His Holiness, the Surrealist South American Ungulate

just_the_ash clarifies some notes on a film reccomendation in a Buddhist LJ community, that could have otherwise lead to accusations of false advertising. ;)

In a thread about Buddhist-related movies, a commenter enthusiastically recommended Martin Scorsese's movie Kundun, which she said concerned the boyhood and escape into India of the current "Dali Llama."

I have seen that movie. It is, I agree, quite good. There are no surrealist South American ungulates in it. There are, in fact, no surrealist South American ungulates in the entire hierarchy of the dGe lugs pa sect of Vajrayana Buddhism. If they were going to ordain any hoofed animal, they would ordain a yak.
