a Magazine

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

a Magazine

There is an opening for a colourful playboy format magazine that is devoted to displaying quality fotographs of the human corpse in its phases of decomposition: a corpse two or three days old, a corpse swollen up, a corpse blue-black in colour, a corpse full of corruption, a corpse eaten by crows etc.., a corpse that has flesh hanging from it, a corpse bespattered with blood, a corpse held together with sinews, a corpse without flesh and blood, bones scattered in all directions, bones bleached, bones heaped together after a lapse of years, bones weathered and crumbled to dust. Name of the magazine would be Repulsive.
An other quality magazine would be called Old Age, in the same style as before, with pictures of elderly people, 60 years, 70 years, 80 years or 90 years of age, raw pictures, with out make up. With clothes or with only little clothes, little stories of their many illnesses, of their waning life, truthfully, as it is.
To counteract any charges of nihilism a third magazine would be devoted to Dhyana, visual images that represent the states of Dhyana or states of Contemplation. Or then a magazine about Rebirth, stories of people who remember glimpses from their past lives, and of people who can see their future lives. Both ancient and living persons.

I take it that "niche market" means the small community of buddhist meditators? The teaching of Buddha is universal, it is the objective truth, I am quite sure that this magazine would have a substantially wider appeal.
