Seeking editors for Theravādin Facebook Page

Post by dylanj » Tue Jun 13, 2017 6:16 am

https://www.facebook.com/noblebuddhadhamma/

Hello, I created the page & run it with a good friend of mine. It is going very well, I think, but I can see how a lot more people could be reached if the frequency of posts were increased & as is the two admins are having some trouble keeping things going.

A bit about it:
It is strictly Orthodox/Theravādin/Early Buddhist. The vast majority of content is direct excerpts from the suttas (currently I am trying to read the main 4 Nikāyas & so am posting from them as I go along) - otherwise the posts tend to be either quotes from Theravādin teachers or written by us admins ourselves, for example my co-admin has been doing a series of responses to Christian critics of Buddhism. But we prefer these latter two types of posts to be fewer in number than the former.

Anyone who can make quality posts aligned with the topic of the page & with images, proper citations, & fluent English (facebook also has a feature where you can make variants of posts in other languages to show to such audiences - if someone could do that it'd be astounding but it seems unlikely) is welcome to become an editor, but the two current admins would be especially comfortable with someone who is themselves strictly & faithfully Orthodox Buddhist - i.e. viewing the Nikāyas & Vinaya as authoritative - whether you accept the Abhidhamma is not of concern.

If you're interested send me a PM either here or:

Also anyone at all is free to send a friend request :)
susukhaṁ vata nibbānaṁ,
sammā­sambud­dha­desitaṁ;
asokaṁ virajaṁ khemaṁ,
yattha dukkhaṁ nirujjhatī


Oh! extinction is so very blissful,
As taught by the One Rightly Self-Awakened:
Sorrowless, stainless, secure;
Where suffering all ceases


etaṁ santaṁ etaṁ paṇītaṁ yadidaṁ sabbasaṅkhārasamatho sabbūpadhipaṭi nissaggo taṇhakkhayo virāgo nirodho nibbānaṁ

This is peaceful, this is excellent, that is: the stilling of all preparations, the relinquishment of all attachments, the destruction of craving, detachment, cessation, extinction.

I just wanted to wish you a ton of luck in this :)

The more resources for those looking to learn and be rightly guided the better. Good on you for putting time into such a practice.


Practice, Practice, Practice
