Beastie Boy Adam Yauch dies (video)

Famous JuBu and dedicated supporter of Tibet and the Dalai Lama Adam "MCA" Yauch, 47, died today.

(CNN) He was a founding member of the pioneering rap band Beastie Boys. He died Friday after a nearly three-year "battle" with cancer, the band's publicist said. 
  • Of course, nearly no one dies of cancer nowadays; they die of violent allopathic cancer treatment -- chemo, pharmaceuticals, surgery, and radiation. Even framing the effort to heal as a "war" on cancer, a "battle," a "fight" is utter foolishness. Love the body. Cancer is there for a reason. It is no mistake. Remove the reason, remove the cancer. There are many cures, many ways of reversing the condition, many ways to put it into remission.

Famous millionaires and billionaires (i.e., Steve Jobs) die not from cancer but from their antipathy to successful treatments and/or clinging to officially filtered "science" as approved by the well controlled medical establishment. Who controls it? The money makers -- Big Pharma, medical appliance manufacturers, bought off university researchers, many of whom lend their good name to medical industry ghostwriters -- control it, not the scientific process. That process guides other research that is rejected out of hand because it does not provide the kind of income potential allopathy does. More
Yauch converted to Buddhism in the 1990s after visiting Nepal and hearing the Dalai Lama speak in Arizona, he told the Buddhist magazine Shambhala Sun in 1995. "It just seemed like Buddhism, especially Tibetan Buddhism -- because that's mainly what I've been exposed to -- was a real solid organization of teachings to point someone in the right direction," the magazine quoted him as saying. "Some real well thought out stuff. But I don't know, like, every last detail about Buddhism." The conversion led him to have second thoughts about the bawdy party-boy image the band portrayed in the 1980s, he told the Boston Globe in 1998. "I didn't realize how much harm I was doing back then and I think a lot of rap artists probably don't realize it now," the newspaper quoted him as saying. "I said a lot of stuff fooling around back then, and I saw it do a lot of harm. I had kids coming up to me and saying, 'Yo, I listen to your records while I'm smoking dust, man.' And I'd say, 'Hey, man, we're just kidding. I don't smoke dust.' People need to be more aware of how they're affecting people." As a Buddhist, Yauch became an advocate for Tibetan freedom. He founded the Milarepa Fund, which helped raise money for the effort, and organized charity concerts involving the Beastie Boys and other acts, including the first Tibetan Freedom Concert in 1996.
