More Buddhists should be on reality shows...
Or Genkaku could simply start making some YouTube videos. A Zen version of "Dr. Phil" perhaps?
Luke, you wily cuss ... you caught me with my pants down! Well done!
First of all, as to the "minor celebrity," let us pray, for the sake of all sentient beings, that it is very minor indeed. ... unless of course it means that people will send money to support me in my old age.
Second of all, although I have no wish to be on YouTube or TV, I do have a secret craving to win The Great American Think Off
this year and be crowned as the greatest American philosopher of 2009, or something equally ludicrous. The whole thing makes me giggle in the same way the Monty Python skit did ... two boxers enter a ring -- one a Catholic, one a Protestant: Whoever wins will prove
that his religion is the best. What a hoot!
Yes, I do love laughing.
