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

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
-Ayacana Sutta

I bet Yang would beat Beto in a game of S.K.A.T.E. (its a skateboarding game, kind of like H.O.R.S.E. in basketball, where one person does a trick and then everyone else has to do the same one or pick up a letter. First one to spell SKATE loses):
Jezebel: I guess you and Beto will have to have a punk or poseur competition.

Yang: I will say one thing I’d be interested in doing: Some kind of skate-off with Beto because I also skated.

If Beto is open to it, I’m open to it.
He apparently was a punk/goth/new waver back in high school. First concert was Depeche Mode.
