Illusory Advice: Evangelising

Garden Silhouette, 2014, Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin
"The Bodhisattva vow isn’t about converting beings – that would be an extreme interpretation. Liberation is the intention, and beating people over the head with Buddhism is liable to be counter-productive. Samsara does not equate to ‘non-Buddhism.’ In our opinion it would be better to be a happy and kind Christian than a miserable and mean Buddhist."
