As many of you know, Buddhism is not a monolithic religion with no variation. There are lots of different branches, each with their own further unique interpretations, rituals, and ways the sasana has merged with different cultures and people. So it’s always a fascinating inquiry when those from one heritage suggest we secularists can’t do what their own forebears have done in merging Buddhism with our own world view and culture.

So, sit back, relax, and have a nice Ginger Peach tea.
