This book arose from the challenges that Buddhist teachers face in adapting the presentation of Buddhism, with its origins in different Asian countries, to western, and more recently, African understanding. We hope that the book will help to make the deep benefits of Buddhism accessible to more beings.

We asked seven teachers from around the world to answer seven questions to shed light on some of the main issues arising from this cultural adaptation as Buddhism moves from Asia to the West and Africa.
