I agree. And I know that the Bhutanese love to see Western Sangha- I was received very warmly when I was there. Perhaps the Plum Village formulation of applied dharma in the context of the school environment could be successfully adapted to Bhutanese Buddhism. It would be wonderful to see a renewed interest in the dharma from Bhutanese young people. Bhutan offers a precious chance to preserve the Mahayana and Vajrayana heritage in an independent, Himalayan country.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.
