Pastor Tullian quoting Buddhists now about grace? (UPDATE and real Antinomian Nadia Bolz-Weber about brokenness and forgiveness?)

(note 6-22-2015): I have since come to the conviction that even though I don't believe all the critiques of Tullian are fair, they do have some good points. Tullian's message has been going off the rails for a while and his associations and messages are getting more vague. He seems to have gone from assuming the gospel to assuming the law.)

Um, what?

"I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace, to hear Om again, to sleep deeply again and to awaken refreshed again. I had to become a fool again in order to find Atman in myself. I had to sin in order to live again. Whither will my path yet lead me? This path is stupid, it goes in spirals, perhaps in circles, but whichever way it goes, I will follow it...Now he understood it and realized that the inward voice had been right, that no teacher could have brought him salvation." p 97,99.
Truly alarming.   I used to recommend him.  I cannot recommend Tullian if he is going to keep doing this stuff and going this direction.

UPDATE:
another one from Nadia Bolz Weber

So, Last week we learned about 'grace' from Siddhartha.  This week the cussing pastrix Nadia F-word Bolz-Weber teaches about an F word and a B word, Forgiveness and Brokenness.  

So let's take bets.  Will it be Jay Bakker, Brian McLaren, Tony Jones, Jim Wallis, or Barak Obama next?
