we were just talking about this issue, and I go to my in box and this quote was there from beliefnet.

A shaven head

Doesn't mean a contemplative.

The liar observing no duties,

Filled with greed & desire:

What kind of contemplative's he?

But whoever tunes out

The dissonance

Of his evil qualities

--large or small--

in every way

by bringing evil to consonance;

he's called a contemplative.

-Dhammapada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
