I’ve met hundreds of sages and wizards, shamans and gurus, rinpoches and tulkus, ajahns, roshis and senseis, priests and monks, and even a couple of popes. I’ve played golf with HHDL and ping-pong with Deepak. I’ve been at 48-hour rave parties with Ken, trashed hotel rooms with Andrew, and visited whorehouses all over with the Catskill Zen johns. John Lennon gave me his autograph when I was 12, and once I had a drink with Prince Philip. But this was the greatest moment.
