  1. This is a great video. I think a lot of what you say is factual. I know someone who very involved in the HK movement and I am really worried about it. But I don’t think the movement is all bad. I think its up to an individual not to become too fanatical. I take what I want from the chanting and services, but I maintain other things that they wouldn’t totally agree with. I have never felt that the devotees would force you into anything. I think its up to an individual not to do anything you are uncomfortable with. If I didn’t want to do anything, I think there is nothing the devotees could do to sway me and I don’t think they would isolate me either.

  2. Seems like the biggest problem in temple life was the impersonal outlook … I wonder what you would be saying now if, when you first entered the temple, all the devotees had been grateful and excited you wanted to join in, and had all hung out with you to find out what things you found joy in doing so all of you could figure out how that could fit in to the joint effort to make spiritual progress?
