“How Not to Treat the Buddha”

Another week, another flareup over a Buddha image on a toilet. (See this previous one also.) That seems to be the way of Dharma-Burgers: some people like them (they clearly sell), some people don’t like them, and some people really, really, really don’t like them. Often, of course, this has to do with local or national culture as much as it does with pop-culture.

Anyway, you can read about the latest Buddha/toilet flap, with some nice commentary and links, in “How Not to Treat the Buddha,” a new NYT/IHT item, here.
