THAILAND NIGHTLIFE REVIEW

 

 

Welcome to my website.  Unlike the universe, this website has a purpose: to offer rants, tirades, opinions and discussion about books on Thailand, give an overview of nightlife in Thailand and, yes, to provide a few news items which might not appear elsewhere.  And to have some fun.

Bar, club and restaurant owners who would like to send material on their special events, birthday bashes, anniversary parties, etc., are welcome to do so but please remember men in Thailand are a bit jaded so if you’re just going to offer the usual free gourmet food and free full band entertainment and free beautiful and eager-to-please women, well, the lads have been there, done that. So do try to offer potential patrons something special. ;-)

There is a contest every two weeks when this column appears and the first to answer the question correctly or identify a photograph correctly will receive vouchers worth at least 3,500 baht in food and drink, i.e., 500 baht each, from Larry's Dive, Shadow Bar, The Old Dutch, the Big Mango, Electric Blue, The Duke of Wellington pub, and Bourbon Street Restaurant. The prizes will build up in case anyone doesn't win it immediately so the bonanza for the eventual winner could get quite interesting.  It will double to 7,000 and, if still no winner, to 10,500, etc.  Second prize is a "I Support Single Moms" T-shirt.  And please remember a part of all money received from the sale of my books goes to needy Thais (in the form of payment to go go dancers, waitresses and hostesses).

She is a honey, ain't she!  And smart too!  Stop by Mojos and buy her a drink and say hello.  But remember: She mah wooman!  You try to muck about with Khun Cheer and ah will hit you so hard you will starve to death from bouncin'; ah will punch you so hard your shirt will run up your back like a winder shade; ah will crush you like a grape, ah will peel you like a banana!  Ah will...Oh, screw it, life is short, do what the hell you want.

 

This is a photograph from a CCTV camera on Soi 33, Sukhumvit, which caught Dean Barrett drugging, binding and kidnapping Khun Cheer so that he could do, well, what you would do if you had kidnapped her.

Why you should buy (my) books for Christmas Gifts

"A rare copy of Edgar Allan Poe’s first book has sold for $662,500 at a New York auction. The copy of “Tamerlane and Other Poems” had been estimated to sell for between $500,000 and $700,000 at Christie’s on Friday. The 40-page collection of poems was published in 1827. Poe wrote the book shortly after moving to Boston to launch his literary career. Poe’s name wasn’t even on the book, which was credited to 'a Bostonian.'”

So you see?  Books go up in value, sometimes waaay up!  And in any case what American woman wouldn't love a copy of The Go Go Dancer who Stole My Viagra for Christmas.  Get it now before it becomes rare!  Maybe I should do a book and credit it only to "a Bangkokian.'"

 

Only the Best People Read Dean Barrett books

 

Yes, folks, from hill tribe long-necked Karen in Thailand's mysterious Far North to dressed-to-the-nines Bangkok ladyboys

just about everyone is reading Dean Barrett books.  So hesitate no longer; join the hi-so crowd: buy a DB book today!

Khun Nana's Corner

Khun Nana is a savvy local expat who keeps in shape by hitting most of the bars of Nana Plaza as often as possible.  From his vast experience, he will enlighten and entertain us with his recollections of the bar scene be they humorous, tragic or somewhere in between.

Alas, Khun Nana went to America and came back sick.  He'll be writing again in January.  (That will teach him to go to America.)  Meanwhile, here is one of his classics:

 

Ten Golden Rules of Thai Bargirls

by Khun Nana

When I first started writing this column I explored the top ten rules for dealing with regular gals as well as a top ten for surviving with bar gals.  I received a lot of positive feedback from both readers and close mates of mine who have to be constantly bombarded by my rants and unsolicited opinions.  Since I live in an area surrounded by bar gals who are plying their trade (much like Louis Armstrong and Vincent Van Gogh did) I am often privy to the way these gals think and act.  So if you were ever curious about how the other side thinks, here comes Khun Nana’s top ten rules for being a bar gal:

1) The Golden Rule is to make the most money while doing the least amount of work.  Yes, I know that most of you are thinking that this is rule number one for anyone working any job.  You would be right!  The gals are no different.  They all want money and most are generally very lazy (I can relate) so maximum income for minimum effort is the key.  Guys who send money from abroad are the Holy Grail.  Huge money for virtually no effort.  Ever wonder why they always ask what hotel you are staying at?  There are two reasons for this.  First is to set the price, as punters staying in four or five start hotels will definitely be charged more.  Just as important is that they want to know how far it is to your place.  Guys staying two minutes away are much more desirable than guys staying across town.  If you are willing to use the short time room that is 50 feet away you are a dream come true.

2) Try to have fun.  Thai gals are fun loving and easily bored, so it is very important for them to have at least some fun while making money.  Many gals will quit a job that they consider no fun (“mai sanuk” in Thai) even if it is the 28th of the month and they have no money for next month’s rent!  This may seem insane to us responsible foreigners, but believe me when I tell you that the biggest insult you can receive in this country is to be labeled “mai sanuk.”  Most gals have chosen the venue that they work in because they have at least one friend there.  Often if the friend quits or moves to another bar the gal in question will move on with her.  What fun will it be to work in a bar with no friends? 

3) Never ever ever ever say you have a boyfriend!  They all realize that they are not just selling their bodies, but are also selling a fantasy to the customer.  I wish I had one baht for every gal I have heard say “I no have boyfriend. Thai man no good.”  They may have a steady Thai boyfriend, several Thai lovers, four western guys sending money every month and dozens of customers, but they will absolutely tell you that they are unattached.  This also works in reverse.  Many of the customers are married or have a girlfriend but very few ever talk about it when meeting new gals.

4) Seize every opportunity to benefit financially from the time spent with a customer.  Receiving clothes, jewelry, mobile phones, etc. will all increase the bottom line.  The customer really should be prepared for this one.  If you go to a tailor shop to buy a shirt, he is going to attempt to sell you suits, shoes, etc.  It’s his job. One of my favorite gals always says “my job to ask, your job to say no.”

5) Collect phone numbers and email addresses from every customer even if he only bought you a cola.  I don’t need to tell you the HUGE reward that comes from sending out 357 emails and 642 sms messages requesting money.  Just a one or two percent response rate and bills are paid for the month.  One gal joked with me “my Mom is sick and the buffalo died, or the buffalo is sick and my Mom died, can’t remember which one but it’s really bad!”

6) Learn to put your mind away in a separate place.  Whether the gal is bored, tired, listening to a punter drone on and on about his pathetic life, staring at the ceiling while a stranger has his way with her, or perhaps just not in the mood to work, it is essential to be able to separate the mind from the body.  I once asked a gal what she thought about when she was making love with a strange man. Her response was “I think about how I am just about to walk out of there with xxx baht in my hand. And what I am going to buy with that money.”

7) Always say to the customer that the reason you are working in the bar is to help out your desperately poor family.  Some gals actually do send some money home.  Some give it away to their Thai boyfriends.  Many others just blow their money on the latest fashions and mobile phones.  Regardless, everyone must learn to say the following: “I no have boyfriend. I no like Thai man. Thai man no good. I no like work in bar but need money to send to family.”  No gal will be allowed to work in the bar until she memorizes that script.

8) Learn to prey on the emotional weaknesses of Western men.  You must learn how to make customers feel lust, guilt, responsibility, jealousy, and a myriad of other emotions.  This isn’t that easy as no Thai man would ever fall for the silly little games that come from this but many (certainly not all) Western men are unequipped to handle these games. One of my best mates likes to say (when referring to Western customers dealing with Thai bar gals) that “the gals have the home field advantage and many of us don’t even know the rules to this game.”

9) Don’t trust all the other gals in the bar.  Yes friends, they lie, cheat and steal from each other as much (if not more so) than they do with customers.  One more reason it is so important to have at least one true blue friend in the bar.  There is no such word as “LOAN” in the bar gal dictionary.  It was not a loan, it was a gift.

10) Always accompany the customer to the airport.  Guys are so emotional when they must leave Paradise that they are known to lavish gals with money and gifts while waiting for the plane to antisepticville. I was in G-Spot in Nana Plaza one night when a gal came in and started throwing bank notes around the bar and the whole place went nuts.  She later told me that her customer gave all of his local currency to her while he cried at the airport. It was over 76,000 baht.

Until next time have fun and be happy! 

Until next time.  Khun Nana

In addition to very good prices on Chang beer and others beers, and in addition to tasty popcorn, don't forget Electric Blue on Patpong 2 also has girls with a motto: All the dancers refuse point blank to wear panties, they say they feel good to "air it all out."

******************* 

I was recently in Baccara Bar on Soi Cowboy and as always went upstairs.  Dozens of young'uns dancing and prancing about on the glass floor sometimes encumbered with a skimpy white blouse and sometimes not.  The place upstairs and downstairs was quite full of Japanese men.  I know Japanese men like a certain type but I still am not sure what attracts them to this bar.  Nothing wrong with the place but truth to tell the dancers upstairs and down are not as pretty as many of the girls standing about along the soi.  And after awhile even for those of us who are moral reprobates watching the chicks dance about does get a bit boring and we move on.  The Japanese stay.  A puzzlement.

******************* 

A friend of mine from the States was visiting and I mentioned to him that I know of men in the States whose wives won't allow them to have liquor or beer in the house, and they meekly submit to that and sometimes sneak a drink when they go out somewhere.  My friend topped that because he said his best friend's wife won't let him keep his collection of DVD's and CD's in the house.  Not sure why but he has to keep his collection in a friend's warehouse.  But that is also a problem because his wife disapproves of the friend whose warehouse it is.  Again I ask: When and why did American men become such pathetic wimps?

A STRANGE STORY

Those of us who have lived in the Land of Smiles have our own strange stories to tell and from time to time we hear of others.  Here is one about one of my friends, a fluent American Thai speaker married to a Thai.  We will call him Ben and her Boo.  Ben and Boo have been living a ways out of Bangkok and in the beginning, as with most marriages, had no problems that could not be solved with tenderness and kisses.  But Ben had made it clear to Boo that he would be going out from time to time without her.  She had accepted this (he thought).  As time passed, it was obvious that Boo was not particularly happy with this arrangement.  Eventually Boo showed up at a restaurant/bar where Ben was talking to one of the waitresses.  Ben felt Boo was crowding him and she felt he was not treating her fairly.  So in Thai they discussed exactly what his "going out" entailed and should entail and lo and behold their definitions were not exactly the same. 

So eventually Ben moved out on Boo and found another Thai woman (whom we will call Booger).  Then one fine day Ben received the first of three or four phone calls from a man claiming to be Booger's husband (whom we will call Bumpkin).  Ahah!  But Ben was no fool.  And so he asked Bumpkin what his "wife's" home language was and where she was from, etc.  The man said her house language was Thai and she was from Issarn.  Ah, no prize for Bumpkin because, alas, she was not in any way from Issarn and he seemed to know nothing about the woman he claimed to be his wife.  And Booger, of course, insisted she had never been married - certainly not to a Thai.

But the calls kept coming, culminating in a threat.  Something about my friend dying an untimely death.  My friend duly reported it to the police station.  For whatever good that would do.  But then Ben began to get suspicious.  For various reasons, he began to suspect that his wife or her niece had put up Bumpkin to pretend to be Booger's husband.  And, one day, when he met with Boo and her (stunning) niece Boo actually suggested a threesome if he stayed home to which Ben at first laughed.  But it seemed Boo was serious.  Whether or not she was, he declined the sensual but strange offer, as all good golfers would. 

And so there it stands but yet continues as Ben will be going back to get all his things from his apartment with Boo (good luck with that).  The moral of the story is, well, I'm not sure what the hell the moral is, but I guess it means before you hitch up with a woman you best make sure you are - look away if you hate clichés - on the same page.  I sure would like to see the niece though.  I will keep you informed if there are further developments in the continuing saga of Ben and Boo and Booger and Bumpkin. As I say, if you have lived in Thailand for some time, you no doubt have your own.

THE REWARDS (AND PUNISHMENTS) OF PATPONG

 

I seldom get to Patpong these days but when I do I always have a fun time.  I was heading for Cosmos when one of the doms sitting outside BarBar grabbed me and hustled me inside and up the stairs and into a room.  Despite my fervent protests, of course.

 

It seems I had been bad and unlike Santa she doesn't just not give me a present.  She did kindly let me photograph her legs in leather though, hmmm, yum, yum, yum!  I eventually walked or I should say limped over to Cosmos.  On the way, I was making up a cover story for my limp about how I saved a platoon in Nam by being a brave son of a bitch ignoring my own danger, etc., thereby getting me some free drinks, but when I went in I realized they were all at least as old as me and some had fought in the war and if they punctured my cover story and learned my limp was not from a war but from a recent encounter with a lady in leather, it might not have gone well for me.  Anyway, Patpong still has much to offer.

Letters from Readers

 

Hi Dean, 
As always, thanks for the biweekly submission.

Great photographs of your trip to Laos.  (Now, it's definitely on my list of countries to visit!)  Who was the woman who was taking a photograph of the monks standing in line?  7500 Lao baht for a Lao beer?  How many Lao "baht" equals 1 Thai baht?  Was that woman using a LOOM to create fabric?  Awesome!  Did you say "$1200" American dollars per night for a top suite at the Amantaka Hotel?  I would not have guessed that there was any place in Laos that would charge that much for a hotel room.

I wonder if the president of Thai Airways graduated from the London School of Economics the same year as Mick Jagger?  Ha! Ha!

I, probably like your other readers, am very disappointed to hear that you will only be publishing your column once per month starting in 2010.  I/We hope that you're kidding!  I believe that the picture is the rear entrance to Nana Plaza Hotel.  (Did I get it right?  Damn my ignorance!)
chok dee!
Craig-Ben

........................

 

 

Craig-Ben, I wish I knew who that woman was taking a photograph of the monks standing in line!  Yep, Amantaka Hotel's top suite in Luang Prabang costs one thousand two hundred American dollars a night.  Alas, if I want to get back to novel-writing and do some traveling, something has to give so I must go to once a month but thanks to the miracle of the internet will of course be adding material during the month if warranted. 

 

******************* 

Attn: Dean Barrett (as if that is your real name you are not fooling anyone) --

 Well, thank-you for putting another nail in my coffin of misery.  Apparently, there is no joyful heart you can not tear asunder.  To wit: in your last column you stated that you are considering  going from a twice per month schedule to a monthly schedule and you mentioned my name.  I am now  getting emails like the following: 

Dear Dana  Thanks for ruining my life.  Apparently Dean Barrett is going to go from every two weeks to once a month (maybe) for his column and you had something to do with it.  If you ever visit Godthab, Greenland look me up.  I will have the dogs tear you to pieces.  Fogir Danielson Bragnar 

Etc. . .  . I have, conservatively, received approximately 4000 emails like this.  There are now places on Earth I can not visit without imperiling my life.  I guess some big time published authors don't care who they hurt.  It's all about you.  Monster. 

Dana (and that's my real name not some made up name)

........................

Khun Dana (real name), Life is not fair, as JFK said (presumably before he was shot).  I thought I had made it quite clear that it was especially fear for your wellbeing that I decided to continue doing any columns at all.  But, we both know, there are dudballs who just don't get it; mean-spirited types who just like to cause trouble by deliberately twisting what is being said.  Please send me the 4,000 e-mails and I will tell each and every writer of those nasty messages the truth: that Khun Dana is a force for good (well, that is, assuming that the continuance of this column is a "good" thing - a large assumption indeed).  Best wishes to you and other Bostonians for the Holidays.

Kuhn Dean:

Very sorry to see that you are going to once-a-month column; I always look forward to reading, and actually think you are going the wrong way .. it should be a ONCE-A-WEEK column. After your couple-of-months trial, I hope you see the error of your ways.

Also, why the hell do you list
http://www.fredoneverything.net in the "links you might not enjoy" classification? He might be politically "incorrect" in the current context of US or UK governmentally imposed mindset, but that does surely not mean that most expats will not enjoy reading him and certainly does not make all he is saying patently wrong. Am I missing something?

Good luck,

Khun Steve

Steve, I hope the once-a-month columns will be longer than the twice a month columns, but time will tell is right.  Fred and I are buddies and I love his columns.  With his permission I placed them in the "Links You Might Not Enjoy" column for the politically correct among us.

Hello Dean,
Since the beginning of 2009 when I found your website, I've enjoyed reading it.  It's got it all, great looking gals, humor of all kinds, current topics, videos and much more.  Your site has been very helpful in planning my retirement celebration.  At the end of this year and at 47 years young, I'll be a retired cop.  Other than the affect a "few extra" free meals the local diners have provided me over the years, the job left me pretty unscathed.  To kick off my retirement, I'm planning a 3 month trip to the south east Asia region and would appreciate your advice on a few questions...The Mojo dancers are incredible.  As Mr. Mantalini from Dickens Nickolas Nickleby surely would have described them, "There's not finer demd beauty in all of demd Bangkok, demmit!"   Oops, the question being, does anyone, especially a farang, stand a reasonable chance at spending a night with a Mojo dancer?  I think you addressed that question once on your site, but I can't seem to track it down if it was.  Regards, Stu

 

........................


Stu, A young man like yourself in reasonably good shape and with a fat wallet might stand a chance with a Mojos dancer.  Why not try?  But would you start space travel by flying to another galaxy?  No, you would most likely start with something a bit easier - somewhere like the moon.  So why not start with Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza and Washington Square and once you have mastered the basics, then head for Mojos.  But do remember the Mojos girls are needed to dance and cannot be barfined during bar-open hours.  What they do when the bar closes is their business.

Islam is known for denying others the very tolerance it demands for itself.   Switzerland recently voted to ban minaret construction, outraging local Muslims, the majority of whom are from Kosovo and Turkey.  Yet, over a hundred historic Christian churches have been destroyed in Kosovo since 2000 (including this one, in which a Muslim is relieving himself).  (Thanks to www.thereligionofpeace.com)

Happening Now in America:

Islamic foot-washing basins in airports; Shariah finance being introduced by American banks; college campuses designating Islamic prayer rooms for Muslims only; Islamic compounds practicing Shariah law springing up across America; public schools using our tax dollars to indoctrinate American students into Islam; demands by Muslim parents that their children be provided private prayer rooms in their public schools; Muslim workers demanding special workplace accommodations no other religious person would ask for; and the list goes on.

Mohammad Playing with his Six-year-old Bride to Be

The so-called Prophet Muhammad Married a six-year-old named Aisha and had Sex with the girl by the time she was nine (if not before).  Mohammad ordered the death of two poets who mocked him as well as killed many others.  The Koran is full of hate for non-believers which it equates with "evil-doers."  Islam is not a religion: it is a fanatical brotherhood and hate-filled ideology.  The West continues to ignore the fact that Islam is a clear and present danger to anyone who believes in free speech, an independent judiciary, free press, etc., etc.  Self-censorship is now being practiced in Europe and America to appease Muslims.  The more Muslims a country lets in, the more problems it will have.

"All it takes for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

Ibn Warraq:

The cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten raise the most important question of our times: freedom of expression. Are we in the west going to cave into pressure from societies with a medieval mindset, or are we going to defend our most precious freedom -- freedom of expression, a freedom for which thousands of people sacrificed their lives? A democracy cannot survive long without freedom of expression, the freedom to argue, to dissent, even to insult and offend...Unless, we show some solidarity, unashamed, noisy, public solidarity with the Danish cartoonists, then the forces that are trying to impose on the Free West a totalitarian ideology will have won; the Islamization of Europe will have begun in earnest.

    "All religions take care to silence or to execute those who question them...It has, however, been some time since Judaism and Christianity resorted openly to torture and censorship. Not only did Islam begin by condemning all doubters to eternal fire, but it still claims the right to do so in almost all of its dominions, and still preaches that these same dominions can and must be extended by war." - Christopher Hitchens, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

    There is not one Muslim country in the world which gives equal rights to non-Muslims but when Muslims enter other countries they demand more than equal rights!  Write your congressman and tell him to stop kowtowing to Muslims.

     

    “Religion is an insult to human dignity.  With or without it, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things.  But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”        --        by Nobel Laureate physicist Steven Weinberg. 

     

     

    "Mohammad poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex...and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust: to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature" - John Quincy Adams

    FROM THE KORAN:
    —The unbelievers are your inveterate enemy. (4:101)
    —Mohammed is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. (48:29).
    —It is unlawful for a believer to kill another believer, accidents excepted. (4:92)
    —Believers, take neither the Jews nor the Christians for your friends. (5:51)
    —Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme. (8:40)
    —Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme. (2:193)
    —The true believers fight for the cause of God, but the infidels fight for the devil.  (4:76)
    —We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers. (3:151)
    —I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers. (8:12)


    FROM THE SAYINGS OF MUHAMMAD:
    —Muhammad said to the Jews: “If you embrace Islam, you will be safe. You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I want to expel you from this land. “
    — Allah’s Apostle said, “You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, ‘O ‘Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.‘ “
    —Mohammed said, “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and whoever says, “ None has the right to be worshipped but Allah , his life and property will be saved by me.“ (otherwise it will not). Vol. 4:196
    —Mohammed said, “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.“ Vol. 9:57
    —Mohammed said, “ No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir” (infidel). Vol. 9:50
    —Muhammad said: “Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, … “. (Sahih Muslim 4294)

    The Islamization of Europe

    Muslims are rapidly destroying freedom in Europe and have even brought about self-censorship and real censorship in the United States.  But there is one city in Holland where a new reality can be seen with the naked eye, more than anywhere else. Here, entire neighborhoods look as if they have been lifted from the Middle East, here stand the largest mosques in Europe, here parts of sharia law are applied in the courts and theaters, here many of the women go around veiled, here the mayor is a Muslim, the son of an imam.  This city is Rotterdam, Holland's second largest city by population, and the largest port in Europe by cargo volume.  Europeans, especially politicians, will not lift a finger to fight against Islamofascism.  And future generations will pay the price. 

    The hate-filled Quran (Koran) consistently uses offending remarks whenever it mentions non-Muslims. It describes non-Muslims as animals (Q.7: 179, Q.25: 44, Q.47: 12). Then it describes the Jews as donkeys Q. 62:5 then as apes and pigs (Q.2: 65, Q. 5:60, Q. 7:166). To be described as an animal is a bad insult in Arabic culture, but pigs, apes and donkeys are particularly bad.  "Religion of Peace," my ass. 

    ****************************************

    Please note, I do not and never would advocate violence against individual Muslims in any community.  For one thing, the guy you beat up with a baseball bat may turn out to have just escaped from some horrible Islamic regime.  Individual violence against Muslims or doing damage to mosques, etc., is just stupid and is also counterproductive as Muslim fanatics will show pictures of that all over the Muslim world to incite people against the West. 

    A good case can be made that Islam is a fanatical brotherhood masquerading as a religion, and, indeed, the adherents of Islam often act that way.   But, as individuals, a Muslim neighbor might possibly be more honest than a Christian neighbor.  It is only that the Muslim will have been brought up in a religion/brotherhood with a medieval mindset that is centuries behind the times and has a penchant for violence, especially against those who criticize the Koran and other aspects of Islam.   Winning the war against Muslim fanatics will take a long time and be hard-fought but it can and will be won.  But we must demand that more and more moderate Muslims join the fight against fanatical Muslims.   We must demand that our leaders absolutely reject any "compromise" on our right to free expression.  Compromising with the fanatics pulls the rug out from the Muslim moderates desperately trying to reform and secularize Islam.  And we must never bow to Muslim demands to curb our hard-won freedom of expression.   And freedom of expression always includes satire and even insulting satire including satire of glorified tribal myths called religion.

    “The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.  It should transcend a personal god and avoid dogmas and theology.  Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual and a meaningful unity.  Buddhism answers this description.  If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.” - Albert Einstein
