    How To Be A Successful Zen Teacher (and really rake in the Big Bucks!)

    After I posted my "April Fools" this year about our Sangha's "Jizo 1" rocket program ...

    https://www.treeleaf.org/forums/show...ing-into-Space

    ... one of our members (thanks, Neil!) dug up this old one from 10 years ago, about what a Zen teacher needs to do to really promote him/herself in the west, to get out there and SELL THAT SANGHA! The art of Maha-Marketing!

    Frankly, I think it is still as true as true can be. I need a funny hat, a shoji screen, a cute kid and a cat in my videos.

    I recommend this to all, let it be a lesson to you.

    The only difference from back then is that Tricycle now publishes my foolish musings (look for me to be featured this upcoming May and June! ), and I have a real Zen book out with Wisdom Publications! So, I am now part of the mainstream Zen media literati too!

    However, I'm sure not magazine cover material, and I still don't have an actual endorsement from the Dalai Lama.

    Nor a tattoo.

    I love that humor is part of the Dharma. No need to be so serious about it all

    Well, I just saw an Ad on FB about enlightened achievement. There's a description of enlightenment and we can enroll in the course.
