It would be nice had the Buddhist from directly after the timer of the Buddha's death till now all lived up to the highest standards set by the Buddha, but they certainly did not. We could run through the catalogue of things such as monasteries having slaves, owning land, and whatnot, but here is what Mike said:
Expecting Asian Buddhists to change the way they are organised to cater for Western ideas seems a bit far-fetched to me. If Westerners want their own version of Buddhism it's really up to them to organise it.
If you feel like you have the authority to tell Asian Buddhists how to best live their lives, conduct their affairs and how best understand the Dhamma, go for it, show us how it done. In the mean time, those Westerners who try to understand the Dhamma, both in terms of its historic contexts and by putting it into practice, will be in a better place to try to adapt the Dhamma to Western needs.
