They also talked loudly to warn Kaihung and allow him to hide. Some of the videos were reportedly homemade and starred the monk himself. Kaihung, who once held the position of secretary-general at the Chinese Young Buddhist Association, was considered a bright and devout disciple in the past. Monks at the Chongfa temple took him in about two months ago. He also claimed that the publishing of the videos online was part of a smear campaign against him.

Bob Hass, a writer and gay man in Sonoma, started practicing Buddhism about three years ago because he saw it as an open, nonjudgmental religion. No surprise then that he was confused and distraught to learn of published statements by the Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of many Buddhists around the world, declaring certain homosexual acts to be "sexual misconduct. The context was a book called "Beyond Dogma," published last year, in which the Dalai Lama wrote that oral and anal sex were proscribed for men and women. However, what added to the confusion were other apparently contradictory statements from the Dalai Lama indicating his approval of same-sex love.

As he prepares to meet today with gay Buddhist leaders, the Dalai Lama has clarified his position on the morality of homosexuality for Buddhists and non-Buddhists. His comments were an effort to clarify statements in a book -- "Beyond Dogma," published last year by North Atlantic Books in Berkeley -- that upset some gay Buddhists. The Dalai Lama said the same Buddhist scripture that advises against gay and lesbian sex also urges heterosexuals to refrain from oral sex, anal sex and masturbation. Steve Peskind , one of the gay Buddhists meeting with the Dalai Lama today, was disappointed with yesterday's remarks. The Tibetan leader noted that those same traditional texts that oppose oral and anal sex approve of vaginal sex with a prostitute.
