Buddhists offended by sexy magazine spread

Postby plwk » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:56 pm

Photos of lingerie models cavorting with Buddha statues published on the Internet by a men's magazine have caused an outcry among Thai Buddhists. More here
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Buddhism seems to have jumped on the bandwagon where being heterosexual is considered an aberration. :tongue:

All the Buddhas are smiling and don't appear to be offended at all.

I'm reminded of the story of three monks who approach a stream. A lady needs help getting across and one monk helps her across. Outraged, the other two monks carry their disgust all the way to their destination, where the helpful monk proclaims "I left her on the other shore, while you are still carrying her."
