The song Lotus Sutra Boom Boom Boom is a 21st Century Hip Hop Buddhist song. This song clearly breaks away from the oriental culture and practice of Buddhist teachings. While Buddhism is most known as an Asian religion, Buddhism did not reach Asia until 1000 years after the Buddha's death. Buddhism came from India instead of Asia. All of the ancient icons of the Buddha Shakyamuni Buddha represent the ethnicity of a man of African decent. Ancient India was known as "Eastern Ethiopia."
Shakyamuni Buddha's highest teaching were expounded in his teachings called the "Lotus Sutra." Nichiren Shonin a 13th century Priest born in Japan revitalized the Buddha's teaching re-introducing the Lotus Sutra as the Buddha highest teachings.
Elmore at the time of the posting of this video has been a 40 year Nichiren Buddhist. Elmore notes that in order for Nichiren Buddhism to reach "Urban America" the propagation must be "inclusive" of urban culture. Elmore recorded the song in the heart of urban America in a part of Memphis, Tennessee called "New Chicago." Rap producer Walleon Bobo mixed and arranged the song for Elmore. Mr. Timothy Mckay a White African drummer performs the song with Anthony "Amp" Elmore. Tim Mckay a White was the 1st person to join the "Proud Black Buddhist World Association."
