Among zen students in the West, the term has been associated with controversy and scandal, where several well-known 'roshis' have been accused of abusing their role, or, alternatively, zen students have been too naive and guilty of uncritical psychological projection.
This can't go in there without material to counter it, as the article given as a ref is extremely anti-zen. Also, it doesn't give examples past one guy: Baker. And there needs to be established why one man's actions merits an incrimination of an entire idea. Also: these are human beings, and they make human mistakes.
This needs to have counter-viewpoints added to balance it before it can be put back (IMHO). --DanielCD 20:52, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
