Shaolin Temple is acting like a corporate. What Buddhism is there when all they think of is to make money?

Nothing in the article indicates that the Shaolin Temple has any monetary interests in opening up a second temple in HK.

No?

Do you support the Shaolin Temple building a branch in Hong Kong costing 420 million HKD?

Where did the money come from?

At the same time, it will become a new scenic spot to attract tourists and garner economic benefits.

To both Hong Kong and Shaolin.

One netizen in Shanghai said, "Now that western culture is spreading everywhere, building a Shaolin Temple in Hong Kong means that Asian culture, represented by Shaolin, can fully rival Disneyland, which represents western culture."

This type of view is troubling. Shaolin is supposed to be a religious sect, NOT a themepark. If people sees it as a themepark, it's time to think WHY and HOW it happened.

It's a biased piece of article, but it will open up your eyes abit on the truth of Shaolin.
