"So how do we fight asana predators?...many of them, like this gentleman, are “good guys” who have strong reputations in their communites."

are you kidding me? what difference does it make if some guy has a "strong reputation" in the community? what does that mean? that nothing is to be said to him?

if the words of your friend do nothing to deter this guy, then it is the studio owner's responsibility to say something and if it comes to it, tell him not to come back.

I actually used your statement "Buddhism concludes we are nothing" in my dharma talk last night, Bob. I asked my students how can we be nothing when we have buddhanature? and then we went on to talk about anatta....

so thanks!

"In the end, it is not a pissing contest, although many Westerners attempt to make it so. And that's where they get lost. Neither Yoga nor Buddhism will be an effective path, when the mind is twisted and attached to such dualistic ideas as "this vs. that"."

also want to say: love that!

In nothing there is everything.

I had the same discussion with Mark Whitwell where I told him that I was sorry that the Buddhists he knows are such life denyers, which is basically what you are saying, Bob. Emptiness is not nothingness and once I truly got that, it was liberation. I think the Buddhist concept of emptiness is the most misunderstood and gives Buddhism its nihilistic label.

I think this is one of the best sites I have found for explanations:
