    Happy Relax Cosmic Temple and Planetarium

    We've seen rapping monks and other pop-culture attempts to increase awareness of Buddhism in Japan. How about building a planetarium next to the temple?


    I find it surreal and beautiful. Maybe we can do a Zazenkai sometime with ten little screens / avatars floating around in space overhead in the Gingaza planetarium.

    If I did not call our Zazenkai "Zen Buddhist" ... and maybe changed the name and atmosphere to "Happy Relax Cosmic Yoga" or some silly name. and filled the place with balloons and a bounce house, I would get many more people to come. I mean it.

      If there was a Buddhist temple that also had great Mexican food I'm sure it would be very popular.

        Great!

        I actually thought of some options like that ... a coffee shop with a free coffee in a relaxing chair, but first people would need to sit Zazen for 10 minutes ... a Zazen dance club (non-drug/alcohol) ... a Zazen mini-golf course (no holes?) ... to get Japanese people to attend.

        These kinds of "relax rooms" and "oxygen bars" that became a little popular in Tokyo, so I thought to combine it with Zazen ... Oxygen Zazen! ...

        Hmmmm. Any suggestions?
