The point is…

om_mani_padme_humvv“The point is that we are not all trying to become Tibetans or Japanese. What we are trying to do it become better people. So without any of the Buddhist jargon, if you are becoming a kinder, more thoughtful, more generous, more centered person, then people will look at that and think, well this looks like a good thing. It really works. This person is not nearly as irritable and selfish as they used to be, they are much more thoughtful, they’re much more kind, they’re much more peaceful, this must be a good thing. That’s the best way to teach Buddhism. Not through jargon, but through example.”
