Sko wrote:Many concepts within Buddhist culture have been assimilated within more "westernized" countries and their cultures. Examples of this are yoga and buddhist philosophy self-help books. In your personal opinion as a practicing Buddhist, are you more concerned about the cultural appropriation taking place and the out-of-place misuse of Buddhist concepts or are you content and happy that any part of Buddha's teachings are helping people even outside primarily Buddhist countries?
(P.S. it's come to my attention recently that some new age Wiccan sects have begun using the chakras in their practices. This is just another addition to the list, obscure as it is.)
