Buddhist Social Media

Post by Perry » Fri Oct 14, 2016 11:36 pm

Hi everyone!

Just a short query, really - as a user of some social media (especially Twitter), does anybody have any good Facebook accounts/groups/pages, Twitter accounts and so on that are particularly enjoyable as Buddhists?

I've found myself heavily embracing the Dhamma again a few years of near-lapsing, and it'd be great to really get involved again :)

Thanks!

There is the Theravada Buddhist group https://www.facebook.com/groups/4975482891/

"Buddhism is a Philosophy of Peace" is a good page for inspiring images https://www.facebook.com/Buddhism-is-a- ... 5/?fref=ts

There are quite a few. I have friends who are monks, and I frequently see them utilizing these resources.

"A virtuous monk, Kotthita my friend, should attend in an appropriate way to the five clinging-aggregates as inconstant, stressful, a disease, a cancer, an arrow, painful, an affliction, alien, a dissolution, an emptiness, not-self."

Thankyou both!

It's good to keep as engaged as possible, I feel.
