Q: Do you believe that youth today will be more inspired because you are in body a young person speaking and giving teachings?

HHK: Maybe, because I am included as youth. Because they are seeing my position as something special, because of that reason they are moved or they pay attention. I think that it is not that many appropriate effects are not possible. Because of that, for example, when I speak about Dharma, or teach or when I converse this one direction, the subjects I speak about most are related to the direction of Dharma. Although most of what I speak about is the traditional system, I speak about it in a contemporary manner with fresh thinking. In that way, even though they are modern people of the 21st century, because I know about these fundamental mediation techniques, and the self, for that reason, from one side the youth are able to receive the essence of those superb knowledge and moral, upright behaviors which have been passed down from ancient generations. And also, because now the world is very materialistic, if we have to be in such a place we have to make our mind stable, I assist them in being able to take care of themselves. I think it is possible that being able to stand on one’s own brings the appropriate benefit. It is like that in one way.
