The android priest that's revolutionizing Buddhism

It may seem like an out there move, but a 400-year-old Japanese temple has brought in a robot named Mindar to preach sermons.

The adult-sized android, modeled after Kannon Bodhisattva, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy, was introduced to the Kodaiji temple in Kyoto earlier this year.

Although some critics have compared it to "Frankenstein's monster," Mindar has gone down well with colleagues, who say it's doing wonders for the spiritual tradition founded by Siddhartha Gautama over 2,500 years ago.

"The big difference between a monk and a robot is that we are going to die," says Buddhist monk Tensho Goto, emphasizing the android's "immortality."

Jellyfish, "All I Want Is Everything"



Ever since I was a twinkle in my father's pants
They told me I could have it all and more when given chance
"We'll get you anything that you want"
A Ferrari on my 16th birthday
"We'll get you anything you need"
But what I need from you is so much more
All I wanna be is wanted
All I wanna be is wanted by you
All I wanna be is wanted
All I want is everything


I think I'd like to play guitar and be a Beatle and be so swell
And every show I would just dedicate this song to you
And as I envy all my fans
While I bitch about the price of fame
To my French maid Lou Ann
She looks attentive but she don't understand

Jellyfish, "I Wanna Stay Home"



When you need someone
And there's no one there
There is always the nine o'clock train
To take you out somewhere

I take the train in town
Like I did for years
There is only seven more blocks
I could walk from here

I wanna stay home
I wanna stay home right here
I wanna stay home today
I wanna stay

It's only six o'clock
When my day begins
There is always my alarm clock
To wake me up again

I wanna stay home
I wanna stay home right here
I wanna stay home today
I wanna stay

When I realize the weight
That's firmly on my shoulders
I just try and find the place
I can take a walk on my blind side

When these memories fade
In my ripe old age
Please remember my dear...

I wanna stay home
I wanna stay home right here
I wanna stay home today
I wanna stay

I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
