NPR Morning Edition: Monks tending bar
Did anybody else hear the piece on "Morning Edition" (NPR) this morning about Japanese Buddhist Monks operating and tending bar in Tokyo? While I release that "Shin" or "Chan" dominates over there, as well as Zen, obviously, still, I don't know of a "school" of Buddhism where the actual sale of alcohol is not prohibited, especially as it applies to the Monastics. They also dispense advice, so it seems, and there was a very misleading comment made about pre-destination (again, something I thought no Buddhist school of thought would believe in), but some filtered down comments about impermanence did seem to seep through.
Anybody else hear it? If not its probably on the NPR Web Site.
