    Thank you, Alan. These fellow doing Takuhatsu begging as a scam have been around Tokyo and other Asian cities for years.

    There are actually rules for identifying the scammers ...

    Only a shame if it takes money away from the truly needy. Let us sit in Metta.

    Hello Alan,

    This is sad to see ... if they were in desperate need, then maybe I could understand. But if they are solely out of greed, this is not good. Much metta to them.

    As a trainee priest, please take any commentary by me on matters of the Dharma with a pinch of salt.
