Name that philosopher...

Does anyone happen to know the name of the Greek philosopher that lived in a large outdoor ceramic urn in Athens and advocated the simple life?
Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

- Dawa Gyaltsen

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diogenes_of_Sinope
He used to stroll about in full daylight with a lamp; when asked what he was doing, he would answer, "I am just looking for a human being."
