You know we were talking about how important it is to study Buddhism, specially today. Buddha Shakyamuni said, that everything is matter of conditioning. And I believe education is one of the most crucial conditioning. It is the education that will make the difference in the future. And I believe that if today’s education system does have even a scant of Buddhist influence it will make a big difference in the world. Imagine a member of a senate in the United States government, someone who has, maybe not really a practicing Buddhist but someone who has quite a good knowledge on interdependent reality. Someone who has quite a good understanding on cause, conditions and consequences. I think there will be some difference. Imagine a CEO of an American automobile association. Having little bit of influence of the Buddhist education. I think it will make a big difference.
