Lines of Flight is the subtitle for my explorations of culture within [post]modern Buddhism, under the main podcast entitled ‘Engage Dharma’ (I know, it gets complicated, but that’s how I am). The Engage Dharma podcast has somehow made it onto Apple Podcasts. I don’t know how it got there since I didn’t send it there, but well, it feels like my podcast has finally ‘arrived.’
Lines of Flight makes its foray into ‘Cyborg Buddhism’, which grew out of of my long-running passion and curiosity for thinking about the future of Buddhism. Although it has a very long history, I also think Buddhism has a possible future. It’s future is not so much the heroic-mythic story of Buddha as god-man-saviour, but Buddhist thought and practice as preparing us for a complex and difficult, even apocalyptic future. As Ocean Vuong is fond of saying (paraphrase): “In this world, no one comes to save you. But through transformation, I can move towards my own rescue.”
