[Buddha-l] modern buddhist teachers

Are there any modern Buddhist teachers who have seriously applied 
themselves to "modernizing" Buddhism, while simultaneously doing justice 
to it's 2500 years of tradition, AND, in doing so, have gained the 
respect of wide numbers of Buddhists across various sects?

In many ways it is an unfair comparison, but what I have in mind is 
whether or not there are any modern Buddhist teachers who have anything 
like the same kind of stature among 21st century Buddhists in Asia that 
one finds for Vivekananda, Aurobindo and Gandhi among Hindus?
