On the blog maintained by Cassidy under the pseudonym “Tulku Tenpa Rinpoche” he posted the following yesterday:
You can see he begins by saying that he was in Washington D.C. and reported that it was hot and humid. Reports in from Maryland and D.C. indicate the weather there has been unusually pleasant for the past few weeks. Here is the forecast for tomorrow as objective evidence (obviously overnight weather won’t give an idea of the daytime temps):
Weather for Washington, DC on 7-8-09
Additionally he mentions specifically Bridge Street Books. Reports from local area residents indicate the bookstore has not been air conditioned–at least not the past few days—and a quick check with the bookstore indicated that they do not carry the book he mentioned. Though these points may seem trivial, we are sharing them to highlight the fact that this man cannot be trusted. He could easily have checked a weather report if he wanted to pretend he was in D.C., but instead he relies on his reader’s trust and says whatever he thinks sounds convincing. Please be warned, this man cannot be trusted. Please read everything on his blog with that understanding, do not fall for false Dharma!
