I am quickly becoming a fan of the Rubin Museum of Art (RMA.) It’s one of the few places in NYC that continues to impress me with its vast list of programs and exhibits available. There’s a dearth of good Asian art collections around the U.S. but RMA along with the Asia Society do a good job in filling the void.

So as part of their marketing campaign or whatever, RMA features a blogging monk on their site. For anyone who knows anything about the tenets of Buddhism, this blog will not be beneficial to you. To all those who want to read an entertaining encounter of an endearing monk who is getting acclimated to the big city—you’ve hit the jackpot.

While he does not preach and there is a lack of spiritual insight and satisfaction in his entries, what you do get the same amount of entertainment as you do in your favorite reality TV shows. Some silliness, some reactive commentary and basically things that wouldn’t be interesting if the blogger weren’t a Buddhist monk.
