Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if they were! Instead of a tourist trap, it'd be an enlightenment vortex!
This morning I reimagined Time Square as Bodnath with a Giant Stupa where the ticket booth is.

If one refer to knowledge as basis as what in our current culture , yes there is right verses wrong , true verses false , good verses bad ... but perhaps Buddhism is not knowledge therefore in my current mind there is no right or wrong view ... as everyone is constantly in own Buddhism process same as us ... learning is a process , Buddhism is a natural process of realization not determination of knowledge.

That is a conceit, I think.
The Buddhist conceit is high, higher than the conceit of others who are not so fortunate like we are.
Joking.
Whether we seek God outside us or Dharma, Buddha outside us. :spy:
