The Buddha and the barcode

Buddha and the barcode

What if anything do the 25-century-old teachings of the Buddha have to do with the modern world? The free e-book The Buddha and the barcode: understanding Buddhism in the twenty-first century (Helsinki / Dublin: into-ebooks / Dublin Buddhist Centre, 2011) presents an accessible introduction to the question, growing out of meditation and Buddhist teaching associated with the Dublin Buddhist Centre (Triratna) over the years. They are of course not responsible for my take on the subject.
