I'm really not fond of that model. One problem I have with the model of Eastern spirituality that has made its way "here" is that it over emphasizes the path of the ascetic. Not everyone is meant to live that path. Not everyone needs to separate themselves from everything in order to grow spiritually. Some folks need to get attached, to fuck and breed else the entire community go the way of the Shakers. Others have different paths.

Oddly enough, there's a lot of fast-reproducing Buddhist societies out there. I think the goal is not asceticism, because there's no necessary relationship between attachment and love/sex.
