I heard someone muttering about Buddhist symbology involved in the Pokemon characters recently. I haven't heard ANYONE mention the stuff I see in DBZ that relates directly to Buddhist symbols--some of which are considered occult in our society.
(Education time: occult means "hidden," not "evil."
Seriously. I'm talking about the "Awakening of hidden powers," (Kundalini), the guy with the third eye, the characters fighting with mantras, even the dudes walking around with their crown chakras (halos) opened up.
There is some major voodoo going on in that cartoon! Just for the record--I watch DBZ every night, and we let our kids watch it. I am Christian, but I also like Buddhism...(just to fend off any attacks from people I might actually agree with!
