The Lotus Sutra Dip Buddhist dance Soul Song is a song written, produced and performed by Anthony "Amp" Elmore President and Founder of the "Proud Black Buddhist World Association."
Elmore notes that the Gift of Rice Gosho written by Nichiren Shonin the 13th Century messenger of the Buddha Shakyamuni notes that the "Lotus Sutra" teaches that in the end "Secular matters are the entirety of Buddhism."
Elmore purposefully created this song to challenge the Asian cultural domination that excludes African and African/American culture and history from its Buddhist teachings and propagation. Elmore notes that such Asian cultural domination borders racism and that the "Lotus Sutra" is inclusive of all cultural secular matters.
Elmore created a clear and dynamic African/American song that is both religious and secular. This song is clearly "inclusive of both African and African/American culture. The dancing video is inclusive of both Africans and African/Americans who both express dance in an African cultural expression. Elmore created a song and dance beat that is clearly a universal African expression. The crowd dancing video was filmed over 41 years after the song was created. The African women while contemporary and living in Africa demonstrate the same dance moves as their African/American counter parts.
