Poll: Does Yeshe need a barber?

Postby Su DongPo » Sun Dec 12, 2010 2:38 am

OK, it's not a real poll. That was just a cheap ploy to get your attention. :tongue:

I have been admiring Yeshe's most recent avatar (if you've followed him for a while you will know he has a stunning array of images). I rather like this striking one:

I am thinking it's an American Indian, Lakota look.

Who is in this photo? What does it represent?

Wonderful! I knew there had to be a good story behind this fellow. I admit I am not brave enough to make waves but I admire people who challenge conventions, especially when they have good cause.

Eccentrics widen our circle: he was a Chartist -- how mild the Chartist demands seem to us now but they are the foundation for most of our civil societies. He was a vegetarian: who reading this would question such scruples today? As a doctor he refused to treat smokers: I have compassion for smokers, but how prescient was this stance in Victorian Britain? I want to be cremated, as does my wife. I have never considered that such practices were illegal in Britain, but of course they would have run counter to the predominant traditions.

Bravo, Dr. Price! :bow:

I had never heard of this person before. Thank you for educating me.

I hereby declare December 12th, 2010, Dr. William Price Memorial Day at Dharma Wheel. :woohoo:
