There’s crazy stuff going on in Buddhism in Japan. Here’s a rapping monk, Shaka Munibutsu, with some rhymes to slap you out of samsara and guaranteed to decrease your dukkha. He’s on a mission to bring the dharma to young folks. Hope he’s on YouTube soon!

*groan*…Japanese monks are getting desparate.

By the way, the rappin’ monk’s name isn’t “Shaka Munibutsu”; that’s a transliteration of Shakyamuni Buddha. The monks name is Kansho Tagai.

Hi Gerald — I thought that was his cheeky rap pseudonym, like Grandmaster Flash!

He he he, no. I don’t think even they would go that low. :p
