In the past, the Dalai Lama has spoken of the wonders and dangers of modern technologies. While he believes they will play a crucial part in our future, he said we must be wary of becoming slaves to technology and allowing it to dictate our lives.
“Without technology, humanity has no future, but we have to be careful that we don’t become so mechanized that we lose our human feelings,” he said in 2015 at an event in Surat, India.
