In this talk, Mitra Tyler Dewar applies the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings to the world of the internet, email, smart phones, tablets, blogs, computer crashes, YouTube, texting, Facebook, and tweeting – in short, the world where many of us spend many of our waking hours. What is the relationship between the cyber world and our physical world? What are the shortcomings and benefits of this world? Mitra Tyler encourages us to explore these questions with prajna.
How can we bring the world of technology to the path? With compelling examples, humor, and insight, Mitra Tyler helps us see how shamatha practice, prajna, paramita practices, and ultimate view can all help us work more skillfully with technology. Not simply speaking in generalities, Mitra Tyler identifies and addresses the specific problems we all face relating to and using technology. This talk includes extensive questions and answers. One talk on one DVD.
