Well, in some essential way, it's the same. Everybody’s trying to become enlightened. That means be happy, be kind, and be wise. And behave nicely. They're all trying to do that. What Tibetan Buddhism is really though, as the Dali Lama never tires of saying, is the continuation of the whole shish kabob of Buddhism that developed in India over 1500 years. Tibet is the nearest place to North India. It was part of Indian civilization, a very constituted part.
But I digress. With Tibetan Buddhism reemerging back into the world today, the world has access to the original, big, huge flower of Buddhism that bloomed in India.
So Tibetan Buddhism, coming back to the question after a brief excursion, brings us back to the Buddhist civilization that the world needs now, which doesn't mean that the world needs religion. It means that the world needs to stop following this idea that human beings can't understand the world, that they have to follow authorities.
We need to stop this idea that human beings are basically violent and have to all be locked up or restrained. People have to understand that we can uncover deeper understandings that will make us happier. We can get along very well with other people, other races, other genders, other nations, whatever it is. That's the gift Tibetan Buddhism is bringing this back to the whole planet. It isn't making people members of some sect connected to some mysterious thing in Tibet that's going to allow them to escape.
