No one got any pics of sex paraphernalia?! People need to step it up
"People often get too quick to say 'there's no self. There's no self...no self...no self.' There is self, there is focal point, its not yours. That's what not self is."

Ninoslav Ñāṇamoli
Senses and the Thought-1, 42:53

"Those who create constructs about the Buddha,
Who is beyond construction and without exhaustion,
Are thereby damaged by their constructs;
They fail to see the Thus-Gone.

That which is the nature of the Thus-Gone
Is also the nature of this world.
There is no nature of the Thus-Gone.
There is no nature of the world."

Nagarjuna
MMK XXII.15-16

The monestary owns a house in Hawaii which called the Po Lin buddhist association of Hawaii. Local people said the 2 kept visiting the place every year for the last decade. Sound of man and woman can be heard from the bathroom at night.

Yeah, well, what about the two gay zen monks who got married in japan and who drank wine at their wedding celebration? I think there is a thread about this somewhere here. Do you think that one of them might sun bathe wearing a bikini while the other waits in the shade?

I think zen monks are allowed to get married.

Interesting that whoever took the photos was not able to get a clear view of either of the faces of the people in the photos.....how could that happen? What are the chances of a photographer getting those photos and not getting a clearer view of their faces?

I think Japanese Buddhism there has pretty much thrown out the Vinaya. The clergy there is called priests rather than monks.
