Remember, that the main difference between what the Buddha taught and "popular Buddhism" (Mahayana) is that he rejected Vedic Brahmanism (now morphed into Hinduism) that Brahmins introduced into Mahayana Buddhism. One of these is the messianic idea that the goal of individuals to save all sentient beings by constantly being reborn with the goal of becoming a supremely enlightened buddha. You may want to investigate that assumption, perhaps by looking at it from a Theravada perspective. To help them you must help yourself simultaneously: practice your meditation before you think of prompting others to practice theirs. We'll follow up with you when you get to the jungle. Write in when you do.
