I think it would have ended up in a brawl. Bukowski would get plastered (naturally) and he would demand his Highness's robe, glasses or EARS?! Dalai Lama would - regretfully- use karate chop to put the 'lost soul' to his place.
As I understand it, Linda requested 3 Buddhist Monks at Bukowski's funeral. I agree that Bukowski probably could have cared less -- but a nexus does exist, does it not? Linda must have had some respect for the Buddhists -- or was it just a joke?
