Celebrity Buddhist - Patrick Duffy

His also acted in other TV Series "Man from Atlantis", "Enola Gay" (the B29 that dropped the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima) and "Step by Step".
He told reporters in A & E "Bibliography" that he belongs to the Nichiren Sect (Japanese Pure Land) and recites om mani padme at least once a day.
