He's very admirable and completely correct. The Japanese authorities have drastically overreacted: there are reports that Tomioka is registering 8.2 micro sieverts/hr. If this was correct and not considering radioactive decay (because it's 3:21 am) or hot spots, then he has absorbed ~ 7.2 rads over the last year. This is negligible radiation. Clean up should have begun already at least in some places.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
