I have read with interest SAK’s response to Mr. CB’s inquiry, but what interests me more is his speaking of ‘Popular Buddhism’ (that is a new one on me). This apparently is a form of ‘Kavalang’ Buddhism, an admixture of Hinduism and some aspects of what is said to be Buddhist practice. I shall be much obliged if Prof. Gananath Obeyesekera would shed some light on this matter.
