A Classically Liberal Neoconservative Tibetan Buddhist from the Midwest
Hey, I think I may have found another Republican Buddhist! According to Instapundit, anyways...

Yup, you did, Chris. Charlie Martin. Drop me a note sometime. What linage? I'm actually primarily Zen but I've hung out with a lot of Tibetan Buddhists.
Wow. Great to hear from you! I hope you have a good "serious" group- I've enjoyed visiting Zen temples in Japan, but it's often hard to take how Zen (or "Buddhism" in general) is practiced in America (especially here in Minnesota). I'm assuming either Rinzai or Soto, right?My own Tibetan Vajrayana monastery is affiliated with Gyuto in India and is in the "Gelug-pa" school.We also have a Sakya Center here in Minneapolis in addition to some purportedly "Karma-Kagyu" and Shambhala groups.Thanks and a happy New Year to you, Charlie!
And you Chris. Email is chasrmartin AT gmail. I'm Rinzai in theory, but I often attend the Jodo Shin temple in Denver, and hang out with the Shambhala folks in Boulder (although they wince when I call Mephong "Trungpa's kid".)
