I like the idea of future generations practicing Buddhism, but there seems to be a resurgence of people pushing Abrahamic religions in the media and gov, who knows how much longer until Buddhists are openly persecuted in Western countries. Lately it has been the Zionists with American Christian support, ganging up against the Muslims, religious identity being used by the Zionists to get American's support in Israel's crusade to retake the holy land. If Buddhism continues to grow then it will be seen as undermining American support of the Zionist agenda, or some other agenda. I think this time when people can practice religion freely in the USA will come to an end. I think we should try to get all our teachings and empowerments in order in the next 10 years in case cronies decide to put Buddhism on the chopping block in their social engineering project
I don't see that propagating Abrahamic religions has ever slowed down.
America's support of Israel politically has nothing to do with religious freedom.
All I see here is a weak attempt at trying to scare Buddhists into thinking they are under some kind of threat.
Are you sure that your conspiracy theory isn't anti-judaism disguised as anti-zionism?
From your statements, it doesn't seem that empowerments are what you need,
But you should definitely get more teachings, and study them, and as you suggest,
the sooner the better.
