In the course of browsing through some old blog posts (I'm gathering material for another book based on my Church of the Churchless posts), I came across a fond memory:
"RSSB cartoons show lighter side of Sant Mat." Which started out this way.
While perusing a Christian web site that pokes fun at evangelical fundamentalism, today I suddenly thought Cartoons!
Bart and I both were RSSB initiates. We met at a RSSB bhandara (large get-together), introduced by a mutual friend: Victoria, also an artist.
Several times Victoria leaned over to me and whispered, in a decided stage whisper, so Bart could hear, "He's very talented."
Since spiritual cartooning ideas had been running through my head, and my own artistic talent is limited to stick figures, I was eager to chat with Bart.
After some post-bhandara back and forth emailing, here's what Bart produced. I sent them off to RSSB headquarters in India but so far as I know, they haven't been published. At least, not all of them.
I give Bart most of the credit for the cartoons – unless you really like one of them, in which case it must have been my idea.
Here's one of the cartoons.
Head over to my original blog post to see the rest. (Click on a small image to enlarge it.)
