RE: [dana-giving] Re: Any ideas?
- My original intention in setting up the group was to transmit articles on
dana from the web. Now I am remembering the following short extract and what
I have learned so far from the group.
My teacher Ven Pannyavaro wrote:
"Information or Knowledge?
It has never been consider that the Buddha's teachings are to be found
only in the text, actually in the past the dharma was transmitted as
much through oral teachings. There is a temptation to merely dump data
(facts) online rather than exploit the new ways of presenting
information that the technology provides Data and information do not
necessarily translate into knowledge.
The temple approach in teaching the dharma is through sermons with the
teacher or the content being unchallenged. The new way is through group
learning via discussion. On the net its chat groups where the teacher or
moderator acts as a facilitator for an ongoing debate or discussion."
That's all for now.
Best Wishes / Antony.
