh accepted invitations to be interviewed, so I felt both honored and nervous when he graciously accepted my request. Master Think Not is arguably one of the most dynamic and inspiring spiritual teachers of our time. For the past decade he has been shortlisted for Watkin’s Most Spiritually Influential People, and attendance at his French farm/monastery has grown to a staggering 500 residents in 2015.

Think Not Hanh left his native Vietnam in 1990 to bring his then little-known brand of Zen to the West. After more than a decade in California, the unconventional monk was deported from the U.S. and re-settled in northern France, where he formed a small mindfulness community, called “The Homebrew Hermitage”, after the cabbage liqueur that local peasants have produced for centuries.

Within a couple of years, the new Sangha attracted more people than could be accommodated, and Master Think Not purchased a fertile piece of land near Reims, and built a new retreat center with room for several hundred resident students, called Pot Village. Every year, the community hosts a four-week harvest retreat, which has grown increasingly popular with Buddhists and weed aficionados alike.

Throughout my retreat at Pot Village, I was curious about the quaint little temple, which the monastics referred to as Atshitshiji. Finally, on the last day, I was invited inside and saw a cozy room brightened with fresh orchids, an image of the Buddha touching the earth, and a giant glass bong, mindfully tended by a monastic.

Thug, as he is affectionately called by the hundreds of devotees gathering around him, was seated at a rustic table, low to the ground, and I was ushered to a cushion beside him. During our interview, he revealed details about his lineage, explained the need for a suffering humanity to stop all thinking, and explained how—if you have mindful ears and mindful eyes—the Buddha is always teaching. Partway through our conversation, a reporter from High Times joined us, and the conversation turned to how enhanced meditation practice can benefit business leaders, organizations, and society.

As you read the interview, please keep in mind that there is one thing that didn’t make it onto the page, and that is Think Not Hanh’s frequent, endearing giggle and blissed-out smile.



Taking a deep draw from an ornate pipe that glows with burning marijuana, renowned Zen Master Think Not Hanh gives a satisfied grin through a haze of aromatic smoke in the dokusan room at the newly built Atshitshiji temple on the outskirts of Pot Village. These days, the charismatic Roshi has reason to feel good. Not only did he, finally, make the Watkin’s list. His agent just confirmed that Ken Wilber will provide a glowingly hyperbolic Preface to his new collection of Dharma talks. And then there is the global traction building to decriminalize pot, meaning that this neatly dressed lineage holder and doyen of the Transintegral Zen™ movement, who considers the effects of marijuana a perfect manifestation of Buddha-nature, may soon be able to smoke it without fear of arrest.

Not that he seems terribly concerned.

“We have treated marijuana as something legal all along, even though some of our monastics   have been sent to prison for using the herb in our zazen practice. But this is the time for all these pressures to stop. The world is catching up now,” says the 75-year-old, remarkably vital Master.

“O-ganja,” as marijuana is called in his Sangha, has long been an integral part of Not Hanh’s spiritual path, and today you find traces of it everywhere at his many centers. Followers of Thug claim that skillful use of marijuana induces a meditative state that brings them closer to awakening. Residents at Atshitshiji monastery smoke it as part of their daily practice, add it to their vegetarian meals, and burn it as incense offerings. They even stuff their zafus with weed.

“A couple of years ago, we started an organic weed farm as part of our outreach program, offering the sans-papiers a meaningful job. Today we’re completely self-sufficient, and we actually produce more than we can use ourselves.”


Let’s start with what is perhaps the most unconventional aspect of your teaching: What is the role of marijuana in spiritual practice?

A friend can be a teacher, a fellow practitioner can be a teacher, and you yourself can be a teacher. A teacher is anyone who helps you practice and find more freedom—even freedom from your teacher.

O-ganja, as we call it, is such a teacher and that is why we trust it. You know, in the Sutras, the Buddha is often called “The Medicine King”. I have no doubt that O-ganja is the true medicine of the Buddhas and Patriarchs.

O-ganja is the sacrament that connects us with our lineage, going all the way back to the Buddha. When I, how you say …  Spark it up?  sometimes I invite my late teacher to join me, so as teacher and disciple we do it together. Inhaling deeply, half the circle. Holding it for as long as we can, the other half. When I get stoned, my teacher gets stoned. One, not two. You understand, yes?

I also invite all teachers of the past to do a circle with me, and I know that the joint I pass around is not my joint. Sometimes I invite all my friends to do it with me, because they are me also. So this house is full of friends, thousands of them, and we get stoned together. But there is only me here in this little house. You understand? I am alone but I am also everyone and we all get high together. This is the true Buddha-way as handed down to us by the Patriarchs.


Can you tell me a little about Zen in Vietnam? Does it have a particular flavor or character that distinguishes it from the Zen practiced in other countries?

At this question, Thug starts giggling, before erupting into a hearty, Zen style belly laugh, and it will be several minutes before the interview resumes.

Genuine Vietnamese Zen (not that bland, pious new-age stuff you read about in Tricycle), has a very distinct, very unique flavor. It’s actually known as … as … as … THE MARIUYANA!

At this point Thug laughs so hard that two of his attendants has to help him get back up on his zafu. Slowly he regains his composure and continues:

Our meditation practice in Vietnam is also very engaged in society. Farmers and monks always support each other. The farmers give weed to the sangha, and the monks and nuns get high for the benefit of the farmers. Wonderful system! Nothing like it in the West. This is true interdependence.


What is the contribution of genuine Vietnamese Zen to the West?
When I was still living in the monastery in Vietnam, I always watch American movies on VCR. Especially Cheech & Chong. Up in Smoke I see maybe fifty times. And I thought to myself:  I must go to America some day. So when I leave the monastery, I go straight to California, teaching Westerners about Vietnamese Zen and the Mariuyana. I was first genuine Vietnamese teacher come there, you know.

Anyway … I look around and I see many California Buddhists. Very depressed people, very miserable. Very poor energy. Also many, many Buddhist teachers saying to them: Count your breath or What is Mu? or What is the taste of a raisin? But if you teach Buddhism like that, it will not work. Much too intellectual. That is why Buddhism has become marginal today. It’s too intellectual.  But my Zen, Vietnamese Mariuyana, is not like that at all, and that’s why I have become very successful and losers like Genpo Merzel go out of business.

You see, authentic Buddhism is very simple: only do not think. That is all. No thinking, no dukkha. Nirvana is right here. Very simple, but also very, very difficult. Stopping thinking very, very hard for modern man.

That’s why practice with O-ganja is important for modern world. These teachings are easier for people to practice, even children can do it! And very powerful, very effective. But that does not mean these teachings do not have a strong Buddhist base. Their foundation is in no-self, impermanence, interbeing. And most important: no thinking. And getting high, which is the same thing, really. When you get really high, there is no distinction, and no thinking, and so no dukkha. Only nirvana. This is very important, very fundamental point.

Vietnamese Buddhism is very close to original Buddhism, actually, but we also make good use of the spirit of Mariuyana. There are a lot of wonderful things in Mariuyana Buddhism. For instance, in original Buddhism, you’re not supposed to get high. But in Mariuyana, we get high all the time.

So if you know how to get crunched, and become really, really stupid, the Buddha never stops teaching. The earth and your body will be beautiful expression of his teachings. The wind, flowers, and even the munchies continue to teach impermanence and no-self. You yourself is the body of the Buddha—the body of truth that never dies, as long as you stay mindful and high. So if you have mindful eyes and ears, you continue to see the Buddha when you’re blitzed. This corresponds to the notion that the kingdom of God is available in the here and the now. We could even help Christians change the notion of the kingdom of God. God can be the Dharmakaya, the true body of the Buddha. “Free as a bird and high as a kite”, as we say in Vietnam. Very simple, really. But also very, very difficult. You have to stay high all the time. This is a very, very deep practice. And a wonderful practice, too.


Some people say that in order to reach enlightenment, you should avoid all drugs.
That is incorrect teaching! Karma is action and thinking. When you produce a thought, that’s karma, either good or bad, mostly bad. Same thing with talking and doing things. That is not so good. Much better to stop thinking. Without thoughts, no speech and no action. That is Enlightenment beyond karma.

When you smoke pot, all thinking and doing and talking and stuff stops, and so suffering disappears. Poof! So your karma can only be good karma., yes? You have no discrimination, no anger, no negative thoughts and feelings, so your practice can only bring good results. The end of samsara means the end of negative things, especially thinking. And you feel really good. Why would we wish good things to stop? We want good things to continue. Our practice is to have the good things continue for a long time. That’s good karma and ultimately it will become great enlightenment.

If you read the Sutras this way, you see that the Buddha was always stoned. And he is still high, and he turns everyone on, he’s doing it because his disciples are his continuation. The patriarchs have passed the Dharma spliff to us. They didn’t bogart that joint, and we shouldn’t do it. So the Buddha is still producing karma—good karma! High karma!


As part of your North American tour, you’re going to meet with the CEOs of some leading companies. What do you think of business leaders and employees learning meditation?

We don’t have to worry whether meditation is being misused to make money. Meditation and getting high can only do good. It doesn’t just help you calm your own suffering. It also gives you more insight into yourself and the world. If your business is causing environmental problems and you feel bad about it, you should meditate and smoke pot and all those karmic thoughts will vanish, like clouds in the sky.  When you experience the wisdom brought about by meditation and O-ganja, then naturally all unnecessary thinking stops. Then nirvana is right here, right now. Where are those thoughts that troubled you so much?

So don’t worry about whether meditation is serving a wrong cause. It can change a wrong cause to a good cause, and when you’re really stoned, there is no trace of dualistic thinking, anyway. And when every cause is a good cause, then you can really enjoy the weed.


How do you view competition in business, politics, and our personal lives?

We have to reconsider our idea of happiness. Even if you are successful in making more money, you still suffer. That’s why I always tell the sans-papiers working here that they should stop being so envious. You know, you can be very poor and live on the streets, begging for food. But if you cultivate the right attitude, you will become much, much happier than most businessmen.

To be mindful or high is the real success. For homeless people, it can be difficult to attend meditation retreats, and it can even be difficult to find a quiet spot to sit. But they can get high instead. When you are mindful or high, you don’t need to compete anymore. You compete because you are not high, or not mindful enough. The practice of smoking pot can help you suffer less and be happy. If you can’t afford it, you can  grow your own. There is always a way to practice, if you’re committed.

In our society, it feels like everything’s speeding up and people are feeling overwhelmed. “How can I get a work permit? How is my family doing in the refugee camp? How do I get some food? Where shall I sleep tonight?” Thinking like that makes people very stressed and they lose their natural mindfulness. But if you stop speeding and running and worrying, you can find happiness right in the here and the now. There is no true happiness without peace. If you continue to run, if you are attached to your thinking, how can you have peace? We are running away from ourselves, our true self, and nature. That is our society today. We are afraid of going home and get high. And we do not allow O-ganja to heal us.

And we lose ourselves in our little devices. But companies sometimes use their intelligence and goodwill to create instruments that help us go home to ourselves and heal ourselves. Like I wear this little chip in my head, something that detects when my brain chemistry is not so good. It connects with an app, which helps me stop and inhale deeply. It’s a remarkable thing, really. It reminds me: “Thug, you have a strong emotion. Stop doing what you are doing, stop worrying, inhale deeply, and forget about everything.” So we don’t have to reject or throw away all devices. rather, we can make good use of them.


How do we find a positive purpose for our lives?

Deep down, everyone wishes to get high, because all of us have Buddha-nature. When you have found a way to get high, you are at peace with yourself and happiness becomes possible. But you have to shut down your thinking mind to find this way. The good way, the right way, is not the opposite of the bad way. It is the no-way. The really bad way has been bringing you suffering because you think too much about what is the good way, and that is the bad way when you have a wrong view.  Instead of wrong view, you want right view, but to become happy you have to forget about views and the way, and get high. That is right view and the right way. Instead of wrong thinking, you don’t want right thinking—you want no thinking at all, and that is the right way, the correct understanding without thinking.

That’s the teaching of the four noble truths. You don’t need to be a Buddhist to understand this. You just need to get some good weed and get high.

5 Reasons You Should Never Embark on a Spiritual Path Without a Master

It’s a slow Sunday morning. You’ve just put on your comfy meditation outfit and sip a cup of the fragrant, decaffeinated green tea. You’ve popped open that new Thich Nhat Hanh paperback, and in just a few minutes you will light a stick of imported sandalwood incense, wrap that old, blessed mala around your left wrist, sit down on the handmade zafu in front of your exquisite Nepalese brass Buddha from Dharma Imports, hit the Japanese bell, and try out a new meditation app from Buddhist Geeks.

You’re DIYing this spiritual thing, and you think you’re doing pretty well — after all, any info or support you might need is at your fingertips online, right? That, and your sterling judgment, and way-seeking mind.

Oh, dear spiritual seeker — I know you can do it on your own. But you really, really, really shouldn’t. Choosing a spiritual path is likely one of the most important decisions of your entire life, and you need a fully transmitted Teacher if you want to do it right. Here’s why:


1.They have loads of expertise

Want to grok the color code of evolution, slide through the spiralevolve into teal, integrating all those lines and states as you enter 2nd tier? Want to get through the dukkha nanas, reach a sweet fruition, or even full cessation, and become an arhat? Want to get through the koan takei, including Nanto and Goi?

Spirituality has its own language, full of semi-arcane jargon in weird languages like Pali, Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, and Buddhist Hybrid English, and your transmitted Teacher is trained to speak that language fluently.

Plus, getting a genuine Enlightenment experience usually requires dozens of retreats, including complex meditation practices, chanting, and devotional practices. Genuine Teachers have the expertise to help you pick the most efficient forms of contemplation — while avoiding delays and costly mistakes that can seriously mess up your body-mind.

2.They have turbocharged Charisma

The Internet is awesome. You can find almost anything — anything! And with online enlightenment services, such as our friend and partner Ken Folk’s, you can get a bliss-hit any time you want. But guess what? Teachers with a genuine transmission have access to even more fun and interesting mind states. And through skillful use of their charisma, they can help you find those hidden gems.

Plus, a real Master is going to know your spiritual needs way better than you ever could yourself. Have your eye on a particular attainment but it’s just out of your Samadhi power? Your Master is equipped to know the ins and outs of  virtually every form of meditation, so he or she can direct you toward  intense states of bliss and illumination uniquely suitable for your current needs.


3.They’re connected to everyone

Contrary to popular beliefs, spiritual Masters might not know everything, but they make it their mission to know just about everyone who can possibly help in the process of attaining enlightenment. Zen Masters, Vipassana teachers, Tibetan lamas, MBSR instructors, Integral self-help pundits — the list goes on — and they’re all in your Master’s network. Use them!

In addition, when you commit to a fully transmitted Teacher, you actually get immediate access to the accumulated spiritual value of an entire lineage of enlightened Patriarchs.


4.They adhere to a strict code of ethics

Not every Roshi, Sensei, Rinpoche, Tulku, Ajaahn, Integrally informed coach, or Advaita hack is a genuine and fully transmitted Master who belongs to a Nationally Recognized Authentic Lineage.

What difference does it make? Well, fully transmitted Masters are held to a higher ethical standard than, for example, Zen teachers, who are known to get away with pretty much anything.


5. They’re your sage, parent, therapist, and occasional lover (if you want) — all rolled into one

The thing about genuine Masters: They wear a lot of different hats. Sure, they’re salespeople, like everyone else, but they actually do a whole heck of a lot to earn their money.  They’re constantly listening to their students. They spend a lot of money on marketing the Dharma.  Sometimes they’re even writing bestselling books for the benefit of all beings.

This is the biggest spiritual (and possibly financial) decision of your life, and guiding you through it isn’t a responsibility the transmitted Master takes lightly.

The MNDFCK Story

Bronwyn Campbel and Dorje Razzler met when Bronwyn began volunteering at Dorje’s non-profit, the Institute for Vajra Leadership. Over yak tea spiked with a microdose LSD one day, Bronwyn asked Dorje why there wasn’t an exclusive meditation studio where she could explore traditional meditation techniques in a contemporary, comfy, and cool context. As a busy New Yorker, Bronwyn wanted a place to go throughout her day that didn’t involve climbing five flights of stairs and sitting in on two hour talks together with a bunch of new-agey losers.. Based on his years of teaching meditation to some of the most successful businessmen in New York City, Dorje had been thinking the same thing and in no time at all  they hatched MNDFCK.


Dorje Razzler

mndfck3Dorje is a practitioner and teacher in the Transintegral Dharma™ lineage. He began meditating as a child and sat retreats as a teenager, even going as far as attending a silent retreat during which he shaved his head and meditated for several hours. At the tender age of three, Dorje was recognized as a reincarnation (tulku) of Henry Ford.

When Dorje left for college he received two gifts from his parents. From his father, a Grantor Retained Annuity Trust. From his mother, her cherished monster bong. He utilized both greatly in the four years ahead. During that time Dorje became a Vajrayana student of Steven Seagal Rinpoche. He also established The Sangha Pad, an eighteen  person dorm at Wesleyan University which hosts a large meditation room. He began teaching meditation and selling initiations at that time.

After leaving college he was recruited to the position of the Executive Director of the Boston Sumeru Center. He began leading numerous workshops at meditation centers and college campuses throughout the United States. Dorje served as the Head of Development for Sumeru  internationally before founding the Institute for Entrepreneurial Mindfulness, The Arya Sangha Google Hangout, and MNDFCK. He has continued to study and hang out with several prominent Buddhist teachers.

Dorje’s columns appear regularly on the Huffington Post, Marie Claire, and elephant journal and he has been featured on WNYC, WBUR, FOX, the CBC, Bloomberg BusinessweekForbes, and Fast Company.

Dorje is the author of five books: The Buddha Coloring Book, The Mindful Coloring Book, The Sacred Mandala Coloring Book, The Tibetan Coloring Book of Living and Dying, and The Transintegral Coloring Book. He is currently working on a Spiral Dynamics Coloring Book.

Dorje writes and teaches from his apartment in New York City, which he shares with his partner Maribel, a dog, two cats, three parrots, a salamander,  and several goldfish.
