    If motivation is sincere, then there is no problem. But if it's politically motivated, that's something different.

    I have always felt that the Buddhist culture can make a positive contribution to the rest of the world, because of its principle stress on compassion, and especially in the Mahayana tradition by its profession of nonviolence in various human activities.

    Chanting and prayer alone does not make a good practicing Buddhist. What is essential is that one must act with compassion, strive to understand life's complexities, and have faith in Buddha.

    - H.H. the Dalai Lama
