NOTE: Just for the heck of it, I thought I'd GOOGLE the name of the gentleman whose "traveling companion" I was for about 12 years, that I tell of in the story below - "From Hollywood to Hopiland"
His full name was David Monongye. But he preferred that we call him "Grampa David". I'm sure the people who run the company shown in this ad meant well... But on a T- Shirt? This man was revered when he was alive... Not as a god, but as an example of what humans can be ... kind, compassionate, and wise.
Another friend of mine from the past, the world-renowned spiritual teacher J. Krishnamurti - who was also famous for his shunning of the word "Guru" and all it stood for - was once asked by a well-known Professor of Comparative Religions: "But Sir, isn't there an old tradition in India that is known as 'Satsang' ?" To which JK replied: "Do you know what the word 'Satsang' means?" The Professor answered: "Association with the wise". But JK corrected him : "That's not what it means ... It means 'association with the good'... First you are good THEN you are wise...."
So it just seems odd to me that we should reward good people for "being good" by putting them on a T-shirt, rather than by living their example.
