BIO

“Buddhist Kung Fu Rapper”

 

Buddha Z is the sassy nickname of Buddha Zhen.
He uses the shorter name when
He’s not teaching classes.
As Buddha Z he may not be as patient or polite;
Choosing words of poetry to inspire and incite
People to start kicking their own asses.

Buddha Z is a Shaolin Zen Buddhist master.
He teaches Kung Fu but sometimes cutting words are faster
To create awareness of something stupid.
Buddha Z was born Richard Del Connor
On February 4, 1954
In American Zen he plays Cupid.

Buddha Z performs heavy metal guitars
Playing with real drums–and drives real cars.
No toys or beats to cheat and be dumb.
Buddha Zhen plays the instruments–like a “real musician.”

Buddha Z has some punky poetry
And inspiritional Buddhism to share.
Even when he’s caustic and criticizing–
He’s doing it because he really does care.

With a younger audience–not yet Shaolin;
Perhaps Buddha Z can provide some information
To give today’s youth a better kick start.
Because in a world without parents caring
Because they only have time for work to be sharing…
Buddha Z will be a father’s heart.

Supersoul 13 was Buddha Z’s first book.
Give his Zen Buddhist poetry a closer look.
He writes between the lines.
The “4 Noble Truths” is a song and an album
Where enlightenment is inspired and welcome.
The ending of all war is one of his designs.
