How to Become a Buddhist, Courtesy of wikiHow

This wikiHow article tells you the 11 steps required to be a Buddhist, and is obviously geared towards a Western audience, so I thought it would be an interesting read.  I particularly enjoyed the cartoons.  This article does relate a lot of information about Buddhism, but as it says in the Warnings section at the end, you might want to research Buddhism a little more to avoid embarrassment due to your lack of knowledge. I feel that this article is a good example of how Asian religions are now being geared towards an American audience, by oversimplifying a complex religion into 11 steps for an unfamiliar audience, and by putting it on a wikiHow page.
