Western Buddhism? | by Ajahn Brahmavamso

In response to a question about the emergence of a Western form of Buddhism, Ajahn Brahm goes on to speak about the role of Buddhism in the modern world, and how ultimately the Dhamma taught by the Lord Buddha must have a universal appeal that is directly applicable to the human experience. After all, human beings are much the same wherever we may go, bound together by common experiences, and answering the common questions and problems of human experience is what Buddhism is all about.
