After reading “Nine billion names of God”, I have always been afraid of offending Buddhist monks.
This cautionary tale hasn’t prevented others from underestimating Buddhists. The Taliban blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas and then found themselves in a war with the Americans within a year. Burma did, and got hit by Nargis. China did, and got hit by an earthquake.
N Ram has been at it for a while. One wonders.
