There are some aspects of Buddhism in modern pop culture today. For example, there are many famous Buddhists. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Tiger Woods and Sarah Jessica Parker are all Buddhist along with many more. There were also many movies made about Buddhism. Some of these movies include "Kundun," "The Life of Buddha" and "Little Buddha."
Many other things that represent Buddhism are present in pop culture. For example, many people in America meditate. Meditation is the Buddhists way of relaxing. During meditation Buddhists find right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration, all important parts of the eightfold path. Karma is also a part of pop culture.
