Writing a Facebook Sutra

by Sanghadhara

What would a Facebook Sutra say?
If a Buddha would emerge on the land of Facebook-Loka, what would he post? An Instagram image of the Wheel of Life? Perhaps to point out how greed, hatred and delusion are the digits with which that world is coded on?

A warning to dharma-farers about the dangers of that world and potential consequences on the rest of their existence, relationships, attention spam and the limiting of empathy, therefore, compassion and Wisdom.

How do we engage with social media? How as a Buddhist practitioners bring Dharma practice to that world, become aware of the pros and cons and become effective for the benefit of all beings?

Offering ideas, sharing reflection and placing further questions. Sanghadhara rambles on his Mexican accent. Enjoy it!
