The Age-Old Quandry: Manga Bible or Manga Sutra?

Hmm. I got both of these in the mail today. Not sure which to read first. They seem too similar.

    I’m guessing that the passage from the OT about the “donkey-genitaled” men inspired the manga representations of both?

    There’s plenty of fucking in the Bible, but they never do a comic about it. That’s the problem.
    If they do it, they should call it — BEGATS.

  3. says

    Begats sounds like a title for a Biblical soap opera. Although I suppose if considered from another angle, it’d give “Holy Roller” an entirely new meaning as well.

    Yes Paul, the Diamond Sutra is sex free.

    I remember while I was studying Buddhism being asked by a friend “And, um, what about the sex? I would be interested in learning, you know, um . . . . Tantra.”

    Sigh. It is a shame when people’s “spirituality” revolves around getting off. Or am I just square?

    A very cool idea would be a short book (40k words) titled:

    Bible vs. Kama Sutra

    Moses cross-legged chanelling his chakaras, Kind David naked under a Banyan tree, the Apostle Paul in the streets of Rome ranting about the peacock position.

    Yeah, well, every one has something that pisses them off. For me it just happens to be sexy sutras!

    I was looking a month ago to see if any new translations had come out from the Tibetan, and amazon searched sutra…..I felt like I was in some sleazy news Kiosk in Italy.
