I had a wonderful post lined up for the celebration of the Buddha’s Birthday today. It was funny but not insulting, silly but still somewhat reverent … and it included a wonderful reference to boobs.
But then I was sent this letter (via a Dharma friend at the Kansas Zen Center) from a concerned Christian.
Dear Zen student,
Do you chant to an entity called Kwan Seum Bosal at an alter? Does the alter have on it candles (fire), dirt (earth), water, and incense [Actually no…is Satan displeased]? Have you been told that Kwan Seum Bosal is the “Bodhisattva of Compassion?” Have you been told where this entity resides or how he can hear you? Certainly you must have wondered about these things.
KSB is a demonic entity. Your chanting at an alter with those elements present is a witchcraft ceremony
which “draws down” a demon or numbers of demons called Kwan Seum Bosal. These demons have placed you in bondage. I know you probably scoff at this though [Oh Sweet Effing Hell, I sure am].
What you call Zen Buddhism is the doctrine of demons [From your idiodic perception of your out-dated book. I do ask that you respect my idiotic perceptions and my out-dated books]. Do you believe in reincarnation [Do you believe in Zombies?]? This is also a demonic deception. Duk In Lee (your founding teacher, Seung Sahn) was blind leading the blind right to Hell-which is where he now resides awaiting judgment [I’ll be sure to say ‘hi’]. Don’t follow him or his numerous duped students. Know that he was a hypocrite as well who was having sex with many of those students [Kettle you are black, Love Pot].
If you believe there is no creator and that you came about through evolution, then there is no hope for you. (Have you ever read the subtitle to The Origin of the Species? It says, “For the preservation of favored RACES.” “Darwinism” was used to justify the eugenics movement–the culling of those deemed unfit for survival. It is a totally false science.) [Fuck me! We jumped the rails there didn’t we? When is the homosexual rant coming on, I wonder]
If you believe that there is a creator and that he has laws and that you’ve broken these laws which will result in real punishment (Hell), then there is hope for you. That hope is Jesus Christ, who took the punishment due you at the cross. By faith in Jesus Christ, you can avoid judgment and Hell and have eternal life. [I never asked for such an (sorry) ‘Indian Gift’ and he can bite me. Really he can since he is a zombie that should then provide me with enternal life. Yay.]
If you live [If you read are a 6th grade grammar] are a Zen student, then you probably have a desire to find the truth. But “Zen” is the wrong road; God’s word, the Bible, calls it the wide road that leads to death [All roads lead to death, get used to it]. Jesus Christ is the truth and the narrow gate that leads to life [Straight but not narrow]. Repent of Zen Buddhism and the doctrine of demons [Ok, done. Happy? You and Christ are still Douches. Can I go to heaven now?]. Believe on Jesus Christ and have eternal life.

ps–Didn’t the KUZS director recently kill himself as have others who have been duped by the Buddha’s teachings that there is no truth, meaning or reason to life? Do you think he and other dead Zen students have been reincarnated or that they are in Heaven? I tell you that he is now in a literal burning Hell awaiting judgment. Time is short. Believe in Jesus Christ before it’s too late. [I reiterate…suck it]
I’ll see your self-serving, idiotic, evangelical ass in Hell. Better luck next lifetime. Time is indeed short, do not squander it.
Yours in Christ,
And after all that….here are some videos of Celebrations of Buddha’s Birthday
