Dāna - the paradigm of Ethic, Ritual and Liberation in Theravada Buddhism by Ven U Bodhinyana
“If people knew as I know the results of giving and sharing, they would not eat without having given nor would the stain of miserliness persist in overpowering their minds. Even if they were down to their last bit of food, they would not eat without having shared it, if those to receive it were present.” - Itivuttaka 26 [*]

Buddhism practice soothes mind and soul by Schneider Saintil, The Famuan, October 26, 2009
“The Buddha is a teacher, a role model, and many other things, but he is not an object of worship,” Parish said. “For me, wearing a necklace with the Buddha or having statues of Buddha in my home and office are simply for reminding me to aspire to be like the Buddha.”

Buddhism and human values by Sukomal Barua, The Daily Star, October 3, 2009
Dhaka, Bangladesh -- Today is the full-moon day of holy Prabarana, the second-biggest festival of the Buddhist world. It is the day of fasting-breaking of the three months long Uposathabrata. The Prabarana festival is observed in the month of Aswin, and is known as Aswini Purnima. The three months long ?Barshavasa (rain retreat) of the bhikkhus-bhikkhunis starts in the Ashari Purnima and continues up to Prabarana Purnima. The Buddha, on this day of the full moon, directed his disciples to go all around for the propagation of the dhamma -- "Carata bhikkhave carikam bahujana hitaya, bahujana sukhaya…lokanukampaya."

Buddhist Priests Use Pop Culture to Win Back Faithful by Catherine Makino and Naoyuki Ogi, IPS, Oct 2, 2009
TOKYO, Japan -- Hip hop. Fashion. Zen café. Animation. Who could have thought that these pop culture staples would come to be associated with a religion known for its centuries-old traditions advocating a strict life of self-denial? Yet Buddhist priests in Japan are riding on life’s fleeting pleasures to bring believers back and even attract young people into the fold. Today, this religion is fading away, said Buddhist priests who spoke with IPS, and many of the country’s approximately 75,000 temples are facing the biggest crisis in their history, because hardly anyone ever goes to them these days.

Burmese Buddhism has been attracting Western people for a long time through its specialization in Abhidhamma studies and meditation.

Temporary monks for better society by anaka Perera, Asian Tribune, September 19, 2009
Colombo, Sri Lanka -- After six years, the largely negative attitude among many Sri Lankan Buddhists towards temporary ordination has undergone a welcome change. The credit for this achievement goes to the Buddhist Cultural Centre (BCC) Nedimala, Dehiwala, which arranged for lay Buddhists to become monks and nuns temporarily in 2003. The scheme has become highly successful attracting many young Buddhists to the BCC -run Dekanduwala Meditation Centre, Kahatapitiya, and Kananwila in Horana. The temporary ordination has been limited to a period of 14 days to make it easier for those doing jobs to obtain leave for the purpose.
