Is this really true?
By my limited experience, yes matey.
I have freinds who are Malaysian buddhists (their school translates as "one way path") and they know nowt of buddhism as it is mostly discussed here.
In other ways though they know more about being buddhist than 99 out of 100 of the more traditional type buddhists I've ever yet met.
if by "one Way Path" you are referring to the "It Kuan Tao", they are seen as a cult which borrows Buddhist ideas, and not accepted by the Buddhist mainstream.
