Three Yogis in a Cave


So there are these three yogis meditating in a cave. They've been there for ten years -- in total silence the entire time. Absolutely still. Absolutely focused. Living on air alone. Then one day, in the tenth year of their retreat, an albino mountain lion makes his way to the mouth of the cave and lets out a tremendous roar.

Ten years pass.

The first yogi twitches slightly, opens his mouth and says "WOW!"

Another ten years pass. Then the second yogi blinks, "Yeah, I know what you mean, brother."

Another ten years pass.

"HEY!" the third yogi bellows, "If you guys don't shut up, I'm moving to another cave."

Morning all.
As I climb the ladder to success.

It is with great reluctance
That I say goodbye
To my dear companions
Of fear and blame.

In the days of the Yali Kuga
The door to heaven is open for those
Who can renounce being a veganazi
Or similar oddity

And embrace the master
In this time
That can give the greatest gift
Truly fortunate are those.
