There is no safety in samsara, in cyclic existence. Jetsunma asks us to look around and see the faults of cyclic existence. She also tells us in order to truly end suffering, to truly protect loved ones and all sentient beings, we must go against the grain of our cultural upbringing. "To be a Buddhist in the West, you have to have courage."
