the house of worship and all-you-can-eat buffets

I know a guy who teaches comparative religions at UC-Riverside. One of his students approached him after class to tell him about a local Buddhist temple. As they were talking, the student corrected him--no, not that Buddhist temple, the other one on Magnolia.

Apparently he was referring to the "Dragon House," a Chinese restaurant with gold lions out front.

What are you talking about? That's the best way to preach!

You stuff them until they're full and couldn't judge left or right. Then you start the persuasion. Even better, you should also give them places to sleep, free of charge.

This way, not only will you attract fellowers but the words would also spread.

But, you gotta be careful though, you may get transients, beggers and God-knows-what.

Buddhism is not a religion, its a philosophy. I had a brief flirtation with buddhism in my youth. Not least because back when I was poor, the Hare Crisna temple was always good for a free slap up 13 course vegitarian lunch and a bit of post food chanting. And there is something very sexy about bald girls in orange robes that go see through when the sun is behind them. Damn it, I'm going to come back as a rock arn't I?
