This is from The Onion. It's a hoax.
Too bad ... I wouldn't mind them unleashing it on 'The West' ... but even more so on the Middle East.
Oh well. Maybe the hoax will inspire the real buddhist monks to do it anyways.
I don't think these Buddhists are attempting to force their ideology on anyone.
Rather, I think it's just a great example undermining the hypocrisy of the western mindset, which typically views its own societal model as supreme and all other foreign models as potential "extremists," when in fact its the materialist western mentality that's been largely responsible for the current rape of the world.
The vid just begs the question of who the real "terrorists" of the 21st century are.
There are extremists willing to use violence to achieve political gains in all walks of life. One person's freedom fighter is another person's terrorist.
Great line, people always forget it's a matter of perspective... Lets not forget what happened in Burma, Myanmar, the Muslims there who were butchered by the Buddhist and who are still persecuted to this day..
Im a Marty
Reminds me of the other day when a buddhist friend of mine sent me an e-mail and asked me to visualise a picture of him hugging his pet doggie....... I said it would be better to attach a picture of him doing that than for me to visualise it... he responded saying he "didn't believe in attachments" dun dun dun... hehehe j/k
