My beloved Swans (AFL team) are going all Buddhist on me.

I've known for a while now that one of the co-captains Brett Kirk was into his Buddhism and now it seems it's spreading through.

On the weekend they got a visit from the Dalai Lama.

Apparently Jude Bolton thought that listening to a two minute chant was enough to understand their "deep culture"...

"You see them chant and just appreciate that they have such a deep culture, it was amazing to even get that one- or two-minute insight into what they are about," Bolton said.
I'm not sure that listen to a chant means you get any insight into what Buddhists are on about Jude... but oh well... I'm also not sure that chanting = deep culture... but perhaps when compared to a culture of playing footy and drinking lots of beer I can understand where he's coming from in his assessment!
