THE VALUE OF HINDU CULTURE FOR THE WORLD
An American Yoga teacher and friend of mine, who also studies Tibetan Buddhism, told me once that he was given a great new secret and powerful meditation teaching from a Lama, unlike anything he had gotten from his Yoga teacher, who stressed Hatha Yoga, though he had lived and studied with him four years in India. This practice was meditating on a Tibetan deity and doing a puja to it.

When I told him that such puja and devotional meditation was the main practice of Hinduism and was much more developed in the Hindu tradition than the Buddhist. Which had largely adopted it from the Hindu, he was shocked. 

Why had he not heard of this from his own teacher ? When he had asked for religious instruction from his Hindu teacher, he was told to stick to Christian approaches, which was particularly disturbing to him as his own religious background was Jewish ! The point of all this is that culture is not necessarily a detriment to the spread of spiritual knowledge, any more than it is a detriment to its arising.
