On this Vesak Day I share with my friends a group of music celebrities who are Buddhists. I only list those I am familiar with as there may be names of others you might like to add.
This practice of Buddhism has been around for over 2,600 years and in Asian countries it has
existed peacefully with Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, etc., but it
was only in the past two decades or so that the philosophy has taken off into traditionally non-Buddhist countries and embraced.
In the U.S., U.K. and other western communities, film stars, musicians and other top names promote the message
of Buddhism in their movies, music and lifestyles.
Here they are:
Gene Vincent (?)
Sting - Gordon Sumner
