The Buddhist Vinaya stipulates that a Bhikkhu shall not dance or touch the body of a woman. Those were the days.
Bhikkhu Shi Te of Tang disguised himself up as a beggar to help the poor. If some painter in disguise paints a picture to save a life, he is a true Mahayana street Bodhisattva.
Nowadays, I have witnessed Bhikkhus who not only dance, but dance with women and embrace them in public. These are the street nurses, the true Mahayana Bodhisattvas who have emptied all pretenses for the sake of bringing joy to the world.
Lately, a Japanese Bhikkhu is using rap music and dance to popularize the Buddha’s teachings and bring happiness to people. To me, he is a true Mahayana Bodhisattva, a street nurse, a giver of joy! I salute him!
