There’s some bad things with social media. We know that.
There’s also some good things with social media. We know that too.
What’s awesome, is that some bad things, can become good things, via social media!
Here’s an example. A temple visit.
Pre-pandemic, going to temples, standing in a long queue, sometimes for many hours, and then ultimately being able to spend a grand total of 2 seconds at the sanctum sanctorum… Wow really futile effort, it would seem.
Now? Many temples after being closed to visitors, have gone digital. Not just in accepting donations, but also in installing state of the art cameras and broadcasting daily aartis as well as other rites. Live, for the whole world to see. And sometimes in such fantastic Ultra HD 4K clarity, that it’s impossible to get this even in the real place. And every day beautiful new dresses and ornamentation for the idol? Check.
Pretty amazing being daily social. Do check out the Siddhivinayak temple Twitter feed if you like!
