Another teacher, Anagarika Munindra, once said to me, “The Buddha’s enlightenment solved the Buddha’s problem. Now you solve yours.” I felt quite inspired—as though I could ac- tually solve the problem of the unhappiness and confusion that had brought me to India to begin with.

It’s trendy among university students and other young people. The dharma has come to stay. If that’s obvious today, it wasn’t obvious twenty years ago, and the generational predominance of grey-hairs like me remains a concern. Since most dharma centers are affiliated with a particular tra- dition, the major Buddhist magazines and journals—Shambhala Sun, Tricycle, Buddhadharma, Turning Wheel—have been serving “Thirty Nine Buddhas, Den Haag,” by Michael Newhall XAVIERUNIVERSITY
