Buddhists are like that.
Actually, that's how I became Buddhist. Everyone seemed so happy. Initially I just wanted to practise my Thai... But I ended up chanting refuges and precepts before lunch every Sunday. It was more than six months later that a monk turned up who could speak good enough English to teach meditation...
