New York, Feb 10 (AN): Geshe Michael Roach is not just any other Buddhist monk who wears saffron robe or remain celibate.
The 57-year-old monk wears Armani suits, dances at Cielo, and enjoys "joining" with female followers.
"We [monks] are not allowed to have sex, but in yoga there are practices that involve joining with a partner," the New York Post quoted Roach as saying.
"They are secret . . . You might think of them as sex, but their purpose is to move inner energy. It takes very strict training. There would be penetration, but no release of semen," he added.
Talking about disco dancing, Roach said "If we don't make it fun and healthy, Buddhism will die out." (ANI)
