the late 70's Gordon was driving to New Jersey from Florida. He was driving up
with a friend named Gary Rodgers. While it was Gordon's turn to drive, he
noticed Gary reading a book and asked him what was he reading. Gary said it is a
book about weird places and happenings in all of the states. He said in New
Jersey the have the first sighting ever by a white man of big foot.
call him the Jersey Devil and he lives in the Pine Barrens, and is seen ever
year. They now have a hockey team named after him.
Gary read on he came to a page that said there is a town called Howell
Township where there are at least 200 Mongolians living there. They came from
Tibet and they have four Tibetan Temples there. Gary asked if we could go by
there and so they went.
they arrived at the first temple, a little Tibetan priest came out of the house
and greeted them. They said they wanted to see inside of the Temple and the
little man took them in. It was real colorful, and when they came out, Gordon
said to the priest, now show me where the Lama lives. The Priest first said
there was no Lama, but Gordon said he was a psychic and there is a Lama and he
must show him where he lives. So the Priest told him.
they arrived at the Lama's house, no one answered the door. So Gordon walked
around the back of the house, it was a split level house and he noticed a fifty
gallon drum by the back wall. He climbed up on it and pulled himself up to a
window, there he was face to face with a very large man who angrily said what
are you doing. Gordon was unfazed and said he must open the front door and speak
man was 6'5" and muscular. He said that the Lama was in New York and not
home. Gordon looked at him and proclaimed that the Lama was home and somewhere
in the house. The disciple said he would look, but was sure he wasn't home.
came back to the Kitchen and said that he was not home, and Gordon immediately
said that he was home and in fact was looking through a peep hole in the wall at
him. He said he was not going to leave until the Lama came out.
the Lama came out. Ha, ha.
was a very little man, even shorter than Gordon who is only 5"2". He
spoke to his disciple and said in Tibetan, what do we want and who are we. I
told him that I was a psychic and Gary was my friend. Gary had a question to ask
him first. He wanted to know if Tuesday Lobsang Rampa was for real? (Rampa) was a
writer now living in Canada at the time anyway, and was supposed to be
originally from Tibet. He was supposed to be a Tibetan Lama.
the Lame said he heard of him, but that was all he knew about him.
he asked the disciple what Gordon was there for. Gordon looked at him and
said he will not talk to him through an interpreter, he would have to speak in
English, and the Lama laughed and said ok. What did Gordon want?
Gordon did not know what he was there for, so he told the Lama he read Auras.
The Lama said fine, read my Aura.
stared at him momentarily and then made a shocking statement. He said, In three
months the 14th Dali Lama was going to come to this tiny town to visit him
personally and he must be prepared to meet him. The Lama said that the Dali
Lama never left India, and Gordon replied, He is now, he will be here in
September. The Lama said that was a powerful message and he would be prepared.
then asked his disciple to show Gordon and Gary the Temple. When they went
inside, Gordon asked the disciple if there were certain steps to take
while inside and he said yes. Gordon said that he would like to try it,
if he was going to make a wrong step, would he stop him. He said yes. And when
Gordon was done, he said how did I do? The disciple said you did real well,
except you missed a step. You missed the thirteenth step. Gordon said no, there
are only twelve steps and he did them all.
disciple decided to let the Lama tell him, because he was insistent that there
were only twelve. When the confronted the Lama, he looked up and said, Oh yes,
when Gordon was a Lama, about 300 years ago, there was only twelve steps, now
there are thirteen. He gave Gordon an autographed book in Tibetan I might add
and it went like this:" From one Lama to the next Lama"
months later while traveling in New Jersey once again, the New York Daily News
had as a headline story. The 14th Dali Lama is coming to New York, and they
listed the itinerary, he was supposed to go to NY, Toronto, and then California.
Howell Twsp was not on the list. But the next day they made a correction, the
Dali Lama was now going to a town in New Jersey to visit with a Lama there. Is
this spiritualism at it's best? or what? Was Gordon led to this town, and is
there a connection with the Dali Lama? He tried to contact the Dali Lama
recently by way of his web site, but they never answered back. Oh well.
