HH Dalai Lama on Buddhism in the West

03 Apr 2010 6:55 AM | Lama Christopher Coriat (Administrator)

...The essence of the Buddhist teachings does not change; wherever it goes it is suitable; however, the superficial aspects--certain rituals and ceremonies--are not necessarily suitable for a new environment; those things will change.... In any case, this generation--your generation--who are starting this new idea in new countries have a big responsibility to take the essence and adjust it to your own environment.
