Wilson and Buddhism
I've been interested in Buddhism for many years, and I mention this because RAW also was very interested in Buddhism, peppering his writings with references to it.
Many examples could be offered. For example, Wilson said that COSMIC TRIGGER 2: DOWN TO EARTH was a Buddhist book that gives different sides to his personality (citation, the chapter "Books by Robert Anton Wilson" in AN INSIDER'S GUIDE TO ROBERT ANTON WILSON by Eric Wagner).
The last chapter of CT 2 discusses Shinran Buddhism and explains that Wilson's marriage to his wife, Arlen, was performed in 1959 in Brooklyn in a Shinryan Buddhist ceremony.
Buddhists in all traditions often recite a vow in which they express their allegiance to the Buddha, in the Dharma (i.e., the Buddhist teachings) and the Sangha (a word that means "community." In Asian countries, the Sangha usually means Buddhist monks. In the more lay-oriented U.S., it sometimes means the community of believers).
Wilson's marriage ceremony asked his wife and himself to place their trust in these three pillars of Buddhism. Wilson knew who the Buddha was and the Dharma, but he admits that the couple asked each other later afterward, "What the hell is the Sangha?" He later learned.
