HUE, VIETNAM - JANUARY 25: Buddhist monks and nuns wait for the arrival of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh for a ceremony marking the first day of Lunar New Year at Tu Hieu temple on January 25, 2020 in Hue, Vietnam. As one of the most important figures in the fields of mindfulness, meditation and Zen Buddhism, the 93-year-old Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh has had a major influence around the world. His human rights and reconciliation work during the Vietnam War led Martin Luther King Jr. to nominate him for a Nobel Prize. He is now back in the temple where he took his vows at 16, after 40 years of exile, to live his final days. The Lunar New Year also known as the Spring Festival, which is based on the Lunisolar Chinese calendar, falls on January 25 this year and marks the Year of the Rat. (Photo by Linh Pham/Getty Images)

Have you seen the Japanese Buddhist monk who goes by the name Kossan1108?  He posts videos of himself overdubbing his own vocals and traditional instruments to classic rock songs.

Here’s one of him doing Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”. He starts singing at 1:08.  There’s a random weird voice for about 13 seconds starting at 3:20.  The song ends at 5:02, and then he meditates through the rest of the clip
