Overview

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in the cosmic religion for the future: It trancends a personal God, avoids dogma and theology; it covers both the natural and the spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity."
Albert Einstein


Although Buddhism originated in India, the teachings of the Buddha and the lineages of awakening were preserved, deepened and clarified in Tibet. The invasion of Tibet by Communist China led to the exile of many of the most highly experienced and respected Tibetan Buddhist meditation masters, who almost immediately began teaching Western students. Many of these students have now become accomplished teachers themselves.

This dharmic feast, now spread out before us in the West, includes a growing array of insights and practices of more and more astonishing richness, power and clarity, from a host of superb teachers, translators editors and publishers, all attracting committed students and curious visitors. And now the Internet makes it even easier to locate resources to further ones interest.

What the Internet won't do is make it easier to sit down on a meditation cushion, or face the ways we mislead ourselves. It can, though, help find people to study with, and practice with, and to laugh with at the many ways we find for misleading ourselves.

An ancient prophesy speaks of the darkest hour of the dark age, when the rivers of materialism burst their banks, and plague, famine, greed and warefare beset desperate people everywhere. That Dark Age -- which may be right about now -- will also be known as the Golden Age, because many living buddhas will choose to be born at that time, bringing the precious healing Dharma to anyone ready to receive it.  May it be so!
