Buddhism in the world
It's all about tolerance. Tolerance for other people's actions and characteristics and tolerance for one's own thoughts and moods in a big bustling city, like New York. It's very hard not to judge -- is this person threatening? is this person kind? is this person a little crazy? Can I be calm in a crowd? On a line? Waiting while people push and shove? Where is the calmness? It's not easy to find in midtown New York!
