Steven Seagal is back in the Buddhist news stream after announcing that he will give a talk on Buddhism at the Tibetan Buddhist Temple in Coombs, the only Buddhist temple on Vancouver Island, on October 2. The Vancouver Sun has the story:
While Seagal is well-known for a string of blockbuster action movies, including Above the Law and Under Siege, he is also revered as a holy man in the Buddhist religion and was recognized as a reincarnation, or ‘Tulku’, of the Buddhist Teacher Chungdrag Dorje by “His Holiness” Penor Rinpoche in 1997.
