Indian govt employee declares himself reincarnation of Vishnu, skips work to go to '5th dimension'
This dude (see article) sounds like he obviously did not have right view. A lot of people like to poo-poo the idea of right view, but let's be clear on what happens when we do that. This is what happens. Insanity. Buddha(s) found the right view and gave it to us. Now each of us has the job to verify it for ourselves to rid ourselves of insanity.
Btw, although Buddha did not seem to teach us to "laugh at our mind" -- I have found this to be particularly helpful for me anyway, and probably for most people who maybe are not as serious about enlightenment as Buddha or his monks. In other words, lay people with families that they love passionately. Yes, Buddha, the family will go away and it is all just suffering, but let's forget that for a bit so we can enjoy and help each other slowly get to the goal of no self (this is more like Mahayana philosophy).
Anyways, I think maybe the funniest quote I ever heard might be:
"If you don't sin, then Jesus died for nothing."
Please. Do not take that to mean you should sin. I am so sad that there are people that will take it that way. It's a joke.
"One joke I always liked was about the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac who stayed up all night wondering if there was a Dog."
