“NTI offers a way to view the world, a way to view reality and a way to view myself – what I am; what life is. It is a framework I can take and try to live within it, and practice, in order to become a better human being. The future of the Institute will be quite remarkable in terms of putting together a university – this place will attract an incredible resource of teachers and provide an amazing opportunity for people to learn about Buddhism and put Buddhism into practice.”
