Buddhism spreads in Bible Belt
NASHVILLE - For Win Myint, faith means constant meditation, a Buddhist practice that has helped control the tremors of Parkinson's disease and bring him in harmony with the world around him.

Myint - a longtime Nashville resident who emigrated from the former Southeast Asian nation of Burma (renamed Myanmar) - is hoping to bring that practice of mindful meditation to others with the opening of the Buddhist Meditation Center in south Nashville.

Isn't Yoga more about abolishing thought via physical exercises (to achieve union with the Brahman) than mindfulness? If so, then no wonder churches like it today! Exercise the body, not the mind.

Whereas knowledge & thought are central to Scripture. See a concordance for the number of occurrences of these & related words, and contrast with the count for "feel" etc.

Scott, those false Christians building churches for money, like Olsteen, are nullifying the gospel's saving power.

Yoga, is another problem since it has many of the same elements that are mentioned in the article, and the problems that you mentioned about, Buddhism, Scott

Buddhism is a very attractive system when compared to modern Christianity's selfishness and emphasis on material posessions, because of its emphasis on simplicity and letting go. Before I discovered SermonAudio and true Christianity, I studied buddhism for many years. A lot of the practice is compatible with other religions because there are no real beliefs involved. You can do them without having to believe anything, and the mindfulness practices are helpful. Particularly the Therevada practice from the Burma area. It is not as superstitiously tinged as Tibetan Buddhism, and not goal-oriented like Zen. Therevada is concerned with mindfulness and awareness in daily life. I can certainly appreciate the attraction for people caught up in worldly Christianity, particularly the kind that emphasizes posessions and achivement. The more I studied Buddhism, however, the more I found some of its core doctrines to be untenable.
