Buddhism is sometimes described as a lifestyle philosophy. Maybe so, those elements are present.
"Buddhism will come to the West as a psychology."
I like the religious trappings of cultural dharma, Tantric flamboyance, Zen aesthetic, Therevadin behavour modification etc.
For me though, liberation psychology, pragmatic self help and altruistic engagement is where we transcend conventional healthy ego maintenance psychology.
