Seeker-centered Buddhism

Buddhism’s numbers are apparently shrinking. They aren’t growing.

They’re answer? Hip-hop and alcohol?

“This is an old, old story, a fantasy and longing cosmology. Hey, hey, what’s the story about? It’s about the Buddha, yo. Hey brother, listen carefully! You got it? No? You don’t? Okay, baby, no problem.”

That is one hip-hop (can we call it that?) verse as reported by CNN – Buddhist monks use hip hop, alcohol to attract followers.

Isn’t that funny to think about and watch? I wonder where they got the idea?

Think about this…

Christians, is this video, and the approach itself, make Buddhism in any way appealing? Is it at all attractive? Tempting?

What do you think non-Christians think of Christianity when we do stuff like this in a similar vein?
