Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, is 31 years old and is a modern Buddhist master. Karmapa believes that all forms of communication, including social media, are essential in order to develop our positive qualities. As Karmapa says:
“We all have a mind, and there is no mind without wisdom. Let us use our wisdom meaningfully, to see the nature of life. No matter how challenging things may seem at times when we look at the state of the world, there is always hope and a way to overcome these challenges.
Seeing the potential of young people in particular, all we need to do is share and communicate. By communicating and sharing our thoughts, the positive qualities that we all have, naturally emerge.”
