What has a Buddha to do with something like Patriotism?
Like the current Korean Stream 韩流, people are first curious and subsequently put efforts into knowing more about Korea, its customs, culture, lifestyle, and its population.
Likewise, Buddha Dharma's propagation too, begins with attracting the interest of sentient beings.
GM Lu shared many ways to "entice" mortals' interests to begin with and subsequently to teach them Buddha Dharma when they want to "Change"!
Ah! When you want to learn from GM Lu, you would start with reading his books and listening to his sermons.
However, if you have language barriers, you would start with translations.
Hehe! However, as time passes, you would realised that Translations do not fully "satisfy" you!
Then you commence to learn the Language that GM Lu teaches in!
BUT, do not rush to learn Chinese!
Look around you closely at those that Read, Write & Speak Chinese!
A mastery of the Chinese Language really do not give you an upper hand in understanding GM Lu's teachings!
To learn or not?
The Choice is always and has been Yours & Yours Alone!
Actors and actresses, somehow promoted their countries and Enticed the interests of foreigners, to visit their country and give a boost to their economies.
Think: How much human traffic has GM Lu brought into Taiwan all these years, boosting the economy with visitors' spendings in transport, food, accommodation,....?
Patriotism is also enriching one's country's economy, agree?
