It’s been over two years since Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys died. For those of us who grew up on Licensed to Ill, it’s a loss hard to forget.

Yauch was an outspoken Buddhist and to honor Yauch, a group of Buddhist monks went down to Union Square. What these monks did next was something no one could have expected.

Forget silent support or meditation. These Buddhists came to boogie!
