Born Again Buddhists?

Barbara O’Brien, over at About.com takes on an interesting practice that is summarily given a pass by many Western practitioners:

Buddhist temple in Thailand is offering instant rebirth, for a fee. People line up every day to climb into big, pink coffins. Monks chant over them, and they climb out, reborn. The rebirth costs $5 and change.

This selling of indulgences doesn’t reflect the core of any nondual spiritual teaching and yet it can be found anywhere that claims its heritage as holy.
