Buddha for Sale

Buddhism is Big Money nowadays.

All you have to do is read one of the latest Buddhist magazines, and look at the ads. Meditation for sale. Buddhist teachings for sale. Buddhist merchandise for sale.

Meditation training goes for big dollars these days. Even though the Buddha said do not sell the Dharma, the Dharma is for sale.

Mindfulness meditation has now become a dominant force in psychology.

Many teachers try to separate Buddhism from mindfulness meditation. But mindfulness meditation is a Buddhist Meditation.

I wonder what the Buddha would think about Buddhism in America.
