"For something that used to be totally dependent upon a person hiking all the way to the Himalayas, today you click a button and can actually get the same kind of experience".
Can be great opportunity. Or can also be how the meaning can get lost.
"It's essential to try to bring it down to a more grounded experience of Dharma, so that everything is not kept on the level of theory and intellectualization."http://buddhism.about.com/od/becomingab ... iances.htm
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
