With tradition old and wise with teachers who know how to read our minds, hearts, and other energy channels, digital invasion of privacy and staring at one via a hidden camera isn’t necessary. Why would such a thing be implemented by a Buddhist community? I don’t know. I believe in my mind. Perhaps there was an imminent danger to someone and watching them assured safety, perhaps looking at someone and influencing them mentally could show some interconnection. Perhaps it was needed in legal matters? Perhaps. Invasion of privacy isn’t necessary in Buddhism, hmmmm…. Needing digital devices to confirm our mind disempowers our minds. Privacy is natural thing for large majority of people, violating privacy bears serious consequences.
