Notes
Thugee India 1850 Anthony, Piers. Faith of Tarot. New York: Berkley Books (10th printing 1986; 1st ed. 1980); pg. 22. "'...Siva's consort, the multi-armed Goddess Kali, the Power of Nature and the ruthless cruelty of Nature's laws. In her honor the Thuggees killed thousands of--' "
Thugee India 1872 Verne, Jules. Around the World in Eighty Days. Translated by George M. Towle. New York: Bantam (1988; c. 1873); pg. 37. [Chapter 11] "The travellers crossed, beyond Milligaum, the fatal country so often stained with blood by the sectaries of the goddess Kali. Not far off rose Ellora, with its graceful pagodas, and the famous Aurungabad, capital of the ferocious Aureng-Zeb, now the chief town of one of the detached provinces of the kingdom of the Nizam. It was thereabouts that Feringhea, the Thuggee chief, king of the stranglers, held his sway. These ruffians, united by a secret bond, strangled victims of every age in honour of the goddess Death, without ever shedding blood; there was a period when this part of the country could scarcely be travelled over without corpses being found in every direction. The English Government has succeeded in greatly diminishing these murders, though the Thuggees still exist, and pursue the exercise of their horrible rites. "
Thugee India 1939 Willis, Connie. Remake. New York: Bantam (1995); pg. 1. "It was an early Spielberg liveaction, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom... The liveaction was made in '84, at the very beginning of the computer graphics revolution, and it had a few CG sections: digitized Thugees being thrown off a cliff... "
Thugee India: Calcutta 1977 Simmons, Dan. Song of Kali. New York: Tor (1998; c. 1985); pg. 68. "'Even I knew that for several years gangs of Asian thugees and Calcutta's own goondas had run entire sections of the city. They charged fees to the various refugees for entry and squatting rights; they controlled the flow of drugs to and through the city; and they murdered anyone who interfered with their traditional management of protection, smuggling, and crime in the city. Sanjay told me that even the pathetic slum-dwellers who paddled out from the chawls each evening to steal the blue and red navigation lights from the river for some purpose of their own paid a commission to the goondas. This commission was tripled after a goonda-chartered freighter--bound for Singapore with a cargo of opium and smugglers' gold--ran aground in the Hooghly because of missing channel lights...' "
Thugee India: Calcutta 1977 Simmons, Dan. Song of Kali. New York: Tor (1998; c. 1985); pg. 256. "'But we have no hard evidence yet that the thuggees, goondas, or the so-called Kapalikas are involved. It is also complicated by the fact that various criminal elements often call upon a corrupt, Tantric form of mysticism, frequently invoking local deities--in this case, Kali--in order to impress their initiates or to frighten the common people.' "

"'...the head of the John Dillinger Died for You Society, has written an analysis of Gunga Din, pointing out the real meaning of the thuggee, the evil goddess Kali, the pit of serpents, the elephant medicine, the blowing of the bugle from the top of the temple, and so forth. Gunga Din celebrates the imposition of law and order in an area terrorized by the criminal followers of a goddess who breeds evil and chaos. The thuggee are a caricature of the Discordians, and the English represent the Illuminati's view of themselves. The Illuminati love that movie.' "

You know what they say about the Tibetan Book of the Dead? For that matter, what they say about all those sacred texts, including the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

"He had been interested in Buddhism and yoga lately, ever since he had been struck by the similarity in encephalographic patterns between his own tank states and those of yogis and Zen monks in meditation. He was in correspondence with two young Indian physiologists at the University of Calcutta, G. K. Mishan and B. S. Chhan, who were doing EEG work on yogis. They were going to a lamasery north of Delhi that summer to do more intensive studies, and they had asked Jessup to join them.

I am the Gyatso Rimpoche, the voice answered. The eighteenth reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. I am traveling the Bardo in search of my next reincarnation. I've looked everywhere on earth, but I've had no luck, and I decided to look somewhere new. Tibet is still under the thumb of the Chinese, and they show no signs of letting up. The Chinese, although I love them dearly, are hard bastards. And the other governments of the world long ago turned their backs on Tibet. So no one will challenge the Chinese. Something needs to be done. So I came to Mars.

Good idea, the little red people said.
"
Tibetan Buddhism Mars 2128 Robinson, Kim Stanley. Blue Mars. New York: Bantam Books (1996); pg. 92. "Yes, the Dalai Lama agreed, but I must admit I am having a hard time finding a new body to inhabit. For one thing there are few children anywhere. Then also it does not look like anyone is interested. I looked at Sheffield but everyone was too busy talking. I went to Sabishii but everyone there had their heads stuck in the dirt. I went to Elysium but everyone had assumed the lotus position and could not be roused. I went to Christianopolis but everyone there had other plans. I went to Hiranyagarba but everyone there said we've already done enough for Tibet. I've gone everywhere on Mars, to every tent and station, and everywhere people are just too busy. No one wants to be the nineteenth Dalai Lama. And the Bardo is getting colder and colder.

Good luck, the little red people said. We've been looking ever since John died and we haven't even found anyone worth talking to, much less living inside. These big people are all messed up. "

Tibetan Buddhism Mars 2128 Robinson, Kim Stanley. Blue Mars. New York: Bantam Books (1996); pg. 92. "The Dalai Lama was discouraged by this response. He was getting very tired, and could not last much longer in the Bardo. So he said, What about one of you?

Well, sure, the little red people said. we'd be honored. Only it will have to be all of us at once. We do everything like that together.

Why not? said the Dalai Lama, and he transmigrated into one of the little red specks, and that same instant he was there in all of them, all over Mars. The little red people looked up at the humans crashing around above them, a sight which before they had tended to regard as some kind of bad widescreen movie, and now they found they were filled with all the compssion and wisdom of the eighteen previous lives of the Dalai Lama. They said to each other, Ka wow, these people really are messed up. We thought it was bad before, but look at that, it's even worse than we thought. They're lucky they can't read each other's minds or they'd kill each other.
"
Tibetan Buddhism Mars 2128 Robinson, Kim Stanley. Blue Mars. New York: Bantam Books (1996); pg. 93. "Have you ever tried your telepathy on them? the Dalai Lama asked.

Oh, no, they said. No way. Too scary. The ugliness might kill us on the spot. Or at leat make us real sick.

Maybe not, the Dalai Lama said. Maybe if you blocked off your reception of what they thought, and just beamed your thoughts at them, it would be all right. Just send lots of good thoughts, like an advice beam. Compassion, love agreeableness, wisdom, even a little common sense.

We'll give it a try, the little red people said. But we're all going to have to shout at the top of our telepathic voices, all in chorus, because these folks just aren't listening.

I've faced that for nine centuries now, the Dalai Lama said. You get used to it. And you little ones have the advantage of numbers. So give it a try.

And so all the little red people all over Mars looked up and took a deep breath.
"
Tibetan Buddhism Mars 2128 Robinson, Kim Stanley. Blue Mars. New York: Bantam Books (1996); pg. 92-93. "They need your help, the Dalai Lama said inside them all. Maybe you can help them.

Maybe, the little red people said. They were dubious, to tell the truth. They had been trying to help humans ever since John Boone died, they had set up whole towns in the porches of every ear on the planet, and talked continuously every since, sounding very much like John had...

But now the little red people had the compassionate spirit of the Dalai Lama infusing them, and so they decided to try one more time. Perhaps it will take more than whispering in their ears, the Dalai Lama pointed out, and they all agreed. We'll have to get their attention some other way.

"This Green Arrow, the archer, the legendary urban warrior, was a man whose shadow passed through endless rumor and swashbuckle. I'd heard he was dead. I'd heard he lived on a South Pacific island with an old high school flame and a Tibetan guru. I'd heard he lost a limb, though he seemed intact. Maybe it was in the tabloids I'd read that he was on his way to Mars to found a colony... Evidently not. He was here. "
