Buddhism for Vampires

This site opens an unusual path into some fascinating material. Combining fiction and theoretical essays, it mounts an expedition into zones of Buddhist learning and lore that have been overlaid in the West by New Age schmaltz. As the introduction insists:

According to mainstream tradition, vampires have practiced Buddhism, and some have even attained Buddhahood. No one can say this is an illegitimate topic, or some kind of Western commercial distortion. One could combine Buddhism and vampires in a cheap gimmick—but I believe it is possible to explain Buddhism accurately in the language of the undead. In fact, I believe some aspects of Buddhism are best explained that way.
