Buddhism And The Zen Of Punk Rock : NPR Music

"What does punk rock have to do with Buddhism There's a disdain for authority. There s a strong sense that the individual is responsible for herself or for himself says Brad Warner a bonafide punk rocker and ordained Zen master. The former bassist of Ohio-based punk rock band Zero Defex is also the author of two books on the subject Sit Down and Shut Up which promises Punk Rock commentaries on Buddha God truth sex and death and Hardcore Zen which explores Buddhism and punk s overlapping approaches to rebellion."
