In this video, DJKR says something which is very, very important, I think.
He says, "I don't want Buddhism to become a culture."
This is actually a profound statement.
Most Buddhist centers are little cultures unto themselves. Soooo important to see and understand this.
Most lineages are cultures unto themselves.
Some countries are this way too.
This video is only secondarily about tobacco.
IMO, it is about the dangers inherent in a religion becoming a culture, and in this case, Buddhism.
