    Shaolin monks needed to defend themselves. Perhaps these monks also live in a similar environment.

    The original Shaolin Monks took a political side and their monastery was destroyed. They fought for one side. The Buddhists in Myanmar are no different. They are enacting genocide on a minority group.

    In kung fu movies when you see a fighter put forth a clenched fist wrapped in the h hand that was original a political gesture.

    Similar to the American black raised fist 'black power salute'.

    Zen is a mix of Buddhism and Japanese Bushido warrior code. Some do mot consider it Buddhism.

    As I see it to be Buddhist is to be pacifist.

    The Shaolin Monks were Taoists Mystical and supernatural.

    Buddhism has a coherent set of requirements and directions. Christians have 10 Commandments, Leviticus, and Old/New Testament sound bites.
