That is a tasteless video.

We ban mention of groups for far less than what Aum did.

They were straight up murderers.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

What a complete tool.

The Last Podcast on the Left episodes about Aum Shinrikiyo are absolutely hilarious and truly get across what a pathetic idiot Shoko was. It was very fortunate that all of the cult's brains were utterly shredded from insane amounts LSD, or the sarin attacks could have been an order of magnitude worse than 9/11. Let alone the nuclear weapons they were trying to get access to, and all the sheep they murdered in Australia.

They also certainly killed maybe 50 people in addition to the Sarin attacks, the police just couldn't find any bodies.

Well said Tenma! I do believe you are starting to learn.
