Lama Jigme Gyatso
The Folly of Facebook Friend-requests - 12sep21
are one of the many follies of Facebook.
For if a stranger reaches out,
yet the months go by
with nary a note, a comment,
a question, or a meme
then they haven’t really become a friend,
They’ve just become an audience member.
And audience members are great
if you have a group,
and wish to use it as a soap box
upon which to proclaim your answers
to all the world’s woes.
Life is short and friendships are rare.
They’re worth the trouble they take to cultivate.
Like the trouble a young Anakin took
to refurbish the protocol droid
he salvaged from a scrap heap.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported
not by monasteries but by students
as such the production of these livestreams,
blogs, and class materials is supported
by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers
just like you.
