promoting dhamma by website

Post by confusedlayman »

If I want to promote dhamma by online website with my own intepretation.. will it mislead or no consequence as its responsiblity of practitioners to test and see for themselves?

how do i know if im eligible to spread my intepretation of dhamma in future? should I pass debate with senior monk who can approve if i understand propperly and can give permission?

I dont want to go to hell for misrepresenting buddha

Then it is best to wait to teach until your doubts and multitude of questions are allayed. You could easily spin yourself into big trouble here at this point. A in-person teacher is very important for you.

What about supporting the work of monastics who are already spreading Dhamma effectively online - either through donations, or by volunteering in some capacity, etc...?
